1.3 to SPD Smith, edged and Seifert marks his return with a sharp catch! Rears up from a back of a length and veers away outside off. The biiiiig extra bounce messes with Smith's cut. He can only snick it behind to the keeper. Almost unplayable. "Outstanding delivery, a bit of a steep bounce," says Seifert. 16/1
5.6 to MW Short, Another chance, Seifert hangs onto this skier! Relief for Sears. Possibly a slower variation from Sears, Short aims to thump it over the leg side but only skews it in the air. Seifert runs in but the ball keeps swirling away from him. He dives and clings onto the ball. 67/2
9.1 to TM Head, Caught by Sodhi at short third. Santner goes wider and hides this one away from Head's swinging arc. He aims to drag a slog-sweep over midwicket, but ends up top-edging it to short third. Santner strikes in his 100th T20I. 99/4
8.3 to GJ Maxwell, Maiden T20I wicket for Clarkson and it's a big one! Offcutter into the pitch on middle and leg, Maxwell shovels it in the air but does not middle it. He skies it to Young at deep backward square leg. Special moment for Clarkson, with his former room-mate taking the catch in the deep for his first wicket in this format. 95/3

Fall of wickets: 1-19 (Will Young, 1.4 ov), 2-29 (Tim Seifert, 2.5 ov), 3-51 (Finn Allen, 5.1 ov)
1.4 to WA Young, Caught by Zampa at short third. Pushed across off from round the stumps, Young gives Short the charge, but Short drags it short and bowls into the pitch. Skewed to Zampa. 19/1
2.5 to TL Seifert, Caught at mid-off! Smart catch from Inglis. Back of a length and outside off, rears up, vicious delivery from Johnson. Bowled at 142kph. Seifert can't get on top of the bounce. He weakly splices it to mid-off. 29/2
5.1 to FH Allen, taken by Starc at point! He kept his eyes on the ball, which was looped up, and took the catch even while moving and sliding to his right. Short of a length, and outside off from Zampa, as Allen went swiping at this one but got a top edge. I think there must have been some extra bounce off the pitch for Zampa off this one. 51/3
