Jason Behrendorff302117.0092100
2.1 to SR Watson, taken in his follow through! Length ball pushed across him. Looks to hammer it on the rise into the off side. But it comes off slow again, and gets the bat's toe-end. Lobs back to Behrendorff who plucks it to his left. 10/1
Nathan Coulter-Nile402917.25114010
18.2 to JJS Sangha, length ball in at leg stump. Squats and swipes from under, ends up slicing it straight to deep square. 121/6
David Willey10808.0011000
Andrew Tye403619.0054010
15.4 to DR Sams, taken at long-off! Agar leaps to his left and holds on. This was a slower ball, dropped short outside off. He lined up and summoned all his core strength to slap this, but couldn't get it over Agar. Big wicket for Scorchers. 105/4
Ashton Agar402726.7561100
12.5 to CJ Ferguson, middle stump is out. That stays shin height from a short length. Ferguson backs away to try and punch through cover and there's no way he can stop this from hitting the stumps. Kept too low. 92/2
14.2 to JE Root, rolls onto the stumps off his pad. Another one keeps low. Length ball, headed down leg side. Looks to sweep and this deflects off the front pad and rolls on from under him. 98/3
Jhye Richardson401914.75122010
17.1 to JC Buttler, hit wicket! That full slower ball is so slow, Buttler's swing on the reverse-sweep has come extremely early. It's longer as a result, because he still has eyes on the ball. Makes connection with it too, off the inside edge. It rolls through to the keeper but he hits the stumps with that same edge. 115/5

Jonathan Cook401313.25120000
9.4 to CT Bancroft, was that outside off? No, thinks the umpire. Length ball skidding through low and in at off stump. Bancroft shuffles across to flick and might be caught just inside the line. There was no forward stride there, so no doubt about height. 50/3
Daniel Sams3036012.0014020
Chris Green403218.0071200
3.4 to DJ Willey, sliding into middle and leg, tries to launch it over but with the kind of pace on offer, all he can do is launch it into the hands of long-on running to his right. 18/1
Gurinder Sandhu201306.5030000
Fawad Ahmed402225.5092010
8.5 to M Klinger, that looks plumb! Klinger rooted to the crease as this googly rips back in. Looks to play across the line, trying to flick through midwicket. Trapped right in front of middle stump. 50/2
10.3 to AC Agar, taken one-handed at slip! Watson sticks his left hand out and grabs onto this outside edge. Length ball pushed through flat outside off. Agar steps out and looks to go leg side, but he isn't to the pitch and this spins just enough. Superb reflexes from Watson, that bat speed was high on that. Ball was really flying away. 52/4
