8.3

Best to Ingram, 1 run, short of a length, on off, punched to deep point

8.4

Best to Amla, no run, what a ball Yorker at 149.9ks. And well done Amla too. This is in front of off, but he has got the bat down in time, and got some cue on it

8.5

Best to Amla, 1 run, short of a length, only 147ks this time, Amla plays with soft hands and takes a single into the covers. That can be frustrating when you are bowling that fast

16.4

Best to de Villiers, 2 runs, full toss, 146ks, driven wide of deep cover for a couple

16.5

Best to de Villiers, SIX, top-edged for six. That's straight from the IPL. Bouncer, no room, headed for the head, at 145ks, but the short straight boundaries means fine leg has no chance
