    1.2 caught behind! Sipamla aims a cross seamed delivery full and wide, inviting the drive, and Markram has a full go at it. All he can do is send a thick edge through to Cloete behind the stumps, however, and Spartans strike early 3/1
    2.3 Markram is run out! He's done in by a direct hit from Morgan in the covers. Du Plessis tapped the ball to Morgan's left and called for another, but Markram was very slow out of the blocks and the throw caught him well short 12/2
    5.4 du Plessis is caught at cover by de Villiers! Sipamla aimed one full and du Plessis didn't bother keeping his drive down, but he could only get it as far as de Villiers at cover. Fitting, in a way, that it's his old school-mate and South Africa team-mate that gets him 48/3
    6.2 never mind what he looks like, von Berg has struck almost straight away to remove van Jaarsveld! The left hander used his feet to try to get to the pitch, and wasn't quite to it but went through with a big hit into the leg side, holing out to long on. Nice catch under pressure from Agathangelou, who was really close to the ropes 48/4
    9.2 sliced miles in the air, and it's easily caught by AB de Villiers! Sipamla speared the ball down full again, and Bravo backed away to give himself room but sliced underneath his drive, sending the ball straight up into the air. De Villiers settled underneath it with safe hands, and Spartans regain control 83/5
    12.3 is that out? The umpire wants to have a second look. It was a slower ball outside off from Frylinck, and Wiese tried to slap it past point. But he's deceived by the lack of pace, and the cut has been edged to the keeper. The question is whether Cloete took the catch clean as the ball was dipping on him. Aaand the replays show it's a well-judged take. Wiese must make the long walk back 94/6
    13.3 hit high, but not long enough! Full outside off, and he clears his front leg to try and muscle a slog over long off. Ball spins away after pitching, and the shot takes the bat's toe end. In the air for eternity, but eventually comes down to Earth, and long off is under that to complete a tricky catch 96/7
    13.5 edged again, but this time there's a fielder at slip! Tossed up nicely outside off, and Fortuin goes for the drive again. Driven with the turn, but it takes the bat's shoulder, and a diving catch at first slip sends Fortuin back 100/8
    17.4 full and wide outside off stump, and he skips down the wicket to slap this over cover. Mistimed, sliced, and taken at long on. Rocks all out for 121 121/10
    17.2 inside-edged to the keeper! The googly earns Mendis the wicket. Full outside off, and the tailender goes for an expansive drive. The ball spins inwards, takes the inside-half of the bat, and deposits itself near the keeper's groin. He composes himself, collects the ball from between his legs, and completes the catch to send Paarl nine down 120/9

    11.2 full outside off stump, and he gets down on one knee to slog a shot down deep midwicket's throat! Ball spinning away from the left-hander, and the shot has been toe-ended 72/3
    5 Elgar is run out! Wonderful reactions from Wiese, who stuck to the leg-side bowling plan and struck Elgar on the pad as he missed yet another glance. Elgar wanted to steal a single, but Wiese charged through his follow through, collected the ball, and threw down the stumps before Elgar could get back 30
    9.4 gloves a scooped shot to the keeper! But Agathangelou is disappointed. He doesn't think he's hit the ball. Length ball on off, and he tried to ramp it over the keeper, but it gets a delicate touch off his body and lobs into the wicketkeeper's hands. The ball definitely touched his elbow. Did it touch the glove? Replays are inconclusive 63/2
    11.3 through him! Full on off, and draws AB forward. AB tries to drive, but the ball spins inwards, goes between bat and pad, and flattens middle stump. Shamsi's off for a run! 73/4
    13.1 Shamsi gets another! Full on middle, and Morgan goes for the reverse sweep. It's a shot he loves to play, so can't blame him for choice of shot. Impact on middle stump, and that would've definitely hit the left-hander's off stump 82/5
    18.5 slower ball, length ball, and he looks to pull from outside the stumps. Deceived by the lack of pace, and the shot has been scooped straight to deep midwicket 110/6
