View dismissal SE Marsh c Rohrer b McKay 4 5 1 0 80.00
0.5 what a catch by Rohrer at cover! It was a fuller ball and Marsh gets a leading edge as he looks to clip it away. Rohrer had to move across from short cover and flings himself to his left. Times the dive to perfection and snaffles it two-handed. Bright, positive start for Thunder 4/1
View dismissal M Klinger c Cummins b Watson 38 32 5 0 118.75
10.3 slower bouncer gets Klinger. Watson's mixing up of pace gets him an early reward. Klinger was going for the pull shot but gets the timing all wrong as he skews it towards mid-on. The ball stays in the air a long time and Cummins does well to catch it as he dives forward. Judges it well 89/2
View dismissal IR Bell st †Lenton b Green 45 38 2 2 118.42
14.1 well-done by the bowler and Lenton pulls off good stumping as well on debut. Bell was coming down the track looking to go over mid-on. Makes no contact as the bowler has pushed it across from around the wicket. The angle takes it away from the right-hander and he makes no contact. They check again, possibly to see if the keeper has collected it cleanly. He's done fine 116/3

View dismissal AJ Turner c Morgan b Cummins 20 11 1 2 181.81
18.2 backs away to this length ball and tries to flay it with a flat bat through long-off but it is straight down the throat of the fielder there. It's Eoin Morgan and he snaffles it reverse-cupped 155/4

  Sydney Thunder innings (target: 178 runs from 20 overs) R B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal RJ Gibson b Willey 3 8 0 0 37.50
2.4 gone, through the gate. Gibson pays the price for trying to force it across the line to the leg side. It was a good length ball that was pushed across from over the wicket. Comes on straight with the angle and Gibson misses he flick as the ball crashes into off stump 16/1
View dismissal KR Patterson c †Whiteman b Willey 11 9 2 0 122.22
2.6 gets him to go after a wide delivery and the batsman falls into the trap. It was a length ball that moves away late after pitching. It's a lovely angle and Patterson is culpable of sticking his bat out in the channel. Gets a thick, healthy outside edge that is gladly taken by the wicketkeeper 17/2
View dismissal SR Watson* c Klinger b Richardson 3 7 0 0 42.85
3.6 poor shot from Watson. Tries to force the issue instead of fighting it out. Gets a top edge on a pull shot. It was outside off but gets big on him and Watson skies it to midwicket where Klinger settles under it 19/3
View dismissal EJG Morgan c Willey b Turner 8 10 1 0 80.00
8.3 cut to backward point. The plan works. Turner was brought on to see if he can prey on the pressure that was built by the quicks. And he has managed to do just that. This is another flatter delivery on leg stump Morgan backs away and prepares to cut, and all he does is offer a catch like it was fielding practice 42/4
View dismissal BJ Rohrer c Turner b Tye 15 18 2 0 83.33
9.2 pops it to short midwicket! Doesn't time the short ball, possibly because it was cramping him. Contact is made high on the bat, which virtually means there is no timing on the shot. Scorchers are making sure this is a quick finish 48/5
View dismissal AD Russell c Turner b Johnson 6 9 1 0 66.66
10.4 skier, massive skier, it's cover's catch. Turner calls for it (That's brilliant work because he had two of his team-mates also hunting down the ball) He watches it carefully. He moves to his left a little bit to get under the ball and takes it reverse cup. Easy peasy. All this after a fuller ball outside off - slower as well - lures a thick outside edge as Russell throws his bat at it 50/6
View dismissal PJ Cummins run out (†Whiteman) 39 26 6 0 150.00
17.1 from MR Marsh, what a throw! Cummins is caught short by the wicketkeeper Sam Whiteman, who first takes off towards square leg in hopes of getting under a top edge. When that didn't happen, he realises he has a run-out chance. He has already done away with his right glove. Picks it up with his left hand, turns around and transfers the ball into his right, all in one motion, takes aim and hits the mark 107/8
View dismissal JS Lenton c Turner b MR Marsh 16 14 2 1 114.28
15.2 smashes it down the throat of long-on. Turner has another catch, good captaincy to have him patrolling the straight boundaries. Good bowling to bring him in play as Marsh aims on and around off stump 92/7
