    2.4 Guptill goes, that one came back in and took Guptill by surprise, banged in short on the off and Guptill tried to sway out of the way but couldn't, played at it, it took the top of the bat and lobbed up towards point, comfortable catch and South Africa have struck early 0/1
    12.3 trapped in front, Morkel fired that one on a length on off and middle, Watling went across to flick it square, missed it completely and was rapped on the pads right in front, Watling has a word with his partner and decides not to review it, wise call, Morkel has picked up his 100th ODI wicket 32/2
    not out
    33.5 gone, he succeeded once in guiding a short ball over the keeper's head, he plays this one off the face as well but can't get it high enough, straight to Quinton de Kock 159/3
    36.5 bowled'im, yorker length and McCullum appeared to have made his mind up, came down the track and had another swing at that one, missed and was bowled 188/4
    39.4 Munro seemed to be over-eager during his short stay, still 11 overs left in the innings, slower one from Tsotso and Munro seemed to have made up his mind, tried to clear long-on but didn't pick the slower one, Colin Inrgram ran in from the deep and took a well-judged catch diving forward 201/5

    41.3 run-out, Williamson called out belatedly, yelled out 'No', but Neesham was more than halfway down the pitch there, rushed for the single, then sent back, the cramp is playing on his mind, Faf collected it from point and aimed at the non-striker's end, Tsotso got a hand to it on its way to the stumps, Neesham was short 211/7
    47.4 makes a bit of room and the bowler follows him, clips it uppishly and straight to midwicket where Tsotso takes it comfortably 245/8

    8.2 bowled'im, straight on middle, bowled at 125.3kmph, de Kock likes to turn the face and work it around, appeared to nip back just a bit and beats him to rock back the stumps 38/1
    30.2 run-out, Smith goes, short and wide and Ingram has played that shot well today, cuts it wide of short third, Franklin ran to his left, dragged it in, Smith attempted the third and was running to the striker's end but it was an excellent throw from Franklin in the deep, right over the stumps and McCullum broke them to find Smith well short 167/2

    44.2 taps that one in front of mid-on and races off for a single, an under-arm flick from the fielder there hits the stumps direct, Guptill's the man, Kleinveldt looks good to complete the single but his bat, just at the time he's trying to ground it into the crease, gets stuck in the ground and drops off his hand, a direct hit and he is caught short, another run-out 216/7
    46.2 almost done now, short of a length and he mistimes when trying to clear extra cover, Nathan McCullum moves to his right from there, dives and holds on to a good catch 232/9
