Morkel to TLW Cooper, FOUR runs, bisected that gap really well! Tom Cooper gets a low full toss on the pads which he flicks very well with his wrists, wide long-on and deep midwicket were completely defeated

Duminy to Barresi, SIX runs, Going, going....! Tossed up and Barresi gets on his knee and plays the slog, gets a lot of miles on that shot and it's sailing over deep midwicket

Duminy to Barresi, FOUR runs, That was clever! Duminy fires that one flat from round the wicket, Barresi got in position quickly for the reverse sweep and neatly paddled that wide of short third man

Tsotsobe to Myburgh, SIX runs, high and just over the rope! This was a fuller one outside off, Myburgh fetches that and manages to slog him across the line, it was miles up in the air but had enough to clear the rope, Morkel could only watch

4
Tsotsobe to Myburgh, FOUR runs, that's exactly what he was trying to do! This was short and wide outside off, the height of the ball was good enough for him to slam that over point, forget about chasing it
2.6
4
Tsotsobe to Myburgh, FOUR runs, swatted over mid-off but not really in control, he made room and smacked it just over mid-off's reach (Steyn), more like a tennis forehand
2.4

Tsotsobe to Myburgh, SIX runs, Boy did he time that! This was pitched up on the pads, Myburgh stayed at the crease and nonchalantly swung that over fine leg, went quite a few rows back

Tsotsobe to Myburgh, FOUR runs, Good start this is for Netherlands! This was drifting on the pads, fine leg was up, Myburgh didn't try to hit it too hard and clipped it to long leg
