8.6 van Wyk departs, he skips out, hasn't been able to get under it, has ended up hitting it high, and long on has settled under it 57/4
    0.5 he's turned it straight to midwicket, it was short outside off, Delport could have put it away, but swung it to the fielder 5/1
    1.2 two down, Chetty tries to go over midwicket with this shortish ball outside off, but lobs it up tamely for mid on to jog across and take it 6/2
    7.6 gone this time, Jaarsveld walks out, Chawla pulls back the length a bit, it is the googly, spins away, bounces and beats him, Uthappa reacts quickly to whip off the bails 53/3
    16.6 two in two, he fetches a full delivery from well outside off and slog sweeps, Chawla in business again at deep midwicket to take this flat hit 136/7
    14.4 Narine with the breakthrough, Phehlukwayo departs, misses a swipe at this straighter one, and Narine is bang on target 120/5
    16.5 Frylinck holes out to deep midwicket, finds Chawla, who is quite some distance in from the rope, Frylinck lunged forward on a bent knee looking to swipe it over midwicket, but got a rather tame connection on it 136/6
    17.4 Vandiar finds Yadav now, and he takes the simpler chance, Vandiar slammed it straight and flat and Yadav was around at long off 138/8
