    18.3 taken at deep midwicket. Drops the slower ball short as he follows him down leg side. QDK pulls but it's off the top edge and is taken a few yards inside. End of a sensational innings. He has singlehandedly kept them in this game 158/9

    8.5 given lbw. Mendis with the slider on a length and he goes back again to try and pull through midwicket. It keeps low and hits his back leg. Might have been close on impact, but he looked to be in line with off stump 83/1
    9.3 brilliant yorker! Bosch nails it at an off stump line. Phehlukwayo shuffles and wants to go across the line through the wide mid-on region, but his big backlift is his downfall. This smashes into off stump with a harmonious thump 84/2
    10.1 beaten in flight and stumped! Lovely bowling from Williams. Gets it to dip outside off and draws Behardien into a cover drive. He's not close to the pitch of it and is beaten by the marginal turn. A quick stumping catches him outside, as replays confirm. That's the captain gone. 87/3
    10.2 guided straight to slip! Asif Ali is gone first ball, and very softly. Once again, the slow floated delivery outside poses a simple test of the technique that the batsman can't pass. Dipping at a length outside off, turning away. He pokes at it away from the body and follows the turn with his hands. Williams on a hat-trick 87/4
    11.1 another one! They're completely falling apart now, Cape Town Blitz. A full ball slanted across the corridor. He looks to drive on the up but gets a thin edge through to the keeper who collects to his left at waist height. That's the fifth wicket in four overs 90/5
    12.2 taken at mid-off. A poor shot from Nawaz. Short of a length ball just outside off. Tries to force this over mid-off on the up and gets it off the high part of the bat. De Villiers doesn't have to move too much to take this 96/6
    13.3 taken at first slip. Length ball turns and bounces rapidly outside off. He looks to defend but is pushing far away from his body. Thick edge lobs harmlessly towards Kleinveldt 100/7
    13.5 Steyn may be run out here! Short of a length outside off. Chopped towards point and he has hit the stumps direct. Steyn is shot, third umpire confirms. Some doubt there about whether the keeper's gloves hit the stumps before the ball, but it is clear, it was ball. 101/8

    3.5 chopped on. Cross-seam length ball just outside off. Backs away and looks to slice this square, but it's onto the stumps off the under edge 29/1
    9 full outside off, steps out and looks to loft it over long-off, but he is not close. Pushes away from the body and chips a simple catch for Burger at long-off 64/2
    10.1 soft signal is out as long-on gets his fingers under this mistimed pull shot. It was dropped short outside off and he got the pull right off the bottom of the bat. It dipped on the fielder but he took it, lunging ahead and to his left 68/3
    11.4 he's got him! A tame end to a tame innings, really. Length ball in at leg stump. He looks to swat it away through the leg side and gets an inside edge onto his pad. It then rolls onto the stumps after this deflection. Like De Bruyn before him, AB just couldn't get the timing right on this sluggish pitch 75/4

    16.5 off the thigh and onto the stumps. A slower ball from Burger, very well disguised. At a length and headed for leg stump. He looks to tickle it around the corner behind square on the leg side and is done in 102/8
    12.4 finds long-off. It's coming apart. Length ball at the stumps, flat and angled inward. Backs away and looks to go over long-off but the connection isn't good enough. Quality spell from Nawaz 80/5
    14.4 lbw turned down but he's run out. Length ball at middle stump. Looks to play the reverse sweep and is struck in front of the stumps. Looked plumb but the umpire didn't agree. Didn't matter though. Wiliams has run down without knowing where the ball is. QDK swoops down pitch side and chucks to hit the stumps direct 91/6
    16.2 slower ball at a length, wide outside off. Deceives him as he shapes for a heave and he ends up chipping it to extra cover 97/7
    17.2 hits leg stump. Length and in at the stumps. He backs away and looks to chop it but that is too fast for him 104/9
    18.2 rolls onto the stumps. Length ball down leg side. He looks to heave it away but it comes off the back of his bat and trickles onto the stumps as he looks behind and slips 112/10
