Adam Zampa302909.6652200
Qais Ahmad401724.25130110
4.5 to M Gilkes, bowled behind his legs! Gilkes shuffles way too far across his stumps to sweep with an open space tempting him behind square. But Qais pitches this far too full for the shot and middle stump is knocked back with a stock legbreak. Poor shot.. 33/2
11.5 to SW Billings, full just outside off. Billings wants to go inside out over cover but ends up slicing it due to the exaggerated legspin. Coulter-Nile at point runs back, and takes it from just outside the circle. Billings' horror outing ends for a 19-ball 9. 65/4
Glenn Maxwell10717.0021000
3.2 to SM Whiteman, flighted straighter and fuller on middle, Whiteman backs away again to drive but it straightens enough to clip the edge on the way to Clarke behind the stumps, who juggles initially before holding onto the chance on the second attempt.. 24/1
Andre Russell403809.50103300
Brody Couch402626.5090100
6.1 to AD Hales, short on the stumps, backs away to uppercut over third man but is cramped for room and a thin edge goes through to the keeper.. 40/3
19.5 to DR Sams, rewarded for smart bowling as this short ball angles into Sams. Cramped, attempts the pull, and hit in the air. Qais at deep backward square runs in and takes an easy one. A deserved second wicket. 149/5

Nathan McAndrew403719.25100400
2.1 to JM Clarke, edged and taken! McAndrew strikes first ball. Full just outside off. Clarke tries to pick it off his pads to the leg side but the ball swings away after pitching. Takes the edge as Clarke plays down the wrong line. 15/1
Ben Cutting201718.5043000
4.2 to NCR Larkin, the new bat brings a wicket! Between a good length and full. Larkin walks into a flick, and he meets the ball with hard hands. Straight to midwicket as the ball pops up. McAndrew takes a reverse-cup catch. 24/2
Tanveer Sangha412025.00140200
11.2 to MP Stoinis, short on the legs, heaved to deep midwicket but doesn't middle it as it climbs up the bat on him. Sams tracks 25 yards to his right and lunges with a tumbling effort to hold on to a sharp catch on the run.. 83/3
11.3 to GJ Maxwell, flights this up full on fourth stump to tempt Maxwell into a heave across the line. Not full enough for the shot and it spins across to produce a top edge that swirls gently to long-off. Simple catch for Cutting 15 yards in from the rope.. 83/4
