68.3

Herath to Asad Shafiq, no run, carrom ball, turning in as he looks to cut. Manages the cut well, but turns down another single

68.4

Herath to Asad Shafiq, OUT, Herath strikes. This one has turned and bounced out of nowhere. On a length, in front of off, then kicking away. Beats the bat by a long way but seems to have gloved it. The top glove. But was it off the handle? I am yet to be convinced he gloved it. No bat for sure. Shafiq didn't walk. Steve Davis, though, didn't hesitate either. Watching replays it seems he did glove it
