    34.1 gone! What a start this is for SA after the drinks break. A short delivery on middle is pulled powerfully but straight to midwicket. Comfortable height too. Warner was waiting on that back foot and hit it beautifully, just some indecisiveness whether to go over or keep it down. In the end, did neither. But what an innings that was 184/2
    9.6 gone. Finch persists with the sweep. Flat on off, the quicker delivery. Finch clears a front foot and tries to smash his sweep through square leg but was quite far from the ball. The ball missed his cross-batted swat and clattered into off stump. Tahir sets off in typical fashion. Finch struggled for any fluency in that knock. 48/1
    39.1 taken this time! Amla takes it, and Khawaja has to go. Flat on off, Khawaja gets low to sweep and gets another top edge which goes up in the air and is taken at short fine leg. Beautiful bowling, not afraid to give the ball some air even to the left-hander. Australia losing their way 196/3

    42.1 given! Bailey is gone. Wrong un' from Tahir on middle, strikes Bailey in front. Bailey reviews. That looks pretty adjacent. It has spun a little into Bailey and he did have a significant stride. his only hope is height I guess. No bat. Umpire's call, just clipping leg stump so Bailey has to go. 217/4
    45.4 Marsh's struggling innings ends. Another full toss on off, below the waist. Marsh mis-times his heave to midwicket. Did not get any of it there, straight to Behardien at deep midwicket 240/5
    48.6 full and straight, given! Yorker on off, Wade sets up for another scoop and misses it. The ball strikes Wade well outside off though, Umpire Joel Wilson gives him out. Shocking decision, struck him well outside the line 274/6

    7.2 and the encore fails! Hazlewood gets the breakthrough. Good length and wider outside off. He goes across the line again. Last ball he hit it to the left of the fielder, played it finer. Now he shovels it and holes out to deep square leg. Faulkner completes the catch 35/1
    25.4 got im. Amla goes. He has picked out cover to perfection. Overpitched again outside off from Hazlewood, Amla leans on the drive and smashes it straight to Smith at cover who leans forward and takes the catch a few inches off the ground 140/2
    31.1 and he gets the wicket straightaway. Big, big wicket. Full and wide outside off, Faf reaches out for it and can't control the drive. It's in the air and taken at backward point. Huge wicket. Just got a hint of away movement there on that, which was responsible for Faf struggling to control the ball 177/3
    37.5 massive blow! AB is bowled. Good length and (reverse)swings back in, AB swings and Hazlewood rides his car through the gate and parks it on top of the middle stump. Then he roars like this. Mid-off was up and AB was targetting to pump it over that man 210/4
    42.4 Zampa dangles another wrong'un and takes down Duminy. Floated on middle, he goes for the slog sweep again, this time holing out to deep midwicket. Duminy goes and with it SA's hopes? Maxi, the sub, completed the waist-high catch 236/6
    40.3 FB has been given out lbw by umpire Llong. FB wants a review after consulting with his senior partner. Impact: pad first. This just skids off the deck in line with middle and raps the front pad before FB managed a tickle, pressing forward. The tracker shows that it would have gone onto hit the leg stump. Umpire Llong's decision is vindicated. SA falling away 221/5
    44.3 tossed on leg, Parnell steps out and has an almighty swing at it, only to toe-end a catch to long-on. Marsh completes a shoulder-high catch. Zampa has his third wicket 239/8
    43.2 the off stump is sent cartwheeling. Nails it full and finds some awayswing. Enough to beat the outside edge of this lazy poke and take out the off stump. Abbott was left squared up 237/7
    45.1 Maxi takes a screamer at backward point. Plucks it out of thin air. Angled in full and tails away late outside off at 146ks to mess with the drive. He slices it in the air. Maxi leaps and stretches his right hand over his head. He comes out with the ball in one hand. One-handed stunner! The timing of the jump was impressive 240/9

    47.4 Australia win! back of a length and angled in, helped down to deep fine leg. They aim for the second. There is a direct hit at the non-striker's end from wicketkeeper Wade after collecting the throw from Khawaja in the deep. Redemption for the missed stumping? Tahir's bat is in the air as the bails get dislodged. All over 252/10
