Pat Cummins403809.5095101
Mitchell Starc401934.75130100
17.1 to GH Bodi, appeal for leg before, and Starc strikes first ball on return, Bodi going across and looking to work to leg, Starc angling it in from over the stumps, it swung in too, was that impact within the line of off? replays show it indeed was. 120/5
17.6 to J Symes, late inswing works for Starc again, full delivery, Symes wants to slog it square to leg from outside off, the ball moves in sharply, sneaks between bat and pad, and takes out off stump. 123/6
19.4 to AM Phangiso, makes room outside leg, Starc goes full on the stumps, Phangiso swings hard, and short extra cover takes the catch. 136/9
Josh Hazlewood411824.50150100
2.2 to AN Petersen, Petersen is gone, big charge to a back of a length ball which bounced and straightened to take the edge off his slog and Haddin takes the gift. 25/1
10.4 to ND McKenzie, one more goes, Lions losing their way slightly, McKenzie hasn't looked comfortable, stays in the crease and prods a back of a length ball through to the keeper, it held its line a tad, and that was enough. 81/3
Shane Watson402526.25113010
7.1 to Q de Kock, Watson is bowling on another pitch, he's given two in his first over, and now struck off the first ball of his second, length ball, angled across, just outside off, very slight away movement, de Kock goes for a big drive, and Haddin accepts the healthy edge. 57/2
18.2 to Sohail Tanvir, short ball, into the body, hooked, catch straight to fine leg. 124/7
Dominic Thornely1014014.0032100
Moises Henriques301816.0071010
13.3 to Z de Bruyn, Haddin in business again, Lions are leaving all the work to Bodi, de Bruyn takes a step out, tries to steer one to third man and finds the gloves of the keeper. 91/4

Chris Morris3035111.6676100
17.5 to MC Henriques, that has jagged back in sharply from short of a length, Henriques looking to chop it towards third man, ends up playing on, it stayed low too, that has done him in. 129/5
