    3.1 caught! tries to hoick it over midwicket, but the ball hits the inside half of the bat and goes tamely straight to square leg. Sorry Shaun 13/1
    11.3 is that the catch of the century!! Davids made room and plays it in the air over cover. That looked like it was going for a boundary, till Neesham runs backward from mid-off and takes this diving full-length towards the boundary. He lands and skids a couple of metres towards the ropes, but stops himself in time. Neesham made it looked so easy...more than half of the 95% of the world would have not counted that as a chance 81/2
    18.3 caught at cover! tries to flick it towards square leg and gets a leading edge that goes as high as the towers. The fielder at cover makes no mistake and Bracewell is on a hat-trick. Faf's amazing innings comes to an end. 160/4
    18.2 length ball outside off and Miller again times it sweetly but finds the fielder at the boundary. The fielder didn't have to move an inch. A little cameo comes to an end 160/3
