Kane Richardson403348.25133200
4.3 to J Weatherald, ends Weatherald's agony! Looks to pull this length ball, but under-edges it straight to the keeper. The home team needed that wicket. 47/1
17.4 to JW Wells, full and in the slot, he extends his arms and lofts this down the ground, but the old pro Dan Christian runs back to his left and times his jump to perfection to pluck this out of thin air, great catch, excellent judgement, looked like a certain boundary. 132/4
19.1 to CL White, slower one outside off, on a length and making him fetch it, White goes down on one knee swings towards the short boundary but gets more elevation than distance, easily taken. 141/5
19.5 to Rashid Khan, it's full outside off, again, Rashid has to really reach for it and only gets height not enough power as it carries comfortably to deep cover to give Richardson his fourth. Useful cameo, though. 153/6
Harry Gurney302508.3332000
Will Sutherland302006.6652000
Cameron Boyce401824.5070000
8.1 to PD Salt, smart take! Full on off, and he drives the googly straight back. Boyce gets in front of the umpire and takes the catch before skipping over the non striker's bat. The umpire was running for cover there!. 74/2
16.1 to AT Carey, you may think it's a freebie, it's a full toss, but it's been thrown well outside off, Carey drags it across the line towards the longer side of the ground, loses his shape and timing completely as the fielder at cow corner doesn't have to move an inch to take that. 125/3

Billy Stanlake403107.7582000
Wes Agar402025.00131020
3.3 to SB Harper, Carey gets a hug from Rashid because they nearly made a mess of it. Full on middle, and the leg-side slog takes a leading edge. The ball's a skyer with Rashid and Carey converging but the keeper finally chooses to take the catch. Takes a tumble, and maybe a knock on his head too, but holds on to it cleanly. Rashid gives out a wry smile. 21/1
12.3 to MS Harris, that's disaster for Renegades! It was a length ball around the hip, fairly innocuous delivery, Harris picks it up and times it well but finds the man on the fence at deep square leg to open a door for the Strikers. 88/4
Peter Siddle403208.0093100
Cameron Valente403629.0060200
19.1 to CJ Boyce, full and straight and knocks him over! He opened up to try and swing across the line but the yorker was on target, through his legs and finds the woodwork. 133/7
19.6 to KW Richardson, full toss, makes a good sound off the bat as he launches this down the ground, pretty high but not far enough as long-on settles under to take that. 137/8
Rashid Khan401523.75100000
10.2 to SE Marsh, lovely ball, thrown up around off, it is a conventional leg break, Marsh presses forward and looks to work it through the leg side, plays all around it and it finds the gap between bat and pad to hit timber. 71/2
14.3 to W Sutherland, beauty, googly and through him! Thrown up around off, enticing him, he reaches out slightly off balance and plays all around out it as the ball spins back in and bursts through the massive gap between bat and pad to take out middle and off. 100/6
