41.3Behrendorff to Woakes

W
OUT! Another excellent catch! Excellent team work I should say between Maxwell and Finch! Jason Behrendorff gets his fourth. The slower one on middle, Woakes shuffles across and looks to clear the mid-wicket fence. It is the longer part of the ground. Maxwell in the deep runs to his right, keeps one eye on the ropes and takes it. He then realizes that the momentum is taking him over the ropes so he lobs it to Finch who runs to his right from long on. Woakes, England's last hope is dismissed.
