    7.1 and he strikes straight away! fuller length and swinging in appreciably as Rassie is unable to get any bat on it. McMillan knows it instantly, and Billy Bowden confirms it soon after. First wicket down for the Lions 44/1

    11.5 flighted again from Beard, just outside off, and Bavuma shuffles down for the big shot, but misses it completely, as the keeper, who fumbles it initially, is able to clip the bails in time before Bavuma lands his bat. Needless shot as these two were looking to build a solid partnership for the end overs. A wicket against the run of play and Otago will feel slightly more relieved 73/2
    11.6 and Beard strikes again! this one is so plumb it should be in the Oxford dictionary when you look for LBW. Straight and on target and Alviro plays outside the line to make it three down for the Lions. 73/3
    18.1 Symes goes for the heave through midwicket, but gets an edge which carries through to de Boorder, who takes it safely. Otago will be slightly buoyed, but know there is much still to do 149/4

    1.6 length ball and Broom will be unable to replicate his efforts from the other night as he ends up holing this straight to mid on. A tame dismissal after a rather wayward over from O'Reilly 16/1
    9.5 googly from Tahir and Rutherford goes for the cover drive, but only gets a deflection through to de Kock who completes a tough catch. Tahir is simply over the moon as he frantically decides which area to run to, even before the umpire has raised his finger. 78/3
    3.2 fuller length and it looks like I may have jinxed BMac again... The master of disaster falls for a paltry 5 with a lofted shot to mid on from a slower ball. Lions will feel very satisfied having removed two big wickets in Broom and now McCullum. 27/2
    13.4 and Derek's misery finally ends with the midwicket heave he had been attempting all along. He hits this in the area, but not well enough, as he finds Bavuma at deep midwicket 101/5
    12.5 another slower, fuller length ball just outside off and the Tsotsobe claims the big wicket of Tendo as he spoons this to short extra-cover. Three significant batsmen back in the dug out, and Lions sniffing a chance here 97/4

    14.4 short delivery outside off and would you believe that Nathan edges this directly to second slip who must still be in disbelief as to how that could have come about? It looks like the 15-match streak may not be a reality after all.. 103/6
    17.1 and straight away he does the business with a slower delivery, delivered at 108kph, with the ball cutting in to hit the leg stump. On target and the dangerous Butler goes 136/7
