A rank half-tracker on middle, Perera either could have hit it anywhere out of the park or nudged somewhere round the corner for some runs. Instead he decides to go aerially and ends up picking up the lone man, Hardik Pandya, at deep mid-wicket to perfection. The hosts are just disintegrating quickly here.
