12.1 to RR Rossouw, bowled him! Tried to get too funky on the ramp, ends up tumbling across his crease to the full length outside off, and deflects the stroke straight into his off stump. Next time maybe.... 126/3
5.2 to PD Salt, gottim, nicked to the keeper! Pace off does the trick for Ngidi and Royals have the breakthrough. Salt wont' be getting that hundred today, then... big heave across the line but completely mistimed and a thick edge loops through to Buttler. 69/1
16.4 to BKG Mendis, sits back on the hack... and holes out to mid-off! Another slower ball, Mendis chooses to go for broke, but he can't wrap his bat round the stroke, as Miller back-pedals to swallow the offering. An outstanding innings comes to an end. 183/4
9.1 to TB de Bruyn, flying grab in the gully! A short wide ball, an open-faced hack, and old man Eoin sees it straight off the face of the bat, flings himself full-stretch to his right, and plucks a blinder! Well now!. 93/2

TOTAL20 Ov (RR: 8.35)167/9
Fall of wickets: 1-30 (Paul Stirling, 2.5 ov), 2-30 (Jason Roy, 3.3 ov), 3-38 (Mitchell Van Buuren, 5.2 ov), 4-67 (Eoin Morgan, 8.2 ov), 5-101 (David Miller, 13.4 ov), 6-115 (Andile Phehlukwayo, 15.3 ov), 7-115 (Evan Jones, 15.5 ov), 8-153 (Jos Buttler, 18.4 ov), 9-163 (Bjorn Fortuin, 19.3 ov) • DRS
2.5 to PR Stirling, picked up leg side, taken at deep square leg! Bosch bangs away on a length and makes the breakthrough for Capitals. Stirling was looking to go across the line and target the short boundary but got it off the bottom of the bat, never enough to clear Muthusamy in the deep. 30/1
3.3 to JJ Roy, pinned on the pads, gone! Roy is nailed to the crease by a 152kph rocket, and he's not going to review. Nortje gets this right on the money, completely beats the England opener for pace and he's squared up, rapped in front of middle as the bat scissors down. Trouble for Royals. 30/2
5.2 to M Van Buuren, sliced high and out towards deep point - taken! Van Buuren departs after a scratchy knock, went hard at what looked like a slower ball but only succeeded in getting under it. Skied to the boundary rider who takes it safely well in from the rope. 38/3
13.4 to DA Miller, scuffs his pull to midwicket! It's a huge wicket in this over after all! Miller swings across the line, but misjudges the pace off what seems to be a more two-paced deck that Mendis allowed it to be in his innings... very high on the bat, and Paarl are on the rocks!. 101/5
8.2 to EJG Morgan, gets Morgan first up! Tries to launch another attack but holes out to deep midwicket. Legbreak on a length, he was hitting with the spin but nowhere near the pitch and it went high without getting the distance required. Adil Rashid sends his World Cup-winning skipper on his way. 67/4
19.3 to BC Fortuin, attempts the reverse sweep with nothing riding on the stroke, and back goes the stumps. 163/9
15.3 to AL Phehlukwayo, a wipe through the line, skied to mid-off! This is a really headless chase from Paarl, Phehlukwayo saw the full length, thought it was in his arc, but the ball was angled across his bows and found a leading edge for Ingram to grab well, scuttling back behind the bowler. 115/6
15.5 to E Jones, blinding take from Rashid at fine leg! Short and surprising from Neesham, and Jones was utterly suckered, hurried on the pull, couldn't get his bat through the stroke in time and Rashid hurtles in, tumbles forward and makes it two in the over for Neesham!. 115/7
18.4 to JC Buttler, pulled, top-edged, gone! Is it too little too late, if not for Capitals, then for Durban? Buttler goes for broke as Neesham bangs it in, outside off and fails to get over his stroke as short backward square back-pedals. Still, a magnificent innings in adversity... scratchy at first but authoritative when it needed to be. 153/8
