Fall of wickets: 1-33 (Jake Weatherald, 2.5 ov), 2-108 (Alex Carey, 11.2 ov), 3-155 (Colin Ingram, 16.4 ov), 4-168 (Matthew Short, 19.3 ov)
2.5 to J Weatherald, and out of a blue, he has picked up a wicket, Weatherald would not be happy with that dismissal. It fuller on the stumps, and he just chipped it back, to the right of the bowler who jumped across to take it with both hands, more like a goalkeeper in football. 33/1
16.4 to CA Ingram, a big wicket, Ingram was once again aiming for the cow corner, it was a wrong'un and he ends up top-edging the slog sweep towards deep midwicket. For a moment, it looked like Sams over-ran it but manages to catch in the end. 155/3
11.2 to AT Carey, pitched up this time, Carey looks to go over the infield but the bottom hand comes off as he could only slice it to extra cover where Watson takes a regulation catch. 108/2
19.3 to MW Short, length, angled outside off, Short moves across and looks it loft it over short fine leg, ends up skying it. Joe Root at short fine leg settles under it to take a neat catch. 168/4

TOTAL20 Ov (RR: 7.75)155/6
Fall of wickets: 1-39 (Jos Buttler, 5.2 ov), 2-74 (Shane Watson, 9.2 ov), 3-110 (Joe Root, 13.2 ov), 4-116 (Jason Sangha, 14.3 ov), 5-137 (Daniel Sams, 16.5 ov), 6-140 (Callum Ferguson, 17.5 ov)
9.2 to SR Watson, oh what a catch! Has he done fine, though? Oh, yeah! Great teamwork. Watson launches this low full toss over the cow corner region. Weatherald is running back, as is Lehmann. Weatherald snaffles it inches ahead of the boundary, and very nearly steps over the boundary, but right before the foot lands outside the boundary, he flicks the ball over to Lehmann backing up. Terrific teamwork. 74/2
5.2 to JC Buttler, walks across and tries to pull, gets a big top-edge off the lower part of the bat and point settles under it. 39/1
13.2 to JE Root, on the pads, clipped uppishly and straight down the throat of deep midwicket. Timed it too well and that was the issue here. 110/3
17.5 to CJ Ferguson, full toss, comes at an awkward height. Swings at it and sends a catch down the throat of deep midwicket. Ferguson is looking at the square leg umpire for a signal. None from him and off he goes. 140/6
14.3 to JJS Sangha, Rashid gets a wicket. Muted celebrations from the usually energetic legspinner. This is a tough time for him. Draws Sangha forward with a length ball, Sangha closes the face against the turn and sends an edge through as it sits nicely into the hands of first slip. 116/4
16.5 to DR Sams, tries to slog, but there's two issues - it's against the turn and that's a long boundary. Gives a catch to cow corner. Second wicket for Rashid. 137/5
