View dismissal Q de Kock c †Haddin b Hogg 41 62 40 2 2 102.50
13.5 55.0 mph, that is a corker! de Kock can just tuck his bat in under his shoulder and walk back. Tossed up on middle and leg but once this hits the pitch it turns viciously. He was playing with a closed bat looking for midwicket. Only manages an outside edge through to the keeper's gloves. Terrific take from Haddin as well. There's another golden oldies combo 81/6
View dismissal HM Amla lbw b Starc 2 13 3 0 0 66.66
2.3 88.7 mph, plumb in front, a Starc inswinger does Mighty Hash in! This was a terrific ball, kept nice and full and it swung in rather sharply too. Amla was stuck in his crease and was swiping across the line. Very unlike him, but he's been troubled by the ones that are full and at his stumps lately 15/1
View dismissal F du Plessis* c Hogg b Maxwell 5 6 6 1 0 83.33
3.4 58.5 mph, oops, he's chipped that straight to mid-off and Maxi sends him off with a stare. This happed in slow-motion. Faf moved outside leg again, the bowler followed up with a full one. He lifted it and I guess he wanted to beat the fielder, but the fielder backpedaled and chipped it straight to him 20/2
View dismissal JP Duminy c Henriques b Maxwell 13 15 16 2 0 81.25
7.3 57.1 mph, he's picked out the man at deep cover! That was smoked, I tell you. Ah, actually he had to reach out and it went off the open face. Tossed up on leg stump and he made some room to loft it over the infield and he would have hoped for it to go over the ropes too, but has to watch has Henriques comes up and pouches an easy catch 44/3
View dismissal AB de Villiers c Hodge b Hogg 11 13 10 0 1 110.00
10.5 57.9 mph, they're all finding the fielders on the boundary! Neat catch by Hodge at deep sqauare leg. This was short and asking to be hit. AB obliged with a pull but he has struck it hard and flat. Hodge comes forward and picks it as it was dying on him 68/4
View dismissal DA Miller c Bailey b Henriques 2 9 7 0 0 28.57
12.4 78.9 mph, the ball is definitely holding up! This one goes straight to short cover. Length ball angled across him and Miller seeks a drive on the up. Bad shot considering the pitch and he perishes 75/5
View dismissal JA Morkel b Starc 18 17 11 0 2 163.63
16.3 86.4 mph, 139kph, take that! Yorker seeking to topple middle and Albie can't dig this out. Again favours making room, but this one isn't the kind of ball he can swing away to cow corner. Tries to kep it out but he's too slow 103/7

View dismissal AJ Finch c Miller b Imran Tahir 39 34 27 6 0 144.44
8.1 50.0 mph, he's gone! Tahir has done the trick! This was tossed up and Finch goes for the slog sweep. Doesn't get good enough bat and this gains too much height towards deep midwicket. Miller's there and he clings on to an important catch 67/2
View dismissal CL White c Imran Tahir b Parnell 14 19 11 2 0 127.27
4.5 80.8 mph, there's the wicket! Goes for the upper cut as this was dug in short and just outside off. Got far too much height on this and Tahir, at deep third man, collects a good catch 43/1
View dismissal SR Watson c du Plessis b Imran Tahir 35 38 28 2 2 125.00
13.1 51.9 mph, skewed straight up and it falls into the waiting hands of cover and Tahir is pumped! This was tossed up well wide of off stump, but Watto was looking for the slog sweep. The turn snares the edge and the batsman has to walk back 107/4
View dismissal GJ Maxwell lbw b Hendricks 17 20 12 2 0 141.66
12.4 82.7 mph, walks across his stumps to whip this away fine and is struck in line of middle. De Kock screams an appeal and the bowler joins in as an afterthought which I thought was strange, because this was pretty adjacent. Minor hiccup, or the start of a collapse? 105/3
