52.1

Harris to McDonald, no run, gets well forward to defend to the off side

52.2

Harris to McDonald, no run, edged but not to the hands. It drifts in to beat the forward defensive poke and bobs away off bat and pad to right of Amla at short-leg who couldn't get a hand to it. It wasn't that far from him and there was a inside edge. Amla was slow to react. Where is David Boon, he would have swallowed that
