Fall of wickets: 1-2 (Ben Dunk, 0.3 ov), 2-112 (Peter Handscomb, 13.1 ov), 3-119 (Kevin Pietersen, 14.3 ov), 4-132 (Seb Gotch, 16.3 ov)
0.3 to BR Dunk, traps him on the knee roll after beating the inside edge. It looks very plumb on first look. Hence the big appeal. Hence, the signal for out. Looks a close on replay. It hit him on a middle and leg line and it was angling in from around the wicket, remember. Ah, tracking shows it was clipping leg stump. Fair call. Another cheap end for Dunk. 2/1
13.1 to PSP Handscomb, finds deep midwicket with the slog sweep and Nabi strikes again. He's connected nicely on this after a big stride outside off. But it's flat to the fielder's right and easily taken. 112/2
16.3 to SE Gotch, outside edge steered straight to the keeper. It's a slower ball that rises on him as he looks to play the late cut. Easy catch for Ludeman. 132/4
14.3 to KP Pietersen, gets under the pull and slices it high for deep midwicket who takes an easy catch. This is good from Wildermuth. Sustains the pressure built over the last two overs and beats him with a slower ball that's dug in outside off. KP wants to smash this over the midwicket fence off the front foot but gets under it too much. 119/3

17.1 to BJ Webster, misses the paddle sweep, and it cannons into middle stump! Full on off stump, and Webster walked across too much to the off side. Tries to paddle this fine down the leg side, but a feather touch takes it onto his stumps instead. The innovation does not play off. 125/7
19.3 to JM Holland, The zing bails light up! 'You miss, I hit' from the bowler. Full on off stump, and Holland misses the straight drive. Takes the top of off stump. 142/9
1.4 to MS Harris, full on off stump, and it's flicked off his toes. Played in the air, but itt's chipped with too little power on it. Gulbis takes a sharp catch at deep midwicket running to his left. 2/1
3.6 to TP Ludeman, caught on the rebound! Maxi! Full and wide outside off, slashes hard at it, but Maxwell at point displays some hang time! Jumps, sticks his right hand up, the ball hits his palm, and falls safely in his hands as he dives behind to complete the catch. Beautiful. 24/2
9.3 to TLW Cooper, oof, KP takes a screamer! It's been slapped off the front foot, but it's in the air. Pietersen jumps across to his right and sticks both hands. Sticks in his palms, as he comes crashing down to Earth after all that anti-gravity stuff. 56/4
5.4 to MW Short, more hang time from the fielder! Good length outside off, and he drives hard at it, flashy shot and it takes a thick outside edge. Flies through to short third man who jumps up to complete a sharp take. 33/3
18.3 to JD Wildermuth, there's Maxi's fourth! Low full toss outside off, and Wildermuth slogs it towards cow corner down on one knee. It's not off the middle of the bat on this occasion, and easily taken by Maxi once again. 138/8
14.4 to Mohammad Nabi, Maxwell's third catch! Full on middle and leg, but Nabi is taking him on this time. Smashes it over the bowler's head but he did not get full under the ball. Hit well, but doesn't have the distance. Down Maxi's throat at long on. 102/6
13.1 to DJ Bravo, gets the wicket first ball! Good length outside off, and Bravo tries a wild cross-batted slog. Comes off the toe end, and it's a skyer. Comfortably taken by Maxwell at long on. 91/5
