    3.3 goes for a cut and the bowler has the last laugh. It was a short ball and bounced quite enough to leave the batsman a tad uncomfortable. He has to jump late to adjust to the extra bounce and ends up not getting it off the middle. Goes off the splice uppishly towards third man where Steketee settles under it 21/1
    10.3 comes down the track to meet the pitch of this ball. But he does not middle the loft and skies it to long-on where Buchanan settles under it and snaffles it reverse-cupped. Does well as he had to run quite some way to his left. And it was not to his natural side 79/3
    6.5 tries to flick this length ball away to the leg side and ends up inside-edging it to the pads before the ball lobs in the air. The wicketkeeper grabs the catch and they appeal for a bat-pad which is given by the umpire 41/2
    18.2 slower ball again, and another great caught-and-bowled. Marsh tries to slog it and gets the timing horribly wrong. Skies it straight up in the air and lost his balance as he played the shot. His head foes up straight away as he knows he has not timed it well. Steketee settles under it and it takes what seems like all of eternity before landing but he takes it with remarkable composure 155/6
    14.2 full and wide, sliced straight into the hands of backward point. Goes hard as he tries to drill a square drive and ends up playing uppishly 113/4
    17.3 catch, what a catch! Buchanan runs a long way across and takes a delightful catch. That was not easy at all. Whiteman goes down looking fo a slog sweep and top-edges it to the midwicket region. There is a fielder only in the deep and Buchanan runs across, latches on to it and tumbles as he completes the catch 146/5
