Fall of wickets: 1-24 (Joe Clarke, 2.6 ov), 2-31 (Thomas Rogers, 4.1 ov), 2-53* (Joe Burns, retired hurt), 3-54 (Marcus Stoinis, 8.3 ov), 4-83 (Hilton Cartwright, 12.3 ov), 5-84 (Nick Larkin, 12.5 ov), 6-93 (Luke Wood, 15.4 ov), 7-97 (Beau Webster, 16.3 ov), 8-115 (Nathan Coulter-Nile, 18.5 ov)
2.6 to JM Clarke, top edge, and nabbed by midwicket running back! Well judged by Sangha. Clarke took a step down the pitch, but Sandhu spotted that and banged it in short. The ball was rising on top of off, and Clarke mistimed a pull. The ball went high to midwicket, and Sangha completed a good catch. 24/1
15.4 to L Wood, ballooned to point, who tumbles to complete the catch! Rossouw there ran across to his right while keeping his eyes on the ball. Sandhu went for a slower ball again, and bowled full and wide of off. Wood just threw his bat at that away from his body, and ended up offering some catch practice. 93/6
12.3 to HWR Cartwright, pings the off stump at 140kph! Looked like being a bit too quick for Cartwright, who was sitting deep in the crease. But the length wasn't that full, as he had to take a stride down to what was a good length ball on off, and on the fuller side. It was shaping in too, and Cartwright missed his poke. 83/4
12.5 to NCR Larkin, flung to cover-point! The Power Surge actually leads to a slide for Stars. Ross just takes half a leap, and the ball arrives at a comfortable height. Short and very wide from Farooqi - and to add to that, it was a slower ball too - as Larkin had to reach out for it far away from his body. He lost his bottom hand too, and ended up fending it. 84/5
4.1 to TF Rogers, and Sams strikes first ball! The sun was beating down the eyes of the man at deep midwicket, but he still saw that well. Sams went short - and bowled a slower ball - just outside off, as Rogers waited for the ball to come on, before slapping a pull but in the end, finding the fielder. 31/2
18.5 to NM Coulter-Nile, skied to deep midwicket! The fielder waited and waited... before it came after a good few seconds. He had to keep his eyes on it all along, since the ball had gone very high, and there were the floodlights to distract him. Another hoick from Coulter-Nile off a fullish ball on middle, but this time he could only sky that, perhaps beaten by the slower ball. 115/8
16.3 to BJ Webster, launched down the ground... but to long-off! The confidence in the follow-through was such that it seemed headed for six, but alas. The ball was there in the slot all right on off, but Webster was deep in the crease, and the length seemed just a bit fuller than what he would have liked. Another one falls for Stars. 97/7
8.3 to MP Stoinis, goes slogging first ball, but finds short fine leg! Golden duck for Stoinis. Green went on a good length on off, and the ball was dipping too. Stoinis was down on his knees early, ready to slog sweep this to the leg side. But the ball took off from the top edge, and went to the right of short fine. 54/3

Fall of wickets: 1-0 (Matthew Gilkes, 0.2 ov), 2-0 (Rilee Rossouw, 0.3 ov), 3-28 (Alex Hales, 4.2 ov), 4-47 (Jason Sangha, 8.2 ov), 5-57 (Daniel Sams, 9.5 ov), 6-71 (Oliver Davies, 11.6 ov), 7-89 (Alex Ross, 14.4 ov), 8-115 (Chris Green, 19.1 ov), 9-115 (Fazalhaq Farooqi, 19.2 ov)
0.2 to M Gilkes, what a spectacular catch! Couch juggles twice, and the ball nearly pops out at short fine as he rolls over, but he manages to hold on somehow. Boult has a sheepish smile because he knows this was perhaps not the kind of delivery that deserves a wicket. Sprays one down leg, Gilkes flicks it nicely but he couldn't keep it down. What a Couch pouch that! . 0/1
0.3 to RR Rossouw, what is happening? That's two in two. Boult floats this full, Rossouw doesn't commit himself to the drive and checks his shot in the end, Coulter-Nile times his leap perfectly at mid-off to take that. Rossouw looked straight down the pitch, as if to suggest the ball had stopped on him.. 0/2
4.2 to AD Hales, oh, well! What have you done, Alex? Bowled by a full toss. Backs away to carve this behind point but ends up smashing this onto the stumps. Moved outside leg to steer it behind point but ended up getting a thin edge onto the off stump.. 28/3
9.5 to DR Sams, picks out long-on! Not very good batting under the circumstances. Sams swings this across the line but can't get enough power behind the shot. Simple catch.. 57/5
11.6 to O Davies, chopped on! Coulter-Nile belts out a roar. Davies goes for an expansive cut but is cramped for room. This was a cutter, and the lack of pace may have just have the ball hold up a touch. What a telling contribution Coulter-Nile is making here.. 71/6
19.1 to CJ Green, that's a second super catch that Couch has pulled off. Green thinks he's absolutely nailed this hit, Couch, who is 20 yards inside the ropes at long-off, has nearly misjudged it but ends up back-pedaling just a touch and then puts in a leap to grab the stunner. What a moment.. 115/8
19.2 to Fazalhaq Farooqi, hits bulls eye. Webster claims another. Farooqi is backing away to play an almighty heave but misses it altogether. The good'ol tailender's slog. Thunder right on the edge.. 115/9
8.2 to JJS Sangha, sets him up and gets him with a flipper! This one lands on a length around off and skids through to rush him into that feeble push, the off-stump takes a walk.. 47/4
14.4 to AI Ross, works his magic again, does Zampa. That's 100 BBL wickets for him. Ross is looking to play an expansive sweep but is beaten by sharp turn from middle and off. What a ball, what a bowler.. 89/7
