Pat Brown2063421.705100
21b to WG Jacks, taken at extra cover! Brown strikes first up. It's full and slanted in at the stumps. Looks for the flick and closes the face too early, and the leading edge is taken easily. 23/1
87b to SW Billings, taken at long-off. Full at off stump, makes room to go inside-out and gets it to the fielder's left. He sprints, he stays low, and takes it about a foot from the ground. 140/3
Moeen Ali521102.201100
Benny Howell2042811.402100
48b to JJ Roy, tonks leg stump! The change in pace has worked out for Phoenix. Howell's slowed it down and Roy is through this slog too early. 68/2

Saqib Mahmood2053421.706010
56b to WCF Smeed, meaty full toss and he lucks out with a wicket! It was thigh height on sixth stump, he tries to slap this over mid-off but instead skies this to extra cover on the ring. Narine doesn't mess around with this one after his earlier drop. Simple catch at chest height with palms facing into his body.. 99/3
72b to MM Ali, caught at deep midwicket. Moeen's carnage comes to an end. Length ball on middle, clubs this to the man on the rope, easy catch.. 138/4
Reece Topley1983101.633200
Sunil Narine2054112.053310
16b to FH Allen, oh dear! Allen has stepped onto his stumps going back to flick Narine through midwicket! Hit wicket comes to the Hundred! Just an innocuous ball on fourth stump on a good length, Allen goes too deep in his crease though trying to access the leg side and a massive noise comes through the stump mic followed by roars from the fielders. Replays confirm the zing stumps lighting up with Allen stepping too far back.. 28/1
Tabraiz Shamsi2033611.802200
26b to LS Livingstone, strikes immediately! Half-tracker on the stumps, Livingstone rocks back to slaughter a pull. He gets plenty of mustard behind it but not nearly enough elevation. Picks out the man at cow corner for a chest height catch two yards in from the rope. He didn't have to move.. 45/2
