0.1

Vinay Kumar to Sibanda, no run, gentle outswinger starts wide outside off and is left alone

0.2

Vinay Kumar to Sibanda, no run, early ripper from Vinay, that has angled into middle, good length, and swerved away to almost shave off stump, squaring up Sibanda, unplayable

0.3

Vinay Kumar to Sibanda, OUT, wow, this is incalculably daft from Sibanda, he's been so riled up by that jaffa previous ball that he's charged out and had a blind heave, and cover's settled under the total mishit
