In the air... dropped! Don't thing though this would cost Adelaide a lot. A short ball on middle, Bird hits it uppishly down to long on. The filder there comes running in, he dives, gets two hands to it but can't hang on. The batsmen take two.

12.6Laughlin to Gotch

W
OUT! TIMBER! Half the side back in the hut and a timely wicket! This partnership was starting to look dangerous. A yorker tailing back in at 142 kph. Too quick for Gotch as he plays all around it, misses to see his stumps get shattered. The chase now looks a uphill task, 80 needed from 42 balls.
