17.1

Southee to Yuvraj Singh, 1 wide, this is sufficiently wide outside off to not be argued about

17.1

Southee to Yuvraj Singh, 1 wide, another wide - the plan seems to be to go full and wide, and twice he has been too wide

17.1

Southee to Yuvraj Singh, 1 run, legal delivery this time, driven to sweeper-cover for one

17.2

Southee to Marsh, FOUR, Pummelled! Sothee misses the yorker by inches, and he smashes it down the ground and along the ground. There is a long-off, but he hardly has to run to his left and save this

17.3

Southee to Marsh, 1 run, gets the yorker right this time, will only be a single to long-off

17.4

Southee to Yuvraj Singh, 1 run, low full toss, whipped towards midwicket, hits Jakati on the half-volley. He takes the single off the ricochet

Southee to Yuvraj Singh, 2 runs, plays the scoop, Southee sees him looking for it, and bowls wide of off, but Yuvraj still manages enough connection to clear the short fine leg

19.2

Southee to Yuvraj Singh, SIX, That is Yuvraj... clean swing, clean connection, and six down the ground. He is down on a knee, the length ball lets him get under it, and he goes over long-off

19.3

Southee to Yuvraj Singh, no run, good comeback, inch perfect yorker, dug out back to Southee

19.4

Southee to Yuvraj Singh, SIX, misses the yorker again, this time on the other side. This is a low full toss, and how well and effortlessly Yuvraj has sent it sailing over midwicket. We are talking of inches as the margin of error here

19.5

Southee to Yuvraj Singh, no run, this is better, almost a yorker, Yuvraj looks to open the face on it, and is beaten outside off
