    101.1 and there it is, the end of an excellent innings. Rudolph attempts to go over the top and gets a thick inside edge dragging the ball back onto his stumps. Matshikwe is rewarded with his fifth for the innigs too. 406/10
    45 finally the Lions get the breakthrough, Bodibe is trapped in front and the titans lose their first. 187/1
    61.5 fine snick to first slip and Petersen makes no mistake. Titans lose their second. 242/2
    80 walks down the track and miss-times the over-the-top drive straight into the hands of Matshikwe at mid-on. 304/3
    81.4 fine snick through to the keeper and Titans lose their fourth. Excellent line and length from Matshikwe, luring van Jaarsveld onto the from foot and getting the outside edge. 307/4
    87.2 trapped right in front of middle and off-stump, an enormous shout from Matshikwe and he gets his man. Wiese is dissapointed as he really looked to be hitting the ball quite well. Ttitans lose their fifth. 350/5
    91.2 another wicket for atshikwe as he hits the stumps of Mosehle this time. Titans losing wickets at a constant rate now after having a very solid day. Rudolph still in at 186 not out. 363/6

    96.1 first ball of the day! Clean bowled as O'Reilly uproots both middle- and offstump. Excellent delivery first up. What a start to this second day of action. 382/8
    98 short of a length and on line of off-stump, Harris attempts to defend but gets an edge through to MCKenzie at first slip who pouches it with great ease. Rudolp still not out on 193. 385/9

    2.3 short of a length and straight, attempted defensive shot sees the ball just pop up and a diving Viljoen takes a great catch. Cook is gone. 11/1
    9 full and straight, moving back slightly off the deck, Petersen goes across the line and it strapped right in front. The umpire doesn't hesitate at all and the Lions are two down. 48/2
    33.4 short and slowish, attempted pull goes straight to backward square leg. Vandiar, the dangerman, is gone. 147/5
    11.1 first ball up and Wiese takes the wicket of skipper Neil McKenzie. Flicked straight to CJ De Villiers at mid-on. 53/3
    20.3 full and straight, gets just enough movement to get De Bruyn playing down the wrong line. Lions lose their fourth before reaching 100. 95/4
    34.4 short-of-a-length and just outside off, Bavuma attempts to defend and gets a thick edge to Behardien at 2nd slip. Lions in big trouble at 151/6. 151/6
    71.3 trapped right in front of the wickets on the front foot. Very good innings comes to an end and the Titans will be happy to see Tsolekile walk off the field. 306/8
    59.1 full and straight and goes slightly across the line, Deacon trapped in front and has to go. Good innigs saving some face for the Lions and putting them back in this game. 250/7
    72.2 and there goes the last wicket as well, another leg before wicket. Full and straight delivery and Deeb plays across the line and all around it, hits him smack in front and that was hitting middle and leg, no questions asked. 306/10
    71.5 another one, carbon-copy of Tsolekile's dismissal, Harris strikes twice with LBWs in two deliveries. 306/9

    37.4 another great innings comes to an end, enormous appeal from Deeb asif just not accepting anything else but a wicket and eventually Gerrie Pienaar lifts the finger. Looked quite straight from here. 150/4
    4 Matshikwe strikes again, the nightwatchman,Mosehle, departs. 22/1
    5.2 short of a length and the ball gets a bit of extra bounce, ball pops up back to the bowler who takes a good catch. 32/2
    24.3 popped straight back to De Bruyn and the change of ends have worked for the Lions. De Bruyn gets his man. 105/3
    56.3 full and straight and the ball cuts in just a little bit off the deck getting van Jaarsveld to play down the wrong line and that might just have hit all three stumps. 238/5
    76.5 short and straight once more, attempted pull-shot from Wiese but doesn't control the ball and hits it down the throaght of O'Reilly down at fine leg. 334/6

    27.2 full and straight, hits Cook right in fornt as he plays down the wrong line. 92/3
    0.5 pulled straight to square leg and Lions lose their first, that is a big blow early up. 5/1
    2.2 short of a lenght and just outside off, gets just enough movement off the deck to get the fine little outside edge. 9/2
    28.4 another LBW and the Lions are in big trouble at 92/5. They have now lost three wickets without scoring a single run in the last two overs. 92/5
    27.5 clean-bowled, second ball, attempted forward defence, plays down the wrong line and finds his off-stump hit. 92/4
    30 another one down, De Bruyn miss-judges the line of the ball, made no real attempt at a shot and also finds the top of off-stump clipped. 96/6
    33.4 full and straight and Bavuma doesn't really offere a shot at that, might have hit outside the line of off, but that was hitting for all money. 109/7

    58.5 and the fairytale partnership has come to an end, excellent fighting spirit and innings from Deacon as the extra bounce just gets his wicket. Harris delighted. 214/8
    64.4 edged and taken in the slips, Deeb looks a bit disappointed as if he didn't touch it, but there was no hesitation for the umpire and a chorus of appeals. 224/9
    68.3 another LBW, this one seemed a bit controversial from the box, with Harris coming left arm over the wickets the the right-hander, but in fairness, it did hit Matshikwe on the full and seemed to be the quicker, straight delivery. 232/10
