    1.5 fuller, wider, but not full enough for the flat-bat loft over the covers. He throws his bat at it, ends up slicing it high in the air off the outside half of his bat, and Krunal Pandya comes in from third man to take a simple catch 8/1
    17.3 slower ball, shorter this time, following Tiwary's movement away from the leg stump. Tiwary has been visibly tiring over the last few overs, and he didn't have the strength left to muscle a slower ball over the man stationed at deep midwicket. Hits it straight into his lap 138/4
    9.2 back of a length outside off, and Smith's attempted dab ends up going too fine. He was looking at the fine third man region, and ends up finding the keeper's gloves. Parthiv read the play well and took a step to his right before he dived 92/2
    12.1 flat length ball on off stump, and it's perhaps a touch quicker than Handscomb would like as he reaches out to sweep it. He's not able to far enough forward to get on top of the ball, and it bounces, takes his top edge, and finds the man at deep square leg 105/3
    19.2 shortish on off stump, pulled in the air, and Rayudu comes quickly off the deep midwicket boundary to take a simple catch 149/5
