and he strikes straightaway. Fuller around off, Vilas moves across and looks to paddle it fine. Misses and the off stump is out of its groove
8.30pm And the rain has got heavier enough for the umpires to call it off. Handshakes all around with the Spartans clearly in the driving seat. But the teams share two points each. Both these teams have their three out of four games washed out so far.
A light drizzle out there but we will continue
fuller on the stumps and smashes straight over the bowler's head
full and wide outside off, Hales reaches out for it. Did he get some bat on it? Klaasen thinks so and is celebrating a caught-behind. The umpire doesn't think so
in the blockhole. Digs it out towards deep midwicket
back-to-back sixes for Vilas. Moves across, goes down on one knee and slaps it over deep square leg once more
short of length at the batsman. Vilas transfers his weight bat and pulls it over deep square leg. First six of the innings
64 needed from 24 balls. The first two overs are the powerplay overs. Here is Tom Curran
backing away too much and Ngidi just bowls a length ball outside off. Vilas cannot reach there
length ball around off, flicks it towards deep midwicket. Was looking for the second but will have to settle for only one
length outside off, goes for the cut but ends up under-edging it towards the keeper
short of length outside off, guides it towards third man. No hat-trick here
and that's two in two. Ngidi is on a hat-trick. Short of length outside off, Lubbe pulls it fine but ends up hitting straight to de Villiers at deep midwicket
Around the wicket
and a wicket first ball. You cannot ask for a better start. Was a short of length around off, Marshall went for the pull only to sky it up straight and Ngidi settles under it and pouches it easily
8.16pm Alex Hales and Wesley Marshall are out to chase 66 in five overs. Ngidi has the ball.
8.00pm The covers are coming off. Play will resume at 8.18pm. Heat to chase 66 in five overs.
7.25pm There is a flash of lightening in the sky. And the umpires have asked the players to leave. A little bit of rain as well but apparently it's more about the lightening. The main cover is coming on slowly. And I think it will Durban Heat batting whenever we resume. And then if it's a 15-over game, Heat's target would be 160.
length ball around off, hits it over mid-off for four
length but down the leg side, goes for the big swipe but cannot reach there
almost a yorker, Mulder takes it on the full and flicks it towards deep square leg
a low full toss outside off, hits it towards long-off
Around the wicket. And I can see some rain in the background
short one, hurries on to van Biljon who goes for the pull but the ball hits the bat than the other way around and balloons up. Abbott settles under it to complete one of the easiest return catches
fuller and wider outside off, reaches out for it but cannot connect
length ball around off, backs away and smashes it over extra cover
