    5.2 and he strikes next ball. Big smile on Rumman's face after Tamim, looking to make himself room, slogs all around a full, straight one. Wanted to hit it over midwicket and lost all his shape 43/1
    5.6 slower ball, and Rumman breaks into another wide grin. This one's a good-length ball, on middle and off, and Amla, looking to give himself room and hit over extra-cover, can get neither distance nor elevation, offering up a simple, loopy, low catch. Stopped on Amla and hit the high part of his bat 48/2
    13.3 slower ball, full outside off, and he goes for the big one, swings as hard as he can, but ends up getting more height and less distance than he would have liked. Excellent change of pace from Sohail, and it's caught right on the edge of the long-off boundary. They're checking if Rumman's feet touched the boundary cushions, but it's pretty clear he didn't. Gets into a lovely, stable position, lets it drop gently into his hands, but there's the smallest moment of concern where the momentum causes him to take a small backward step. Doesn't touch the cushion, though 108/4
    12.3 tossed up high off stump, Faf goes for the slog-sweep - he has to, given the required rate - and picks out the man at deep midwicket 101/3
    14.5 gone! Down the track again, it's another googly, but this time he's nowhere near the pitch. Swings wildly down the wrong line, and leaves Sarfraz enough time for a theatrical pause before he whips off the bails 123/5
    16.3 slower ball, full outside off, and once again, that's a wicket-taking ball. Hashim Amla fell in similar fashion, and now Elliott scoops a catch to extra-cover 145/6
    19.5 another yorker, close to off stump, dug out towards deep point. They belatedly decide to take a single, and that only results in a run-out at the bowler's end 173/7
