TOTAL50 Ov (RR: 8.22, 212 Mins)411/4
Fall of wickets: 1-12 (Quinton de Kock, 2.3 ov), 2-259 (Faf du Plessis, 38.4 ov), 3-299 (Hashim Amla, 41.1 ov), 4-301 (AB de Villiers, 41.3 ov)
2.3 to Q de Kock, they have all gone up, it is not given out, and they review it. Mooney goes wide on the wicket, angles this across the body of de Kock, this one pitches leg, squares de Kock up, leaves him - there is seam movement apart from the angle - there is a soft sound as the ball passes the bat, and you can see a deflection too. A smidgeon on the snicko as the ball passes the outside edge. De Kock will be on his way. And yes, the decision has been overturned. 12/1
38.4 to F du Plessis, full toss and he is bowled. Actually more a yorker than a full toss. At least one double has been taken out of the equation. He is making room, KOB stays full and straight, it dips on him to land halfway between the crease and the stumps. He has missed this altogether. KOB gets into a shadow-boxing celebration with the disturbed stumps. A bit like footballers with the corner flag. 259/2
41.1 to HM Amla, there won't be a double today. Well bowled by McBrine. He holds this back, slow in the air, Amla charges down the wicket, is not quite to the pitch of the ball, and ends up lofting this to long-off where, some 200 runs after he first dropped Amla, Joyce completes the catch. 299/3
41.3 to AB de Villiers, McBrine has two in one over and has put an end to the possibility of the falling of a plethora of records. De Villiers looks for the reverse sweep from the leg-stump line, gets a top edge, and backward point runs back to take the catch. This is the first ball AB has failed to score off. 301/4

Fall of wickets: 1-17 (Paul Stirling, 2.5 ov), 2-21 (William Porterfield, 3.6 ov), 3-21 (Ed Joyce, 4.3 ov), 4-42 (Niall O'Brien, 8.4 ov), 5-48 (Gary Wilson, 10.2 ov), 6-129 (Andy Balbirnie, 25.5 ov), 7-150 (John Mooney, 30.2 ov), 8-167 (Kevin O'Brien, 35.1 ov), 9-200 (Max Sorensen, 42.6 ov), 10-210 (George Dockrell, 44.6 ov)
2.5 to PR Stirling, he has got him, yeah?. Stirling is almost walking, but Ranmore Martinesz has missed his second edge of the day. Short of a length, swinging away, Stirling is squared up, there is a sound as the ball passes the bat, there is defelction, and there is a register on the snicko. This has to be overturned. Fourth bad decision of the day - two each from both umpires. Three have been overturned. South Africa didn't review the fourth. 17/1
4.3 to EC Joyce, that's the old one-two. Bouncer has pushed Joyce back, and he bowls a full one at 146ks to follow it up. The bouncer has done it. Joyce stays back, the feet don't move, he plays away from the body, nowhere near the pitch of the ball, and edges it through to first slip. 21/3
3.6 to WTS Porterfield, gone, they have got Porterfield. Faf du Plessis is the man at short midwicket. A length ball, on the pads, and he has instinctively just flicked at it. This is dying on du Plessis, but he takes a smart low catch. 21/2
8.4 to NJ O'Brien, that's a great catch by Amla. Absolutely fantastic. O'Brien throws his bat at a wide length ball, gets a healthy edge towards first slip, de Kock goes for it, deflects it, Amla's view is blocked, and he has not even half a second to adjust. Actually he has got lucky. The deflection off de Kock's glove has settled in his armpit. De Kock's glove to Amla's left hand to his right armpit. 42/4
10.2 to GC Wilson, another wicket. They discuss reviewing this, but Wilson walks off without challenging Martinesz's decision. Wilson is crease-bound, almost expecting a short ball, the length ball nips back in and hits him on the knee roll. The line is perfect, the only question is the height. In the worst case, the Hawkeye might return umpire's call on this. That's what it does. 48/5
35.1 to KJ O'Brien, O'Brien misses out on a half-century. Abbott has four wickets now. Digs this one in short, from the sound the pull generates it seems he has smoked this, but it has hit him high on the bat and has found deep midwicket with precision. 167/8
25.5 to A Balbirnie, and he gets too adventurous. Drags this pull shot from well outside off and finds deep midwicket with perfection. Valiant effort, will do the net run rate a world of good. 129/6
42.6 to MC Sorensen, ouch. This is at his hip, Sorensen has nowhere to go, he looks away throws his hands in defence. Off the bat handle it goes for an easy catch to the keeper. 200/9
44.6 to GH Dockrell, finally it is over. He hits the top of off as Dockrell makes room to try to hit him over cover. Dockrell is expecting another ball in the ribs, but Morkel has gone straight and full. 210/10
30.2 to JF Mooney, and he has a wicket second ball. Short of a length, angling away, innocuous little delivery, Mooney looks to play a forceful shot, and ends up dragging it on. Is there anything AB can't do nowadays?. 150/7
