View dismissal M Klinger c Bollinger b Somerville 18 15 3 0 120.00
4.2 another one goes! Klinger picks out point. A flat delivery outside off, Klinger wanted to go straight but the ball didn't spin. Skewed off the outside half, carries at a good height to Bollinger who gets his hands up and takes a two-handed overhead catch 26/2
View dismissal SE Marsh c Abbott b Bollinger 8 11 1 0 72.72
3.6 taken at deep square leg. Didn't keep it down, didn't put all into it. Found the fielder in the end. Short delivery on middle, Marsh pulls with a cross-bat and finds the fielder, who runs across to his right and completes a routine catch. 26/1
View dismissal SM Whiteman c Botha b Abbott 28 16 3 1 175.00
8.5 just a simple catch in current cricket. A slow, short delivery on off, Whiteman pulls, looking for the same short boundary. Splices off the top half and carries to Botha at deep square leg, who runs around to his right, takes the catch, but throws the ball back up as he notices his momentum is taking him over. Enters the field of play again to complete the catch 69/3
View dismissal IR Bell c O'Keefe b Somerville 21 18 2 0 116.66
12.1 another one goes. Bell falls. Premeditated the reverse sweep, gets into position but may have just played under the line. A thick top edge is well taken by O'Keefe, running to his left from third man. Kept his eyes on the ball all along 86/5
View dismissal DJ Willey c Henriques b Abbott 4 8 0 0 50.00
11.1 taken. Full and wide from Abbott, Willey crashes his drive with immense power but finds Henrqiues at cover who bends his knees and takes a quality reflect two-handed reverse-cupped catch. Another stumbling Willey innings ends 79/4
MR Marsh not out 31 29 2 0 106.89
View dismissal AC Voges* c Botha b O'Keefe 1 3 0 0 33.33
13.2 straight to the fielder. Yikes. Tosses that up nicely on off, Voges looked to go inside-out cover but that didn't turn much. Takes the inside half of the bat and carries straight to long-off. Good idea, flawed execution 90/6
View dismissal AJ Turner c Abbott b Dwarshuis 6 6 0 0 100.00
15.2 another one goes. Scorchers in big trouble now. Full and straight, couldn't have asked for the ball in a better slot. Turner wanted to whip the ball over midwicket but ended up lobbing a catch to long-on. 99/7
View dismissal AC Agar c Dwarshuis b Botha 6 6 1 0 100.00
16.5 another one. Slower through the air on off, Agar shuffles across and chips his catch to long-on. Aiming for the short boundary. Timing is key, not nearly enough there 107/8
JA Richardson not out 6 8 1 0 75.00

View dismissal SW Billings c Richardson b MR Marsh 40 30 7 0 133.33
7.4 taken. Billings drags a pull from well outside off. Poor shot selection. Billings fails to get on top of the bounce and all he does is top edge a cross-batted swat into the hands of deep square leg. Hitting into the off side would have been a better choice 51/2
View dismissal BJ Haddin c Richardson b Tye 7 9 1 0 77.77
4.2 excellent slower delivery. 114 kph, the slower variation outside off - the knuckle ball. Gets some away shape. Haddin is through his shot, checks it in the end and ends up skewing one to short third man off the outside half. A superb delivery from Tye, he has honed his skills with Gloucestershire, a county Klinger captains. 35/1
View dismissal MC Henriques* lbw b Tye 24 21 2 0 114.28
12.4 plumb if there was no bat. The umpire says just pad. Speared in on middle and leg, Henriques doesn't make contact with his flick. Hit on the pad in front of middle. But was there a tickle on that? Henriques is distraught 89/3
View dismissal JC Silk b Tye 28 28 1 0 100.00
16.6 poor stroke, considering it was Tye's last ball. On the pads, the knuckle ball. Silk was beaten for pace and misses his swing into the leg side. Ricochets onto leg stumps via the pad 114/4
