Starc to Kallis, FOUR, full ball just outside off, didn't seem to be perfectly timed, but gets it down the ground for four, had to slightly drag it but effective

South Africa 7/1   JH Kallis 5* (5b 1x4)   MA Starc 0.5-0-5-0

Starc to Duminy, FOUR, fuller and this drive finds the gap between point and cover and runs to the rope

South Africa 22/2   JP Duminy 5* (5b 1x4)   MA Starc 2-0-12-0

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

South Africa 28/2   HM Amla 15* (11b 1x4 1x6)   PJ Cummins 0.4-0-6-0

Cummins to Duminy, FOUR, forward and a fine drive past extra cover, this is well timed, played really well that

South Africa 40/3   JP Duminy 13* (11b 2x4)   PJ Cummins 1.4-0-14-0

Hogg to Duminy, FOUR, slightly too short and whipped out to the midwicket boundary, placed very well

South Africa 47/3   JP Duminy 18* (13b 3x4)   GB Hogg 0.2-0-5-0

Watson to Duminy, FOUR, short and pulled wide of long leg, the slower nature of the pitch should make those short balls easier to put away today, got on top of it nicely and helped it behind square

South Africa 54/3   JP Duminy 23* (18b 4x4)   SR Watson 1.3-0-9-1

Watson to Behardien, FOUR, but the batsman responds and goes up and over mid off for four, poor ball considering the field, struck well enough

South Africa 91/5   F Behardien 12* (13b 1x4)   SR Watson 2.4-0-17-2

Hogg to Peterson, FOUR, now we saw Peterson do this against England briefly, a big switch hit, changed his hands, times it pretty well and evades the dive of the cover sweeper

South Africa 98/5   RJ Peterson 5* (2b 1x4)   GB Hogg 2.1-0-20-0

Hogg to Peterson, FOUR, goes for another switch hit and another good connection, picks the gap too between point and short third man

South Africa 104/5   RJ Peterson 10* (4b 2x4)   GB Hogg 3-0-26-0

Watson to Peterson, FOUR, oh dear, a loose delivery for the first time in ages, full toss outside off, whacked wide of long on and finds the rope on the bounce

South Africa 115/5   RJ Peterson 16* (10b 3x4)   SR Watson 3.4-0-26-2

Cummins to Behardien, FOUR, short ball, hooked at, comes off the gloves and balloons over the keeper's head for four

South Africa 125/5   F Behardien 24* (24b 2x4)   PJ Cummins 3.4-0-26-0

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

South Africa 136/5   RJ Peterson 24* (15b 4x4)   MA Starc 3.1-0-21-0

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