    10.1 moving back, ball stays low, into the pads, be off with you 39/1
    28.2 pitching outside the off stump, spinning in a little, Gooders with the lofted sweep shot over the forward square leg and down Moody's Gregory Peck 153/2
    29.1 and here comes the ZCU official standard issue collapse, very slow ball from Reiffel, I think he was just aiming for the pitch, Flower playing some very early backfoot defence, ball flicks the outside edge to the keeper 154/3
    35.2 ball aimed down the leg side, Campbell whacking it away, only problem is it's straight to Fleming at long leg, takes a good catch on one knee 188/4
    35.5 Whitters has a little panic attack, comes down the pitch, driving on the off side, straight down the mid off's nanny goat 189/5
    38.5 playing and missing outside the off stump, stretching too far and straying the back foot out of the crease, bails off, panaeye camera shows the foot was on the line 200/6
