Mitchell Marsh3031110.3363101
3.1 to UT Khawaja, the captain KO's Khawaja with his first ball. Khawaja charged Marsh, who dragged this back very short on off stump. Khawaja continued to go through with an attacking flat-bat pull but splices this straight to mid-on, simple catch taken on the knees coming forward from the ring.. 18/1
Chris Jordan402837.00102120
11.1 to AJ Nair, length ball from Jordan on fourth stump, Nair charges to slog this but defeated by lack of pace as its a slower ball at 117 kph, thin edge off the shoulder of the bat and barely carries through to Inglis who dives forward to claim this before it has a chance to dip short.. 80/3
11.4 to DR Sams, bouncer down leg, goes to pull this but it comes off the gloves and Inglis has a sharp diving take tumbling to his left. Sams' horror season with the bat continues.. 82/4
19.3 to AD Hales, slower ball on a length on middle stump, tries to muscle this back down the ground, but great effort by Patterson running 20 yards to his right to intercept this. Would've been six had he not covered the ground but he takes the catch at chest height.. 146/5
Fawad Ahmed402716.7571010
6.1 to CJ Ferguson, strikes immediately! Flighted on a fullish length on leg stump, Ferguson tries to whip this across the line through midwicket and a leading edge balloons to Marsh at extra cover, basic catch at head height.. 32/2

13.2 to JP Inglis, Doggett has finally held onto one! This one fools Inglis and it comes off a top edge into short midwicket, Doggett charges right, dives on the ring and holds on. 9/10 on difficulty because he didn't have much time to cover the ground, but it was coming at a gentle pace and he is able to get hands underneath it. Doggett gets hugs and cuddles from everyone on the Thunder.. 136/1
Chris Morris3.3038110.8575120
15.1 to LS Livingstone, length ball on off, tries to end the match with a six but instead picks out deep midwicket. Got the elevation but not the distance. Caught five yards inside the rope.. 151/2
