    2.4 The extra pace and bounce of Johnson does Paine in. Sam Whiteman runs forward and across to his left and settles under this skier. Dug in short and outside off, bursts off the surface, 144ks. Paine can't control a pull and top-edges it into the night sky. It drops down into the gloves of Whiteman. Early lift for Johnson and Scorchers 14/1
    9.3 full and Bresnan rolls his fingers across this offcutter. Short swings early, hurls his bat at the ball and ends up playing on. Drags a thick inside edge back onto the stumps 62/3
    5 Johnson bounces McDermott out now. Chest-high short ball on off stump, cramps 'em up for room and gets big. McDermott aims to pull, gets a fat top edge, Tye snaps this skier up at long leg. Simple catch. Excellent stuff from Johnson: 3-0-12-2 so far. He roars and celebrates the wicket 31/2
    10.2 What a relay catch! Turner runs to his right from long-off, pouches the ball with both hands. But the momentum carries him over the ropes at the straight boundary. He is wary of it and hence tosses it back into the field of play, looking at Bresnan running in to his left from long-on. Bresnan now hangs onto the chest-high chance. Was Turner's foot in contact with the rope while he was collecting the ball? The replays aren't conclusive enough, I suppose. Quite difficult to judge from this. Bailey waits; he isn't going anywhere. But, Mealey, the TV umpire, rules Bailey out. Excellent awareness from the two fielders, nevertheless. Bailey runs down the track, attempts a loft and falls. The ball dipped creating some distance between the bat and the pitch. 64/4
    11.3 Christian backs away outside leg in order to open up the off side. This one bounces up more than he expected. Lines up for an inside-out loft. Holes out to wide long-off 69/5

    14.3 Bresnan calls for the catch, and takes it. 113ks, almost 20ks slower than the previous ball, Bresnan stretches his left hand out, gesturing cover to stay away from him. Leg-cutting full-toss just outside off, dips late as Webster makes a mess of the leg-side slog. Toe-ends a return catch 88/6

    1.2 Rose pulls off a ripping one-handed catch. Nice reflexes, sticks his right hand out from his followthrough, and plucks it out. Hurricanes need more of these moments if they are to stay alive. Whiteman dashes down the track, and meets a half-volley. He belts it back to the bowler with some force. It was destined to fly away to the boundary.... until the bowler stretched his right hand out 12/1
    10.5 Reed at short fine leg takes a good overhead catch. Tossed-up legbreak with extra bounce, foils Klinger's attempt to sweep the ball. He has to settle with a top-edge to short fine leg 94/2
    12 edged and Paine dives across to his left to take it. Nice and full outside off, Marsh's front foot falls away to the leg side as he throws his bat at a big drive and nicks it behind for 57 off 34 balls 99/3
