Butler to Smith, FOUR, offers some room outside off stump, allowing Smith free the arms and slice that over backward point, third man hustles but cannot cut it off


Butler to Smith, no run, still a tad wide and Smith, without much footwork, chases it in the air toward backward point where the ball drops just short of Nathan McCullum


Butler to Smith, 1 run, straighter ball and he works it across the stumps for a single


Butler to Kallis, no run, sharp movement back in, cuts back off a length and Kallis is cramped as he tries to run it down to third man, ends up taking it on the arm


Butler to Kallis, 1 leg bye, full down leg stump, Kallis cannot connect but gets a leg bye


Butler to Smith, 1 run, pitches it up outside off stump, Smith reaches out and drags the ball down just wide of mid-on for a single

South Africa 35/0   IG Butler 1-0-6-0

Butler to Smith, OUT, smart fielding at short midwicket! Butler drops it short of a length, it sits up and Smith short-arm-jabs it to the on side where Brendon McCullum intercepts and immediately releases and under-arm fling to the other end as Kallis is out of his crease, he has to turn back and stretch the bat out but McCullum finds his mark and Kallis is out by an inch. Very quick work from McCullum

JH Kallis run out 24 (36m 23b 2x4 1x6) SR: 104.34


Butler to Smith, no run, back of a length on the stumps and Smith works it to the fielder


Butler to Smith, 1 run, hits a length, angles away, Smith dabs it fine and Gibbs says come on


Butler to Gibbs, no run, beats him first ball, holding back the length and getting some lift, Gibbs stands his crease and feels for it and could have easily gotten an edge, McGlashan fumbles


Butler to Gibbs, no run, cuts through him again, pitching it up a fraction fuller and getting swing back in, Gibbs flirts and is beaten by the nip back in


Butler to Gibbs, no run, oh what an over, third ball in a row Butler beats Gibbs, who just isn't using his feet at all, with one thats even fuller and shaping back in gently

South Africa 50/1   IG Butler 2-0-7-0

Butler to Smith, no run, full toss outside off stump which he punches to cover


Butler to Smith, OUT, thats gone straight through Smith! Butler comes back and strikes immediately, pitching the ball up just outside leg stump and getting some shape, Smith plays all over the ball as he attempts to on-drive and middle and leg stumps are shattered

GC Smith b Butler 33 (55m 35b 4x4 0x6) SR: 94.28


Butler to Duminy, no run, now he holds back the length outside off stump and Duminy is beaten as he hops up and feels for that one


Butler to Duminy, no run, another dot ball, this time as Duminy pulls and misses, the ball was just not there for that shot and he connects with cold air


Butler to Duminy, 1 run, too full outside leg stump, though it swings late Duminy gets a single, just managing a wee bit of bat on ball and placing it wide of square leg


Butler to van der Merwe, no run, good ball, hits a good length, straightens, and he dabs it to point

South Africa 64/3   IG Butler 3-0-8-1

Butler to Duminy, 1 leg bye, full outside leg stump, Duminy makes room and flicks, the ball hits his pads and dribbles to the off side for a leg bye, again thats good bowling from Butler


Butler to Boucher, OUT, simple catch to short extra cover as Boucher reaches out and scoops a low full toss from outside off stump straight to the man on the circle

MV Boucher c BB McCullum b Butler 6 (9m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00


Butler to Duminy, 1 wide, bad ball, length ball but too wide down leg stump so thats wide


Butler to Duminy, 1 run, full toss again, down the pads, clipped to square leg for a single


Butler to Morkel, 2 runs, drags it short of a length outside off stump and Albie pulls it between midwicket and mid-on, a good shot but Taylor dives on the ropes and parries to Guptill, good work


Butler to Morkel, no run, fuller length, Albie inside-edges a drive to the on side, Butler himself slides and dives, Duminy sends Albie back and he makes it back as the bowler releases the ball


Butler to Morkel, 1 run, full on leg stump and all Albie can get is an inside edge to gully

South Africa 112/6   IG Butler 4-0-13-2
