Matthew Short201105.5041000
Billy Stanlake402716.75122111
3.6 to AD Hales, the extra ball gets a wicket! Quick one, top of off, angling in to Hales who was making room, beats him for pace as it skids on and crashes into off stump. 31/1
Peter Siddle403027.5074000
19.2 to AI Ross, leg stump knocked over as he strikes with the yorker. Ross had his leg stump exposed n his stance, and Siddle followed his own strength. You-miss-I-hit stuff. 166/4
19.4 to DR Sams, fourth score of zero in a row! Full toss on middle, and he misses the flick after walking across the stumps. Big appeal, and the umpire raises his finger (no fly itch this time).. 166/5
Wes Agar3033011.0014000
Rashid Khan4044111.0043211
18.3 to CJ Ferguson, but Ferguson's done his job before holing out at deep midwicket. Quicker in the air, full on off, and the attempted slog gets a top edge on this occasion. 163/3

Chris Green402706.7591111
Daniel Sams403228.00102211
1.4 to PD Salt, slower one, excellent change, saw Salt backing away again, held the pace and the length back, he tried to go over the off side anyway but mistimed it straight to extra cover. 2/1
13.3 to J Weatherald, silence in the crowd as Weatherald holes out to Green at long on. Slower ball, on off, and the attempted loft doesn't have the power. 106/5
Jonathan Cook2026113.0041300
2.5 to MW Short, short and hammered, but straight down Daniel Sams throat! Unlucky for short, it was a long-up, he got into a good position and got plenty behind it but found Sams on the boundary who held his balance as he caught that inches from the rope. 11/2
Nathan McAndrew302107.0052010
Chris Morris403729.25113300
5.4 to AT Carey, length outside off, he backs away, slashes and misses, or no? he's feathered that to the keeper and Morris has his revenge. 36/3
12.5 to JW Wells, full and wide, and he goes for the slap over point. Nearly a perfect shot, but didn't have the elevation to clear Ross at deep point. Wells out -- a rare dismissal for him this BBL. 99/4
Arjun Nair301926.3352000
15.2 to C Valente, soft dismissal as Nair bowls the legbreak.Valente goes for a shot over long on, but leading edge went straight in the air to the captain at cover. 116/6
15.5 to CL White, strikes again! Full outside off, and he goes for an inside out drive. Sliced to deep extra cover instead. 118/7
