    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
