Jackson Bird402917.25133100
2.5 to AD Hales, Danger man back in the hut! Touch fuller delivery outside off, induces the drive and a regulation edge to first slip. 21/1
Lasith Malinga40822.00160000
7.2 to NJ Reardon, You beauty! Unplayable. Full in-swinging yorker and bang! Reardon on the front foot had no clue what was coming and Malinga greets him with a toe crushing yorker. 41/4
18.3 to JM Holland, expected yorker! Fuller on middle and off, Holland makes room and misses it completely as the ball cannon onto the stumps. 81/8
James Faulkner41932.25170010
5.2 to TP Ludeman, touch fuller on off stump, makes room for the extravagant drive as he sliced straight to the point fielder. 37/2
5.3 to PJ Hughes, extras bounce has done the trick here!! Back of a length delivery on off and Hughes nicks one back to the keeper. Wickets tumbling down.. 37/3
17.5 to M Klinger, length delivery down the leg and pulled straight into the throat of Bird who dives forward and takes a lovely catch.. 81/7
Luke Wright201115.5061010
8.6 to Shakib Al Hasan, this is disaster. Advances down the track and sliced a fuller delivery straight to Faulkner at backward point region. Whats happening to Star!. 45/5
John Hastings401804.50152010
James Muirhead201115.5060100
12.4 to MG Neser, Gone for all money. Saw him coming and bowled touch wide, Neser on the charge failed to get to the pitch of the ball as it spun past him and Wade whips the zing bails off the grove.. 57/6
