Adam Zampa301715.6661000
0.2 to J Edwards, beaten by a cracking leg break and a stumping appeal! He's out! He pushed forward, closed the face and was beaten by the turn, Handscomb whipped the bails off and Edwards had his back foot in the air trying to stretch back. He didn't get it down in time!. 4/1
Glenn Maxwell402716.75102100
3.4 to JL Denly, caught at long on! Denly advances again and lofts to long on but he's just short of the pitch and gets underneath it launching it miles in the air, Bravo comes in off the rope, waits for it to fall from the sky and takes a very good catch. 26/2
Scott Boland201708.5053000
Sandeep Lamichhane401824.50111000
8.2 to MC Henriques, LBW! Undone by a brilliant wrong un! Pitched outside off, he was caught on the crease, didn't pick it, it zipped past the inside edge, hit him on the front shin infront of off stump! Easy decision. Beautifully bowled. 53/4
11.6 to TK Curran, LBW! The umpire took his time but Sandeep gets another! Wrong un middle, he tries to reverse sweep, gets hit on the front pad and is given out! It was touch and go to hit leg stump but the umpire thought long and hard and gave it. 70/6
Jackson Coleman301836.0081010
7.1 to DP Hughes, bowled him! Beaten by a slower ball. It was 105kph, leg cutter slower ball, it slides in off a length, sneaks between bat and pad and crashes into middle and off! Well bowled. 48/3
16.4 to SA Abbott, caught behind! It would have been a wide! Another slower ball, wide of the guideline, he chased it trying to drive square, got an edge and it carried to Handscomb diving forward to his right. 103/7
18.1 to SNJ O'Keefe, caught at long on! He tried to launch a slower ball over long on, he got under it and skied it high to long on, Maxwell camps under it and judges it well to hold on. 112/8
Dwayne Bravo402827.00103010
10.1 to JR Philippe, chopped on! Shorter ball, slower ball wide of off, he tries to pull, it just holds up and stays a touch low, he gets a bottom edge and drags it onto the stumps!. 63/5
19.2 to BJ Dwarshuis, caught at long on! Good catch from Maxwell. Slower ball, length, he sits back and flat bats this hard and straight of long, Maxwell runs along the rope and holds on to a very hot chance. He is a gun. Made that look much easier than it was. 122/9

Steve O'Keefe402225.50121010
0.6 to BR Dunk, caught at backward point! He gave himself room to hit over mid off, it slides on across him, he slices it off the outside off, it flies high to backward point, Dwarshuis hangs on to the catch although it was a touch awkward. 4/1
9.1 to NCR Larkin, caught at cover! Henriques hauls this in! Outstanding grab. Tossed up outside off, he lofts a drive trying to go over cover, Henriques leaps early and and hangs onto it with two hands at full stretch! What a good catch. 91/2
Ben Dwarshuis3.502636.78112110
12.1 to PSP Handscomb, caught at mid off! Henriques held this one. Fuller on off, he tries to place this wide of mid off instead of going over the top, but he didn't time it, Henriques moving to his left on the circle takes the catch at waist-height. 109/3
12.4 to GJ Maxwell, caught at mid on! He skies a top edge straight up! Shorter length, not quite short enough to pull, he got a top edge off the toe end of the bat, it flew straight up to mid on, Silk cruises under it and takes the catch comfortably. 110/4
14.2 to MP Stoinis, caught behind! Slower ball wide of off does the trick. He just rolled the fingers over an off cutter, he leaned back to leather it through point, got a thin edge through to the keeper. 128/5
