de Lange to Guptill, 1 run, full on the pads and clipped away again, that was 152kph!

4.3

de Lange to Nicol, OUT, brilliant work there by the South African skipper, he missed the pull, hit the pad and rolled behind the stumps, Guptill races through but Nicol is slow to respond and de Villiers fires a brilliant throw which hits the stumps bullseye at the bowler's end to catch Nicol well short even with a desperate dive

RJ Nicol run out 23 (18m 17b 3x4 1x6) SR: 135.29

4.4

de Lange to Guptill, FOUR, this is short down leg and Guptill only needs to get bat on it to send it to the fine leg fence, and he duly obliges

4.5

de Lange to Guptill, 2 runs, again on leg, this time full and Guptill tucks him backward of square

4.6

de Lange to BB McCullum, 1 run, again drives a full ball on middle and leg to long-on

de Lange to Guptill, 1 wide, slips another one down leg, too many wides from South Africa so far, past the flick and more gifts for the home side

11.5

de Lange to Guptill, OUT, South Africa get Guptill for less than fifty, it was short on off and he went for the hook over the fence to bring up his half-century but he top-edged it down to deep backward square where Albie Morkel was safely underneath it, a big wicket for the visitors who desperately needed a breakthrough
