  Sydney Sixers innings (20 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal MJ Lumb c Smith b Malinga 28 20 22 4 0 127.27
4.4 Lumb finally succeeds at what he seems to have been trying to do: find an outfielder with the pull. Slower ball again, and this time he connects with the pull for a change, only to hole out to deep midwicket 33/1
View dismissal PM Nevill c Perera b Patel 5 23 8 0 0 62.50
5.1 Sixers have nominated the pull as their favourite poison. Nevill tries one to a delivery nearly not full enough, and lobs it down mid-on's throat 40/2
View dismissal NJ Maddinson run out (Malinga) 27 23 13 2 2 207.69
10.5 Ojha to Smith, arm ball again, Maddinson calls him through for a tight single to point. The direct hit seems to have caught him short, but nobody is appealing. Belatedly, somebody appeals. Belatedly, Aleem Dar asks for the third umpire. And he is run out. That's against the run of play 76/4
View dismissal BJ Haddin*† c Rayudu b Patel 0 1 2 0 0 0.00
5.3 Patel is on fire here. Digs it in short again, provides Haddin with the room. I don't know if it is extra bounce or spongy bounce at work, but all Haddin manages with the cut is catching practice to cover-point. Hold on for a second. They are checking if the front foot has landed fine. Yes it has. Only by inches, but it has 40/3
View dismissal SPD Smith b Malinga 41 45 41 3 0 100.00
17.4 slower ball again, and he has found the timber here. Smith feels Malinga might finally bowl the quicker ball and moves across to try to scoop it. Malinga stays slow, and arrives after Smith has scooped. Leg stump gone. They check for the no-ball, but Lasith is fine 119/7
View dismissal MC Henriques lbw b Harbhajan Singh 0 1 2 0 0 0.00
11.2 and Dar has given him. That was an offbreak and could have been turning down leg. Pitched just outside off, turning past the bat even as he is playing forward. On second look, this hasn't turned that much, and Dar has judged the extent of turn to perfection 77/5
View dismissal SNJ O'Keefe c Patel b Perera 6 11 13 0 0 46.15
14.6 that;s a bouncer like he meant it. Gets it to rise throat high as opposed to the earlier waist-high effort. O'Keefe throws his bat at it, manages a top edge to fine leg where Munaf makes no mistake. I don't see Munaf making a single mistake 98/6

View dismissal DR Smith c Nevill b Henriques 26 33 28 2 1 92.85
8.2 Smith swings hard and hopes for the best again. This time he has connected well, though, and finds long-on to perfection with a flat hit 52/1
View dismissal SR Tendulkar b Henriques 22 36 23 3 1 95.65
8.5 Tendulkar is bowled again. Happening too often of late. Short of a length, middle and off, holds its line, beats the open face. Yet another innings at a strike rate of under 100 53/2
View dismissal RG Sharma run out (Cummins) 16 16 19 2 1 84.21
13.1 Cummins to Karthik, Pat Cummins is one of the best fielders off his own bowling going around today. Rohit Sharma is cursing out loud, but Cummins has done really well here. Sharma wants a single with the ball on the pitch, and these calls always comes down to if the bowler can cross the batsman first. Cummins does, and because of that Karthik sends Sharma back. What's more? Cummins hits the stumps too. Anyone remember his kick to run an Indian out in the World T20? 75/3
View dismissal KD Karthik run out (McCullum) 18 29 18 2 0 100.00
16.2 from Henriques, Karthik has done a Tendulkar. Think SCG, February 26. Charges down, hits the slower ball to mid-off, Henriques is waiting for the throw at the non-striker's end, thus standing in karthik's way, who tries to run around him. And in these cases, anything that can go wrong does. McCullum's throw hits the stumps direct, and he is not in the crease. Mind you. Henriques's back is to the batsman, and he has no clue where Karthik is running 93/5
View dismissal KA Pollard c †Haddin b Cummins 4 12 9 0 0 44.44
15.5 Pollard is gone. Afraid to say, expectedly so. Nothing pitched up in his half, and sooner than later the edge was going to come. Who would have thought you ever hear that said for a West Indian? Short, well outside off, chest high, he tries to slog it over cow corner, toe-ends it to Haddin 89/4
View dismissal AT Rayudu c Smith b Starc 6 11 6 1 0 100.00
17.6 Rayudu goes too. Tries to slog, mis-hits it over mid-off. Smith runs back, takes it over his shoulder. He never looks like dropping that one 102/7
View dismissal NLTC Perera c Henriques b Starc 2 6 4 0 0 50.00
17.4 short of a length, smashed right down mid-off's throat. Defending champions going out without a win 101/6
Harbhajan Singh* not out 22 10 9 3 1 244.44
View dismissal SL Malinga c †Haddin b Cummins 1 3 4 0 0 25.00
18.6 what a take from Haddin. That's reminiscent of the man whose keeping stance he copies. Ian Healy won't mind taking such a catch himself. Sharp bouncer, following Malinga all the way, kisses the glove, headed towards fine leg, until Haddin dives full length to catch this behind his body. One handed, and that too with his left 104/8
