Singh to McCullum, FOUR, gets the treatment, a real loosener, short and wide, latches onto it, dispatching it between cover and cover point for a boundary

Singh to McCullum, 1 wide, down the leg side, there have been too many of these at the wrong times in this tournament

Harris to McCullum, OUT, gives it away this time, survived a couple of scares but fails to take advantage, short on the off, usually plays the pull well but not quite so this time, got the top edge and Suman at square leg ran back a few steps to pouch a well-judged catch

BB McCullum c Suman b Harris 20 (18b 1x4 1x6) SR: 111.11
