Botha to Watson, 1 wide, flighted outside leg and he goes for the sweep, tries to sweep it fine, misses but it's called a wide, that spun down

8.6

Botha to Watson, 1 run, superb fielding from JP Duminy, he was running to his right from deep midwicket, for a moment it seemed Watson had bisected that gap between Duminy and deep square leg but JP threw himself to his right, and in the end managed to keep them down to just a single, should have been for in Watson's mind
