    0.5 caught at slip! Great catch by Dunk. Back of a length wide of off, he went to cut off the back foot but he played with an angled bat, a touch of extra bounce and nip catches the edge, it flies high to Dunk's left at slip, he reaches up with two hands and plucks it 2/1
    4.1 top edge caught by the keeper! A slower ball on leg, he tries to whip this in the air over the leg side, he gets a leading edge that flies very high towards gully, Gotch runs to his left, camps under it and takes the catch! 21/2
    12.4 caught at long off! Miscues this one! A slower ball, 126kph, he tries to go over long off again, but mistimes this, slicing it to Bird in the deep running in off the rope and he takes the catch! 95/3
    16.5 caught at backwards square! Slower ball on leg stump, he clips this away off his pads in the air but straight to Gulbis on the circle behind square! Simple catch 134/5
    16.3 bowled him! This might have been a full toss above waist high! Back of the hand slower ball, very high, he tried a baseball type swing, got a little edge but it landed on top of the off stump! Rashid looks around to the square leg umpire but he says it was a legal delivery! That was borderline above waist high. Probably unfortunate for Rashid 133/4

    7.3 bowled him! 140kph, good length and it crashes into the top of off! He tried to launch him again over forward square, it just zipped through off the surface under the bat and into off stump! 57/3
    5.2 caught at deep forward square! Short ball outside off, chest high, Dunk climbs into a pull shot, he hammers this flat and hard to deep forward square, Neser stationed at deep midwicket, moves well to his left and takes an excellent catch! 50/1
    6.2 caught at deep midwicket! He tries to slog sweep a leg break, there's a little extra bounce, he gets a top edge that flies out to deep midwicket, Wells runs in 20m off the rope and takes the catch easily 52/2
    8.6 caught at deep midwicket! This was a wrong on middle, he tries to slog sweep over forward square, miscues it off a thick leading edge and it flies to deep midwicket, Weatherald runs to his right and takes a good catch 5m in from the rope 65/4
    12.6 Bowled him! Cracking inswinging yorker! This was 142kph, full and straight with a hint of late tail in, beaten for pace an swerve and it crashes into the base of middle and leg stump! 99/5
    16.3 caught at long on! A leg break on off, Bravo tries to slog sweep over midwicket, he miscues, gets a thick top edge that flies down to long on and Neser stands under it 20m off the rope and takes the comfortable catch 117/8
    13.5 Plumb LBW! 140kph, good length, it tails back in late from outside off, Merlo caught on the crease, drives down the wrong line, gets hit on the knee roll in front of middle! Not a tough decision that one 105/6
    15.1 Bowled him! Slower ball yorker! Did him all ends up! It was the off cutter slower ball, Plunkett thought it was an on speed full toss, it dipped under the groping bat, and crashed into the base of off stump! Great skill 111/7

    18.4 Bowled him! Another yorker does the job. He backed away outside leg to open up the off side, Neser fired it full and straight and it was too good, crashing into the base of middle stump! 134/9
