Mills to Swann, 1 run, dropped ... thumped to midwicket, an inch off the ground by the time it reaches the diving fielder. That would have been an amazing catch ...

Southee to Swann, 1 run, good length and a hint of inswing, Swann can do no more than work the ball to long-on

Southee to Swann, FOUR, wide and full, two feet off a yorker, Swann leans back and places the ball between fielders behind square on the off

19.6

Southee to Swann, 1 run, driven to long-off, it should have been one but Sidebottom was coming back come what may ... th throw was not great and there could have been an overthrow had Sidebottom not been going so fast to make his ground at the non-striker's end
