Dominic Drakes402125.25152030
0.2 to ADS Fletcher, LBW appeal is turned down, Giants discuss and take a review. Was there an inside edge? The length ball looked to have come back in and beat the full-faced defence. No contact with the bat. Deflected to short third and they took a run. Technical glitch with Hawk-Eye leads to more replays. The ball hit the back pad, went parallel to the knee roll and rose just a bit. Ball-tracking finally loads up and shows three reds. Landed in line with leg stump, impact and projection were on middle and leg. No big score for the Spiceman this time.. 4/1
16.4 to JA Thompson, Leading edge, taken at point. Done by pace and bounce. Was a shortish ball that was coming towards the body, Thompson was hopping, tried to awkwardly turn it to the leg side. Partly in self-defence. Ball ballooned off the sticker, replays show, for an easy catch. 126/7
Sanchit Sharma403809.50104020
David Wiese401423.50181100
3.4 to Basil Hameed, Bouncer rises, Hameed balloons a pull to short fine. Was around chest-height, the batter wanted to go square but was late on it. The pace did him and Wiese has his first. Hameed's tough stay at the crease ends. Wasn't a pacy ball but Hameed was slow on the shot.. 27/2
17.4 to TA Boult, Slashes, top edge, taken at mid-off. Short ball just outside off, Boult tried to stay leg side and slap it over the in-field on the off side. But it got very little timing. Easy catch. 128/8
Chris Jordan3.511233.13172000
11.2 to Muhammad Waseem, Waseem makes room but to get caught in two minds. Indecision leads to the ball hitting top of middle. He was expecting the shorter ball, Jordan went length and hit the wicket. Looked like a skiddy ball, Waseem then tried to adjust late and block it on the move. Missed, to Jordan's delight.. 88/3
15.4 to Najibullah Zadran, Top edge off the pull, taken brilliantly by Banton. The keeper ran back, adjusted for the swirl of the ball, took it and slid on through the grass for a safe landing. Jordan was all over Najib this over. His pace was too high to handle. This time, the batter went back into his crease and tried to pull it fine. Went off the top edge. 122/6
19.1 to DJ Bravo, Get Bravo is what Jordan can do, holed out to deep cover. Bravo made ample room, Jordan followed him with a shortish ball. Tried to open up the off side with a carve off the back foot, aimed over cover. Got it off the top edge. Easy catch. 139/9
Rehan Ahmed4047211.75111600
12.3 to N Pooran, Pulled in the air, holed out to deep midwicket. Big boundary does the trick. Was slow at 84 kph and short, Pooran rocked back and tried muscling it, got only as far as Hetmyer. Key blow. 98/4
14.3 to KA Pollard, 'Oh no', says Pollard after pulling the short ball. Finds deep midwicket! Pollard went back to the ball after seeing it land, lost balance but managed to not trudge onto the stumps. Goes flat towards Drakes, who doesn't spot it at first but manages to cling on.. 120/5

Fazalhaq Farooqi403117.7595000
17.1 to MG Erasmus, Banged in short and Erasmus skies it as he looks to pull. Bravo takes an easy catch at point and MI Emirates have a glimmer of hope. 118/3
Dwayne Bravo403228.0094020
12.1 to T Banton, High in the air and taken! That was full on leg, pace off, Banton looks to flick off his pads but doesn't time it and it balloons up and is a simple catch for Waseem at deep midwicket. That's both openers gone now. 76/2
18.1 to CA Lynn, Full and wide, Lynn goes inside out and that's gone straight to deep extra cover! Lynn sliced it as he reached out for the wide delivery and Waseem does well to take the catch under pressure. 123/4
Imran Tahir402807.0081100
Jordan Thompson403719.2584120
8.6 to JM Vince, Holes out to long-off! That was full on middle and leg, Vince backed away and looked to drive it inside out. Doesn't time it and it's straight to DJ Bravo, who takes one of the easier catches of his career. Jordan Thompson has given MI Emirates the first breakthrough. 61/1
