6.3

Al-Amin Hossain to Smith, SIX, Whoaa! This is as flat as you can imagine! It's only marginally short and it's hit straight to the deep square leg fielder. The ball didn't really go more than four meters above the ground, but never really came down..

9.2

Sohag Gazi to Smith, FOUR, but now the deep midwicket boundary is peppered! It was a flatter, shorter delivery on off, the batsman waits for an extra second before thrashing it through midwicket

Sohag Gazi to Smith, FOUR, too full now, make it a hat-trick for smith.. he crunches this one down the ground.. all along the turf .. Too much power

9.4
