1 set him up for this virtually. Pitches one on a good length on the middle stump and struck on the pads as he finds his way back to the pavilion 0/1
    6 outside the off stump, by the time the ball is upto the batsman, Amini is into the shot and gets the outside edge through to gully, but Engelbretcht like a bird in full flight has a go at it and pulls off a stunning catch 17/3
    3.5 outside the off stump and coming in a touch. Ura goes onto the back foot and pokes at it and ends up getting an outside edge to first slip, where Smuts takes the catch 11/2
    26.3 short on the off stump, Heni moves back and tries to dispatch it over square leg but ends up getting a top edge. Malan pouches it easily 81/5
    8.3 on the middle stump and one of those balls which carries the "You-Miss-I-Hit"tag. Dikana tries to flick and plays all over it as his stumps are castled 25/4
    36.3 outside the off stump, turning in. Amini goes for the jugular and ends up getting a edge onto the shot as it goes to short third man, where Parnell does the rest 102/7
    32.2 outside the off stump, holds it back a litle. Vala lobs it back to Vandiar who takes it 92/6
    38.4 Diho tries to go for one shot too much and is castled 103/9
    37.5 Finally perseverence pays for Arnold as the yorker that he has been trying for comes through and Mado ends up getting a nick to give Moshele a regulation catch 103/8
    45 Nou looks to go over the top and ends up holing out to Pienaar at mid off 125/10
