3.4 Morkel strikes, end of Hopes' innings, he was looking to power that over the off side again, skips down the track, can't middle it, edges it the ball swirls towards mid-off, Holder pedals back beyond the circle and collects that 29/2
    0.5 duck on debut for Michael, he chips this pitched-up delivery straight to Badrinath at cover, Michael wlaks off shaking his head in disappointment, not the best of strokes that to a harmless delivery, he skips down the track and looks to scythe that through off, good catch from Badrinath, another bad start from Brisbane 5/1
    9.3 the conventional legspinner from Ashwin, the batsman has no idea about that, looks to swipe that and the outside edge sends the ball towards gully, Brisbane are down to 61 for 5, the innings has unravelled seriously quickly 61/5
    6.1 calmly collected by Hussey, there's the third wicket for Heat, Jadeja has had a terrible tournament with the ball so far, but this time he strikes first ball, Christian falls cheaply, looking to smash Jadeja straight away, doesn't get to the pitch of the ball, off the bottom of the bat, holes out to long-on 54/3
    6.5 Jadeja's tournament is swiftly improving, his second wicket of the over, a thick edge towards slip, good low catch snapped up by Raina, and Brisbane Heat's batsmen are floundering yet again, a golden duck for Joe Burns, "Brisbane Heat have gone cold," says Ravi Shastri 55/4
    19.6 short slow ball does the job, Hartley was already into his stroke before the ball arrived, had to adjust, and only ends up getting a top-edge which ends as a simple catch to short fine leh 137/7
    12.3 Heat have no clue how to play against the spinners, no magic about the delivery, skidding on, and an inside edge from Sabburg sends the ball onto middle stump, 2 off 14 deliveries for Sabburg, his nightmare innings ends, trying a strange shot, getting forward and then rocking back 66/6
