Fawad Ahmed402716.75102100
11.3 to MS Wade, the slog sweep and taken on the boundary. The googly (more revolutions on the ball means more bounce) down leg, Wade looks for the sweep, gets a thick top edge due to that bounce, and the ball carries low to McClenaghan at deep backward square leg. Very clever bowling, if that was his aim. 84/2
Mitchell McClenaghan3.203209.6064012
Gurinder Sandhu4148112.0083420
4.2 to AJ Doolan, that's just the worst result for Doolan and the Hurricanes. He took his time, stayed cautious, played shots along the ground, and all that resulted in was additional pressure. He wants to go over the top now, but the ball skews off the inside half to mid-on. It's not a good shot for several reasons, but more so because there is no failsafe if you mis-time it.. 26/1
Arjun Nair2024012.0031220
Shane Watson3.403519.5454100
19.5 to DJM Short, holes out on 97! Three runs will separate him from a maiden BBL hundred, but he's done exceptionally well to put the Hurricanes in prime position today. It's in the slot, on middle and leg, and I'd say if it was the third over of the innings, that would have gone for six. But he is slightly fatigued, so the ball lands in deep midwicket's hands. 188/3

Clive Rose403208.00104100
Tymal Mills4046111.5054210
17.5 to RJ Gibson, another stunning slower ball. Different release, different trajectory, different result. It looked like an offcutting dipping full toss that crept underneath Gibson's swat and hit the base of middle and leg. Fantastic bowling. 156/6
Jofra Archer4042210.5065100
16.4 to AJ Nair, 138 kph, bowls it full and strikes! Full on off, Nair is beaten for pace and by that length. It skids on, beats the outside edge and knocks back off stump.. 149/5
18.6 to CJ Green, finds long-off. Did they cross? Overpitched and wide outside off, hit away nicely but can't get enough elevation, picks out long-off. 167/7
Cameron Boyce301424.66100100
14.3 to SR Watson, taken this time. Some flight around middle, maybe too much, but it was so full that Watson couldn't get underneath the length. He skews a catch to long-on, like how Buttler did earlier. The difference here is the catch is taken. 125/2
14.4 to CJ Ferguson, two in two for Boyce. More flight outside off, Ferguson gets across, looking for the sweep through square leg but he gets it much better than he desired. Hit straight to Archer at deep midwicket, who takes a low catch. 125/3
D'Arcy Short10606.0031000
Dan Christian403819.5062200
15.5 to BJ Rohrer, another one caught on the boundary! A bouncer around off, Rohrer has to drag a pull, but with Christian's pace, the ball slices off the top edge to fine leg, who steadies himself and takes a simple catch. 137/4
