2.1 to JJ Peirson, Bird finally got rewarded for bowling shortish, that's short and outside off. He stays on the crease and tries to slap it back past the bowler, ends up hitting flat into the hands of Bird who does well to grab it in the follow through. 14/1

19.2 to BCJ Cutting, full and pushes wide outside off, slices that high towards the sweeper cover where Wright runs forward and plucks it without any trouble.. 162/7
7.3 to S Milenko, picks Wright at the sweeper, comes down the track and driven uppishly by backing away to the leg. It did came out of the mid of the blade but not enough distance as he picks the longer boundary where Wright runs and holds it. 58/3
15.4 to NJ Reardon, change of pace done the trick, that's on a length down leg, he gets down and tries to scoop it over the man at short fine leg, didn't got the elevation and holes out to Bird.. 121/5

0.6 to GJ Maxwell, Oh my sweet Lord!
