    11.2 there's the wicket and it's the pressure that has had a telling effect. Second wicket for Nair. Looked to play a reverse sweep over short third man but ended up hitting it straight to the fielder. As easy as they come. 96/3
    1.4 shouldn't have been on strike originally, but the boundary meant he was, and now has to make the long walk back. Drama! Gets this length ball to nip back in, Weatherald walks across to work this behind square, misses and is struck plumb in front of middle and leg 10/1
    9.5 sees the batsman winding up to heave to the leg side to slips this short and wide, he chased at that and got a bottom-edge on a pull as Buttler takes an excellent catch. Would've been called wide if he wouldn't have got any bat on that. 89/2
    13.3 looks to play the slog sweep but this was nicely tossed up and angled wide, ends up slicing this to short third man. Excellent from Nair, who had the awareness of bowling this just a touch wide and out of the batsman's reach 111/4
    18.1 full and swinging away, slashes this low full toss to deep point, the throw to the striker's end is a very accurate one and the keeper doesn't have to do much as he takes the bails off without much fuss. 141/5
    19.5 another full toss, this one's surely got to be over the waist? Square leg umpire finally wakes up to check. This was swung away towards deep square off the middle of the bat, the man around deep square came around, held his balance and composure to hold on to it. As we're told now, the third umpire was called-in to check if the fielder was touching the ropes as he caught the ball. Lehmann didn't clear the ropes because he got this really high on the bat. 162/6

    2.5 typical Buttler scoop but this was a slower delivery, so didn't have the pace to work with and Stanlake takes a dolly at short fine leg. 17/1
    12.3 whips this straight to Siddle, who takes it on the second attempt at midwicket. Timed his jump superbly. He played this a strong bottom hand, this was travelling. Patterson hit that well, and a couple of inches above and it would've been four 83/5
    7.1 doesn't get hold of this slog sweep and this is a dolly to deep midwicket. Watson had decided he'll play the slog sweep even as the bowler ran in, got this too high on the bat. 46/2
    10.1 induces the edge on the drive and Carey with a smart grab. Rashid tossed this up, encouraged him to hit through the line but there was just a hint of turn to snuff him out. Rashid's first wicket in BBL, and I'm pretty sure it won't be his last. 69/3
    10.3 the wrong'un has done the trick. Rips one away from length, Rohrer made the mistake of playing from the crease and looking to work this to the leg side but played down the wrong line as he watched this spin away to hit top of off. Wow, this is magnificent 69/4

    13.2 short of length on off, he looks to work this off his hip but gets a leading edge that has been pouched quite comfortably at cover point 87/6
    13.4 plumb! As far as decisions go, it can't get easier. This full delivery tailed in late from outside off to strike him on the boot. Green knew straightway that he was a dead duck 88/7
    13.5 the slower delivery has done the trick and he's on a hat-trick. This is full and outside off, he looks to turn this to the leg side but ends up chipping it up towards short cover. 88/8
    16.1 looks to go over mid-off but ends up getting a thick edge straight into the keeper's gloves. 107/9
    17.4 looks to muscle this over long-on, but ends up slicing this straight to point where Ingram takes a dolly. Strikers open their account with a dominant win at home. 110/10
