Did not bat:
Fall of wickets: 1-40 (Will Smeed, 23b), 2-48 (Jamie Smith, 32b), 3-55 (Ben Duckett, 39b), 4-56 (Moeen Ali, 42b), 5-73 (Dan Mousley, 67b), 6-108 (Liam Livingstone, 90b), 7-108 (Benny Howell, 91b), 8-117 (Chris Woakes, 98b) • DRS
23b to WCF Smeed, pulled in the air, this time no mistake in the deep! Smeed was beaten by extra pace on the short ball, cramped on the body, a top-edge as he climbed across the line. A key breakthrough after a torrid start. DU Plooy had to make good ground but did so without fuss. 40/1
90b to LS Livingstone, huge wicket! That could be the difference between a defendable total and a meltdown for Phoenix. A feathered edge off another hard-handed swipe, making room to leg with a big wind-up, and a good take from Conway. This innings is not looking rosy now. 108/6
98b to CR Woakes, Mills has his third this time! Makes room to leg, has a wipe through the off side, but that carries all the way to wide long-off. 117/8
42b to MM Ali, Oh Mo! Plays down the wrong line, and Phoenix are getting scorched by spin! Round the wicket, turned a touch on a good length, but beaten around the outside edge to extract the skipper!. 56/4
32b to JL Smith, huge appeal for lbw, and Rehan strikes second-ball! Quicker, fuller, pinned on the knee, back leg, as Smith swings across the line. Big wicket! Thoughts of a review but that was too full to be missing much. 48/2
39b to BM Duckett, Rehan's got his second! Bowled around the legs, didn't pick the googly, and back goes the middle stump! Duckett lined up his favoured sweep but it lets him down for once. What a start this is for the leggie!. 55/3
67b to DR Mousley, Looks like Mousley's been done down the leg-side! Fired fast and flat past the advancing batter, a very good take from the keeper, and he's well short!. 73/5
91b to BAC Howell, an outside edge, and both set batters are gone! Massive wind-up from Howell, but there was more bat-speed than timing on that one. A slo-mo edge loops low to a wide gully, who tumbles well to gather. Big trouble now. 108/7

TOTAL94 balls (RPB: 1.27)120/6
Fall of wickets: 1-24 (Finn Allen, 18b), 2-60 (James Vince, 48b), 3-77 (Devon Conway, 60b), 4-111 (George Garton, 83b), 5-119 (Tim David, 90b), 6-119 (Leus du Plooy, 94b) • DRS
18b to FH Allen, attempted scoop, tumbling to the off-side, and straight into the keeper's gloves! Allen was lumping it gloriously down the ground, but chooses to get himself in a tangle and give Jamie Smith a gift. Odd choices.... 24/1
83b to GHS Garton, takes the leading edge, another thrash across the line, and Garton is gone... is it too little too late? Almost certainly, but that helps. A looping catch to point. 111/4
90b to TH David, huge hack, and David holes out! Smeed at wide long-on steadies himself well in the deep and pockets the chance! Ten more dots needed!. 119/5
48b to JM Vince, bowled him! Vince gives Moeen the charge, but that's sharp turn from outside off, through the gate as he misjudges the length and fails to adjust in time. Thumps leg stump, and now we've got a glimmer of a contest. 60/2
94b to JL du Plooy, six more dots needed! Du Plooy attempts the reverse-sweep and up goes the finger! There's a review... but it's academic. Off he trots.... 119/6
