Picked up over long-on! Takes this ball from a length outside off, on the up and hits through the line. He connects so cleanly with this.

Full, quick and straight. Gurbaz goes for the drive and gets a thick inside edge down to fine leg.

Length and outside off, cut off the front foot but straight to backward point.

Short, wide and it’s a thick edge over slip! Just hangs his bat there.

Misfield at point! This is short and wide and cut hard and low, and it goes straight through to hands of the man point.

Outside edge, straight to slip! But was that a bounce ball? This was very full, almost a full toss, and it looks to take the edge. Yes, it’s a bump ball. Gurbaz gets an under edge on this very full delivery, that bounces on the way to slip.

back of a length just outside off. Defended on to the offside.

Bounces up of a length outside off, Avishka hangs the bat and tries to withdraw late. Takes a under edge wide of the slip cordon down to third man.
