Gurinder Sandhu201316.5062010
0.4 to JM Clarke, beautiful bowling! Test-match line and length, nip and bounce on a full length, on and around off stump, a genuine nick as Clarke is lured outside the line and fences a flying edge to the keeper. 4/1
Chris Green401924.75101010
18.1 to HWR Cartwright, two in two! Another drag-down, another scuffed pull. another easy grab at mid-on. This is ... sub-optimal. 112/6
18.4 to NM Coulter-Nile, ugly flat launch, swallowed at mid-off! Slower, wider, tempting the new man to have a swipe. He does just that, with no base and even less timing, a huge leading edge, high into the covers. This innings is disintegrating. 112/7
Daniel Sams302719.0043000
3.5 to C Kellaway, driven without conviction, on the back foot, and spooned to point! That's a loose stroke, but reward for Sams' persistence outside off, Kellaway threw his hands into the stroke, way in front of his body and had no power as the ball looped low to a diving Ross. 23/2
Nathan McAndrew401804.50100010
Usman Qadir402436.0090100
5.6 to MP Stoinis, huge wicket! Another attempted launch from Stoinis as Qadir tosses it up once more, he attempts to drag his stroke to leg, but gets a steepling leading edge, out to the sub Davies, running back from point who clings on over his shoulder to deepen Stars' gloom. 35/3
13.2 to TF Rogers, tossed up, and slapped to mid-off! Rogers' eyes lit up for that one, believing it was there for the launch, but he was beaten a touch in flight for Green to pouch a simple chance in his midriff. 84/4
17.6 to BJ Webster, drags it down, but Webster can't capitalise! Skids on flat, into a big wind-up, a floppy scuff to mid-on ends another half-started knock. Stars are spluttering. 112/5

Luke Wood3.503318.60103120
1.3 to DA Warner, bouncer on the stumps, goes to pull and splices a top edge high over midwicket in the ring. Simple catch taken.. 4/1
Nathan Coulter-Nile402917.2593020
9.6 to O Davies, length ball outside off, slashes this flat to deep third man, fielder comes in 10 yards off the rope and lunges forward to take a sharp catch on his knees.. 49/4
Adam Zampa402536.25100200
5.6 to JJS Sangha, clever from Zampa! Flighted more on a good length on middle stump, Sangha took a step down the track to flick and is beaten by the turn. Quick work getting the bails off. His foot was only outside the crease for a fraction. He didn't charge down the wicket, was more of a walk through flick attempt but he was foxed.. 31/2
11.5 to AI Ross, bullseye! Castled by a googly! It was pitched on a good length on fourth stump, very little footwork from Ross, who shuffled back quite late after being indecisive on the length, flicked across the line and got nothing on it as the ball knocked back the top of off.. 60/5
16.4 to DR Sams, bullseye! Zampa zips this in fuller on middle but also a touch quicker and it skids flat past a slog sweep crashing into the middle of middle stump.. 104/7
Beau Webster30812.66110000
8.6 to M Gilkes, fullish length on fifth stump, goes for a big heave after the pressure had been building at both ends, thin edge through to the keeper.. 41/3
