    14.2 that's a great catch in the deep from McLaren and the stand is broken! Warner pulled the short ball in the air again, McLaren ran to his left from square leg but the ball was dipping on him and he made sure he swooped down with a dive to get his hands under the ball comfortably to complete the catch 94/1
    14.4 oh another, Philander gets Finch too! He moved the delivery away from Finch from outside off, the batsman pushed at it away from the body and the ball did enough to take an edge for an easy catch for de Kock 94/2
    25.3 a catch has been taken - finally! Watson swept the full delivery on the pads to short fine leg and Morkel did well to get low and get his hands under the ball just in time 130/4
    20.4 there you go - Steyn gets Clarke's wicket! Steyn banged in a short ball around off, Clarke took a step towards off and pulled but didn't time it properly and the ball ballooned off the glove towards de Kock. You won't see an easier catch than that 112/3
    43.2 another one goes high in the air, Faf is chasing this time and he's running back a long way from mid-off and completes an outstanding catch over his head, while falling down. It wasn't full but Bailey lofted it again, but couldn't clear the fielder this time 236/6
    29.3 that's gone through, what a delivery from Philander! It pitched outside off and seamed in a bit, Marsh looked to guide it on the off side but left a big gap between bat and pad and the ball sneaked through that to make the bails fly! 144/5
    45.4 outside the off stump, Wade makes room to slice the ball from outside off but finds a fielder in the deep, as Rossow ran in from sweeper cover. He's a sub for Behardien 256/7
    47.5 it's full this time and it's worked, taken at mid-off! Maxwell made room, got it full and wanted to clear mid-off with a lofted drive but Faf did well to dive forward and to his left for a good low catch. They are checking with the third umpire if it was taken cleanly, it has. And a part of Morkel's heel was marginally inside the crease or it would have been a no ball 276/8

    4.3 that's an unusual shot from Amla and he's fallen to MJ too! It was slightly back of length and close to off, Amla made room and stayed low to cut it fine, maybe towards third man, but only found a thick outside edge and Wade pouched another catch. Openers back in the pavilion 18/2
    2.4 145kph, edged and that's gone, MJ strikes! It was on back of length outside off, QDK only pushed at it away from the body without any footwork, the ball wasn't close to him and and the outside edge went for an easy catch to the keeper 6/1
    15.5 not this time, he's caught by the same fielder! Another short ball it was, Faf moved towards the off stump and pulled, but straight to Marsh at fine leg 76/4
    11.2 three down, SA! Short ball outside off, Behardien pulled it but didn't middle it, looked like it took a chunk of the top of the bat and went high towards deep midwicket where Finch ran to his left to pouch it 53/3
    39.5 oh, there's a run out and AB's gone! Steyn defended the short ball on the off side towards point, he took a step out but then said no for the single. It's too late because AB is already halfway down the track, Steven Smith (in for Clarke) runs from point, picks the ball and sends in the underarm throw at the non-striker's end, AB is well outside the crease. Big Blow for SA 215/8
    36.1 the bowling change as done it, Miller is gone and this strong stand is broken! the length delivery was angled in towards the pads, Miller looked to flick it towards cow corner but played the shot early and even though he looked towards wide long on, the ball went straight to mid on. Marsh takes a few steps back to complete the catch and 126-run stand is broken 202/5
    36.3 stifled appeal for caught behind as it was another bouncer! McLaren took evasive action while trying to defend it as the ball angled in, and Bailey reviews it. The third umpire says: 'Looks like it has come off the shoulder, can we zoom in please.' Another angle shows there might be a glove, third umpire wants to see the Hotspot and the crowd erupts seeing it on the big screen. Third umpire says there's glove on it, confirmed by Hotspot and he conveys it to the on-field umpire. McLaren gone for a duck 202/6
    37.6 pushes outside off again, they all go up for the caught behind appeal, but the umpire says no! Bailey reviews it again! Third umpire first asks for the off side HotSpot. nothing there. Now comes the Snicko, which shows the ball got something when it went past the bat. Third umpire to on-field umpire: there was a bat, reverse your decision to out 207/7
    41.4 one more! Steyn makes room to cut the incoming delivery on the off side, but it comes in too sharply after bouncing and takes a thin outside edge as Wade dives to his left to catch it with both hands 222/9
    not out
    48.1 the last wicket has fallen, he came down the track and lofted the fullish delivery straight down to long-off where Warner took the catch 268/10
