    34.5 slogs again, but this one won't clear the rope... well taken by long-on running in! Tahir finally induces another mistake, having got Finch earlier, but Warner has played a superb knock. Was looking to plant Tahir into the stands again but went pretty much straight up 234/2
    13.1 launched into the sky, but it lobs to mid-off, Tahir makes the breakthrough! One big hit too many for Finch, sent it pretty much straight up and he has to head straight off, as Tahir weaves away in trademark arms-whirling high-fiving celebration. Twas the googly that did it 110/1

    46.2 bowled him, Smith misses a slower ball! He tucks his bat under his arm and walks off, a fantastic knock but he won't go any further... Made a bit of room and was looking to steer through the covers, done by the lack of pace as Steyn sent a cutter into off stump 325/5
    40.5 got him, brilliant catch in the covers! Lucky's slower ball does the trick, though Bailey must have thought he'd collared it, opening the shoulders and slapping in front of square, only for du Plessis to hurl himself to his left and cling on to a pearler two-handed 280/3
    44.2 short ball, Marsh cracks a pull... only to be bagged by another great catch at midwicket! Miller the man on this occasion, diving low to his left and clinging on to give Steyn a wicket and just check Australia's momentum a fraction 300/4
    49.6 full toss to finish and Head top-edges a slog pretty much straight up, Rabada running across to his right to take the catch - although he almost collides with du Plessis running in from cover! They check the delivery for height but it's just the right side of a no-ball, so the innings finishes with a wicket, Head and Wade's rambunctious partnership finally curtailed 371/6

    20.5 touch short and de Kock pulls, h-u-u-u-u-u-u-u-g-e top edge and it swirls above Worrall coming in at fine leg... but he holds on! It was a spectacular take in the end, diving flat out because he was slightly out of position. The burly fast bowler proves he has good hands and that's a massive wicket for Australia 164/3
    8.3 breakthrough! Big John Hastings has done it. Amla across his crease again, aiming to the leg side and is taken on the back leg. He opts not to review. Umpire's call on impact 66/1
    17.2 drops short, du Plessis shovels to the leg side... but picks out deep midwicket! Not the acme of shot selection there (other than in the Warner Bros sense) and Warner roars in celebration 140/2
    23.4 goes for the reverse sweep, misses and the ball canons into the pads - that's out! May have been the quicker delivery from Zampa but, either way, Rossouw picked the wrong shot to play to a full, straight ball that looked to be skidding into middle and off 179/4
    31.1 slapped high into the leg side - but he's picked out the man on the rope! Oh dear, not sure what Duminy was thinking there, a short break in play and that's the partnership scuppered. Swung across the line and Finch barely had to move, a step to the left and clutched to his chest 217/5

    37.4 the dot balls bring a wicket, Pretoious looking to work this from outside off into the leg side and gets a leading edge which loops into the covers...Warner has to take a few steps backwards, but it's simple catch 265/6
