    14.5 bowled off the inside edge! Marais was aiming for the grandstand with this shot, but the ball takes the inside half of his bat and cannons into the stumps 114/5
    4.3 breakthrough! Smuts' hit-and-miss innings comes to a close. Shorter from Bosch, and Smuts' pull has been top edged to deep midwicket. Sharp catch taken by the boundary rider 40/1
    7.5 full on leg, and the googly gets into his body. Tries to sweep, and misses. The ball hits his body, rolls towards the keeper, and the keeper has whipped the bails off! Is Duckett out stumped? And yes he is! Duckett had no idea where the delivery had gone, and he was trying to pinch a single. But the ball rolled into Cloete's gloves. Weird, weird dismissal 60/2
    8.4 bye bye Lubbe! Frylinck from round the wicket, and Lubbe exposes all three stumps to try and whip it over deep midwicket. But it's come off the bat's toe end, and it's gone straight down the fielder's throat 64/3
    9.5 skidding into middle stump! This is an arm ball, landing on leg and going into his body. Tries to nudge towards the leg side, but the ball hits his pad and then ricochets into the stumps! Jeevan on a roll with his variations 72/4
    15.4 bowled him! Second set himself to sweep, fetching the ball from well outside off stump, but it took the inside edge of his shot and bounced straight into the stumps 118/6
    19.3 edged, and gone! Sipamla pulled his length back just a touch and Morris eyed up the midwicket boundary, but he possibly just tried to hit it a little too hard, and can only get a thin edge on the ball 139/8
    15.5 and he's gone first ball! Mendis looped down a wrong 'un just outside off, and Magala didn't seem to pick it, feathering a drive through to the keeper. And Mendis is on a hat-trick 118/7

    19.4 Sipamla is turning it on with the ball once again! Tahir backs away to leg and Sipamla bursts through him with a pinpoint yorker. He's on a hat-trick 139/9

    2 but this won't help! Dala confuses Cloete with a slower ball on his legs, the batsman glancing too early and presenting midwicket with a simple catch 10/1
    4.5 caught behind! This wicket could be so, so important. Magala slanted another ball across de Zorzi, who hung his bat out and sent a thin edge through to the keeper. The rain is closing in, and this will set Spartans behind the par score 34/2

    5.1 and he strikes first ball! AB de Villiers has fallen, given lbw after being struck on the boot attempting a paddle to fine leg. But was that outside off? Marginal call, but he's got to go. This wicket may well have decided the match, as they're going off 35/3
