Fall of wickets: 1-20 (Matthew Short, 2.6 ov), 2-24 (Jake Weatherald, 3.5 ov), 3-32 (Adam Hose, 5.4 ov), 4-98 (Chris Lynn, 12.3 ov), 5-99 (Colin de Grandhomme, 12.6 ov), 6-122 (Harry Nielsen, 16.1 ov), 7-128 (Thomas Kelly, 17.5 ov), 8-129 (Wes Agar, 18.1 ov), 9-139 (Rashid Khan, 19.4 ov)
2.6 to MW Short, straight up and Davies takes it at cover! Back of a length and it hurries Short as he tries to pull, it goes straight up off the top edge, Davies barely has to move at cover as it floats down into his safe hands. 20/1
16.1 to HJ Nielsen, Slapped off the bottom, taken at mid-off! It was a 108 kph ball on a slightly back of length outside off. Nielsen had the width but not the pace as he looked to get it flat in the gap or over the fielder.. 122/6
18.1 to WA Agar, Slashed, it is off the bottom and is taken by deep third! The ball was on a length just outside off. Agar stayed leg side and looked to cut it aerially. The ball bounced high and went off the edge to the right. Sandhu ran across to the left, almost overran it but was able to take it while sliding across.. 129/8
3.5 to J Weatherald, miscues to midwicket! Shorter length but like Short's dismissal maybe not quite short enough to pull, he tried to go over midwicket but miscued off the toe of the bat and it balloons to Sangha on the circle. 24/2
19.4 to Rashid Khan, Inswinging yorker cleans up Rashid!. It seared in, moved in the air. Rashid was hanging back but the ball did not slow down. The batter tried to guide it to deep third but missed it.. 139/9
5.4 to AJ Hose, Excellent catch by Sandhu at deep third! Length ball on off, he tries to pull but again it's not the length, he gets a top edge that flies to deep third, three men run towards it but Sandhu is there and he takes a superb catch as it swirled away from him late. 32/3
17.5 to T Kelly, Wow, top-of-off special if there ever was one! It was a full ball (slot, in T20 terms) but bamboozled Kelly by pitching around leg, zipping away, beating the attempted straight drive and clipping off stump and racing to the third fence. The ball did not lose pace at all. Sams leaps in celebration. 128/7
12.3 to CA Lynn, Skied right up, taken by the keeper! Lynn was charging again, got a back of length ball outside off. Lynn was coming down and looked to go over the leg side. Hit it on the splice a few centimetres below the sticker. The keeper went diagonally to his left and got it.. 98/4
12.6 to C de Grandhomme, Soft dismissal to send CFG back! Length around off, the batter was standing across and clipped it in the air. Went at a comfortable height, around the chest, Davies at midwicket.. 99/5

Fall of wickets: 1-2 (Matthew Gilkes, 0.3 ov), 2-5 (Rilee Rossouw, 1.2 ov), 3-5 (Jason Sangha, 1.4 ov), 4-7 (Alex Hales, 2.1 ov), 5-9 (Daniel Sams, 2.5 ov), 6-9 (Alex Ross, 3.1 ov), 7-10 (Chris Green, 4.2 ov), 8-10 (Gurinder Sandhu, 4.5 ov), 9-14 (Oliver Davies, 5.2 ov), 10-15 (Brendan Doggett, 5.5 ov)
0.3 to M Gilkes, screamer from Hose at point! Shorter length and spinning away, Gilkes backs away and has his weight going the wrong way, he slices a cut in the air but low to Hose's right and he takes a beauty! Plucks it low to the ground at full stretch. 2/1
1.2 to RR Rossouw, one hander from Short at slip! Wow! A hanger! Shorter length and climbing outside off, Rossouw cuts but gets a top edge, can't get on top of the bounce, it flies high to Short's right and he leaps up at full stretch with the right hand and plucks it! 141kph and he takes a one handed screamer!. 5/2
1.4 to JJS Sangha, nicked off! Thornton on fire! Nielsen takes a good catch to his right! Fuller and wide of off, not a half volley, Sangha thrashes at a drive on the up but it shapes away late, he gets a thick edge and Nielsen tumbles to his right to pouch it with two hands. 5/3
3.1 to AI Ross, Another outside edge! A peach! 137kph, back of a length, fourth stump line, climbing and leave Ross as he pokes at it with minimal footwork and another thin edge flies comfortably through to Nielsen. 9/6
5.2 to O Davies, caught behind! Thornton has four! Full and wide, seam up again, he tried to thrash a drive but his feet went outside leg and another thin edge is gleefully taken by Nielsen. 14/9
5.5 to B Doggett, Driven in the air, finds point! Strikers are pumped as they charge and jump in delight! Was a back of length ball around off. Doggett went outside leg and looked to open up the off side. Sliced it to the bread basket at point.. 15/10
2.1 to AD Hales, caught behind! Another poke and another edge! A nothing shot. Full length wide of off, Hales just poked at it trying to glide it to third man and got a thin edge to Nielsen.. 7/4
2.5 to DR Sams, bowled! Off the thigh guard and around the legs! Crazy! That is so unlucky. Back of a length angled into the thigh pad, but it's hit the bottom corner of the thigh pad that is where the gap is for the top of the pad, it hits that bottom edge and ricochets onto the base of leg stump!. 9/5
4.2 to CJ Green, caught behind! Crazy! Fuller and tighter to off, tempting the drive with the seam up, it just nips away a fraction and catches the edge as he drives hard at it. A simple catch for Nielsen. This is ridiculous. 10/7
4.5 to GS Sandhu, nicked to first slip! Another beautiful delivery. Full length, seam up, fourth stump angled across, he drives with his weight back and his feet anchored, gets a healthy edge and it floats to Short at first slip and he pouches it easily.. 10/8
