18.3Milenko to Sams

W
OUT! CAUGHT! Matthew Wade takes the catch and Sams has thrown his wicket away. Back of a length ball on middle, Sams looks to pull but gets a top edge on it. It goes high in the air and Wade from mid-wicket runs in, settles himself under it and completes the catch. Doesn't look like it will make much of a difference to the result of the game.

17.2Rose to Morris

W
OUT! CAUGHT! Morris can't believe it! Is there a twist in this game? Rose tosses this one up on middle and gives a bit of air on that. Morris without moving his feet tries to chip it towards long on but times a little too well and it goes straight in the hands of Qais Ahmed at long on. Hurricanes hanging on out there. 17 required from 16 balls now.

W
OUT! Bowled! This is another big moment in this game. The attempted googly from Qais. It is pitched on off and spins in just a tad. Gilkes misreads it and expects it to be a leg spinner.
