    14.6 Fourth time lucky Rubel! Hits him almost full on his toes, just on or outside leg, and he can't get this one away. Tried to sweep, but can't connect. Rubel appeals and the umpire raises his finger after a really long time. QDK is furious at the decision, but does not review. Did he forget he could've gone up? He screams into his helmet before walking off. 133/4
    1.6 bowls him! Amla perishes as a result of his making too much room. He's standing on leg stump. Then he clears the front leg to try and open up the off side. But a good length ball pitches on off stump and takes it by skidding through. 18/1
    9.6 taken at long-off! Long boundaries comes in handy and AB falls one short of fifty! Beautiful bowling from Mehidy. He keeps it flat, targets the stumps, does his job to cramp the batsman. AB backs away, and in doing so, his weight shifts on the back foot and he isn't able to get the flow into the shot that will bring it the power needed to clear the boundary 97/2
    12.5 Kayes recovers very well! It's all happening. Full outside off and Duminy hits hard and well. It's flat over the bowler's head, but long off races to his left and jumps to take the catch. Can't hold on to it on his first attempt, but recovers well to hold on during his second attempt. It's all happening. 122/3

    3.5 he sends a full toss down the throat of deep square leg! The ball was there to be tossed into the junk pile outside the boundary. Especially considering there can be only two fielders out there now. And Kayes picks out one of them with a flick shot 43/1
    9.1 full and targeting middle, and it pins the advancing Sarkar on the pads while playing a flick across the line. Out comes a huge lbw appeal, but the umpire reckons its not out. South Africa discuss and they go up for the review. The question is about impact - is it in line - and whether the batsman is too far down the track. And DRS gives three reds! Umpire Holdstock has to reverse his decision and the local fans celebrate 92/3
    6.6 he's skied it, it's going to be a tough catch, and AB's the man running back from mid-off and he takes it without any fuss whatsoever. Frylinck has his maiden T20I wicket, and he's worked it out with a slower ball. It's in line with the stumps and Shakib, eager to keep the boundaries going, lifts it over the off side. It was a good plan, considering the off side fence was less protected. But he can't get enough power in the shot and AB races across the turn, tracking the ball all the way, and snaffling it so very easily 64/2
    10.4 Shouts of catch it, and taken by AB! Pitched up full on middle and the batsman can't resist the slog. Goes down on one knee but can't get the elevation. South Africa kept their best fielder at that spot, and the dividends have been rich 98/4
    13.5 back of the hand this time, it's very short and no pace on that delivery. Sabbir is through his shot too early, and his bat turns upwards while trying to slog over extra. He manages to slice it, and mid off has no trouble swallowing that 124/6
    11.2 In the air! And another one gone. Back of a length this time, and Mahmudullah looks to slog over the leg side. The bat turns, and takes the leading edge. Amla, near point, has to get under the ball, and manages to take the catch while running backwards. Settled himself right in time before tumbling 101/5

    16.2 The leg stump is off! Tries to shuffle towards the off side to paddle the ball fine behind square, but can't get bat to ball and the delivery crashes onto the third pole. Went too far across, exposing all three wickets. 'You miss, I hit' stuff from Paterson 147/7
    16.3 a beautiful yorker on middle stump, smacks him near his toe, a ripper to the new batsman and Paterson appeals. Not out, says the umpire, but they're going for the review. It was a peach first up, replays show it hit him boot-first in front of leg stump. This one's going to crash into middle stump. The umpire reverses his decision. Paterson on a hat-trick 147/8
    17.2 uppishly driven, and sliced over cover...well almost. Miller at cover races back and holds on to the ball that might have been swirling in the air. Makes the catch look easy 150/9
