17.5 to D Wiese, taken at deep midwicket. Length ball clobbered to deep midwicket, and the fielder runs in to take a sliding catch at knee height. 158/5
8.5 to JM Vince, it was Pathirana to Howell last time around. This time it is vice versa. Full outside off, and Vince tries to heave it over the leg side but it takes an outside edge. Lobbed catch for the Sri Lankan at short third. Danger man gone. 81/3
6.4 to CA Lynn, full ball, bit wider outside off. Slapped, but straight to Howell at point! Flew off the bat, and Howell collected it beautifully. 145kph delivery and rapid off the blade too. 61/2
19.5 to SO Hetmyer, waist high full toss? Maybe just legal. Full toss to Hetmyer and he pulls in front of square. But Hetmyer couldn't get hold of it, and Cottrell again with some action in the deep. Solid knock for 58. 178/6
14.2 to MG Erasmus, high up but Curran runs in from long on to take this at midwicket. Full on off and Erasmus tried to find that elusive big shot. Went deep in his crease, didn't have amazing timing, toe end of the bat.. 129/4

Fall of wickets: 1-57 (Rohan Mustafa, 5.3 ov), 2-57 (Alex Hales, 6.2 ov), 3-65 (Colin Munro, 7.6 ov), 4-71 (Sherfane Rutherford, 9.5 ov), 5-88 (Sam Billings, 11.5 ov), 6-122 (Benny Howell, 15.1 ov) • DRS
15.1 to BAC Howell, Top edge off the pull goes towards short mid-on. Bowler runs across and takes it. Back of length outside off, Howell tried to go square but the bat swing went like that of a boxer's upper cut where only part of the knuckles connected. Comfy catch. As Niall O'Brien says on air, weird dismissal.. 122/6
7.6 to C Munro, Pitched up, launched high. But it's not far, long-on settles and Wiese there takes it easily. Munro tried a step hit to the full ball on fourth, ended up skying it high. Wiese stood calmly and continued Giants' stride forward.. 65/3
5.3 to Rohan Mustafa, The slash finally takes the edge, easy catch for the keeper. Subdued celebrations. The theme in Mustafa's last five balls: charging forward and trying to over cover cost him this time. Ends up taking a thin edge after beating the bat. But he's given Vipers a great platform in the chase. 57/1
11.5 to SW Billings, Given caught behind, Billings reviews. There was a sound. Billings made room, was charging and tried to power an on drive. Was around a length, came in and looked close to the inside edge. The seam of the ball looks to be brushing the bat and there is a light murmur detected. Third umpire upholds the decision. All going south for Vipers.. 88/5
6.2 to AD Hales, Slog swept in the air, finds deep midwicket! Length around sixth, Hales tries dragging it across but toes it. Comfy catch for Drakes. The 17-year-old has his first.. 57/2
9.5 to SE Rutherford, Rutherford turns into an s as he winds up for the cover drive, goes right up off the bottom of the bat for an easy catch for Wiese at long-off. Slowed it down after darting a few, works the trick.. 71/4
