8.1

8.2

Kumar to Styris, no run, just outside off, moving away again, squeezed out to backward point

8.3

Kumar to Styris, no run, around the off stump line, pushed back down the track

8.4

Kumar to Styris, no run, Shout for lbw PK floated this ball in, the batsman had pushed that front leg too far across and couldn't get the bat around in time. He was hit in front of middle stump and Hawk eye shows it would have clipped the outside half of the leg stump,

8.5

Kumar to Styris, no run, full and moving away, driven to the off side of the pitch and PK deflects it to mid-off

8.6

9.3

Mithun to Styris, 2 runs, fullish, on the middle, moving in and Styris works it between short midwicket and square-leg fielders

9.4

Mithun to Styris, no run, it lands well outside off and cuts back in sharply. Styris was looking to defend and was struck high on the pad outside the line of off stump

9.5

Mithun to Styris, no run, Shout for a catch behind decision. It was another incutter from outside off and again, Styris pushed outside the line of the delivery. It's cutting in more than he thinks it would. The ball hit the pad. I don't think there was any bat on it. The initial replays don't show any. Further replays on that shout for a catch throw more doubts! It looks as if there might have been an inside edge on to the pad. But no snicko (not yet at least) and no hot spot. Can't really say.

9.6

Mithun to Styris, no run, Another one that cuts back in from outside off and again Styris is in trouble. This time he is hit high on the pad.

New Zealand 34/3   SB Styris 3* (13b)
11.1

Mithun to Styris, 4 leg byes, Like in his first over, he pushes the first ball to the pads and Styris plays the leg glance to perfection. Oh may be not! Leg byes apparently! Where is the eye doctor!

11.2

Mithun to Styris, no run, gets behind the line to push this one away

11.3

Mithun to Styris, no run, another one that tilts towards the pads, Styris falls over a touch as he tries to flick it away and is hit on the pad.

11.4

Mithun to Styris, 1 run, Loud shout for lbw but turned down. It was another nip-backer, that cut in from outside off and Styris is in more trouble. He was hit in front of the middle stump but was saved by the height. It would have gone over the middle stump.
