Munaf Patel411724.25131000
5.1 to PM Nevill, Sixers have nominated the pull as their favourite poison. Nevill tries one to a delivery nearly not full enough, and lobs it down mid-on's throat. 40/2
5.3 to BJ Haddin, Patel is on fire here. Digs it in short again, provides Haddin with the room. I don't know if it is extra bounce or spongy bounce at work, but all Haddin manages with the cut is catching practice to cover-point. Hold on for a second. They are checking if the front foot has landed fine. Yes it has. Only by inches, but it has. 40/3
Lasith Malinga403629.00114110
4.4 to MJ Lumb, Lumb finally succeeds at what he seems to have been trying to do: find an outfielder with the pull. Slower ball again, and this time he connects with the pull for a change, only to hole out to deep midwicket. 33/1
17.4 to SPD Smith, slower ball again, and he has found the timber here. Smith feels Malinga might finally bowl the quicker ball and moves across to try to scoop it. Malinga stays slow, and arrives after Smith has scooped. Leg stump gone. They check for the no-ball, but Lasith is fine. 119/7
Thisara Perera302217.3342000
14.6 to SNJ O'Keefe, that;s a bouncer like he meant it. Gets it to rise throat high as opposed to the earlier waist-high effort. O'Keefe throws his bat at it, manages a top edge to fine leg where Munaf makes no mistake. I don't see Munaf making a single mistake. 98/6
Pragyan Ojha402907.2582110
Harbhajan Singh402215.5061000
11.2 to MC Henriques, and Dar has given him. That was an offbreak and could have been turning down leg. Pitched just outside off, turning past the bat even as he is playing forward. On second look, this hasn't turned that much, and Dar has judged the extent of turn to perfection. 77/5

Josh Hazlewood402005.00163020
Mitchell Starc403228.00135100
17.4 to NLTC Perera, short of a length, smashed right down mid-off's throat. Defending champions going out without a win. 101/6
17.6 to AT Rayudu, Rayudu goes too. Tries to slog, mis-hits it over mid-off. Smith runs back, takes it over his shoulder. He never looks like dropping that one. 102/7
Pat Cummins401624.00142000
15.5 to KA Pollard, Pollard is gone. Afraid to say, expectedly so. Nothing pitched up in his half, and sooner than later the edge was going to come. Who would have thought you ever hear that said for a West Indian? Short, well outside off, chest high, he tries to slog it over cow corner, toe-ends it to Haddin. 89/4
18.6 to SL Malinga, what a take from Haddin. That's reminiscent of the man whose keeping stance he copies. Ian Healy won't mind taking such a catch himself. Sharp bouncer, following Malinga all the way, kisses the glove, headed towards fine leg, until Haddin dives full length to catch this behind his body. One handed, and that too with his left. 104/8
Moises Henriques402927.2592110
8.2 to DR Smith, Smith swings hard and hopes for the best again. This time he has connected well, though, and finds long-on to perfection with a flat hit. 52/1
8.5 to SR Tendulkar, Tendulkar is bowled again. Happening too often of late. Short of a length, middle and off, holds its line, beats the open face. Yet another innings at a strike rate of under 100. 53/2
