    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
