0.2

Theron to Bula, 3 runs, slightly wide of off stump and Bula cuts away and cuts well, past Price at point who chases well enough to haul it down just short of the ropes

0.3

Theron to van der Dussen, no run

0.4

Theron to van der Dussen, no run, much better line, van der Dussen plays at it and it whistles past the outside edge

0.5

0.6

Theron to van der Dussen, no run

1.3

Dolley to van der Dussen, 2 runs, pushed wide of mid on and good running gets them a couple

2.2

Theron to Bula, no run, full and driven, but straight to Ackermann at mid-off

2.4

Theron to Bula, FOUR, full and little wide of offstump, Bula lofts it confidently to the midwicket boundary

2.5

Theron to Bula, OUT, Theron slows it and Bula is through his shot - another big one - far too early. He skies it and Smuts, running in from cover, takes a good catch

WJ Lubbe    2* (3b)      J Theron    2-0-12-1

HE van der Dussen    12* (16b 1x4)      BM Dolley    2-0-10-0

5.1

5.2

Gidana to Lubbe, 1 wide, slipping down the leg

5.2

Gidana to Lubbe, 1 run, a little bit wide and Lubbe cuts, immediately setting off for a single. Backward point puts in a diving save and there is a moment's hesitation from the batsman, but ultimately only a moment and they complete the single

5.3

Gidana to van der Dussen, no run, van der Dussen plays forward and there is a bit of a bat-pad sound. Stifled noise of frustration from Gidana

5.5

Gidana to Lubbe, 1 run, pushed through the covers

5.6

HE van der Dussen    14* (19b 1x4)      S Gidana    1-0-5-0

7.1

Gidana to van der Dussen, no run

7.2

Gidana to van der Dussen, 1 run, just wide of off, but not wide enough nor short enough for the cut shot van der Dussen intended. It goes straight to ground and they take a single

7.3

Gidana to Lubbe, no run

7.4

7.5

Gidana to Lubbe, no run

7.6

Gidana to Lubbe, 2 runs, a bit short and Lubbe waits on it, playing quite late and guiding it through the covers. Deep point runs up the boundary to collect

8.1

Smuts to van der Dussen, 1 run, played onto the leg side

8.2

8.3

Smuts to Lubbe, no run

8.4

Smuts to Lubbe, 1 run, that one sat up a bit and Lubbe lofts it into the air. It looked as if he wasn't completely committed to the shot and it won't carry to the boundary. One bounce to the man at deep midwicket

8.5

Smuts to van der Dussen, 1 run, pushed through the covers

8.6

Smuts to Lubbe, 1 run, driven straight and the strike is retained

HE van der Dussen    25* (27b 1x4 1x6)      S Gidana    2-0-8-0

9.1

Gidana to Lubbe, 1 run, waits for it and, already in the motion to run a single, taps it onto the leg side

9.2

Gidana to van der Dussen, 1 run, full and drives it over the vacant mid-on position. No danger of being caught and long-on runs in to collect

9.3

Gidana to Lubbe, no run, a play and a miss

9.4

Gidana to Lubbe, 3 runs, driven through the covers. Mid-on runs and fields, but can't get more than a finger to it. It's well-timed and long-off has to come in from the boundary to collect. The throw is excellent, straight onto the stumps, but the batsmen are safely home

9.5

Gidana to van der Dussen, 1 run, pushed onto the leg side

9.6

Gidana to Lubbe, 1 leg bye

End of over 10 (7 runs) North West 62/1

10.2

Smuts to Lubbe, OUT, short and Lubbe attempts to pick it up, but he doesn't catch all of it. It goes straight to Ackermann at midwicket

WJ Lubbe c Ackermann b Smuts 23 (32m 26b 1x4 0x6) SR: 88.46

11.4

Dolley to Kgamadi, no run

11.5

Dolley to Kgamadi, OUT, a reverse-sweep, perhaps unwarranted as Kgamadi had faced all of three deliveries prior to this, that loops to Magala at short fine leg. He takes a good diving catch

12.1

Meyer to van der Dussen, 1 run, a looping full-toss that van der Dussen obviously didn't expect and as a result, missed out on. He just plays it through the offside for a single

12.2

Meyer to Pretorius, no run, much better line this time, Pretorius unable to make a connection

D Pretorius    3* (8b)      BM Dolley    4-0-13-2
NJ van den Bergh    1* (2b)      L Meyer    1-0-5-0

14.1

Meyer to van den Bergh, 1 run, full on the pads and for a new batsman, it's the kind of delivery you want to face. Easily played to deep square leg

14.2

Meyer to Pretorius, 1 run, full toss, Pretorius is forward but his feet aren't moving and he falls over slightly as he plays this to mid-off. He still manages a single

D Pretorius    5* (10b)      L Meyer    2-0-8-0

16.1

Theron to Pretorius, 1 run, full and driven, there is protection at long-on and they briefly contemplate two, but decide against it

16.2

Theron to van den Bergh, 1 leg bye, full and wraps van den Bergh on the pads, but it hits him out of line and Theron doesn't bother appealing. The ball deflects towards cover and they take a leg bye

16.3

Theron to Pretorius, 1 wide, wide outside off stump, too wide and the batsman leaves it alone

16.3

NJ van den Bergh    15* (15b 1x4 1x6)      J Theron    3-0-25-1

18.2

Theron to Klein, no run, close on the body, passing between Klein and his angled bat

Theron to van den Bergh, no run

18.5

Theron to van den Bergh, 1 wide, full and just slipping down leg

18.5

Theron to van den Bergh, no run, yorker length, no foot movement from van den Bergh and it passes through low and close to off-stump

18.6

Theron to van den Bergh, (no ball) 1 run, Theron oversteps and the new batsman is going to be allowed a free shotmaking pass

18.6

Theron to Klein, 1 bye, Klein is clean bowled, good yorker, but obviously it was a free hit so there is no joy for the bowler. They run a bye, much to Dyili's chagrin

End of over 19 (5 runs) North West 111/7
D Klein    1* (4b)      J Theron    4-0-29-1
NJ van den Bergh    18* (21b 1x4 1x6)      L Meyer    3-0-14-2

Meyer to Klein, 1 run

19.2

Meyer to van den Bergh, no run

19.3

Meyer to van den Bergh, 1 run, a bouncer, appeared to be one of the slower-ball variety and it sits up. Van den Bergh doesn't play with much commitment, merely pokes at it and takes a single
