11.6 to AL Phehlukwayo, Phangiso takes a blinder. What a catch! A full toss, flicked off the pads and Phangiso flings himself backwards at midwicket and snaffles it over his head with the back arched. 102/3
19.1 to FD Adams, backs a long way down to a ball that's really full and not offering him any room, gets an inside edge onto the stumps. 162/6
Ryan McLaren403428.5075010
14.2 to Asif Ali, in the air and taken. Not Asif's night tonight. Swats at this short of a length ball, miscues it off the splce in the air and Duckett at extra cover gets under it. 128/4
17.5 to F Behardien, full toss outside off, shovels it straight down the ground, into the hands of long-on. 152/5
Imran Tahir401814.50111010
4.3 to Q de Kock, nice work from Imran Tahir! Draws the batsman forward with loop and flight. It's the googly and de Kock doesn't pick it. Charges down and the ball gets past the outside edge, leaving the keeper to complete a simple stumping. 41/1
Aaron Phangiso2027013.5031300
JJ Smuts2020110.0042100
10.4 to JN Malan, gets down for a reverse sweep, but it's not full enough. Misses and gets hit in front of middle and off. Plumb. 90/2

George Linde10909.0020100
Dale Steyn412125.25142000
1.2 to M Marais, leading edge! This has gone way, way up into the night sky. Marais stayed deep in his crease and whipped across it, but played right under the ball. Quinton de Kock called early, ran to his left and sighted the ball swirling in the breeze. He tumbles forward as the ball reaches him, but holds on to an excellent catch. 9/1
3.4 to JT Smuts, chipped gently back to the bowler! Steyn follows through to hold onto the caught and bowled chance. Smuts played too early at a ball that popped off the surface, lifting the ball in the air. Steyn delivered and carried on sprinting, diving forward to get his fingers under the ball before it hits the ground. The umpires ask for another look to make sure the catch is clean, and it is. 13/2
Ferisco Adams301304.3391000
Malusi Siboto3032010.6633101
Andile Phehlukwayo302418.0051110
10.6 to BM Duckett, gone! Duckett slices a drive out to long off and Asif Ali pouches an easy catch. Phehlukwayo floated up another slower ball, and Duckett swung underneath it to send the ball off the toe-end with elevation but not much power. Will this close out the game?. 78/3
Dane Piedt1020020.0013100
Hussain Talat10727.0031010
13.2 to CH Morris, Morris falls first ball! Hussain Talat has struck with his second delivery, and Cape Town Blitz are closing in on another win. Morris walked down to meet a slower ball from Talat, and he got a fair connection but couldn't beat the man positioned perfectly at deep midwicket. 104/5
13.3 to C Jonker, two in two! Another slower ball, and this time it's Jonker who shimmies out and heaves to leg. Again he gets some elevation, but again there's not enough distance to beat the fielder. Hussain Talat is on a hat-trick.. 104/6
