2.3 overs (2 Runs)
Full toss on middle, Rahul flicks but he doesn’t time it well. It goes to deep square leg for two.
2.2 overs (0 Run)
Another loud appeal but the umpire is unmoved again. This time Australia is not going to take the review. A length ball around off and middle, Rahul looks to work it on the leg side but misses to get struck on the pad. A massive appeal but it has been turned down. The Aussies do not risk the review this time as they have burnt one already.
2.1 overs (1 Run)
NOT OUT! Pitching outside leg and Dhawan will stay. Very full ball on the pads, Dhawan looks to flick but misses. They all appeal but nothing from the umpire. Wade has a word with the bowler and then calls for the DRS. Replays roll in! There is nothing on RTS and nothing on Hotspot either. What does the Ball Tracker says? Pitching outside leg. Dhawan is safe. Australia lose their one of the reviews. In the end, the batsmen take a leg bye.
Matthew Wade takes a review for LBW against Dhawan. Let’s see what the replays show. It is a fair delivery as Hot Spot comes in but it detects nothing. RTS comes in now and it too shows no spike. Ball Tacker comes on and it shows that the ball is pitching outside leg. Dhawan survives and Australia lose a review.
Just the one over for Daniel Sams as Andrew Tye comes onto bowl now.
1.6 overs (1 Run)
Just a single on the last ball. Good start from Abbott too. Shortish and outside off, Dhawan forces it to sweeper cover for one.

Great shot but for nothing. Full and wide outside off, Dhawan drills the drive but finds the cover-point fielder.
1.4 overs (1 Run)
Short and wide outside off, Rahul cuts it hard to deep point for a single. Width offered and Rahul went hard at it but they have a protection in the deep. Abbott bowling to his field here.
1.3 overs (1 Run)
Dhawan is off the mark in a streaky fashion. A length ball outside off, Dhawan looks to drive but gets a thick outside edge that goes to third man for one.
1.2 overs (0 Run)
Fuller and outside off, Dhawan times it well but finds the cover fielder.
1.1 overs (1 Run)

0.6 over (1 Run)

0.1 over (0 Run)
Sams is right on the money! A length ball around middle, Rahul looks to work it on the leg side but the ball comes back in just a touch and bounces extra to hit him high on the pad.
