    20.2 dragged on, big strike. Too close for the shot, perhaps? Back of a length outside off, looking to angle it into the off side, takes a bottom edge into off stump. A bit of a cutter, too, so credit to Pretorius 96/3
    3.2 big appeal, given LBW!Head reviews. It was a full length, on off, he pushed hard at a drive, it looked to beat the inside edge. Nothing on hot spot or snicko. Hawkeye had it hitting in line and crashing into middle. Australia lose the review. Head was plumb. It just nipped back a touch off the seam. Not much, just enough. 12/1
    11.5 big edge, caught behind! Just as it as looking good for Australia, Marsh goes for a drive on the up, the delivery was back of a length, and gets a thick top edge. Hint of movement off the seam as well 66/2
    26.5 caught behind, and is that a bit of a send-off from Rabada?! What action in this over. Another bouncer, shorter this time, angling over leg stump, Lynn went for the hook and it takes a glove. Perhaps a word from Rabada to Lynn. Good take from de Kock. 133/4
    44.2 caught behind! Well bowled from Rabada. Shorter length, cross seam again, got a bit of extra bounce, he tried to run it to third man, got a thin edge through to de Kock and he takes the easy catch 204/9
    33.2 edged and caught behind! Oh no! Just as he was looking in control, it was wide of off, not quite short enough to cut, he cut with the flashing blade, got a clear edge and de Kock took a simply catch! Maxwell admonishes himself. 166/5
    35.2 caught at midwicket! This is a howling shot! From a length on off, out of nowhere he tried to launch this over mid on, dragged it off the inside half of the bat to midwicket and Hendricks held on to a superb catch above his head! It flew sharply and he clung on with one hand. 170/6
    38.3 Bowled him at 145kph! Just a missile targeting off stump, it was cross seam, Cummins was a week late as it skidded through under the probing bat and crashed into off stump! Simply too quick from Steyn 179/7
    40.5 caught and bowled! Back of a length, he was cramped for room trying to turn this around behind square, closed the face too soon, got a leading edge and it lobbed up in the air straight back to the bowler who gleefully to an easy catch 187/8
    48.3 caught at midwicket! What a bizarre dismissal. It was a short ball at the body, he backed away and it followed him, he played a swat, tennis smash type shot and popped it straight up to midwicket. Easy catch for Miller. 231/10

    4.1 picks out long leg! Starc strikes early, probably not how he planned. It's a length ball shaping into de Kock, he whipped it with his strong wrists, but never tried to keep it down and Zampa judged the catch well. Didn't go in entirely cleanly, but held on. Picked out the one man in the deep, a bit careless really 18/1
    10.1 outside edge, caught behind! Australia are right in this now. In the channel outside off, a rather tentative push by Hendricks and it's a thin nick to Carey. They check for the no-ball, but he's okay 48/3
    9.1 he's been run out coming back for a third! What an error from South Africa. Length delivery, clipped off the pads through midwicket, it was a comfortable two and they pushed for the third. Markram didn't seem to be putting in the hard yards, then brought out the dive but it couldn't save him. Bat may just have been over the line, but it had never been grounded in the process. Something from nothing for Australia. Stoinis was the chaser, terrific take at the stumps by Carey 46/2
    29.2 chopped on! There's the breakthrough! This was back of a length and well wide, du Plessis threw the hands at it from the crease with an angled back, got a thick inside edge and dragged it back onto the stumps! A touch unlucky for the South Africa captain but Australia will take it 142/5
    14.4 short ball, pulled straight to midwicket! A day of loose batting continues and Stoinis does it. Banged in half way down, Klaasen went for the pull and couldn't keep it down. Neat, low catch by Lynn 68/4
    43.3 huge appeal for lbw, given not out and Finch calls for the review! Miller had used his feet so he's a long way down the pitch. But it looked straight. Nothing on Snicko. And it's three reds. Hitting off stump. He's gone, and that could be the match 187/8
    38.2 that's the breakthrough, Hazlewood does it! Another spliced pull, lobs to midwicket. A well-directed short ball, tight to the body, cramped Pretorius for room. Hazlewood is pumped. Game on 174/6
    41.4 through him! Hits the timber. Stoinis does it again. A back of a length delivery, bit of a cutter, a cross-seamer which skids on, Steyn just looking to work into the leg side, takes the toe of the bat into the stumps 184/7
    47.1 cleaned him up with the yorker! That was on the cards. Full, straight, quick. Rabada aims a drive and he's gone 202/9
