Brendan Doggett301916.3383000
12.3 to JW Wells, that is plumb A yorker at middle stump, shuffles and clears the front leg for the slog. Misses it entirely. 98/4
Nathan McAndrew20814.0081000
2.2 to AT Carey, taken at mid-off. Good length and angled into the corridor again. It's been such a good restrictive line so far to the left-handers. This time Carey wants to punch it over the bowler, on the up. Gets it off the toe-end and Hales only has to take a couple of steps back to get under this. 8/1
Ben Cutting201608.0031020
Tanveer Sangha2020110.0032100
4.3 to PD Salt, taken at deep midwicket! Signs of a plan coming together for Thunder. Two sweepers on the off side, he tosses a legbreak full and wide outside off. Salt takes it on with a slog sweep and can't do well enough as he fetches this. Not to the pitch of it and that makes him slice an easy one out for the fielder there. 25/2
Chris Green201919.5040210
6.3 to TM Head, lofted straight to sweeper cover. Steps out, pre-meditation it seems. Green fires it full and wide, makes him reach out to try and get anything on it. And he's lost his shape entirely to find the fielder. 35/3

0.1 to UT Khawaja, oh the perfect delivery first up! What a ball that is. Big, hooping inswinger from off stump. Khawaja is caught off guard trying to hurriedly flick this, but that catches his front pad and crashes into the off stump. Beauty. 0/1
