    17.5 third time lucky for the bowler, gets Smith playing forward to a slower ball, Smith checks the shot too late and pushes the ball, in the air, back down the pitch for Chigumbura to hold on to a one handed catch 73/2
    0.4 gets a beauty, angled in, good bounce and leaves Bosman off the pitch, pushes at it from the crease, no foot movement helps the regulation edge to the keeper, great start for Zimbabwe 1/1
    35.1 around the wicket, gets forward, great length, turns away from the bat, Bodi follows, gets the edge and taibu takes, appeals all round but Bodi is already walking, no need for Tiffen to even raise a finger 147/3
    44.1 very wide down the leg, sweeps that wide of long leg, sets off, comes back for the second but is well short in the TV replay 190/5
    37.4 short ball, turns back as Duminy shapes up for an aggressive pull, misses as the ball stays slightly down, into the pad, and the finger is up 155/4
