View dismissal RJ Quiney c Richardson b Johnson 0 1 0 0 0.00
0.1 can you believe it? He's bowled a shocker, but has a wicket and the danger man is gone! Short and sliding down leg, Quiney flicks but picks out deep fine leg. Simply helped it straight down the throat of the fielder. The man who has been in sensational form all tournament is out for a golden duck. Johnson hares to high five his mates. 0/1
View dismissal LJ Wright c Turner b Johnson 0 3 0 0 0.00
0.4 make that one more. Wright shapes to cut but there isn't much width there, goes through with the slash that flies low to Turner who takes a super catch at gully. Johnson leaps, Melbourne Stars in trouble already 0/2
View dismissal KP Pietersen c Klinger b Johnson 5 10 0 0 50.00
4.1 chips a simple catch to midwicket. Voges rewarded for attacking captaincy, and Johnson has ripped the game open. Looks like this short of length delivery on middle stopped on KP, who looked to work it uppishly, only to find the fielder. Real trouble 21/3
View dismissal SE Gotch c Agar b Bresnan 48 47 3 3 102.12
17.2 outstanding catch! This was a waist-high full toss on middle, he backed away and slapped it. At one point, it looked certain to race past Agar, but he moved early to his left and then dived low even as the ball was dying on him before using his height to good effect at mid-off. Super catch 112/7
View dismissal MP Stoinis c Marsh b Richardson 5 11 1 0 45.45
5.6 picks out the lone man at deep square. This was too short, he rocked back and pulled, ended up dragging it from way outside off, and Marsh takes a dolly. It's all falling apart very quickly for Stars 26/4
View dismissal DJ Hussey* c Bell b Turner 26 20 1 2 130.00
13.2 so what if they couldn't get him off the previous delivery? Hussey is gone now, but not before Bell briefly gives the bowler some shivers by juggling at sweeper cover. This was full and flat outside off from around the stumps, he backed away and carved it straight to the fielder. 78/5
View dismissal EP Gulbis c Marsh b Agar 9 8 1 0 112.50
15.5 swung across the line, didn't get to the pitch of the ball but went through with the stroke, Marsh at long-on this was was mindful of where the rope was. Went back, timed his jump well and took the catch. But he immediately realised momentum was taking him over, and so popped the ball back into the field of play before recovering quickly to complete the catch. 95/6
View dismissal BW Hilfenhaus c Agar b Tye 10 6 0 1 166.66
18.1 hit a massive six in the previous over, goes for a repeat but can only toe-end a wild slog. Agar settles underneath it at long-off and takes a comfortable catch 117/8

View dismissal SM Whiteman c Gulbis b Stoinis 31 26 2 1 119.23
8.3 finds the man! The bounce and direction has done the trick. Whiteman goes through with the pull but was beaten for pace, top edged it towards the long boundary at deep square, where Gulbis ran backwards diagonally before settling underneath to take a superb catch! 64/2
View dismissal M Klinger c Hussey b Worrall 7 5 0 1 140.00
1.3 gobbled up at first slip, "come on," roars the bowler. This is a cracking delivery. Hits the deck hard, the ball nips away from length on off, Klinger is squared up and the thick edge is taken comfortably by Hussey. 10/1

View dismissal AC Voges* c Stoinis b Gulbis 13 11 1 1 118.18
11.3 pulled straight to midwicket. Is there life in the game yet? Steps out and swings across the line but hit it off the toe end. Very unlike Voges 90/3
