    10.6 a lollipop to backward square leg! The full toss surprised Smuts, who seemed to have decided on the destiny of that shot before the ball reached him, and Plunkett backpedals to pounce a simple top-edge 96/3
    3.2 wicket second ball! Back of a length again, an ambitious pull, a bottom edge into the timbers, and Curran is off and running, literally! Arms outstretched, he believes he can fly, and he jolly well can! 25/1
    7.4 slower ball bouncer, a terribly muffed pull from Mohsele who was utterly braced for an exocet, and completely suckered by the powder-puff pace. The ball barely carries through to Buttler, and that's the end of an intermittently violent and timorous innings 57/2
    14.3 oh well ... de Villiers is gutted, he thought he was cutting loose, but this one soared high into the sky, a mistimed slog from a full length ball, and Morgan steadies himself in the covers to pouch a vital catch 127/5
    13.2 slower ball once again from Plunkett, and a thin edge to the keeper! He's used that ball so cannily today, and Miller is livid not to have picked it. A big ambitious wipe of a cut shot and Buttler does the rest 113/4
    19.5 gone, that's plumb! Ugly heave across the line from Behardien, the ball arrowing in on middle and leg, Jordan picks up a wicket and South Africa's finish continues to fizzle 170/8
    18.2 taken this time, does him with the slower ball! Curran's undercut is bobbing in the evening breeze again, it was nicely bowled, a back-of-the-hand slower ball and Morris top-edged an agricultural swipe towards mid-on, Roy holding a smart low catch running in 157/6
    18.5 timber! Bowled him with the yorker... Another for Curran, who's off once more on a celebratory dash. Too hot for Phehlukwayo, who may have been hoping for a sighter first ball but in the event couldn't get his bat down in time as the ball thudded into off stump 164/7

    15.1 shortish outside off, dabbed down towards backward point... Livingstone declines the single and Roy is struck on the boot as he races back to his crease. SA immediately appeal for obstructing the wicket and they two standing umpires decide to send it upstairs to their colleague in the TV booth. He did turn and run across the pitch, he was looking at the thrower initially but then had turned his back by the time it hit him... Decision time for Tim Robinson: and he's given him out! Roy's not happy but the third umpire decided he deliberately ran in the path of the ball and is sent on his way for 67 133/3
    1.6 short outside off, top-edged as Billings tries to whip across the line - and taken! He tried to force that, hitting to the leg side but Morris' pace and line was enough to send the ball billowing up towards mid-off, where Miller took it well running across 15/1
    13.4 gottim, plinked to mid-on! Full and tailing in from Morris, YJB is a bit cramped and the bat turned in his hands as he attempted to hit down the ground, ends up chipping a simple catch to the edge of the ring 125/2
    19.4 full toss, Livingstone scoops without making a proper connection... and then runs himself out by charging back to the striker's end looking for a second that his partner wasn't even beginning to consider - Dawson had his back to Livingstone and hadn't moved! A strange ending to a strange innings on debut from Livingstone 167/6
    17.4 bowled him, nails the yorker! Superb from Phehlukwayo, caught Buttler in two minds, trying to anticipate what was coming and done by a stump-detonator 153/4
    18.5 got him, chips a full toss to mid-on this time! De Villiers gestures to say he didn't pick it up until the last moment... but he held the catch and Paterson has his maiden international wicket at a crucial moment in the game! 162/5
