View dismissal MJ Lumb c Quiney b McKay 18 14 13 2 1 138.46
3.5 slower ball does the trick! McKay bowls one outside the off stump. Lumb is foxed and doesn't have the time to get out of the square drive he wants to play. The ball lands safely in the hands of Quiney at point. Another start thrown away by Lumb 34/1
View dismissal DJ Bravo c Faulkner b Warne 51 52 39 4 3 130.76

View dismissal NJ Maddinson lbw b Hussey 24 14 17 1 2 141.17
7.5 he goes for his favorite sweep and is struck on the back leg in line with the middle stump. He loves the shot but doesn't seem to have got the control on it. Another promising innings nipped in the bud 69/2
View dismissal SPD Smith* lbw b Simpson 7 9 11 0 0 63.63

View dismissal B Lee run out (Wright/†Wade) 1 4 1 0 0 100.00

View dismissal RJ Quiney c Henriques b Lee 14 11 15 3 0 93.33
2.6 short on the middle stump. Invitation enough for Quiney to go for the pull shot. Go, he does, but doesn't get as much bat on the ball as he wants and holes out to Henriques at deep midwicket. Lee has his arms up in celebration 18/2
View dismissal MS Wade c Smith b Thornely 1 7 2 0 0 50.00

View dismissal GJ Bailey c Lumb b Smith 33 33 25 3 0 132.00
10.3 flighted ball on the middle stump. Bailey goes for the lofted but doesn't clear the fielder at long-on. Instead Lumb takes a simple catch to send Bailey on his way 77/3

14.6 Smith to Voges, fuller on the off stump. Voges lofts it over the bowler's head and wants a couple. Hussey seemed to be in danger from the moment he turned for the second and he is out by at least a couple of feet 114/4
View dismissal CL White* c Lee b MacGill 3 3 4 0 0 75.00
11.2 fuller ball on the middle stump. White goes for his release stroke, the loft over long-off. He seems to have misjudged the length of the ball as he doesn't get enough distance. Lee running in from long-off pulls off a corker and sets off to congratulate MacGill 81/4
View dismissal AC Voges run out (Maddinson/†Nevill) 31 26 22 3 0 140.90
17.5 from Thornely, fuller ball on the middle stump. Voges turns it to deep square-leg and wants a couple. He slips at the bowlers end and is well short of the throw by Maddinson 140/7

16.2 fuller ball outside the off stump. Wright drag flicks it straight into the hands of Lumb at wide long-on. Sixers are surely ahead in the race to get two points from this game 128/6
View dismissal JP Faulkner c Smith b Starc 13 11 8 2 0 162.50
18.6 not quite so. Faulkner lofts a fuller ball to Smith at long-on. Stars need 15 runs off the final over to pull off a heist here 152/8
