    3.5 on the back foot, woeful shot, trying to half cut a ball that was too close, would've been a great shot if there was no slips but there was two of them, Thorpe being at 1st slip 7/1
    26.3 and the bowling change does the business, it makes a difference using a real bowler, Gough grabs the inside edge, and Stewart with an excellent diving take down the leg side 107/2
    40.1 coming down the wicket, trying for a big straight drive, misplayed badly, flies high into the air, Gough moves around slightly from mid on to take a safe catch 150/6
    29 brilliant ball, pitching on the off stump, then seaming in middle and leg, Odumbe trying to drive thru the off side, well missed, Gough 100 wickets in ODIs 115/3
    33.1 the arm ball stays straight and grabs the inside edge past the leg stump, may as well slash his wrists rather than take that run, and Fairbrother manages to hit the bowler's end direct to top it off 130/4
