View dismissal NS Poonia c †Smits b Stelling 0 2 2 0 0 0.00
0.2 Stelling strikes, the ball was almost identical to the first only a little closer to the batsman, it pitched around off stump and moved away from Poonia, forcing him to fend at it, the ball kissed the outside edge and Smits took an easy catch 0/1
View dismissal RM Haq b Reekers 6 10 15 1 0 40.00
3.2 and the stump-to-stump line works! Reekers bowls one dead straight and the ball breaches Haq's defences, he tried to play across the line to that one and heard the sound of timber moments after he missed, van Bunge will be a relieved man 9/2
View dismissal RR Watson c & b de Leede 16 52 37 3 0 43.24
13.4 de Leede takes a blinder! He bowled that full to Watson who absolutely hammered the straight drive back at de Leede at head height, de Leede gets his hands up in time, parries the ball, and takes it on the second attempt, brilliant reflexes 39/5
View dismissal GM Hamilton lbw b Stelling 4 10 13 0 0 30.76
6.2 Stelling has his second, Hamilton moves across to one that pitches on middle and swings towards leg stump, he misses the flick and is hit just below the knee roll, Asoka de Silva says that was going to hit and Hamilton isn't happy, he's got to go though and replays show the ball hitting leg 15/3
View dismissal DR Brown lbw b Stelling 0 2 1 0 0 0.00
6.3 Stelling is on a hat-trick! Stelling pitches that on off and middle and the ball angles into the right-hander, Brown gets half forward and the ball hits him low on the pad in front of middle, easy decision for de Silva to make 15/4
View dismissal NFI McCallum c Stelling b Jonkman 24 68 43 3 1 55.81
22.3 caught at gully! Jonkman bowls it wide outside off stump again and McCallum cuts hard, he doesn't keep it down and hits it straight to Stelling who takes the catch at stomach height 83/7
View dismissal CJO Smith b Jonkman 19 30 23 4 0 82.60
20.4 timber! Jonkman pitches one just outside off stump and nips it back into Smith who thrusts his bat out, the ball takes the inside edge and hits the top of leg stump 77/6
View dismissal CM Wright* st †Smits b Mohammad Kashif 1 12 7 0 0 14.28
23.4 Kashif gets into the act! He bowls one quicker and wider outside off stump, Wright gives him the charge and tries to drive, he isn't anywhere near the pitch of the ball and gets beaten, Smits whips off the bails in a trice 83/8
JAR Blain not out 18 49 28 1 1 64.28
View dismissal GA Rogers c †Smits b Mohammad Kashif 26 27 30 5 0 86.66
31.1 edged and gone! The quicker one lands short and spins in, Rogers stands deep in his crease and tickles at it, and Smits snaps up the thin edge! 117/9
View dismissal PJC Hoffmann c ten Doeschate b van Bunge 7 13 8 1 0 87.50
34.1 It's all over. Scotland have folded up cheaply. A flighted delivery on the middle and off stump line produced a lofted drive but he was beaten in the flight and the dip. Ended up ballooning it towards mid-off and he is a goner. 136/10
