Sammy to Kohli, OUT, Kohli goes, and it is a moment for the cameramen. Slower ball from Sammy, full and enticing the early drive.

Not much calling, as Samuels and Hyatt converged. Almost a collision, but Hyatt holds the ball while Samuels holds Hyatt. And then they argue over who should have taken it!
