    0.4 slower ball, chipped into the leg side off the toe of the bat, and a superb diving catch going back from mid on. Brilliant take, diving backwards at full length and claiming it with two hands. The slower ball deceived Levi who was backing away trying to give himself room, ended up being too soon with the shot and chipped it up 4/1
    3 down the wicket, now this is agricultural, misses completely and Sangakkara has the bails off before Amla can even say, "oh dear", I think this 7-7 stuff has gone to Amla's head, just play properly! But he's gone swinging, missing totally a ball that was angled in and beat him as he backed away and it went past leg stump 27/2
    6.4 full just outside off, struck down the ground but doesn't clear long off, looked a good strike but it was taken right on the rope 68/4
    6 stepped across the stumps, full again, chipped to mid off, didn't time it at all, straight to the fielder 65/3

    2 leg stump and flicked straight to deep square leg, seemed to pick it up quite nicely but picked out the fielder with perfection, he didn't have to move a few yards in off the rope and took it hands inverted at shoulder height, a solid take 8/2
    0.4 slapped straight to extra cover, Dilshan is slow to come through, in comes the throw, de Villiers take it on the run and dives at the stumps and gets there in time what a play from de Villiers! That was baseball style, taking the ball and getting back to break the stumps, super work 4/1
    6.2 cut straight to deep cover, back of a length ball slapped perfectly to the fielder as he gave himself a hint of room 40/5
    4.5 swing outside off, a thin edge through to the keeper was trying to go leg side, clearing the front leg to a full ball and it came off a top edge to chest height for de Villiers 30/3
    5.2 length ball and pulled to midwicket. Straight ball, tried to go over the leg side but it's takes some to clear these big boundaries, didn't catch it correctly and it landed directly where the fielder had just been moved to on the leg side fence 32/4
