    0.2 this is catching practice really. There is a short midwicket in place, the ball is flighted on middle and off, it is turning, and with the turn he offers a simple catch to B McCullum to make it an all McCullum dismissal. Unlike Watling, though, Sibanda gets a regulation, non-exotic duck 0/1

    25.4 Silence. You can hear a chair creek at Queen's. Masakadza slogs across one, Oram stays straight. On a length it pitches, beats the swinging bat, and hits top of middle 159/3
    17.6 What a catch. These McCullums have wings, man. Taylor tries to clear mid-off, and seems like he will do it. Nathan McCullum, though, waits for a second, and then times his jump go perfection to make this catch look easy 100/2
    29.6 These McCullum brothers have magnets or what? Poor analogy because the ball is not metal. Anyway, another catch for the McCullums, and what a big wicket. Taibu looks for the inside-out drive, hits it uppishly, and B McCullum dives to his left to take this. That's four catches between the brothers out of the five wickets to fall 183/5
    26.4 Boy these McCullums are flying everywhere. This is short, turns a touch extra, hurries him into the an uppish flick, and N McCullum goes parallel to his left to make this catch happen. He even manages to make it look easy 164/4

    43.6 Oh what have you done Elton? Length ball all right, but he swipes across it, the head falls away, the bat swings down the wrong line, and the middle stump is uprooted. The usually soft-spoken Oram has a lot to say now. Not sure if it is directed at Chigumbura 295/6
    44.3 poor poor cricket from Meth. Charges at him without any purpose. Woodcock bowls a straight length ball, he wafts down the wrong line, and is bowled. Mindless really 296/7
    46.5 Stunned silence again. Natsai jumps out of the crease and swings blindly again. Middle stump knocked over. Woodcock is elated, Waller looks on 308/8
    49.4 the game stays alive, but Price might have done just enough. Short of a length, Price tries to clear the leg-side field. The top edge goes nowhere, but Waller makes sure he moves to the striking end by the time the catch is taken 328/9
