View dismissal TP Ludeman lbw b Brathwaite 13 13 2 0 100.00
3.2 the king of the dab celebrates, doesn't even bother appealing. Lands it at length on middle and off from wide of the crease, Ludeman is hurried into an attempted whip to the leg side but misses it completely. That would have hit leg stump. 21/1
View dismissal BR Dunk b Watson 65 40 5 3 162.50
15.2 that's a ripper of a delivery. Watson lets out a roar. This is full, the ball tails away ever-so-slightly from middle, he was still coming down on the back swing as he tried to squeeze it to the off side, played down the wrong line, and gone. End of a super knock from Dunk, but you just got the feeling that he was tiring just a little 130/3
View dismissal BJ Hodge* c Nair b Watson 39 32 2 2 121.87
12.3 takes on the man in the deep, and can only hit it as far as Arjun Nair at deep midwicket. This was a juicy full toss on middle, swung across the line but didn't quite get it off the middle. End of a sprightly cameo 113/2
View dismissal KA Pollard run out (Rohrer/†Lenton) 47 22 0 5 213.63
19.5 from Watson, gets a thick inside edge towards deep square, Pollard was just turning when the fielder fired the throw, and he was miles outside the crease when the wicketkeeper whipped the bails off. End of a super innings 178/5
View dismissal JS Lehmann run out (Green/†Lenton/Brathwaite) 4 8 0 0 50.00
17.5 Brathwaite to Pollard, pulled from outside off towards deep midwicket. Pollard had already completed the second by the time Lehmann turned around, and in the end had to simply sacrifice his wicket for the overseas professional. The keeper turned in an underarm throw to Brathwaite, who whipped the bails off at the bowler's end 145/4

View dismissal KR Patterson b O'Connor 29 29 1 0 100.00
10.4 the frustration of being unable to get the runs kept playing on his mind and has eventually led to his wicket. This was the wrong'un that was superbly slowed down, Patterson backed away to swat that over cover but swung through early and saw the ball cannon into the stumps. Wicket for persistence 79/3
View dismissal JM Vince c †Carey b Pollard 2 2 0 0 100.00
1.2 beauty! That's the catch of the match, a one-handed stunner. This was slower and fuller outside off, he backed away to go over point but only found a thick edge. The keeper had to take split-second decision. Does he go with both hands or fling himself like a goal-keeper and try and use the webbing? He chose the second option. The ball stuck, and he held on even as the elbow hit the turf. 2/1
View dismissal SR Watson* c Laughlin b Lehmann 39 26 6 1 150.00
7.5 as easy as they come for Laughlin. This was short but didn't bounce as much as Watson would have liked, he shaped to pull, even went through with the stroke but could only get it off the bottom of the bat. On another night, he may have hit that to down town Sydney. Not this time. The man from long on had enough time to run in, call for it, steer clear of anyone else and then wait, wait before taking it with his palms facing the sky. Watson grimaces as he walks off 60/2
View dismissal BJ Rohrer b Sodhi 7 9 0 0 77.77
11.4 through the gate! Sodhi with a celebratory leap. This is superb bowling. This one drifts away, pitches, breaks back in to beat the batsman's attempted flick. Big, big gap between bat and pad and he's wedged through. Is that the end for Thunder? 82/5
View dismissal CR Brathwaite b Sodhi 1 2 0 0 50.00
11.1 got'im! This is a delightful delivery. Flight, dip and turn. This one was drifting in from wide of the crease, spin back in a touch because it's the wrong'un, Carlos goes for a wild slog but wasn't to the pitch of the ball. Missed it completely as the zing bails are disturbed. Sodhi is delighted, this is a wicket well-deserved, one any legspinner would be proud of. Trouble now for Sydney Thunder 81/4
View dismissal RJ Gibson run out (O'Connor/Sodhi) 4 5 0 0 80.00
13.2 Sodhi to Lenton, wrong'un that stops on him, worked to short third man but Lendon was halfway down the pitch when he was sent back. Sodhi does well to collect the throw cleanly and break the bails at the bowler's end. Not even a full-length dive could save Gibson. This is all folding up quickly for Thunder. They're right on the edge 92/6
View dismissal JS Lenton lbw b Sodhi 7 8 1 0 87.50
13.3 another one for Sodhi. This is a sensational spell. Flight, turn and bounce. This one spins back in sharply, the batsman looks to force that past midwicket. The mistake he did was to play outside the line. The umpire quickly raised the finger. That would missed leg according to hawkeye 92/7
View dismissal CJ Green c Neser b Sodhi 1 3 0 0 33.33
15.1 at the moment, it appears like all Sodhi needs to do to take a wicket is just turn up and bowl. Floats a legspinner outside off, he looks to fetch a slog sweep from outside off, connects well but finds deep midwicket. < b> These are the best figures now by an Adelaide Strikers' bowler. 101/9
View dismissal AJ Nair c †Carey b Sodhi 0 2 0 0 0.00
13.5 drawn into the drive and has been snuffed out by one that turns away sharply. Tempts him with flight and then traps him. The hard push finds the thinnest of edges that is taken well by Carey 92/8
View dismissal CJ McKay b Sodhi 8 7 0 1 114.28
15.3 six-for and he's finished it off with a cracking googly. The defending champions have been knocked out. This is a short ball that fizzes back in, he backs away to cut, but is done in by the pace. The ball crashes into the middle stump. What a spell by Sodhi. 101/10
