Melbourne Stars v Sydney Thunder

1.1

Bollinger to Wade, 1 run, short ball outside the off stump. Wade leans back and upper cuts it to third-man for a single

1.2

Bollinger to Quiney, SIX, short ball on the off stump line. A slower ball. Quiney spots it and immediately shifts the weight onto the backfoot and pulls it away behind square for a maximum. A guy probably supporting the Sixers, wearing magenta, grabs the catch with both the hands

1.3

Bollinger to Quiney, no run, comes forward and drives it to mid-off

1.4

Bollinger to Quiney, no run, good length ball on the middle stump. Quiney turns it to square-leg

1.5

Bollinger to Quiney, no run, fuller ball on the off stump. Quiney defends it to the leg side

1.6

Bollinger to Quiney, OUT, he spotted the slower ball when he hit the six, this time he doesn't. Bollinger pitches it on the leg stump. Quiney is looking to go leg side again and is early into the shot as he gets a leading edge to mid-off where Edwards takes the catch

RJ Quiney c Edwards b Bollinger 7 (9m 9b 0x4 1x6) SR: 77.77

3.3

3.5
