14.1

Broad to Styris, 1 run, into his pads and turned from the crease behind square on the leg side

14.5

Broad to Styris, OUT, short, he pulls from outside off and Mascarenhas at shortish midwicket takes a really good catch above his head. It was slightly too short for the pull and that's why he couldn't get on top of it and ended up playing more of a tennis swat

SB Styris c Mascarenhas b Broad 3 (16m 11b 0x4 0x6) SR: 27.27

New Zealand 53/4   SB Styris 3 (11b)
