14.1

Jadeja to Bosman, SIX, Boss Man goes big again, steps out and lofts him over long-off, and there is a fielder there, but he is just a spectator here

44.6

Sreesanth to de Villiers, SIX, full and wide, and this time AB tries the percentage shot as opposed to going into the on side. And he connects so well that he clears the sweeper-cover, lovely timing on this one

South Africa 287/2   AB de Villiers 59* (42b 6x4 1x6)   S Sreesanth 7-0-56-0
