Steve O'Keefe401614.00110000
2.4 to KR Patterson, short drag down the leg side gets the wicket! Patterson pulls it straight to short fine leg and Bollinger takes the simple catch. The ball stopped in the pitch a fraction.. 16/1
Ben Dwarshuis402927.25132220
16.4 to RJ Gibson, Another superb catch at midwicket this time! Dug in short, Gibson mistimes a pull short, it drops sharply and Billings dives forward to take a very skilful catch just above the turf.. 127/7
18.5 to PJ Cummins, Doesn't get all of this and is caught at long off! He just toes it a fraction trying to clear the rope again. It fell just two metres short and Billings holds his spot on the rope and takes the catch.. 147/8
Joe Mennie211628.0082100
9.1 to BJ Rohrer, Brilliant catch from Roy! Cut away backward of point and Roy flies full stretch to his right and plucks it with two hands. That is outstanding work.. 74/3
9.3 to JR Doran, Huge shout and out! Very full and pitching just in line with leg, Doran plays across the line and misses it on the crease. Looked plumb and the umpire agrees. Two wickets in three balls.. 74/4
Doug Bollinger3033211.0077010
11.3 to AD Russell, Caught behind! Shorter ball directed over leg stump. Russell backs away and tries to cut, gets a bottom edge and it carries to Haddin who takes it low around his ankles. That's a blow for the Thunder. 86/5
11.5 to CJ Green, Caught at slip! Brilliant captaincy. Good length angled across him, he drives with minimal footwork, the outside edge flies quickly to Hughes and he pouches it beautifully.. 86/6
Sean Abbott302408.0071100
Johan Botha402917.2571110
8.1 to EJG Morgan, Caught behind! Big spinning off break from over the wicket pitching outside leg across Morgan, he tried to work it square on the leg side, there was a noise as it went past the bat and Haddin celebrated immediately! The umpire agreed. Morgan didn't like it but he's on his way.. 71/2

5.3 to JJ Roy, Deceived by a lack of pace! A cross seam ball that Roy drives at but he checks his shot and presents a very simple catch to the man at mid on. That's a big breakthrough.. 45/1
