6.3

Langford-Smith to Marshall, no run

6.4

Langford-Smith to Marshall, FOUR, Both are looking pretty good out there. Fulton and Marshall. This time its Marshall who leans forward and drives between extra cover and mid-off. Again too full in length. Not much movement and it begs to be driven. He has to shorten the length slightly

6.5

Langford-Smith to Marshall, no run, better. Short of driveable length, outside off and left alone

6.6

Langford-Smith to Marshall, no run, Spot on again. Back of length, lands outside off stump, goes on straight, the bat comes down in an angle and the ball threads the bat and pad gap and flies past the off stump.

10.1

Langford-Smith to Marshall, no run, length-delivery outside off stump, Marshall eases it to cover.

10.2

Langford-Smith to Marshall, no run, beaten on the drive. It was full and outside off and Marshall was sucked into a loose drive. The bat went inside the line.

Langford-Smith to Marshall, 2 runs, full and well outside off stump, Marshall chased after it and slashed it over point.

10.4

Langford-Smith to Marshall, no run, homing in on the middle and off stump line, driven to short cover. The left leg was dangerously kept across, a little bit more and he could have been a lbw victim.

10.5

Langford-Smith to Marshall, no run, on the off stump line, square-driven to point.

10.6

Langford-Smith to Marshall, OUT, Morgan takes a beauty. At cover. It was full and outside off, Marshall tries to drive it over cover, mistimes and the ball bobs over Morgan. He backpedals, stretches his hands above his hand and holds on to it. The bowler is ecstatic. He does a little jig.

HJH Marshall c Morgan b Langford-Smith 16 (21m 21b 2x4 0x6) SR: 76.19

New Zealand 59/2   HJH Marshall 16 (21b 2x4)
