George Garton20101830.902010
11b to DJ Malan, back of a length, finds the edge! Garton creates an opening, leaps in celebration! Good line outside off and he finds some extra bounce with Malan looking to open the face on a dab. 15/1
15b to AD Hales, pace off, Hales swings hard and feathers an edge! Two in the set for Garton, and it's the change-up this time! Spins up off the deck and Hales is suckered into a swipe that loops through to de Kock. 18/2
25b to DJM Short, spooned straight to midwicket! Third wicket for Garton, it's all going green at The Oval! Short of a length, seemed to stick in the pitch as Short looked to turn it to leg, the ball popped up off the splice to give Mills a simple catch. Rockets floundering at the end of the Powerplay. 31/4
Craig Overton20102521.253100
20b to SJ Mullaney, bowled 'im, Rockets are sputtering! Filthy mow from Mullaney and there's just a fraction of seam movement back in, clips the off peg and the zing bails light up! Overton is off and running with his arm in the air, Brave bossing the opening exchanges. 24/3
70b to SR Patel, Gottim! Lintott swoops on a Superman catch! Full and belted by Samit, but Lintott takes a couple of steps to his left at mid-off before launching himself for the ball... Not the most elegant diving catch you've ever seen, but he stands up and casually tosses the ball over his shoulder to bring the crowd to their feet. 82/6
Tymal Mills1610830.500010
57b to L Gregory, full toss, smeared to extra cover! Flung out wide, 87mph and Gregory throws the hands to connect... only for Stirling to stoop for a low catch! Brilliantly taken, diving forwards. Mills breaks the recovery stand. 62/5
84b to Rashid Khan, slower ball, top-edged to backward point! Hung it out wide as Rashid tried to come down and he sends a flaccid swipe to the edge of the ring, David backpedalling to take a good catch above his head. 88/8
91b to M de Lange, pitched up and feathered through! Mills does the job first ball, and Rockets have been dismissed with nine balls unbowled! This has been a demolition job by Brave, though they've still got to finish it off with the bat. 96/10
Chris Jordan1571521.000120
79b to TJ Moores, launched towards long-on... but there's a man there! Overton takes it on the rope, steadies himself and then does the toss-up-hokey-cokey - his back heel was very close to the boundary marker, and he then trod on it after releasing. But he completes the catch back inside the rope and Moores has to go, done by the lack of pace on another Jordan slower ball. 87/7
90b to M Carter, nicked to the keeper! Pace on from Jordan and it finds the outside edge as Carter throws the hands. A leaden-footed swipe and Rockets lose their ninth. 96/9

Matthew Carter1041711.702100
40b to PR Stirling, Stirling's merry marauding is done. Tries to swat a full ball on fifth stump over de Lange up in the ring at mid-off. The big unit backpedals into position 10 yards inside the rope and sticks his hands up to palm this initially before spinning around and stabbing his right hand out to take it on the rebound and give Rockets the tiniest of silver linings in the field.. 69/2
Sam Cook1862601.443100
Marchant de Lange20121620.802000
12b to Q de Kock, bounced out! Goes short on the stumps, de Kock goes to heave this over midwicket but is hustled and a top edge goes to deep fine leg. Cook gets into position 10 yards inside the rope and waist forever for it to come back to earth before taking it in front of his face with palms facing out.. 22/1
52b to AL Davies, the drop only costs two runs. Length ball that Davies pushes hard at but is beaten on the inside edge by seam movement that flicks the bat. Big appeal denied initially but the bat was far away from the pads. Could only have been one thing producing the noise. They go for the review and sure enough a spike appears as it passes the bat. Decision overturned. . 83/3
