David Payne1591220.802000
4b to WCF Smeed, skied... taken! 101 not out on Wednesday night, 0 on Sunday evening. A bit of extra bounce from a good length, Smeed looked to plonk one into the River Taff but it hit the splice, and Pretorius settled underneath it. 0/1
74b to MAH Hammond, looks to go again, shuffling across, and is struck on the boot. Payne convinces Cobb to review. Might have been outside the line. Struck on the back foot in front of off stump by the yorker. This must be out if there's no bat involved. Ultra-Edge confirms there's no bat, impact is in line, and it's crashing into the base of middle-and-off!. 87/5
Dwaine Pretorius1552601.733120
Jake Ball2062911.450110
93b to TG Helm, slower ball, swung high into the air. Cobb runs around to his right from mid-off and settles underneath it, as Helm's cameo comes to an end. 114/7
George Scrimshaw20122221.102110
22b to MM Ali, strangled down the leg side! On a length, just a hint of inswing, and Moeen was looking to flick off his pads. Just a hint of bat, Clarke made a smart, tumbling catch diving low to his right, and Scrimshaw gets a huge wicket!. 22/2
25b to LS Livingstone, bowled scooping, Scrimshaw gets Birmingham's Big Two in the same set! Fuller length, Livingstone saw fine leg up inside the ring and shuffled across looking to flick it over his head. But Scrimshaw was too quick, and ripped out his off stump!. 27/3
Josh Cobb1561511.000100
33b to CG Benjamin, dragged on, Fire on fire! Benjamin looks to slog-sweep across the line and gets a big bottom edge, chopping onto the base of his own stumps via his back leg. Cobb celebrates and the Welshies are on top. 35/4
Adam Zampa1532511.660201
78b to MS Wade, picks out Ball on the rope! Another tossed-up googly, full length, sliced down long-off's throat. Wade felt he had to take Zampa down, but goes six-and-out. 94/6

Kane Richardson20111520.751000
2b to JM Clarke, What a catch! It's a tad short, well outside off and Clarke swings at it, with Smeed plucking it out of the air at point with a diving effort.. 0/1
70b to T Banton, Done him! Richardson strikes with a beauty of a yorker, with Banton having no answer to the pace and accuracy of the delivery as his stumps are uprooted.. 85/4
Tom Helm2073521.753210
22b to SR Hain, Chopped on! Slower, outside off and Hain fails to pick it up - chopping it back onto his stumps after slight hesitation.. 28/2
96b to JJ Cobb, It's out! Slow, back of a length, and he skies it straight to the fielder at long off. Miller crosses over, but it's irrelevant as the new batter has to face the ball.. 120/5
Henry Brookes1552301.533000
Benny Howell2081210.600000
42b to BM Duckett, Got him! Castled! Looked slower out of his hands and Duckett swings wildly as the ball squeezes through and clips the off stump. 53/3
