Jason Behrendorff402626.50103010
12.1 to SD Heazlett, taken at short fine leg! And the surge strikes for the bowlers. A good short ball, pace off, he went for the the pull, cramped for room, and loops off the glove. Neatly taken. 104/2
12.5 to JJ Peirson, round the wicket, another short one pulled to short fine leg!. This followed him outside leg stump, Peirson gets a top edge as he pulls, a simple catch this time. Big over. 108/3
David Payne403719.2583200
1.6 to J Brown, the carnage is over from Brown! Length ball on fifth stump, tries to heave this with a cross-bat shot over mid-on but miscues a slower ball at 119 kph and it floats up gently to Tye who backpedals five yards back from the ring at mid-on and does a bunny hop to latch onto a head high catch.. 25/1
Matthew Kelly403729.2593200
18.3 to M Bryant, skied high into the air, and Inglis takes it running towards square leg...was a short ball that Bryant went to pull, took a top edge. End of a terrific little innings. 159/5
18.4 to MG Neser, and this goes miles in the air off the toe end and it's another catch for Inglis. Short of a length again, Neser aiming a big swing to the leg side. 159/6
Aaron Hardie302719.0041110
14.4 to NA McSweeney, taken low at deep cover! Backed to leg then sliced a drive over the covers, very well judged looking into the sun. Down by his bootlaces. 117/4
Cooper Connolly10404.0020000
Andrew Tye4042110.5094240
19.5 to JJ Bazley, a slower ball full toss, whipped high into the leg side and it's well held at deep midwicket. 169/7

Michael Neser3.2038011.4064201
Xavier Bartlett403117.7582100
16.3 to JP Inglis, full and wide, sliced to deep cover! Well caught. Inglis had to end up reaching for this, came from low down on the bat, and Heazlett made good ground. 134/4
Spencer Johnson403719.2585000
7.5 to AM Hardie, Heazlett intercepts a bullet practically Ace Ventura style in his teeth at deep backward square leg! Short on the legs, Hardie laces a pull with ferocity flat behind square. But he picks out Heazlett who is standing 15 yards in from the rope trying to cut off any twos and he reaches up in front of his face moving to his right to knife this. That shot had plenty of heat on it. Still smoking out of Heazlett's hands. 10/10 scale of difficulty catch in my book. Sensational.. 54/3
James Bazley4042010.5074200
Matthew Kuhnemann402817.0042000
6.6 to CT Bancroft, charges this and lofts a drive to Neser on the rope at long-off! Kuhnemann flights this plenty for his slowest delivery of the over landing full on fifth stump, tries to go straight over the bowler's head with Neser fielding extremely wide at long-off but gets under it way too much to allow Neser time to cover 25 yards moving to his right and settles three yards inside the rope to take a head height catch.. 48/2
