46.4 to BD Glover, short of a length ball on the stumps. Glover looks to pull and doesn't get enough bat on it. He gets the bottom part of the bat on it. It bobs up in the air to long on where Porterfield takes the catch. 146/9
Craig Young9.221841.92461030
26.6 to PM Seelaar, and there's the wicket! Seelaar has been committing to the front foot very early and stretching his arms. This time too, he does the same and the ball is fuller. With him, falling over a touch, because of the extended front foot, he has to open the face of the bat. But he gets an outside edge back to the keeper and he gobbles it. 85/4
34.3 to SA Edwards, and he's gone? Umpire says no. There's a noise when it goes past the bat. Ireland reviews..length ball outside off and straightens enough, as he prods forward to defend. Replay suggests that there's a spike and Edwards is gone for 23 runs.. 111/6
36.3 to T van der Gugten, another wicket for Young..Back of a length and hint of away movement... van der Gugten tries to guide it towards third man, no feet movement at all. Ends up with an outside edge back to the keeper.. 114/7
49.2 to Saqib Zulfiqar, fuller ball outside the off stump. Saqib looks to go past cover but since he can't move his feet, he ends up lobbing it to the cover region. Porterfield dives to his left and takes a good catch to end the innings.. 157/10
Simi Singh1013703.70445010
Josh Little1013943.90466010
13.1 to SJ Myburgh, and the first wicket...back of a length, middle and off. Myburgh was caught in the crease and tries to cut it, not enough room for that. Ends up getting an under under edge which ricochet back onto the stumps. 44/1
13.2 to BN Cooper, two-in-two..Little on a hat-trick now..This was touch shortish and straightens outside off. This one kicked off the surface and takes the glove of Cooper on its way to the keeper. Extra bounce did the trick... 44/2
17.2 to MP O'Dowd, amazing bit of bowling! O'Dowd looked uncomfortable with the deliveries that pitched and straightened in the previous over of Little. This over, Little changed the angle and got one to straighten from the stumps. It hits the top of off. What made O'Dowd's job difficult was the change in angle. His footwork, dragging the feet back in to make room for the angle, made it difficult for him. That it straightened meant he was going to be in trouble. Bowled!. 58/3
38.6 to FJ Klaassen, appeal for lbw, and he's given..Klaassen reivews it. Length ball angling in from outside off, this one kept touch low, goes past the bat and hits the front pad. All three reds, good decision... 116/8
Andy McBrine1042812.80432010
27.4 to BFW de Leede, de Leede starts to walk after getting hit on the pad! Edwards runs over and convinces him to take a review. Is it the keeper's instincts coming into play? Whatever it is, they seem to have lost the review as he is hit in line with the stumps and the height is ok as well. It would have crashed into the stumps. Three reds and Netherlands blow a review as well. Familiar situation this for the team. Can they dig themselves out of this hole ?. 85/5

1.5 to WTS Porterfield, this time he's gone. Perfect yorker! Full and straight on the stumps, Porterfield once again misses out. He was late to get his bat down and it hits the middle stump. 9/1
Brandon Glover703805.42275060

Pieter Seelaar923814.22365000
23.1 to PR Stirling, oh well! Against the flow of play! Is this the wicket that will turn the game on its head ? Fuller, Flighted ball. Stirling comes down the track and looks to play across the line. The hoick ends up in the hands of Myburgh at mid on. 91/2
