View dismissal RJ Quiney c DLR Smith b Lee 0 3 3 0 0 0.00
0.5 edged and gone! Quiney's form has been a tad up and down and he fails yet again, it was on a length and there seemed to be a bit of swing away, the batsman was playing across, gets an edge that travels to a rather deep first slipper 2/1
View dismissal SO Henry run out (Henriques) 6 14 11 0 0 54.54
3.3 from O'Keefe, appeal for a run-out here and gone! gone, run-out, the batsman pulls it away to the leg-side and wants to take a single, Hodge does not and sends him back, Henriques sends a quick, flat throw back to the keeper who whips the bails off before the debutant can get back...two down! 17/2
View dismissal BJ Hodge c Narine b Moran 51 53 33 4 1 154.54
14.6 gone, caught at backward point! finally a breakthrough, it was shorter and wider outside the off, which isn't the best of balls to deliver when you have a short third-man and point inside the circle but then it is also one that gets him a wicket, guided straight to the fielder! 135/3
View dismissal GJ Maxwell c SPD Smith b Moran 82 49 50 6 3 164.00
16.3 gone, caught, finally! it was full again and he was trying to smack it yet again, does not get the timing and it loops up straight to Steven Smith and he does not miss it this time! 148/4
View dismissal DJ Hussey c Thornely b Lee 7 13 10 0 0 70.00
17.6 short, pulled and caught! it was not quick enough, it was a bouncer and he had to drag it from outside the off, gets it only up to the deep square-leg fielder and it is easily taken 153/5
View dismissal CL White c Feldman b Moran 10 12 6 0 1 166.66
18.6 short of length and pulled straight into the hands of fine-leg! White was on the front foot and did not go back to play that hook, he gets a top edge that goes high and almost handsome...not so this time, the fielder catches it well 165/6
JP Faulkner not out 3 9 3 0 0 100.00

View dismissal BJ Haddin*† b Malinga 39 32 28 3 2 139.28
16.1 bowled him, first up! tremendous yorker from Malinga, it was quick, it was straight and Haddin only wanted to get the bat down in time to keep it out, but does not get anywhere close, the stumps are rattled and Stars are on their way to a third win in the competition 124/4
View dismissal MC Henriques c White b Warne 2 4 4 0 0 50.00
15.5 and again, and this time he gets some bat on that one, it scoops up for the fielder at extra-cover to take a simple catch! he threw the ball up again and gets it to turn away that beat his stroke 123/3
