2.3 George Bailey has taken a sensational catch at extra cover! Does he know what he's done? That deserves more celebration than his signature grin. It's a back of a length ball climbing up at PAtterson, who closes the face too early and gets a leading edge. Bailey skips two steps in front and to his right at extra cover, then realises he's overdone the movement. Adjusts to go backwards at this point, one-handed to his right, and he hangs on 24/1
    13.2 well bowled. Changes his trajectory and gets Buttler, who was backing away to try and open up the off side. It was lobbed up nicely, dipping into the crease at a middle stump line and he made too much room in the end. Tried to chop it over extra cover and missed 119/2
    15.3 poor running and that's the end of Watson. Short ball in the hips. It's a short-arm pull towards deep square who is quick on the ball and has already reached it when Watson decideds to go for the second. It isn't his call at that angle but Ferguson hadn't run the first one hard either. Sends him back, but his turn is slow. And he doesn't have the momentum to put in a dive 138/3
    not out
    16.4 well that's an ugly way to go. Full toss at off stump that was prime for a big slog. He has premeditated the reverse sweep and gets in a poor position. Struck right in front of off stump, on the full, on his back leg. ABout as dead as it gets. Unless there was an inside edge on that 141/4
    19.6 nasty bouncer up at his throat. He can't get the pull away. It's off the glove and rolling back at the bowler. Who picks up as he realises they're trying to steal a run. Holds his nerve, runs backward and under-arms it to break the stumps 166/5

    10.5 finds long-on with the slog sweep. Length ball outside off, reaches out for it and gets well under it. Ends up a slice, taken quite a way inside the boundary 62/6
    2.2 bowled him! That's a nice sight if you're bowler-inclined. Length ball with a hint of shape inside. Not too quick, it's 134kph, but it's skiddy. Short exposes middle and off as he swings across the line. Gets an inside edge and the stumps light up 23/1
    4.2 good catch running backwards from Buttler. McDermott steps out and looks to whip one over midwicket on the up. This length ball rises on him as he does so and it's a top-edge that's in the awkward area between first slip and third man. Buttler makes it clear he's going for it, gets third man to abort his attempt. Then settles under it and follows nicely with his gloves as it swerves to his right 35/2
    7.3 chips it to long-off in surprisingly casual style. He was looking to go wide, but this one dipped on him rapidly outside off and his jab was met with a climbing ball. A few yards to long-off's left and it's a simple catch for a big wicket 52/3
    8.5 chipped back to the bowler and it's another soft dismissal. Things looking dull as the required rate approaches 10. Another example of dip doing the batsman in. It grips too and stops on Wade as he looks to push with hard hands through the covers against this length ball. Not to the pitch of it and it's a harmless bunt back to Nair 56/4
    9.4 they're losing it completely against the spinners. Midwicket is in, and the promoted Boyce plays a half-hearted sweep in his attempt to clear him. That wouldn't have gone too far in this wind if he had really swung at it, so he stands nearly no chance after this. It's slow through the air and on middle stump, he ends up getting it off the toe-end to midwicket 57/5
    14.1 misses the full one and loses leg stump. That should be the end of any outside chance they had. It's speared in from around and he gets cramped on the attempted slog 75/7
    17.3 he gets all of this but he can't clear the boundary. Floated up slow outside off. Backs away and swings for the long boundary. Can't beat long-off 102/8
    not out
    18.2 nicely done. Outfoxes the No. 10 batsman completely with a loopy slower ball that appear to be a beamer, but ends up sneaking through from under the bat because it's a yorker 108/9
    19.3 back of a length, in at his body. It takes a deflection off his pad and crashes into the stumps as he tries to carve one through the off side 109/10
