    2.2 Levi is gone! Tried to repeat the shot but the ball was fractionally closer to middle and he didn't get as much bat on it, Nicol running round from midwicket races around towards deep backward square and takes an outstanding catch low while sliding 20/1
    7.1 and strikes first ball! Amla just lamely pushes at one outside off which nips away a touch and Baz does the rest to give a jubilant Bracewell a superb start to his spell 59/3
    4.5 Nicol takes his second catch to give fellow King's College attendee Southee his first wicket, Albie tried to smear a full ball outside off across the line and mistimed it badly as Nicol ran in from long-on to take it three-quarters of the way to the fence 39/2
    14.1 and clean bowled! AB was in real pain, remains to be seen whether he can keep wickets and skipper the side later on, moved across and tried to slog sweep a ball on leg over the backward square fence, missed and the death rattle began 129/5
    12.6 horrible way for Duminy to depart, AB absolutely creamed a full ball on middle back down the pitch after advancing, Nicol somehow collects and sees Duminy well out backing up too far, Nicol then turns around and whips the bails off with Duminy not even bothering to try and dive back in, to add to the dismissal AB looks to have done some damage to himself 121/4
    14.3 oh goodness me! First things first, Ontong went for a big swing to a ball spinning in from outsude off, hit him on the thigh on leg and he was given out lbw, in the meantime he has a Mark Richardson moment and the bat flies out of his hand like a discus down to fine leg! 130/6
    16.5 that is a stunner! It's Martin Guptill making amends for his rare drop earlier on, it was outside off and Botha butchered a cover drive high above the fielder, who dived and plucked it with his left hand at rapid speed before hanging on 137/7

    5.6 this is short on off and gets big on Nicol as he tries to pull, gets a top edge down to Levi at fine leg who struggles to see it in the floodlights and has to dive forward to take an important catch 65/1
    6.6 massive wicket for South Africa as Guptill holes out to Amla at long-off, it was turning into Guptill from off and he sliced the drive in the air flat without much power to Amla who held the catch well as he tumbled over 73/2
    18.5 and that was a poor shot by Ryder, he walked across the stumps and tried to lap it over his shoulder but ended up scooping it to Morne on the edge of the circle, can South Africa pull off the unthinkable? 158/5
    11.6 just as I say that and make a fool of myself, Brendon McCullum goes for a big swing at a short ball on off and it goes through to AB who juggles before claiming the catch, the finger goes up and McCullum doesn't seem to think he hit that but he has to go 112/3
    15.2 and all of a sudden Kane completely misjudges the short ball on middle, it got way too big on him and he skied it high up to midwicket in close, Albie Morkel, who held on to give his brother the wicket 142/4

    19.3 now they are in full-blown panic mode, moved across way outside off and tried to paddle pull, got a glove on it and it skied up to AB behind the stumps, are the home team going to do what their opposition is usually accused of doing? 160/6
    19.5 South Africa should win this now as Bracewell goes for an almighty slog to leg as the ball is full on off, skied high in the air and settles in the hands of Amla at point and he ends up diving forward to take it 160/7
