OUT! He is just short! The dive does not save him. A full ball is hit towards mid off by Boult. Sodhi wants strike so he rushes off. Boult sends him back. Sodhi turns and looks to get back in with a dive but Jordan hits bull's eye at the bowler's end. An appeal and the umpire takes it upstairs. Replays show that Sodhi is short.

12.6Parkinson to Sodhi

1LB
NOT OUT! It is pitching outside leg! The review was more in hope we feel. England too lose their review in the same over. Parkinson tosses it up outside leg, it turns and hits the pad of Sodhi as he tries to flick. An appeal as the batters take a leg bye towards short fine leg. The umpire shakes his head. Billings feels it is close and wants the review to be taken. Morgan does so. Replays roll in and they show the on-field call is correct again. An action-packed last over by Parkinson. 13 runs and a wicket. End of an excellent spell from him. 4-0-47-4, his figures.

12.5Parkinson to Southee

W
OUT! Three reds and Southee needs to continue his walk back. He actually is already off the field even before he was given out by the third umpire. 4-fer for Parkinson and he has one ball to get a fifer. He bowls a flighted ball on middle, Southee shuffles across and looks to play the slog sweep but misses to get hit on the pads. An appeal and up goes the finger. Southee reviews. Replays roll in and it shows that the on-field call is the right one. New Zealand lose a review. Sotuhee's cameo comes to an end.

12.4Parkinson to Southee

0
Beautifully bowled! Slows it up even more and lands it outside off, Southee looks to play against the turn but misses.

12.3Parkinson to Southee

4
JUST SHORT AND FOUR! This is frustrating for Parkinson. A dropped catch in the last over and now this one falls short. Shorter and on middle, Southee hits it uppishly towards long on who runs in, dives forward to take that catch but the ball lands short, goes past him and goes for a boundary.

12.2Parkinson to Southee

2
Slower through the air on the pads, Southee looks to sweep but it goes off the inner half through square leg for two.
