14.1

Watson to de Villiers, OUT, or not as the case may be! De Villiers slaps this straight to extra cover and is caught easily! It was a slower ball on middle stump, de Villiers backed away to try and go over the off side but misread the pace of the ball and could only chip it straight to the fielder who claimed a simple chance at chest height

AB de Villiers c Bailey b Watson 21 (36m 24b 0x4 0x6) SR: 87.50

South Africa 86/5   AB de Villiers 21 (24b)
