TOTAL20 Ov (RR: 8.85)177/6
Fall of wickets: 1-18 (Marcus Stoinis, 2.2 ov), 2-36 (Seb Gotch, 5.3 ov), 3-46 (Nick Larkin, 7.4 ov), 4-90 (Nic Maddinson, 11.6 ov), 5-146 (Glenn Maxwell, 17.4 ov), 6-157 (Nathan Coulter-Nile, 18.6 ov)
2.2 to MP Stoinis, whipped straight to short fine! It's short of a length and rising up at hip-height, down leg side. He uses his wrists to try and lift that over the fielder, but it's a fairly comfortable take above the head. 18/1
7.4 to NCR Larkin, that looks dead in front. Dwarshius gets this full and at middle stump and thumping into Larkin's back leg, from around the wicket. He was looking to flick with the front leg out in the leg side and missed that completely. 46/3
18.6 to NM Coulter-Nile, another miscued pull and this one goes to hand. Short, slower one outside off. A sliced pull that hangs in front of short fine, who is politely asked to move away by the keeper who takes the catch. 157/6
11.6 to NJ Maddinson, taken low to the left. Good grab from Philippe. It's short of a length and across the corridor. he hangs leg side of it for the late cut and gets an outside edge that dips on the keeper who moves nicely. 90/4
5.3 to SE Gotch, taken at third man! Another length ball kicks up, also jags away a touch in the corridor. Gotch was looking for the pull, only managed to slice it up for SOK who was pretty fine at third man. Took a couple of steps in to take it and then seemed to limp as he came in to celebrate with the team. 36/2
17.4 to GJ Maxwell, inside edge onto the stumps! It's a wide full toss and Maxwell is down leg side trying to reach out at that. Loses his shape and manages only to drag that onto the stumps on the bounce. 146/5

TOTAL19.5 Ov (RR: 9.07)180/5
Fall of wickets: 1-6 (Josh Philippe, 0.5 ov), 2-9 (Daniel Hughes, 1.2 ov), 3-84 (James Vince, 9.5 ov), 4-101 (Moises Henriques, 12.1 ov), 5-103 (Carlos Brathwaite, 12.6 ov)
0.5 to JR Philippe, taken at short third man! Full slower ball at off stump. Philippe reaches out after being completely foxed. That's dipping on him after he's set up for a big swat into the leg side. Thick edge dips on Stanlake who lunges low to his left to hold on. 6/1
1.2 to DP Hughes, oh that is a brilliant take from Maxwell! Running backwards from first slip. Short of a length delivery rising across the corridor from Stanlake. Hughes is rooted to the crease and all hands as he looks to drag this into the leg side. It's a bit of an aimless waft. Gets the top edge that flies, initially, in the direction of third man. But then starts curving towards the leg side. Maxwell follows it along this path and then gets in perfect position to get that in front of his body. 9/2
12.6 to CR Brathwaite, taken at mid-off! NCN was all over Brathwaite in that over, and he gets him in the end. He's backing away in anticipation of the rising ball. Gets it too, but it's a slower one outside off. Looks to swat it flat-batted over the off side, miscues it completely. 103/5
9.5 to JM Vince, straight to extra cover! Length ball outside off, gets deep in the crease and frees his arms with the punch. But can't avoid the fielder. 84/3
