    18.3 oh no. Warner has been sold out. Warner doesn't even look at his partner. He isn't happy but doesn't show it to his partner. Good on Warner. A short delivery on middle and leg, Warner inside-edges his pull to midwicket. He wants one, Renshaw comes down, then calls no. Warner is quick so he is already halfway down. Bavuma returns a simple throw to the keeper. 64/1
    18.5 another massive appeal. No says ump Llong. Faf reviews. . Quick through the air, flat on leg. Khawaja lunges forward and misses the ball completely. The ball strikes Khawaja in front of leg after beating him on the inside edge. Khawaja played for some turn, there was none there. All reds on HawkEye, hitting enough of leg stump. Another wicket. Two in three for SA 64/2
    39.6 and Smith goes. What a beauty from Abbott. Smith shuffles across outside off, looks to work the ball through midwicket but the line is wider than he would have wanted. tries to improvise a defensive stroke but the ball takes the outside edge and is snaffled up by de Kock. 125/3
