Did not bat:
Fall of wickets: 1-0 (Usman Khawaja, 0.2 ov), 2-77 (Alex Hales, 8.5 ov), 3-93 (Callum Ferguson, 11.4 ov), 4-96 (Oliver Davies, 12.3 ov), 5-108 (Sam Billings, 13.4 ov), 6-147 (Daniel Sams, 17.3 ov), 7-165 (Chris Green, 18.4 ov), 8-168 (Ben Cutting, 19.1 ov)
0.2 to UT Khawaja, length, outside off, and he goes for the pull. That's gone in the air off a massive top edge, and Mujeeb ur Rahman goes across from short fine leg, and takes a fine catch! Had to travel a long distance to his left and got there ahead of the keeper, and held on to it despite this going over his left shoulder. Perfect start for Heat. 0/1
18.4 to CJ Green, backs away and tries to slap him down the ground. Top edge, and it flies just short of long-off. Joe Burns comes running in, and takes a smart diving catch ahead of him. 165/7
8.5 to AD Hales, short, loopy outside off, and Hales looks to cut, but cannot keep this down! Deep point has an easy grab, and Mujeeb's face lights up with a smile. Happy to make up for the previous ball, where he thought he'd done enough to get a false shot out of Hales. 77/2
11.4 to CJ Ferguson, swings one around the corner, but cannot get a good enough hold of this. Mid-wicket is standing about three-quarters of the way in from the fence, and that has come in quite nicely to him. 93/3
12.3 to O Davies, length, and he has gone across the line on this, and is gobbled up at deep square leg. Perhaps went a bit early, without getting his eye in, especially against Steketee. Good pace and bounce on that, and a smart catch by Wildermuth as well to complete the loop. 96/4
19.1 to BCJ Cutting, full toss, and pulled straight down the throat of mid-wicket! Steketee's extra pace perhaps helping him, as also Cutting looking to go for the longer part of the ground. Bryant was a few yards in, and took it easily. There might have been a bit of doubt about the height of that ball, but it was below waist height. 168/8
17.3 to DR Sams, the angle across him works, and Mujeeb takes another catch at short third man! More pace on this, and a good line, that forces Sams to go across the line as he attempts to get it down towards square leg. Off the edge, and Mujeeb takes this without much discomfort. 147/6

TOTAL19.1 Ov (RR: 9.13)175/5
Fall of wickets: 1-37 (Max Bryant, 3.4 ov), 2-54 (Chris Lynn, 5.2 ov), 3-144 (Joe Denly, 14.5 ov), 4-144 (Lewis Gregory, 14.6 ov), 5-169 (Joe Burns, 18.3 ov)
18.3 to JA Burns, short, and he has cut this straight to point. A very good Burns innings comes to an end. Couldn't be blamed for that dismissal, would have gotten four had he just managed to place it wide of Khawaja, or perhaps just clear him. In the end, a good sharp catch by the latter, and Heat lose their fifth. 169/5
3.4 to M Bryant, short, and he has pulled this straight to mid-wicket. McAndrews takes the catch, standing a few yards inside the boundary. 37/1
5.2 to CA Lynn, Sangha has his revenge! A touch fuller, and Lynn still looks for the cut. Ends up slicing this to Davies at backward point. Immediate celebrations in the Thunder camp, because Lynn was looking quite dangerous, especially against pace. 54/2
14.5 to JL Denly, Sangha gets his man, but is it too little too late? Tossed up around off, and Denly is in a hurry to finish this. Skips down the wicket, but is beaten by the length. Ends up wafting in vain, as the ball eludes bat and goes through to Billings, who has the easiest stumping to complete. 144/3
14.6 to L Gregory, wrong 'un, and he has just pulled this down deep mid-wicket's throat! It's short of a length, but Gregory probably didn't pick the variation. Still looking to attack, but perhaps safe to say he could have atleast used a ball or two as a sighter. Sangha will be on a hat-trick when he bowls next. 144/4
