Higher from Root as the primary ball spits previous Mitchell’s out of doors edge into Billings’ gloves.

“Oh that’s so shut,” groans Sam Billings from at the back of the stumps as Mitchell makes an attempt to brush off his entrance pad and it deflects off his glove down the leg facet. Just about hitting the pad and if it did, that used to be most likely plumb lbw.

Singles off every of the primary 3 balls and that’s it for the over
