6.4

Copeland to Paranavitana, no run, loud shout for lbw as Paranavitana gets hit on the pad while trying to defend on the front foot. Aleem Dar says not out and Clarke decides to review after thinking about it for a while. It was a good length ball that pitched in line and angled back into the left-hander instead of seaming away. That looks dead plumb. But replays indicate it's an umpire's call for some reason. The replays indicate that would have hit off stump. Perhaps the majority of the ball was not hitting the centre of the stump or something, but that looked so out. He's been saved by the smallest of fractions.
