Xavier Bartlett402436.0081040
0.5 to J Weatherald, back of a length again, this time straighter on middle stump and Weatherald hit on the knee roll on the front pad playing an awkward cut. He expected that to go on with the angle but it swung back in. Trapped on the crease. He was in trouble on the previous ball, but can't escape the umpire's wrath this time around. Looked a straightforward decision.. 2/1
12.4 to MW Short, back of a length on middle stump, Short premeditated a back away from the stumps to carve over cover, didn't pick the right ball to do it and Bartlett pings the top of the bails over middle and off to light up the stumps.. 81/4
19.4 to JW Wells, low full toss at knee height on middle stump, tries to flick this over the leg side rope but can't clear Lawrence at deep midwicket. Taken with ease at waist height in stride 15 yards inside the rope.. 144/6
Jack Wildermuth402516.2581030
18.4 to HJ Nielsen, overpitched on off at 133 kph, Nielsen tries to drive him straight but can't get the distance to clear long-on. It was in the slot to hit, but Laughlin claims it three yards inside the rope after covering 10 yards moving to his right.. 138/5
Mark Steketee403127.7593100
9.4 to MT Renshaw, picks out deep fine leg! Short ball on the legs, 10 yards either side and it's six. But he smokes a pull flat and straight to Wildermuth on the rope. Fielder never moved. Taken at rib height.. 62/2
9.5 to PD Salt, another slower short ball claims his second scalp! On the stumps, goes to pull and a top edge goes straight up over the pitch. Steketee calls off the keeper to claim it himself before giving a hearty sendoff to Salt.. 62/3

Fall of wickets: 1-0 (Sam Heazlett, 0.2 ov), 2-1 (Simon Milenko, 1.2 ov), 3-25 (Max Bryant, 4.1 ov), 4-35 (Dan Lawrence, 7.3 ov), 5-37 (Jack Wildermuth, 8.4 ov), 6-58 (Tom Cooper, 11.2 ov), 7-67 (Mark Steketee, 12.6 ov), 8-68 (Xavier Bartlett, 13.2 ov), 9-128 (Mujeeb Ur Rahman, 17.2 ov)
Daniel Worrall403117.7594000
0.2 to SD Heazlett, short and wide, there to smash but laces the cut straight to backward point. Didn't try to roll his wrists over it to play it to ground or get under it to clear the ring. Just wanted to crush it and it's plucked at ankle height. Sharp take. Three yards either side and it's a boundary.. 0/1
Danny Briggs402035.0091000
1.2 to S Milenko, poor shot. Flighted on a fullish length on off, tries to heave this against the spin to midwicket. Not nearly full enough for the shot, had to reach out a long way from his body and skies it straight up to mid-off. Easy catch jogging behind the bowler to claim it.. 1/2
11.2 to TLW Cooper, flighted full on middle and leg, goes to reverse sweep and appeared to get a thick inside edge caroming onto the pads. Huge lbw appeal stunningly upheld. Appeared to be a blatantly obvious bottom edge on the live shot. Replays confirm the painstakingly obvious. Massive deviation hitting the bat before redirecting almost onto the bottom of the shin.. 58/6
13.2 to XC Bartlett, another one for Briggs. Can't blame this one on lack of DRS though. Just a stock ball full on the stumps, simple punch with a full face was all that was required. Is there a hole in his bat? Nope, just a fraction late coming down on the drive. It comes off the toe of the bat and backspins into the stumps.. 68/8
Peter Siddle4041210.2563220
12.6 to MT Steketee, full on the stumps, tries to whip this through midwicket and is beaten for pace. Gap between bat and pad is pierced, leg stump knocked back.. 67/7
17.2 to Mujeeb Ur Rahman, yorker again, instead of trying to jam it out safely to Siddle once again, Mujeeb backs away to create room to drive over cover but leaves his stumps plenty exposed and is bowled.. 128/9
Rashid Khan403027.50114100
4.1 to M Bryant, strikes immediately! For all of Rashid's bag of tricks, it's the stock legbreak that claims Bryant. Just a simple delivery on fourth/fifth stump on a good length skidding on at Rashid's sharp pace, but tentative footwork from the batsman does him in. Pokes away from his body looking for a single through point and a thick edge is snapped up.. 25/3
7.3 to DW Lawrence, flighted a touch landing full on off, tries to slog sweep over midwicket and a top edge slices toward short third man. Simple catch on the ring. Strikers toying with the Heat in the field.. 35/4
Wes Agar402516.25134000
8.4 to JD Wildermuth, short on fifth stump, pulls this to deep midwicket. Short charges in from the rope and takes this 15 yards in crouching at waist height. The ball climbed on him sharply and he got it more off the splice than the middle.. 37/5
