It clearly required something special to get rid of the in-form Kiwi and Josh Hazlewood managed to get the wicket of Finn Allen. Hazlewood was bowling the fifth over of the innings with Allen on the crease having already tallied 42 runs. He had hit the fast bowler for multiple boundaries in his previous over by dancing down the track.

Attacking seemed to be the sole mantra adopted by Finn Allen and Hazlewood anticipated his tactics perfectly on the first ball of the fifth over. Allen once again stepped down the track to tonk the ball for a maximum but the pacer adjusted his length, putting his experience over the years to good use.
