5.4 to MJ Lumb, alters the length and it worked, bowls a slower bouncer around off, Lumb tries to pull but didn't read it as he was early onto it and ends up with a sitter towards the square leg where the man runs to his left to catch it.. 54/2

Nathan Hauritz403528.7551200

13.4 to MH Wessels, once again Wessels steps out as Hauritz pushes that full and wide outside off, reaches for it and ends up with a top edge which lob towards the long-off where Sandhu places underneath it and pouches it.. 129/4
