View dismissal EM Moore c †Kotze b Viret 5 41 27 0 0 18.51
9.5 in the channel outside off, Moore hangs his bat out to dry and the ball takes a thickish edge on its way through to a diving Kotze behind the stumps 10/2

View dismissal MG Erasmus b Bell 4 47 32 0 0 12.50

View dismissal S Groenewald c Ackermann b Bell 34 45 36 5 0 94.44
57.6 attempted drive, edged straight to Ackermann at first slip. His reaction is more one of frustration than celebration after six dropped catches this morning 201/8
View dismissal BM Scholtz c Bell b Bokako 13 35 34 2 0 38.23
66.2 another leading edge, sky high, right down mid on's throat. Again its Bell and this time he makes no mistake. He hangs on and endures a little ribbing from his teammates, including an exagerratedly late celebration from the man at point 241/9
