Doug Bollinger402315.75123010
0.2 to Q de Kock, got him, extra pace and bounce and de Kock feathers through to Dunk! Nothing stroke from de Kock, just hung his bat out - but the ball fair zipped through off the surface, seamed a fraction, took a small but visible deflection off the edge and South Africa are one down. 1/1
James Faulkner402536.25122100
1.6 to RR Rossouw, got him, slower ball and this time the leading edge is snaffled by Faulkner! He's a canny lad in this form of the game, Faulkner, although his back-of-the-hand delivery was heading down the leg side. Rossouw was done by the lack of pace, heaved to leg again, the edge ballooned back down the pitch and the bowler clutched it diving to his right. 14/2
16.6 to DA Miller, scooped high into the leg side, there's a man under this... gottim! Miller's time is up, aiming for the same boundary that Duminy cleared a few balls ago, got under it but didn't have the distance, taken comfortably a few yards in from the fence. 90/5
18.4 to JP Duminy, Duminy hoicks a fullish ball high towards wide long-off - but it's taken on the run by Finch! The Aussies are waltzing here, they've nipped out the SA captain and still the score is below 100. The umpires checked for the no-ball but he had a smidge of rubber behind the line. 97/7
Sean Abbott201608.0053000
Glenn Maxwell201105.5051000
Pat Cummins411112.75130000
17.5 to R McLaren, another short ball, McLaren takes this one... and top edges to fine leg running in! This is pretty ordinary from South Africa, they're now six down and Cummins has the wicket he deserves. Dug in and angled across, McLaren was never in control of the shot and Faulkner hared in to take a good catch. 92/6
Cameron Boyce401523.75110000
8.4 to RR Hendricks, done him, Hendricks is down the river and stumped without a paddle! Superb work from Boyce, lured the batsman out but the ball dipped and he was nowhere near the pitch, just enough spin to go past the outside edge and he had no chance of regaining his ground. 46/3
12.2 to F Behardien, another one falls into Boyce's trap, stumped again! Think he saw Behardien coming, pushed his line a little wider, the batsman was reaching for it, well down the track, and Dunk was left with a simple piece of handiwork to finish it off. 60/4

Kyle Abbott201708.5062010
Kagiso Rabada302518.3374010
11.5 to GJ Maxwell, short and Maxwell swings himself off his little feet, top-edging to backward point! Rabada has his first international wicket, Maxwell caught slogging high to the edge of the circle second ball. 99/3
Jean-Paul Duminy10909.0032000
Wayne Parnell3.411724.63131001
4.4 to BR Dunk, makes room to swing down the ground but Dunk has picked out mid-on! Parnell bellows out a celebration, maybe hurried the batsman a little or could have been a cutter, he backed away and clubbed it straight into Abbott's bread basker. Dunk is back in the slammer after an enterprising knock. 43/1
10.5 to SR Watson, oh, he's gone, plugged a drive to mid-off! Warne has jinxed him... Watson was trying to hit the cover off every delivery and Parnell has been gifted a second wicket, didn't get the elevation he was looking for. 92/2
