2.3 and that's the first wicket! The pressure of chasing 201 is showing on the batsmen. Davids comes down the track and looks to loft it away. The bat turns in his hand as he plays the shot and goes high up in the air. Abbott runs in from sweeper cover and takes the catch. There were three fielders running in to take the catch 14/1
    14 why did you have to wait till the last ball of the over to bowl a short delivery? This was directed at the ribs by Shezi and as Kuhn was cramped for room, he ventures to dab the ball at the last moment. He only manages to get an outside edge back to the keeper. Kuhn is furious and admonishing himself as he gets back to the dug out 127/3
    9 and the pressure of growing run-rate and the fact that only five runs came from this over contributed to the wicket. de Bruyn takes a couple of steps down the ground and lofts it straight into the hands of Abbott at long-off. The pressure of not getting runs off this over did him in 56/2
    14.5 fuller ball outside the off stump. Behardien made his intentions clear by shuffling to outside the off stump. It was clear that he wanted to play the scoop. Delport pitches it close to the bat, giving him no room whatsoever. He scoops, but off the toe as Shezi dives to his right at short fine-leg and takes a very good catch 131/4
    15.4 full, fast and swinging in. The one player who could've taken Titans to victory is bowled. There was nothing that Albie Morkel could've done to play this any better. Not just him, it would've castled ninety nine players out of hundred. Shezi can look back at fondness whenever he thinks of this delivery from today on 132/6
    15.3 short ball outside the off stump. Wiese pulls, but not with much power. He finds Smit at deep midwicket. He is dismissed for one, but what is crucial is the fact that he played three dot balls 132/5
    18.5 fuller and slower outside the off stump. van Buuren slices it straight into the hands of Delport at point. This is ending all too quickly now 168/9
    16 it's a wicket one ball too late. Short ball on the off stump. van der Merwe, who has only boundaries on his mind, pulls it straight to deep square-leg and Chetty completes the catch. He raises his arms in jubilation. Shezi would be happy with the four wickets he got, three of them in this over 136/7
    18.4 slower and short ball outside the off stump. Mosehle pulls but doesn't get any power behind the shot. Miller runs in and takes the catch. He is everywhere 168/8
    19.2 fuller, faster and swinging in. Ajmal goes for the slog and misses. The leg stump is uprooted. There was a fleeting glimpse of Miller as sunk to his knees in elation and covered himself with his cap 169/10
