Fall of wickets: 1-1 (Alex Hales, 0.4 ov), 2-27 (Tim Paine, 3.4 ov), 3-31 (George Bailey, 5.1 ov), 4-121 (Ben Dunk, 15.3 ov), 5-143 (Jonathan Wells, 17.6 ov)
0.4 to AD Hales, full and wide outside the off stump, goes after it and gets an edge to the keeper.. 1/1
3.4 to TD Paine, Paine holes out to a delivery which would have been put away for a boundary, back of a length angling down leg. He stays on the back foot and tries for a hook, ends up edging it back to the keeper, who dives to left and holds it.. 27/2
5.1 to GJ Bailey, Captain departs now, slightly short on the stumps as he tries for a pull. He didn't get the timing which skies towards mid-on, KP places underneath it and took it. 31/3
17.6 to JW Wells, he keeps the same length and finally it paid off, Wells goes on the back foot and didn't get the distance to his pull, went flat into the hands of Maxwell at deep on the leg side. 143/5
15.3 to BR Dunk, not that short for a pull also quite slower, that was from back of the hand and Dunk unable to read it. He didn't get the elevation which went high in the air towards deep midwicket, Max plucks it without any trouble. 121/4

TOTAL20 Ov (RR: 6.90, 83 Mins)138/9
Fall of wickets: 1-31 (Luke Wright, 3.2 ov), 2-42 (Kevin Pietersen, 5.2 ov), 3-62 (Glenn Maxwell, 7.3 ov), 4-93 (David Hussey, 12.1 ov), 5-107 (Cameron White, 14.1 ov), 6-115 (Tom Triffitt, 15.6 ov), 7-126 (James Faulkner, 17.4 ov), 8-132 (John Hastings, 18.4 ov), 9-134 (Jackson Bird, 19.2 ov)
14.1 to CL White, Sammy manages to hold that, tossed up delivery on off, comes out and goes for a mighty hoick, didn't reach to the pitch of the delivery and a leading edge went to back of extra cover, Sammy runs back and gets it, not very convincing though. 107/5
3.2 to LJ Wright, back of a length delivery on off, goes back for a hoick, didn't get the elevation which lobs to mid-on, Dunk places under it and pouches it without any trouble.. 31/1
17.4 to JP Faulkner, Faulkner goes too, low full toss angling in from wide of the crease, he goes deep down in the crease for a slog, misses it completely ball crashes the stumps, Stars are almost out of the equation now with that wicket. 126/7
19.2 to JM Bird, Bailey picks up another catch, that's full on the stumps as Bird goes for a big slog, went soaring high as Bailey runs forward from long-on and grabs it.. 134/9
5.2 to KP Pietersen, KP unable to do any big today, that's short and outside off, picks it off the back foot for a pull. He didn't get on the top of the bounce which skies towards mid-on, Dunk runs forward to hold it. 42/2
7.3 to GJ Maxwell, and Maxwell departs too, that's angling down leg as he backs away to the leg side and drives uppishly towards mid-on, unable to keep it down nor enough elevation to clear it over Doherty.. 62/3
15.6 to TIF Triffitt, Triffitt walks back too, that's short on middle as he goes back for a pull, top edges it and went into the safe hands of Bailey at mid-off. 115/6
18.4 to JW Hastings, drags that short once again, Hastings goes back for the pull, didn't get the elevation as Bailey runs sideways from midwicket and holds it, that's fourth for Ben. 132/8
12.1 to DJ Hussey, Hussey comes down the track as he tries for a big slog, that's short and turning from off. He plays against the turn which lobs towards backward point, Sammy runs forward and gets hold of it.. 93/4
