View dismissal RJ Peterson b Hopes 34 44 27 3 2 125.92
10.3 Peterson gives himself way too much room and exposes the stumps too much for his liking, Hopes fires it on the blockhole and the ball cannons onto the stumps, the bails are splattered 71/3
View dismissal HH Gibbs b Bracken 20 13 13 1 1 153.84
2.5 timber! And Bracken has his revenge! He cleverly bowls the slower ball and Gibbs fails to read it as he swings early and misses, the ball clips the top of the off stump and he's got to go 22/1
View dismissal AB de Villiers c White b Laughlin 0 5 5 0 0 0.00
3.6 doesn't take too long for Laughlin to strike, not really a wicket-taking ball, it was full and wide and waiting to be hit but de Villiers gets forward and ends up slamming it straight to White at short cover 24/2
View dismissal JP Duminy b Harwood 23 42 28 1 0 82.14
14.6 lucky strike for Harwood! He bowls a full toss on the stumps and Duminy moves across his stumps to paddle it away but misses and his leg stump is flattened 96/4
View dismissal RE van der Merwe c †Haddin b Harwood 48 28 30 2 4 160.00
17.3 he goes for 48, Harwood drops it short and van der Merwe makes room to slice it through the off side, the short length foxes him and he has no room to work with and as a result he gets a faint edge to Haddin 133/5
