Hendricks to van der Gugten, OUT, South Africa get over the line with the skin of their teeth! Hendricks comes round the wicket and fires in a short ball, van der Gugten arches backwards and risky playing at it, looks to carve this down to third man but gets a thin edge, de Kock knows it and Steve Davis' finger was up quickly

T van der Gugten c †de Kock b Hendricks 8 (13m 12b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

Tsotsobe to Mudassar Bukhari, OUT, was that really necessary! The batsman needn't have looked to go over the top with the fielder pushed back, this was short and he was down the track and looked to slap this one over long-on, miscued and Miller took it easily

Mudassar Bukhari c Miller b Tsotsobe 11 (23m 12b 1x4 0x6) SR: 91.66

Tsotsobe to Mudassar Bukhari, 1 run, OUT, the pressure getting to the Netherlands again! Bukhari pulled this one to wide long-on, van Beek wanted the second but bukhari wasn't interested, van Beek was more than half way down the track but it was too late

LV van Beek run out (Miller/†de Kock) 1 (12m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 20.00

Imran Tahir to Seelaar, OUT, Netherlands are starting to crumble under pressure here! Tahir tosses it up, Seelar decides that going over the top is the only way to go, gets on his knee and looks to clear long-on, can't clear Duminy

PM Seelaar c Duminy b Imran Tahir 2 (1m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Imran Tahir to TLW Cooper, OUT, Tahir hits the timber and SA are right back in this! Tom Cooper looked to pull this one, it was a quicker delivery, looked like it went between his legs, swing and a miss and Tahir sets off for his celebratory run

TLW Cooper b Imran Tahir 16 (23m 13b 2x4 0x6) SR: 123.07

Steyn to BN Cooper, OUT, the bouncer gets him this time! He may have survived the previous ball but Steyn had another one coming, really quick for the left-handed Ben, he bent and looked to evade it but the ball took the glove and lobbed up, de Kock jogged to his right and took it

BN Cooper c †de Kock b Steyn 5 (12m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 83.33

Imran Tahir to Borren, OUT, Tahir strikes back after getting slammed for six! Not the smartest shot you would say, a flatter delivery and Borren moved tor far across the stumps to sweep and exposed all three stumps, the ball strikes the pads plumb in front, no doubts about this one

PW Borren lbw b Imran Tahir 13 (11m 10b 1x4 1x6) SR: 130.00

Imran Tahir to Barresi, OUT, another one down and SA are pumped up! This was fired through much quicker and flatter from Tahir, Barresi was hit low on the pads as he tried to flick it away, Hawkeye however shows that missing the leg stump, a frustrated Barresi walks off

W Barresi lbw b Imran Tahir 14 (13m 9b 1x4 1x6) SR: 155.55

Duminy to Myburgh, OUT, will this be a game-changer? Tossed up on middle and leg and that drew Myburgh to come down the track, he played all around it, got an inside edge to the stumps and the bat slipped out of his hand as well

SJ Myburgh b Duminy 51 (34m 28b 8x4 2x6) SR: 182.14

Steyn to Swart, OUT, Terrific catch by the captain himself! Swart made room to a shorter one and looked to clear mid-off, ended up slapping it and Faf du Plessis had to cover a lot of ground to his right at mid-off, timed his dive well and took the catch

MR Swart c du Plessis b Steyn 8 (25m 12b 1x4 0x6) SR: 66.66
