Haris Rauf402335.75111120
19.2 to M Gilkes, another slower ball on the legs, skies this flick aiming for midwicket but it sails toward Lamichhane at deep fine leg. He comes in off the rope 15 yards and judges it fairly well, lunging forward at the end to claim this. Give an assist to Zampa for cutting the previous ball to a single to put Gilkes on strike.. 144/3
19.3 to CJ Ferguson, on a hat-trick! Another cutter at 125 kph on a fullish length. Ferguson hasn't looked comfortable since being struck on the toe in Rauf's previous over. Ferguson shuffles well across his stumps mistimes this off his thigh and ricochets into the stumps.. 144/4
19.4 to DR Sams, a doubleheader double hat-trick! Good length ball skids on to beat Sams' flick across and pinned lbw in front of middle. Replays indicate Sams was struck high on the back leg in front of middle and leg with the ball tailing in. Very favorable decision on height and line but he's bowled very well today.. 144/5
Sandeep Lamichhane403909.7563200
Adam Zampa402215.5070000
9.3 to AD Hales, charges the leggie but doesn't get to the pitch on middle stump and there's enough turn to create a skied chance over point on this attempted drive over mid-on. Coulter-Nile struggles to pig this up in the twilight but manages to locate it in the end for a simple catch on the ring.. 61/2
Nathan Coulter-Nile301615.3371000
8.1 to UT Khawaja, and strikes first ball! Goes short to Khawaja on the legs, pulls this high to deep backward square, Larkin comes in initially before backpedaling toward the rope, takes an adventurous catch reaching back behind his head about four yards in from the rope.. 56/1

Daniel Sams403619.0074100
5.4 to NM Coulter-Nile, tries to repeat the shot to a ball that was a touch straighter on middle. McAndrew runs 20 yards left this time and well in from the rope to take a simple catch. Coulter-Nile's pinch-hitting innings ends in six balls. Six and out.. 48/2

Nathan McAndrew302307.6673020
Jonathan Cook201819.0041100
13.4 to MP Stoinis, flighted full on middle, tries to heave for long-on against the turn but it goes off the splice toward long-off. Simple catch taken by Morris 10 yards in from the rope at head height.. 103/4
Arjun Nair201517.5032000
7.3 to NCR Larkin, drags on with a sweep! Flighted much more and wider on fifth stump, Larkin reaches out to cross bat this, not really on a sweepable length and the result is a bottom edge that cannons back onto leg stump.. 60/3
