    0.3 edged and taken by Turner at slip! Great captaincy to have the slip in. This was a good length, at pace across the right-handed Peirson, he fends away from his body, gets a thick edge that flies low to Turner's right at a wide first slip and he takes a very good catch just above the turf. 2/1
    3.5 holes out at mid on! The big scalp claimed by Richardson. This was a fuller length, McCullum set himself to swing thru the line over long on, he got under it, got it off the toe, it flew high but did not clear Agar on the circle at mid on. 26/3
    2.2 caught at mid off! This was a good length, he tries to loft over mid off but his feet didn't really move and he miscues flat straight to the man on the circle who takes a comfortable catch. Great start by the Scorchers 18/2
    18.2 Picks the man out on the rope! He went again. This was a shorter ball, he cracked it off the middle of the bat to deep midwicket but he hit it flat to the longest part of the ground, Turner holds his ground and his nerve on the rope and takes another very good catch 124/8
    10.2 Outstanding catch from Agar running back from mid on! This was another slower ball banged in, he advances and tries to flat bat again, gets a decent piece of it but doesn't nail it, it flies towards the long on rope, Agar turns and runs back with the flight from the circle, catches it at full tilt and then pulls up just short of the rope! Incredible speed to pull that off 69/4
    12.3 Superb catch from Klinger running back from midwicket! This was a short ball angled across Reardon, he pulls it but it comes off the toe and flies over midwicket's head, Klinger turns and runs back from the circle and catches it on the run going with the flight. The Scorchers have caught well. 85/5
    15.5 Caught at midwicket by Turner! Great catch. Another short ball, Cutting nails the pull shot but he hits it down, not up, at it flies straight to Turner on the circle who has a beautiful pair of hands and he calmly pouches it just about the turf. 107/6
    18 edged behind! Great bowling. Another slower ball that completely deceives Wildermuth, he swings hard but gets a thin outside edge and it floats through to Bancroft for a simple catch 118/7
    19.2 Tye takes a hat trick! Bowls him! Another slower ball knuckle ball, he swings hard but misses and it crashes into off stump! What a way to finish for the Scorchers! 129/10
    19.1 Bresnan takes the catch running back from backward point! Another good slower ball, he swings hard and slices it up over backward point, Bresnan runs back from the circle and takes a good catch 129/9
