View dismissal RE Levi c NL McCullum b Hira 5 13 13 0 0 38.46
3.1 caught! tries to hoick it over midwicket, but the ball hits the inside half of the bat and goes tamely straight to square leg. Sorry Shaun 13/1
View dismissal H Davids c Neesham b McClenaghan 55 46 38 7 1 144.73
11.3 is that the catch of the century!! Davids made room and plays it in the air over cover. That looked like it was going for a boundary, till Neesham runs backward from mid-off and takes this diving full-length towards the boundary. He lands and skids a couple of metres towards the ropes, but stops himself in time. Neesham made it looked so easy...more than half of the 95% of the world would have not counted that as a chance 81/2
View dismissal F du Plessis* c Anderson b Bracewell 63 68 43 8 1 146.51
18.3 caught at cover! tries to flick it towards square leg and gets a leading edge that goes as high as the towers. The fielder at cover makes no mistake and Bracewell is on a hat-trick. Faf's amazing innings comes to an end. 160/4
View dismissal DA Miller c Hira b Bracewell 33 35 18 2 2 183.33
18.2 length ball outside off and Miller again times it sweetly but finds the fielder at the boundary. The fielder didn't have to move an inch. A little cameo comes to an end 160/3

18.5 caught at point! length ball outside off, Peterson tries to smash it to ..somewhere.. gives it an almighty hoick, the ball takes the top edge and goes high.. very high..and comes down to the fielder at point 161/5

9.5 caught at long-on! Nicol charges out to a tossed up delivery, but the ball was really slow and he doesn't get his timing right as he tries to scoop it over long-on. It goes straight to the fielder 76/1
