14.2

Langeveldt to Tamim Iqbal, FOUR, Wow. Short and outside off stump, Tamim flat-bats it, ala Gilchrist, over extra cover. A lady in the crowd certainly loved it. She cradles a baby doll. Like how Bebeto and Romario used to do in the football World Cup.

16.4

Langeveldt to Habibul Bashar, no run, bumper, Bashar shapes to pull and it bounces over the blade. This is getting interesting. Bashar is losing his patience, he has been out of form. Let's see how he goes about his task. Will he try to hit his way out?
