Phehlukwayo to Mustafizur Rahman, OUT, bowled. Goes full and straight, Mustafizur looks to swiped it over midwicket and misses. Leg stump thumped comprehensively

Mustafizur Rahman b Phehlukwayo 7 (19m 15b 0x4 1x6) SR: 46.66

Rabada to Rubel Hossain, OUT, yorker at middle stump and eventually one would sneak through. Smashes the stumps as he looks to slice it. That's ten wickets in the match for Rabada

Rubel Hossain b Rabada 7 (12m 8b 1x4 0x6) SR: 87.50

Rabada to Taijul Islam, OUT, leg stump out of the floor and out for a spin! Back of a length outside off stump, stabs at it away from the body, half looking to get out of the line. Big inside edge onto leg stump

Taijul Islam b Rabada 2 (17m 9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 22.22

Phehlukwayo to Sabbir Rahman, OUT, taken at second slip. Good, disciplined bowling. Back of a length in the corridor, late movement away and he pokes at it. Nice healthy edge, a bit of a stretch for Faf at slip, but all too easy in the end

Sabbir Rahman c du Plessis b Phehlukwayo 4 (20m 12b 1x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

Rabada to Mahmudullah, OUT, big dive to the left from Elgar at gully and that is Rabada's 100th Test wicket. Back of a length and wide outside off. It rises off the pitch as he shapes to drive it off the back foot and in the end he's forced to reach out with hard hands. Slices it and Elgar gets both hands as he flies to the left

Mahmudullah c Elgar b Rabada 43 (88m 59b 7x4 1x6) SR: 72.88

Phehlukwayo to Liton Das, OUT, shoulders arms and loses off stump. He took it away from the corridor for quite a while and Liton was happy to leave. But this one is angled in and hits the top of off stump. Well set up from the seamer

Liton Das b Phehlukwayo 18 (44m 25b 4x4 0x6) SR: 72.00

Parnell to Mushfiqur Rahim, OUT, error in judgement from Mushfiqur. Lets one go but has worn it on the pad. Top delivery from Parnell, though. Mushfiqur wasn't entirely wrong in letting it go. Like the previous deliveries, this one's angled across. Pitches on a length around middle and leg. Mushfiqur plants the front foot across and lifts his bat but the ball nips in ever-so-slightly very late to hit the pad. Mushfiqur opts for a review. Replays show that the impact is in line and the ball would have just about clipped off stump so the umpire's call remains

Mushfiqur Rahim lbw b Parnell 26 (78m 45b 3x4 0x6) SR: 57.77

Olivier to Imrul Kayes, OUT, has he been strangled down the leg side? De Kock goes up as do the rest of South Africa and the umpire upholds their appeal. Short of a length, looks for a tuck off the hips but Kayes gets an edge through to the keeper

Imrul Kayes c †de Kock b Olivier 32 (87m 53b 5x4 1x6) SR: 60.37

Rabada to Mominul Haque, OUT, holes out to deep square leg. Probably instinct to go after the short one after copping one on the helmet. This cramps him at chest height and he swipes it straight to the fielder who is 15 yards in from the boundary

Mominul Haque c Maharaj b Rabada 11 (23m 13b 1x4 0x6) SR: 84.61

Rabada to Soumya Sarkar, OUT, taken at second slip. It's that shot again. That unambitious prod outside off stump, the nervous response on the front foot after all the anxiety on the back. This one is good length, outside off stump, and he's playing away from the body with no feet. Faf falls to his right and snaps it in front of first slip

Soumya Sarkar c du Plessis b Rabada 3 (20m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 37.50
