    3.4 What a catch by Pietersen! Narine hangs back and launches a back foot drive miles up in the air over mid off, Pietersen had to run 30m back from the circle and with arms at full stretch he took a brilliant catch. What a start to this match 38/1
    8.1 chopped on! This was well wide of off, a slightly off speed cutter, Finch tries to loft over mid off and it ricochets off the inside edge back onto the stumps! Big blow that for the Renegades 65/3
    7.2 brilliant wrong un brings about the stumping! Well bowled. Harris jumped early down the track and was nowhere near the pitch, it spun and bounced past the flashing blade, he missed it by a long way in truth and the keeper Harper completed the easy stumping. 63/2

    14.4 Bowled him! Wright advances early and Hogg slides it thru shorter and quicker, it slides thru under the bat and crashes into off stump. 115/5
    2.2 Got him! Caught at mid off! This is a length ball outside off, Pietersen tried to loft this inside out off over mid off, but a bit of extra bounce caused a miscue and it balloons to Finch on the circle. Huge wicket! 18/2
    6.3 Chopped on! This was shorter outside off, might have slid on a fraction with a bit of water on the pitch, Hussey shaped to cut, chopped it off the inside edge onto off stump! That's a big wicket. 52/3
    13.2 caught at long on! This is wide outside off again, Faulkner lofts this down the ground and it goes straight down Finch's throat at long off! 109/4

    14.6 Plumb LBW! Harper shuffles across his stumps to a very full leg break, it straightens down the line, harper misses trying to work into the on side, he's hit flush on the shin in front of middle. Not a tough decision to make. 117/6
    16.1 Run out! This was tucked off the hip from Stoinis towards the square leg umpire, they took one and Zampa wanted two, Stoinis sent him back, he slipped the throw came in and Nevill got the bails off before Zampa could get back. 133/7
    16.4 Another run out! They ended up at the same end! This was swept from outside off to deep backward square, Harris misfielded it, Stoinis initially called no, but saw the misfield and changed his mind and ran. Hilfenhaus had already turned back. They ended up at the same end. Hilfenhaus walked off. 137/8
    16.6 A third run out! This was cracked back over the bowler's head to long off, Stevenson comes in off the rope as they try and pinch, the throw is a missile to the the keeper at the striker's end and it beats Boland by inches. That is a superb bit of work from Stevenson. 139/9
