6b to AM Rossington, on the charge, but he's hit this up the chimney! Belligerent whack, aiming to go down the ground, but toe-ended almost straight up, a dolly of a catch for mid-off. Little Chef serves up the first Rockets wicket. 8/1
85b to DW Lawrence, full toss, wristed to deep midwicket! Think Sam Hain has done well here... they are checking whether he kept his feet clear of the rope, popping the ball into the air as he stepped out of bounds and the back in, but Lawrence is walking. No hundred for the Spirit captain, but it's been a sparkling knock. Hain took the catch well and then had to steady himself, but it was all in order. 160/4
29b to Z Crawley, comes down, but holes out to long-off! It's a much bigger hit there and Crawley slices across the ball slightly, never had the power. Well held coming in off the rope by Cook. Important wicket for Rockets, Sodhi breaking the stand. 54/2
45b to MS Wade, goes for the slog-sweep but it's all height and no trousers! Almost to the point that it lands safely in no man's land, but Daniel Sams comes haring in off the deep midwicket rope and takes an excellent diving catch. Sodhi bags another. 79/3

TOTAL100 balls (RPB: 1.93)193/5
Fall of wickets: 1-3 (Dawid Malan, 6b), 2-18 (Alex Hales, 21b), 3-75 (Tom Kohler-Cadmore, 51b), 4-144 (Colin Munro, 82b), 5-187 (Daniel Sams, 97b) • DRS
6b to DJ Malan, booming inswinger, castled! Worrall curls this back malevolently, the ball thudding into the base of middle and off. First one he's really pitched up and it swerves at Malan like a banana, the bat not in the same postcode as he the timber takes a tumble. Spirit strike early. 3/1
21b to AD Hales, nicked behind! Not a particularly special delivery this time, just back of a length in the channel and Hales throws the bat, feathers through to the keeper. He turns and walks, Rockets lose a second wicket. Frankie can do no wrong with the ball today. 18/2
97b to DR Sams, full and straight, 88mph, pins him in front! Sams misses with a heave across the line and looks gone... but he reviews, perhaps in desperation. Struck on the knee roll and ball-tracking has it smashing into middle. Up goes the finger again. Ellis makes a crucial breakthrough at the vital juncture!. 187/5
51b to T Kohler-Cadmore, flubbed into the covers, gone! Fired in wicket-to-wicket and TKC tries to shovel it over the off side, can't get the power as the ball skips on. Simple take for Lawrence inside the circle. Dawson breaks the stand. 75/3
82b to C Munro, heaved leg side, but picks out the boundary rider! Fired in full and Munro couldn't get the elevation he was looking for, hitting to the longer side of the ground and Ellis pouches it safely. The crowd groans in content. 144/4
