Shane Watson402215.50121110
16.4 to LRPL Taylor, he's gone for it again but straight to Marsh at midwicket! Clever bowling from Watson there, actually, as he held it back just a touch. 117/5
Ashton Agar1018018.0030300
James Faulkner301826.0072000
7.1 to MJ Guptill, oh, he's holed out - short of a length and Guptil goes on the pull but picks out Maxwell at long-on who runs around the boundary and takes a good, low catch while on the move. Smartly pouched. 61/1
18.5 to L Ronchi, mistimes this completely, trying to hit over midwicket but finds Maxwell coming in from deep midwicket, who's about as safe a pair of hands as you can find, and he takes a smart, athletic take low by his laces. 133/6
Adam Zampa10303.0030000
Glenn Maxwell301826.0072000
8.2 to KS Williamson, Kane's gone! Williamson stepped to leg and tried to smash it for six over the top, but miscues a skier to Agar - Agar! - who takes it comfortably. 66/2
10.2 to CJ Anderson, Maxwell's done it again! Anderson's down the pitch, tries to clear long-off but Agar is hovering. He's skied this miles, and Agar's in position and takes it comfortably...on his knees, hands in front of his face, as though imploring the ball into his palm. 76/3
Mitchell Marsh402616.5093010
13.6 to C Munro, got him! Top, top class from Marsh - he's frustrated Munro for an over and an impetuous, angry, ill-advised front-footed pull picks out deep midwicket who clings on. 97/4

Corey Anderson402927.2572100
19.1 to JP Faulkner, goddim! Guptil takes a fine catch in the deep as Faulkner, The Finisher, tries to clobber this across the line into the midwicket stand but picks out Guptil who has huge, safe buckets, scooping it up on the run. 124/8
19.5 to NM Coulter-Nile, bowled him! Inside edge as NCN tries to carve this somewhere, anywhere, but can only find his stumps. 132/9
Adam Milne2022011.0044020
Grant Elliott201708.5032000
Mitchell McClenaghan301735.6692000
5.2 to SR Watson, Watto's fallen, hook, line and sinker - I think that may have been a slower ball, and he's driven it straight to mid-off. 44/1
18.1 to MR Marsh, outside off but a slower ball, and Marsh has misread it, skying a pull straight down Milne's throat at long-on - and that's a huge, huge wicket!. 121/6
18.5 to AC Agar, catch - great catch! Agar understandably goes for a pull on the front foot, attempting to heave it over midwicket for six, but picks out Taylor who - running about 15 or so yards - takes a neat, low catch. 123/7
Mitchell Santner403027.50100300
6.4 to SPD Smith, superb bowling. He gave this more flight, a tough wider too, luring Smith into dancing down the pitch, it gripped and spun away and the bails were whipped off. 51/2
10.1 to DA Warner, he's holed out! Warner's gone for a huge pull and picked out deep midwicket who barely has to move!. 66/4
Kane Williamson10303.0030000
Ish Sodhi401413.50110000
15.1 to GJ Maxwell, Maxwell's on the drive, lofting it, but he's skied it to Williamson at deep extra cover! No chance he'll drop that and he doesn't. 100/5
