4.2 to TH Tector, the Lightning lose another quickly! Adair gets the outside edge of the bat and the ball flies to the right of second slip. Pretorius dives down low to his right and takes an excellent catch low down.. 35/2
48.5 to F Hand, Slower ball Yorker cleans Hand up as he is through the shot too quickly and the ball hits the stumps. A quick fire 18 from the batter off only 11 balls. 344/8
3.5 to A Balbirnie, Balbirnie walks across the stumps and looks to clip the ball into the legside, misses and is clipped on the front pad. The appeal goes up and so does the Umpire's finger. After a bright start, Balbirnie has to go. 31/1
45.3 to DC Delany, Delany goes for the scoop shot and is caught at short third! Just didn't hit the ball cleanly enough and the fielder has a lot of time to settle under the ball and take the catch.. 304/7
49.5 to S Lynch, Lynch edges behind and Rock takes the catch. Lynch walks slowly away from the middle after his excellent Innings.. 352/9
7.1 to Simi Singh, Simi doesn't move his feet and has a big swing at the ball, gets the smallest of edges through to the keeper and the Knights all go up in celebration. Simi doesn't think that he hit the ball and waits around for a moment or two before walking. 47/3
7.6 to SJ Harbinson, Harbinson charges out of the crease to meet the ball early. The ball kisses the outside edge and goes through to the keeper. Rock dives forward to take the catch and the Lightning are in a lot of trouble here. 47/4
19.5 to GH Dockrell, Dockrell chips the ball towards extra cover. Adair takes two attempts to take the catch but the Lightning Captain has to go. Tame end to be honest.. 110/5
27.6 to C De Freitas, De Freitas goes back in the crease and looks to cut the ball. Get's a little underedge that crashes back into the stumps. The batter looks down at the ground before turning and walking off.. 154/6

TOTAL30.2 Ov (RR: 6.03, 135 Mins)183
Fall of wickets: 1-9 (Ross Adair, 1.4 ov), 2-44 (James McCollum, 6.3 ov), 3-134 (Morgan Topping, 18.6 ov), 4-140 (Neil Rock, 20.2 ov), 5-142 (Paul Stirling, 21.5 ov), 6-144 (Ruhan Pretorius, 22.3 ov), 7-147 (Theo van Woerkom, 24.2 ov), 8-167 (Mark Adair, 27.3 ov), 9-172 (Matthew Humphreys, 28.6 ov), 10-183 (Thomas Mayes, 30.2 ov)
6.3 to JA McCollum, McCollum is strangled down the legside. He flicked the bat at the ball as it went down the legside, a huge appeal went up from the Lightning players and after a long time the Umpire's finger goes up.. 44/2
1.4 to GR Adair, Adair looks to pull the ball into the legside, is beaten for pace and the stumps go flying. Great early start for the Lightning. 9/1
27.3 to MR Adair, Adair backs deep into the crease and looks to defend the ball, is beaten for pace again and Delany knocks the bails off. Knights eight down now. 167/8
21.5 to PR Stirling, Massive wicket for the Lightning! Stirling slog sweeps the ball towards cow corner. Harbison has time to settle under the ball and takes the catch before looking down to make sure that he didn't touch the boundary.. 142/5
18.6 to M Topping, Hoey breaks the partnership! Topping reached forward to defend the ball, the ball spins past the bat and clips the top of the bails. Topping looks back in disbelief and has to walk off. 134/3
20.2 to NA Rock, Rock looks to sweep the ball into the legside. Doesn't get any bat on the ball and is hit on the front pad. It's plumb in front of middle stump and the Knights in-form batter has to go. 140/4
22.3 to R Pretorius, This time the Lightning do get a wicket. Pretorius went forward to defend the ball, the ball kisses the outside edge and goes straight to Balbirnie at first slip. He throws the ball up in the air to celebrate the catch. 144/6
24.2 to TF van Woerkom, Hoey gets another! Theo pushes the bat at the ball as he looks to defend the ball, gets a feather through to the keeper and the Knights lose their seveth wicket. 147/7
28.6 to MJ Humphreys, Hoey gets his five for! Humphreys can only edge the ball into Balbirnie's safe hands at slip and the Knights lose another. 172/9
30.2 to T Mayes, It's that Hoey/Balbirnie partnership again, as the bowler gets the outside edge and Balbirnie takes the catch. Mayes can barely believe it as the Umpires finger goes up and the Knights are all out.. 183/10
