View dismissal RR Rossouw c Benn b Taylor 128 174 115 11 2 111.30
38.3 80.6 mph, half-volley on off stump and this is chipped straight to mid-off! A wicket finally falls, not sure what Rossouw was trying to do, didn't go hell for leather to get it over the infield, almost just stroked it and it flew at waist height to the fielder for an easy catch, so the record stand ends but what a knock from Rossouw 247/1
View dismissal AB de Villiers*† c Carter b Russell 149 59 44 9 16 338.63
49.4 fuller length, smashed over the off side but straight to deep cover! Finally de Villiers finds the fielder but there was no luck in this absolutely outrageous innings. Couldn't find the gap this time, it was a firm strike but straight to the fielder. The record-breaker departs 439/2

View dismissal DR Smith c Duminy b Behardien 64 100 65 9 1 98.46
21.2 70.8 mph, similar delivery, this time tried to be swung down the ground and doesn't time it, tough chance for long-off running to his right but takes the catch. Makes it look easy in the end. The medium pace was too tempting for Smith and he miscued the straight lofted drive and no amount of thin air was taking that for six 122/3
View dismissal CH Gayle c Behardien b Morkel 19 24 13 2 1 146.15
4.5 90.8 mph, that's the end of that! Keeping it short of a length has done the trick, Gayle got too far underneath the shot as he tried to pull over deep midwicket, but it still took a very well judged catch from Behardien in the deep as he had to adjust at the last moment 36/1
View dismissal LR Johnson lbw b Philander 1 24 15 0 0 6.66
9.5 82.9 mph, swings back into the left hander and looked pretty good! Johnson opts for the review, hoping it pitched outside leg. No-ball is fine. Struck on the knee roll. Pitches well inside the line, smashing middle and leg. Johnson completely worked over by Steyn and Philander. 63/2
View dismissal MN Samuels c Behardien b Philander 40 67 48 3 1 83.33
24.6 81.6 mph, full and wide, Samuels drives off balance and finds extra-cover! Who leaps above his head to take a smart catch. Samuels reaching out for this, got into a poor position to try and drive it away and found the fielder 148/4
View dismissal D Ramdin c du Plessis b Morkel 57 92 55 4 1 103.63
41.2 87.2 mph, heaved off a length from just outside off aiming leg side, sliced top edge out towards deep square where Faf du Plessis holds a fine catch. Difficult to judge that and he had to dive forward in the end but held on very well. Total miscue from the batsman, ran out of patience at this miserable situation 253/7
View dismissal JL Carter c sub (WD Parnell) b Steyn 40 54 39 3 1 102.56
36.6 86.1 mph, picks out mid on...Steyn deserved that. Regardless of the match situation he has charged in, this was a short one, close to the body, cramped Carter for room as he pulled and it carried low towards the edge of the circle 231/5
View dismissal AD Russell c du Plessis b Imran Tahir 0 3 1 0 0 0.00
37.2 57.2 mph, oh boy, not the highest quality piece of cricket you'll see! But they all count for Tahir. It was a huge long hop, Russell went for the pull and couldn't have picked out deep midwicket any better 232/6
