Fall of wickets: 1-13 (Jason Roy, 2.6 ov), 2-66 (Jos Buttler, 8.5 ov), 3-89 (Dane Vilas, 11.3 ov), 4-131 (Wihan Lubbe, 15.6 ov), 5-142 (Eoin Morgan, 17.4 ov), 6-159 (David Miller, 19.2 ov)
15.6 to WJ Lubbe, bowled 'im! Top of off does the job for Topley and DSG. Perfect length and just a hint of nip back in off the deck, beats Lubbe's wild hack and sends him back for a well-crafted 57 off 36. 131/4
2.6 to JJ Roy, Grubber or was Roy just stuck on his crease? Went quite low. It was off a length, came in straight. Roy was setting up on the back foot, tried to lower the straight bat in the last second but fell over and the bal rattled furniture.. 13/1
17.4 to EJG Morgan, Morgan holes out! Limp innings from the former England captain, looking for that favoured leg-side pick-up but doesn't get hold of it, and presents a dolly of a catch to deep midwicket. 142/5
19.2 to DA Miller, smacked to deep midwicket! Pretorius gets the danger man, as Miller drags a big hit straight to the man on the boundary rope. Pace off and he couldn't generate the power to get it all the way. 159/6
8.5 to JC Buttler, Maharaj outsmarts and outskills Buttler. He claps zealously in celebration. Was similar to the last ball. Buttler came down early, Maharaj pulled his length back and hung it outside off. Buttler opened the face and tried to push it on the move. Misses it this time, easy stumping for QDK.. 66/2
11.3 to DJ Vilas, tossed up wide of off stump, Vilas sweeps... and feathers through to de Kock! Immediate celebration from Subrayen and up goes the finger. Vilas was looking to manufacture a shot into the leg side, the ball stayed a touch low and grazed the bottom edge through to the keeper. 89/3

Fall of wickets: 1-22 (Kyle Mayers, 2.5 ov), 2-29 (Quinton de Kock, 4.2 ov), 3-29 (Dwaine Pretorius, 4.3 ov), 4-47 (Wiaan Mulder, 7.3 ov), 5-78 (Jason Holder, 10.4 ov), 6-109 (Christiaan Jonker, 14.5 ov), 7-135 (Keshav Maharaj, 17.3 ov), 8-135 (Hardus Viljoen, 17.4 ov)
2.5 to KR Mayers, Soft, soft caught and bowled. Mayers tried to clip the slow, shortish ball angling away, to the stumps, but got a leading edge. Dolly accepted by Fortuin.. 22/1
4.2 to Q de Kock, Inside edge off the pull, off stump rocked back!. Fortuin was around the wicket. The ball was slightly back of length angling away to fourth. De Kock rocked back and tried to pull it in front of square. Thin edge took it onto the stumps, bails take a flight. De Kock smiles in resignation as the bowler celebrates.. 29/2
4.3 to D Pretorius, Inside edge found or has it? Buttler is interested in the review. They have reviewed. A very subtle signal from buttler, not a proud T normally seen. Looks like the ball hit the top of the back pad before hitting bat. Length ball just outside off, Impact three-fourth of the way up middle. It's hitting! Fortune favours Fortuin. Resigned smile from Pretorius who has to walk back. Royals are chuffed, excellent review. It came in, looked like spin. Pretorius was stuck in his crease and couldn't account for the angle in, he was trying to dab it late with an open face towards short third. Got hit on the pad before it hit bat.. 29/3
7.3 to PWA Mulder, Slog sweep again, not connected perfectly this time! Taken at deep square leg! This looked full, and Mulder saw it early but probably went after it too early. Got it off the bottom, in the air to the fielder. He's distraught. Shamsi enthusiastically high-fives Buttler, plucks out the stumps and uses it like a walking stick, holds onto his hamstring and signals to the dressing room - probably the physios - in celebration.. 47/4
10.4 to JO Holder, slugged... but he picks out the boundary rider! Bowled into the pitch again and Holder doesn't quite get the yardage on his pull. Struck firmly and flat towards deep midwicket, but it's taken above his head by that man Fortuin. 78/5
14.5 to C Jonker, short and lumped to deep square leg! Jones bags another and this tall chase just gets taller for DSG. Jonker took on the pull but didn't get enough of it, straightforward grab for the man coming in off the rope. 109/6
17.3 to KA Maharaj, swings to leg... straight to cow corner! Not the connection Maharaj was looking for and it's well held above his head by Roy, a few yards in from the rope. Jones roars in celebration after claiming his third wicket. 135/7
17.4 to GC Viljoen, clubbed downtown, taken on the run! Brilliant from Miller and Jones has two in two! Full ball and he got under the shot, it hung in the air as Miller an around from long-off, then swooped to take it smoothly. Royals closing in. 135/8
