Josh Lalor4049112.2566210
19.1 to JR Philippe, wide line, and battered to short cover! Philippe thought it was the money shot, he seemed to have anticipated the line and length, and connected sweetly enough, but Finch was lurking right in harm's way, and ends a tremendous aggressive innings!. 188/4
Peter Hatzoglou4040210.0074120
1.1 to J Edwards, strikes first ball! It's all about the angle for Hatzoglou as he shapes his leggie back in on a wickedly tight line, Edwards is down on one knee to sweep but misses, and the finger goes straight up. That looked plumb, and what an arrival this chap is making!. 8/1
14.1 to DP Hughes, power cut! There's the down-side of forcing the fielding side to bring their men into the ring... there are suddenly catchers in place for the muffed shots! Outside off from Hatzoglou, and Hughes' flaccid cut takes a top edge and plops to backward point!. 118/3
Benny Howell2022011.0032100
Kane Richardson403719.2586000
5.5 to JM Vince, edged and gone! That extra pace does the trick, and this time on a much tighter line. Real kick off the deck from the cross-seam delivery, 149kph, and Vince's attempt to run the ball down through third man ends up in the keeper's gloves!. 40/2

Steve O'Keefe301635.3361000
6.6 to SE Marsh, a hideous hoick from Marsh, but he was on a hiding to nothing. Full, straight, stump to stump, Marsh's head rocks back as he sizes up something optimistic over cow corner, but manages only to lose his off stump. I think it's fair to surmise that this contest is as cooked as a Christmas goose. 38/5
8.1 to JK Lalor, what is going orf out there! That's a total non-event of a dismissal. A wide full toss, too wide to reach with any conviction, so there is indeed no conviction in a lobbed poke to point! End this farce now!. 43/8
8.3 to P Hatzoglou, stand and slog, under-edge into the leg stump! Hatzoglou gallops to the pitch, doesn't get there, and miscues his mow, down into the crease. Ping go the zing bails for the umpteenth time. This is abject!. 43/9
Gurinder Sandhu10717.0031000
1.4 to AJ Finch, a firm-handed flog, and straight to mid-off! Just too tight to manipulate any angles this time, so Finch opts for raw power, and doesn't get it right. Scuffed to Christian on the edge of the circle, and that's a massive blow. 14/1
Ben Dwarshuis2.401344.8790100
2.1 to SB Harper, a leading edge and a brilliantly judged take at third man! Harper took it on first-up, aiming Dwarhuis over midwicket, but the left-arm liine suckered his intentions. It's a horrid swirling chance down towards the on-rushing O'Keefe, who does tremendously. This chase is holed below the waterline. 15/2
2.4 to RR Rossouw, another one bites the dust! Rossouw gallops to the pitch, looking to thrash Dwarhuis off his length, but he's managed only to scuff it in the air to third man, and it's another brilliant catch - albeit very different. This one is faster, and flatter, and Brathwaite judges his dive forward perfectly to scoop it off the turf!. 16/3
4.5 to BJ Webster, line and length on off stump, and a regulation nick to the keeper! Renegades are in freefall now, that's a proper wicket, reward for a probing line and a cunning change of pace. Webster leans forward to cover his off-stump, and is done by a hint of nibble off the deck. 25/4
10.4 to KW Richardson, round the wicket, t-i-m-b-e-r! All out for 60! That is an absolute massacre, and the Champions are properly up and running in this year's BBL after their false start on the opening night.. 60/10
Benjamin Manenti201105.5020000
Carlos Brathwaite201226.0050000
7.2 to J Fraser-McGurk, ping! Top of leg stump from Brathwaite, as FMcT plans for a wildly over-ambitious inside-out drive, and is beaten on the inside edge by a perfect length delivery. This is a terrible run chase. 42/6
7.6 to BAC Howell, stunning diving take at deep square and another one is gone! Two in the over for Brathwaite, and it's the extra nip on his length ball that does it. Howell gets inside the line for the pull but manages only a top edge. Silk has so much work to do, but judges his sprint and sprawl to perfection to scoop it up!. 43/7
