    17 and finally Blizzard falls too, clears the front leg and goes for a big slog to that back of a length delivery, didn't got the elevation as he ends up skying towards the deep square leg, Handscomb runs forward and holds it. 83/6
    14.2 that slides in from a length, touch quicker as McDonald clears the front leg for a big heave, misses it completely and ball knocks the stumps, the partnership comes to an end which was of 59 runs. 68/4
    16.4 another one, that's on a length and moving away, leans forward and tries to drive it through cover, gets an inside edge which ricochet back onto the stumps. 82/5
