    0.4 that's a big wicket and has been brought about because of his pace. Banged in short outside off, Kallis arches back to glide it over point, but the ball flies low to Wells who takes a good catch at backward point. Dream start for the Hurricanes in front of a festive New Year's Day crowd 1/1
    7.3 as easy as they come. Short, enough width to play the slash, he goes too hard at it, but only manages a thick edge that flies to the third man fielder who takes it well. Had to run in a couple of metres from the ropes and he took it quite comfortably. Blizzard was just starting to settle in 63/3
    1 that is a delightful delivery, sheer pace and Watson's gone! Full and angling in from wide of the crease, the ball dips away late, Watson looks to play that down the ground but plays inside the line of the ball as the thin edge flies through to Tim Paine. Watto was disappointed with the decision, not sure why. There was a definite edge there. 1/2
    17.1 another one bites the dust. This one was floated full, was slanting across as well, Hussey went for an almighty slog across the line, only managed a top edge that was swirling for a long, long time. The fielder at deep square leg ran around the ropes, realised it was getting away, but quickly adjusted to pull off a good low catch. Is there another twist? 137/6
    14.5 gets the elevation but not the distance as Dan Christian runs to his right from long-on and takes a good running catch. Is that the wicket that applies the choke even more? Rohrer was just getting increasingly frustrated, looked to hit that straight as a dye but dragged it a bit and the catch was taken quite cleanly. Wasn't all that easy but Christian made it look that way 113/4
    16.3 steps out but can't get to the pitch, and the fielder running in from deep cover dives forward to take a good, low catch. It was dying on him but he was clear, at no stage did he look like backing off and Wells holds on to it finally. Russell's threat ends, but has it come a little too late for the Hurricanes? 132/5
    17.3 what is happening here? The Hurricanes can do no wrong suddenly. It was full, he looks to back away and go over cover, only manages to get a thick edge as Paine dives full length to his right to pouch that off like a goal keeper. Green is gone! 138/8
    17.2 driven wide of long-on but some poor running between the wickets coupled with an outstanding piece of fielding by Christian has resulted in another wicket. It was a flat-batted pull, Christian was off the blocks immediately, got to the ball and fired a rocket throw, even the dive couldn't save him. 138/7

    18.4 got him this time with a beauty! Float it full and a touch ahead of good length on middle, Sandhu swings but can't connect as the ball cannons into the stumps. 145/9
