Mark Steketee403819.5093201
16.1 to DP Hughes, ballooned to short fine leg! It was a short of a length ball on leg stump, but bowled with a change of pace. Hughes is into his attempted pull early, as the ball takes the higher side of the bat to lob toward the man there, perhaps beaten by the lack of pace with the ball seemingly holding on to the pitch. Heat strike first ball of the Power Surge. 142/4
Michael Neser403939.7555010
6.6 to JR Philippe, straight to long-on! That was struck very nicely, but when flat to the fielder and didn't have the elevation. Well-judged catch from Duckett right next to the rope. 63/2
19.4 to J Avendano, finds deep square leg! That was the longer side of the ground, and so would have been always difficult to clear. Although the ball was full and on the stumps - in fact right in the slot - Avendano was beaten by the lack of pace, with the bat turning in his hands too. And that longer fence meant it went sailing to the fielder. 176/5
19.6 to DT Christian, sliced to extra cover! The man was positioned right on the edge of the circle, and completed the grab. It was a full delivery outside off, as he opened the bat face to try and loft that over cover, but got that right into the fielder's hands there The innings ends with a wicket, with two wickets in the final over. 178/6

Marnus Labuschagne302317.6631000
13.3 to MC Henriques, little tickle behind, and gone! That was bowled on a slightly fullish length, and was slower and flatter outside off. Henriques went to have a poke at that, but the ball seemed to have bounced more than he guessed it would, and he ended edging to the keeper, who was quick to react. Marnus is up in delight, and Heat have a breakthrough. 120/3

Steve O'Keefe402115.2570010
16.5 to JJ Peirson, finds deep midwicket with his sweep! It was a full ball on off, and he went down on his back knee to try and clear the leg-side fence, but that looked like being the longer boundary. But an attacking innings comes to an end. 127/5
Ben Dwarshuis403629.00113132
5.2 to M Labuschagne, edged, brilliant catch! That's a blinder from Philippe. Full and pushed across outside off, Labuschagne goes for the drive and that's the end of his day as Philippe springs to his right at full length. 28/2
17.4 to M Bryant, knocks the off stump back! A bit of dancing around by Bryant, who first makes room outside leg, but then realises that the ball is full and on the stumps on off. He then tries to reverse-ramp perhaps out of desperation due to a lack of boundaries, but is beaten, with him almost preparing to play leg side. Gone!. 132/6
Sean Abbott403919.7565010
18.6 to MG Neser, finds fine leg with his slog! That ball was on a back of a length on middle, and near about in the slot to hammer it away to the on side. Neser did go for the heave, but ended up skying that to the fielder, with the longer side of the boundary coming into play again. Abbott finishes off with a wicket. 142/7
Hayden Kerr402335.7592000
3.4 to CA Lynn, hammered, but straight to cover! He struck that powerfully but Lyon grabs it above his head. Kerr rolled his fingers across that one. 22/1
7.3 to BM Duckett, well taken! That was hammered back. Short of a length, Duckett swats it straight back down the pitch aiming to the leg side and Kerr does very well in his followthrough. 40/3
19.3 to MT Steketee, appeal again for leg before, and given this time! A real toe-crushing yorker on leg which is almost dipping on the batter, who has almost opened himself up. The ball eventually strikes his left toe in front on of middle and leg, and bang! Kerr has his third. 147/8
Nathan Lyon403117.7542000
8.2 to SD Heazlett, edged, taken at slip! Lovely bowling. Classy from Lyon. Angled in from round the wicket, straightens and takes the edge which is nicely held by the captain. Reward for an attacking fielding position. 43/4
