Fall of wickets: 1-2 (Alex Hales, 3b), 2-11 (Dawid Malan, 8b), 3-27 (Colin Munro, 23b), 4-37 (Tom Kohler-Cadmore, 37b), 5-52 (Ian Cockbain, 51b), 6-53 (Samit Patel, 54b)
3b to AD Hales, hooned leg side, straight to deep midwicket! Hales tries to fetch a slog-sweep towards the short boundary, but doesn't middle it at all. "Catch it!" is the cry from Birmingham Phoenix's captain, and that's just what Benny Howell does. 2/1
8b to DJ Malan, Malan goes early, miscued to mid-off! And Immy is off and running in celebration... Flighted legbreak and Malan looks to hit down the ground, but ends up slicing across the ball. Taken by Brookes as he tumbles back. 11/2
23b to C Munro, blapped back at the bowler, who holds on! Snapped up at shin height in his follow through - that's a fantastic effort from Helm! Length ball, pace off and Munro struck it well. But it flew straight back at the stooping Helm, and he got both hands to it. 27/3
37b to T Kohler-Cadmore, bowled him neck and crop! Think it was the knuckle ball from Howell, and it skids through a crooked shot from TKC. Trying to work to leg but played all around it. You miss, Benny hits, and Rockets lose their fourth. 37/4
51b to IA Cockbain, full, floaty, pinned in front of middle and leg! Up goes Tom Lungley's finger, but Cockbain reviews. Quite tight on the angle, I think, but only needs to be clipping. No bat involved, and it is just grazing leg stump! So Howell gets another. 52/5
54b to SR Patel, goes hard, picks out cover! Howell snares his third wicket inside nine deliveries! Full outside off, invites the drive but timing is another thing altogether. Snaffled above his head by Moeen. 53/6

Fall of wickets: 1-2 (Will Smeed, 3b), 2-25 (Miles Hammond, 21b), 3-110 (Moeen Ali, 66b)
3b to WCF Smeed, bowled him! Smeed falls second-ball, and Rockets are up and running! Tight line, maybe some extra bounce as Smeed is cramped on the pull and under-edges onto his own bails. He's gone for 1 (2) after three, just like Alex Hales in Rockets' innings. 2/1
21b to MAH Hammond, full, straight, inswinging, out! That is utterly plumb, thumped on the toe as the ball dips on the yorker length. Hammond's sparky innings is done. 25/2
66b to MM Ali, he has been magnificent! More pace on the ball, tight and full, clean through Moeen's heave to leg, pegging back the top of middle stump, and a mighty bit of tonking is brought to an end. 110/3
