    5.5 no shot, bad misjudgement and the Lions in early strife 5/2

    26.5 taken on the back foot, umpire Hurter thinks a while and then raises the finger 54/5

    31.1 big booming drive, but all he can do is edge it to 2nd slip at a comfortable height 56/7
    39.2 all wrapped up as he edges to first slip, the Lions have suffered the lowest SSS total of the season to date. 86/10
    38.1 edged to gully, the collapse continues 78/9

    28.4 Puttick, was going through a quiet patch but now gets a fine edge 108/3
    3.2 pops a bit and he gloves it to third slip, not easy for the batsmen out there 10/1
    5.4 looks to mow it over mid wicket but gets a faint edge, lingers a while before trudging off in disappointment 18/2

    72 gets well forward to defend, is a bit amazzed to see umpire Hurter raising the finger 250/4
    77.1 Kemp is also stunned to see himself given out, it hit him on the back foot and came back sharply - off the inside edge maybe? No TV here, so we will never know 254/5
    84 another mistimed back fott drive, but this time it is in the air long enough for hendricks to dive to his left and snap up the catch 274/6
    97.4 loses patience and goes for the big hit, but he skies it to mid wicket 340/8
    98.1 tempted into the hook, and he has hit it straight down the throat of the man on the long leg boundary 340/9
    98.5 has an almighty swing at it, gets a faint edge. There was some doubt whether it had carried, but Louw takes the keeper's word and walks off 341/10
