Michael Neser402827.0071030
17.6 to BJ Dwarshuis, fullish length on the legs, goes for a heave to deep square leg but doesn't get much power behind it and the ball hangs up for a simple catch at deep midwicket taken 15 yards in from the rope.. 98/7
19.2 to SA Abbott, length ball on middle, heaves this toward deep midwicket. Abbott got a big chunk of this but the boundary is much deeper on that side of the ground tonight and it hangs up for Bryant to take an easy catch three yards in from the rope at chest height.. 110/9
Spencer Johnson402837.00104000
3.1 to KR Patterson, bounced out! Short on the stumps at 143 kph, goes to pull but doesn't try to keep it down at all and it floats off more of a top edge to Kuhnemann at deep square leg and a simple catch is taken 10 yards in from the rope after shuffling 10 yards left.. 27/1
16.3 to DT Christian, bullseye! Good length ball on middle, Christian has an impetuous heave across the line and misses, middle stump is smashed halfway up.. 91/6
18.6 to H Kerr, length ball at 138 kph, Kerr tries a big heave to midwicket but is through the shot a touch early and it flutters gently off the toe of the bat back to Johnson, who waits for it to come back to him at chest height and holds on with ease.. 108/8
Xavier Bartlett201507.5031010
James Bazley20603.0060000
Nathan McSweeney402115.2560000
11.6 to JC Silk, fullish length on fourth stump, backs away trying to create room to slice this behind point to go wide of the sweeper but gets it way too fine and a chance carries low to Brown diving forward on the ring at short third man who takes a sharp catch at shin height.. 70/4
Matthew Kuhnemann401734.25101000
6.1 to JR Philippe, full on fourth stump, goes to sweep and misses. Big appeal for a combo of caught behind and lbw is turned down. Didn't really look like a chance for either. Heat have called for an extremely speculative review. The ball has brushed the glove and the third umpire has called it not out for lbw, completely oblivious to the fact that Peirson held onto the ball for a caught behind appeal. The Heat protest on field and remind the umpires that the ball was caught and it's sent back to the third umpire a second time, after which it is correctly overturned.. 43/2
8.2 to MC Henriques, arm ball darted in quicker and flatter on a good length on middle, Henriques goes back and across trying to flick to midwicket and misses. Big lbw shout goes up and upheld immediately. Henriques was already starting to walk off before the umpire's finger went up. Hard to get any more obvious.. 53/3
12.5 to DP Hughes, bullseye! Good length ball on off stump, goes back to pull and the ball holds up in the pitch and keeps low underneath an attempted pull to smash off stump three-quarters of the way up. That wicket was set up by the diving stop on the previous ball to keep him on strike.. 76/5

Steve O'Keefe403017.50122200
9.4 to JJ Peirson, fullish length on off, teases him into a flick across the line to midwicket and a leading edge floats to backward point where Christian doesn't have to move for a head height chance.. 54/4
Sean Abbott411313.25191100
14.4 to M Bryant, what a ridiculous shot! Fullish length on off stump, goes for a huge heave and skies this to long-off. The fielder charges in 25 yards off the rope and takes this settling on his haunches.. 86/6
Izharulhaq Naveed402827.0083010
6.5 to NA McSweeney, fullish length on seventh stump, sucks him into playing away from his body without any footwork and a thin edge is well held by Philippe.. 41/3
10.1 to SR Hain, full on middle, another attempted flick across the line produces yet another leading edge. Naveed hurls his body to his right after stopping his follow-through tailing left off the pitch to change direction and intercepts this at knee height in front of the stumps.. 56/5
Ben Dwarshuis3.202016.0061000
5.5 to J Brown, length ball angled in toward fourth stump, Brown backs away from leg stump and tries to smash this on the up over cover but a thick edge goes through to Philippe at waist height.. 39/2
