Kagiso Rabada402716.75112111
13.2 to LMP Simmons, Simmons finally put out of his misery by a clever slower ball from Rabada at 119 kph. Fullish length legcutter on leg stump. Simmons backs away for another leg side heave, leg stump cartwheels backward. Simmons can walk off to meditate a bit on his 45.7 strike rate.. 89/3
Anrich Nortje401413.50141000
18.2 to AD Russell, pinpoint yorker on off stump at 148 kph! Pure heat from Nortje, too hot for Russell to handle. A heave for the leg side is defeated and the bails go flying.. 132/5
Keshav Maharaj402426.00110210
10.3 to E Lewis, flat again and quick on off stump on a good length, hustles Lewis going onto the back foot for another leg side heave, but this time doesn't get the elevation and picks out Rabada on the deep midwicket rope. Simple catch crouching at thigh height three yards in from the line. The only difficulty was that Rabada was starting slightly into the sun but held his nerve well.. 73/1
12.2 to N Pooran, slanted in flat across Pooran on fifth stump on a fullish length to encourage a drive but hits this too flat toward Miller at long-off, who tracks 15 yards to his left and slows down to steady himself before a bunny hop to fetch this above head height about four yards inside the rope.. 87/2
Tabraiz Shamsi3037012.3342310
Dwaine Pretorius201738.5053000
17.1 to CH Gayle, first ball wicket for Pretorius! Slower ball bowled wide outside off stump on a fullish length, Gayle's timing is thrown off and tries to drag this into the leg side but slices a thick edge behind to Klaasen.. 121/4
19.2 to KA Pollard, full on the stumps, slammed very straight and whistles past Aleem Dar who hits the deck before the ball goes straight to van der Dussen who was fielding at that ultra straight mid-off. They refer this for a possible catch, which Dar couldn't see because he was in self-preservation mode. Third umpire is called upon and it's clear the ball has short-hopped off the turf before going into Rassie's hands. Not out. And no run taken either. Hang on! They've given this out! Well well well, maybe I need to get my eyes checked but from my vantage point this hit the turf. Could be a talking point after play. Third umpire decides Rassie got his hands underneath the ball. I'm not convinced.. 137/7
19.3 to HR Walsh, slower ball on a good length at 112 kph on sixth stump, Walsh Jr slaps this high in the air over extra cover and the sweeper comes in off the rope 15 yards for an easy catch.. 137/8

Akeal Hosein402716.7591110
9.2 to RR Hendricks, sensational from Shimron at deep square! What a catch diving forward! Soft signal is not out!? Aleem Dar made the call. This looked clean live. Hendricks pulled in the air to deep square, Hetmyer ran forward dived at full stretch and took it clean as a whistle. This is out. The TV umpire is just checking but he's definitely caught it clean. Great catch. Hendricks is given out by the third umpire!. 61/2
