7.1

Vettori to Patel, no run, whipped away off the pads, finds square leg

Vettori to Patel, 1 run, straighter one, worked away off the pads for one

9.5

Vettori to Jayawardene, no run, nicely flighted, around off and thereabouts, Mahela defends

9.6

Vettori to Jayawardene, OUT, DannyV bowls a peach here, and Mahela looks at the pitch as if it is somebody who has let him down. This is flatter, quicker, pitched outside off, just short of driving length, Mahela looks to push it into the off side, gets a thin edge as the ball turns sharply and kisses the edge on the way to de Villiers. And by the way - not that there is anything wrong with not walking - Mahela is not a walker, unlike many believe him to be

DPMD Jayawardene c †de Villiers b Vettori 3 (7m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 42.85

15.5

Vettori to Gomez, no run, quicker, fuller, around off, defended back to him
