    2.3 edged and caught behind! This was almost a half-volley, across the left-hander, Head's feet were stuck in cement on the crease as threw the hands at a drive and got a thin edge through to de Kock and he gleefully accepts the simple catch. Great start for the great Dale Steyn. 4/1
    5.5 LBW! Finch walks off. No review! This was a good length wide of off, nipped back sharply and hits above the knee roll, and Aleem Dar gives it! He was on his toes on the crease. There is a lot of bounce in this track. Hawkeye had it going over the stumps! How did they not review that! There has been a lot of pace and bounce. That's an error from Australia 8/3
    2.5 edged and what a catch by du Plessis at second slip! Another full ball across the left hander, he launches into a drive, again not a big forward stride, thick edge, flies high to the skipper's left and he jumps and takes a superb catch flying up with two hands above his left shoulder! Great bowling and catching from South Africa. 4/2
    16.2 another one goes! Appeal for caught behind, given not out and South Africa review straightaway. It sounded like a bottom edge. A delivery with some width, Lynn went after it, and there's a clear noise as the ball passes the bat. There's also a spike on Snicko. Lynn is almost off the field...he's basically walked! Umpire says there's conclusive evidence of an edge. Good, low catch by de Kock. He's gone! 36/4
    31.5 another sweep, and he's gone. He couldn't stop himself sweeping and paddling. Was trying to almost scoop this right over the keeper. Takes a little top edge, into the arm, and lobs up the air. De Kock takes a simple catch. Poor game management from Carey? 107/8
    18.1 caught at mid-on! It goes from bad to worse for Australia, although Maxwell is standing his ground to see if it's carried. He came forward into a drive, a bit early on it, couldn't keep the ball down. It's dripping on the way Klaasen. Soft signal was out, and third umpire says he's happy the fingers are under the ball 48/5
    20.6 oh dear! What was that?! Stoinis has just clubbed it to mid-on. A length ball, he tried to drive through the line, didn't even look as though he was trying to keep it down. Simple catch 66/6
    28.3 direct hit from cover! David Miller on target, an underarm flick with his right hand. Cummins is struggling. Was dropped into the off side by Carey, Cummins was slow out of the blocks and he's well short. There has been some wonderful bowling today, but Australia also not helping themselves 89/7
    38.1 Skied pull shot and Klaasen sits under it and takes it easily at mid on! The end for Australia. It was short and wide of off, but he tried to pull over midwicket, got it off the toe end of the bat, it flew very high, Klaasen camped under it and took an easy catch 152/10
    35.6 Given LBW! Starc reviews. This was pushed through flatter, out of the front of the hand and it skids on, he was right back in his crease and struck on the knee roll. Nothing on hot spot. Nothing on snicko. He missed it. Hawkeye has it pitching in line and hitting. Out! Good decision. 140/9

    16.4 A breakthrough! De Kock looking to finish the game quickly, aiming to loft straight down the ground, comes from low down on the bat and goes very high, but without much distance. Mid-off settles underneath it 94/1
    21.6 caught at mid on! A bizarre dismissal. It was a good length, he tried to launch down the ground, it bounced a touch and got him a bit quicker, it hit the splice of the bat and ballooned up to mid on and Lynn waltzed around to take a very easy catch. 122/2
    27.2 chopped on! He is annoyed at this. It was short and wide, he tried to play a cut but it stayed a touch lower and held up, he got an inside edge and dragged it back onto the stumps. Markram was furious 143/3

    29.1 edged at caught at first slip! Well bowled by Stoinis. A good length ball, just outside off, he tries to drive on the up with no footwork, it bounces a little, catches the edge and flies to Finch at first slip who catches it infront of his eyes. Three for Stoinis 151/4
