    8.4 tossed up wide of the off stump, chipped to Ferguson at extra cover on the edge of the ring who takes a good catch! That's the end of Bryant, just as he was looking to get himself going. Cook sets him up well, first bowling from wide on the crease and skidding it into his pads, then floating one up wide and inviting the big shot. Top stuff 73/2
    3.2 picks out deep backward square! Back of a length again, pace-on this time, and Heazlett finds Ross on the rope. Straight down his throat - couldn't have offered him an easier chance if he'd tried - and it's a straightforward catch 37/1
    18.2 Lynn sends this up, up, up... and straight down deep midwicket's throat! Lynn was hitting into the wind, and that has helped the Thunder. Length ball from Green, not what he would have planned. But Lynn didn't get all of it looking to heave over the leg side, and after it swirled in the Canberra breeze, Alex Ross was underneath it and had enough awareness of his position to avoid treading on the rope 156/5
    14.4 picks out Hales at long-off! Important wicket, just as Lawrence was getting going. Tried to go down the ground once more, but not a good connection this time, and found Hales 10 yards off the rope. Gave himself a bit of room, but Cook followed him nicely 124/3
    17.1 rips out off stump! No better sight for a fast bowler. Cooper had shuffled across to cover off stump, McAndrew missed his yorker by a fraction and this was probably in the slot, to be honest. But Cooper couldn't get bat on it, and turned around to see his stump flying towards the Tasman Sea 140/4
    19.2 cutter, slightly full of a length on leg stump, and miscued up to Sangha at short third man. Catch is taken, and that brings a thrilling cameo to an end. Great stuff from Wildermuth, just what the Heat were missing in their first game. 177/6

    2.4 charges and slashes, Peirson snaffles the edge! It's the Hour of the Be-Wildermuth (one for the Badly Drawn Boy fans out there)! Three wickets in ten balls for the allrounder, and Thunder are threatening to go with barely a squeak 22/3
    0.2 timberrrrrrrrrrrr! Hales is bowled through the gate first up! Lovely angle from Wildermuth, the fresh Kooka coming back in off the seam - through a sizeable gap left by the batsman, it's probably fair to say. Perfect start for Heat with the ball 1/1
    0.6 plinked to mid-off and Wildermuth has two in the over! Tough to hit him off that length and Ferguson perishes with a flappy drive that barely reaches the edge of the ring... Two big blows and Thunder are 1 for 2 (or 2 for 1, if you really must) 1/2
    10.4 splat! Ross is hampered by a groin strain, apparently, and that's not going to help his stretching. A slow-motion yawn of a pull across a length ball on off stump, and back goes the peg with the bat arcing into a different realm! 80/5
    9.2 chipped tamely to long-on! Mujeeb breaks the stand, they had to try and get after him in pursuit of the bonus point, but Holt couldn't get under a flat, skiddy ball 71/4
    17.2 gottim! Steketee responds with a perfect length offcutter, slapping the top of middle as Cutting swings across the line. And don't the Heat love that! They've had the final word against their old team-mate, but can Cutting's new chums get the last laugh? 149/6
