    1.1 how's that for a first ball! Pitched up very full on middle, Philippe goes well across his stumps to flick behind square and is late on the shot, struck dead in front and that's ripping out leg stump. Straightforward decision. 1/2
    0.5 short of a length outside off, tried to chop this through cover, but instead a bottom edge dribbles into silly mid-off. Hughes takes off for a run but Philippe recognizes how ludicrous that is with Morris charging down the wicket in his follow-through. The big South African kicks the ball into the stumps from four yards with Hughes unable to get back in, a yard out. 1/1
    4.1 full and swinging into middle, Vince chips this in the air to mid-off, taken on the knees. Vince wasn't trying to flick this in the air. Wanted to whip it through midwicket but the ball looked like it held back a touch and sailed to the man on the ring. 9/4
    2.3 another early blow! In the channel on fourth stump on a good length, still not much footwork from Henriques prodding away from his body and quite a bit of extra bounce sees this climb off the shoulder of the bat through to the keeper Lenton diving to his right to take this low in front of slip. Would not have carried to slip. 6/3
    5.1 short and some width on fifth stump, it was there to hit but just climbs a touch and his attempted picks out Khawaja at backward point. He wanted to go squarer but now Sixers are in deep trouble. 15/5
    14.5 length ball on off, carves this drive straight to Ferguson at chest height on the ring at extra cover. Takes the catch crouching down tumbling right, palms out with fingers pointed to the sky. 72/8
    7.5 this is going from bad to worse for the Sixers. Full and driven to McAndrew's right at midwicket, Avendano sets off and Curran wasn't interested after a spectacular diving stop. He gets up from his knees and calmly tosses to the keeper with both batsmen at the same end. Curran actually strayed out of the crease momentarily and Avendano passed him so he's the one who has to go. 26/6
    14.3 length ball on fourth stump, tries to heave this high and deep again over the sightscreen, gets the height but doesn't get the distance. Hales steadies himself running across from long-on 20 meters and takes this hopping on his right leg just inside the rope. 71/7

    15.2 another slower ball at 121 kph lands full on sixth stump, tries to slog this straight but winds up skying it over long-off, fielder runs in 20 yards and settles himself approaching the ring to take this catch with ease at head height. 73/9
    15.5 length ball on sixth stump skied over cover, the sweeper relays in over the non-striker's stumps on one bounce to Morris, who takes this cleanly and whips the bails off with O'Keefe three yards short of completing the second. Sixers bowled out for 76 with a ball left unused. 76/10

    3.4 fullish length on fifth stump, encourages the drive and plenty of movement creates the edge carrying to first slip at waist height. Simple catch for Hughes. Khawaja's footwork wasn't really there. 21/2
    0.4 back of a length ball on middle and off, goes to flick this through midwicket but some extra bounce sees this balloon off a leading edge, Silk with a spectacular effort charging in from cover before diving forward to claim this inches from the ground. He didn't have much time but covered the distance very well by reading it perfectly off the bat with good first step. 1/1
