Innings Highlights

Over No.Event TypeEventTeam Score
19.5FOURBalaji to S Smith, FOUR, Balaji misses the yorker and Smith cashes in, full toss outside off, he gets underneath it and lofts it on the bounce to the deep extra cover fence191/5
18.2SIXJohnson to Faulkner, SIX, stand and deliver stuff from Faulkner, length delivery outside off, he clears his front leg and thumps it over the long off fence. That was hit on the up and he knew that was a six as soon as he hit it181/5
17.5FOURBalaji to S Smith, FOUR, some good innovation from Smith, low full toss on the stumps, he walks across his stumps and clips it wide of short fine leg for the third boundary of the over173/5
17.3FOURBalaji to S Smith, FOUR, good sensible batting from Smith, yorker outside off, he gets down and opens the face of the bat to get it past short third man. Poor bowling and field placement by Balaji169/5
17.2FOURBalaji to S Smith, FOUR, low full toss just outside off, Smith says thank you and drills the drive straight back past the bowler for a boundary, that was hit with some power as he beat the long off fielder comfortably165/5
16.5OUTAwana to Samson, out Bowled!! Awana has the last laugh and ends a superb innings. This was a well directed yorker on the stumps, Samson backs away and tries to drive, he fails and the ball hits the base of middle stump. It needed a good delivery like that to get rid of Samson today. Samson b Awana 52(34) [4s-3 6s-4]159/5
