Nathan Coulter-Nile403629.0093210
4.1 to Q de Kock, and strikes! Sliced down to third man...full outside off, de Kock swinging with all his power behind it, the face opens and the ball flies in the air towards Hastings at third man who takes a smart, low catch. 47/1
14.4 to RR Rossouw, uses his feet, it's a back of a length ball, and he carves it down to long-off...his painful stay is over. A dismissal that won't hurt South Africa, really. 121/3
John Hastings302809.3372200
Shane Watson2022111.0032110
7.3 to F du Plessis, excellent catch at short midwicket! A slower ball, du Plessis is early on his shot, and spoons a catch low into the leg side where Faulkner does well to dive forward. 74/2
James Faulkner4042110.5064200
19.4 to DA Miller, drives a low full toss to cover on the edge of the circle...useful innings from Miller. 171/4

Dale Steyn403007.50124100
Kagiso Rabada403819.5082300
18.3 to SPD Smith, well, he's struck...a low full toss outside off which Smith tries to scoop into the leg side and can only get a top edge which loops to de Kock as he runs from behind the stumps. 169/4
Kyle Abbott3.203209.6054020
Imran Tahir403829.5060300
8.2 to SR Watson, held this time! Watch a catch. Du Plessis holds on. Almost a carbon-copy of the previous ball, Watson reaching for a wide delivery and lofting it very high into the off side. Du Plessis again runs back from cover and this time pulls out a successful dive to hold on. 76/1
8.5 to UT Khawaja, and another! Tahir's in the game. Khawaja goes for the sweep, doesn't keep the ball down and it's snaffled at deep square-leg. 78/2
