    11.4 great bowling from Pollard, a full-length slower ball, and Razzaq completely mis-times his drive back to the bowler 94/2
    2.5 an enormous steepler! A loose pull, a top-edge, there's snow on the ball before it reaches Pollard, who snaffles it with consummate ease 24/1
    12.6 that was coming all over long! The tourniquet had been tightened, and Jefferson falls! Very full, very straight, and that stuck the back knee as another sweep was missed. Big Will hints there might have been an under-edge, but he's got to go 96/3
    14.3 reverse sweep, but Kirby pre-empted the stroke and was in position at backward point by the time the ball arrived! 102/5
    13.6 astounding! Pollard needed four grabs to intercept a swish to mid-off, but he just saved the ball as it plummeted to earth 101/4
    18.4 brilliant from Thomas at deep extra. Lofted drive from McDonald, the fielder made good ground, slid in to gather, and Leicestershire haven't reached the boundary for almost five overs 127/6

    4.4 brilliant from Hoggard, who wins the battle of nerves. Another back-of-a-length delivery, Tresco pulls urgently, but picks out midwicket. He's built the pressure well, and earned his reward 31/1
    6.4 mind over matter for McDonald! He's got the ball down the track somehow ... and how! A perfect cutter, crashes off an inside edge and into the stumps! 42/2
    14.2 short, pulled, high on the bat, out to deep midwicket, and Boyce the super-sub slides round to snaffle it! Brilliant from Leicestershire, and Somerset are wobbling! 95/5
    12.4 a rare aggressive stroke, and that's the breakthrough Leicestershire need! A touch shorter and quicker, a swivel pull, and Boyce on the rope timed his leap as he ran round, and made the key breakthrough! 84/3
    13.4 Paul Nixon, take a final bow! What an absolute screamer! If he was 20 years old and making his debut he could not have been more pumped up, or athletic! Outside off, a wild swipe, a fat edge, and Nixon leapt like a rampant salmon to cling on with his right mitt! 89/4
    16.2 hoisted into the night sky, but Buttler hasn't got the legs, and Boyce once again is the safe pair of hands! Another great catch, he had about half a foot of room before treading on the rope. Good awareness 103/7
    14.4 a big moment ... is this a run-out at the non-striker's end? Yes, he's out! Driven hard back down the ground, where Cobb gathered and used the momentum to drag his own arm to the stumps! Suppiah hardly had time to move, and he didn't even face! 97/6
    19.2 well, he hit it well, but it went straight up in the air! Taylor called at point, and it was easily snaffled! 122/9
    18.2 slogged to deep midwicket, it's Boyce ... it's out! 115/8
