    4.5 sensational catch! Looked to smash that over cover but didn't get to the pitch of the ball and ended up slicing it to point where Porterfield threw himself to his left and caught that with both hands. The danger man is gone 19/1
    8 what a catch! That is special. The pressure of dot balls got to Tarakai. Murtagh, like he has been doing, takes pace off the ball with an offcutter. Tarakai goes through with a lofted drive but gets more elevation than distance. It hags in the air for a while. The fielder at long-on scurries across to his right, keeps his eyes on the ball all along and takes a lovely catch at deep midwicket. It doesn't have the aesthetics of a one-handed screamer but that is a brilliant take. Needed so many things to go right, did 'em all. 25/2

    24.4 done in this time! Stanikzai goes. Against the ball turning away, that's a dangerous option because if it does spin, then it opens you up to this. Stanikzai wanted to hit that over long-on again but takes the outside half and skews down to long-off. The previous six was also fraught with risk, but that one didn't turn and he got closer to the pitch. This one, he was done in by good bowling. The length was shorter 98/3
