    17.3 slower ball does it. On a length, pitched outside leg, but Ingram is too early into the shot, and ends up skying it towards deep midwicket. Little Bravo runs to his right, a long way, and judges the catch well, and then kicks it away 124/2
    12.1 dropped. No, not quite. Gayle has taken the rebound. All Jamaican wicket. Samuels has lopped up a wide half-volley, Amla goes for the extra-cover drive, but doesn't get enough elevation. Gayle nearly drops it from head high, but as the ball is falling in front of him he goes down to complete the catch on the third take. Second take on the right hand, and the third on the left 80/1
    22.1 Little Bravo, you beauty. What a catch. Slower short ball, de Villiers pulls it, high and to the right of midwicket. Bravo goes with it, body slanted, both feet in the air, sticks out the right hand, and holds on. And then coolly walks towards other fielders 153/4
    18.4 strangled down the leg side? Or is he? This is short, down the leg side, he is trying to pull it, but ends up gloving it. Not quite a strangle 128/3
    30.1 yorker outside leg, hits him on the pad, throws the stumps down as they try a leg-bye, and he has caught du Plessis short. That's a set man gone, and the new man will be on the strike too. Superb worl from Bravo in his follow-through 221/5
    30.5 full, on middle and leg, 85mph, so not a slower ball, but Miller is cramped on the drive, and can't beat mid-off 229/6

    11.5 big ball to take the big wicket. Short of a length, Gayle wants to work this to leg with the angle, but it holds its line just enough to take the leading edge to point. Boy that's some edge. It has flown to point when Gayle is looking to play with soft hands 75/2
    6.6 Charles has been unsettled and he plays the wild slog. He steps half down and slogs at this, Steyn gets the top edge from him, and AB de Villiers calls for it and runs to short third man to catch it 35/1
    14.6 full and fast, beats the sweep, there is an appeal for the lbw. It is not given, but South Africa have reviewed this in the rain. The ball is hitting all right, but the umpire thinks it is pitched outside leg. The replays show impact is in line, and he is gone. Big wicket. Superb review 87/3

    23.2 timbaaaaaaaaaah. That's was fuller than before, quick and straight, bowled cross-seam, and then seams back in a touch. Only a touch. Samuels is standing with the front leg opened up, and he swings hard. Beaten by the mix of that pace, seam and skid off. Steyn has struck a huge blow. Tip your hat off to the best bowler in the world 162/5
    17.5 full, into the pads, clipped away, and Amla has not only saved two runs, but he has also taken a wicket. Played to Amla's right at deep midwicket, he first slides and keeps the ball in. He has gone over the ropes, comes back in and throws. Meanwhile Little Bravo doesn't want the third, but Samuels does. Bravo just stands. Samuels runs hard. Seems to have crossed him so it is Bravo who is going off.I know sacrificing his wicket is the right thing for Bravo to do, but has he actually crossed? No replays showing that yet. McLaren has flicked the stumps with his legs before removing the bail, and he is not aware of it. AB de Villiers, though, has spotted it, and has asked McLaren to take the stump out too. And they don't even check if Amla has stopped this inside the boundary. Luckily for them, he has 104/4
    26.1 Pollard has thrown it away. Throws his bat at a short-of-a-length ball, gets the top edge on it, the ball goes as high as it goes long, and Steyn comes under it at third man, and makes no mistake. Now the par score is 190. If we don't get any more cricket in, it's a tie 190/6
