22.2

24.1

Kerrigan to Watson, no run, lands this on a good length, Watson defends to the off side

Kerrigan to Watson, FOUR, another short one, another pull...this is a tough welcome for Kerrigan as he gets pulled through midwicket with a hint of disdain

24.6

Kerrigan to Watson, FOUR, an over of carnage, Kerrigan just can't find his length at all, it's awfully short again and Watson has so much time...pulled through straight midwicket, not far from a six
