18.5 to M Klinger, Caught at long off on the rope! This was swung high to the man on the rope, Reardon backs back, takes the catch, steps back, nearly steps on the rope, throws it up, steps back in and catches it! Brilliant from Reardon.. 146/5
Jack Wildermuth402917.2571010
4.3 to SM Whiteman, Caught at deep forward square! This was a length ball in the slot on leg stump, Whitman swung hard but got it high on the bat and mistimed it high to the man in the deep. Heazlett camped underneath and took a comfortable catch.. 31/2
Mitchell Swepson402225.5070000
9.5 to IR Bell, Caught at long on! Tossed up leg break, Bell advances and tries to loft straight, he does;t quite get there and slices it to long off and Steketee camps under it to take the catch.. 74/3
13.3 to AJ Turner, top edge caught at short fine leg! This was a fuller length on leg stump, Turner tries to sweep but the extra bounce causes a top edge to fly high over the keeper's head, Wildermuth runs around from short fine leg to take a good catch. 103/4

Mitchell Johnson412526.25144000
0.3 to JJ Peirson, edged and taken by Turner at slip! Great captaincy to have the slip in. This was a good length, at pace across the right-handed Peirson, he fends away from his body, gets a thick edge that flies low to Turner's right at a wide first slip and he takes a very good catch just above the turf.. 2/1
2.2 to SD Heazlett, caught at mid off! This was a good length, he tries to loft over mid off but his feet didn't really move and he miscues flat straight to the man on the circle who takes a comfortable catch. Great start by the Scorchers. 18/2
Tim Bresnan402927.25112100
12.3 to NJ Reardon, Superb catch from Klinger running back from midwicket! This was a short ball angled across Reardon, he pulls it but it comes off the toe and flies over midwicket's head, Klinger turns and runs back from the circle and catches it on the run going with the flight. The Scorchers have caught well.. 85/5
15.5 to BCJ Cutting, Caught at midwicket by Turner! Great catch. Another short ball, Cutting nails the pull shot but he hits it down, not up, at it flies straight to Turner on the circle who has a beautiful pair of hands and he calmly pouches it just about the turf.. 107/6
Jhye Richardson403428.5092200
3.5 to BB McCullum, holes out at mid on! The big scalp claimed by Richardson. This was a fuller length, McCullum set himself to swing thru the line over long on, he got under it, got it off the toe, it flew high but did not clear Agar on the circle at mid on.. 26/3
18.2 to AI Ross, Picks the man out on the rope! He went again. This was a shorter ball, he cracked it off the middle of the bat to deep midwicket but he hit it flat to the longest part of the ground, Turner holds his ground and his nerve on the rope and takes another very good catch. 124/8
Andrew Tye3.202246.6092011
10.2 to JA Burns, Outstanding catch from Agar running back from mid on! This was another slower ball banged in, he advances and tries to flat bat again, gets a decent piece of it but doesn't nail it, it flies towards the long on rope, Agar turns and runs back with the flight from the circle, catches it at full tilt and then pulls up just short of the rope! Incredible speed to pull that off. 69/4
17.6 to JD Wildermuth, edged behind! Great bowling. Another slower ball that completely deceives Wildermuth, he swings hard but gets a thin outside edge and it floats through to Bancroft for a simple catch. 118/7
19.1 to MJ Swepson, Bresnan takes the catch running back from backward point! Another good slower ball, he swings hard and slices it up over backward point, Bresnan runs back from the circle and takes a good catch. 129/9
19.2 to MT Steketee, Tye takes a hat trick! Bowls him! Another slower ball knuckle ball, he swings hard but misses and it crashes into off stump! What a way to finish for the Scorchers!. 129/10
