Fall of wickets: 1-50 (Chris Lynn, 6.3 ov), 2-53 (Nathan McSweeney, 7.2 ov), 3-82 (Lachlan Pfeffer, 12.3 ov), 4-103 (Sam Heazlett, 15.5 ov), 5-130 (Ben Duckett, 17.6 ov), 6-145 (James Bazley, 19.5 ov)
17.6 to BM Duckett, premeditates a reverse sweep, but misses badly as Zampa bowls this flat on a good length on leg stump, misses the shot and leg stump is knocked back.. 130/5
19.5 to JJ Bazley, floats this full and very wide, almost on the guideline. Bazley stays stationary in the crease and reaches out a very long way trying to slog this over the leg side, slices a top edge to backward point for a simple catch on the ring by Rainbird.. 145/6
7.2 to NA McSweeney, good length ball skids on to thud into the back leg in front of off stump defending down the wrong line. McSweeney shuffles back and forth down the pitch keeping his head buried so he doesn't have to look at the umpire. Big lbw shout is upheld. He was hit in front of the stumps but quite high over the pads on the thigh. Height looked to be a big issue but McSweeney doesn't show any dissent.. 53/2
15.5 to SD Heazlett, Maxwellball to the max in the field! Candidate for catch of the tournament pushing Fraser-McGurk out of the way from early in the summer. Full length ball on leg stump, Heazlett backs away to shovel this over mid-on. Maxwell runs back from the ring and leaps up with his left hand, his weaker hand, and times his leap perfectly to clutch on full extension before tumbling to the turf. Maxwell puts his hand over his mouth. Even he can't believe he pulled it off.. 103/4
6.3 to CA Lynn, charges a good length ball slanted wider across Lynn on off stump, Lynn charges again for another leg side heave but is nowhere near the pitch and skies this high over extra cover. Coulter-Nile backpedals a few strides on the ring and takes this tumbling backward.. 50/1
12.3 to LD Pfeffer, short on middle, shuffles way across his stumps and pulls this straight to deep fine leg. This time Larkin comes forward just enough to get his hands underneath it while crouching low with knees on the turf and clutches on.. 82/3

Fall of wickets: 1-104 (Glenn Maxwell, 10.4 ov), 2-110 (Joe Clarke, 11.2 ov)
10.4 to GJ Maxwell, full on middle and leg, Maxwell tries to whip this very fine and winds up picking out Lynn at short fine leg, who takes a neck high catch in self defense. It was coming at a rapid pace and he barely had to move. Maxwell can't believe his luck. Three yards either side and it was a boundary.. 104/1
11.2 to JM Clarke, slower ball lands full on middle, charges and tries to heave over mid-on but skies this to the man on the ring. The fielder backpedals and takes this with ease.. 110/2
