6.3

Swann to Williamson, 1 run, flighted, dipping towards middle and leg as Williamson dances out and taps through midwicket

6.4

Swann to Nicol, no run, drags this a touch shorter, chopped back into the ground and mid-on prevents one

6.5

Swann to Nicol, OUT, Nicol goes for the six-hit to deep square leg that served him so well against Sri Lanka ... but this time he picks out the man on the fence! This pitch is a touch slower, the ball came off the toe of the bat rather than the meat and sailed to deep square, who set himself a few yards in from the boundary
