3.4 to JC Buttler, leading edge caught at point! Well bowled slower ball. It was a leg cutter, back of a length, he tried to close the face to work through the leg side, got a leading edge and it ballooned to Gulbis at point. Very simple catch.. 28/1
3.5 to CJ Ferguson, caught at backward point! Another slower ball, 117kph, good length, wide of off, he threw the hands through it trying to square drive on the up, he sliced a catch to Larkin at backward point and another easy catch. 28/2
7.5 to SR Watson, caught at long off! Good catch by Dunk low down running in. It was tossed up outside off, he lofted a drive flat down to long off, Dunk was slow moving in and had to dive forward but took a very good catch low to the ground. 49/3
11.6 to JJS Sangha, top edge caught by the keeper Gotch running back! Back of a length ball banged in, he tried to pull, got a top edge that flew straight up, Gotch ran to his left and camped under it and took a comfortable catch. 70/4
12.3 to JE Root, caught at midwicket! Oh no! Good length on middle and leg, he set himself to loft this over midwicket, mistimed it off the inside half the bat straight to Maxwell at midwicket and he took the catch moving easily to his right. 71/5
18.5 to DR Sams, caught at deep point! Stoinis gets lucky there. That was a thigh high full toss, he slices this flat and hard to deep point but straight at Zampa and he holds onto a good catch! If it was hit 10m either side it was six. 129/6
19.3 to CJ Green, top edge skied straight up to the keeper! Brilliant slower ball. He tried to swing it away, but got underneath it and hit it straight up, Gotch barely had to move as it fell straight into his gloves. 133/7

Fall of wickets: 1-21 (Ben Dunk, 2.4 ov), 2-57 (Marcus Stoinis, 6.5 ov)
2.4 to BR Dunk, caught at cover! Great catch by Root! 132kph full outside off, he drives hard but hits it in the air to cover, Root is forced to dive forward but holds onto the catch just above the grass! Great catch. Never easy to move forward like that. 21/1
6.5 to MP Stoinis, sliced to backward point! A mistake from Stoinis. It was a shorter leg break, he gave himself room to thump this off the back foot and sliced a thick edge that balloons to Sandhu at backward point. Simple catch for Sandhu. Handy wicket for the Thunder. 57/2
