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

Doran to Wade, OUT, flighted ball outside the off stump. Wade goes for the sweep shot again. This time he doesn't cover the line of the ball and gets a top edge that is easily taken by Coyte at short fine-leg

MS Wade c Coyte b Doran 14 (29m 14b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Coyte to White, OUT, short ball on the off stump. White looks to pull it and is early into his shot. He gets a top edge that is snaffled up by Warner running back from short third-man. He is greeted by boos though as it is White's home ground. Melbourne Stars in a spot of bother now

Gayle to Voges, 1 run, OUT, Hussey is run-out! Fuller ball on the off stump. Voges pushes it to long-on. Hussey calls him for a non-existent couple. He puts his head down and runs to the bowler's end. Turns out that it is not enough as the throw is right on top of the stumps. Gayle colledts the ball and whips the bails off

DJ Hussey run out 52 (31m 27b 3x4 3x6) SR: 192.59
