Narine to Uthappa, no run, goes for the sweep yet again but does not get any bat on it, lobs up off the pad

4.4

Narine to Uthappa, no run, appeal for stumping and the third ump's being called here. flighted up to the bat and he was looking to drive it over the bowler's head, misses and the keeper needs some time before he dislodges the bails, by which time he's back
