    0.3 short of a length and clubbed off the back foot to cover - and they take a quick single but they will have to be quick. And the throw comes in to Ramdin who whips off the bails and celebrates immediately - he's short of his ground! 1/1
    15.4 bowled him! Went for an injudicious sweep to a full ball and was bowled around his legs 97/6
    1.6 he's got him! This held up in the pitch a touch and du Plessis drove this floatily to the biggest man in the stadium, Mr S Benn, who came tumbling forward at mid-off to take a fine catch. It's gone to replays to check that Benn got his hands underneath it 13/2
    2.6 oh dear, oh dear, an awful shot - a floaty little gift outside off, just short of a length, and Rossouw cuts but skies it to Russell at point 20/3
    7.4 Bravo's slower ball does the trick again! And it's the crucial wicket of de Villiers who, attempting an outrageous flick through midwicket, got a thick inside edge straight onto his stumps. My word. 46/4
    8.2 bowled him! Gayle's bowled him. Straight through Miller's defences who, on the back foot, missed it completely - played completely the wrong line 47/5
    17.2 he's skied this to the Moon and back - it's gone miles! But Sammy's as safe as houses, and takes a comfortable catch at mid-off 112/7

    19.6 swings, misses - Ramdin wings down the stumps. That is so sharp from him, and from West Indies 122/8

    11.1 outside off, a huge swipe but he's skied this to the moon and back! Faf is under it at cover or thereabouts, and takes it comfortably, tumbling to the deck but pouching it safely 66/3
    0.5 what a delivery from Rabada - he's knocked over the king, and is the new king a South African?! What a ball, swinging in late on the left-hander who attempted a cross-batted stroke and lost his off stump. Bowled him! 5/1
    5.3 Rossouw's done it for South Africa - played out to point, Rossouw's in quickly and sends in a return to the non-striker's end. A direct hit! He's short - poor running but a brilliant throw! 34/2
    18.5 he's got him - it's a huge wicket! Samuels stepped to leg, as he so often has in this innings, and tried to pull the ball over midwicket but could only sky it to AB de Villiers running in at long-on 113/7
    13.6 gone! Wasteful slap by Bravo to a fullish delivery outside off, opening the face, to backward point 87/4
    16.4 huge slog across the line from Russell and Miller takes the catch easily at deep midwicket, barely moving a muscle! 100/5
    16.5 bowled him with a wrong'un! A stunning delivery given the pressure, and Tahir's off on one of his celebrations - quite rightly too! 100/6
