1.2 from Oakley, fuller in length which straightens after pitching outside off, Marsh leans forward and pushes it infront of mid-off and off for a quick single, Botha gets underneath it very quickly and direct throw towards the non-striker's end and he is caught just short of the crease. 3/1
View dismissal SM Katich* c Oakley b Neser 36 30 4 1 120.00
8.3 and a big blow for the Perth, touch short which was pitches on middle and shapes away from Katich. He stays on his crease and reach it but not in a good control and a leading edge went flat into the hands of Oakley at backward point 63/3
View dismissal SM Whiteman c Oakley b Zampa 19 15 3 0 126.66
7.4 and Zampa strikes, tossed up delivery on middle stump and Whiteman comes out and tries to hoick it over midwicket, he didn't get the elevation and went high in the sky towards deep square leg, Oakley settles underneath it and holds it 60/2
View dismissal MR Marsh c Botha b Zampa 13 11 2 0 118.18
11.1 and one more, short and wide outside off which bounces a bit more than expected, Marsh waits and cuts it off the backfoot but that went straight into the hands of Botha at backward point 87/4
View dismissal AJ Turner c Hughes b Neser 25 16 0 2 156.25
15.1 that's a very soft dismissal, that was on a length outside off and a bit slower. Turner stays on the back foot and drives it straight into the hands of extra cover, Hughes doesn't miss those sitters! 112/6
View dismissal TJ Armstrong lbw b Tait 3 5 0 0 60.00
12.3 and now Tait strikes, that was on a length which pitches on off and jags back in sharply which kept low. Armstrong late to react and misses the line and went past his bat and struck right infront of middle and leg, umpire gave it straightaway! 96/5
NM Coulter-Nile not out 42 25 3 3 168.00
View dismissal Yasir Arafat c †Ludeman b Neser 0 2 0 0 0.00
15.3 another one for Neser, back of a length delivery outside off and Arafat shuffle across a bit to get behind it as it was shaping away but ended up in a genuine edge to the keeper, that's some real depth bowling from Neser. 112/7
View dismissal AC Thomas run out (Botha/Oakley) 2 7 0 0 28.57
17.5 Oakley to Coulter-Nile, length delivery outside off and Coulter-Nile gets it to wide of long-off and they goes for the second one. Botha from the long-on sprints and throws it to the non-striker end and Thomas fall short of the crease though he dives full length, Oakley whips the bails as fast as fast he can 132/8
View dismissal GB Hogg c †Ludeman b Tait 0 1 0 0 0.00
18.2 good length delivery which was pitches on middle and shapes away, 147 kph which was too pacy for Hogg who tries to get it to third man but ended up in an edge to the keeper 134/9

View dismissal AD Hales c Katich b Yasir Arafat 31 20 5 1 155.00
3.6 gone!. Fuller on middle and off, Hales tired to clear mid-on as the ball hits the inside half of the bat and floated straight into the throat of mid-on fielder 44/1
View dismissal PJ Hughes c Armstrong b Coulter-Nile 8 7 1 0 114.28
6.3 gone!! would you believe it. Length delivery on middle and leg, Hughes on the backfoot pulled to mid wicket. Armstrong sprints to his right and takes a lovely catch. 61/2
View dismissal J Botha* b Beer 6 11 0 0 54.54
10.5 cleaned him up. Tossed up and came back with the arm. Botha was looking to over covers and missed it altogether as the ball sneaks through and cannon onto the stumps. Vital break through for the Scorchers. 84/3
View dismissal CJ Ferguson c Thomas b Coulter-Nile 10 10 1 0 100.00
14.4 Ferguson falls for the trap. Low full toss on the pads, Ferguson plants his front foot and times it beautifully. And much to the dismay of him he finds the lone fielder in the deep. Game nicely poised now. 116/4
