Fall of wickets: 1-21 (Sam Harper, 3.2 ov), 2-30 (Thomas Rogers, 4.2 ov), 3-99 (Glenn Maxwell, 12.2 ov), 4-115 (Marcus Stoinis, 14.1 ov), 5-149 (Hilton Cartwright, 16.6 ov), 6-168 (Jonathan Merlo, 18.4 ov), 7-172 (Beau Webster, 19.3 ov), 8-172 (Usama Mir, 19.4 ov), 9-172 (Mark Steketee, 19.5 ov), 10-172 (Liam Dawson, 19.6 ov)
3.2 to SB Harper, over the wicket to Harper, lobbed up with a lot of flight on a fullish length and gets marked turn and he tries to shuffle across his stumps in a bid to scoop it over the keeper's head but failed to execute the shot. He was out of his crease, keeper did well to quickly whip off the bails, third umpire is checking if he managed to ground the bat or not before the bails were dislodged. It's close, in fact it's very close. It's O-U-T on the big screen but to me, it looks like the bat was grounded before the bails went flying; maybe a hurried decision from the umpires. 21/1
14.1 to MP Stoinis, Gone! Massive wicket. fraction short on middle and off and kept low, he hits in the air to midwicket who snaffles it down his throat. That's a useful wicket because he is a dangerous customer, bowler did well to stick to his guns and bowl straight with pace. 115/4
4.2 to TF Rogers, Sangha at short fine leg takes a screamer! shorter length on off, he leans forward and mistimes it to Sangha who reacts well to pouch it, so two wickets down in no time and it will bring Maxwell to the crease.. 30/2
19.3 to BJ Webster, tantalisingly in the air, Sams is going after it towards midwicket, good hustle towards the ball, keeping his eyes locked on the ball and then he swooped like a falling start to take the catch, Webster goes after making a crucial fifty. 172/7
19.4 to Usama Mir, slower ball, back of length on off, miscues the skier and holes out to long-on, Green hangs on to it brilliantly. Sams on a hattrick. 172/8
19.6 to LA Dawson, No way! Sams is on fire! Can you believe it? Four wickets in four balls, what more can you ask for as a captain? sensational bowling from Sams! Slow ball on a length attacking the stumps, Dawson goes for a wild hoick and ends up rearranging his stumps, Sams you can do no wrong!. 172/10
12.2 to GJ Maxwell, clattered the stumps! 130kph searing yorker rearranged the stumps, a pitch-perfect yorker, he seldom gets it wrong and arms aloft in jubilation - the Pakistan speedster hasn't really put a foot wrong so far in his spell. Perhaps a little bit of reverse swing and he tries to smash him down the ground but it's a brute of a delivery. 99/3
16.6 to HWR Cartwright, demolishes him with a yorker! getting it right in the blockhole and under the bat and smashing into middle and off stump, he exposed his stumps and Zaman was right on money. 149/5
18.4 to J Merlo, rams the yorker on off, he extends his hand out and tries to reach for it, playing away from his body and carves it away straight to Ross at point who takes a sharp low catch and Zaman Khan adds another to his wicket tally. 168/6

Fall of wickets: 1-78 (Alex Hales, 7.2 ov), 2-79 (Cameron Bancroft, 7.4 ov), 3-108 (Oliver Davies, 11.6 ov), 4-138 (Alex Ross, 14.5 ov), 5-150 (Jason Sangha, 16.1 ov)
14.5 to AI Ross, tries an adventurous shot and it didn't come through, steps across his stumps and worked away straight to Usama Mir at fine leg who gobbles it up gleefully. 138/4
7.2 to AD Hales, dragged on! 122kph inducing a false shot, tight lines and nagging length, goes through the pull early and ends up chopping it back onto his stumps. After a fifty, Webster does the job with the ball in hand, breaks this dangerous-looking partnership. 78/1
7.4 to CT Bancroft, top edge and another one bites the dust! looks like it's Webster's day. Thumped hard into the deck and gets fierce bounce, played a jailbreak shot, he was in a tangle though because it was a well-directed shortish ball on middle, he swivelled and wasn't on top of the bounce, miscued it. 79/2
11.6 to O Davies, changed in pace does the trick! length ball on off, gives himself room and tries to clear mid-off but couldn't get underneath it and Rauf takes a simple catch while moving back. Davies has to go, another vital and timely breakthrough for Stars. 108/3
16.1 to JJS Sangha, oh my word! that is an unbelievable catch at point! unreal! back of a length outside off, he throws his hands at it and Dawson goes airborne and plucks it out of thin air, sensational stuff! Webster is on a hat-trick! Certainly, a strong contender for player of the match. 150/5
