Will Sutherland302719.0052120
12.3 to O Davies, Sutherland gets him! And what a wonderful delivery to get the form batsman. Yorker, on leg, Davies can't dig it out, and it pegs leg stump back. The end of a whirlwind innings. 129/3
Peter Hatzoglou403829.50106100
6.4 to AD Hales, through him! Length ball, stump to stump, and Hales swivels to pull. Ball goes under his bat, and takes the top of the stumps. 71/2
16.1 to DR Sams, shouts of catch it and taken at deep midwicket! Full on off, and he looked to clobber this with the turn. Mistimed, and Richardson makes no mistake. 172/4
Imad Wasim403508.7552110
Kane Richardson403328.25103100
18.3 to CJ Green, short ball, on off. Tries to pull, but sliced instead and the keeper runs in to complete the catch. 186/6
18.4 to CJ Ferguson, full on off, and he offers the full face of the bat. Lofts it straight, and it's got four written all over it, but Sutherland from long on dives full length to his left, and takes a stunning catch that Ferguson cannot believe has happened. Terrific catch. 186/7
Zak Evans3036012.0042300
Mohammad Nabi2035117.5020500
5.6 to UT Khawaja, full on middle. Down on one knee, and hammered to deep midwicket...but Evans puts in the dive there to take a screamer! That's the breakthrough. 70/1

Adam Milne302127.00104000
3.6 to SB Harper, third time unlucky! Quick, good length on off, and he's beaten by the pace trying to play an uppish drive. Feather edge, and well taken by Holt behind the stumps. 29/2
11.4 to Z Evans, slower ball, fullish outside off. Through the drive too early, and mistimed to Cutting at mid on. 75/9
Daniel Sams2021110.5042110
10.5 to W Sutherland, taken by mid on tracking back! Full on middle, and he goes for a big shot. Mistimed, and Hales takes a difficult catch. 69/8
Nathan McAndrew201718.5053000
2.1 to SE Marsh, McAndrew's golden form continues. Good length on off, and he looks to slog leg side. Sliced, in the air, and Cutting at cover makes no mistake. 13/1
Tanveer Sangha3.201444.20121010
4.5 to AJ Finch, is that the game? Finch makes room to cut, but he's popped this straight to Ferguson at short cover. 33/3
6.4 to BJ Webster, caught and bowled! A classic legspinner's wicket. Loopy ball, not full enough. Tries to punch with the straight bat, but played with hard hands. Sangha dives to his left, wobbles, but recovers well enough to hold on. His second scalp tonight. 53/4
8.5 to Mohammad Nabi, hang time and taken by Davies at square leg. Sangha goes stump to stump with a short-ish ball, and the pull takes a giant top edge. That's Sangha's third. 60/6
12.2 to P Hatzoglou, full on off, and he goes for a wild slog. Doesn't have the distance and taken at long on! Sangha takes 4/14 and The Thunder win by 129 runs. 80/10
Chris Green20723.5070010
7.5 to RR Rossouw, straight to the fielder! Full, on off, and he goes for the expansive slog sweep. Struck well, too well, in fact. Easy catch for the man at deep midwicket. 58/5
9.1 to Imad Wasim, that's seven down! Wasim goes for innovation, trying to switch-hit a shot over the left-hander's short third man. Top edge, and Sangha is under the catch. 62/7
