BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Daniel Worrall201407.0073000
Nathan Coulter-Nile201718.5041100
1.3 to LS Livingstone, length ball on sixth stump, tries to pull this through the leg side but instead skies this a mile high towards deep midwicket. Stoinis runs in 15 yards from the rope moving to his left and takes this confidently with fingers pointed up and palms out while tumbling left. 8/10 on difficulty due to the height and swirl but he was very composed in holding on.. 10/1
Haris Rauf2.502318.1190220
13.5 to Fawad Ahmed, knee high full toss on the stumps, Fawad backs away to create room through the off side and misses. Bowled halfway up the stumps. Poor ball but too much heat on it for a tailender.. 86/10
Glenn Maxwell10818.0021000
4.6 to JP Inglis, uses his feet but beaten by a quicker and flatter ball again with the length dragged back a fraction on middle stump, tries to drive straight over Maxwell but goes off the splice fluttering to mid-off where Larkin takes a simple catch at waist height shuffling in from the ring.. 48/3
Sandeep Lamichhane31722.33110000
12.3 to CJ Jordan, lusty slog from Jordan after looking uncomfortable the previous two balls. Ball pitched on a fullish length but he had to reach out a long way to heave this straight for long-on, too far underneath it to get the distance and taken at long-on 10 yards in from the rope.. 79/8
12.4 to JA Richardson, on a hat-trick! Googly spins back in from a good length on fourth stump, pokes forward and bowled through the gate.. 79/9
Jackson Coleman301635.3360040
7.3 to MR Marsh, full and wide to encourage the drive, can't control it though as it flies off the edge toward Worrall at backward point. Wasn't coming at a very fast pace and leaped up with two hands over his head to take the catch. Probably made it more theatrical than it needed to be. 7/10 on difficulty due to the lack of pace coming off the bat. It was dipping by the time it reached him on the edge of the ring.. 58/4
9.1 to TH David, angled across a good length on fourth stump, not much footwork trying to cut through point and cramped for room on the shot, thick edge through to Gotch behind the stumps.. 64/5
9.5 to J Morgan, yorkers through this over, finally gets the radar right on the stumps. Morgan tried to drive this through mid-on instead of focusing on keeping it out and pays the price.. 68/6

Fawad Ahmed302518.3373100
8.5 to BR Dunk, short of a length again on fourth stump, goes for another back foot punch, this time the thinnest edge of the over bobbled by Inglis as it clangs off his chest before settling back into his gloves.. 56/2
Mitchell Marsh201517.5051010
7.4 to HWR Cartwright, back of a length on fifth stump, goes to pull again but skies this over the pitch. Marsh settles under it at short mid-on just adjacent to the pitch, takes it easily with fingers pointed to the sky, palms out.. 47/1
