Harris to Dhoni, 1 run, back of a length on offstump, Dhoni stays on the backfoot and twirls it towards third man

Harris to Morkel, 1 run, yorker just outside off, Albie digs it out towards point for a single

Harris to Dhoni, FOUR, he backs away and mows it over midwicket for a boundary, just gets his front foot out of the way and clobbers it

18.5

Harris to Dhoni, 2 runs, low full toss on legstump, whacked down the ground, Albie pushes for the second, the throw is some six feet wide of the stumps, so the batsmen are safe

18.6

Harris to Dhoni, FOUR, whoah, where did that come from, reverse-sweep to a fast bowler, Dhoni doesn't get the placement right, finding short third man, but Shoaib Maqsusi misfeilds to give away three extra runs
