    4.3 Hastings draws the outside edge and breaks this busy opening stand. Full and outside off from wide of the crease. Kallis plays away from the body as he throws his hands at a drive and nicks it behind 36/1
    7.5 Zampa strikes in his first over. Blizzard holes out to long-on. He comes down the track, does not get close to the pitch and drags it to Wright who grabs it and plays up with the crowd 55/2
    9 trapped plumb in front! Darted full and straight, Watson is struck flush on the front boot as he does not connect with a sweep. It would have hit middle and off 59/3
    12.5 flighted full and on middle, Maxi gets Hussey lbw! He steps forward and is rapped on the front pad. It would have hit middle and leg 101/4
    17.4 Faulkner pulls off a cracker of a catch! Takes down Russell. Banged in short and rises outside off, Russell muscles it towards long-on. Faulkner is in the way... He leaps off his feet, and takes an overhead catch by the edge of the boundary. He hangs onto the ball even as he tumbles onto the ground 154/5
    18.5 short on middle, Rohrer connects well with a pull but picks out Maxi at deep midwicket. Simple catch and Boland breaks his duck on the wickets column 159/6

    5.3 two in two! Russell gets another. Full on middle, Stoinis is beaten for pace and the ball sneaks through and hits Stoinis in front. The umpire gives him but replays show the ball was going over middle 48/2
    5.2 gone! Back of a length on middle and off, Wright goes fore the pull but can only slice a lob to mid-on. Easily taken by Hussey over his head. The extra pace of Andre did for Wright who struggled with timing on that stroke 48/1
    18.2 gone! Massive wicket. Short delivery on middle, KP goes for the pull and can only top-edge it to fine leg, Fawad nervously gets under it and hold on. Lots of relief from Fawad, but an amazing innings from KP 164/5
    8.5 gone! Maxwell has picked out the man at short midwicket. Goes for the pull but toe-ends the ball to Sandhu. Massive wicket. The ball was there to hit but the ball did not get to Maxi as quick as he expected 67/3
    10.3 bowled im. Gone. Hussey goes for the slog over midwicket and misses completely. The ball clips the leg stump 80/4
