    8.5 and another! Tahir's in the game. Khawaja goes for the sweep, doesn't keep the ball down and it's snaffled at deep square-leg 78/2
    8.2 held this time! Watch a catch. Du Plessis holds on. Almost a carbon-copy of the previous ball, Watson reaching for a wide delivery and lofting it very high into the off side. Du Plessis again runs back from cover and this time pulls out a successful dive to hold on 76/1
    18.3 well, he's struck...a low full toss outside off which Smith tries to scoop into the leg side and can only get a top edge which loops to de Kock as he runs from behind the stumps 169/4
    17.1 has Tahir's arm beaten Warner?! Yes, he's been run out. Warner swung himself off his feet reaching for a full, wide delivery which he sliced to third man. Tahir's throw was hard and low to de Kock, who collected cleanly this time and Warner is well short 157/3
