16.2

Langford-Smith to Styris, no run, another over-pitched stuff. driven to cover

16.3

Langford-Smith to Styris, OUT, Styris falls. Done in by the change of pace. Scrambled seam and it floated outside off stump. Styris is bit early into his drive and nicks it behind. Smith does his jig again. Rolls his fist over each other and takes them behind and does a chicken act. At least, that's what it appears to me. Got to ask him in the PC.
