  New South Wales innings (20 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal DA Warner c Ontong b Langeveldt 20 24 13 1 1 153.84
4.5 Finally a catch sticks. Owais Shah is the first man, relived I am sure, to run to Ontong at deep midwicket. This is a slower short ball, Warner pulls in the air to offer a sitter to deep midwicket 41/1
View dismissal SR Watson b Peterson 34 38 29 4 1 117.24
8.1 Peterson has been teasing Watson with his flight, and Watson has been trying to hit him into the Wallajah Road. Peterson prevails. Again he leaves this hanging in the air, a tempted Watson gets ready for the slog sweep, but the ball never arrives. or at least not until Watson has completed his shot. The middle stump is hit 65/2
View dismissal DLR Smith b Philander 24 27 16 2 1 150.00
11.2 Philander is making up for his ordinary fielding earlier. He is 2.2-0-15-1 now. This is short of a length but stumps to stumps. Smith pulls across it, makes no contact, and Philander takes the stumps 90/4
View dismissal SM Katich* c Duminy b Kemp 7 8 9 0 0 77.77
10.1 and he has dismissed the opposition captain first ball. This is a gently paced delivery floated outside off, Katich gets room to free his arms and decides to go over cover. JP Duminy, in the deep, starts running in before back-pedalling to finish this overhead and a final backwards dive 82/3
View dismissal SPD Smith c Gibbs b Langeveldt 16 30 19 1 0 84.21
18.3 Another one suffers the slow death. This ball is holding up in the surface and the stroke-play seems extremely difficult with this semi-new ball. At least that's what these batsmen have made it look like. Smith finally gets a length ball, gets under it, tries to go over long-off but has got more elevation on it than length 123/6
View dismissal BJ Rohrer b Philander 8 8 9 0 0 88.88
13.5 One more for Philander. He has done nothing extraordinary with the ball, but he has been extraordinary with his stump-to-stump line. Another batsman, Rohrer this time, gets impatient, swings optimistically, and Philander hits the stumps 102/5
View dismissal MC Henriques run out (†Vilas/Steyn) 18 25 23 1 0 78.26
19.6 from Steyn, Finally Steyn bowls at regulation pace, beats Henriques's attempt to scoop, collects the throw from the keeper to run Henriques out who has belatedly decided to run a bye 135/8
View dismissal SNJ O'Keefe c Shah b Steyn 1 6 3 0 0 33.33
19.5 Gone. O'Keefe shapes up for the scoop, Steyn bowls a wide slower one, he tries to lob this over third man, Shah gets an easy catch at point. O'Keefe will have a role to play with the ball on this slow pitch 135/7

View dismissal RE Levi c Warner b Henriques 43 34 27 6 1 159.25
9.3 Finally NSW get a wicket. Levi gets a full ball that he thinks can be deposited for a six, but he doesn't quite the elevation into this strike and finds long-on 88/1
View dismissal HH Gibbs c Henriques b Cummins 55 56 47 5 2 117.02
14.2 the slower ball gets Gibbs too. Gibbs has mastered this slow wicket so far, but this time for a change he goes for power more than touch. Ends up getting much more elevation than length. Caught at long-on 112/3
View dismissal OA Shah c Warner b SPD Smith 3 5 5 0 0 60.00
10.4 a strange little innings. Lots of premeditation followed by this charge to Smith and an easy catch to long-off. They need less than a run a ball here. A forgettable day for Shah ends with a dropped catch and a poor innings to his name 93/2
