Jerome Taylor403037.50134100
16.2 to AB de Villiers, big wicket again, Gayle keeps his cool wearing those yellow-rimmed glasses, AB makes room and goes for the big hit down the ground, splices it to the orbit, Gayle at extra cover gets under it and holds on to it, finally those glasses are working. 155/4
16.6 to JA Morkel, bowled him, yorker, base of off, lovely bowling, Albie looks to make room and play it behind square but is late on it. Will these wickets slow SA down?. 159/5
18.2 to RE van der Merwe, another one goes down, VDM plays like only he can, his head falling away and slogging big, gets a top edge that goes nowhere but straight up into the sky, another dot ball too. 166/7
Fidel Edwards403418.50103120
17.4 to JP Duminy, another wicket, golden duck for Duminy, and a dot ball, Edwards goes for the bouncer, Duminy pulls, gets a top edge, Sarwan doesn't pick it to begin with at deep fine leg, but recovers to hold on to it low to his left. 163/6
Dwayne Bravo2024012.0035000
Sulieman Benn403619.0075000
5.5 to GC Smith, he has manufactured one shot too many, makes room again, finds the ball a bit short, goes through with the shot, the thick outside edge lobs it to backward point. 54/1
Kieron Pollard302919.6624000
14.4 to HH Gibbs, they've got Gibbs, against the run of the play, got too close to this one, was looking to clear midwicket, but didn't get enough elevation, and Taylor holds on to an easy catch. 136/3
Chris Gayle10707.0031000
Lendl Simmons2022111.0032100
11.5 to JH Kallis, Kallis is gone, looks for the big straight hit, times it well, but doesn't get enough power and picks out long-on. 105/2

Fall of wickets: 1-4 (Andre Fletcher, 1.4 ov), 2-13 (Chris Gayle, 3.1 ov), 3-70 (Dwayne Bravo, 8.6 ov), 4-91 (Shivnarine Chanderpaul, 11.2 ov), 5-133 (Lendl Simmons, 15.6 ov), 6-133 (Ramnaresh Sarwan, 16.1 ov), 7-142 (Kieron Pollard, 17.2 ov), 8-143 (Jerome Taylor, 17.4 ov), 9-159 (Denesh Ramdin, 18.6 ov)
Dale Steyn403027.5084000
16.1 to RR Sarwan, Sarwan goes for a laborious 8 off 11 balls. This was short and wide, but a slower ball, and he ended up going in front of square, but straight to sweeper-cover. 133/6
18.6 to D Ramdin, Ramdin tries the cute scoop this time, Steyn is full and fast, too fast for him and takes out the leg stump. 159/9
Wayne Parnell401343.25141000
1.4 to ADS Fletcher, big agricultural heave, is nowhere near the line of the ball, misses comprehensively, Parnell is fast and straight and gets the off stump, two ducks in a row for Fletcher. 4/1
3.1 to CH Gayle, Gayle is gone! Parnell strikes again, length ball, on the stumps, Gayle looks to go voer midwicket, can't clear Botha at midwicket, who doesn't even celebrate, throws it to the bowlers, for a moment one thought this was a no-ball. A big, big wicket, though. 13/2
17.2 to KA Pollard, almost a yorker, dug out, goes to Smith at cover, who starts celebrating, Pollard thinks this is a bump ball, Benson discusses with Dar and goes to third umpire. Replays show it is a low fulltoss, and the puff of dust comes from bat hitting the ground. Hang on! Strange! Given not-out! What drama. It was the wrong button pressed, the third umpire corrects himself. Long as they correct themselves in time, off goes Pollard. 142/7
17.4 to JE Taylor, he has made a mess of the stumps here, yorker, straight and fast, and Taylor plays all over it. 4 for 4 for Parnell, very close to best-ever figures in a Twenty20, which is 4 for 7 as it stands now. 143/8

Johan Botha2020010.0033000
Roelof van der Merwe403027.50101110
8.6 to DJ Bravo, that inside-out shot gets Bravo this time, makes room and goes through with that shot beautifully, but two things go wrong: van der Merwe has followed him so he is too close to it, and the long-off is wider than usual, the net result: Bravo picks out Steyn. 70/3
15.6 to LMP Simmons, they finally get Simmons, full and flat, Simmons hits it down the ground, doesn't get enough elevation and picks out long-off, but a knock this one has been. Take a bow Simmons, he has kept WI in this one. 133/5
Jean-Paul Duminy201618.0032000
11.2 to S Chanderpaul, lovely bowling, sees Chanderpaul come down the track, but still flights it nicely, gets it to dip, Chanderpaul plays it in front him because of the dip, and plays it back to Duminy. Any regular offspinner will be proud of this. 91/4
