    0.3 short and wide, gone! Big wicket here for South Africa A. A tad wide outside off on a good length, and Head goes for the cut but the extra bounce takes the edge, which is gratefully accepted by Dane Vilas behind the stumps. Great start for South Africa A. 0/1
    7.3 slower ball and gone this time! Soft dismissal. Burns will be distraught, he has thrown away a big score. Length delivery outside off, and Burns plays an expansive drive on the up. But all he can do is spoon it in the air towards cover point who takes a low, tumbling catch. Not a no ball this time. 52/2
    33.2 taken! Elgar fired this flat, across the left-hander, and he went on the back foot to dab to third man, the ball came into him and he ended up playing it far too fine for his own good, kissed the face of his bat and into the keeper's gloves. Positioned himself very well, did Vilas 202/5
    18.2 shortish ball on middle stump, and it consumes Lynn, who backs away to make swinging room to hit the ball over mid-on. It wasn't nearly as short as Lynn might have anticipated, and the ball hurries onto him and he ends up spooning it in the air, easy catch for mid-on 110/3
    22.5 bowled him! It's the slower offcutter pitching on off stump, and Ferguson plays all around it, looking to work it leg-side, and the ball beats his inside edge and crashes into middle stump 134/4
    47 another terrific catch from de Bruyn. Two possible match-changing catches from de Bruyn. Handscomb waits for the slower offcutter to come to him before opening the face of the bat to third man. De Bruyn dives in front of him and takes a stunning one-handed catch. Stunning stuff 272/9

    38.1 gone, bowled around his legs. Agar gets down to sweep very early but the ball is pushed through quick and full. It is too late to improvise for Agar and goes through with the shot but misses though. The stumps are rattled and Aus are left requiring a consolidation period. 217/6
    44.4 the slower ball does the trick this time. Gets the wicket. Very slow outside off, Abbott waits for it and waits for it some more before he is early on the lob to third man. Ends up chipping it to Vilas for a soft wicket 257/7
    45.1 unless the fielders can help it. What a take. Absolutely terrific from de Bruyn. Wicket to the fielder there. Slower ball on middle, and clipped in the air in the gap at midwicket. At least, that is what NCN would have thought. De Bruyn sprints across to his right from long-on and takes an absolute stunner, low from the ground too. Wow. 260/8
    47.2 de Bruyn will not mess this one up. He takes another. And Aus A are all out, failing to play 16 deliveries. Full delivery outside off stump, Boyce attemps the wild hoick over long-on but ends up skying the ball high in the air towards mid-on. De Bruyn settles under it and takes a good, safe catch - by no means, easy. 272/10

    11.5 full on off stump, and that's another direct hit from Head. This time he's got his man. Extremely risky single, Reeza poked it firmly and straight to the man at mid-on and took off immediately. Head took aim, hit the stumps for the second time in four balls, and Reeza was a good three feet from the crease. Had to run around the bowler too, and that was a factor as well 37/3
    3.5 gone! Coulter-Nile bends his back and digs it in short. Delport is late on the pull, and the ball hits him high on the bat and pops up to square leg 18/1
    4 bowled him, first ball. Coulter-Nile is on a roll here. Excellent delivery, on a good length on off stump. Curves away in the air and then seams back in, just a touch. Pokes at it with no footwork, inside edges into his stumps 18/2
    30.2 massive wicket in the game! Elgar, what have you done? Full outside off, Elgar sits on one knee and slog-sweeps in the air to deep midwicket. Straight down his throat. A huge wicket which could directly have a result in South Africa A's tournament. 142/5
    19.5 short and wide, and that is an excellent catch on the third man boundary. Went for the uppercut, hit it well, and Boyce backtracked, took it at chest height, just in front of the rope. Realised the momentum was taking him beyond the rope, so he flicked the ball in the air, crossed over the rope, crossed back in, and caught it again 84/4

    37.1 all over. Goes for a reverse-sweep off a full ball on leg stump, and he ends up getting bowled around his legs 164/10
    31.3 gone. Another big wicket for Australia A. Vilas gets down early to paddle-sweep, not a bad choice of shot though. He just missed the fuller length delivery on leg stump. 145/6
    32 gone, another wicket. Great delivery this time though. Bowls it full on off stump, Maharaj hands back to one which he should have been fuller to. The extravagant legspinner takes the outside edge which is snaffled up at slip 147/7
    33 another soft dismissal! Soft batting from SA. Viljoen comes forward to try to sweep but gets a thin edge, which carries comfortably to slip. Not the shot Viljoen should have played with the ball so wide outside off. He's gone though. And SA A are in big trouble now. 148/8
    36.5 tossed up, goes for the sweep from wide outside off, ends up top-edging it high in the air, easy pouch for the backward square leg fielder 164/9
