2.1

Morkel to Vilas, FOUR, leg-stump half-volley, and clipped away for an easy four. Gift certificate encashed

2.2

Morkel to Vilas, 1 run, short of a length, more towards off than leg, they tip and run, this has hardly gone off the square on the leg side. Vilas' bat is between the throw and the stumps, which means he is also in comofrtably

Cape Cobras 20/1   DJ Vilas 6* (3b 1x4)

3.3

3.6

Ashwin to Vilas, 1 run, offbreak now, Vilas comes down the track to hit it to midwicket

Cape Cobras 34/1   DJ Vilas 7* (7b 1x4)

Cape Cobras 35/1   DJ Vilas 8* (9b 1x4)

5.3

Bravo to Vilas, 1 leg bye, slow again, beats his bat with the offcut, concedes the leg-bye, though

Cape Cobras 42/2   DJ Vilas 8* (10b 1x4)

6.1

Jakati to Vilas, 1 run, short, just outside off, cut away to deep point

6.4

Jakati to Vilas, 1 leg bye, moves too far across to try and weep this full delivery, hit on the pads in front, pitched off, hit in front of appeal, and hence the big lbw appeal The umpire says not out. The Hawkeye projection seems completely off to me. It says missing leg by a long way

6.6

Jakati to Vilas, 1 wide, fired down the leg side this time

6.6

Jakati to Vilas, no run, tossed up on middle and leg, pushed back to the bowler

Cape Cobras 53/2   DJ Vilas 9* (13b 1x4)

7.2

Raina to Vilas, SIX, Thump. Whack. Monster. Length ball on the pads, he doesn't even get close to the pitch of the ball, which allows him the elevation, and up she goes over square leg

7.3

Raina to Vilas, 1 run, punched away to sweeper-cover

7.5

Raina to Vilas, 1 run, the drifter outside off, cut away for a single

Cape Cobras 63/2   DJ Vilas 17* (16b 1x4 1x6)

8.2

Bravo to Vilas, no run, short, regulation pace finally, pulled away, midwicket makes a diving save

8.3

Bravo to Vilas, 1 run, length ball outside off, dabbed away for a single to third man

8.6

Bravo to Vilas, OUT, Bravo strikes. That slower ball retains some surprise even after blatant overuse. Vilas makes room and is perhaps playing for the offcutter, but this one goes straight and hits the off stump. Bravo is kicked

DJ Vilas b Bravo 18 (33m 19b 1x4 1x6) SR: 94.73

Cape Cobras 67/3   DJ Vilas 18 (19b 1x4 1x6)
