    15.4 Cloete falls! De Lange slings down a short one and he swivels to pull the ball high into the leg side. Amla is the fielder out at midwicket, and he makes no mistake. 111/5
    4.2 got him! Bokako strikes, and Durban Heat draw first blood. De Bruyn hadn't looked too comfortable out there, and he is rooted to the crease as he flaps a little aimlessly at a rising length delivery outside off. I'm not sure where he was trying to hit it, but the ball has rushed on to him and popped up in the air to be easily caught at point 27/1
    7.1 and strikes first ball! Morkel just lobbed down a length delivery outside off, and de Zorzi flashed at it. A thin edge went straight through to the wicketkeeper van Wyk, and Durban Heat have another. Is it AB time now? 46/2
    8.5 De Villiers has fallen! He literally fell over as he turned round into an expansive switch hit and the ball rushed on to him, striking him on the thigh. Maharaj appeals, the umpire decides that's adjacent, and Durban Heat have picked up the Big Wicket. 63/3
    14.2 cut in the air, but he's caught in the deep! Raza liked the look of Abbott's somewhat gentler pace, and he cut the ball right out of the middle. De Lange was positioned at deep point, however, and he holds a simple catch. So, Abbott has a wicket and de Lange wins the battle, though not as we might have expected 102/4
    16.2 leading edge, and it's caught at third man! Frylinck set himself at the crease and swung hard at a length delivery, aiming for the leg side. But the ball ballooned off the edge, and once again it's de Lange in the deep who holds the catch 114/6
    18.1 and he's struck! Kleinveldt sliced right across a full, wide ball, and succeeded only in presenting the deep cover fielder with a sliding chance 134/7
    18.2 two in two, he's on a hat-trick! Williams backed away as Abbott slung one down short. The ball took another top edge, and swirled up and over Bokako at short third man. He made excellent ground, running back, to get to it, and held onto a tumbling chance. Best of all, he offers up a two-step celebratory dance at the dismissal 134/8

    19 crunched with a little more authority through the covers. There was probably a quick two available, but Birch didn't want to risk the second even if Mendis did. Mendis turns, late, and is run out off the last ball 139/8

    10.4 thick edge through to the keeper and Amla's gone! Looked to crash this on the up but this was far from being a half-volley. A clever change in pace, this was a cutter that stopped on him. Amla for some reason held back at the last moment, it looked like, and the indecision may have cost him. 70/3
    4.3 goes for a wild slog across the line, but ends up getting the thinnest of edges through to the keeper. So straightforward that no one appealed, so the batsman stood his ground. Then the bowler politely looked back to surprise the umpire, who eventually sent the batsman on his bike by raising the finger. 34/1
    9.5 slices this to long-off. Oh, dear. Deceived in flight and turn, looked to hit over long-on. Excellent catch, was swirling high for a while but he moved to his left and settled under it nicely to take it. 69/2
    12.4 as plumb as it can get! Miller attempts a sweep to a full ball, misses and this would've crashed into middle. low-arm slingy legbreak that was from Mendis, a kind of delivery Kedar Jadhav would've endorsed. 83/4
    15.3 has picked out fine leg via the top-edged pull. Zondo's played a good hand. That said, this is also an excellent catch be cause the fielder running in was on the move. Mendis didn't allow that to hamper him. 123/5
    15.5 through with the pull, played too early and the off bail goes for a walk. But is this a little too late for Spartans? 127/6
