    13.1 SA's fielding has been really good today. Another good piece of fielding. Morris starts his new spell with a short delivery on middle. Brownlie pays the price for a bit of over-exuberance thinking he can clear the boundary even with bad timing. He hits it decently but picks out Behardien at deep square leg, who got across to his left and held a good catch 69/2
    3.6 full and straight from Morris. Latham falls over his flick and is hit on the pad. AB calls for a review, late, very late. Wasn't that more than 15 seconds? Nonetheless, the third umpire is called on to adjudicate. First impression is that it is a good review irrespective of the result. That's very close! All reds on HawkEye and Latham has to go. Pitched in line, check. Some swing subsequently, inswing. Takes the ball past Latham's inside edge, and hit him in front of middle and leg - the second red. Generally, if the first two are good, the third is good too, as is the case here. Good review from SA. 19/1
    20.5 and now he's gone. Just a hint of turn from Shamsi, and it's the perfect amount to induce uncertainty in Williamson's game. He originally shapes to cut, seeing the length short, but it pitches, moves off the pitch, does so seriously slowly as well, and ruins the batsman's timing. Inside edge onto the stumps 108/5
    13.6 chipped back to Morris! It hasn't been the easiest surfaces to drive on the up. Full delivery on off, Taylor drives - the length was there to hit it - but he just hits the ball back to Morris, who holds on with both hands. Very good catch 72/3
    15.6 the plan has worked! But that is not good batting from Broom. A short delivery on middle, it's well-directed. Broom is hustled for pace as he tries to pull over the fielder at square leg. He's hurried for pace and goes through with the stroke. All he succeeds at doing is finding the fielder who takes a simple catch 82/4
    30.1 that's rather tame. No one even appeals because everyone knows its out. Neesham is cramped as he goes for a pull, and he's into his shot too early as well. Gets only a glove on it and the ball arcs over straight into de Kock's gloves. Rabada's like, 'Yeah, I do that all the time, man. No big' 156/7
    26.4 bouncer, hook, appeal for caught behind! The on-field decision from umpire Joel Wilson is not-out but South Africa go for a review. Over to you, Paul Reiffel. Inconclusive evidence on HotSpot but there's a massive spike on Snicko as the ball goes past the bat and Santner has to walk back. This short ball was too quick, it climbed too high, Santner was also looking to drag it from outside off. Basically a list of 'oh nos' fior a batsman 136/6

    21.3 taken at short midwicket, Boult does it for his team yet again! This is the slower short ball and de Kock looks to muscle it the only close-in fielder on the leg side. The lack of pace does just enough to spoil his timing and Taylor moves quickly to his right, reaches out with both hands and comes up with a sharp catch 125/3
    15.2 pops it back to the bowler, Williamson has gambled and he has won. He came into the attack looking for a bit of luck and he creates it by bowling wicket to wicket. Amla tries to manufacture a shot, coming down the track and flicking it, looking for wide mid-on. Mistimes it, to his great detriment and New Zealand's great joy 88/1
    20.1 pins him in front. This is a beautifully tossed up legbreak, pitching on middle, dipping under the cross-bat shot as du Plessis sweeps. Is it turning too much? The batsman pins his hopes on that as he goes for a review. The impact is with the front pad first, that'll help Sodhi. No bat there, that'll also help Sodhi. Ball tracking says pitching in line, hitting in line and grazing off stump (umpire's call) 117/2

    22.1 utterly deceives him! Oh this is fantastic bowling. Full and angled into the leg stump from around the wicket with the sole purpose of making Duminy flick and close the face of the bat a little early. The slower ball does that job beautifully, takes the leading edge and ends up back in Southee's own hands 126/4
    22.2 he's on a hat-trick! Hamilton roars in delight. This is top-class bowling on a pitch affording so much to them. The offcutter pitches on a good length just outside off, Behardien moves forward tentatively to defend, leaving a slight gap between bat and pad and half a second later his stumps are in disarray. That's a 120 kph R Ashwin offbreak 126/5
    26.4 that's high, it's not long, it's another chance for New Zealand and Boult takes the catch running in at long-off. Lovely bowling from Santner. He sensed Morris was going to go and slows it down. The batsman looks to hit against the turn, looking for long-on, the leading edge is taken as the ball dips and turns just enough. Good catch completes a good play 156/6
