  Titans innings (20 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal JA Rudolph c Lumb b Hazlewood 1 3 5 0 0 20.00
0.6 Rudolph is off. This is dug in short again, he gets room to swing his arms, but gets under the cut, and it flies off the outer half to the left of third man where Michael Lumb takes a safe catch 2/1
H Davids not out 59 84 44 3 3 134.09
View dismissal HG Kuhn b Starc 13 12 15 3 0 86.66
3.6 top of off. Proverbial. This is short of a length, and this time it skids through a little. Kuhn tries the swivel-pull but it sneaks under the bat to kiss the timber. Starc extends his lead at top of wickets chart 22/2
View dismissal M van Jaarsveld* c Cummins b Starc 5 8 4 1 0 125.00
5.3 this seems to have stopped at van Jaarsveld. He thinks this is a length ball that he can drive at, he is early into the shot and all he manages is a lob to short cover 36/3
View dismissal F Behardien c McCullum b Cummins 14 29 21 0 0 66.66
12.4 short cover is there for just this. Wide length ball, doesn't quite come on, Behardien drives in front of his body, and uppishly. McCullum takes a sharp catch to his right. He hardly has reaction time here 79/4
View dismissal RE van der Merwe c †Haddin b Henriques 1 4 3 0 0 33.33
13.3 No heroics from RVDM tonight. Jumps out of the crease, Henriques dgs this in, and this loopy bounces is already on its way down when van der Merwe slashes. He duly gets a bottom edge for Haddin to accept 82/5

View dismissal SNJ O'Keefe b Links 32 34 21 6 0 152.38
8.2 Eden keeps Titans alive. O'Keefe slogs all around a straight length ball. He misses it by a long way, and his stumps are a shambles 85/2
View dismissal MJ Lumb c van Jaarsveld b Thomas 33 20 19 6 1 173.68
4.5 slower ball. Titans arrest the slide. Thomas is their man. Slower ball surprises him completely, and he is early into this drive, lobbing it towards cover. This match has ebbed and flowed nicely 54/1
View dismissal NJ Maddinson run out (†Kuhn/van der Merwe) 20 21 15 2 1 133.33
9.6 from van der Merwe, Sixers are disintegrating. Titans are there to accept the chances. Steve Smith has just come in, and initiates what looks like a suicidal single. Maddinson has just dropped this at his feet, and is not even thinking of leaving his crease, but when he looks up he sees Smith charging at him like a train. Not sure why Maddinson has sacrificed himself here. He was the man in, never mind that SS is an international 92/4
View dismissal BJ Haddin*† c Links b van der Merwe 3 6 5 0 0 60.00
9.5 Titans are back. What a match. Swinging this way and that like a drunkard. Haddin, a stylish hitter down the ground, tries a slog sweep here, with three men back on the on side, and top-edges this to deep midwicket. Boy, are the Titans pumped? And boy, has the crowd refound its voice? 92/3
View dismissal SPD Smith run out (†Kuhn/Links) 3 11 6 0 0 50.00
12.3 from Links, Henriques has done to Smith what Smith did to Maddinson. This is a crazy match. Again Smith has not put enough distance between the ball and keeper Kuhn, and he is also on the back foot. Henriques, though, calls him through for a non-existent single, and makes sure he runs past Smith. No sacrifice needed in such scenarios. Wonder what Smith and Maddinson will discuss in the dugout 113/5
View dismissal MC Henriques c Links b Mbhalati 28 24 18 1 2 155.55
15.6 Henriques is trying to finish this game off in this over, and this time the mis-hit pull goes to hand. He is shimmying down the track when Mbhalati slips in a short delivery that cramps him up. Henriques goes ahead with the pull, and top edges it high towards long-on. This game is still on. To use Andrew Miller's words, it is twisting and turning like an insomniac in a mosquito pit 132/6
View dismissal BJ Rohrer c van der Merwe b de Villiers 21 33 24 1 0 87.50
19.2 Cause an eruption is what it will do. Rohrer gets a length ball on off with mid-off up, and he sees the opportunity to close the game here. He is slightly early into the shot, and hits it straight to van der Merwe at mid-off who takes this lowish catch with fingers pointing up 158/8
View dismissal NL McCullum lbw b Thomas 0 2 1 0 0 0.00
16.1 and Thomas has stuck with the first ball back. This is a slower grubber and McCullum is a sitting duck. A golden one at that. Doesn't pick the change of pace, but that's not even half the story. The ball hardly leaves the ground and hits his shin smack in front. Not much you can do with that 132/7
