South Africa 177/3   Shakib Al Hasan 8-0-36-0

44.1

Shakib Al Hasan to Kallis, 1 run, short on middle, punched down the ground to long-on

JH Kallis c & b Shakib Al Hasan 69 (88m 76b 5x4 1x6) SR: 90.78

44.4

Shakib Al Hasan to van Wyk, 1 run, quick single on the off side, played it off the back foot wide of cover

44.5

Shakib Al Hasan to du Plessis, no run, short ball down the leg side, tries to clip it square, misses, it's called a wide, Mushfiqur has appealed for a stumping as du Plessis did leave the crease for just a moment. The appeal for the stumping has been turned on but the review is for a caught-behind. Replays show there is definitely a deflection, but we can't really make out for sure if that was off the thigh pad or the bat. There is no Hot Spot. It's really difficult to make out. It's definitely not a wide, that's for sure. But even close-up replays are inconclusive. The benefit of the doubt goes to the batsman in the end. The wide has been reversed. Worth a review, definitely, but lack of technology the problem this time.

46.4

Shakib Al Hasan to van Wyk, OUT, bowled'im, kept low, came forward and then rocked back to a good length delivery, it didn't turn and he didn't really know what to do with it in the end, failed to get his bat down, got an underedge onto the pads and then onto the stumps

MN van Wyk b Shakib Al Hasan 5 (13m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00
