0.2 and he is gone, pitches this short and moving away with the angle, he stays on the crease and tries to cut that way off the back foot, not able to keep it down nor up as it went flat into the hands of Polly at cover region. 0/1
    7.4 he steps down the track for a lofted hoick, this is on a length and a bit of turn beating the bat and Ludeman does the rest. Hales was way down the track and no chance of making a comeback. 48/3
    5.3 this is a noting delivery and Paine just throws that out, a full toss just around off as he backs away and tries to make room and slash it over the cover region, ends up with a low catch towards the backward point where Dean dives forward and holds it. 41/2
    10.3 Bailey goes too, this was tossed up wide outside off. He comes down the track and reaches for it and lofted it towards the long-off, not enough power to clear the man as he holes out to Richardson there who places underneath to that skier. 64/5
    8.3 another one, that's short of a length delivery and moving in as Gulbis stays on the crease and tries to hook it towards the long leg, this one didn't risen much and ends up gloving it back towards the keeper who holds that sitter without any trouble. 51/4
    not out
    12.3 that's been a superb delivery from Tait, that's a yorker on the off stump as Sammy walks down track with a cross bat, tries to dab it down with an angled bat, but it was too quick and ball sneaks through and knocks the off stump out. 70/6
    14.2 this time he gets the lbw, this was yorker and right on the stumps, gets a bit of reverse swing as Mennie tries to work it on the leg side but ends up taking low on the pad and umpire raises his finger straight away. 78/7
    16.5 Hurricanes loses another one, this was slower and pitched up around off as Ben ends up chipping it towards the long-on, Richardson comes forward and grabs that jolly. 99/8
