    3.6 bowled'em! Morris is pumped (or angry), he gives Shahzad a proper send-off! Cracker of a ball, leaving Shahzad's stumped splayed. Speared at 149ks, angled in, opens up the batsman, and straightens. Too good for Shahzad. Too good for any batsman. The middle stump is pegged back 52/1
    11.5 Tahir stumps Noor Ali. He uses his feet, Tahir knows it. He fires a flat dart and beats the charging batsman on length. Sneaks through the gate. Qdk does the rest 109/4
    5.2 Morris is turning things around for SA. Lifting ball at 145ks, Morris pounds the deck. Stanikzai has a crease-bound waft at it and feathers it behind to Qdk. The finger goes up 60/2
    10.3 Abbott dupes Gulbadin with a slower one. Short in length at 123ks, extra bounce, the batsman is early into the cut. He can only feed an edge to Qdk 105/3
    15.1 Dolly catch for AB with the hat at long-on. Dangled up, comes in on middle, googly? Nabi goes for the lofted hit and holes out. No wild celebratory runs, though, from Tahir. Googly it is 140/5
    17.1 fullish and around off, Sami goes low and ends up ramp-scooping it into the hands of backward point. Soft, soft dismissal 156/7
    16.6 nice and full outside off, Najib plays away from the body. Throws his hands at a drive and gets an outside edge to Qdk 156/6
    18.3 Timbaaaaahh! No celebrations at all from Morris. He has been a angry man tonight. Rashid shuffles across off, Morris nails an off-stump yorker. It tails in and cannons on to off via an inside edge 167/8
    18.6 The middle stump takes a beating. It lies flat on the floor. Morris caps off his spell with a wicket. Nice and full on middle, curls in, Dawlat ventures across off, and misses the scoop 169/9

    19.6 Rabada hurls a yorker and cleans him up. Shapoor backs away outside leg, Rabada hits the blockhole and the leg stump. The No.11 can't dig it out. SA win by 37 runs, they stay in control of their fate 172/10
