9b to JM Clarke, And it'll be his only one. Caught at cover point. There was width and it was on a back of length. Clarke had room and tried to slap it as hard as he could, but it went low to the left of Turner. Well taken. 25/1
32b to LWP Wells, Launched high but he can't clear wide long-on. Overton takes it and Wells has to go for 57 off 23. The slower ball was full and Wells got it off the bottom of the bat. Good catch from the man, running across. 83/2
38b to GD Phillips, Taken at deep cover point. Phillips' cameo is done. Wide on a length, Phillips tries to spank it over cover but gets it in the air and deep point ran across and took a good catch. 91/3

1b to PD Salt, Get hootin' and howlerin' cos Shaheen's blown Salt's pads off, and it's given lbw. Salt reviews. He tried to drive the full ball down the ground and got beaten on the inside edge. It pitched around the edge of the leg-stump line and straightened to hit the middle of middle.. 0/1
2b to LJ Evans, Forget fire, Shaheen's volcanoing! The searing inswinging yorker beats Evans' flick. He can't manage to hold his balance. Fell over and got hit in line. Shaheen's off on a big celebration. 0/2
32b to MDE Holden, Great tumbling catch from Phillips. What does he have for food?! He ran swiftly to the left and went down to his left. Managed to hold onto it. Willey goes wider outside off to deny Holden from hitting towards midwicket. He tried to carve it away but could only slice it. 63/3
34b to PI Walter, Too wide for Walter to reach and he's caught behind! Slower one is short and outside the off-side tramline. Walter went after it with his upper body leaning across, he tried to cut it hard and square. Edged it to the keeper. 69/4
