1b
Cooper to Bailey, 1 bye, this was a low full toss down the leg side but Bailey moved a long way across the stumps to swing, he missed and the keeper has some work to do to collect that, the umpire signals a bye but Bailey was a bit perplexed and was expecting a wide, he has a discussion with the two umpires and their decision is final. Nothing heated, just an enqiry
