6.6 to JC Buttler, he's not looked in touch at all and he's missed a straight one now. That's the wrong 'un, doesn't look like Buttler picks it. He registeres the ball tossed up. He hopes it would give him the room to slog over wide long-on. Problem is, it angles into him, sneaks between bat and pad and crashes into middle and leg. 47/2
13.3 to SR Watson, taken at long-off! For the longest time, it seems like Watson has placed the ball well enough to get a boundary. He certianly hit it hard enough. One of his best shots of the night really. Except Burns runs quickly to his left, eyes on the ball, reverse cup coming out at the perfect time to snap the ball up. Shadab does the trick.. 107/3

4.1 to KR Patterson, taken at deep midwicket, whilst the rain falls! Lovely bowling from Lalor. He changes his length with the batsman haring out of his crease, digs it in short and cramps him for room. Patterson goes for the pull, wanting to flap the ball away as far as he can. Only ends up finding one of the Heat's best fielders. 23/1
16.3 to CJ Ferguson, caught by Lynn running to his right from midwicket. Excellent bowling from Lalor, going short, getting it to clumb up towards his chin, cramping the batsman for room and it's all tied up by the fact he's beat the batsman for pace. Ferguson goes for a pull and only manages a top edge. 141/4

1.6 to BB McCullum, bowls him with the slower ball! What a ball! What a wicket! McCullum is not ready for the offcutter, he's coming onto the front foot, searching for the ball which pitches just in front of him but a lot later than he expects it to. Then, it breaks sharply off the pitch to crash into off stump. Mean delivery.. 9/1
13.1 to BCJ Cutting, takes the pressure catch does the captain! It's a full toss outside off, Cutting, the danger man, gets it off the toe of the bat, and skies it to point. Good plans - keeping the ball away from the reach of the big-hitter. 112/4

5.1 to CA Lynn, picks out deep midwicket and Watsons roars in pure vindication after sending down the back of a length delivery that does the trick. It's a bit slow. It is hit away powerfully, brutally, but there's a man there and he takes a very simple catch.. 48/2

10.2 to JJ Peirson, sets up deep in his crease to get under the good length ball outside off. But he may have overdone it and the pull shot finds long-on perfectly. Nair strikes, pressure rises.. 92/3
