    16.1 The first time Hopes times a ball after a long time, unfortunately, he hits it straight to the man at long off. Big wicket for the Titans as Hopes looked destined to play a captain's knock 84/5
    2.1 and he strikes first ball! Richards spears this on middle/leg, and Burns, looking to clear midwicket, ends up top-edging straight in the air, with Marchant de Lange taking a comfortable catch 7/1
    4.3 short again and straight and this time Forrest glances this, but uppishly, and unfortunately for him, finds Farhaan Behardien at square leg for a simple catch. And with that, Titans now have two 24/2
    4.5 Cutting doesn't last too long out there, as he tries to back away to the leg side to another snorter from de Lange, but ends up spooning towards cover 24/3
    13.1 full length ball and Christian plays all around this, getting his middle peg knocked down. Definitely a wicket against the run of play 68/4
    17.3 full toss slower ball and Lynn can do no better than find Roelof at deep extra-cover. This one could have been drilled anywhere. Wonder how much this will affect the chase? 94/6
    18.1 bowled him! Hartley goes for the mow straight down the ground, and Morne nails the off stump. Some added suspense to this encounter with the wicket falling in the late overs 104/7
    19.1 full toss on middle and Sabburg flicks this to midwicket, immediately setting off for the single. He wants two, however, and that is the fatal mistake as is well short of his ground when the throw from the deep by Roelof reaches Mosehle, the keeper, who whips off the bails, and Hau 115/8
    19.2 short ball and Hauritz, who backs away to try and hit it over the keeper, is unable to get anything on it. He goes for the single though, as his partner is scrambling to make the run, but Gale is short of his ground when the keeper runs down the striker's end 115/9
    not out
    19.6 full and on middle and it's all over. De Lange is the hero as he makes a mess of McDermott's stumps. Terrific ball under pressure 119/10
