3.3 to AD Hales, Cleans him up! The pressure was building on the Vipers and Hales looked to go big over the leg side. But that was a cross-seamer on leg that skids through and hits top of off! Big breakthrough for the Warriors. 16/1
17.6 to SW Billings, pings leg stump! Jawadullah bowled a cutter, which was dipping towards potentially becoming a low full toss on leg. Billings was across off early to try and swing at that, but missed. That should have been ideally sent away to the rope, but alas. 132/6
Mohammad Nabi201919.5052100
6.5 to C Munro, Rapped on the pad and they go up in appeal. Up goes the finger! Vipers review, but that looks quite plumb. That was on a length around off, he missed as he looked to whip it away and was struck on the back pad. That was staying low, so height should not be an issue. No bat, UltraEdge confirms. And that's three reds and Munro has to go!. 47/2
Noor Ahmad402726.75112100
8.4 to Rohan Mustafa, Wrong 'un does him in! That was tossed up on a length outside off, Mustafa came down the track but is nowhere near the pitch of the ball and it spins in sharply to go under his bat and clatter the stumps as the batter looked to hoick it away. 57/3
10.6 to PWH de Silva, finds deep midwicket! A very good, low catch by Walter. He had to go low, and a bit across to his right before gobbling the ball just above the ground. Hasaranga was deep in the crease before swishing this length ball around leg, as he made room and swung. 63/4

Sheldon Cottrell403408.50104110
Gus Atkinson402416.00144000
1.3 to Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Atkinson strikes! Keeps banging it in on a length, this time Gurbaz looks to play a pickup shot and it goes to Rohan Mustafa at deep square leg and he takes a good catch moving forward. 16/1
Luke Wood402035.00112010
2.1 to T Kohler-Cadmore, And he strikes immediately! Banged in short on leg, Kohler-Cadmore looks to pull but top edges it and Hales takes a good catch at mid-off moving back!. 18/2
15.6 to PI Walter, chipped to mid-off! Warriors' last possible hope is gone. On the shorter side of a length just outside off, and with a scrambled seam. The length was not full enough to loft down the ground, and the ball went off the higher side of the bat to mid-off, who took a few steps back to nab the ball. 101/7
17.4 to Noor Ahmad, gone, the leg stump is hit at 140kph! Noor cleared his front leg at this shortish ball, which was moving into leg. The ball didn't bounce all that well though, as he got a bottom edge on to the stumps. Warriors wrapping up quickly now. 112/8
Wanindu Hasaranga de Silva401333.25140000
8.1 to MP Stoinis, And he strikes! Legbreak on a length on middle and off, Stoinis gets down to sweep and misses and the finger goes up immediately! He doesn't even review it, as he knew he was a goner. 50/3
10.5 to AJ Hose, bowled him! This hits the off stump. He gave the ball some air, as it dipped while being angled into the batter. It pitched on a fullish length on off, and almost went on straight after pitching, with Hose driving from middle stump, perhaps expecting it to turn in. 57/5
12.1 to Mohammad Nabi, wow, another good ball fetches a wicket! He slowed it down, and Nabi had no idea of that. Turns back in sharply, and does that pretty late, by which time Nabi has already pushed at the ball. Hasaranga gave the ball some air - and also slowed it down - to go on a fullish length outside off, with the ball again dipping. Nabi missed, and the ball went on to hit middle stump. 65/6
