3.2

Steyn to Bell, no run, very full this time and Bell jabs down on it

Steyn to Bell, FOUR, good response from Bell, Steyn went for the short ball but it sat up very gently and gave Bell plenty of time to pull it in front of square

4.4

Peterson to Bell, OUT, gone! He has another. Bell tries to use his feet but doesn't get to the pitch and only succeeds in popping a catch back towards Peterson who dives low to his left and takes a superb catch. Lovely piece of bowling to beat the batsman in flight
