    3.2 back of a length angling across off stump, gets a little higher than the previous ball, and his attempted half-forward slog is only a top edge in the end for mid-on to catch easily in front of his eyes 33/1
    7 Potter's conjured something! Dunk is his first wicket. Tosses it up nicely on off stump, Dunk sees it flighted and his hands get hard. Doesn't get to the pitch as he tries to flay this over covers and it bobs up towards the fielder, who takes a couple of step backwards and times his jump to perfection 60/2
    13.3 gone. Two in four balls. Slower ball, fairly full. Steps out, hits through the line, strikes it fairlt well, but can't get enough power into the shot to clear long-on 97/4
    13.1 Strikes first ball of new spell. Full and straight, Hodge slogs across the line and misses and this crashes into the middle of leg stump 95/3
    18.3 and gets him. Well bowled. Banged it in short, angled it across, made him pull against the angle. Can't connect well enough, hits high on the bat and loops up for a simple catch at mid-on 138/6
    17.5 shortish outside off, looks to pull, can't quite middle it. He's slightly late on it, ends up hitting from down to up, and scoops a catch to the man on the square leg boundary 132/5
    18.4 and again, slants it full and wide. Smith slashes and nicks through to the keeper. He was struggling against this angle of attack, clearing his front leg all the time, forgetting the old-fashioned art of getting his front foot across to get close to the line 138/7
    19.3 bouncer over middle stump, Sodhi misses the pull, and someone is run out! They looked to sneak a bye, and Handscomb had plenty of time to measure out an underarm flick at the batsman's end to catch Neser well short 143/8

    5.4 low full toss on leg stump, he hits it nervously in the air with no power, straight to long-on. That was strange from Quiney, he was either expecting a slower ball or wanted to hit that wider than it went 52/2
    4.3 floats it on a good length on middle stump. Wright has gotten impatient after being tied up. He steps out, gets to the pitch and tries to hammer it over long-on, but doesn't get any elevation. Easy catch and Dunk has his first wicket at senior level limited-overs cricket 44/1
    13.5 fired in on middle stump, pushed away with soft hands into the open leg side. They scramble for the second, Sodhi has gotten across and thrown it to Hodge at the non-strikers end. It has been referred to the third umpire. AND IT LOOKS OUT! Pietersen is short of his crease! Big wicket for the Strikers! Sodhi can do no wrong. We're in for a finish now! 107/6
    7.2 drifted into off stump on a good length, and holds its line to hit it! Handscomb plays a sweep to this, but it has gone straight through him. It didn't angle in enough for the sweep, nor did it give him the safety of turning away and missing the stumps. Good bowling. 59/3
    8.3 that is ugly from Stoinis. Back of a length, angled down towards leg stump. Stoinis, has premeditated this. Steps out at it, gets himself tangled and tries a last minute hoick to clear mid-on. It gets the top of his bat and bobs up for the bowler to complete a straightforward catch 62/4
    11.2 fired in short on off stump, gets back and gets this pull shot right in the middle, but straight to short midwicket! 84/5
    18.2 BEAUTY! 112 kph, full slower ball on off stump and Gulbis has not picked this. He plays for line and tries to turn it down to fine leg but it has gone under his bat and clips off stump 144/7

    19 It has worked! he brings the field in, tempts Boland to make room and swipe it through the off side, but he's just not that good! Perfect yorker on middle stump and it's a beautiful sight as the bails fly off 150/8
