    7.4 Pretorius wins an lbw appeal with his fourth ball! Slower, full ball from the seamer, Tamim does not spot the change-up and is struck on the flap of the back pad. Was the impact in line? The tracker might have returned umpire's call on impact 44/1
    28.6 simple catch to de Villiers at extra cover. Or not, based on his reaction. Looks like he lost the ball in the crowd, but it was that soft. Didn't make a difference. A googly from Tahir, good length at off stump. He doesn't pick it and looks to flick again. Leading edge carries at knee height and there's loud roar from Tahir 162/3
    10.5 Liton has been pinned lbw. He chats with Kayes and challenges the on-field out decision. SA's players, however, are quite confident. Very full and slanting in on middle, raps the front pad in line with middle. Liton played all around it and missed the ball. Ultra Edge detects spike but it came from the ball hitting the pad. No inside snick involved. This would clatter into the middle stump. Bangladesh lose a review and Liton 69/2
    33.1 slices it straight to point. Offcutter dug in very short outside off. He steps out and gets a fair distance away from it. Has to reach out in the end with a cut and he can't clear Duminy 184/5
    30.3 edged and brilliantly taken by de Kock. A slider from Tahir, outside off stump. The keeper doesn't seem to have picked it. His first step is towards the leg side. The batsman, on the other hand, seems to know it's going across him. Even then, it's a poor shot with a slip in place - he's looking to run it off the outer half. De Kock gets his hands in the right place and takes the edge. Shakib walks 171/4
    45.1 pops the middle stump. Good length ball, angled in from outside off. No feet, swings across the line and misses comprehensively 239/9
    40.2 'mine mine mine' says Faf at extra cover before taking a simple catch. Tossed up wide outside off. He goes down the track and looks to play the slog sweep. Gets a top edge that doesn't travel too wide 219/6
    43.2 clean bowled. Goes wide of the crease and zips this in from outside off, back of a length. Smashes into the leg stump at about knee height as he looks to whip this off the back foot 234/7
    43.5 plumb in front. He's skiddy, this guy, and very deceptive. Length ball comes back in quickly from outside off. He looks to flick it on angle but is trapped right in front of middle 234/8
    not out
    47.5 that's it. A full, fast one at leg stump and he gets a wicket on a very average bowling day for him. Too much for Rubel 249/10
