5.1 Roy misjudges this 113ks cutter and skies a catch to Lehmann running back from extra cover. Dangled up outside off, Roy does not pick the slower one, he can't manufacture his own pace, and simply slices it up in the air. Jake Lehmann keeps his cool and tracks it down 33/3
    2.4 Stanlake provides the Strikers with the breakthrough. Dug in short and outside off, Hughes connects with a pull but sends it straight down the throat of Wells at long leg 20/1
    3.2 edged and Carey pulls off a belting catch. Good length and nips away outside off, bounces, takes the outside edge. Carey moves late, throws himself to his left, and completes the one-handed catch. Maddinson was just looking to run it down to third man. He did not get enough bat and Carey showed off his stunning reflexes. What a game he's having 24/2
    14.1 Silk ventures outside leg and aims to open up the off side. But Rashid chases the moving batsman with a googly that fizzes off the pitch and tucks 'em up for room. Silk still goes through with the cut only to chop it back onto the stumps. Rashid has his hands aloft and wheels away. I bet this is going to be one of the most enduring images of the BBL 104/5
    8.2 Look at that wrong'un from Rashid. Look at the devilish dip. Look at Rashid having his hands aloft and celebration. This was a poor shot to be honest, though. Billings dares to step down the track and plays all around this googly. It breaks back in to make a mess of the stumps 58/4
    16.6 Head runs back and clings onto this skier. A bit too full and outside off, Botha loses his shape, and splices it in the air. Head runs back from extra cover and snaffles it. Botha has been put out of his misery 127/6
    19.6 Neser hits the base of middle stump with a ripping yorker. Dips late, creeps under the bat, and secures Strikers' six-run win. Great finish from Neser 161/8
    17.2 Stanlake lights up the stumps! Abbott makes swinging room outside leg yet again, Stanlake holds his own. He nails a full ball on middle and sends back Abbott 127/7
