Mills to Kallis, no run, starts out full outside off stump and the ball swings through the air, a good sign, and Kallis gets forward and leaves the ball be for the wicketkeeper


Mills to Kallis, no run, and again a little bit of movement for Mills, pitches it up, and once more Kallis strides forward and shoulders arms ... its like day one of a Test in Napier


Mills to Kallis, 2 runs, now Kallis decides to use the thing in his hands and flashes at another full and swinging delivery and gets two down to Butler at third man, who fumbles and allows a second


Mills to Kallis, 1 run, better length, just holding it back, Kallis steers to backward point


Mills to Smith, no run, good stuff, hits a good length and shapes away from Smith, who feels for it and gets beaten by the good carry through to McGlashan ... Peter, that is, not our Andrew


Mills to Smith, 1 run, too full and Smith leans into a square-drive, but Guptill throws himself around at point and takes some pace off the ball, thats good work by the fielder

South Africa 4/0   KD Mills 1-0-4-0

Mills to Kallis, no run, pitches middle and leg, swings in, Kallis flicks to midwicket


Mills to Kallis, no run, makes some room to try and thrash the ball over point but Mills drops it short and wide and Kallis ends up flaying the bat at ball and connecting with nothing but air


Mills to Kallis, FOUR, fluent drive that, it was a half-volley, granted, but needed to be put away and Kallis played a thumping shot past extra cover for four, balance correct and all that jazz


Mills to Kallis, 1 run, back of a length outside off stump, Kallis sees the ball swing and then plays it late, running it down the ground to backward point, thats smart batting


Mills to Smith, 1 run, pitches outside leg stump and Smith works it past square leg


Mills to Kallis, SIX, miscued but still goes the distance! Kallis backs away and uses his feet to get some momentum going and connects well enough to thrash that over cover-point and thoughts it not timed perfectly he gets enough on it to dump it just over the ropes

South Africa 22/0   KD Mills 2-0-16-0

Mills to de Villiers, FOUR, confident shot! AB plays a spanking pull, off the front foot, in front of square as the bowler slightly errs in length, wasn't a bad ball though by any means


Mills to de Villiers, 1 run, fuller in length and he on-drives a single with ease


Mills to Duminy, 1 run, gets up and fishes at a shorter ball, inside-edging past leg stump


Mills to de Villiers, 2 runs, full on the toes and he clips it out to deep backward square leg


Mills to de Villiers, 1 run, nearly a yorker on middle and leg, makes room and drives to mid-off


Mills to Duminy, no run, swing and a miss, eyes shut, heaving across the line

South Africa 77/4   KD Mills 3-0-25-0

Mills to Morkel, 1 run, reaches out to drag a full delivery from outside off stump to midwicket


Mills to Duminy, 1 leg bye, full outside leg stump, no room to work with, Duminy swings and the ball raps his pads and rolls to the on side


Mills to Morkel, 1 run, low full toss outside off stump, it dips and Albie reaches out and opens the face to try and chop it to third man but the ball drops dead at his feet, he looks perplexed but Duminy is alert and beckons him on for the manic single


Mills to Duminy, SIX, super shot! Mills errs with a full toss and Duminy dumps that rows back over midwicket, all timing and placement, excellent work from him


Mills to Duminy, OUT, gone this time though! Mills gets his man with a straighter one on the stumps, almost a yorker but not quite, Duminy gets under it looking for elevation but can only chip it down to mid-on

JP Duminy c Broom b Mills 29 (35m 23b 1x4 2x6) SR: 126.08


Mills to Morkel, 1 run, good yorker outside off stump, Albie drives to mid-off for one
