Hira to de Villiers, OUT, brilliant by Guptill! It was full outside off and AB absolutely slammed it low to short cover, where Guptill took it cleanly and made a difficult catch look extremely simple. AB asked Guptill whether he caught it and accepted his word, but the umpires went upstairs to check. After numerous replays memorable only for their inconclusiveness, the umpires finally send AB on his way.
