View dismissal RE Levi b Badree 0 2 0 0 0.00
0.2 Billy's crooked finger doesn't matter. Badree has hit the off stump. Not sure Levi has been watching Badree bowl against other teams. He plays for the legbreak, the ball skids through. Off pole gone. No excuse for not knowing that Badree doesn't turn the ball 0/1
View dismissal HH Gibbs c Bravo b Rampaul 2 9 0 0 22.22
3.1 Not the pitch to be doing this Hersch. Makes room to go over mid-on, the ball is short of a length, holds up on the surface, Gibbs is early into the shot, and manages only a lob to mid-of 10/2
View dismissal DJ Vilas c D Ganga b Narine 54 44 7 0 122.72
14.2 the legbreak again. Needlessly to say he doesn't pick it as he goes for the pull from outside off. The top edge settles with cover. Important hand from Vilas, a fighting fifty. This track isn't made for attractive cricket anyway 97/3
OA Shah not out 63 50 6 1 126.00
View dismissal JP Duminy b Cooper 9 11 0 0 81.81
18.3 the slower cutter does the job again. Duminy looks to slog this, but Cooper is accurate and sneaks through as Duminy is beaten for the slowness 125/4

View dismissal LMP Simmons c sub (AG Puttick) b Kleinveldt 9 16 1 0 56.25
5.3 Gone. Simmons has been tied down. Tries to free himself up. Breaks down. Tries the bis slog, Rory has bowled this cross-seam, the ball doesn't quite come on, and he ends up slicing it. Puttick, substituting for Shah, takes a good safe catch running back 26/2
View dismissal WKD Perkins lbw b Steyn 6 9 1 0 66.66
2.4 Too bloody good Dale Steyn. I have spent two weeks commentating on this tournament on dead and low and slow pitches, and I have finally seen skill. Exciting sill. For two overs ona dead pitch Steyn has been beating the outside edge with his outswingers, but this time he goes for the magic ball. Pitches middle and leg, beats the bat with the straightening, hits him in front of middle and off. Plumb 8/1
View dismissal DM Bravo c & b Kemp 29 36 1 0 80.55
14.2 Kemp's buckethands and height at work. Bravo can't believe it. This is a length ball wide outside off, Bravo has dragged it back to mis-hit it over Kemp's head. Or so he thinks. All Kemp has to do is go up and pluck it like a fruit 82/5
View dismissal AB Barath b Kemp 16 16 1 1 100.00
10.4 Kemp comes back with a yorker to dislodge the leg stump. The drop has cost Vilas a six and a four. This was quicker than Kemp's usual pace, angled in, hit the toe of Barath and rolled onto the leg stump. Vilas is relieved and elated 61/3
View dismissal D Ganga* b Kemp 0 1 0 0 0.00
10.5 Kemp is on a hat-trick. Daren Ganga's rather disappointing tournament with the bat ends, unless the rest can pull off a miracle here. This is a length ball, outside off, Ganga looks to drive. As it happens with slow pitches, the inside edge is taken, and the furniture disturbed 61/4
View dismissal D Ramdin b Peterson 24 21 2 0 114.28
17.1 lovely bowling. Takes heart to flight it, bowl slowly when the batsmen are going after everything. Ramdin is through his slog-sweep before the ball arrives and takes his middle stump. It might not come down to Steyn after all 105/7
View dismissal S Ganga lbw b Langeveldt 11 7 0 1 157.14
16.4 Plumb lbw. Cobras get ahead again. Ganga is rooted deep in his crease, and swings without any foot movement. Langeveldt is on a length, straight, and this ball would have taken middle and off out. Too plumb even for Billy Bowden 103/6
KK Cooper not out 25 11 1 2 227.27
View dismissal R Rampaul c sub (AG Puttick) b Langeveldt 7 5 1 0 140.00
19.1 Another twist. The slower ball. Rampaul slog-seeps, gets a meaty top edge. Caught by Puttick at long-on, but he has brought Cooper on strike 129/8
