TOTAL50 Ov (RR: 5.80, 214 Mins)290/5
Fall of wickets: 1-64 (Paul Stirling, 13.3 ov), 2-124 (Andy McBrine, 28.3 ov), 3-194 (Andy Balbirnie, 41.4 ov), 4-284 (Harry Tector, 49.2 ov), 5-290 (George Dockrell, 49.6 ov)
41.4 to A Balbirnie, chipped straight to mid-off. Another attempted yorker becomes a low full toss as Balbirnie makes room to clear mid-off but it's a straightforward catch for Bavuma. 194/3
49.2 to HT Tector, finds deep point after making a lot of room and that's the end of a terrific innings from Tector! He made room and sliced the full delivery in the air for a comfortable catch for Rabada. 284/4
49.6 to GH Dockrell, almost sends it all the way, he's taken at the deep cover boundary. Moved in the crease and slammed the full delivery right for the cover boundary where van der Dussen went to his right and jumped a bit to take it nicely in the end. 290/5
13.3 to PR Stirling, goes for another sweep but is bowled this time. Bowled much slower through the air on a full length on middle, as Stirling wants to sweep a wicket-to-wicket ball this time but is beaten by the flight and lack of pace as the ball slams his middle stump. 64/1
28.3 to AR McBrine, loud appeal, or celebrappeal, from Shamsi, and he's given lbw but Ireland review! McBrine went for the reverse sweep, got hit just under the knee roll right in front of middle and off. UltraEdge shows there's no bat, we all wait for ball-tracking, and it finally says it's pitched in line and is "hitting". So Shamsi gets the wicket after conceding two boundaries and Ireland lose a wicket and review. 124/2

TOTAL48.3 Ov (RR: 5.09)247
Fall of wickets: 1-28 (Aiden Markram, 4.4 ov), 2-51 (Temba Bavuma, 10.1 ov), 3-159 (Janneman Malan, 32.3 ov), 4-160 (Rassie van der Dussen, 33.4 ov), 5-184 (Kyle Verreynne, 38.5 ov), 6-199 (Andile Phehlukwayo, 41.5 ov), 7-201 (David Miller, 42.3 ov), 8-234 (Kagiso Rabada, 46.2 ov), 9-247 (Keshav Maharaj, 48.2 ov), 10-247 (Anrich Nortje, 48.3 ov)
4.4 to AK Markram, nabbed at extra cover. Good length ball again, and not all that short to play the pull. But Markram goes for that shot, only for the ball to rush on to him and come off the bottom of the bat. The ball balloons in the air, and the man at extra cover has no problem in gobbling that down. 28/1
48.2 to KA Maharaj, caught at long-on for further joy in the Ireland camp. Low, dipping full-toss on middle. Maharaj tries to hammer that beyond the boundary, but gets it off the toe end of the bat. 247/9
48.3 to A Nortje, yorker, hits leg stump and game over. Nortje moves across his stumps, but this is an inswinging yorker on middle, as the batter gets an inside edge on to the leg stump to finish it off. 247/10
10.1 to T Bavuma, he strikes first ball! Bavuma wants to get the run rate going and pulls this short delivery to square leg, but not quite off the middle, where Dockrell dives forward and to his right to get both hands to it. 51/2
38.5 to K Verreynne, but this edge is taken, straightforward chance for the keeper! Outside off with the angle, Little has been coming around the wicket to Verreynne, the batter throws his hands with a big swing and gets a faint outside edge for the keeper. He throws the ball in celebration, Little is pumped as well. They know they're getting closer. 184/5
42.3 to DA Miller, right down the throat of long-on, and that should be it! Skips down the pitch to this full ball on middle and leg, but gets it off the bottom of the bat into the hands of Tector. 201/7
32.3 to JN Malan, Tries once again but holes out to deep midwicket where Mark Adair takes it comfortably. He wanted another boundary and took the aerial route again on the leg side, but hard got enough distance this time, as Adair ran in from the boundary rope to pouch it in front of him. Big wicket for Dockrell. 159/3
33.4 to HE van der Dussen, loud, loud appeal for lbw, the appeal is dying and then the finger goes up! van der Dussen reviews immediately, what a big wicket this will be even if it's umpire's call. He is struck in front of middle and leg on the back foot after the ball turns inland goes past the bat, not much in the batter's favour so far. They're checking for the edge now, and it appears there's a very very thin spike when the ball passes the bat. The umpire is having a look at it again and again. Rock and roll, again and again. "Roll it once more, just once more slowly," says the third umpire. "No contact with bat and ball," he concludes, and then ball-tracking shows it's clipping leg stump, which means the on-field decision stays. van der Dussen goes for 49 and SA four down all of a sudden. 160/4
41.5 to AL Phehlukwayo, makes room but lofts down to long-off. Phehlukwayo wanted to make up for the quiet over by clearing the shortish boundary, but can only find the fielder off this full ball on middle. 199/6
