Luke Wood1571911.261101
19b to IA Cockbain, 88 mph rocket into the off stump! Good length ball, Cockbain too overeager trying to whack this down the ground clearing the front leg for a big heave and is beaten for pace. Off stump is destroyed, check it for some burn marks!. 28/2
Matthew Carter2052311.152000
87b to GD Phillips, short on the stumps, pulls this high off more of a top-edge to deep backward square. Phillips was late getting onto the back foot and pays for it as Mullaney charges in 20 yards from the rope and takes a sharp catch sliding on his knees to cushion the ball on the landing into his lap.. 125/4
Wahab Riaz2073041.503100
13b to T Banton, length ball, Banton gets too greedy trying to swat this over midwicket and instead skies this top-edge over cover. Rashid Khan with a basic catch on the ring.. 13/1
92b to JDS Neesham, heat-seeking yorker on leg stump! Spears this in full and Neesham tries to play a booming drive but scuffs over the top of it and the zing bails go flying.. 130/5
97b to Qais Ahmad, tries to scoop a full ball over fine leg by Qais gets under it too much and skies this over fine leg. Easy catch for Malan just outside the ring sliding on his knees.. 134/7
99b to LJ Fletcher, no good fortune for Fletcher this time! Wahab with another laser-guided missile into the base of middle stump, Fletcher misses a heave and middle stump is knocked out of the ground.. 138/8
Steven Mullaney1542211.461100
41b to BM Duckett, tries to light up this 62 mph full delivery from Mullaney but the lack of pace does Duckett in. Skies this drive high over mid-off. Wahab backpedals from the ring to take a simple catch with his palms facing into the torso.. 53/3

Luke Fletcher1031401.402000
David Payne1562511.662101
49b to SJ Mullaney, holes out to deep point! Slashing at one angled across him, forced to hit to the longer part of the ground, and it's well taken by Phillips dashing in from the rope. 63/3
Matt Milnes2073111.551220
15b to DJM Short, Short goes aerial... but plinks it into the covers! Bit of width, inviting him to free the arms, 82mph and it zipped on to hit high up the bat. Straightforward catch to the edge of the 30-yard circle, and Fire have their breakthrough. 17/1
Qais Ahmad2082321.153010
38b to DJ Malan, chipped down the ground, superbly taken running in! Qais strikes, and Rockets might just be rocking. Malan was looking to go in to out, hitting over the infield, but ended up dragging it straighter. Still needed some work doing, but Jimmy Neesham raced in off the rope at long-off and took it brilliantly just above the turf. 50/2
58b to AD Hales, top-edged and safely taken by Banton! Hales just couldn't find his mojo, went for the big slog-sweep but Qais found enough bounce and turn to ensure that the ball went almost straight up - straightforward bit of glovework this time, tracking back and across and few steps to his left. 71/4
