    9.3 chipped to mid-off, Parnell strikes! Maybe stopped in the pitch a fraction... Certainly Warner was not on top of a regulation check drive, looped off the face of the bat and Phehlukwayo held on running to his right. All going off in Parnell's opening over 64/1
    12.1 short ball, flicked off the body in the air, Parnell throws himself forward at short fine leg... but did it carry? The SA fielders think so but Finch stands his ground and the third umpire will have to make a call on this. It was a tumbling effort on the edge of the ring, looks on first glance that he managed to get his fingers under the ball; but, with the number of replays being looked at by Nigel Llong, we're into the realms of foreshortening. But no, it's given! Think that's the right call, in real time Parnell appeared to have scooped it up from above the turf. Phehlukwayo - surely time we nicknamed him "Lucky" - gets his wicket 88/2
    12.4 fuller, straighter, rattling into the pads... up goes the finger! Smith seemed to simply misjudge the length, caught on the crease trying to glance to leg, but he reviews the decision, hoping for a reprieve. No chance, that's hitting middle and leg, Smith is out! Two in the over for "Lucky"! 90/3
    47.1 the slower ball does him! Bailey gets right underneath it and slogs to mid-on, all height and no trousers, Australia's linchpin falls! Still almost three overs to go but Bailey had to try and get on with it if they are to breach 300 278/8
    18.6 edged, and stunningly caught by a one-handed de Kock behind the stumps! The extra delivery pays dividends, as Marsh hangs back in the crease, is drawn into a loose poke by the extra bounce, and the keeper snaffles it almost in slow motion, high to his right! Lucky strikes again! Trebles all round! 131/4
    25.5 that is tremendous wrist-spin bowling. Beautiful flight, luring Head out of the crease, dipping late, and lo and behold, it's the googly to boot. Zips past a flailing edge like a winger side-stepping the fullback, and off come the bails! 172/5
    28.5 on the pads, clipped to midwicket and David Miller, on the dive, smashes the stumps at the non-striker's end with Wade nowhere close to the picture! Outstanding sharp work and a vital breakthrough 192/6
    45.1 got him, launched down the ground but straight to long-off, picked him out perfectly! He's got the touch today, Phehlukwayo strikes first ball - bowled for and got, I'm sure. Hastings' defiant rearguard some to an end 271/7
    49.1 scooped straight up and taken at mid-on! Second wicket for Dale Steyn, a carbon copy of Bailey's dismissal, the cutter too cute for Zampa and it's catching practice for Miller on the edge of the circle 286/9

    33.4 dug in again, de Kock hooks hard - but this time it's his undoing! Head takes another superbly judged catch running along the rope and de Kock has to walk off 11 short of a national record... Centurion stands for the centurion, he gets some handshakes on his way off. A quite brilliant innings that has made a difficult chase look simple 280/4

    17.1 that's a bingo, strikes first ball! Tosses up the legbreak from over the wicket, Rossouw attempts a reverse sweep and is hit on the front pad, the ball spinning back in - looked pretty adjacent to off stump. Job's a good'un for the moustachoied young spinner 145/1
    31.4 bowled him, Faf plays on! Boland doesn't bother to celebrate, decent ball that maybe nibbled back in a touch, slightly loose poke from the captain and the zing bails light up 268/2
    33.2 hooks the bumper, excellent take at deep square leg! So Duminy crashes the party and then ends up falling the pool... Another wicket for Boland, courtesy a low grab diving in from the boundary by Head 280/3
