Jonathan Cook403318.2570220
10.4 to MP Stoinis, fuller on the stumps, Stoinis goes inside out but doesn't really middle it. Ends up skying it towards deep extra cover and Sams takes a neat catch for a much-needed breakthrough. 97/2
Daniel Sams302428.0081200
19.2 to NCR Larkin, a slower yorker at the stumps, looks to steer it through the gully region but gets beaten. The stumps are disturbed. 166/7
19.4 to A Zampa, Zampa departs as well. Moves across and looks to scoop it over but misses and is bowled, another slower ball fetches Sams the wicket. 167/8
Chris Green4042210.5064100
14.4 to GJ Maxwell, fuller on the stumps, looks to sweep over backward square leg this time but misses and is trapped in front. Lives by the sweep, dies by the sweep. 133/4
18.1 to CD Hinchliffe, Hinchliffe misses a straight full toss as he looks to work it on the leg side, ends up playing all around it and is struck on the pads. No doubt about this one. 162/6
Nathan McAndrew403619.0095040
13.2 to HWR Cartwright, short of length at the body, Cartwright goes for the pull but gets only a top edge. A regulation catch for Cook at fine leg. 118/3
Tanveer Sangha402626.5071010
4.3 to ADS Fletcher, fuller on the pads, looks to go leg side but misses and gets hit on the pads. An appeal for lbw and given. Fletcher has to walk back but it looked like it may have gone down the leg side. Fletcher gestured for the DRS but no reviews in the BBL. 41/1
17.2 to BR Dunk, fuller on the stumps and Dunk once again looks to go over deep midwicket. Chris Green settles under it and takes it calmly, Sangha gets his second. 154/5

2.1 to UT Khawaja, fuller around off, Khawaja moves across and looks to scoop it fine...instead he ends up scooping it straight to the keeper. Dunk accepts it gleefully. Khawaja didn't look pleased. Think he didn't get any bat on that. So that's the third wrong decision in the match. 21/1
Clint Hinchliffe201819.0033000
12.1 to AD Hales, tossed up around off, Hales goes for the slog sweep but didn't get enough distance and Cartwright takes it comfortably at the deep midwicket boundary. 90/2
Adam Zampa401022.50150000
19.3 to N McAndrew, fuller outside off, goes for the slog sweep but gets a top edge as the ball spins away from him. Dunk calls for it and takes it near short square leg. 145/8
19.4 to BJ Holt, length ball on middle and leg, pushed through this time. Holt too goes for a slog sweep and gets a top edge. Ends up skying it towards short third man where Hatcher had no problems pouching it. 145/9
Liam Hatcher402837.0071130
14.5 to CJ Ferguson, and he too departs now, he was the one keeping Thunder in the game. Fuller outside off, goes inside out over covers but finds Fletcher at the boundary. 115/3
16.3 to BCJ Cutting, taken third time. A low full toss around off. Cutting smashes it towards mid-on where the substitute O'Connell holds on to. 120/4
16.4 to DR Sams, and now they have taken two in a row. Sams backs away and looks to go over extra cover. Stoinis times his jump well, gets both hands to it to give him a second chance. Catches it on the rebound. 120/5
Hilton Cartwright3.1034210.7331201
18.2 to AI Ross, Hinchcliffe takes it easily this time. Fuller outside off, was a slower ball. Ross drags it towards deep midwicket and finds the fielder. 135/6
18.4 to CJ Green, a full toss outside off, hits it aerially down the ground but doesn't get the required distance. An easy catch for substitute O'Connell, his second of the night. 137/7
