Kevin Sinclair402325.7572000
6.5 to Q de Kock, West Indies think they have their man but Brathwaite is unmoved! Convincing appeal for caught behind and they opt to review. Arm ball from Sinclair, from round the wicket, as de Kock shuffled across, looking for a paddled pull over short fine leg. Misses the toe, but does it flick the glove? Yes it does! Kisses the glove, into the thigh pad, then spills up towards leg slip and Pooran takes an excellent catch behind the stumps. Brathwaite has to change his decision, and QdK has to trudge off. And there's the somersault, belatedly - his trademark celebration. 73/1
10.2 to RR Hendricks, goes for the reverse-sweep, but is beaten and the umpire gives him out. Hendricks reviews. That was very full and given air on middle, as Hendricks almost played that with a lop-sided bat with the ball hitting his back pad on the full. But UltraEdge not ready, says the TV umpire as there's a delay there. With no UltraEdge available, the process moves on to ball-tracking - "we'll have to settle for that" says the TV ump, with a split-screen showing daylight between bat and ball - which shows the ball pitching in line, impact in line and hitting on umpire's call on off stump. So that remains out. 96/2
Fabian Allen403508.7574100
Jason Holder302618.6663100
16.5 to T Bavuma, cleaned him up! After just four singles in the over, Bavuma had no choice but to try and slog this one away. He shapes to swing this toward midwicket, but the full length ball crashes into middle and leg stump. South Africa slipping away after that brilliant start as Holder roars his excitement out. 149/5
Andre Russell201819.0052100
15.2 to HE van der Dussen, off stump is knocked back. Full length on off with another roundarm action, as VDD tries to slog it to the on side by clearing his front leg and going down on his back knee, but is completely beaten by the pace and accuracy of Russell, who gets this angling into him. Last night's half-centurion is gone, and South Africa stare at a middling total again. 139/4
Obed McCoy402536.25112020
13.1 to DA Miller, that was in the slot, but Miller still finds deep midwicket. Pitched on a full length on middle and off, and Miller swings his bat to try and dispatch the ball for six. But he finds the fielder, as the umpires now confirm if the catch was clear, as the ball was dipping toward the fielder. The soft signal is out, and so it stays after replays confirm there was never any doubt there with the fingers clearly underneath. 122/3
17.2 to GF Linde, change of pace with that back-of-the-hand slower ball, as he bowls this full ball on middle at 111kph. The ball hits Linde's front pad on the full as he tries to flick, West Indies appeal for leg before but not given. Pollard reviews, and replays confirm there's no edge there. That's three reds too, with the ball going on to hit leg. More trouble for South Africa. 152/6
19.3 to H Klaasen, Sends this 109kph ball high, and bang to deep midwicket. Back of the hand ball on a good length on off, and Klaasen tries to heave but gets that from the higher part of the bat instead. Another South Africa batter gone. 165/7

George Linde401924.75141100
8.4 to N Pooran, shuffles across looking to take the left-arm spinner down but there's no turn, and it's skied miles up into the air. Miller settles underneath it at long-on, and Pooran is gone! Right option from Pooran, with a favourable match-up, but not the execution. 62/3
10.3 to AD Russell, is that the game? Klaasen pulls off a very good take at deep midwicket. Russell goes full tilt for the heave on the leg side but gets it off the bottom of the bat, but Klaasen steadies himself under the skied hit with the ball arriving to him in the shadow after travelling in the sun. Good take in the end to send back the dangerman. 70/5
Lungi Ngidi4049112.25105321
19.5 to FA Allen, pins him leg before to end the entertainment. Gets that yorker on middle on target, as Allen swings for the hills but misses. The ball hits his back pad on the full, and no umpire could have ever given that not out. 150/9
Kagiso Rabada403739.25111400
4.3 to CH Gayle, leading edge finds extra cover! Rabada gets the Boss and South Africa have two early ones. Just a hint of nip off the seam, as Gayle shaped to work a full ball into the leg side with the bat face closing in his hands. The leading edge looped up, straight into Linde's hands. 40/2
15.6 to ADS Fletcher, lofted bang to deep point. That seemed like heading beyond the boundary, as it was well timed. But Fletcher doesn't get the distance to this full ball from Rabada, which was pitched just outside off. Good take by Klaasen in the deep, and the set batter is gone. 104/6
17.6 to DJ Bravo, full-toss on middle and leg, and Bravo just about fails to clear deep midwicket. Cleared his front leg out of the way to make room to this scrambled seam ball, but couldn't get it away this time. Rabada is relieved, and so are South Africa. Phew, some over that one!. 129/8
Anrich Nortje402716.7593000
3.2 to E Lewis, knocks him over! 89mph/144kph, and Nortje rips through Lewis. Length ball, on the stumps, and Lewis was shaping to pull across the line but was beaten for pace. His stumps go flying, and South Africa have the breakthrough! Big celebration, roaring and fist-pumping. 31/1
Tabraiz Shamsi401614.00110010
9.5 to KA Pollard, picks out deep midwicket! Shamsi gets the pick scalp and South Africa are right on top. Legbreak, which turned into Pollard's arc as he got down on one knee to slog-sweep. Hendricks, at deep midwicket, dived forward, and took this low to the ground. Huge moment!. 65/4
