Colin Ingram403017.5072110
9.2 to DP Sibley, tossed up on middle and off, he steps out and heaves this across the line to Miller at wide long-on. He had to run around a fair bit to his right to catch this swirler. Kept his eye on it and then completed it easily. That he was trying to clear the longer boundary didn't help matters either.. 83/3
Michael Hogan403829.5073200
15.6 to GD Elliott, walks across the stumps and paddles this full toss to short fine. There was pace on the ball but he didn't get the bat direction right, ballooned it to the man at 45 degrees.. 139/5
19.5 to JS Patel, superb running catch by Miller at long-on. This was hit really hard by Patel, timed it well and was destined to the ropes until he saw Killer Miller lurking around the corner. Nearly burst through.. 174/8
Marchant de Lange403629.00103102
5.5 to EJ Pollock, would you believe it? Another full toss, and this time he has a wicket of the danger man. Outside off, this was crunched by Pollock and Carlson, at the edge of the ring at cover, took it rather comfortably. Let me tell you, that is sure to sting him for a while. He took it with both palms facing the sky. The kind of height where it could have so easily burst through his hands.. 65/1
18.4 to C de Grandhomme, pulled straight to deep midwicket. This was banged short, way outside off, he was better off trying to slap this over point. What also didn't help matters was that both feet were in the air and he was completely off balance as he struck that, which meant he couldn't generate the kind of power he would have liked.. 164/6
Graham Wagg3041013.6638010
Craig Meschede402426.0072000
6.5 to AJ Hose, that's as easy as eating chips. The slower delivery has done the trick, Donald has taken a dolly at deep midwicket. This was outside off, Hose looked to slog this across the line and got it nowhere near the middle. Donald hardly had to move as he gleefully accepted the catch.. 68/2
10.2 to SR Hain, the decision to walk across to sweep this over short fine has proved costly. This length ball veered back in to miss his slog and hit him in front of middle and off. Alex Wharf was dead certain that the ball would've crashed into the stumps.. 93/4

0.4 to AHT Donald, this is a sensational catch running to his left at deep midwicket. This was a short-arm jab which he nailed to the leg side. Hain, running to his left from deep square, was on the move when he got his hands. But the momentum sideways resulted in the ball bobbling out. But even as he slipped while trying to dive low, he somehow managed to regain composure and pouch this on the second attempt.. 5/1
15.3 to GG Wagg, backs away and slaps this short of length delivery straight to Elliott at mid-off. Struck well but didn't get the elevation. Cramped for room slightly, it was a leg-cutter so he had to force the pace as well.. 120/7
19.4 to AG Salter, taken brilliantly at long-off. Just inches before the ropes. What drama, what effort. He gave it his all. This was floated full on middle, he backed away and belted this straight back over. This swirled around for a long, long time. The ropes were lurking behind the two men underneath that. It wouldn't have been pretty as long-on and long-off, who bumped into each other, would have put that down. In the end, Hose just about managed to cling on. . 164/10
Jeetan Patel402706.75113100
Olly Stone402937.25102100
3.2 to CA Ingram, unbelievable from Elliott. This is a catch you wouldn't mind watching over and over again. Ingram heaves this length ball from outside off towards the leg side. Elliott at mid-on runs spontaneously to his left. Fact that he took a couple of steps even as the shot was it helped. Even then this was far from easy. This kept going away from him but he hared to his left, all along having his eyes on the ball, and just as it descended, he dived full length forward and took this inches off the ground. Wow. 31/2
5.5 to KS Carlson, what was he trying to do? Hitting on the up to a length ball delivery that rose. No position to hit through cover, just ended up getting a thick edge through to the wicketkeeper. Wrong choice of stroke and he's paid the price. Glamorgan in tatters now. 48/4
18.6 to M de Lange, slower, slower, slower, slower, bouncer and then a full, straight ball on off stump. He looked to back away and go over cover, beaten by pace as the off stump takes a walk. Superb from the 23-year old.. 150/9
Aaron Thomason403228.0085010
4.2 to DA Miller, nicked and gone. Angled full across the left-hander, deviated just a wee bit off the seam to take the outside edge as he went for a flashy drive. Lovely from the bowler. Superb seam position. David 'Killer' Miller is out without scoring. Big moment in the match, potentially. 39/3
16.2 to CAJ Meschede, sashays down the pitch and swings this over the bowler's head but the bat face turned in his hand, which meant there was not much power. More elevation than distance but for large parts, it looked like the ball would fall in no man's land. That the catch was possible is because of Hain's athleticism. Ran across a long way from long-on before sliding over make it look ridiculously easy. 127/8
Grant Elliott302518.3322010
8.6 to CB Cooke, floated on middle and leg, and he's chipped this a little too far. Sibley takes a simple catch coming in from deep midwicket. Timed this a little too well. Knuckle ball that was dying on him, looks like he attempted to simply bunt this into the gap for two, not to be.. 67/5
