0.5

Doherty to Amla, 1 run, leg stump and clipped out to deep square

South Africa 2/1   HM Amla 1* (1b)

1.1

Starc to Amla, no run, length just outside off stump, left alone

1.2

Starc to Amla, 1 run, gets across his stumps and flicks a full ball well timed straight to the deep square fielder

South Africa 3/1   HM Amla 2* (3b)

2.4

Doherty to Amla, SIX, floated up again but Amla gives himself a little bit of room and lifts it over extra cover and it flies into the stands, awesome timing, picked up from off stump, heavens is this guy in good touch

2.5

Doherty to Amla, no run, dragged down a little short, the cut stroke only finds cover point

2.6

Doherty to Amla, 1 run, step down the track, fired into the pads, Amla adjusts and digs it out towards long off

South Africa 16/2   HM Amla 9* (6b 1x6)

3.1

Starc to Amla, no run, well bowled, little bit of shape in from just outside off, blocked back to the bowler from a length

3.2

Starc to Amla, no run, full of a good length, cut and missed at

3.3

Starc to Amla, 1 run, good drive to cover point, oh there's a huge mix up, a direct hit and Duminy is miles out, but the throw is so far wide of the one-stump Hussey had to aim at, lucky that for SA

South Africa 17/2   HM Amla 10* (9b 1x6)

4.1

Cummins to Amla, 1 run, back of a length around off stump, blocked into the covers, into the gap for a single

4.4

Cummins to Amla, FOUR, gives himself room and edges a length delivery past short long leg for four. Lucky that, tried to go through the off side but got a big edge

4.5

Cummins to Amla, 1 run, step across the stumps, flicks a full ball off middle to the deep square leg

South Africa 29/2   HM Amla 16* (12b 1x4 1x6)

5.2

Watson to Amla, 1 run, just outside off, driven off a big outside edge down to third man

5.4

Watson to Amla, no run, back of a length again, punched to cover

5.5

Watson to Amla, OUT, step across the stumps, goes to pull and gloved behind! Amla falls and Watson does the job again. A shorter ball, again not coming on as the batsman might expect, Amla went across his stumps to pull into the leg side, but was through with the stroke too soon and gloved a ball to Wade and walked straight off, what a blow for Australia

HM Amla c †Wade b Watson 17 (26m 15b 1x4 1x6) SR: 113.33

South Africa 33/3   HM Amla 17 (15b 1x4 1x6)
