    6 middle stump gone! Length ball on off, and he walks down the ground to punch. Played down the wrong line, and his middle stump goes cartwheeling. Frylinck's 100th T20 wicket in his 100th T20 match 50/2
    1.3 full and straight on middle, and the ball's swinging into Malan's pads. He tries to whip, but misses, and he's been caught in front of the stumps! Loud appeal from Birch, and Dawid has to go. 13/1

    9 the googly gets the wicket! Flighted on middle, and turning into the batsman as he uses his feet. Looks to slog towards the leg side, but the ball beats him in the flight and then clips the top of leg stump 64/3

    18.4 and the change of angle does the trick. Has to clear his front leg to hit this low, straight full-toss down the ground, and he doesn't quite manage the power he desires, ends up hitting it straight to long-on 164/4

    5.2 full outside leg, and lifted towards the leg side! But mid on runs to his left, and slides across the ground to take a smart catch! What a laboured innings this was. Slightly painful to watch as well. Cloete's agony ends 27/2
    2.1 top-edged to square leg! That's the wicket they were looking for. Full on off stump, and he goes across the line to sweep over the leg side. But it finds the bat's toe end and Linde makes no mistake 5/1

    10.2 dropped, but no, he takes it on the followthrough! Full on off, and Elgar tries to flat-bat this over the bowler's head. Linde jumps up, gets his fingertips on the ball, and as it comes back on Earth.... Linde dives forward and takes a one-handed stunner! 70/3
    14.3 is that six... no, that's out! Back of a length on middle, and AB rocks back to pull. It's a long boundary there, and the ball seems to be going over the boundary... but Nortje stays on the boundary line, takes a catch, pops it in the air, comes forward again to complete the catch 116/4

    14.4 middle stump gone! Back-to-back wickets for the young lad. Full and straight from the iceman. Rossouw tries to drill a straight drive, but the ball zips right into his stumps. Spartans in big, big trouble now 116/5
    15.4 yorker! Too full on middle, and Frylinck looks to clear his legs for the big shot. The ball skids in, and the stumps light up! They're falling in a heap now 120/6
    18 von Berg's agony comes to an end! Lazy running, that's all it was. Full on middle, and he swings across the line to square leg. He's jogging to the other end, but the fielder at point throws the ball to the bowler, after which he flicks the cherry onto the non-striker's stumps 126/7
    16.3 the keeper runs him out! Length ball on middle, and he flat-bats a pull. But the ball hits the pitch and rolls into the keeper's gloves. The batsmen were trying to steal the single, but Verreynne's throw sends Kleinveldt packing 124/7
    18.5 full just outside off stump, and he clears his front leg to go over long on. But Mendis has toe-ended this shot, and deep midwicket runs across the boundary to comfortably take the catch 128/9

    19.3 all out! And what a smart way to finish the game. Full on middle, and the straight drive has been taken by the bowler! Blitz win by 49 runs! 131/10
