View dismissal DJ Bravo b Nannes 7 7 10 1 0 70.00
1.6 there's the first wicket! Good length ball on the middle stump and straightening. Bravo is playing for the movement and is beaten. The ball hits the middle stump and Bravo has to go back to the hut 10/1
View dismissal MJ Lumb b Maxwell 25 36 22 4 0 113.63
9.3 how well has Maxwell bowled. He notices that Lumb has moved across before the ball is bowled. He slips a faster, fuller delivery on the middle stump. Lumb tries to compensate by looking to sweep. He misses and Maxwell strikes 69/3
View dismissal NJ Maddinson st †Manou b Shahid Afridi 29 21 21 5 0 138.09
7.5 wicket! Afridi sees Maddinson advancing down the track and bowls a fuller ball. Maddinson misses the intended cover drive with his backfoot in the air. Manou is quick to whip the bails off after collecting the ball. Maddinson fails to convert the start, yet again 56/2
View dismissal SPD Smith* b Harwood 25 34 23 0 1 108.69
17.1 and he does what he did so well against Sydney Thunder. Bowling at the death. Smith looks to go after the off cutter and manages only an inside edge that crashes into the leg stump. A good beginning to the new spell for Harwood 132/4
View dismissal MC Henriques c †Manou b Nannes 41 35 30 3 1 136.66
18.3 the variety that Nannes has, is amazing. This time he gets the ball to skid from the surface and forces Henriques to go for the shot early. As he is into the stroke early, Henriques gets an outside edge back to the keeper. Clever variation in pace by Nannes in this over 138/6
View dismissal BJ Rohrer c Nannes b Harwood 2 1 2 0 0 100.00
17.3 Harwood is among the wickets again! He digs it in short on the off stump. Rohrer stays rooted to the crease and pulls it to deep midwicket. Nannes doesn't move an inch from his fielding position at deep midwicket and takes the catch easily 134/5

View dismissal AJ Finch c Maddinson b Thornely 25 16 15 3 2 166.66
3.3 now that's a way to silence the partisan crowd! Taking the wicket. Thornely pitches it outside the off stump. Finch drives it to mid-off. Maddinson running to the left seemed to have over-run it . He is in control as he takes the catch easily and Finch has to go 35/1
BJ Hodge not out 72 68 51 5 3 141.17
View dismissal GJ Maxwell c Thornely b Hazlewood 3 3 3 0 0 100.00
4.2 fuller ball on the off stump. Thornely can't be kept out of the match today. Maxwell goes for the flick shot powered by his wrists. They arent as powerful as Owais Shah's as he can't clear Thornely at deep square-leg. A crucial wicket that as Maxwell is capable of producing the big strokes 40/2
