18.5

Hazlewood to Voges, 2 runs, good length but too much width and Voges slashes to third man for a couple

18.6

Hazlewood to Voges, 2 runs, yorker from Hazlewood and Voges drives straight to cover and runs, he gives up running but the throw misses and some untidy backing up allows them to come back for a second

19.6

Lee to Cartwright, 1 bye, Cartwright plays and misses but Voges is quick as they scamper through for the bye

Brett Lee's figures of 4 for 28 stand out like a beacon on a spinners wicket. He reduced the visitors to two for none in the first over before Katich and Whiteman's well-crafted 129-run partnership brought the Scorchers back into the game. Katich finished with 71 off 56 deliveries, while Whiteman was out for 54 off 49 balls. A quick burst from Voges at the death ensured they passed the 150 mark which may well prove to be a very good score on this slow wicket. Join us in a few minutes for the Sixers' reply.

    • AC Voges 19 (8b 1x4 1x6)
