    5.2 flicked right down the throat of deep square leg. Oh, dear. Do catches come easier than that? This was full and sliding into the pads, it was as if Smith didn't know there was a man there. 39/2
    2.5 backs away and slaps this length delivery straight to Green at mid-off. Guptill can't believe he's picked him out. Timed superbly, placement not-so-good. 19/1
    5.3 make that two in two, he now has the big man Amla. This is full on off, the ball holds onto the surface to make Amla check his drive, so he ends up lobbing it to point. There is a big patch of grass where the ball landed to bounce just a little more than Amla anticipated 39/3
    18.5 slower delivery, he backs away and then ends up dragging it towards long-on, stunning catch. He ran in early, saw the ball dying on him and then dived full length forward. Sydney batsman caught by a Sydney batsman. 160/5
    12.1 why would you chance the second when the boundaries are being reeled off so easily? That Hope slipped at the non-striker's end as he turned didn't help either. He whipped this with the spin, good work at deep square with a one-bounce throw to the keeper. Dangerous partnership nipped in the bud. 89/4
    19.4 high, very very high. No timing, no power. Looked to clear long-off but ends up slicing it and the 21-year old judges this to perfection. He was a good 15 yards inside the ring at long-off. Then realised he had to take three-four steps back even as this descended quickly, held his balance and managed to pull it off. 165/6
    19.6 has he cleared the fence? No, straight to Green at long-on. That's the end of that. Superb finish for Amazon Warriors 165/7

    9.1 steps out and lifts this straight to the long-on fielder. Didn't get the elevation, good catch. That should give them some respite. 96/1

    14.4 has Smith taken it at long-on? This is magnificent. Clobbered to the boundary where Smith takes it literally a centimeter inside the skirting, but knows for sure that he's going over. Just as he is about to, he tosses the ball in the air, goes out, regathers himself, comes back in and because the ball has been tossed high, there is enough time for him to come back in and complete the grab. The best part of the catch was Smith had to go sideways in taking that because the ball swirled a bit, this threw him off balance, so that he has managed to pull this off shows great flexibility and core strength. Simply magnificent. 146/2
