Sam Elliott302909.6663100
Sam Rainbird4059114.7546320
18.1 to JR Philippe, Philippe went cold off strike for much of the previous two overs and the dream of a maiden BBL ton has been extinguished altogether now. Will have to settle for an 11th half-century. Slower ball from Rainbird is heaved to deep midwicket. Easy catch taken on his haunches five yards inside the rope.. 192/2

Adam Zampa403408.5064000
Brody Couch3036212.0034110
19.2 to DT Christian, full and wide, slaps this in the air toward Hilton Cartwright on the cover sweeper rope, who tracks 15 yards to his right and pulls off a tumbling catch at thigh height.. 206/3
19.4 to TK Curran, slower ball on a good length on sixth stump at 125 kph, Curran mistimes this high to long-off off the toe and a simple catch for Nick Larkin 15 yards inside the rope taken at head height.. 207/4
Glenn Maxwell201718.5012000
9.4 to JM Vince, picks out cover! Zampa holds on. Vince flushed this but just didn't get under it and picks out the man on the circle. Maxwell is delighted.. 90/1

Steve O'Keefe401443.50141010
0.3 to JM Clarke, sliced to backward point! Beautifully bowled. Tossed up wide of off, some loop and drop and some spin, he tried to drive on the up, slices it off a thick edge to backward point. Easy catch for Kerr.. 2/1
0.5 to NCR Larkin, given LBW! He tries to sweep a ball pitching on off, it straightens enough and holds up, he plays over the top and gets hit on the front pad. The umpire is up with the appeal! It look straight enough. Height the only query as it did bounce. But it looked good. 4/2
8.3 to SM Elliott, charges a flighted ball on off, doesn't get to the pitch and skies this toward Abbott at cow corner. Could easily have dropped this on purpose in search of his own five-for but decides not to play a practical joke on O'Keefe and pouches it easily 15 yards inside the rope.. 47/8
8.4 to A Zampa, another charge from Zampa. Another wicket for O'Keefe. Zampa telegraphed this too early and O'Keefe reacts by dragging this delivery wide outside off. Easy stumping for Philippe with Zampa making no effort to get back in after a flail in vain.. 47/9
Sean Abbott301434.66110100
3.1 to GJ Maxwell, clean bowled! A big heave across the line undoes Maxwell. It was full and speared into middle and off, Maxwell tried to flick it up and over forward square and missed it completely. Stumps were lit up!. 18/3
7.1 to BJ Webster, Nicked behind! Back of a length, fourth stump and maybe just leaves him a touch, he pushes from the crease and gets a little edge to the keeper. Beautifully bowled.. 45/6
7.3 to SL Rainbird, caught behind again! Shorter length, climbing outside off, he tries to flay this through point, he gets a thin edge through to Philippe and it's another simple catch.. 45/7
Chris Jordan201507.5081010
Tom Curran1.10917.7121000
11.1 to BL Couch, slower ball skied over point ends the match. Couch way out in front of this delivery and skies this over the ring. Simple catch. Game over. Kerr denied an opportunity at completing a hat-trick in a game where the result was never in doubt!. 61/10
Hayden Kerr10626.0031000
5.5 to PM Nevill, caught magnificently by O'Keefe at deep third! Full and wide, he flashes hard at a drive and slices a thick edge wide of deep third, O'Keefe runs around and takes a superb rolling catch. 41/4
5.6 to HWR Cartwright, picks out deep square! Cartwright is so stiff! He crushed a pull shot flat and hard but straight to Vince standing on the rope! He holds on above his head. But if he it it two foot higher it was taking out someone in the crowd. 41/5
