12b to Q de Kock, banged in and swatted... straight to short fine leg! Quick and straight and it rushes de Kock as he looks to pull this, barely goes anywhere and it's a comfortable catch on the edge of the ring! Milne gets the breakthrough for Phoenix. 15/1
91b to AL Davies, slower ball, dinked straight to short third! Milne strikes with his first ball back, out the back of the hand and Davies was attempting to be cute, dabbed off the back foot but a loopy top edge was snaffled by Tahir - who's happy, as you would expect. 145/5
32b to JM Vince, timbeeeeeeeeeerrrrrrrrrrr! Tahir hits off stump and then off he goes towards deep extra cover...! Flighted legbreak and it scuttles through as Vince attempts to sweep. Too full for the shot, playing against the turn and he pays with his wicket. 35/2
61b to PR Stirling, nicks to the keeper! Put a fork in Stirling, he's done! Dobbly medium pace Knuckle ball delivered on a wide line and the batter throws the hands, gets a thin bottom edge into the gloves, well held by Benjamin... Howell hops in delight, he's produced a crucial breakthrough for Phoenix. 85/3
70b to TH David, fired wide of the stumps, sliced to short third! Livingstone gets his revenge, hung outside the hitting arc and a big top edge is safely pouched by Bedingham running back. 103/4

Fall of wickets: 1-0 (David Bedingham, 2b), 2-14 (Will Smeed, 19b), 3-70 (Liam Livingstone, 45b), 4-83 (Miles Hammond, 54b), 5-97 (Moeen Ali, 66b)
2b to DG Bedingham, Tim David, straight into the tournament with a moment of brilliance at backward point! The latest arrival into the tourney with no name and no number on the back of his jersey, but everyone backing Brave won't forget his name if they come out on top tonight after that catch. It was a low full toss on off stump at shin height, Bedingham slices a drive flat and low toward David on the ring who dives right and plucks it inches from the ground. 10/10 for the Singaporean international on the judge's scorecards from Finland, Argentina, Canada and Qatar.. 0/1
19b to WCF Smeed, fullish length ball on fourth stump, tries to shovel a drive over mid-off but is rushed for pace and instead skews a thick edge that balloons over cover for a simple catch on the ring.. 14/2
54b to MAH Hammond, give an assist to Vince for that wicket. His hustle to save one run on the previous ball put Hammond on strike. Mills digs this one into the pitch to suck Hammond into a pull picking out Garton at deep midwicket, who dives forward and to his left for a spectacular tumbling catch.. 83/4
66b to MM Ali, full on the stumps, Moeen charges and lofts this to long-on, too easy settling under this chance 10 yards inside the rope.. 97/5
