1.4 it comes back in off the pitch and Barr ends up playing back to it. Its goes through the gap between the bat and pad, knocks over the bails and the Lightning gets the breakthrough. 9/1
    32.5 peach of a delivery from Chase. Allen stays on the back foot and looks to defend the ball again. Too much pace from Chase and Allen's off-stump gets knocked out of the ground. 69/5
    13.1 Gillespie is onto the front foot and looks to drive the ball, gets the smallest of edges and Tucker takes the catch behind the stumps. Not sure he needed to play at that ball, yet off he must go... 41/2
    23 chops on! O'Brien doesn't move his feet and looks to play out at a wide ball, takes the inside edge and the ball is chopped onto the stumps. O'Brien looks up at the sky as Kane runs off and celebrates 62/3
    29.4 Rankin goes back in the crease and looks to defend. The ball spins past the bat and the bails come off. 16 ball duck there from Rankin, not one that will stick long in the memory. 69/4
    36.2 Stuart decides that the time is right to shoulder arms, not the greatest of decisions. The ball come back in off the pitch and his stumps are knocked over. Warriors collasping in a heap here 70/7

    38.4 there's another one for Chase! Thompson goes back in the crease and pulls the bat out of the way. The ball just kisses the top of the off bail and Thompson just stands there looking at the pitch. No answers there I'm afraid and off he must go. 79/8
    41.5 lots more bounce from Dockrell, Scanlon gets hit on the handle and the ball flies towards slip. Anderson leaps up and takes a one-handed catch above his head. Scanlon looks down at the pitch and then trudges off. 87/9

    18.1 another one goes down! Scanlon gets the ball to come back in off the pitch and Balbirnie gets hit in front of the stumps. One day you score a double century, the next its a duck. Guess that's how it goes. 36/3

    55.3 Well he isn't going to hear the end of this for a while! Stays deep in the crease and looks to cut the ball, gets a little nick and his brother takes the catch behind the stumps. Hold the ball up in the air, just in case anyone missed it. 185/8
    33.5 you kind of knew that it was going to end that way. Its outside off-stump and Tucker gets a little nick through to the keeper. Thompson finally gets his reward 100/6
    41.1 its a full ball and Dockrell leans forward to clip the ball into the legside. Misses and is hit in front of the stump, Thompson barely turns to appeal as he runs off to celebrate. Must have been watching Broad too much! 132/7
    81 Chase gets a thick edge on the ball and it goes down towards gully, Richardson calls for the quick single. Its a terrible call as the throw comes in and O'Brien takes off the bails. Yet it was Richardson that called for the ru. 274/9
