    5.5 that's gone up! The slower, short ball sticks in the pitch just enough. Tamim had committed on the front foot, then to attack the ball. Swings at it, gets a top edge and is caught easily at midwicket. 46/1
    6.5 does him in! Beautiful flight, pulls the batsman out if his crease. Soumya looks to lash it through the covers, and was already looking a little nervous. The ball goes on with the arm and past the outside edge. De Kock is too good of a keeper to miss out 55/2
    10.1 he's knocked Shakib over straight away! The left-hander was targeting the left-armer, races down looking for a six over long-on. Made decent connection, but Rossouw is so cool on the boundary. Leaps up just perfectly to take a very well judged catch. First that late blitz. now this catch. He's making some big-impact contributions 69/3
    11.5 wicket off a full toss and Mushy's gone! Leie's having a ball! He was looking to slice it away over short cover, didn't get the elevation he wants. Rossouw does though, good leaping catch. Bangladesh slipping away again 82/5
    11.4 slugged away to Miller at deep midwicket! Sabbir was reaching for the ball in front of him and outside off. Goes for a slog sweep. Connects decently, but he's not placed it. The fielder runs forward and dives to complete a pretty good catch 82/4
    12.2 eesh! just when I said he likes pressure. Jumps down the track to lift it in the air. Looks nothing more than a chip, which means that's a poor choice of shot with long-off around. Rossouw again, races in and takes an easy catch. 82/6
    19.1 his yorkers are quite something. Tinged in with deadly reverse swing. This one began outside off, then veers in looking for the base off stump. Rony realises the threat too late. Tries to save himself. But this is too good a ball to be denied a wicket 137/9
    14.4 lovely, well-judged catch from Wiese! Races quite a distance from long-on, has to worry about Leie in his eyeline as well because he was running in from deep midwicket. Makes sure to concentrate only on the ball though and takes it excellently. Another down the track swipe doesn't pay off for Bangladesh 103/7
    17.2 bang! Saw Mashrafe moving outside leg to scoop, Abbott makes that impossible with a leg-stump yorker that hits its mark 125/8
    not out
    19.2 off stump uprooted! South Africa win the series. Abbott has made a strong claim to be a permanent fixture in South Africa's attack. Mustafizur looks to slap it through the covers, too good for him 138/10
