    0.5 Ludeman tries to sweep this time, the ball gets high on the bat just as he loses grip, and the ball lobs to forward square leg where Ben Laughlin dives to take a good catch. The bat flew to short fine leg and just as well it didn't hit a fielder 4/1

    2.5 and the gamble doesn't pay off as Gulbis hits a good length on middle stump which Pollard tries to whip into the leg side but we see flashing red lights instead 20/2

    10.3 well flighted and Paine decides this one needs to clear the ropes but he doesn't quite get it and Neser takes a simple catch at long off 63/3
    2 Blizzard tries to tee Tait up over long on but only succeeds in top edging the ball high into the air and Ferguson gets under it to take the catch at cover point 10/1
    8.5 great piece of bowling from Boyce as he tosses it up, entices Ponting to hit over cover, it takes the outside edge and lands into the safe hands of Botha at point. Big breakthrough for the Strikers! 56/2
    10.5 Birt tries to take on Boyce but it's the wrong'un and it takes the outside half of the bat, flies high over extra cover, where Kane Richardson dashes around the boundary and takes an absolute speculator on the fence. One handed and all 63/4
    14 Shah backs away to leg and Richardson accepts the invitation to clean the poles out. Richardson is pretty pumped up here and why shouldn't he be!? 85/5
    15 Neser delivers the ball in the slot, Bailey hits it out to the boundary at mid wicket but Kieron Pollard is there to take the catch and the Hurricanes are limping towards a defeat here 93/6
    15.5 tossed up wide outsie off stump, Styris looks to square drive, the ball takes a fine edge and Ludeman holds onto the catch behind the stumps 94/7
    16.3 Gulbis is busy moving around the crease and Richardson keeps it simple by striking the off stump. Eight down and the Strikers are smiling 101/8
