    Put down on four by Pieter Malan, the Kent batsman was then dropped on 25 by Dwaine Pretorius before finally being dismissed when Rassie van der Dussen did the business.

    In all, Denly has been given seven let-offs in Test cricket since his debut a year ago … unsurprisingly no other batsman has been dropped more in the red-ball game in the same period.
