    11.5 finds long-on. Another dragged pull, this one is better connected and carries to the fielder. It was short of a length on middle stump and he was through the shot too early 102/2
    5.5 smashes leg stump! Length ball doesn't quite rise enough for Watson, who has had a big slog at this.The stump is out of the ground, and so is Watson 54/1
    13.3 oh terrible mix-up and we're trying to figure out which batsman is out. It was a short ball across off stump, looks to cut, he's beaten. There's a slight fumble behind. Joe Root wants the run and has run through completely. Ferguson is ball-watching and outside the crease as Root makes it to the other end. The throw goes to the bowler and it is confirmed Ferguson is the one who will leave. He didn't want that run 111/3
    14.2 past the inside edge and into middle stump! Length ball slides in and Root is driving for the turn. Wasn't to the pitch of that and he pays the price with a big gap for the ball to skid through 116/4
    16.4 taken at mid-off! That's a sharp catch from Abbott. Length ball on off stump, clears the front leg and drills this with an open face. Abbot lunges to his left and takes it with a reverse-cup 147/5
    17.1 sensational catch! Phillipe flies to his right and holds on, one-handed! The innings has flipped in three balls. Sams is gone now and this will cost runs. Dwarshius was around the wicket, bowled it short and wide outside off. Sams wanted to play the late cut and get it fine, but the keeper has held on at about one-and-a-half slip 147/7
    16.6 another at mid-off! Full slower ball just outside off, backs away and drills it hard and this time Abbott has to time a jump. And he executes it well. Good technique again on the reverse-cup 147/6
    19.5 slower ball at a length on off stump. Steps out and swings on it. Beaten. And then Phillipe picks it up on the bounce and breaks the stumps with an underarm flick to catch McAndrew short of his crease as he tries to pinch a single 169/8

    2.6 down the pitch but given! Length ball skids through and catches him in front of middle stump as he looks to flick. That didn't rise too much, caught him under the knee with his front leg planted across the stumps. Edwards not happy about the decision, but it's closer than he thinks it is. Replays confirm that was hitting leg 14/2
    1.3 past the outside edge and into off stump! Wants to go inside-out, over mid-off. But he isn't behind the line of it and the stump is exposed as he goes for this. Late movement away off the pitch does him 8/1
    5.4 mid-on pedals backwards and holds on. Henriques deceived by the slower ball. It was lobbed up at leg stump. He wanted to loft it over mid-on, in the last over of the Powerplay. But he was early on it and could only get it high, not far 32/3
    6.6 bowled him! Once again, Hughes is frozen as this approaches him. Just no idea which way the ball is going. This comes in off a length and he's set up for the googly, on the back foot. Past the inside edge and into middle and leg stump 39/5
    6.2 tonks leg stump. Fawad gets a length ball to skid on. Silk is deep in the crease trying to punch and just completely misses this. His reaction suggests he thought this would bounce higher than it did 34/4
    8.6 that is plumb. Slider at a length on middle stump. Phillipe loses his shape as he gets on the back foot to try and flick this. Hits him knee height right in front of leg stump 56/6
    18.6 taken by long-off! Crafty from Green. Full and fast at the start of the over and slow and wide when they needed to hit the sixes. Curran looks to slog sweep as this drifts across him, but he can only slice it high for long-off to take to his left. his highest score, and a quality innings, but that should be the end of Sixers' chances 144/7
    19.3 taken by long-off. Full slower ball outside off, ends up slicing it as he looks to go straight. Callum Ferguson runs in and takes it with a reverse cup 148/8
    19.5 smashes off stump. Yorker at off stump. he backs away and looks to chop it behind point, but that is too good for him 148/9
