Ruben Trumpelmann301806.0071010
David Wiese402225.50102000
14.2 to GJ Delany, what movement off the pitch! Wiese bowls a length ball on fifth stump that jags back sharply as an offcutter and pierces the gap between bat and pad on Delany's ill-fated slog and clangs into leg stump.. 94/3
17.4 to HT Tector, offcutter back of a length on fifth stump, Tector's timing is thrown off by this 114 kph delivery and an attempted back foot punch goes awry as Tector is cramped for room with the ball cutting in a touch. Thin edge goes through to Green.. 110/6
JJ Smit402716.7560100
18.4 to NA Rock, leg stump yorker sends Rock on his way. Pinpoint accuracy from Smit. Rock backed away a touch from leg stump trying to squirt this out through point but Rock can't squeeze this out and it ricochets off the toe of the bat into off stump.. 116/7
Bernard Scholtz302518.3354000
7.2 to PR Stirling, Scholtz provides the breakthrough. Fuller on the stumps, Stirling came down the ground and aimed to clear long-on. Didn't get enough power behind that and Loftie-Eaton takes a good, sliding catch after running to his right. 62/1
Jan Frylinck402135.25112010
8.4 to KJ O'Brien, KOB holes out. Fuller on the stumps, KOB picks it up and looks to go over the deep square leg fielder. But it didn't come from the middle of the bat. van Lingen makes no mistake. 67/2
16.1 to A Balbirnie, full and angled into the pads, Balbirnie misses a slog and a huge lbw shout is upheld but Balbirnie goes for the review. May have been sliding down leg, and also was hit quite high on the belt line while crouching down to slog. Ball-tracking shows three reds as the bounce on this pitch just isn't there today.. 101/4
16.6 to C Campher, slower ball at 107 kph lands full on middle, Campher way out in front of a slog and is castled! Ball skids into leg stump and Frylinck roars with a fist pump!. 104/5

Curtis Campher301424.6670000
5.1 to CG Williams, an excellent catch by O'Brien. It was full around off, in the slot for Williams and went after it. He hit it hard but didn't get the elevation to clear mid-on. O'Brien timed his jump perfectly and took it overhead with both hands. 25/1
13.2 to ZE Green, Kevin O'Brien with a carbon copy effort at mid-off. Identical catch he took leaping in the Powerplay to dismiss Williams as he tag teams again with Campher. Fullish length, Green tries to clear O'Brien on the ring but mistimes the drive and it flutters up for O'Brien to backpedal and take another smart catch reaching high above his head.. 73/2
