Sandeep Lamichhane402315.75112000
7.4 to CJ Ferguson, tossed up again, on off, and he looks to clear long on by going for a bit shot. But Ferguson mistimes, and the fielder in the deep takes a catch near his face right near the boundary line. Back leg not touching the rope...so Ferguson falls for just 1. Two quick wickets for the Hurricanes now, both to spin. 67/2
D'Arcy Short402636.50100110
6.4 to AD Hales, holes out! Full on middle, and Hales tries to slog against the turn. Toe-ends the shot, and deep midwkcket takes a simple reverse-cup catch. End of a 59-run stand. 59/1
8.6 to SW Billings, classical wristspinner's wicket! Tossed up on middle, and turning away. Billings looks to flick against the turn, and the leading edge goes straight back to Short. He's got safe hands...and this is a third wicket for spinners.. 71/3
10.3 to UT Khawaja, big appeal, and given! Full on middle, and he's down on one knee to slog leg side. But he misses, and it hits his back leg right in front of middle. This would've crashed into the stumps. A wicket soon after the break...we see it so often. 76/4

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Arjun Nair301916.3341000
14.3 to TH David, straight to cover! Half-tracker on off, and he looks to cut. Slapped hard, but taken by the fielder! This was a low-ish catch, but Ferguson's got safe hands. 106/5
Adam Milne402516.2593010
16.5 to M Wright, you miss, I hit! The X-Factor doesn't do much. Full and straight, and Wright misses the big shot. Rattles the stumps. 116/7
Nathan McAndrew402526.25142121
4.2 to DJM Short, extra pace does the trick! Short ball, gets onto Short a bit early, and he's late on the pull. Hits the top half of the bat and simple catch for midwicket running to his right. 36/1
4.6 to BR McDermott, slow finger of death! And that's a second wicket in the over for Nathan. Full on middle, nips back a bit, and he misses the leg-side flick. Hits his back leg, and the umpire agrees with the appeal from the bowler. 43/2
Chris Green402325.75111100
11.4 to DJ Malan, yorked! Bowls it at the base of middle and leg, and Malan can't dig it out. Over 100kph, and the world's No. 1 T20I batsman has been dismissed. 91/3
17.2 to NP Winter, overpitched on middle. Winter looks to drive to mid on, but the ball hits his front boot, and the lbw appeal is given by the umpire.. 117/8
Tanveer Sangha402927.2563010
13.2 to PSP Handscomb, the youngster gets the big wicket of the Hurricanes captain! Full outside off, turning away, Handscomb comes down the ground and he can't connect. Billings collects and whips the bails off in a flash. Sangha is now tied-first for most wickets this season. 98/4
15.6 to CA Ingram, Sangha is now the leading wicket taker, outright! Last ball of his spell, goes full and very wide. Ingram goes for a dragged slog, and it takes a tiny edge that Billings grabs. Would've been a wide had Sangha left it. 112/6
