  , Marsh to McCullum, OUT, he's given! McCullum is lbw, but is asking for the height, and he wants to review. Back of a length ball cuts back in and McCullum was up on his toes to hit the very top flap of the front pad. Caught on the crease, and he is a short man. Nothing on Hot-Spot, they go to RTS to confirm. No bat involved, clearly. Three reds on Hawk-Eye and Marsh has done the trick.
  , Marsh to McCullum, FOUR, "Catch," they cry as Baz plays away from his body. Bird at gully seemed to be a little late to dive to his right, not being a normal gully. That man is bowling at the moment.
