    2.1 pushes at that one, edged to 1st slip and WP are on their way too 2/1
    24.4 kept a bit low, he played off the back foot and got himself castled. Bothma now has 9 wickets in the match. 53/5
    7 hits him in front and he is sent on his way, lingers in the middle as if he wanted to call for a review, must have thought he hit it 14/2
    8.2 unlike his teammate, he tucks his bat under his arm as soon as the finger goes up. He was the top scorer in the first innings, and Gauteng are in trouble now 16/3
    21.1 pushes forward and hit low on the front pad 49/4

    34.2 one shot too many and now WP must be sniffing victory 93/6
    34.5 hits him low on the pad, even from side on that looked stone dead 93/7
    43.3 edged onto the pad and snapped up at short leg 118/8
    45.3 goes for th pull but he loops up a catch, Canning steps out from behind the stumps to take it 126/9
    46.5 struck on the pad and number 11 normally struggles to win the decision, a richly deserved 10 wicket haul for Bothma and WP keep a toe in the race to defend their title 127/10
