Johan Botha4047011.7573320
Kane Richardson412917.2593020
1.3 to SM Katich, and Katich falls cheaply, that was on a length which pitches outside leg and shapes away from Katich with the angle, he backs away to leg and tries to make some room to get it over cover, misses it and it crashes the stumps.. 10/1
Michael Neser3044014.6646200
Shaun Tait4041310.2562230
15.1 to AC Voges, and finally Tait gets a wicket, back of a length delivery down leg and Voges edges it back to the keeper who dives to his left and holds it nicely!. 161/5
15.4 to HWR Cartwright, another one for Tait, short of a length on off and Cartwright waits on his crease and tries to slice it towards third man but ended up getting it straight into the hands of Neser.. 163/6
17.1 to PJ Cummins, Tait took the pace off and a length delivery on middle stump, Cummins was early onto it and chips it straight into the hands of Botha at mid-off. 172/7
Jon Holland403428.5061200
9.5 to SM Whiteman, and no point of playing such a shot when you're getting everything from the mid of the bat. That was touch short which spins in with good bounce and Whiteman reverse sweeps it but only manage to find backward point, much needed wicket for the Strikers.. 113/2
11.6 to CJ Simmons, and a stunning innings comes to an end, that was touch short on middle and leg, Simmons shuffle across a bit and tries to clear the man at deep fine leg, didn't get it nicely and holes out to Hales there, take a bow Simmons!. 142/3

Pat Cummins4040110.00123311
18.5 to NJ Reardon, short of a length delivery on middle and leg, Reardon backs away and tries to get it over midwicket but he skies it towards long-on, Cartwright runs back from mid-on and takes a good catch running back!. 181/6
Jason Behrendorff4041110.2584210
13.5 to PJ Hughes, and that's a big wicket! Hughes falls to a back of a length delivery which was quite slower than the previous one and he comes out of the crease and tries to loft it over midwicket but ended up getting it high towards long-on where Hogg runs forward and grabs a nice catch.. 125/3
Brad Hogg402315.7580100
17.2 to J Botha, and Hogg comes back powerfully! It was a full and quicker on middle and off which kept a bit low. Botha gets down on one knee for a slog sweep, misses the line and it crashes the stumps, Hogg is pumped up!. 168/5
Yasir Arafat4043110.7584300
7.4 to AD Hales, yorker length delivery on middle and leg, he tries play across the line which went a bit faster than expected by Hales and stuck on his front toe and rolls back and hit the off stumps, that's real good stuff from Arafat.. 68/1
Mitchell Marsh2030015.0012210
Ashton Turner201919.5021100
15.4 to TM Head, this time he has to depart, quicker and a flatter delivery on middle stump. Head comes down the track with an intention to loft it over midwicket, leading edge went towards short third man and been holes out into the safe hands of Arafat.. 141/4
