    31.4 Nethula has his man, finally, excellent piece of bowling this time, bowled it much closer to the off stump this time and got the desired amount of turn, a fair amount of rip in that ball, Amla got forward and could not prevent himself from trying to open the face, got a thin edge and McCullum made no mistake, more relief for Nethula 192/4
    2.5 short of a good length outside off, appeared to keep just a little low, Kallis pushed at it away from his body, there was a noise, an inside edge and McCullum took it inches from the ground, Aleem Dar at the bowler's end couldn't get a clear view and called for the third umpire's assistance, replays show the catch was clean and that Kallis has to go 11/1
    11.3 wow, absolutely spectacular bit of cricket here, another bouncer from Ellis, a disdainful pull from du Plessis, seemed headed for six, except Guptill was in the way at deep square leg, he was less than a yard in from the rope, took the catch, realised he was going over, so he nonchalantly lobbed the ball up, went over the rope, balanced himself, got back and collected the ball again, du Plessis is gone, I think the highlight of that was how cool Guptill was, no panic whatsoever, and made it look like he was completing a routine bit of fielding 80/2
    25.6 Nethula's had a catch dropped off his bowling but he's not going to spill one, a googly that and Duminy failed to pick it, closed the face on it, expecting it to turn in and got a leading edge as it went the other way, it landed safely into the palms of an expectant Nethula, who'll be mightily relieved 167/3
