    1.6 bowled him, no doubt this time! De Villiers plays on, there'll be no Wanderers mauling this week... Tight lines from Hastings and de Villiers was trying to force it off the back foot, got a thick inside edge into off stump 15/1
    7.6 bowled him, de Kock is chopped down! Looked like he played around a full toss but Faulkner is happy either way... It was full and straight, he tried to clip to leg and got an inside edge on to his stumps 77/2
    19.5 picks out deep midwicket! The fun is over for Faf! Full toss does the job for Hastings, this time du Plessis didn't quite get hold of it and he found the man in the deep 198/7
    10.6 similar ball, similar shot - but this time he picks out deep midwicket! Duminy hangs his head in frustration, it was a half-tracker there to be hit but he seemed to get it off the toe of the bat and it went straight and true to the man stationed on the fence 103/3
    14.6 goes for another maximum but finds long-off! The bat skewed in the hands slightly, got under the shot and Maxwell positioned himself safely underneath to give Agar his maiden T20I wicket. Kong has been downed 142/4
    16.4 hit out or get out... and Behardien is gone! It was a full toss, out the back of the hand, Behardien was at least trying to do some damage but he caught it off the toe of the bat and holed out to deep midwicket 151/5
    18.1 slogged into the deep and taken! Morris aims for the big boomer over extra cover but doesn't quite have the power required and Warner leaps to take it above his head... A standing slap from Morris, who fails to cash in this time 165/6

    0.4 fantastic bowling! That's a textbook yorker, lock the replay of that one away for your career, Kagiso. Dead-eye accurate on middle and off, squeezes under the toe end of Finch's bat. Done for pace. 2/1
    5.4 another terrific catch! They are holding everything at the moment. Duminy running back from point this time. Short outside off, Watson having another full-blown swing at it. The ball doesn't have the distance this time, but Duminy still did superbly to take it over his shoulder. Would also have had Rabada in the corner of his hand coming from third man 32/3
    5.1 oh, my goodness! What a catch by Rabada at third man. This is stunning and will take be a moment to explain. It was a short-of-a-length delivery outside off, Smith throws the kitchen sink at it and a top edge flies towards third man. Rabada started by running in and actually came too far. He realised, then just thrust up his right hand above his head and the ball stuck. Then, it was able to keep hold as he tumbled to the crowd. A mind-boggling grab 28/2

    19.1 got him! That man Rabada does it again! Full, straight, Warner swinging across the line and misses. The Wanderers crowd goes wild. Actually took Warner's back leg and deflected into the stumps 194/5
    18.5 and he's gone! Doesn't connect cleanly as he swings at a length delivery, skews off the face of the bat and reaches deep cover 193/4
