Fall of wickets: 1-65 (Evan Gulbis, 8.4 ov), 2-69 (Nic Maddinson, 9.5 ov), 3-121 (Ben Dunk, 15.5 ov), 4-121 (Dwayne Bravo, 16.2 ov), 5-134 (Jonathan Merlo, 18.2 ov), 6-135 (Seb Gotch, 18.4 ov)
15.5 to BR Dunk, caught at backward point! Agar holds this one! Short slower ball, high outside off, he upper cuts but there's no pace to work with, he just skies to backward point, Agar cruises back a few paces and takes the simple catch. 121/3
9.5 to NJ Maddinson, caught behind! 132kph, surprise bouncer! It caught Maddinson out because off all the slower balls before it, and he wants to protect that broken wrist that was hit by Jhye Richardson on this ground a month ago, he jumped up and fended it away off the shoulder of the bat, had no idea were it was, it popped up behind him and Bancroft takes a simple catch!. 69/2
16.2 to DJ Bravo, bowled him! 140kph full into leg stump, 28kph quicker than the first ball, he was back and trying to whip through the leg side and beaten for pace, it goes through the gate and smashes into leg stump!. 121/4
18.2 to J Merlo, caught at long on! 116kph slower ball, deceives him, he tries to launch down the ground but gets under it, Coulter-Nile runs in 15m off the rope at long on, camps under it and takes it comfortably enough! The ball nearly took a peak out but no dramas in the end.. 134/5
18.4 to SE Gotch, caught at long on! Good length on speed delivery in the slot to launch into the stands, but he miscues this down to long on, Coulter-Nile doesn't have to move and takes the catch infront of this chest!. 135/6
8.4 to EP Gulbis, caught at wide long on! Qadir gets his first BBL wicket! Tossed up leg break, he slog sweeps but with some extra bounce, gets a thick top edge that flies to wide long on, Willey runs to his right and takes an excellent catch in the swirling wind!. 65/1

Fall of wickets: 1-75 (Michael Klinger, 10.3 ov), 2-96 (Cameron Bancroft, 13.3 ov), 3-136 (Ashton Agar, 16.3 ov), 4-136 (Hilton Cartwright, 16.4 ov)
10.3 to M Klinger, caught and bowled! Shorter length, rib high outside off, he tried to work across the line to midwicket off the back foot, closed the face, got a leading edge that popped up into the leg side, Plunkett runs across and takes the easy catch. 75/1
16.3 to AC Agar, Bowled him! 105kph change up slower ball completely deceives him! Like a change up in baseball, it was a full toss, Agar skipped down to smash it and it just dipped violently and did him cold, it hit the base of middle. That is exceptional skill from Bravo. 136/3
16.4 to HWR Cartwright, bowled him! Two in two! 130kph, yorker tailing down leg, he tried to whip it away behind square, it comes off the inside of his front foot and ricocheted onto leg stump!. 136/4
13.3 to CT Bancroft, appeal for a stumping! It goes upstairs. He's OUT! He tried to sweep from outside off, missed it, he dragged his back foot out, Gotch whipped the bails off in a flash and knew he had his man. The replay shows he didn't get his back foot back in. 96/2
