David Payne2083201.605020
Jake Ball2072941.450300
43b to WL Madsen, width on the full length, and chopped straight to gully! Opens the face, dabbed as if giving catching practice, to end a sparky cameo. 81/2
81b to PI Walter, big wind-up and snicked to the diving Clarke! A fine slower ball, and the ball looped off a thick outside edge, almost reaching the keeper with backspin. After a tough night, he does well to cling onto that. 130/6
96b to SA Abbott, targetting the top of off stump! Cunning from Ball, a 70mph offcutter, through a loose swipe. 147/8
100b to MW Parkinson, slower ball, slogged high to deep midwicket, and Duckett steadies himself on the rope to swallow the chance!. 149/9
Adam Zampa2081720.851000
35b to PD Salt, skids the flatter, quicker one through, and Salt loses his bails! He rocked back, anticipating a cuttable legbreak, but it just kept barrelling on to end a fine knock. 66/1
50b to JC Buttler, outstanding bowling! Full, straight, a late dipping yorker, clean through Buttler's loose swish, and that's a huge breakthrough to go into the halfway-mark. 86/3
Dwaine Pretorius2063021.503100
66b to AD Russell, back of a length, and slapped to deep cover! Russell's muscles can't clear the longest boundary of the night, Sam Hain sets himself to swallow the chance five metres in from the rope. Big breakthrough. 108/5
87b to T Stubbs, hits the pitch hard, a bluff after setting a field for the full, wide ball. Instead, Stubbs swings across the line for a steepling top-edge, and a good catch almost at his original point of delivery from Pretorius. 135/7
Matt Critchley2063111.553100
52b to LJ Evans, superb googly! Full length is the key once more, as Evans drives loosely, and loses his off stump through the gate! A first-baller, and now we have a contest.... 87/4

Mitchell Stanley1582311.533100
13b to JM Clarke, half-volley, sliding into the pads. Swung high into the leg side.... Abbott settles underneath it at deep midwicket! Just flicked, and mistimed into the deep. It swirled around in the breeze, but Abbott took a safe catch to give Stanley a wicket on debut. 13/1
Tom Hartley1541611.061010
39b to SR Hain, gives himself room, lofts into-out over extra cover but Russell is running around to his left... and takes this one at wide long-off! No real celebration as he is still frustrated at dropping the last chance. 43/3
Sean Abbott1513840.530100
19b to T Banton, on a length, leading edge back to the bowler! Pressure bursts pipe, Fire lose their second. Looking to go over mid-on but there wasn't room to play the shot, and he pops it back to Abbott for a simple c&b. 14/2
71b to MJJ Critchley, drags on! Abbott looks for the yorker but it's a low full toss outside off. Critchley shapes to flash through the off side, and inside edges onto the base of his stumps. 80/7
73b to A Zampa, slower ball, back of a length. Skied up towards short third... Walter takes a blinder over his shoulder running back! Top-edge, looking to slash over the off side, and Tall Paul does very well. 82/8
81b to DA Payne, slower ball, jammed in short. Payne shuffles across to scoop but can't get bat on it. Oh my goodness, has he BBQed himself here? He has!! A lazy wander out of his crease, Salt threw at the stumps underarm, and Payne was caught just short! Sums up Fire's night - and their season. 97/9
Paul Walter1031201.200100
Matt Parkinson1432111.503000
89b to D Pretorius, swung out to deep midwicket, Stubbs takes an excellent catch! He had to keep swinging, and looked for the gap between midwicket and long-on, but Stubbs ran round to his left and sealed the deal with a good, diving effort. 102/10
Tristan Stubbs105620.600010
45b to BM Duckett, on a length, swung out into the deep... straight to Abbott at midwicket! Extra bounce for Stubbs, and Duckett mistimes his pull. Fire are having another shocker with the bat. 47/4
46b to JJ Cobb, pulled straight to short midwicket! Width outside off stump, Cobb's eyes light up. He looks to swing over the leg side, but it's straight at Buttler who takes a sharp catch just above his head. 48/5
Andre Russell1031311.300100
54b to DA Miller, picks out extra cover! Every attacking shot Fire have played seems to have gone to hand. Gives himself a little room outside leg stump, Russell hits a length, and Miller slaps straight to Madsen. 54/6
