View dismissal CH Gayle lbw b Agarkar 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
0.1 Agarkar strikes first ball, an identical dismissal to the Cuttack game, a virtual replay really, Agarkar pitches that ball around the off stump, it straightens back into Gayle who hardly moves hiw feet, the ball thuds into the pad first before hitting the bat and Billy Bowden says that's out, he's got it right too 0/1
