View dismissal TP Ludeman c Russell b McKay 2 7 0 0 28.57
2.2 one more - and Russell has taken a stunning catch running backwards! Ludeman shuffled across a bit again, flicked on the leg side and top-edged it into the covers but there's nobody in the deep. Russell has to run backward facing the boundary, from mid-off, and gets under it just in time to get both hands to it 11/2
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene c †Hartley b Watson 7 6 0 1 116.66
1.4 edged this time, excellent bowling from Watson! He moved this one away again from the batsman who only swung at it with no footwork, and feathered it to the keeper 8/1
View dismissal TM Head c Rohrer b McKay 23 17 4 0 135.29
5.3 straight to cover! It was pitched up and in the zone to be driven but Head drives it uppishly and straight to Rohrer 42/3
View dismissal BJ Hodge* b Green 14 19 0 1 73.68
9.4 misses a straight one! It pitched on length on the off stump and Hodge went for a cross-batted slog to miss it completely! 64/4
View dismissal AI Ross b McKay 47 38 5 0 123.68
19.2 Ross charges down, McKay sends down a beautiful slower delivery, almost a yorker, to deceive Ross who swings and misses that 144/7
View dismissal JS Lehmann c Green b Watson 14 14 1 0 100.00
15.2 gets a top edge and he's caught at mid on, easy one for Green. Lehmann shuffles across and swipes on the leg side, doesn't connect it well and sends that high and down the ground before Green gets under it 106/5
View dismissal MG Neser b Russell 27 16 3 1 168.75
18.6 gets the yorker right and Neser shuffles across a long way to paddle sweep that, but misses and loses his off stump! A nice cameo from Neser, that Strikers needed desperately, comes to an end 142/6
AU Rashid not out 14 3 2 1 466.66

View dismissal SR Watson c Lehmann b Laughlin 7 8 1 0 87.50
4.5 gone. Watson falls. Against the run of play. Shortish delivery on middle, Watson goes for the pull but hits it in the air, midwicket takes a sitter in front of his face. Is this the break Strikers need? 57/1
View dismissal MEK Hussey* c †Ludeman b Rashid 11 13 0 0 84.61
8.5 Rashid does it. Full and wide outside off, Hussey goes for the reverse sweep and is given out caught behind. The fielders went up immediately but the bat may have grazed the surface instead of the ball. Hussey accepts the decision and walks off. Unlucky Hus 87/2
