1.5 to NJ Maddinson, and Maddinson goes, it was a back of a length delivery on middle and off and he backs away with an intention to clear the infield but gets it on the toe end of the bat and skies towards cover where Lynn settles underneath it and holds it. 14/1
Cameron Gannon402446.00112020
6.4 to MC Henriques, that's a superlative catch by Cutting. It was back of a length on middle and off, Henriques stays on his crease and tries to hoick to on side, he was a bit early onto it and it skies towards deep midwicket, Cutting runs backward from midwicket and takes a sensational catch, he judges it perfectly.. 51/2
16.6 to JC Silk, as we speak of those one should be on the stumps, Gannon exactly does the same. Yorker length delivery on middle and leg, Silk backs away to make some room but misses it completely and it disturbs the stumps.. 127/6
18.2 to DLR Smith, length delivery outside off and Smith stays on his back foot and slices it over point but holes out at deep. Lynn accepts it near the ropes. 132/7
18.5 to B Lee, and another catch for Lynn at the deep, this time it was Lee who got a length delivery at the toe end of the bat and went flat towards deep point and Lynn obliges it!. 133/8
Daniel Vettori402516.25122100
13.5 to MJ North, and Vettori strikes now, that was tad short and kept low, North gets down on one knee and tries to sweep, top edge towards midwicket and Hopes holds the catch. 104/4
James Hopes402606.5051010
Ben Cutting403027.50102110
12.1 to MJ Lumb, and dangerous Lumb goes! It was on a length which straightens after pitching on middle, Lumb tries to play across the line and gets a leading edge to backward point where hopes took it without any trouble.. 95/3
14.6 to RS Bopara, and Bopara goes this time, back of a length delivery on off and hint of away movement, Bopara comes and tries to steer it to third man but ended up in an genuine edge to the keeper. 115/5

Brett Lee402225.50142021
14.1 to CA Lynn, and Lee strikes with the first ball, it was full down leg and Lynn backs-away a bit but it was quicker enough to beat his bat and struck his back pad which ricochet back into the stumps, that's big break through!. 96/4
14.4 to C Kieswetter, that's a terrific catch by Silk at mid-on. It was a fuller length delivery on off and swings it to the left of mid-on, got at the toe end of the bat and Slik dives to his left and takes a sensational catch on the jump.. 97/5
Josh Hazlewood4043110.7582310
19.6 to BCJ Cutting, and he is gone with the last delivery, he lofts a length delivery straight into the hands of long-off, he looked disappointed, quite a close game!. 136/7
Josh Lalor411814.50132010
5.5 to JA Burns, it was on a length and Burns comes out and clips of the pads which went flat into the hands of deep square leg, two quick wickets for Sixers!. 31/2
Moises Henriques201216.0062000
6.4 to DT Christian, and the skipper walks back with a poor shot. It was a good length delivery well outside off which holds the line and Christian reaches to it with an intention to drive it through cover, but edged it to the keeper. 33/3
