Hilfenhaus to Amla, OUT, pulled straight to White at short midwicket! The short ball works for Hilfenhaus, Amla tries to collect from outside off stump but plays it high off the bat to the fielder

South Africa 40/2   JP Duminy 2* (4b)   BW Hilfenhaus 2-0-13-1

7.2

DJ Hussey to van Jaarsveld, OUT, and it works! Hussey floats that up full on the stumps, van Jaarsveld doesn't get far enough across as he goes for the sweep, and cops it flush on the pad in front of middle and leg

VB van Jaarsveld lbw b DJ Hussey 0 (2m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

South Africa 41/3   JP Duminy 3* (5b)   DJ Hussey 0.2-0-1-1

17.1

Bracken to JA Morkel, OUT, swung down to long -on! Bracken strikes first ball, pitching it just outside off stump, Morkel connects well with the big swipe but David Hussey runs across and from long-off and takes the ball to his right, very well held, even as the other fielder converged from the other side

JA Morkel c DJ Hussey b Bracken 19 (15m 13b 1x4 1x6) SR: 146.15

South Africa 128/5   JP Duminy 49* (32b 5x4 1x6)   NW Bracken 2.1-0-6-1
