2.5 caught at mid on! A screamer from Bravo! Length ball on middle, he lofts over mid on, doesn't nail it, Bravo takes a couple of steps back on the circle, jumps up with the right hand and reels in a superb catch! He timed his jump beautifully! He had to jump high and it stuck in the right hand. 30/1
    3.2 caught at deep point by Maddinson! Another incredible catch! Finch advances to a length ball outside off, he slices a lofted drive high towards point, Maddinson is on the rope at deep cover-point, he had to run a long way to his left and got there with two hands and held it brilliantly rolling to the turf! 30/2
    3.4 bowled him! Poor shot! Good length off cutter on middle and leg, he backs away and swings wildly trying to swipe this over the leg side, it beats the inside of the bat and crashes into middle and leg three-quarters of the way up! 30/3
    12.4 caught at deep backward square! A slower ball, fuller on leg, he flicks this in the air with the angle trying to clear the rope, didn't get all of it, Maddinson camps under it 5 metres in from the rope and takes the catch easily 74/5
    4.6 Bowled him! Slower ball shoots low! He bowled a slower ball off cutter, digging it in back of a length, he tried a cross bat pull shot, he expected more bounce, it stayed a touch low, shot under the bat and hit the top of off! 33/4
    14.6 caught at long on! Good catch by Gulbis. He tossed it up bravely, Nabi skips out and tries to launch over long on, hits it well but it's a huge boundary, Gulbis is back on the rope, jumps up and takes a good two-handed catch above his head 92/6
    16.5 caught and bowled! Well bowled Zampa. Top spinner, good length, he tries to knock it into the leg side but closes the face a touch and bunts a leading edge back to Zampa. He takes the catch rolling to his right! Christian yells at himself for the error 103/7
    18.3 caught at deep square! Length slower ball outside off, he tries to swing this over square leg like Boyce did, mistimes it, it carries all the way to Maddinson near the rope and he takes another catch 116/8
    18.6 caught at mid on! The man comes into the circle and he falls for the trap! It was a 91kph slower ball fuller length, he might have been expecting a short ball with the field change, he backs away and miscues a heave off the toe, hits it straight to the man at mid on and it's an easy catch 118/9
    not out
    19.3 Bowled him! 131kph inswinger! He was expecting the slower ball and he fired the faster inswinger, straight through the gate and flattened leg stump! Too good 121/10

    0.2 Bowled him! He's done it again! Stunning piece of bowling! Slower off break, drifting into off from wide around the wicket, pitches off stump, grips and turns, beats the outside edge and hits the top of off! He wasn't expecting that much turn! Superb delivery 1/1
    3.6 caught at cover! 117kph slower ball deceives him! Back of a length, held up in the pitch, he punches off the back foot in the air straight to cover and White takes the catch! Richardson celebrates like Stoinis does when he takes a wicket, the hulk flex directed at Stoinis! 20/2
    6.4 Maxwell run out trying for two! Richardson got him with a perfect throw! Stoinis clips this powerfully through square leg to the gap in the deep, Richardson races around, they take on the throw with a second run, Richardson fires a rocket, right next to the bails at the bowler's end, Boyce barely has to move his hands to knock the bails off! He was well short 35/3
    16.6 caught at deep square leg! Bounced him out this time! Another short one but a little higher and wider, he pulls hard, gets a good piece of it but not enough to clear the rope at square leg, Harris waits under it and takes the catch! Another twist 98/4
