lordfolland: "When number 9 scores half the runs your top order should be disapointed" Absolutely, his heroics should not conceal what a shocking showing that was. Anyway, thanks for joining us here, and we'll see you soon again. Stay safe

Hatzoglou to Dwarshuis, 1 wide, OUT

skips down the track, and he sends it wide. Dwarshuis misses, and the keeper whips off the bails. The Scorchers have given the Sixers a real beating tonight, despite Dwarshuis's heroics

Tye to Dwarshuis, FOUR runs

into the gap at cow corner, four more! 24 off that over, and he moves to 66 off 28. Wonder what difference it would have made had he come in earlier, but the scoreline's nice and respectable, at least

18.5
Tye to Dwarshuis, no run

nudged to deep midwicket, and O'Keefe tells him he shouldn't take a single

18.4
4
Tye to Dwarshuis, FOUR runs

he's raging against the dying of the light. Carved nicely over extra cover for another four

18.3
6
Tye to Dwarshuis, SIX runs

smeared over midwicket for a huge, huge six. The sound of the bat! The Sixers are going down, but not without a spirited rearguard from Dwarshuis

18.2
4
Tye to Dwarshuis, FOUR runs

little inside edge brings him four to fine leg, and a half-century! 52 off 24 for Dwarshuis, and he's doing his reputation no harm

18.1
6
Tye to Dwarshuis, SIX runs

he's properly seeing the ball today. Picks up the slower ball early and it's tonked over long-off for another massive six

Behrendorff to Dwarshuis, 1 run

wide outside off, and Dwarshuis gets a single through the offside

Rose: "Honestly impressed they've limped to 100. Most of this innings was like watching a car crash in slow motion - horrifying but you can't take your eyes off it!"

6
Behrendorff to Dwarshuis, SIX runs

and that's a sensational shot. Right out of the meat for 111 metres! Well into the second tier; that may as well be worth 12

Dave : "Ricky Ponting thou is the best commentator on tv" He's sensational. Always sharp, insightful and respects the job he's doing

slower ball, beats him outside off stump

Jack: "I know it's been mentioned in this feed already today, but Maher's (and Fleming's) excitement at singles from attempted big swings vs his monotonous disinterest when there's a wicket is rampantly unprofessional "

Tye to Lyon, OUT

that Lyon resistance didn't last long! Spoons it to long-on, picking out Behrendorff almost perfectly. The last rites are about to be read
