46.2

Panesar to Vaas, no run, looped up, nervily defended

46.3

Panesar to Vaas, no run, big shout as he ball zips off the toe ... a woody sound but no bat involved

46.4

Panesar to Vaas, FOUR, a much more confident push through the off side, well timed to get off the mark

46.5

Panesar to Vaas, no run, a big stride, allows the ball to hit him on the pad

Sri Lanka 152/6   WPUJC Vaas 4* (4b 1x4)
47.3

Sidebottom to Vaas, no run, defended into the covers

47.4

Sidebottom to Vaas, no run, patted to mid-on

47.5

Sidebottom to Vaas, no run, mistimed drive, he connects more with the ground than the ball and so gets no power into the shot

47.6

Sidebottom to Vaas, no run, pushed into the off side

Sri Lanka 157/6   WPUJC Vaas 4* (8b 1x4)
48.2

Panesar to Vaas, no run, floated up on the full, Vaas right over the ball to block

48.3

Panesar to Vaas, no run, back, all a bit rushed but he keeps it out

48.4

Panesar to Vaas, FOUR, too full, swept through midwicket from off stump

48.5

Panesar to Vaas, 2 runs, a firm lunge forward, a thick edge onto the pad and the ball squirts wide of slip

48.6

Panesar to Vaas, no run, Vaas right forward, almost thrusting, and the power of the lunge means that when he connects the ball will fly off the bat ... as it does here, up to mid-off

Sri Lanka 164/6   WPUJC Vaas 10* (13b 2x4)
50.1

Panesar to Vaas, no run, Vaas flicks off the front foot through midwicket

50.2

Panesar to Vaas, 1 run, uber wristy flick behind square on the leg side

50.6

Panesar to Vaas, no run, Vaas completely bamboozled by one that rips off a length, through him and through Prior as well and the man saving the one behind on the leg side fields

Sri Lanka 178/6   WPUJC Vaas 11* (16b 2x4)
51.2

Anderson to Vaas, no run, outside off stump, through to Prior on the half volley

51.3

Anderson to Vaas, no run, a loose drive, his bottom hand comes off the bat as he plays the shot and the ball goes to point on the bounce

51.4

Anderson to Vaas, 1 run, worked round the corner to long leg

Sri Lanka 180/6   WPUJC Vaas 12* (19b 2x4)
52.1

Panesar to Vaas, no run, Vaas back, shapes to cut and misses ...lots of hands in the air

52.2

Panesar to Vaas, no run, swished to midwicket

52.3

Panesar to Vaas, OUT, he again steps back to attempt a cut, the ball rips out of the rough and clips the top of his off stump. It turned appreciably but he had been given a warning two balls earlier and he ignored it

WPUJC Vaas b Panesar 12 (25m 22b 2x4 0x6) SR: 54.54

Sri Lanka 180/7   WPUJC Vaas 12 (22b 2x4)
