0.3 first wicket! This is a loose loose shot! He comes forward to this length delivery and pushes at it away from the body, giving a simple head-high catch to the point fielder 0/1
    3.6 gets the wicket finally! Another back of length delivery swinging away from the batsman, the batsman pokes at it but only gets an outside edge to the keeper.. 27/2
    5.5 superb ball! Samson gives it away. It was tossed up on the off and middle, the drift brings it in, the loop draws Samson out of the crease.. But it doesn't turn, keeps going straight to hit the top of middle 37/3
    6.3 big big wicket! The tide is turning in Sunrises' favour.. Loose shot from Watson as he tries to cut this short of length delivery, it was too close to cut really.. He gets a faint nick to the keeper 41/4
    13.4 Warner you beauty! This is sensational stuff. The batsman dabs it to midwicket and calls for a second.. This looked like a two.. but Warner hared in, swooped the ball and hit the stumps direct at non-striker's end.. Binny has to go back.. Binny is way way short.. 78/5
    15.4 They are all on fire! Pathan completes an excellent catch.. With time running out, Smith looks for the big shot at this quick length delivery, he only manages a big top-edge. Irfan runs backwards from mid-off to settle under it 82/6
    17.2 slower delivery, Bhatia swings this time.. he goes towards deep midwicket.. again more height than distance.. Warner takes a simple catch 89/8
    17.1 slower delivery, Faukner has no option but to swing at it, he hits in the right area, plays his natural game, but unfortunately it doesn't work for him today .. Finch comes round from long on to take a neat catch 89/7
    17.6 slower ball, batsman swings, this time it doesn't even go beyond the square.. it goes high, touches the moon, but on its wayback, meets the bowler.. who was running backwards.. Superb catch again 91/9
    not out
    19.5 Game over! Tambe chips the length delivery straight to Steyn at long-off 102/10
