Johan Botha402215.50142100
14.4 to BB McCullum, but Botha hits back immediately as Baz comes down the track and pulls into the deep but Botha had just slowed it up a touch and McCullum didn't have enough muscle on it to get it past deep midwicket who ran in and took a good catch running in on his knees. 114/3
Lonwabo Tsotsobe302307.6684010
Morne Morkel403819.50113300
17.5 to JEC Franklin, well that was all a bit understated, a full ball outside off which Franklin tries to jam through third man, ball hits bat as bat is hitting ground and the edge goes through to AB, they appeal and the umpire takes a while to send Franklin on his way as the players just stand around momentarily. 159/4
Marchant de Lange4043110.7572340
11.5 to MJ Guptill, South Africa get Guptill for less than fifty, it was short on off and he went for the hook over the fence to bring up his half-century but he top-edged it down to deep backward square where Albie Morkel was safely underneath it, a big wicket for the visitors who desperately needed a breakthrough. 97/2

Nathan McCullum201819.0071110
2.1 to HM Amla, Amla has miscalculated there, goes for a needless loft to a full ball outside off, slices it high down to Franklin at long-off who takes a simple catch. 25/1

Rob Nicol1010110.0030110
4.2 to WD Parnell, tossed up wide outside off and spinning away, Parnell tried to swing across the line and had to reach for it, missed and overbalanced out of the crease while doing so, Baz whips the bails off with Parnell well out as he tries to get back in. 41/2
