26.3

Raina to Bravo, 1 run, OUT, The hotel runs out of rooms. In fact the intercom has conked off. Hyatt is gone. Back of a length outside off, Bravo cuts it to deep point and they think of two. Hyatt ambled to the batting end and turned blind. Bravo was hollering a series of "No!"s from the bowler's end, he wasn't looking for the second at all once Vinay fired in a powerful throw. Hyatt hears him only when he is close enough to. Parthiv manages to collect and break the stumps, despite coming close to falling down in anticipatory glee.
