    1.2 length ball pitched wide of off stump as Rudolph flashes at it uppishly, but unfortunately carries at head height to Chris Sabburg at cover point. Great start from the Heat 1/1
    10.4 fuller length, wide of off stump, which Davids tries to sweep, but doesnt get bat on it as he insides edge on the pads and darts to the other end, but is short of his ground 75/3
    9.4 length ball on middle/leg which Davids ends up top-edging. Christian, hovering under it, must have struggled to sight the ball in the grey skies, but is able to hold on to a tough chance. 70/2
    14.3 AB plays this fuller length delivery behind square. Farhaan, who has backed up quite a way, is running to the other end. AB, who sees Farhaan blistering in, makes his way to the other end, but finds himself well short. Needless wicket for Titans, and huge wicket for Brisbane. 107/5
    12.3 fuller delivery and Roelof hoicks this over extra-cover, but does not hit it well enough as he holes out to the fielder stationed near the boundary 90/4
    18.2 full and outside off as Farhaan, looking to hit this behind square on the off side, ends up spooning the delivery to Haurtiz stationed at fine leg 123/8
    15.3 short ball and Wiese is on it right away as he pulls fiercely, but unfortunately, hits it too well as it finds deep midwicket. Wickets starting to fall in a cluster here and Titans losing some of the momentum they had attained earlier 113/6
    17.5 full and wide and Mosehle hits through the line, but unfortunately finds Cutting at long off, it is now seven down for Titans 122/7
    18.3 what is going on here? this is Morne's first ball, and he ends up top-edging an attempted hook straight in the air, which the keeper gets under gleefully for a simple catch. Titans are now 9 down.. 123/9

    18.5 short, slower ball and that is Gale's fourth wicket as Richards tries to pull the delivery, but ends up hitting it straight in the air, with mid on coming in for an easy catch. 123/10

    16.1 The first time Hopes times a ball after a long time, unfortunately, he hits it straight to the man at long off. Big wicket for the Titans as Hopes looked destined to play a captain's knock 84/5
    2.1 and he strikes first ball! Richards spears this on middle/leg, and Burns, looking to clear midwicket, ends up top-edging straight in the air, with Marchant de Lange taking a comfortable catch 7/1
    4.3 short again and straight and this time Forrest glances this, but uppishly, and unfortunately for him, finds Farhaan Behardien at square leg for a simple catch. And with that, Titans now have two 24/2
    4.5 Cutting doesn't last too long out there, as he tries to back away to the leg side to another snorter from de Lange, but ends up spooning towards cover 24/3
    13.1 full length ball and Christian plays all around this, getting his middle peg knocked down. Definitely a wicket against the run of play 68/4
    17.3 full toss slower ball and Lynn can do no better than find Roelof at deep extra-cover. This one could have been drilled anywhere. Wonder how much this will affect the chase? 94/6
    18.1 bowled him! Hartley goes for the mow straight down the ground, and Morne nails the off stump. Some added suspense to this encounter with the wicket falling in the late overs 104/7
    19.1 full toss on middle and Sabburg flicks this to midwicket, immediately setting off for the single. He wants two, however, and that is the fatal mistake as is well short of his ground when the throw from the deep by Roelof reaches Mosehle, the keeper, who whips off the bails, and Hau 115/8
    19.2 short ball and Hauritz, who backs away to try and hit it over the keeper, is unable to get anything on it. He goes for the single though, as his partner is scrambling to make the run, but Gale is short of his ground when the keeper runs down the striker's end 115/9

    19.6 full and on middle and it's all over. De Lange is the hero as he makes a mess of McDermott's stumps. Terrific ball under pressure 119/10
