14.5

JA Morkel to McMillan, (no ball) SIX, Disappears over long-on boundary. Full in length, on the off and middle, McMillan opens his stance and smokes it over the boundary. That was a big hit. And here comes the free hit. What would he do?

14.6

JA Morkel to McMillan, SIX, full-pitched, on the stumps, the left foot goes outside legstump and the bat swings through the line cleanly and the ball sails over the long-on boundary. The fun has begun.

19.3

van der Wath to McMillan, SIX, Ah! he decides to top edge over the 'keeper's head for six. It was a slower ball, short in length and McMillan was through with his pull shot early but gets away with a six.

New Zealand 150/8   CD McMillan 47* (24b 2x4 4x6)   JJ van der Wath 3.3-0-28-2
