2.4

Khan to Smith, no run, and this one is almost dragged on to the stumps! It was a length delivery outside off but Smith is so worried about his off stump that he decides very late to leave it and as he lifted his bat in the air, the ball collided with the inside edge and the ball rolled past the off stump. Zaheer has a few words to say to Smith

2.5
