5.1 too much width on off stump and he threw his bat at this one, top edge flies straight to Sunny at third man. He mistimed it altogether and the big Caribbean has struck in his very first delivery 48/1
    7.2 that looked out..! It was too full to play the sweep, missed his shot and hits his boot. Loud cry for leg-before and umpire nods his head.. Absolutely plumb in front. 59/2
    8.3 another nail on the coffin..! Saw him coming and Nabi beats him flight, Shehzad tries to clear long-on, was never to the pitch of the delivery and skies one to long-on. Perera out there jogs in and pouches it with ease. Are Victorians throwing it away? 61/3
    9 lovely..! Tossed up on off, lunges forward and edges it to slip. Simmons dives to his left and grabs a blinder. Top class bowling and world class catching 63/4
    18 fuller on off stump, Malik opens up a bit and carves it to cover, Not much power behind that shot and Sunny at cover region back pedals a few yards and takes an easy catch. What an over..! A wicket maiden. 112/8
    12.4 tossed up on off stump and looks to slog it over deep mid-wicket, missed his shot and the ball rattles the middle pole. He should got off strike instead of slogging 85/5
    16 You live by the sword and die by the sword. It was another tempter from Shakib, Bowled it slow, allowed the ball to spin. Russell misread the script totally and goes for another hoick, mistimed it and skied one to long-on. Perera runs in and accepts it gleefully. 102/6
    16.3 its falling apart..! Down the track, down on his knees and swats one straight to Nabi at long-on. 110/7
    19.1 in the block-hole and it rattles the off stump. Ghosh had no answer. Full and straight and the batsman was late in bringing the bat down in time 130/9
    not out
    19.5 slower ball and he has dragged it on, bowled'em and its all over 132/10
