    0.2 a drive, an edge, and Miller holds a simple catch! This must be some sort of record - two balls into his wicketkeeping career, he's got a catch. It was a nice, easy one too, flying through at head height and straight to him. The feet didn't even need to move. And didn't 0/1
    5.4 excellent work on the boundary by Hendricks! Avishka heaved mightily at a length delivery, a slower cutter, and got some serious air on the shot, but Reeza made ground at the boundary and demonstrated superb spatial awareness, holding the catch inches from the rope, lobbing the ball back into play as his momentum carried him over, and then popping back in to hold the catch. Good stuff 42/3
    1.6 chipped to mid on! Kusal drives uppishly, and the ball carries straight to Sipamla in the position for an easy catch - his first in international cricket 7/2
    12.1 stumped! Wonderfully bowled by Tahir, fizzing a googly past the advancing Kamindu, the ball gripping and spinning past him. Behind the stumps, Miller reads it, takes it cleanly, and whips the bails off in a flash. A catch, and now a stumping! Tahir sets off to celebrate with the crowd near midwicket as his team-mates mob Miller 76/5
    11.2 bowled him! Phehlukwayo aims full with a cross-seamed delivery, the ball zipping through Angelo's slog and smashing into the stumps 73/4
    18.1 caught by du Plessis at long off! Phehlukwayo starts with a slower ball at just 110km/h, and Thisara slices under his heave down the ground. Faf takes a few steps in, then stops and tumbles backwards as the ball reaches him, holding the catch cleanly, and Phehlukwayo has his second 113/6
    18.2 bowled him! Dhananjaya walks across a seam-up delivery, bowled at 126km/h, looking to lap it up and over short fine leg. But he goes too far across it with Andile targeting the stumps, and he's bowled. Phehlukwayo is on a hat-trick! 113/7

    6.1 soft dismissal! Length ball on leg, and de Kock goes for a reverse paddle. He gloves the ball, and it's lobbed in the air. Dickwella stays at his spot and takes the easiest of catches behind the stumps 33/2
    3.4 top-edged over square leg! Lands safely beyond the two infielders, but de Kock wants the third run and this could be trouble. Is Reeza short? Looks like it! South Africa get two runs, but Dickwella has run Hendricks out at the batsman's end 21/1
    9.3 thick outside edge to point! And South Africa are in trouble. Full, flighted outside off, and he tries to lift this over cover. But extra turn finds the bat's outside edge, and this has lobbed straight to Dhananjaya 52/3
    16.3 full on off, and he goes for a wild leg-side slog. Gets a leading edge and Udana at third man makes no mistake! 118/4
    16.5 length ball on leg, and worked away with the bat's closed face to deep midwicket. But Miller's too slow to come back, and the fielder at the deep has delivered a flat throw. Dickwella reaches out, collects well, whips the bails off, and the set Miller is gone! An applause for Miller, but he'll be disappointed not finishing the game off 119/5
    19.5 slower ball, full and wide outside off, and he drags a shot to deep midwicket. Duminy wants the second run, but there's no way he'll be able to make it back. Throw from the deep is flat and straight, and Dickwella affects another run out! Duminy gone 133/8
    17.5 is that six, nope! Full just outside off, but Phehlukwayo can't resist himself. Skips down the ground to slog over long off, but this finds the bat's toe end 128/6
    18.6 Malinga, you beauty! The wily ol' fox has a bag of tricks, doesn't he? Slower ball, full on leg, and Rabada goes for a big slog. He misses, ball hits. 130/7
