    2 sensational! Reeza Hendricks leaps backwards and to his left to take a skier at midwicket. Prolific batsman gets prolific batsman. Beuran Hendricks got another length ball to rise at QDK, who was looking to over the infield on the rise once more. But he wasn't looking to slice this. Instead, he wanted to slam it straight over the bowler. Lost his shape as it got big on him and he could only get the inside half of the bat on this. It hung up at midwicket and kept moving away with the wind, but Reeza kept his eyes on it 6/1
    5.4 chipped straight to mid-off. Looks for another flowing drive but this length ball sticks in the pitch outside off and he's through it early. Bat turns in the hand, mid-off lunges forward to hold on. Olivier screams in delight. 28/2
    13.3 trapped in front of middle stump and this is plumb. Good captaincy from Vilas. Rabada breaks the partnership. It's a slower ball floated full at middle stump. He walks across his stumps with the front foot stride and is beaten on the flick 73/5
    8.4 taken at cover. Rabada with a jog to his right from extra cover and a nonchalant take right in front of his chest. Length ball outside off, he opens up his body and slices from under it. Was looking to go leg side, but wasn't behind the line of it 42/3
    9.3 chops it on! It just isn't getting better for Blitz. The slowness of the pitch on display once again. Short and there for the cut, but Asif is through it too quickly. Thick inside edge thunders onto the stumps 48/4
    16.5 Pongolo with the acrobatics! Runs to his right at third man, takes a catch, loses balance and is falling backwards. But he's on his feet and he flicks it back in with the perfect weight before hopping back in and taking this with his feet in the air. That is Behardien, and that should be it for Blitz's hopes of an above par score. Short ball from Hendricks, in the corridor from around the wicket. Behardien looks for the upper cut but can't get it over the boundary. Two big wickets for Beuran today 91/7
    15.1 mix up and Phehlukwayo is gone! Oh that's poor from Blitz. Slow full toss outside off. Behardien has shaped for the ramp, but is forced to stab it into the midwicket region. It trickles slowly to Christian's right. Phehlukwayo is through to the other end quickly. Turns and sees if Behardien is looking for the second and trusts his first few strides as affirmation for that run. Except, Behardien stops and Phehlukwayo keeps on going. Throw comes in on the bounce and Vilas whips the bails off 81/6
