    5.6 outside edge straight to short third man. He has bowled about a million of these in his 370 matches and they've always got the man. Full, tempting, outside off. Everything right for that big hit over the bowler's head, which is what Doolan tries to do. But he's into the shot too early and has to walk off 53/1
    7.2 lbw!. That's off the front of the hand, meant not to spin. Short, however, is loading up the sweep, wanting it to turn away so he has the room to pull the shot off. And when he doesn't he is just stone dead. 62/2
    13.4 straight up! Big skier, big big skier, and who's under it? It's the captain! That's a super catch from Finch and another wicket for Bravo off the slower ball. He lobs it up high above the batsman's eyeline, so McDermott looks for the bash straight down the ground. Only the ball starts to dip, and does so sharply. He ends up not being to the pitch of it. He's through the shot too early as well. All of that combines to make sure the ball goes only as far as mid-off 114/3
    15.4 lack of turn does him in! Good bowling from Nabi, spots Bailey racing down the pitch, and so he fires in a quick delivery outside off. It bounces over the top edge and Ludeman, the wicketkeeper, does the rest 126/4
    18.3 clears the front leg and goes bang straight down the ground but that's gone so very high. Has it gone long? Noooo. Cooper racing in from long-on takes a splendid catch! Has a lot of ground to cover, has to keep his eyes on the ball as well, these are the catches that make the nerves jangle. There's too much work to do, to much time to think about them. But he makes it seem so easily. Good work from Richardson as well, bowling the slower ball to a batsman desperate for a big heave 149/5
    19.6 It's Bravo's 400th wicket in T20s, the first bowler ever to the mark! And he really should get a cold one for Ludeman the wicketkeeper for taking this catch and giving him a five-wicket bag too. The batsman has been deceived by another ball - pitched up and well wide of his reach outside off. Goes for the slog and ends up hitting it straight up into the stratosphere. If there are astronauts up there, look out! Ludeman runs after it and takes it with a dive somewhere near short midwicket 164/8
    19.1 launches it over midwicket... or tries to, at least. But all he does is pick out Richardson. Slower ball from Bravo again, but the batsman guessed it would be so, walking across to hit over the leg side. The problem is the ball holds up in the breeze and becomes an easy catch 153/6
    19.4 slogs it out to deep midwicket. That's Bravo's fourth wicket, and all of them are off slower balls. Boyce has to drag it from outside off, and he's into the shot too early, miscues it straight to Nabi 158/7

    0.2 that's gone hiiiiiiiigghhhhhhh and it's very well taken by Wade! Excellent bowling from Rose, to bowl slower through the air after being smashed. He keeps it wide as well, meaning Finch going for a slog sweep is trying to drag the ball across the line. Top edge results and Wade rushes forward to take the catch and sprawls in the middle of the pitch. 4/1
    13.2 hoicks a length delivery straight down to deep square leg. That's Archer's first wicket of the Big Bash. And Harris goes soon after getting his fifty. You'd think he's done enough though, with the required rate barely over 7. 117/2

    13.6 double-wicket over! Pace again, this is at 146 kph, it's short, it's not giving him much room. Cooper goes for the slog over midwicket but only ends up nicking off 117/3
