Henry Davids10707.0041020
Kerwin Mungroo402115.25111020
19.1 to D Wiese, that looks plumb and it is. Wiese shuffles across to play the flick, Mungroo keeps it full and straight, thuds on the front shin and it was heading one way. 141/5
Isuru Udana402426.00100110
2.5 to T de Zorzi, gone! Udana draws the first blood. Length on off, nipping back in slightly. Zorzi was looking to dispatch this one into the stands but was undone by the slower one as the ball snakes through to rattle the middle pole. One has to agree that Mungroo's previous over created the pressure. 14/1
16.2 to AB de Villiers, bowled'm...he gets his man! Full and straight is the way to go says the Sri Lankan recruit. Saw AB waltzing across to play the famous ramp but this time he was beaten for lack of pace and the trajectory of the ball. 121/4
Ferisco Adams3034011.3312120
Bjorn Fortuin302307.6611000
Tabraiz Shamsi402927.2552000
7.3 to D Elgar, he gets his man, you just can't keep him out of the game. Elgar charges down the track but Shamsi had slowed his pace down and lured him into the false stroke, Elgar on the move goes with the shot, gets a lot of elevation but not the requisite distance, Fortuin at cover back peddles and takes a lovely catch. 55/2
12.3 to H Klaasen, gone! He has thrown it away and finds his counterpart. Tossed up on middle and off, watlz down a bit and tires to clear long-on, doesn't get any power behind the shot and Faf at long-on takes an easy catch, safe as a church. 91/3

Imran Manack2.201817.7161100
12.6 to D Pretorius, finally someone holds on to one! Slower through the air and slog to deep, Bosch this times covers good ground and snaffles a good catch. 132/2

David Wiese3034111.3362310
7.3 to CS Delport, slower ball delivery and Delport had to wait ages to put bat on ball, fails to do so and the ball disturbs the woodwork. 80/1
