0.2 cleaned him up ! right through bat and pad and the stump lays flat on the ground, great start for the Dutch ! 0/1
    4.3 given ! just a little fuller than good length, ideal for an lbw shout, Ruvindu played the wrong line, the ball hit the back pad, it looked plumb 5/3
    0.4 edged and a sharp catch by the keeper, that was the first ball, Nitish offered a shot at and he gets edge dying in front of the slips, Keepers dives and takes it clean 2/2
    6.2 yep gone ! down the leg side, Bagai went back and tried to glance it, he ends up gloving it to the keeper 10/6
    5 gone ! that was down the leg side, feathers it to the keeper, 4 down now ! 5/4
    5.4 cleaned him up ! that was not short enough to go back, Bukhari darts it back in of the wicket, ball runs through backfoot prod, pegs back the off stump. Another one bites the dust 7/5
    24.4 all over, went for the slog sweep, misses it and the middle stump is pegged back 67/10
    18.1 edged, taken low in the slips ! regulation left armer from around the wicket, pitched on middle and spun away, Junaid prods forward and niks it to the first slip 44/7
    18.3 gone, he had a bit stride foward, but the ball went on with the arm and struck him in line, that was crashing leg stump 46/8
    20.1 gone ! similar to Kamyuka dismissal, stride forward, but the armer struck in line 54/9
