    7.4 caught at short midwicket! This is going the same way as the first one! It was a short of length delivery on the body and Rohit goes for his usual front-foot pull and gets it on the middle too, but he is unable to keep it down. Hashim Amla at short midwicket times his jump to perfection to pluck this one out! Excellent reflex catch there. Loppsy is elated 29/3
    2.2 and he is gone, caught at point! another length delivery outside off and Dhawan tends to go for these ones, that's what he does, but he is not able to keep it down and it goes straight to the throat of the backward point fielder 10/1
    3.5 and now Kohli is gone for a duck! Tsotsobe strikes with an angled delivery outside off which was slightly short in length. The batsman tried to steer it down to third man, but it just skims off the face of the bat to the keeper. 16/2
    8.4 short and wide and another wicket! This one was close to the wide marker, but Rahane, unlike two balls ago, chases this one. De Kock takes it and is the first one to appeal, then everyone appeals and the umpire raises the finger 34/4
    22.6 oh that is some awesome catch! David Miller takes a stinger at cover! Raina moved his front leg out and blasted that length delivery towards cover. He timed it well and that was off the middle too. But Miller shows super reactions to bend down and take the low catch. Raina watches in disbelief for a few seconds before trudging off 95/6
    19.5 great catch from QDK! It was just outside off, Dhoni didn't move much and pushed at it and managed a thick outside edge. It was probably going past the keeper and de Kock leapt to his right to take the low catch 74/5
    33.2 AB you beauty! Jadeja gets a length delivery to which he throws his bat, he wanted to hit the sight screen, but this goes high and straight. AB de Villiers, however, lines himself up coming in from long on and leaps in the air to pick this one right on the edge. Wonderful judgment there from the SA captain 145/8
    30.5 and it's over for Ashwin! Steyn gets the wicket with a wide delivery! It was a short ball wide outside off and the batsman wanted to pull it from there, he gets a faint tickle on this one. Similar to the way Rahane got out 133/7
    35.1 and more sounds of leather on timber! The series has been wrapped with a slower ball that hits the off stump as the batsman looks to swing it away 146/10
    34.4 not this time! Steyn takes the middle stump out of the ground! This was full, fast and straight. Umesh tried to whip it across the line, but was too slow 146/9
