Shafiul Islam to Amla, FOUR, found the gap, short of a good length outside off, Amla gets back and plays his favourite punch through point and cover, races away and silences the crowd

South Africa 6/0   HM Amla 5* (4b 1x4)   Shafiul Islam 1-0-6-0

Rubel Hossain to Smith, FOUR, four, poor line from Rubel, full on the pads and it's flicked away past short fine leg for a boundary

South Africa 12/0   GC Smith 5* (5b 1x4)   Rubel Hossain 0.3-0-4-0

Rubel Hossain to Amla, FOUR, Amla's looking good, just eased that through the game, a driving length, leans forward and just caresses it through the covers

South Africa 17/0   HM Amla 9* (5b 2x4)   Rubel Hossain 1-0-9-0

Shafiul Islam to Smith, FOUR, four more, straying on the pads is Shafiul, it's easy pickings for Smith who whips it away past short fine leg, poor line with such a field

South Africa 21/0   GC Smith 10* (9b 2x4)   Shafiul Islam 1.2-0-10-0

Shafiul Islam to Amla, FOUR, no stopping Amla, Amla receives an almost identical delivery to what Smith got the previous ball. But one's in form, the other's not. Amla absolutely cannons that through the covers, Smith had got an outside edge to third man. Complete contrast

South Africa 26/0   HM Amla 13* (6b 3x4)   Shafiul Islam 1.5-0-15-0

Rubel Hossain to Smith, FOUR, that should give him lots of encouragement, full and wide and Smith leans forward to ease that through extra cover for a boundary, lovely timing

South Africa 37/0   GC Smith 19* (19b 3x4)   Rubel Hossain 2.3-0-16-0

Rubel Hossain to Amla, FOUR, edged but there's no slip, short of a good length, gets on the back foot to try to punch it past over, gets a thick outside edge and flies through the vacant slip region to the third-man boundary, Rubel's upset, but he knew there was no slip

South Africa 44/0   HM Amla 19* (15b 4x4)   Rubel Hossain 3-0-23-0

Abdur Razzak to Smith, FOUR, short and Smith seizes the chance, waits for it to turn in and cuts it behind point, through the short-third man region for four welcome runs, used the pace well there

South Africa 61/0   GC Smith 31* (40b 4x4)   Abdur Razzak 3.2-1-10-0

Naeem Islam to Amla, FOUR, Amla's shot of the day, waited for it to turn in, had eyed his gap, made a bit of room and punched it into the vacant area between cover and extra cover, lovely timing

South Africa 73/0   HM Amla 35* (33b 5x4)   Naeem Islam 3.5-0-18-0

Naeem Islam to Amla, FOUR, almost identical except that the previous one was all timing, this one had a bit more force behind it, turning in again and he made way to crunch that between cover and point, worries, plenty of them, for the hosts

South Africa 77/0   HM Amla 39* (34b 6x4)   Naeem Islam 4-0-22-0

Shakib Al Hasan to Kallis, FOUR, a boundary in quite some time, waited for it, that was the key, turned away after pitching outside off and he cut it between point and cover

South Africa 105/1   JH Kallis 6* (5b 1x4)   Shakib Al Hasan 3.5-0-14-0

South Africa 149/3   JH Kallis 31* (35b 3x4)   Shafiul Islam 2.5-0-24-0

Shakib Al Hasan to du Plessis, FOUR, plenty of power behind that, short on the off, rocks back and thwacks it past extra cover, there is a deep cover in place but he had no chance

South Africa 172/3   F du Plessis 17* (19b 1x4)   Shakib Al Hasan 7.2-0-31-0

Shakib Al Hasan to Kallis, FOUR, misfield by Razzak proves costly, concedes four, plenty of fumbles today, short and Kallis cuts it towards point, Razzak allows it to roll through his legs to the ropes, misfielding off the captain's bowling is best avoidable

South Africa 177/3   JH Kallis 42* (51b 4x4)   Shakib Al Hasan 8-0-36-0

Naeem Islam to du Plessis, FOUR, horrible ball first up, short ball on leg stump, du Plessis swivels and helps that on its way past short fine leg for a boundary

Abdur Razzak to du Plessis, FOUR, unfortunate this time is Razzak, hurried onto the batsman, was the arm ball, and kept low as well. du Plessis got low and his bat down in time, it took the inside edge, went past short fine, Shafiul chased well and dived but his body made contact with the ropes as he was trying to drag it back in

South Africa 239/4   F du Plessis 50* (48b 4x4 1x6)   Abdur Razzak 9.4-1-45-1

Rubel Hossain to Peterson, FOUR, edged and four, he would be familiar with that shot, inside edge as he went for a pull over midwicket, went instead to the fine-leg boundary, 250 up for South Africa

South Africa 253/6   RJ Peterson 4* (1b 1x4)   Rubel Hossain 6.4-0-40-2

Rubel Hossain to Botha, FOUR, Botha plays the scoop and it pays off, there is a short fine leg in place but he just managed to evade him, full on middle and leg and he scoops it over the in-field to the ropes

South Africa 258/6   J Botha 7* (4b 1x4)   Rubel Hossain 7-0-45-2

Shafiul Islam to Peterson, FOUR, Peterson gets it past short fine, slower one bowled down the leg side, was a poor delivery and Peterson swings it over that fielder for four more
