  • BA Knowles0 (5b)
  • BR Dorey14 (38b)
  • B Laughlin10-1-33-3

So it all comes down to this, 3 required off one Simpson over, with 2 wickets in hand. What a way to start the new season!

Laughlin to Knowles, no run, and again beats the outside edge, very unlucky not to have a fourth there, the end of a great spell

Is there another twist?

Laughlin to Noffke, OUT, length on leg, flicked to square leg who takes comfortably low to his left

END OF OVER:
48 | 9 Runs | WA: 159/7 (3 runs required from 12 balls, RR: 3.31, RRR: 1.50)

  • AA Noffke43 (73b)
  • BR Dorey14 (38b)
  • CP Simpson9-0-43-0

Noffke the raging favourite to be Man of the Match with 1/19 off 10 and a so far unbeaten 43

Simpson to Noffke, 1 run, advances and punches it down to long on

Rimmington to Noffke, 1 run, full and driven to long off

END OF OVER:
46 | 3 Runs | WA: 144/7 (18 runs required from 24 balls, RR: 3.13, RRR: 4.50)

  • AA Noffke31 (66b)

  • B Laughlin9-0-33-2

I think Philipson expected that catch to come a bit quicker, wasn't quite timed cleanly which may have put him off

Laughlin to Noffke, no run, that has flown off the deck! Just back of a length outside off, almost catches the edge as he tries to cut
