TOTAL20 Ov (RR: 7.65, 84 Mins)153/7
Fall of wickets: 1-10 (Rob Quiney, 1.6 ov), 2-39 (Matthew Wade, 6.2 ov), 3-80 (George Bailey, 10.4 ov), 4-83 (Cameron White, 11.3 ov), 5-107 (David Hussey, 13.5 ov), 6-120 (Adam Voges, 16.2 ov), 7-143 (James Faulkner, 18.6 ov)
1.6 to RJ Quiney, he spotted the slower ball when he hit the six, this time he doesn't. Bollinger pitches it on the leg stump. Quiney is looking to go leg side again and is early into the shot as he gets a leading edge to mid-off where Edwards takes the catch. 10/1
10.4 to GJ Bailey, fuller ball on the middle stump. Bailey moves across in an attempt to flick it. He misses the line altogether as he is bowled. 80/3
11.3 to CL White, short ball on the off stump. White looks to pull it and is early into his shot. He gets a top edge that is snaffled up by Warner running back from short third-man. He is greeted by boos though as it is White's home ground. Melbourne Stars in a spot of bother now. 83/4
16.2 to AC Voges, fuller ball on the off stump. Voges looks to slog and gets the edge that results in an easy catch to Abbott at long-on. 120/6
6.2 to MS Wade, flighted ball outside the off stump. Wade goes for the sweep shot again. This time he doesn't cover the line of the ball and gets a top edge that is easily taken by Coyte at short fine-leg. 39/2
18.6 to JP Faulkner, more boos as Warner as he takes the catch at long-on. It was fuller on the off stump and Faulkner lofted it straight into the hands of the Thunder captain. He takes the catch and stirs up the crowd by gesturing at them. 143/7

TOTAL19 Ov (RR: 8.10, 82 Mins)154/4
Fall of wickets: 1-6 (Chris Gayle, 0.6 ov), 2-25 (Usman Khawaja, 3.3 ov), 3-69 (Daniel Smith, 9.3 ov), 4-86 (Craig Philipson, 11.3 ov)
0.6 to CH Gayle, and the roar gets higher as Faulkner deceives Gayle with a slower ball. He comes down the track and looks to loft it away. He is beaten by the slower ball. He looks to defend it but the ball is past the bottom edge. He looks back to see the stumps shattered and the fielders are ecstatic. 6/1
11.3 to CA Philipson, short ball on the off stump. Philipson looks to pull it and gets a top edge to Hussey at mid-on. Easy pickings for Hussey these. 86/4
3.3 to UT Khawaja, good length ball outside the off stump and Khwaja is coming down the track as the ball was bowled. He chases the ball and gets a faint outside edge back to the keeper. More joy for the crowd at the G. They are raising up some noise in there. 25/2
9.3 to DLR Smith, short ball outside the off stump. Smith comes down the track and slices the short ball straight into the waiting hands of Adam Voges at sweeper cover. Warner doing the running now. Memories of Hobart, anyone. 69/3
