View dismissal M Klinger c Borgas b Nannes 60 46 5 0 130.43

View dismissal NJ Reardon c Coyte b Tremain 42 20 0 5 210.00
16.5 shot and what a ripper of a catch! team-work at its best, it seemed like going all the way but the fielder at long-on pedals backward and gets both his hands on it, the momentum is taking him outside, so he throws it back and the fielder from long-off takes it with ease! 148/2
View dismissal KA Pollard c Gayle b Nannes 16 7 2 1 228.57
19.4 length ball and outside the off, he goes to slam it over the straight field but mistimes it and it goes high in the air, Gayle from the covers rushes in and takes a simple catch 176/5

17.6 short of length and hit straight to long-on! second wicket of the over this, Borgas takes a good low catch at long-on as Theo tries to back away and hit it over the top, it is too quick for him and goes to the fielder 154/4

  Sydney Thunder innings (target: 178 runs from 20 overs) R B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal MJ Cosgrove c Botha b Tait 8 7 0 1 114.28
2.2 length ball on the off stump and he went for a drive at that pace, goes straight to the mid-off fielder, caught! did not middle that one at all and the Thunder have now lost their first 13/1
View dismissal CH Gayle c Botha b Pollard 8 19 0 0 42.10
7.3 Gayle gone, caught at deep mid-wicket! Pollard is a happy, happy man, to have gotten his West Indian teammate out, it was shorter, slower and Gayle went for a pull, but got no timing on it, straight to the fielder kept there for this very stroke and Thunder are three down now! 40/3
View dismissal Azhar Mahmood lbw b Tait 1 7 0 0 14.28
4.1 that is plumb as it can get and given! That was straight and really rapid, Mahmood got himself into a very awkward position trying to play it across the line, misses the ball by a mile and once it had thudded into his pads, it was always going to be lbw. Umpire thinks for a second on the height and then gives it 16/2
View dismissal CJL Rogers* b Boyce 23 21 2 0 109.52
11.2 gone, bowled off a wrong 'un! he was going down the track and wanted to play it through the leg side but he misreads it, was a wrong 'un and not the conventional leggie, beats the outside edge and hits the stumps...half the side's gone 63/5
View dismissal SA Abbott c Botha b Boyce 14 8 2 0 175.00
9.2 fuller and chipped to short cover! it was not as short as the previous one, length ball at best and the ball seemed to stop on the batsman, who was trying to push it through the covers, it spoons up to give the fielder one of the simplest catches you would see, four down now Thunder 56/4
View dismissal CJ Borgas run out (Ferguson/†Ludeman) 4 6 0 0 66.66
11.4 Boyce to Carters, gone, run-out! slower and pushes it to the off side, wants to go for a quick one, the non-striker responds immediately but cannot beat the throw from the cover fielder, Ferguson who was rushing forward, he makes a sliding throw to the keeper 64/6
View dismissal RGL Carters c Putland b Tait 24 21 1 1 114.28
17.5 fullish on the off stump and he has hit it straight to the long-on fielder! well taken too, Putland had to move to his right and does well to get it low 123/9
View dismissal SJ Coyte b Richardson 33 15 3 2 220.00
16.3 bowled him! it was full, straight and fast, the batsman was giving himself room but got nowhere close to getting his bat to that one and it sneaks through to hit the stumps...perfect yorker with perfect results 115/7
View dismissal CP Tremain b Richardson 0 1 0 0 0.00
16.4 bowled him first ball! not quite a yorker but it was quick, and it was straight and the new batsman misses it completely while defending on the front foot, hits the off stump to get his second wicket in as many deliveries 115/8
View dismissal A Zampa c Klinger b Richardson 3 7 0 0 42.85
18.4 fuller and on the off, and he has hit it straight up and it goes straight down to the long-on fielder, that is the end of that then 126/10
