TOTAL20 Ov (RR: 7.20)144/6
Fall of wickets: 1-33 (Aaron Finch, 4.1 ov), 2-42 (Cameron White, 5.5 ov), 3-48 (Ben Dunk, 7.3 ov), 4-67 (Nathan Reardon, 10.2 ov), 5-124 (Shane Watson, 17.2 ov), 6-142 (Ben Cutting, 19.5 ov)
10.2 to NJ Reardon, whatacatch! That was short and rising outside off and he crouched to play the ramp shot. Got a fairly big chunk of bat on it and it went at high pace over de Kock. He leaped high in the air, at full stretch, and came away with the ball stuck in his right glove. 67/4
17.2 to SR Watson, gone! Yet another batsman hits it in the air at catching height, straight to a fielder. It was full outside off and Watson hit that cleanly but picked out the man at cover, right on the edge of the circle. 124/5
19.5 to BCJ Cutting, gone. Cutting goes deep in his crease and gets under this blockhole delivery, strikes it cleanly, but the straight boundaries here are long and he holes out to Miller at long-on. It's an easy catch but he makes sure there are no stuff-ups, tossing the ball in the air, stepping out of the boundary and back in to re-take the catch. 142/6
5.5 to CL White, taken! It was short, wide, and it deserved to be smashed, and White duly smashed it, but Behardien at cover point leaped in the air, arms at full stretch, and plucked it out of the air. 42/2
4.1 to AJ Finch, and he strikes first ball. It's a slower ball outside off, and Finch goes hard at it, looking to drive on the up, and pops a simple catch to short cover. 33/1
7.3 to BR Dunk, tossed up wide outside off. Dunk goes hard at the drive and hits it in the air, and Duminy takes it well at short cover, going down on one knee and taking it above his right shoulder. 48/3

TOTAL19 Ov (RR: 7.63)145/3
Fall of wickets: 1-0 (Reeza Hendricks, 0.3 ov), 2-129 (Rilee Rossouw, 14.6 ov), 3-129 (Quinton de Kock, 15.2 ov)
0.3 to RR Hendricks, beauty, and it's a duck on debut for Reeza. His feet are stuck in cement as he pokes at this length ball, which leaves him slightly to accentuate the angle. Dunk dives low to his right to catch that outside edge. 0/1
14.6 to RR Rossouw, Cummins ends a lovely debut innings. It's short, angled across, he has to fetch the pull from really wide and ends up hitting it up in the air, simple catch to mid-on. 129/2
15.2 to Q de Kock, got him. He came down the track, making room to hit through the off side, and ended up driving straight into the hands of short cover. 129/3
