View dismissal MJ Lumb lbw b Jadeja 18 28 16 1 1 112.50
6.1 this is for the naysayers. Wicket first ball for Jadeja. Will Smith do the same later? Short of a length, quick, pitches outside off, then breaks in and beats the bat to catch him in front 50/1
View dismissal SR Watson run out (Hilfenhaus) 46 39 30 5 2 153.33
8.5 from Jadeja, has he taken it too lightly?. Cut away to sweeper-cover, he wants the second, but never looks comfortable with it. Hilfenahus fires in a throw on the half-volley, Dhoni is in front of the stumps, and is lucky that he has not gloved this direct-hit away. Watson dives, but can't make it in time 78/2
View dismissal NJ Maddinson b Ashwin 12 27 16 1 0 75.00
13.3 Maddinson has had no clue against the spinner, and he caps it with a poor shot to get bowled. Moves well across and well before Ashwin has delivered. Ashwin fires in a full and straight delivery to knock the stumps over 110/4
View dismissal BJ Haddin*† c Hilfenhaus b Ashwin 20 14 18 1 1 111.11
13.1 Hilfenhaus is changing this game from the outfield. It's a long hop from Ashwin, Haddin is hurried into the pull a little, but the highlight here is the forward-diving catch from Hilfenhaus at deep square leg. Even when diving low, Hilfenhaus takes it with fingers pointing up 109/3

19.6 gives this an almighty swing, but finds out long-off 185/5

View dismissal MEK Hussey c Lumb b O'Keefe 16 39 19 2 0 84.21
8.6 slog-sweep, parallel to the ground, and it carries right into deep midwicket's lap. The shot was on despite the presence of deep midwicket, and he nailed it too, but couldn't get the elevation 67/3
View dismissal M Vijay b Starc 1 6 5 0 0 20.00
1.3 Feet rooted. Bat swinging. Ball swinging. Stumps flying. Always on the card. Vijay has played completely down the wrong line as this full delivery swings in towards the stumps and beats the inside edge 3/1
View dismissal F du Plessis c Starc b Cummins 43 28 25 5 2 172.00
7.6 Gets too much under this one to end this flier. He walks down the wicket and is trying to hit it straight for a six, but he is not close enough to the lenght of it, and sends it into the orbit. Starc runs in from long-on, settles under it, and takes a safe catch 64/2
View dismissal SK Raina c Smith b Henriques 57 39 33 8 2 172.72
16.3 what a catch by Smith. You can say anything about Steve's batting and bowling, you have to doff your hat to his fielding. This is lofted high towards long-on, Smith stays at the edge of the fence, and catches it over his shoulder. How easy he makes this look 141/5
View dismissal S Badrinath c †Haddin b Henriques 6 25 11 0 0 54.54
14.2 length ball, lays an almighty slot, gets a thick edge through to the keeper. Not sure this wicket is great news for Sixers. Badri did provide them a few dot balls 122/4
View dismissal MS Dhoni*† c Hazlewood b Henriques 8 12 8 1 0 100.00
16.5 and now the captain departs too. Henriques seals the Man-of-the-Match award. I can see people growing this moustache to emulate Henriques now. Bouncer, on off, Dhoni has no room, pulls towards deep midwicket, and Hazelwood dives forward to take a special catch. Special, considering he is a fast bowler 141/6
View dismissal RA Jadeja c Rohrer b Watson 2 10 3 0 0 66.66
18.1 Jadeja slogs, Jadeja goes. Length ball, he just swings across it, and manages just a thick edge to cover 155/7
View dismissal R Ashwin c Smith b Starc 18 12 9 3 0 200.00
19.2 Ashwin is gone. Smith is superb on the boundary again. Moves across the stumps, gets a length ball, shovels it towards cow corner, but there is Smith in its way 166/8
