    3.2 poor shot from Roy this time. A slower ball from Richardson, full around middle and leg, just a clip straight to midwicket. That's unfortunate, he was looking good. Through the stroke early enough for the wicket 28/2
    1.6 Hughes misses a straight one and off stump is uprooted. Full and straight from Richardson, around off. Richardson looks to whip the ball across the line, looking to hit the ball behind square again. But with the surface area of the bat so little to meet the ball, there is always a chance of missing it. He did. 13/1
    13.2 out off the next ball. The slower ball around middle and leg, Maddison wants to attack the short boundary, whips the ball towards fine leg. Tye runs around to his right and takes a good catch 83/6
    4.6 has it carried? The keeper thinks he has him. The third umpire is called upon, the soft signal is out. Has it bounced? It's short down leg, off the glove as Henriques is hurried on a pull. The keeper dives low to his left, there are those uncertain replays where you never really know. That may or may not have carried, but it's going to be hard to overturn the soft signal. There is no conclusiveness to this, either way. Sticks with the soft signal does the third umpire, can't blame him. I reckon it would have stayed not out if the soft signal was not out, which begs the question if the umpires are unsure, why give a soft signal? 40/3
    5.3 the Sixers are collapsing. It's short, dug in, on off. Billings walks down, looking to work the ball into the leg side, but the ball keeps climbing, takes the shoulder of the bat and lobs to midwicket 41/4
    6.5 131 kph, whew, what a jaffa. Pitches on middle, keeps its angle, keeps going and beats Botha's outside edge. Knocks over off stump. Not much Botha could do about that 46/5
    13.4 seven down now. Two wickets in three balls. A low full toss outside off, Nevill gets a thick inside edge into the stumps. Hits leg stump. Played down the wrong line 84/7
    18.3 117 kph, two wickets in two balls and the Sixers are in risk of not batting out 20. It's a short delivery around middle and leg, O'Keefe gets a thick top edge which flies down to deep square leg 132/9
    18.2 taken at point. A full delivery around off, Abbott swings across the line, looking to heave the ball over midwicket, but the ball skews off the outside half and lobs to point. Easy catch 132/8
    18.4 another hat-trick for Tye! He got one in the IPL earlier this year, he has another in the BBL. Full delivery around middle and leg, Sams is through his flick too early, the ball nips back and hits Sams in front of middle and leg. Probably hitting leg stump. It's Tye's third hat-trick this year. 132/10

    4.5 was always going to happen with his mode of operation. On a length around middle and leg, a wild swing across the line again, not the first of his innings. Gets a thick outside edge which lobs to the keeper. Not relying on timing, but power 31/1
    4.6 two in two. Not very clever batting. Back of a length down leg, Philippe fails to time it, fails to keep it down, fails to get enough on it, and his pull goes straight to deep square leg. Easy as ... Good hard length from Abbott, hustling the batsman through his shot 31/2
    9.3 taken by Maddison at fine leg. Bouncer around middle and leg, tries to hit that for six, but gets a thick leading edge. The fielder at fine leg misjudged it slightly, but runs in and takes a low catch 52/3
    11.5 and out the next ball. Digs it in, short around middle and off, chest height. Cartwright was hurried for pace, mis-times the pull and just hits it back to the bowler, who takes a simple catch 66/4
