    4.2 full, swings into the pads and out lbw! Lovely delivery, classic left-armer's dismissal. Nice full length and the inswing did for the batsman who almost fell over. Would have cannoned middle and leg 30/1
    5.1 full just outside off, tried to run it down to third man but gets an edge and taken at slip! Straightforward catch well taken by Chris Gayle and West Indies bag another. Again, the batsman perhaps beaten for pace and got a healthy edge straight to slip 33/2
    9.5 full toss on the stumps, tried to be flicked leg side but gets a big leading edge that's taken by mid-on! A real bonus wicket, poor ball really but du Plessis totally miscued it and it presented a simple chance for Sammy 79/3

    16.2 got him, full length outside off, Miller tries to scoop it over extra cover but the bat turns in his hands and he picks out the man standing on the boundary. Bit of a soft dismissal when you know what Miller can do to that sort of ball 127/4

    6.1 full, Smith goes for a reverse paddle sweep, misses and is given out lbw! South Africa desperately needed that. Went for something extravagant first ball, made a mistake and was caught in front of off stump. But it looks as if Smith did glove it onto his pad 78/1
    10.5 well outside off, Gayle tries to reverse sweep it and gets a little glove to the keeper! Tahir charges off in celebration and a fabulous innings comes to an end. Cute isn't Gayle's game, he tried to really take the micky out of Tahir and got a little glove on the reverse sweep that was well held by the keeper in the fingertips 114/2
    16.4 down the wicket, playing with bat and pad together and it comes off the pad via the bat and loops to cover point. Can't say as I've seen a bat-pad catch to a fielder that far out before. Tried to kick it away but the ball ran off the outside of the pad and then the splice of the bat and looped into the infield. Tahir celebrates like he's won the world cup 154/4
    15.1 trying to work a full ball leg side gets a leading edge that's taken by midwicket. Trying to play a little too square really and it chipped up straight to the fielder who took the simplest of catches 147/3

    17.6 short ball pulled high into the sky, long leg comes under it and takes the catch. Solid take because that went a long way up, misjudgement from the batsman, slightly beaten for pace, top edge that went so high up and very well held 161/5
    19.1 short ball, hooked at, big top edge straight to long leg. Another solid catch by Abbott and again the batsman a little beaten for pace and top-edging a big attempted hook, it flew straight to the fielder 164/6
