Ben Dwarshuis403619.00113130
2.6 to BR Dunk, Dwarshuis sneaks through the defences of Dunk with a 117kph legcutter. Pretty full and nips back into the left-handed opener, who plays early and misses. Dwarshuis goes through the gate and provides the Sixers with the first breakthrough. 18/1
Johan Botha201507.5042000
Carlos Brathwaite403127.7583020
3.3 to PSP Handscomb, Handscomb backs away outside leg and comes down the track. Brathwaite pulls his length back and chases the moving batsman. Handscomb can only splice a catch to cover. 18/2
16.6 to GJ Maxwell, Brathwaite does the dab and sends-off Maxwell for 84. Pretty full and outside off - near yorker - Maxwell slices underneath it and finds Abbott at sweeper cover. He falls short of a hundred by 16 runs. Nevertheless, belting innings from Maxwell. 161/5
Sean Abbott2029014.5033210
Joe Denly301916.3360100
14.1 to SE Gotch, Denly tosses a legbreak up outside off, Gotch stretches out and pings a slog-sweep straight into the lap of long-on. Hit flat and hard to Silk. 142/4
Nathan Lyon403518.7542100
13.2 to RJ Quiney, Quiney charges down the track. Lyon holds his offbreak back and shortens his length to beat the batsman. The keeper collects the ball and whips the bails off to end a rollicking century stand. 137/3

James Faulkner3035111.6677000
0.6 to DP Hughes, Gulbis moves about 10-15 metres to his right from deep square leg and throws himself onto the ground. He pouches a stunning catch - with the ball sticking in his left hand. Short on the hips, Hughes middles a pull, but Gulbis tracks it down. 7/1
Daniel Worrall3039013.0073320
Michael Beer302909.6663110
John Hastings3.302727.7194010
9.4 to NJ Maddinson, Hastings has Maddinson lbw with an accurate yorker. Maddinson hangs back and aims to flick it away to the leg side, but the length from Hastings is perfect. Did it pitch outside leg, though? Just in line, I suppose, and Maddinson has to go. 115/2
17.2 to CR Brathwaite, short, wide, outside off, Brathwaite lines it up and clubs it hard but straight into the lap of Maxwell at deep midwicket. Brathwaite nailed it but did not get enough elevation to clear the man in the deep. 186/5
Evan Gulbis302227.3362010
13.5 to MC Henriques, shorter and on off stump, the pitch has quickened up in the second innings, and foils the pull. Splices a catch to midwicket. 154/3
16.2 to J Botha, nowhere near short or wide for the cut. Full on off stump, Botha attempts a cut and ends up bottom-edging it back onto the stumps. 176/4
