    0.5 that is a very sharp take from the keeper down the leg side, given not out, and South Africa review, no problems with Morkel's front foot, this is a proper lifter, has bounced sharply and thudded into Warner's glove, the umpires are pretty sure as they check HotSpot, and Warner is almost past the boundary by the time the umpire raises his finger 1/1
    4.3 he's gone this time, and the bowling change working, it is the taller Morkel who is positioned at mid on, Finch drives this angled length delivery on the up, and Morkel stretches his hands over his head to take it, Steyn pumps his fist and lets out a roar 14/2
    10.2 well, well, the part-timer has taken out Shane Watson, and he is not reviewing, Behardien angles it in on a length, it moves in late a bit too, Watson's bat has to come around that big front foot, it cannot do so quickly enough, and he is given straight away, tracker says that is hitting middle and leg near the top 27/3
    11.3 that is probably not the best stroke to play at this stage, Morkel bangs it in short of a length, Smith tries to force a pull, and Tahir takes the steepling top edge after moving to his left from mid on, mid off was around too, but Tahir hung on in the end, wasn't really the length for the pull 34/4
    25.3 Philander strikes immediately on comeback, and that is a fine catch by Faf, another one falls to the pull, Bailey wasn't on top of the stroke as he hit it off the front foot low to Faf at mid on, and he went down to pouch it 92/5
    41.4 it is hard to clear Morne Morkel wherever he is, he is at short fine leg, this is a slower one into the pad, and Marsh has flicked it for Morkel to take it over his head 154/10
    34.2 Keeper and bowler are convinced about the caught behind, umpire isnt, de Kock is pushing for the review immediately, and South Africa are doing that, Wade on the hop to a short of a length ball into the ribcage, it has brushed his shirt, third umpire says that is close to the glove, and wants to look at HotSpot, there is a faint remark on the bottom of the glove, they move on to Snicko, umpire wants to look at front angle again now, says he is happy with that shot, wants to go back to HotSpot now, says there is a mark, and goes back to the onfield umpire to tell him about the HotSpot mark, and asks him to change the decision to out 125/6
    34.4 it is coming apart for Australia, as Morkel removes Maxwell for a duck, he was on his toes trying to run this short of a length ball towards third man, ends up playing on, again, you have to say that is not a good choice of stroke off your second ball 125/7
    36.1 five for Morkel, and he jumps in celebration, Johnson stuck on the crease to one that leaves him with the angle close to off, and nicks it through to the keeper 129/8
    39.2 nine down, Faf in business at mid on again, a length ball around middle and off, Coulter-Nile whips it for a tumbling Faf to take his second catch, not easy to pull off these shots with the pace and bounce in the pitch 138/9

    1.6 first one down, Watson the man at first slip who jumps high to catch this thick edge of a cut, was short and wide from Hazlewood, replays show a fly was bothering de Kock, and had settled close to his left eye as he lined up to play that cut 6/1
    6.5 they have the big one, Amla arched back and tried to upper cut this bouncer over the cordon, only managed an edge through to the keeper 21/2
    19.2 Hazlewood has struck, this is a steep bouncer, Faf wants to hook, but he has only managed a thin edge through to Wade 113/4
    13.3 Maxwell has taken a wicket in his first over, Rossouw has gone hard at a tossed up, full and wide ball, and the thick edge has flown to Smith at slip 64/3
    25.6 this game is not done yet, AB is gone now, AB chipped out and tried to drive, only to thick edge it through to the keeper, Hazlewood has his fourth 141/6
    19.3 he's lasted one ball, Hazlewood has two in two, not as short as the one that got Faf, but a lifter outside off nevertheless, Behardien hops and awkwardly fends it, straight to gully 113/5
