31.6

Samuels to Buttler, no run, plays a late cut, possibly cramped for room, Ramdin celebrates immediately, throwing the ball into the air... Samuels was pretty non-committal and Erasmus looks totally uninterested before raising his finger almost as an afterthought. Buttler, is flabbergasted and calls for the review. This is going to be difficult, the ball went past the bat very close to the keeper, the angle prevents a clear view of it... There's no Hot Spot, so they're going on audio and visuals, which seem inconclusive. However, the third umpire, Rod Tucker, decides that Buttler didn't hit it, so Erasmus has his decision overturned

England 160/4   MN Samuels 5-0-29-0
