Fall of wickets: 1-45 (Kurtis Patterson, 4.5 ov), 2-84 (Shane Watson, 9.3 ov), 3-138 (Usman Khawaja, 15.3 ov), 4-157 (Callum Ferguson, 17.5 ov)
4.5 to KR Patterson, gets a clear edge through to the keeper. Tries to manufacture some room and slash a cut but there is no pace and Patterson has to force a slap. Gets a clean edge to the keeper. A wicket for Kelly in his first BBL over. 45/1
9.3 to SR Watson, Watson skies a catch to long-off. Chips a really slow delivery in the air. Doesn't pick the lack in pace and goes for the big heave. Caught at long-off as he chips in it the air off the toe-end of the bat. 84/2
17.5 to CJ Ferguson, holes out this time and it's the lack of pace that does him in. A short of a length delivery that comes on at minimal pace around off and Ferguson has to muster all the power he can. Hits it straight into the hands of deep midwicket. 157/4
15.3 to UT Khawaja, Agar has Khawaja holing out to backward point. Agar holds this back outside off and gets this to angle away. Nice drop in pace. Khawaja throws his hands at the ball only to slice an outside edge to Klinger. No hundred for Khawaja. 138/3

TOTAL20 Ov (RR: 8.60)172/4
Fall of wickets: 1-11 (William Bosisto, 1.4 ov), 2-25 (Michael Klinger, 4.2 ov), 3-32 (Ashton Turner, 5.3 ov), 4-35 (Adam Voges, 6.2 ov)
5.3 to AJ Turner, it's the slower ball, and Turner's been foxed! Full ball on off stump, but with all the pace taken off it. Loopy delivery that dips fast and Turner misses the flick off his toes. Crashes into his back boot in front of off stump, and the umpire has no hesitation to raise his finger. 32/3
1.4 to WG Bosisto, oh, dear! A nothing short ball that he really could have hit anywhere. What does Bosisto do? He swivels around, middles and times it all well. But placement? Oh, I'm afraid it ain't too great. Hits it straight into the hands of short fine leg. 11/1
4.2 to M Klinger, full on off stump and Klinger tries to lift this over the infield. Can't get under the ball, as he drives straight down. Shouts of 'catch it' and the ball is pocketed by mid off from in front of his face. Not hit well enough by Klinger, he's got to go. 25/2
6.2 to AC Voges, through him! Terrific wrong'un to get rid of Voges. Good-length ball outside off and it spins into the batsman as he tries to drive away from his body, sneaks through the gap between bat and pad, and crashes into middle stump. A legspinner's dream wicket. 35/4
