Kumar to Hughes, FOUR, 134 kph, one of the stranger shots you will see as Hughes plays an improvised short arm pull to a delivery which kept rather low, with a rather extravagant follow through

6.4

Kumar to Hughes, OUT, 132 kph, shortish delivery which Hughes tries to pull away but ends up hitting this sweetly to Virat Kohli stationed at square leg, who makes an excellent dive to his left to hold on to the chance. Excellent fielding which has resulted in the loss of an early wicket for Australia.
