4.5

Mohammad Nabi to de Villiers, no run, lovely bowling, held its line just outside off stump, and zipped past the edge. No spin on that one

4.6

Mohammad Nabi to de Villiers, 1 run, tidy finish to a tidy over. The brake has duly been applied

South Africa 47/2   AB de Villiers 1* (2b)

5.1

Samiullah Shenwari to de Villiers, 1 run, good length to start things off, clipped to long-on

5.3

Samiullah Shenwari to de Villiers, no run, saw de Villiers coming and fired in a shorter, quicker ball. Canny bowling

5.4

Samiullah Shenwari to de Villiers, no run, a touch wider, and flailed to point

5.5

Samiullah Shenwari to de Villiers, no run, pushed out to cover, excellent rhythm so far

5.6

Samiullah Shenwari to de Villiers, no run, turn and bounce, the keeper takes with a leap, and that's an excellent over. Two good overs in a row, and Afghanistan have exerted a small measure of control as the Powerplay ends

South Africa 49/2   AB de Villiers 2* (7b)

6.2

Mohammad Nabi to de Villiers, 1 run, wider outside off, and an excellent pouncing stop at point from Hamid

8.1

Nawroz Mangal to de Villiers, 1 run, down the track, and clipped to long-on

8.4

Nawroz Mangal to de Villiers, SIX, belted. High and handsome, over long-off, and that rebounds off the window of the press box! Sizeable

8.5

Nawroz Mangal to de Villiers, 1 run, flicked out to midwicket

South Africa 70/2   AB de Villiers 12* (14b 1x6)

9.3

Samiullah Shenwari to de Villiers, no run, on the money again, keeping things under wraps

9.4

9.5

Samiullah Shenwari to de Villiers, no run, punched out to cover, tidy bowling again

9.6

Samiullah Shenwari to de Villiers, 1 run, that's an exceptional over, which finishes with a deflection to square leg. Nothing to work with whatsoever

South Africa 73/2   AB de Villiers 13* (18b 1x6)

10.1

Nawroz Mangal to de Villiers, no run, ooh, so near! A loose drive, and there was an audible snick on that, and sure enough, that was dropped by the keeper

10.2

Nawroz Mangal to de Villiers, FOUR, insult to injury. de Villiers dances down the track and swats a boundary though midwicket

10.3

Nawroz Mangal to de Villiers, OUT, and that's just reward for Afghanistan! De Villiers attacks once again, but is deceived in the flight, and that's an easy stumping as the third wicket falls

AB de Villiers st †Mohammad Shahzad b Nawroz Mangal 17 (17m 21b 1x4 1x6) SR: 80.95

South Africa 77/3   AB de Villiers 17 (21b 1x4 1x6)
