    12.2 McCollum looks to play the ball into the legside, misses and is pinned on the back foot. The appeal goes up and Umpire Neill has no doubts and the finger goes up. Looks like McCollum doesn't agree! 21/2

    13.3 what a delivery from McKinley. Anderson reaches forward to a full ball and the ball comes back in off the pitch. Through the gap between bat and pad, the off-stump gets knocked out of the ground and Anderson is gone for a duck. 47/2
