View dismissal SE Marsh c Doolan b Sheridan 31 34 2 0 91.17
11.1 Sheridan gets a wicket straightaway. It was on a length outside off which holds the line after pitching and Marsh stays on his crease and tries to clear the long-off but it went flat and Doolan runs forward from the ropes and takes a good low catch and brings the end to his innings. 73/2
View dismissal SM Katich* c †Nevill b Cooper 29 19 5 0 152.63

View dismissal MR Marsh b Rimmington 16 27 0 0 59.25

View dismissal AJ Finch* c Hogg b Yasir Arafat 15 12 3 0 125.00
4.2 That's not at all a wicket taking delivery but good thinking as he saw the batsman backing away, that's really a poor attempt from Finch.

View dismissal PM Nevill c Turner b Yasir Arafat 5 15 0 0 33.33
14.6 Nevill walks back with a lose shot! The variations from the Renegades bowler's worked a lot in this track, this was on a length outside off and quite slower too. Nevill gets it straight into the hands of backward point and that's the second wicket for Arafat. 83/6
View dismissal WD Sheridan c SE Marsh b Yasir Arafat 12 14 0 0 85.71
