Quotes from presentation

"The end of the first innings, we thought we gave away 15 too many," says MS Dhoni. "It happens in this format. We batted really well. Hussey and Faf batted brilliantly up front. After that Suresh Raina was aggressive and calculated throughout. If we hadn't lost me and Raina, it would have been closer."

"It was important t get a good start, and that's what we did today," says Brad Haddin. "We need to get better ad better with the tournament. We know it's a hard ground to defend so we needed all the runs in the last five overs. We are happy with the result, but it is important to get better with each game."

"It was a nice day out," says MoM Moises Henriques. "Very happy to get the win. It was very important to change the pace. I certainly thought towards the end the ball was easier to hit. They were right in it until the last couple of overs. Just shows how close this tournament is. Steve Smith is a great fielder. When Raina's shot went up, I was very happy to see him under it."

Sixers finish a comprehensive win. It was Henriques's match: lovely cameo with the bat, and the wickets of Raina, Dhoni and Badri

driven to long-on, they want the second, Smith's throw lands on a half-volley, which gives Yo Mahesh enough time to dive in

Starc to Ashwin, OUT

Ashwin is gone. Smith is superb on the boundary again. Moves across the stumps, gets a length ball, shovels it towards cow corner, but there is Smith in its way

":) - it was shoking commentary from Ganga ... i chuckled too [it was a mistimed querdle at best]." Luke, I hope you have not patented "querdle". That's a nice word to be used in comms

Watson to Ashwin, 1 leg bye

full, wide, Ashwin tries to sweep it, and is hit on the pad. Takes the leg-bye

"2 overs in a row! And people were worried our fast bowlers weren't going to get a proper preparation for the SA test series." James, these are small mercies of T20 theorymen

Watson to Jadeja, OUT

Jadeja slogs, Jadeja goes. Length ball, he just swings across it, and manages just a thick edge to cover

Starc to Ashwin, 2 runs

Watson has taken this too casually. Has he dropped a Karbon Smart T20 league match? Ashwin has got too much height on this, Watson runs back, and seems to have been put off by the man running in from long-on. Doesn't even get a touch on this

Starc to Ashwin, 2 runs

shovels this yorker-length delivery towards deep midwicket

Starc to Ashwin, FOUR runs

Ashwin keeps showing he is a good enough batsman to bat No. 7. Makes room, takes the length ball, chips it over point

W
Henriques to Dhoni, OUT

and now the captain departs too. Henriques seals the Man-of-the-Match award. I can see people growing this moustache to emulate Henriques now. Bouncer, on off, Dhoni has no room, pulls towards deep midwicket, and Hazelwood dives forward to take a special catch. Special, considering he is a fast bowler
