3.3 to AP Devcich, LBW! Rashid does the trick! He tried to reverse sweep to a full ball, beaten for pace and length, hit his front pad on the half-volley, and looked to be infront of leg stump and going straight on! The umpire's finger went up!. 37/1
3.4 to CJ Ferguson, chipped to midwicket! Two in two! Shorter wrong un, he went back and tried to work it square, he got a leading edge and it just popped up straight to O'Connor at midwicket! Ferguson can't believe it!. 37/2
