4.4 to JC Buttler, bowled him! Undone by a brilliant wrong un! He backed away trying to give room to slap it over the off side, he didn't read the googly, it pitched and spun through the gate and hit off stump. Well bowled. 39/1
12.4 to JE Root, top edge straight up caught by the keeper! He attempted a slog sweep, got a top edge that flew straight up in the air. Dunk moves only a couple of steps to his right and takes the catch. It was the wrong un that bounced a touch more and caught the top edge. Well bowled again. 99/4
19.3 to DR Sams, caught behind! Wide half volley, he tries to slash over point, gets a thick edge and it's an easy catch for Dunk behind the stumps. 176/5
7.2 to SR Watson, caught at long on! Sandeep celebrates! He tossed this up, Watson went to launch over long on, he got it off the bottom of the bat and carried to Larkin on the rope who jumped up and took the catch! Larkin was a little way in and unsure of the rope but held the catch well. 57/2
7.6 to CJ Ferguson, caught and bowled! Amazing start from Sandeep Lamichhane. This was a leg break that gripped a touch, he tried to knock it against the turn into the leg side, got a leading edge that pooped back to the bowler. He gleefully accepted the catch!. 59/3

1.5 to BR Dunk, skied straight up and caught by the keeper! Back of a length, he tried to launch a pull shot, got a high top edge that flew over the keeper's head, Buttler had to run back and judge the swirling ball and he took it well. Very nicely done. 13/1
2.1 to TJ Dean, LBW! Plumb! He stepped across outside off, it was full and straight and he missed it trying to whip to leg. He was hit flush in front of off stump. Not a tough decision.. 14/2
2.6 to GJ Maxwell, caught at deep midwicket! That is a big scalp! Good length into leg stump, he clips this really well in the air and it carries all the way to the man at deep midwicket who runs in off the rope and takes comfortably.. 20/3
6.2 to EP Gulbis, bowled him! He went down on one knee to try and lap sweep, Sams spotted it and went full and straight with a yorker and bowled him around the legs! Hit the base of middle. Well bowled. 55/6
3.3 to MP Stoinis, caught at long off! Sangha takes a beauty! This was powerfully struck down to straight long off, Sangha runs the tightrope, takes the catch at full stride and keeps his feet inside the rope! Brilliantly done. He's having a superb night. 22/4
4.5 to DJ Bravo, caught at deep backward square! Another good short ball, he tried to pull over square leg, it got a little high on him, he got a big top edge that carried all the way to the rope and Rainbird steadied right on the rope and took a good catch. 33/5
