6.6 to MJ Lumb, absolutely sensational take! What a catch that was. Alex Ross, take a bow. Full-length dive, feet parallel to the ground and he holds on to a blinder. Full and wide, Lumb goes for the lofted drive towards cover but holes out. Catch of the tournament?. 66/1
7.1 to NJ Maddinson, given! That looked out, tossed up on off and Maddinson goes for the reverse sweep, but misses completely. Given, easy call. Struck in front of off and middle, height was not a problem .. 66/2
13.1 to JC Silk, wild hoick and gone! Another one falls to a wild slog. Tossed up on off, Silk goes for a slog sweep but the ball lobs up off the top edge and is easily taken by Simmons at cover. Big wicket.. 98/4
13.6 to RGL Carters, gone, another one. Sixers collapsing. Carters did not pick Rashid at all. This one is the legspinner outside off, Carters goes for a drive but can only pat the ball straight to cover who takes a sitter. Sixers in trouble.. 105/5
10.4 to EJM Cowan, gone! Cowan holes out. Flat on leg, cowan goes for the slog sweep but doesn't get under it enough, straight to deep midwicket!. 90/3

TOTAL19.3 Ov (RR: 9.33)182/5
Fall of wickets: 1-46 (Craig Simmons, 4.1 ov), 2-54 (Mahela Jayawardene, 5.3 ov), 3-66 (Tim Ludeman, 8.3 ov), 4-113 (Brad Hodge, 14.5 ov), 5-123 (Alex Ross, 16.3 ov)
4.1 to CJ Simmons, the ball was swirling in the air, tough against the night sky but he kept his eye on the ball, positioned himself nicely and took it on the second attempt. It was an almighty heave over midwicket, but all Simmons managed to get on it was a top edge, as the fielder caught it on the second attempt between his thighs.. 46/1
5.3 to DPMD Jayawardene, nothing delivery but it gets the wicket, so it really doesn't matter, does it? Back of length delivery angling away, Mahela looks to use the pace and glide that wide of the wicketkeeper, but can only feather and edge through. Two wickets in quick succession now. 54/2
14.5 to BJ Hodge, this time, the catch is taken by Sean Abbott. Short ball, he rolled his wrists on that one to keep the pull down., it was a short boundary, but found the lone man at deep backward square leg. Big moment in the match. 113/4
16.3 to AI Ross, goes for a wild swing, only manages to slice it down towards third man, the point fielder threw his hat into the race by going for it, but backed off finally., and Ayre held his own to take it quite comfortably. 123/5
8.3 to TP Ludeman, that has come about because of the squeeze that was superby applied in the last over. Ludeman looks to clear the short leg side boundary at deep backward square, swings it across the line but only gets a top edge, the wicketkeeper had quite a task at hand in his quest to take that skier, ran to his left, kept his eyes on the ball, ensured he wasn't too close to it and pouched it as cleanly as they come.. 66/3
