    40.2 AB's got the big wicket of Finch! Regular length delivery on the off stump, Finch went for a wild slog on the leg side and missed it completely. The ball crashed in to off and middle stumps 242/3
    19.6 taken at midwicket! It was a length delivery on middle and off, Warner slogged it without much footwork and AB at midwicket had to jump a bit to take the flat catch 118/1
    31.3 he's got Watson again! Behardien pitched it slightly shorter outside off, Watson slogged on the leg side but didn't get enough of it and long on went to his right to take the skier 189/2

    44.3 that's a skier down the ground, it won't go all the way and Faf takes an easy catch! Bailey made room on the off side and lofted it high, didn't get much bat on the fullish delivery 264/4
    47.2 he's played the wrong line and lofted it high for an easy catch to AB at long off! It was angled in a bit towards middle and leg, but he lofted it inside out, very high and AB took it with rather ease 295/5

    38.1 one more, Amla's gone too! He made a bit of room for the straighter ball that was coming in, he missed the line of the ball and slogged to leg, and was clean bowled! 226/5
    18.2 doesn't connect the pull well and a leading edge goes high, caught around short third man! QDK pulled the short delivery from leg but got a top edge which went very high and Marsh had to run back from backward point for the catch 108/1
    26.4 Faf holes out! He came down the track, Marsh pitched it short, and Faf pulled it powerfully but found the fielder in the deep who didn't have to move much for the catch 143/2
    27.6 edged and taken outside off! Rossouw didn't move his feet much for the length delivery outside off, and drove and merely edged it to Wade for an easy catch 148/3
    37.2 that's a loud appeal for lbw, umpire says it's out and AB reviews it! Bowden says there's nothing on Hot Spot, it's hitting him in line and is hitting the stumps too, AB has to go. AB had moved across a long way to the off side to slog the delivery on leg, missed it and was struck just in front of off 224/4
    44.3 gone, one more caught at mid off! He made room for the delivery to clear mid off, lofted it in the air and Finch took an easy catch 256/10
    39.3 inswinging yorker does it, the finger goes up! Miller was struck on the crease as the yorker dipped and swung in, hit him on the front shoe in front of leg stump, was it going down leg? The umpire says it's out and Miller has a few words with the huddle that's forming 231/6
    41.6 pulled, that's high in the air and it's an easy catch for Finch! Philander pulled the short ball, it went high and Finch took a few steps in from midwicket for the catch 238/7
    43.2 taken at mid off, one more falls! Steyn had been targeting the region down the ground, he didn't connect that well and was caught by Marsh at mid off 252/8
