M Morkel to Sarwan, no run, Hello! Mr Sarwan welcome to Twenty20 says Van der Wath. he hurls across a sharp bouncer and Sarwan manages to fend it off towards point. Ungainly but he is still there.

Philander to Sarwan, no run, full, outside the off stump, he backs away to the leg side but can't put bat to the ball. It landed after it went past the off stump.


Philander to Sarwan, no run, Another dot ball. This is rare in this format. Yorker on the middle and off and Sarwan could just about jab it back down the track


Philander to Sarwan, 2 runs, full in length, driven towards long-off and Ramdin calls Sarwan over for the second run and they get there in the end. Just in time. It was refered upstairs, not out was the verdict


Philander to Sarwan, SIX, A one-handed flat six over point! Welcome to Twenty20! It was a low full toss, just outside the off stump, Sarwan backed away and took the bottom-hand off the handle in an effort to reach the delivery and ended up slicing it flat and fast over deep point. Awesome!


Philander to Sarwan, OUT, Gone now. Fullish, on the leg and middle, almost yorker length and Sarwan gets under the ball and hits it straight to long-on
