Jackson Bird403508.7594110
Steve O'Keefe403328.25101300
3.2 to LS Livingstone, after so many walks down the track, one finally goes awry. O'Keefe spears this one flatter and tighter into the body, cramps Livingstone trying to heave this over the leg side rope, gets it too straight and skies it to cow corner. Simple catch five yards in from the ring taken on his haunches.. 23/1
17.6 to JP Inglis, holes out to cow corner. Short on the stumps this time, cranks this too flat to Silk who takes this at head height five yards in from the rope. He pulverized that ball but just didn't get any elevation.. 156/4
Jake Ball4043010.7566100

Dan Christian403508.7564011
Carlos Brathwaite10909.0011000
Lloyd Pope201326.5050100
11.3 to C Munro, hammers another sweep but this time picks out backward square leg inside the ring! Munro was showing no mercy but perhaps a bit hubristic here going non-stop attack on Pope's first three balls. Tries to hammer this off his pads but doesn't get the elevation to clear Bird leaping up inside the ring.. 88/2
13.6 to JJ Roy, change of pace claims Roy. He was struggling to find his timing as his innings went along. Tried to hit out or get out and does the latter here. Pope slides this in flatter, fuller and quicker into the body. Roy goes for the slog sweep but it rushes him a bit and he skies this to deep backward square. Good catch taken on his haunches two yards in from the rope.. 99/3

Jhye Richardson401533.75131000
2.4 to JM Vince, another one falls. Both opening bowlers have been probing that fourth/fifth stump channel and Vince was tentative poking away from his body to this good length ball. Superb bowling. Healthy edge carries to the keeper with ease.. 10/2
9.6 to CR Brathwaite, too easy. Brathwaite is vulnerable to the short ball and gives catching practice to backward point. Richardson bangs this in short on fourth stump, Brathwaite with a tame shot leaning back to run this off the open face straight to the man on the ring. A fielding coach couldn't have set up a training shot any better.. 58/6
15.3 to JT Ball, yorker yorker yorker! Another one bites the dust to a pitched up delivery. Hopeless footwork, just waves the bat at this in vain as middle stump is split backward. Scorchers bowlers are ruthless tonight.. 92/9
Jason Behrendorff201618.0053000
1.6 to JR Philippe, Behrendorff's length was challenging the last several balls and finally gets this tighter to the stumps to draw the edge. Was full and angled onto fourth stump, Philippe tried to flick this over midwicket but an edge carries easily to slip at chest height. Deserved wicket.. 9/1
Fawad Ahmed301715.6661000
12.1 to J Edwards, Fawad joins the party. Roy with another sharp take at extra cover this time. Fawad tosses this up full on fifth stump, Edwards tries to blast this over the ring but doesn't get the elevation and Roy completes a sharp take at thigh height on the ring.. 74/7
Aaron Hardie201708.5011000
Andrew Tye3.402045.45123000
6.6 to DP Hughes, Tye strikes next ball after just missing out on a wicket one ball earlier. Back of a length on fourth stump, Hughes cramped for room trying to cut and can't keep this down, it carries low to backward point, sharp catch taken at ankle height.. 44/3
8.5 to DT Christian, from bad to worse for the Sixers. Length ball on the stumps, Christian tries to muscle this over mid-on. Climbs and hits the splice of the bat before it flutters to mid-on. Simple catch for Turner on the ring.. 52/5
14.1 to SNJ O'Keefe, power outage! Tye yorks O'Keefe first ball. Picture perfect delivery that O'Keefe couldn't jam out. Middle stump knocked back.. 87/8
16.4 to L Pope, Tye claims it himself to round off a four-wicket haul and clinch the match. Fullish length on the stumps, Pope backs away to heave over mid-on but skies it straight over the pitch. Mid-on, midwicket, the keeper all could have come in to pouch it but Tye calls them all off the pocket this adjacent to the pitch.. 97/10
Mitchell Marsh201216.0072000
7.5 to JC Silk, almost took a wicket previous ball with an identical delivery and this time the slash carries to deep third man. Marsh was working to a plan going short outside off trying to bring deep third man into play. Silk tries to attack on his very first ball but can't control the shot and it sails flat to the man stationed there, taken three yards in from the rope at chest height.. 47/4
