Odoyo to Joyce, no run, on leg stump, Joyce comes forward and rather falls away in the process and nudges it to leg

Odoyo to Joyce, no run, cracking ball! Terrible shot, mind...just feeling for it outside off. Very wafty.

Odoyo to Joyce, 1 run, tucked off his hip for a single just behind square. Odoyo's lines rather inconsistent so far

Vaughan on strike

Ongondo to Joyce, no run, good start, but a good leave from Joyce. Just short of a length, Joyce leaves well alone and it takes the wicketkeeper by surprise, spitting up at him and he takes it head height
1.2

Ongondo to Joyce, no run, fuller this time, allowing Joyce to defend it with caution on the front foot. "No run" is the call

Ongondo to Joyce, FOUR, oh, delicious shot, an elegant check-drive through cover for four. Pure timing

Ongondo to Joyce, no run, better line just outside off, Joyce watches it pass by

South Africa are pretty much up with the required run rate at the moment in their match with Australia.

Ongondo to Joyce, no run, solidly forward and pushed out square of the wicket

Odoyo to Vaughan, no run, very full, Vaughan almost caught by surprise there. Back in his crease he digs it out to mid-on

Odoyo to Vaughan, 1 run, oops, didn't look like Vaughan was really in control of that, slashing a wide delivery aerially past the two slips through a vacant gully, and down to third man

Odoyo to Joyce, no run, Joyce goes for a fierce cut stroke, but it's about as well timed as one of my jokes
2.4

Odoyo to Joyce, no run, good delivery rising up at the left-hander who is back in his crease, defending it with a straight bat

To be sure, to be sure

Odoyo to Joyce, FOUR, good grief that's well timed. On leg stump, he just turned his wrists, playing it at the last minute and it fairly zooted behind square for four. Fine leg didn't have a chance

Odoyo to Joyce, 2 leg byes, gone! No, but mere millimetres from plucking out his off stump. I'm not sure it didn't clip it, actually - swinging in late to Joyce, so much so that the wicketkeeper was beaten too

Ongondo to Vaughan, OUT, Gone! No easy pickings for Vaughan today. The ball spat up at him and all Vaughan could do was fend it, meekly, to Obuya at backward point who dived to his left and took an excellent, low catch

Ongondo to Bell, no run, Bell is confidently, cheekily forward - half a step down the pitch - and prods at it, nudging it back to the bowler before roaring "no" with surprising volume

Ongondo to Bell, 3 runs, ah, a neat tuck through midwicket, very well timed
3.4

Ongondo to Joyce, 1 run, nicely bowled again, on off stump and it rather kept low, judging by the crab-like defence Joyce offered, spearing it wide of gully and allowing them to scamper a single

Ongondo to Bell, no run, another half step down the pitch, Ongondo sends it a touch wide and Bell feels for it, tamely. And misses.

Ongondo to Bell, FOUR, a big stride down the pitch to a wider ball, Bell punches it with the straightest of bats past mid-off

Well timed
