9.3

Lakmal to Hughes, no run, slower offcutter, Hughes is caught lunging, but he keeps the defensive shot down

9.4

Lakmal to Hughes, OUT, What a pitch! What a beauty this Test could be. Takes off, explodes, from short of a length. It's close to off, and Hughes is committed to playing at it. The extra bounce means he has to fend at it, and it takes the shoulder of the bat before lobbing to slip. He didn't even run his fingers across this one. Let me remind you this is just the 10th over. Vicious bounce there from a length
