    12.5 they're going to have to reconsider the ramp! Amla walks across once more, but this time he's pushed it flat and back of a length. Amla is still moving as it arrives at him with all stumps exposed. In the end, he can't get down fast, or stay still to play with a straight bat. Gets hurried on the ramp, takes it on the inside edge outside off and it clips off stump...in fact, it's hit middle, but only the bail on the left has lit up 66/2
    0.3 ...but they won't need anyone out in the field! Goes around the wicket, good length, pushed outside off, de Kock puts in a half-stride and checks his shot as the ball turns sharply and catches the outside edge 1/1
    30.6 chipped straight to midwicket. Length ball, gets stuck in the surface and does not really come on. It was an off-cutter and du Plessis comes forward and tries to turns it away into the leg side. But he is not in the best of positions and he fails to keep it along the ground as he fails to get his head completely down while playing it 140/4

    26.5 Dragged on. The wide outside off channel pays. Duminy opens his blade as he sees this one pitch around a set of stumps outside off and tries to cut it away. But he does not account for the late movement. Cuts back in late after pitching and gets the inside edge as the ball goes into the stumps. 128/3

    31.6 Miller sweeps again but this time he does not keep it along the ground. Gives it too much power and it goes hard and flat to the fielder at deep midwicket. Brownlie snaffles a superb catch. It was coming on to him quickly and dipping on him but he judges the dive to perfection as he gets forward, gets low enough and pouches it smartly 143/5
    36.5 that is dreadful running. Good length on the pads, he's got good bat on his push, it's straight to Taylor at square leg. de Villiers has called for a run that was never on. Pretorious is nowhere close as a gentle throw comes in on the bounce and the bowler flicks the bails off. There was slight hesitation from him, but he trusted his partner and went through 158/6

    45.4 ...but he's certainly tried to clobber this. Comes around the wicket, bowls it full, angled in at the batsman. He wants to slog this way over midwicket, but it catches him on the pads and clatters into middle stump 216/7
    49.6 yorker outside off, jammed into the off side, teases the sweeper cover fielder who puts in a nice throw as AB comes back for the second and finds that his partner wasn't thinking along the same lines. Run out by a long way 279/8

    2.5 another inside edge on the attempted flick, and this time it's tickled through to de Kock down the leg! Was a poor ball, fired down the leg and his nervous innings has come to an end 5/1
    12.2 appeal for lbw, given by umpire Reiffel. Williamson opts to not review it. Wouldn't have helped him as that would have probably hit middle and off. Williamson gets down to sweep but it is not full enough to sweep. Pitching on middle and leg and turning away and gets rapped on the pads 77/2
    42.6 and as soon as the fielder comes in, he has fallen for it. Comes down the track to this full toss and it is dipping. He tries to loft it over mid-on as he sees the fielder coming in but with the ball dipping on him, cannot make good connection. Ends up chipping a straightforward catch to the fielder there 257/3
