Shocking. Thought I was gone when the last over started, and almost won it. Pietersen had 2 balls to make 3 and stuffed it up.
End of Over 19: 149-4, runrate=7.84, reqrunrate=17.00 (165-1)
Bell* 29 (25 balls)
Slaytor 85 (55 balls)
Last Wicket: Graves c. Britton b. Davenport 15 (FOW: 77/4)
19.1 nb6 Sykes to Bell
no ball, Big six clubbed into the crowd, no technique just brute strength there.
19.1 1 Sykes to Bell
Short of a good length and outside the off stump, punched through cover point for a single.
19.2 2 Sykes to Slaytor
Opened the face of the bat, guided to third man, good running between the wickets.
19.3 W Sykes to Slaytor
Sykes shouts like a kid on Christmas morning, and the umpire's given him out LBW!
19.4 4 Sykes to Pietersen
Did Britton touch the rope? The third umpire says four runs.
19.5 . Sykes to Pietersen
Angled in, on the front foot, defends to the off.
19.6 W Sykes to Pietersen
Big appeal by Sykes but there was an inside edge onto the pad. What? No - the umpire has given him out! Surely not? Pietersen is looking at his bat and doesn't want to go and you cannot blame him.
