View dismissal DP Hughes c Bresnan b Turner 8 7 10 0 1 80.00
1.6 huge roar resonates across the WACA! Steps out to clear mid-off, but got too close to the delivery and could only manage to hit it as far as mid-off. Simple catch. Bresnan didn't have to move an inch 9/1
View dismissal MJ Lumb c †Whiteman b Johnson 5 15 5 1 0 100.00
2.6 it goes from bad to worse for Sixers. Looks to smash the length ball over cover, but can only feather the edge to the keeper. Johnson knew it straightaway, the umpire took a while but that could have well been to see if the batsman walked off. Once he didn't, he merely completed the formalities by raising the finger. No real doubt there. Fiery start this for the Scorchers! 17/3
View dismissal NJ Maddinson run out (Richardson/†Whiteman) 1 5 2 0 0 50.00
2.4 from Johnson, shuffles across and flicks the full ball on middle towards deep fine leg, took a while to turn and was in trouble. The throw comes in on the bounce. Whiteman, who had a long way to go, collects the ball and breaks the bails. Maddinson was an inch behind the crease despite being full stretch. Terrible start this for the Sixers. 15/2
View dismissal MC Henriques* c Klinger b Richardson 21 35 22 1 1 95.45
11.1 dagger through the hearts of the Sydney Sixers' fans. The ball skids onto him faster than he expected, goes through with the pull and ends up slicing it straight to midwicket. The crisis man is gone. 79/5
View dismissal BJ Haddin c Klinger b Richardson 38 26 25 4 2 152.00
9.4 the bouncer has done the trick. Poor shot selection this time from Haddin, who looks to fetch the pull from outside off, can only toe-end it to midwicket. Haddin reckons that should have been called a second bouncer for the over, which means it should have been a no-ball, but the umpire reckons that's fine. Haddin can't believe it and walks off shaking his head. Marginal call, at best again 74/4
View dismissal JC Silk c Johnson b Richardson 3 10 5 0 0 60.00
11.4 straight down the throat of third man. Silk looks to absolutely smash this to the point boundary but the ball flies off the edge. The pace has done him in again. Real trouble now after a brief revival. They're falling apart, and how. The crowd roars 80/6
View dismissal J Botha c Richardson b Bresnan 32 35 25 3 1 128.00
18.4 another heave, this time from outside off, the ball flies off the top edge and the fine leg fielder comes around and makes a tough catch look easy. The leg-cutter has done the trick for Bresnan. Enterprising knock nonetheless 129/9
View dismissal SA Abbott c Agar b Bresnan 5 21 10 0 0 50.00
16.1 full toss outside off, Abbott goes down on one knee and swings across the line. Probably the shot was on but the timing was completely off. The ball dipped on him and he hit it off the toe end of the bat, Agar moved to his right, settled under the ball at long-on and then leapt up to complete the catch. 105/7
View dismissal BJ Dwarshuis b Bresnan 9 10 7 1 0 128.57
18.1 roars in joy! Ripper of a yorker, Dwarshuis is late on the attempted squeeze behind point. This was full, straight and too good for a lower order batsman. 'You miss, I hit' stuff. 122/8

View dismissal SM Whiteman st †Haddin b Lyon 41 31 21 5 3 195.23
7.3 end of an entertaining innings, and it's an ugly heave that has brought his downfall. Didn't need to charge the bowler especially with them being well ahead of the asking rate. Stepped out to heave, missed it completely as Haddin effected the simplest of stumpings. Exhilarating knock 75/1
