Tait to Taylor, OUT, the bowling change works, Taylor's in the mood to score runs, went after a delivery that wasn't too wide for the cut, nor too short, got a thick edge straight to Manou who took it with ease, South Australia have struck back to upset the counterattack, perhaps a touch too quick for Taylor there
