14.5 to JR Doran, leading edge back to the bowler as he gets squared up trying to work this into the leg side, face of the bat closed and Bowe just about hangs on. 138/2
11.3 to MS Wade, well caught this time! A parried effort on long-off rope by Dunk...Wade drilled this down the ground, but it was struck quite flat - bowled much slower - Dunk judged were he was perfectly, held the catch then tossed it up as he went across the boundary before regathering it. 95/1

Fall of wickets: 1-5 (Evan Gulbis, 1.1 ov), 2-40 (Nick Larkin, 4.6 ov), 3-45 (Ben Dunk, 6.1 ov), 4-51 (Nic Maddinson, 7.2 ov), 5-94 (Dwayne Bravo, 12.2 ov), 6-106 (Seb Gotch, 14.2 ov), 7-124 (Liam Plunkett, 16.1 ov), 8-126 (Jonathan Merlo, 16.4 ov), 9-126 (Jackson Bird, 16.5 ov), 10-126 (Liam Bowe, 17.1 ov)
1.1 to EP Gulbis, strikes first ball! Gulbis gives himself room to the leg side, misses his square cut and the top of off stump is clipped. 5/1
7.2 to NJ Maddinson, given lbw, that's a big wicket! Round the wicket, a full and straight delivery, Maddinson plays across it and is taken on the back leg in front of all three. 51/4
14.2 to SE Gotch, loses control as he swings across the line of a short-of-a-length delivery and Botha settles underneath it. 106/6
17.1 to L Bowe, cleaned him up! At that's a good way to finish things. A yorker from Archer...well, actually, Bowes has smashed the stumps himself as he's gone so far back in his crease.. 126/10
4.6 to NCR Larkin, pulled to short fine leg! A well-directed short ball, cramped Larkin for room, at the body, he goes for the pull and can't keep it down. Was onto him too quickly. 40/2
12.2 to DJ Bravo, straight up the air and taken! Bravo cut-off just as he was promising...Meredith went fuller, 145kph, and Bravo tried to go straight down the ground, lost his shape and it was a simple catch for Archer at mid-off. 94/5
16.1 to LE Plunkett, finds deep square leg as Plunkett picks him out as he pulls a short-of-a-length delivery. 124/7
16.5 to JM Bird, caught at long leg...another for Meredith as he bangs in a short ball at 145kph, Bird hooks and gets a top edge, neatly taken coming in by Archer. 126/9
6.1 to BR Dunk, dragged on! Short can do no wrong tonight...a short of a length delivery outside off, Dunk goes for the cut and gets a bottom edge onto off stump. 45/3
