    6.2 superb reactions from Cloete! Rickelton bent low to sweep, but the ball flicked his glove, ricocheted off Cloete's arm, and looped into the leg side. Cloete had a couple of metres to make, and had to dive at the last moment to catch it. Mendis strikes early! 54/1
    15 caught in the deep! Mendis invited Hendricks to hit over the off side with a loopy legbreak, but he had Sipamla perfectly positioned at a wide long off. The ball arced over the field, Sipamla jogging across and holding the catch with reverse-cupped hands 112/3
    13.1 edged, and caught behind! Van der Dussen tried to upset Sipamla's line again, faking a back away to leg, but the bowler aimed full and wide and he had to reach for his drive, edging it straight through to Cloete for a regulation catch. Pressure has brought a wicket 92/2
    15.1 Christian lofts to long off! Bosch was perhaps aiming for the yorker, and it wasn't quite pinpoint but Christian skewed his drive, de Bruyn trotting in from the ropes to hold a simple catch. Spartans have two in two! 112/4

    19.4 run out pushing for the second! Van Biljon falls after a dramatic cameo. He flapped the ball into the leg side, and Vilas wanted the second to get him back on strike, but the throw was on target and he's short despite a full dive 183/5

    2 yorked him! Cloete was given a proper working over by Rabada in that over, and this one went like a heat-seeking missile and shatters the stumps 12/1

    6.1 rapped on the pads off a full toss and given! floated up that off spinner too much, the batsman tried to flick it but didn't connect. Struck above the pads, a loud appeal and he's on his way. Hawekeye shows three reds on that 51/2
    6.2 two in two tossed up outside off and that spun sharply into the batsman. Pitched well outside off and takes out leg stump, sneaking in through bat and pad. That hit the rough actually and just spun a mile in 51/3
    12.4 caught at long-off He threatened to take the match away from Stars, but AB's fallen now. Full ball, he stepped away and carved it towards long-off. Didn't get the elevation and a grateful Rickelton accepts the catch 119/4
    16.2 Harmer continues to take wickets Went for the reverse sweep and was beaten. Another full toss, strikes him on the knee roll, and the umpire holds the appeal valid. Third wicket for Harmer, second off a full toss. And Stars back in it now 160/5
    17.3 the bowler has to wait only one ball after that missed chance. Full ball, carved to deep point, no attempt to keep it down. Straight down the throat of the fielder 171/6
