15.2

Hogg to Peterson, 1 run, now turns himself totally around and ends up slapped it down to long on, definitely saw that against England

17.2

Watson to Peterson, 1 run, full and wide, slapped out to deep cover

Watson to Peterson, 1 run, goes the ramp moving across the off stump, gets hit on the pad from a full ball

South Africa 116/5   RJ Peterson 17* (11b 3x4)

18.1

Cummins to Peterson, no run, super delivery, quick and very full just outside off, can't get a bat on that

18.2

Cummins to Peterson, 2 runs, wide of off stump again, a swing on the front foot gets a whirl of an edge over point down to third man

Starc to Peterson, FOUR, full outside off stump, stepping across the stumps it's swung away to the leg side fence past midwicket

Starc to Peterson, FOUR, goes extra cover this time and it's away for four more! Great innings this, step to leg and cracked pact extra cover

19.3

Starc to Peterson, no run, full ball, gets the length right now, right in the block hole, evades the swipe to leg and through to the keeper

19.4

Starc to Peterson, FOUR, around the wicket, steps outside off and ramped to the fine leg fence, lovely execution, picked up really well that

19.5

Starc to Peterson, 1 bye, slower ball outside off, a huge swing from outside off is nowhere near but they go through for a bye to the keeper
