View dismissal C Kieswetter b M Morkel 50 51 32 3 3 156.25
10.2 now tries the Buttler scoop and gets bowled falling outside off stump, beaten for pace really and a full ball strikes middle and off stumps 112/4
View dismissal MJ Lumb b Parnell 5 8 4 1 0 125.00
1.3 89.4 mph, out goes middle stump! Length ball nips back and beats Lumb's attempted off drive, he was playing with the bat a long way away from the pads, didn't get his foot out to the ball and the quick, off stump ball seamed in and smashed down middle pole 20/1
View dismissal LJ Wright c Amla b Botha 6 15 10 0 0 60.00
4.5 short run, just the one step, slugged high, high in the air and Amla takes it well at point. Good catch that coming across from short third man as Wright tried to go big over the top and skied it off an outside edge 43/2
View dismissal EJG Morgan c Ontong b Botha 5 14 9 0 0 55.55
8.2 down the wicket, smashed straight up in the air and caught by long off coming in 20 yards off the rope, just didn't get it Morgan and pumped it high into the sky and the catch was well held 64/3
JC Buttler not out 32 16 10 2 3 320.00

10.4 another middle stump goes flying gets this absolutely bang on does Morkel and Bairstow tried to angle to third man again but missed the fast yorker perfectly on target, there's the Morkel we know and love 116/5

View dismissal RE Levi b Bresnan 1 5 4 0 0 25.00
1.3 72.6 mph, full and straight and bowled him! Levi tried an ungainly heave across the line as Bresnan sent down an offcutter, not quite yorker length but it dips under the stroke and through to rattle the stumps 9/1
View dismissal HM Amla c Bairstow b Swann 36 33 27 6 0 133.33
6.6 hoicked into the deep and England have the key wicket of Amla! Swann slid this towards leg stump as Amla stepped away, tried to give it some tap but could only pick out the man at deep midwicket with a flat pull shot 53/4
View dismissal F du Plessis c Morgan b Briggs 8 15 6 1 0 133.33
3.6 tossed up, works across the line ... and gone, looped to mid-off! The ball ballooned off a leading edge, completely the opposite direction to where du Plessis intended and Briggs has his first T20I wicket 34/2
View dismissal AB de Villiers*† c Bairstow b Swann 2 3 3 0 0 66.66
6.1 full and outside off stump, slogged into the deep and gone! De Villiers got under the slog-sweep but it wasn't off the middle, trying to drag it to deep midwicket and Bairstow took a good running catch 51/3
JA Morkel not out 17 24 14 0 1 121.42
View dismissal JL Ontong c Morgan b Bresnan 10 9 7 0 1 142.85
9.2 72.0 mph, full toss, skewed to point and Ontong has to go! The batsman wasn't happy about the height but it was probably just below the waist, it seemed to surprise Ontong, who went for the old heave ho only to top edge to the man on the edge of the circle 69/5
