Fall of wickets: 1-24 (Will Smeed, 13b), 2-95 (Finn Allen, 58b), 3-102 (Liam Livingstone, 66b), 4-120 (Chris Benjamin, 79b), 5-160 (Benny Howell, 94b), 6-166 (Chris Cooke, 100b)
79b to CG Benjamin, slower ball lands full on middle at 69 mph, tries to heave this over long-on but instead skies this over square leg in the ring. Keeper shuffles forward and to his left to take a simple catch.. 120/4
94b to BAC Howell, slower ball on the stumps at 67 mph, Howell's timing is thrown off and skies a heave to cow corner. Simple catch three yards inside the rope for Short. He barely had to move.. 160/5
66b to LS Livingstone, Harlem Globetrotters stuff from Mullaney at long-off! Livingstone charges a full ball on fifth stump and slams a drive flat down the ground. Mullaney runs 10 yards to his right and does a bunny hop to take a catch at neck height, then casually flicks the ball over his head, almost behind the back style, before hopping over the rope and hopping back into play to take his self relay. Mullaney does it in stylish fashion to make Meadowlark Lemon proud.. 102/3
13b to WCF Smeed, tries to back away from leg but Carter follows him short on the hips, it climbs on him trying to flick flat through midwicket but he can't keep the ball down and Mullaney takes a sharp catch diving to his right in the ring.. 24/1
58b to FH Allen, yorker on middle stump at 91 mph, major heat knocking back the stumps as he misses a heave and leg stump is rattled.. 95/2

TOTAL100 balls (RPB: 1.50)150/9
Fall of wickets: 1-20 (Alex Hales, 11b), 2-20 (Dawid Malan, 14b), 3-28 (D'Arcy Short, 23b), 4-57 (Samit Patel, 36b), 5-99 (Lewis Gregory, 64b), 6-124 (Tom Moores, 81b), 7-128 (Rashid Khan, 86b), 8-129 (Steven Mullaney, 88b), 9-149 (Matthew Carter, 99b)
11b to AD Hales, bowled him, top of off! First wicket in the Hundred and it's a big one for Pennington... Length ball, pace on and Hales is cleaned up as he backs away and tries to baseball bat it back down the ground. 20/1
14b to DJ Malan, tickles an edge through to Cooke! Pennington gets two in four balls, Malan just looking to run it down off the face and gets a audible feather through. Big breakthrough, it's Dill-on Penningt-on for Phoenix!. 20/2
99b to M Carter, yorks him! Full, fast and rearranging the timbers as Carter winds up for a big one. 149/9
23b to DJM Short, scooped straight to deep backward square leg! Not entirely sure how Short got that there, the ball was full, pace on but maybe gripped a little, he was flicking across it and seemed to get a massive leading edge that ended up dollying to the only man out there. 28/3
86b to Rashid Khan, Rashid spoons a massive wipe to deep point! Pace off wide of the stumps from Brown, went for the Budgie the helicopter wallop over the off side but wasn't in control and could barely have picked out the man better. 128/7
88b to SJ Mullaney, chipped leg side... but Helm does the balancing act business on the rope! Walked across and flicked this towards the shorter boundary at deep backward square, almost gets enough on it. But Helm leans back and swallows it, checks his feet and lobs it up before stepping outside the rope and back in to complete the dismissal. 129/8
36b to SR Patel, googly woogly woogly! Patel's cleaned up! Tossed up and sneaking between bat and pad to hit the timbers... Tahir is off and running! Samit Patel is off and wondering, should I just whacked it rather than looking for one. Lively cameo but Rockets need something substantial. 57/4
64b to L Gregory, tossed up wide, invites the big shot... top-edged to short third! Another key strike from Tahir, throws this out wide and Gregory tries to fetch it to leg. Loops over the head of the keeper but Pennington runs around to his left for a straightforward take. 99/5
81b to TJ Moores, Moores plinks a seven iron to long-off! Huge wind up and swing but no pace on the ball for him to work with and it goes very high, but not very far... well taken by Hammond, steadying himself a few yards in from the rope. 124/6
