W
OUT! Hit Wicket. Jofra Archer to Liam Bowe. Yorker, outside off stump backing away driving, missed to wicketkeeper. Bowe is worried about the pace and goes so deep in his crease that he ends up striking the wickets with his bat. Hobart complete a comprehensive victory by 59 runs and they consolidate top spot. Melbourne on the other hand struggled to get going with the bat with only Seb Gotch getting into some kind of rhythm. They remain planted at the bottom and their hopes of a top four spot slip away.

OUT! Run Out. Riley Meredith to Jonathan Merlo. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to extra cover, direct hit by Rose. Hobart can do no wrong today. Rose collects the ball on his knees at extra cover and hits the stumps to leave Merlo short.

OUT! Caught. Riley Meredith to Liam Plunkett. Back of a length, off stump on the back foot pulling, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep square leg, by McDermott.
