    3.5 big appeal, has he nicked this to the keeper? Umpire raises the finger, and I think it's for lbw. Yes, it is! Gayle didn't really seem to disappointed with the decision. Looks like this missed the inside edge and hit him straight onto the toe on the way to the keeper. Would've hit off stump. Excellent decision in the end. McLaren's drop doesn't prove too costly. 27/2
    3 plays across the line, this length ball nips away off the seam from middle to take the thin edge through to the keeper. Was looking to biff this over midwicket but played too early. 13/1
    9.2 gets into a tangle trying to pull, was down on one knee looking to sweep initially but this was a length ball that drifted in and bounced to hit him on the thigh pad. The umpire thought about it for a while, so long that the batsmen nearly finished a leg-bye when the finger was raised. 68/3

    10.1 slider that gathers pace and fizzes through after pitching, he was looking to make room and cut but was surprised by how much pace the ball gathered. Smashes into the stumps as he misses. 71/4
    12.1 excellent catch behind the stumps! It's the bounce that has done Christian in as he shapes to cut, cramped for room. Surprised by the bounce, couldn't get on top of the delivery but still managed a big, fat edge. Superbly taken behind the stumps. Rose with the bounce and took it nice and soft. 81/5
    14.2 ugly hoick, missed it altogether and is stumped. The innings is going to pieces here and it has all been brought about due to injudicious shot selection. 89/6
    15.3 this is a great catch, you really won't see much better catches than those. This is sure to be a youtube classic with a million plus hits soon. Talk about the anticipation and the athleticism. This is a short ball, not the kind that deserves a wicket, really. But okay, let's put that aside for now. The batsman's feet are in the air as he cuts but gets more elevation than distance. Phangiso runs in 15 yards or so and then dives full length forward as the ball descends. For a split-second the ball bobbles out, but as his elbows touch the turf, the left hand blocks the camera's view of the ball, so it's hard to really say if the ball touched the turf, but the manner in which he completed the catch suggested it may have been taken cleanly. Was he relieved or disappointed? Soft signal was out and it will stay out. 94/7

    0.5 goes for it and is gone Beuran Hendricks rewarded for keeping Smuts quiet, the captain can't follow his bowling heroics with the bat. Full ball and Smuts swung across the line, only managed a leading edge that went sky high, but settled into mid-on's hands 0/1
    4.1 got him! expansive drive but the ball wasn't in the slot and Marais was looking to get off the mark. Got an inside edge onto the stumps and Hendricks is single-handedly keeping the Stars fighting 27/2
    14.3 holed out to cover brilliant knock by Duckett, falls trying to get the bonus point. Flatter ball, across the batsman, he came down the track but only got a leading edge that looped to cover 109/5

    8.3 he's missed it completely and lost his stumps. dragged it down short, and Kuhn was looking to send it to square leg, but the ball stuck in the pitch and Kuhn had almost completed his shot when it came through, hitting timber 71/3
    11.4 snorter rears up off a length and Jonker is left standing there having fended at it. The ball hits the shoulder of the bat and loops up for an easy catch at point. Much needed wicket for the Stars 96/4
