Edgar Schiferli1024324.30405010
34.2 to A Flower, short again, cut to backward point again, but this time in the air and Esmeijer takes a good catch. 165/4

5.6 to CB Wishart, lovely ball outside off, slices it thin, great take by Smits behind the sticks standing up. 24/1

29.3 to GJ Whittall, short, hooks it high into midwicket, Zuiderent runs in from the deep and takes a magnificent diving catch inches off the ground at full stretch, amazing fielding that. 135/3
