Marnus Labuschagne was let off the hook once again by England, this time on 95, as Jos Buttler messed up a straightforward catch. James Anderson could have had his first wicket with the second new ball, but the wicketkeeper did not co-operate. Labuschagne attempted to punch one off the backfoot but got a thick edge that was put down by Buttler. It was a regulation chance and the dropped chance has the crowd up in joy even as the culprit wears a downtrodden look on his face.
