BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Matt Henry1023403.40422100
Trent Boult1006316.30307110
1.5 to Q de Kock, bowled him, stumps flying all over the place! He's been looking for that full one angling in towards leg stump all through the over, and he bowls another. De Kock leaves a bit of a hole in his attempted on-drive - the result of his front foot not really getting forward at all - and the ball simply bursts through. Judging by how the rest of the over's gone, a definite plan from Boult - something to do with de Kock's lack of feet movement early on, and maybe the angle that his bat comes down at, from around gully or thereabouts. 9/1
Lockie Ferguson1005935.90326130
13.6 to F du Plessis, Ferguson yorks du Plessis. How do you even play this? Ferguson follows the 149ks bouncer with a 148ks missile at the blockhole. The short ball and the bouncer pushed Faf back. This one clatters into off stump. Ferguson aces the 1-2. Just too quick for Faf. 59/2
44.5 to DA Miller, makes himself plenty of room and Ferguson bangs in a short ball, slanting away from Miller. The ball is rising steeply, and he's moving away from it's line, so he can't quite control the uppercut, ends up offering a catch to third man moving to his left. Good innings, though. He's given South Africa a bit of momentum. 208/5
46.3 to AL Phehlukwayo, gone. Mid-off was in the circle, and he gets a full-toss from Ferguson, but it's at an awkward height, about two-thirds of a stump high, and it's quick - 144kph - so he's denied swinging room. Goes hard at it, the ball comes off the bat with a dull clunk, and Williamson takes an easy chest-high catch at mid-off. 218/6
Colin de Grandhomme1003313.30361000
32.3 to AK Markram, Markram runs down the track to de Grandhomme and skews a catch to sweeper cover. Markram ventures down the pitch, de Grandhomme pulls his length back, and this nips away slightly outside off. Markam looks to swat it away over the leg side, but ends up splicing it to sweeper, where Munro runs in and snaffles it with a reverse-cup. 136/4
Mitchell Santner904515.00222100
27.4 to HM Amla, bowled him, that's slightly loose from Amla. Good ball from Santner, though, hits an excellent length and spins from middle stump to hit top of off. Amla, though, was trying to stay leg-side of the ball and play that with an open face, looking to dab into the point region, which is a risky shot if all you're looking for is a single. 111/3

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Kagiso Rabada1004214.20393110
2.1 to C Munro, Rabada has Munro caught and bowled. Banged in short from round the wicket, tucks up Munro for room, and rushes him for pace. Munro hops and inside-edges the ball onto his pad. The ball balloons in the air. Rabada runs in from his followthrough and gobbles it up to lift SA. 12/1
Lungi Ngidi1014714.70356020
47.1 to C de Grandhomme, South Africa finally hang onto a catch. Faf du Plessis gives SA hope. Oh man, what a game this is turning out to be! This is the slower one once again. Pitched up and outside off, right up the alley for de Grandhomme to muscle it into the stands. He only holes out to long-off. Is there another twist in this match?. 228/6
Chris Morris1004934.90346000
16.1 to LRPL Taylor, full, angling down leg, and Morris strikes in unlikely fashion! Looks to flick it away, but only manages a thin tickle through to de Kock. The luck's been on South Africa's side for the last couple of overs, and suddenly this is anyone's game!. 74/3
18.1 to TWM Latham, Morris is on fire! Latham's been very uncertain against his right-arm-over angle, and this one's just back of a length, pitches on leg stump and seams away slightly to kiss the outside edge as Latham looks to defend off the back foot. 80/4
32.2 to JDS Neesham, gone! Steered straight to the man at wide slip! Morris' over-the-wicket angle to the left-handers has picked up another wicket. Cross-seam, just short of a length, angling away from off stump, and Neesham leans back and steers it, probably looking for third man, but the ball bounces a little more than he'd like and he ends up hitting it straight into Amla's lap. Takes it well, falling to his left. 137/5
Andile Phehlukwayo8.307318.58177231
14.6 to MJ Guptill, digs it in short on off stump, gets it up to shoulder height, and Guptill has trod onto his stumps! Swivels to hook it, doesn't quite control it, but that's the least of his worries as he loses his footing and slides into the stumps. 72/2
