    4.6 tonks leg stump! This is really good from South Africa. They built the pressure with the dot balls - only three scoring shots in the last 12 balls - and handed the ball to the experienced stump-to-stump guy. He kept hitting a length and now he's hit the stumps too. Masakadza runs down the pitch and heaves across the line. At no point is he in control 33/2
    1.2 knocks the off stump! Simple, straightforward fast bowling - a length ball coming in at off stump. Mire swipes on the front foot to try and get it over midwicket but this skids through from under his angled bat and smashes the stump 7/1
    12.3 middle stump uprooted. Taylor gets down to slog to the wrong length. And there's no room as it comes on quite straight, misses with the shot and the ball smashes top of middle 64/4
    6.2 another one for Frylinck. Muskanda has had no luck outside off. Got one naughty ball after another out there and it's another one that's got the edge now. Or has it? He stands still and stares down the pitch. If there was an edge, it's a really thin one. He was slashing hard at this short of a length ball outside off and it cut away and climbed at him 35/3
    15.2 backs away looking to flick but it's not full enough. And the bowler follows him with the line to cramp him up as the ball takes out leg stump 101/5
    18.1 short of length, angled in, so no room on the pull, drags it very high to wide long-on where Miller settles under it 115/7
    16.4 edged and gone. Swings as he stays stationary at the crease but it's out of his reach and he gets an outside edge off the lower part of the bat, de Kock stretches out full-length one-handed to pouch it 108/6

    3.1 chips it straight back to the bowler! That sits in the pitch after landing short of a length. Rassie is looking to close the face on this but it's through too early. A harmless lob back at Mpofu who collects it cleanly and puts the ball in his pocket 23/1
    6.1 taps it on to the stumps and Mavuta breaks into his celebratory jig. Length ball skids across off stump, he looks to turn it into the leg side, anticipating turn on that, but it's off the inside edge, onto his pad, and into off stump 51/2
    7.2 bowled him! That's tidy bowling from Williams but a poor shot from Faf. Length ball angles in at off and he wants to push through the off side on that angle. The ball lands and spins slightly past the outside edge though, and it takes his off stump. Too much of a gap between bat and pad, not a confident stride either 58/3

    12.2 gets down for a big slog, kind of needless, have to say. The angle is pretty sharp into him and doesn't find the middle. Sends a catch down to deep midwicket. But SA nearly there now 102/4
