    9.1 juggling effort held onto at the second attempt by Viljoen at long-off! Short of a length cutter bowled well outside off on sixth stump, Viljoen nearly makes a mess of this in similar vein to Royal a short time ago. He was stationed quite wide at long-off and ranged left 10 yards to cut off this flat bat drive. But Viljoen nearly over runs the chance. His feet go out from under him as he tries to change course to move back right at the last moment and reaches out with his right hand at rib height as he's falling down to palm this up softly to himself, taking it on the rebound falling face first to the ground as the ball fortunately lodges in his right bicep. He made a simple chance look extremely theatrical with the misjudgement overrunning the ball initially but hung on in the end. 84/2
    4.4 bounced out! Viljoen bangs it in short on middle and off, Phillips went for an uppercut to third man but was cramped for room and had no chance to get under the ball, winds up gloving this through to Fletcher. Great line by Viljoen to deny him the width he desired to execute that shot. 48/1
    16.4 Royal's redemption at long-on! Full length ball on off stump, Smith creams this flat toward Royal at long-on. He ranges ten yards right for this chance coming at brisk pace and takes a tumbling catch at knee height. It was 7.5/10 on difficulty, the hardest of the four chances Smith offered this innings and much harder than the one Royal put down at deep square leg on 12. But he hangs on. 140/4
    16.3 they've finally held onto one! Slower ball full on sixth stump, Liton goes to slog this over long-on but instead skies this straight over the pitch. Williams calls everyone off and takes this mid-pitch with palms facing away from his face, fingers pointed to the sky. 140/3
    17.3 everything is sticking now in the last five overs. Bowls this full and very wide outside off angled across from over the stumps, Walton has to reach way away from his body trying to drive straight over long-off, instead skies this chance to Barnwell at cover sweeper, who runs in 15 yards from the rope and takes this at chest height with palms facing into his body. 145/5
    18.4 snags another one with a short ball! Goes full pace bouncing him on middle and off stump and the constant changes of pace have flustered the Tallawahs lineup from top to bottom. Griffith beaten for pace pulling and a thin top-edge is held by Fletcher leaping behind the stumps. 155/6
    19.6 attempted yorker given lbw! This one looked like it pitched well outside leg live and replays confirm this as it didn't even look like he was hit in line with the stumps either with contact made outside leg after clearing the front leg and hit on the back thigh flexing low. Fletcher showed zero interest behind the stumps but Santokie's appeal was enough to convince Leslie Reifer Jr. as a leg bye is denied off the final ball. 165/7

    3.5 floated full and wide on fifth stump, Fletcher teased into driving away from his body at a googly and edges this to Gayle's right at slip. He takes the catch at chest height moving right with his palms facing into his body sidestepping to soften the chance. 49/1
    6.6 six and out! Lewis tossed this with a bit more flight on the same line and length full on sixth stump, but Cornwall is out in front struggling to keep his hands back and slogs this high and deep toward Walton at wide long-on. He takes the catch initially over the shoulder with his back to the infield, momentum is going to take him over the rope so he coolly tosses this in the air and reestablishes himself back in the field of play to take his own alley-oop on the rebound. 79/2
    12.1 and we may have just seen that silliness come to fruition with a suicidal runout! Full ball on fourth stump pushed to Imran Khan at mid-off and he tries for a kamikaze run. Imran charges, fields and fires from 12 yards even with the stumps so only had one to aim at for the non-striker's end but Ingram was four yards short, umpire gave it out on the field without bothering to refer. 117/4
    7.1 golden duck for de Grandhomme! Two in two for the Tallawahs in the field! Back of a length pitching outside leg spinning across the stumps, de Grandhomme slogs this flat toward deep midwicket. Liton Das takes this casually on the jog running to his right at rib height. The Daren Sammy Stadium has gone quiet. 79/3
    14.3 bounced out! Bowled this short and way outside off, Viljoen tried to pull way across the line instead of the safer cut and a top edge swirls to deep fine leg. Springer gets his hands into an awkward position but is able to take the catch lodging the ball in his thigh after it slipped through his fingers. Nervy take. Tallawahs still fighting to stay in the match and the playoff hunt to boot. 130/5
    17.2 the persistence with the around the stumps angle finally pays off! Not the greatest ball in the world. Bowled short on leg stump spinning across, Barnwell goes back to swat this over long-on but no elevation. Smith is there 10 yards in from the rope to take this at waist height. Tallawahs are somehow still in this match. 144/6
