49.1

Hilfenhaus to Swann, no run, ah, now that's a good short one, well directed over off stump and it's close to Swann's gloves as he drops his hands. Short balls don't have to start very short here, if you know what I mean

Hilfenhaus to Swann, no run, short of a length, shaping away past Swann's bat
