TOTAL50 Ov (RR: 6.92, 213 Mins)346/4
Fall of wickets: 1-225 (Quinton de Kock, 36.1 ov), 2-306 (Rassie van der Dussen, 45.5 ov), 3-311 (Heinrich Klaasen, 46.6 ov), 4-331 (Andile Phehlukwayo, 48.4 ov)
45.5 to HE van der Dussen, Slower ball, seemed to be right in van der Dussen's slot outside off stump. Slog-sweeps and seems to hit it quite well, but he ends up hitting it down the throat of long-on. 306/2
46.6 to H Klaasen, got him. Length ball outside off, and Klaasen, looking to lean back and carve it away through the covers, only manages a thick edge to the keeper. 311/3
48.4 to AL Phehlukwayo, bowled him. Blockhole ball, tailing in late as Phehlukwayo looks to make room to hit through the covers. Some late inward swerve, maybe reverse, and it's past the inside edge to crash into middle and leg stumps. 331/4
36.1 to Q de Kock, and there's the breakthrough. Shortish, but the ball skids on towards off stump and cramps de Kock for room on the pull. Hits it fairly well, but can't quite clear Adair, who takes it over his head right on the edge of the square leg boundary. He almost presses his heel down on the boundary cushions while taking the catch, but it looks like he's just about brought it under control while basically standing on tiptoe. 225/1

TOTAL47.1 Ov (RR: 5.85, 216 Mins)276
Fall of wickets: 1-12 (Paul Stirling, 2.6 ov), 2-19 (Andy Balbirnie, 4.6 ov), 3-27 (Andy McBrine, 7.1 ov), 4-81 (Harry Tector, 15.6 ov), 5-84 (George Dockrell, 16.3 ov), 6-92 (Lorcan Tucker, 18.6 ov), 7-196 (Curtis Campher, 36.5 ov), 8-226 (Mark Adair, 41.2 ov), 9-229 (Josh Little, 41.5 ov), 10-276 (Craig Young, 47.1 ov)
2.6 to PR Stirling, taken at slip! Maharaj has Stirling again! Slows that right down and draws him forward at an off stump line. Stirling is hesitant, initially shaping to push that into the leg side as it drifts. But that dips and holds its line as he tries to adjust and get the bottom hand off. Too late. Thick edge, and a smart grab low to the right. Just the man you want to get early when defending a big total. 12/1
4.6 to A Balbirnie, got him at slip too! Maharaj has Ireland's best. This is lovely attacking bowling. Gives it air outside off, lands it at a nice length and turns it away. Balbirnie is too far leg side of this as he looks to drive and it's another catch for Malan. 19/2
47.1 to CA Young, taken at mid-off. Young did his job, and now he has a hack at the fastest bowler in this game. Can't fault him. It's short and rising up at him, he can only slice it up for Bavuma who holds on and gestures in frustration. 276/10
7.1 to AR McBrine, a wicket off his first ball in ODIs! Lands it just short of a length, gets it to slide and climb as McBrine hangs the bat out to feel for it. Big edge on that, flies high to QDK's left and he grabs it. 27/3
16.3 to GH Dockrell, gone! Just a bit of extra bounce from Phehlukwayo in the corridor. Back of a length, looking to guide it down to third man, probably, but it straightens and kicks up a little to find the edge through to de Kock. Terrific delivery to follow up all those wides. 84/5
18.6 to LJ Tucker, got him, has he? It looked very out, and it's given out, but Tucker has reviewed. Good length ball angling into the stumps, and he walks across and misses a flick. It looked plumb at first glance... Past the inside edge, and it's hitting him in front of middle and off... Just clipping leg stump according to Hawkeye, and it will stay with the umpire's call. Tucker actually stepped out of his crease and stepped across his stumps, so that was probably the only thing that could have put any doubt in the umpire's mind. Play across the line like that, though, and you're much likelier to be given out. 92/6
36.5 to C Campher, taken at midwicket. Looks like it's Malan again. Campher's exciting knock ends. It's a short ball rising at a middle stump line, he backs into the leg side and has a slog at that. Gets a top edge and Malan pedals backwards to settle under that and complete his third catch of the day. 196/7
15.6 to HT Tector, caught right in front of off stump and lbw is given! Tector has a chat and reviews....but it seems like there's a confusion on whether he's reviewed in time. The umpire's ruled that he has reviewed late and Tector walks off, shaking his head. He held his arms aloft in protest, but the umpire's not having it. In all likelihood, it is a saved review for Ireland because this looked very out - full and turning in from off stump. He got his front leg across off stump and looked to flick and missed. It didn't turn a great deal and was full enough for height not to be an issue. 81/4
41.2 to MR Adair, taken at deep midwicket. Short ball at middle stump, sits up nicely but the marginal turn has cramped him on his swing into the leg side. Carries nicely and taken without a fuss. 226/8
41.5 to JB Little, Klaasen gets a second chance and holds on. Another wrong'un, tossed up at a middle stump line. Steps out to try and slog another one. It comes off the toe-end and is to the fielder's left at long-on this time. Tracks it nicely and goes low to get his hands around this. 229/9
