Fall of wickets: 1-21 (D'Arcy Short, 11b), 2-59 (Alex Hales, 44b), 3-106 (Samit Patel, 76b), 4-119 (Lewis Gregory, 86b), 5-127 (Dawid Malan, 91b), 6-128 (Rashid Khan, 95b)
11b to DJM Short, short ball on the hip, flipped straight to short fine leg! Done a little bit for pace as Milne skidded the ball into him, think it perhaps clipped bat and then thigh pad, the way it spooned up - and Imran Tahir was alert to take the catch diving forward just inside the circle. 21/1
95b to Rashid Khan, slogged high into the sky... picks out deep backward point! Helicopter wrists from Rashid but he didn't quite get enough of it, Livingstone jogging around the rope to take the catch safely. 128/6
86b to L Gregory, starts with a slower ball and Gregory top-edges it to the keeper! Back of the hand, completely duped and the ball sails almost straight up for Benjamin to take going across to his left. Helm gives a mischievous smile, he's a bit happier now. 119/4
44b to AD Hales, sky rocket from Hales, and it's safely taken at mid-off! Again he was leaning back and swinging for the hills, but this didn't go very far at all, Smeed watching it into the hands as he backpedaled on the edge of the ring. Big breakthrough from Moeen. 59/2
76b to SR Patel, clubbed hard and high... straight to deep backward square leg! Patel falls for a sparky 31 off 19, trying to slog-sweep Howell's allsorts but couldn't get enough power on the shot to clear the man in the deep. Phoenix needed that. 106/3

TOTAL74 balls (RPB: 1.95)145/4
Fall of wickets: 1-60 (Will Smeed, 22b), 2-104 (Moeen Ali, 50b), 3-111 (Finn Allen, 55b), 4-134 (Miles Hammond, 67b)
50b to MM Ali, relief for Samit Patel. Moeen absolutely nails another slog-sweep, hits it very sweetly indeed, but straight to wide long-on.. 104/2
22b to WCF Smeed, he's picked out deep midwicket. This was bowled short, and Smeed latches on to it, but maybe he was too eager to hit it, and he hasn't middled it like his earlier shots. Straight down the fielder's throat at the boundary. The ball was there to be hit, and Smeed was in prime hitting form. But he'll have to go now. Rashid does it again. 60/1
55b to FH Allen, googly castles him. He went down to reverse sweep, but this was again bowled quicker and it zipped through to shatter stumps. 111/3
67b to MAH Hammond, castles him. Rashid showing how effective he can be, no matter the match situation. This was bowled quick, and it skids off from a length on off to go through the gate and light up the stumps.. 134/4
