Muralitharan to Cosgrove, OUT, Cosgrove initially looks to use his feets but Murali hurries him up and he plays a late cute straight off the edge onto his stumps. The Thunder are in all sorts of trouble here

Samuels to Borgas, OUT, Borgas tries to work a delivery from off stump through the leg side but plays too early and it takes the outside edge and drops into the hands of O'Brien at point. Quite hard to believe what's happening here. This is meant to be the Big Bash
