    10.3 caught off a short-arm jab! Nortje pulled his length back a little, Avishka was rushed into a pull, and the ball is spliced straight to short midwicket 51/3
    2.1 caught by Shamsi at mid on! Steyn pulled his length back and despite the slow track, Tharanga found himself in an awkward position as he tried to pull, splicing the ball straight up. It wasn't really short enough for the shot. Shamsi settled himself under the high chance, and Steyn has taken seven balls to break through on his return to the one-day set-up 13/1
    3.4 patience brings a wicket! Ngidi just continued to plug away on or around off stump, and Oshada flashes outside off to place an edge in Reeza's hands at first slip. It was accuracy and a hint of extra bounce that did him in 19/2
    17.4 taken at fine leg! Back of a length on middle, and cramping Mendis for space. Tries to pull, but the top edge goes right into the air. Comfortably taken near the boundary 71/6
    10.4 and he's gone first ball! Nortje gets a delivery to burst off a length down the leg side, the ball kissing the gloves as Primayal tries to glance and de Kock diving to catch it. Primayal's out to his first ball in international cricket, and Nortje's on a hat-trick 51/4
    16.6 that's his third! Back of a length on off, and he shapes up to cut. Ball bounces just a bit extra, and he's top-edged this to the keeper 69/5
    31.4 and this one is caught! De Silva is livid with himself. It was a rank long hop from Duminy, and he might have hit it anywhere, but lifts it straight down to Nortje at deep backward square. Soft 123/8
    24.6 caught-and-bowled! Full on off, and turning away from the batsman. Tries to nudge towards cover, but a leading edge takes it back to Shamsi. He dives forward and takes a superb catch that was dying on him 97/7
    39.2 caught at long off! He lived by the sword, and died by it. Udana looks to take Phehlukwayo on again, lifting an aerial drive at a slower ball down the ground. He hits it well, but not well enough to beat du Plessis down at the boundary, who makes no mistake this time
    189/10
    33.4 direct hit! Malinga chipped the ball uppishly and just to the right of Reeza at midwicket. Reeza attacks the ball and fires in a smart throw at the non-striker's end where, shockingly, Malinga hasn't bothered to ground his bat despite being over the line. That is a disappointing way to go. Perhaps he assumed the throw was going to the keeper's end? Whatever the case, thoughtless stuff from Malinga. And excellent awareness from Reeza 131/9

    20.4 straight to mid on! A tame end for such a solid innings. Full on off, and he tries to drag this between midwicket and mid-on, but plays it too straight 110/3
    4.6 edged, and this time it's held! Dhananjaya flighted this one up outside off at just 80km/h and Reeza sweeps under it, an edge coming off the toe-end and looping to Thisara at slip, who manages to hold on this time 21/1
    15.2 smart catch! And Markram isn't happy. Length ball on middle, and he tries to chip to the leg side. Leading edge skies the ball, and the fielder at midwicket slides across the ground to complete the dismissal near square leg 77/2
    26.1 chipped straight to short midwicket! Du Plessis falls against the run of play, dancing down the track and whipping into the leg side - but in the air and straight into the lap of the Priyamal in that position 144/4
