8.6

Steyn to Vijay, OUT, Clatter! Vijay shoulders arms and hears the death knell. It landed outside off stump, hit the seam and cut in. Vijay lifted his bat in the air and allowed it to pass him but a nasty little surprise awaited him. The ball moved in off the seam to take out the off stump. Crash! Thanks for coming Steyen sticks out his tongue as he reaches the rest of his team-mates. Was it an intended outswinger that hit the seam and came in? Or was it cos of something else, a cheeky joy at a plan to surprise him with an inswinger coming off? . we might never know. Update We do know now. Here's Steyn on this dismissal: "I worked him [Vijay] out quite nicely with two balls that went away and then bringing one back in which he left. That kind of stuff just doesn't happen out in the middle. We've really planned it. "

M Vijay b Steyn 4 (15m 13b 1x4 0x6) SR: 30.76
