Fall of wickets: 1-13 (Jack Edwards, 1.3 ov), 2-26 (Moises Henriques, 3.3 ov), 3-30 (Joe Denly, 4.5 ov), 4-154 (Daniel Hughes, 19.2 ov)
1.3 to J Edwards, another chip from Edwards, but third time isn't the charm apparently. Full and slanted across, sliced towards extra cover where Ashton Agar slides across to his left and snaffles it. 13/1
3.3 to MC Henriques, has he taken it, Yeah, he has! Good diving catch. Another chip from the batsman, this time to a fuller one outside off. Henriques looks to go over mid-on but doesn't manage to get underneath that. Willey dives forward and takes it inches from the ground. 26/2
4.5 to JL Denly, shovelled straight to midwicket. That just had to stick on.. there was no way else he could've got that. Pulled fiercely, with extreme power, and it goes flat and at chest-height to Cartwright. 30/3
19.2 to DP Hughes, short of a length, slower, swings at it but doesn't get enough meat on the shot as the ball dies down towards long-on who bends forward and snaffles it. End of a monumental stand. 154/4

Fall of wickets: 1-0 (Sam Whiteman, 0.1 ov), 2-7 (David Willey, 2.3 ov), 3-9 (Michael Klinger, 2.6 ov), 4-108 (Ashton Turner, 14.4 ov), 5-115 (Ashton Agar, 15.5 ov), 6-116 (William Bosisto, 16.1 ov), 7-126 (Hilton Cartwright, 17.3 ov), 8-136 (Nathan Coulter-Nile, 18.5 ov)
0.1 to SM Whiteman, oh, tame! That was so easy. He's given it away first ball. Length ball, slid across, Whiteman advances, expecting the ball to spin into him but it goes on straight with the angle and beats the outside edge for Phillipe to complete a straightforward stumping. 0/1
2.3 to DJ Willey, great, great catch at the boundary! Willey comes down the ground and goes big straight down the ground. Doesn't get as much of the bat behind it as he would've liked and Joe Denly at long-on sprints to his right and slides across the turn to snaffle it just in front. 7/2
2.6 to M Klinger, looks plumb and given. O'Keefe turning the heat on the Scorchers. Closes the face to one that drifts in subtly, but the ball straightens, beats the inside edge and pins him in front of middle and leg. 9/3
15.5 to AC Agar, fuller ball, drifts back in in the air and then further after pitching to beat the closing face of the bat and ping the pad before deflecting onto the stumps. 115/5
14.4 to AJ Turner, straight to point. Gets up on the toes to a short one and swipes at it but the ball sails flat and straight into the hands of debutant Edwards. 108/4
16.1 to WG Bosisto, oh, what a catch! Hughes pulls off a stunner at short midwicket. This was a shortish delivery outside off, giving him room to free up and pull. Hughes jumps with the right hand outstretched, doesn't manage to hold on, but as the ball drops down to his left, holds on with his left hand out on the second attempt. 116/6
18.5 to NM Coulter-Nile, short, no room, swings looking for a pull and gets a top-edge that the keeper settles under. 136/8
