Mohammad Irfan to Amla, FOUR, that should relieve the pressure, this was much too short and wide outside off, Amla hops at the crease and punches it wide of backward point

South Africa 13/0   HM Amla 7* (10b 1x4)   Mohammad Irfan 2.1-0-10-0

Junaid Khan to Ingram, FOUR, well played, this was short of a length and Ingram was expecting that length by staying on the back foot, went across and pulled it across the line wide of square leg

South Africa 19/0   CA Ingram 10* (21b 1x4)   Junaid Khan 2.5-0-6-0

Junaid Khan to Amla, FOUR, nicely played, Junaid brings the ball back in and drifts on the pads, Amla works his wrists well and whips it easily down to deep midwicket

South Africa 24/0   HM Amla 12* (23b 2x4)   Junaid Khan 3.4-0-11-0

Junaid Khan to Amla, FOUR, poor delivery, this was a slower ball on the pads and with only a square leg in place Amla only had to place it slightly wide of him, forced it to the leg side

South Africa 28/0   HM Amla 16* (25b 3x4)   Junaid Khan 4-0-15-0

Junaid Khan to Ingram, FOUR, the extra delivery costs a boundary! 143 kph, this was pitched up and Ingram was eyeing the long-off boundary, he sort of mistimed it and it was in the air but mid-off was wide, he couldn't get around quickly to his left to intercept it

South Africa 36/0   CA Ingram 17* (34b 2x4)   Junaid Khan 5-0-22-0

Wahab Riaz to Amla, FOUR, streaky! Not the best ball, full and wide outside the off stump, Amla shaped to drive through the covers and gets an inside edge past the stumps

South Africa 41/0   HM Amla 22* (28b 4x4)   Wahab Riaz 0.1-0-4-0

Wahab Riaz to Amla, FOUR, 144 kph, super timing! This was fractionally wide outside off and Amla stayed beside the line and played it late, guided it wide of backward point

South Africa 51/0   HM Amla 29* (39b 5x4)   Wahab Riaz 1.5-0-10-0

Mohammad Hafeez to Amla, FOUR, outside edge but no slip! Tossed up outside off and Amla was a bit early on the shot, wanted to drive through extra cover, edge races past Akmal

South Africa 64/1   HM Amla 37* (45b 6x4)   Mohammad Hafeez 3.2-0-13-1

Wahab Riaz to Amla, FOUR, adjusted well there, this was short and wide outside off and Amla hopped at the crease to negotiate that, importantly he kept it down and placed it wide of backward point, third man gave up after a few seconds

South Africa 77/1   HM Amla 45* (56b 7x4)   Wahab Riaz 4.3-0-24-0

Saeed Ajmal to Amla, FOUR, another reverse sweep and this time he finds the gap at third man, placed it finer and he middled it, Junaid had no chance

South Africa 95/1   HM Amla 60* (72b 8x4)   Saeed Ajmal 1.4-0-10-0

Mohammad Hafeez to du Plessis, FOUR, good adjustment there, Du Plessis made room before the bowler delivered, Hafeez made the mistake of tossing it up wide outside off, the batsman went forward and drove it wide of mid-off, it's the 50 stand as well

South Africa 103/1   F du Plessis 17* (28b 1x4)   Mohammad Hafeez 7.5-0-30-1

Saeed Ajmal to du Plessis, FOUR, put away with force! Ajmal from round the wicket, on the pads, the leg side not very well protected and he swept it firmly to deep square leg

South Africa 117/1   F du Plessis 24* (34b 2x4)   Saeed Ajmal 3.1-0-19-0

Mohammad Irfan to Amla, (no ball) FOUR, it's a no-ball for height! Slips out and it was wide outside off, Amla slashes and there's no slip, down to third man

South Africa 130/2   HM Amla 76* (87b 9x4)   Mohammad Irfan 6.5-1-25-1

Saeed Ajmal to Duminy, FOUR, tossed up wide outside the off stump and he spanks it on the front foot, deep extra cover dives and fumbles

South Africa 153/3   JP Duminy 6* (9b 1x4)   Saeed Ajmal 6.3-0-32-1

Wahab Riaz to de Villiers, FOUR, how easy was that? This was short of a length and on the pads, AB played a one-legged pull, timed it well and his placement was even better - bisected fine leg and deep square leg, excellent stuff

South Africa 179/3   AB de Villiers 27* (27b 1x4 1x6)   Wahab Riaz 6.4-0-37-0

Wahab Riaz to Miller, FOUR, some relief for SA there, this was a low full toss, attempted another yorker, clipped across the line and beats deep square leg

South Africa 215/6   DA Miller 13* (20b 1x4)   Wahab Riaz 7.4-0-46-0

Junaid Khan to Peterson, FOUR, nobody moved, Junaid bowls a half volley wide outside off and with many fielders in the circle on the off side he was asking for trouble, Peterson crashed that past the covers

South Africa 221/6   RJ Peterson 9* (10b 1x4)   Junaid Khan 7.2-0-35-0

Junaid Khan to Peterson, FOUR, not a bad over at all so far for SA! Junaid reverts to the yorker length, it's a low full toss, Peterson makes room and drives wide of mid-off, fielder gives up the chase

South Africa 226/6   RJ Peterson 13* (11b 2x4)   Junaid Khan 7.3-0-40-0

Junaid Khan to Miller, FOUR, the boundary count for the over increases, it's a low full toss and he makes room and the outside edge runs to third man

South Africa 231/6   DA Miller 19* (23b 2x4)   Junaid Khan 7.5-0-45-0
