Fall of wickets: 1-0 (Quinton de Kock, 0.1 ov), 2-12 (Rilee Rossouw, 1.4 ov), 3-40 (Aiden Markram, 3.5 ov), 4-55 (Reeza Hendricks, 5.3 ov), 5-61 (Heinrich Klaasen, 6.3 ov), 6-79 (Wayne Parnell, 8.3 ov), 7-126 (David Miller, 10.4 ov), 8-131 (Bjorn Fortuin, 10.5 ov) • DRS
0.1 to Q de Kock, gone first ball! Length delivery angled across just outside off stump. de Kock tries to heave it away into the leg side but the ball just sticks in the surface a little. That, coupled with the angle means that de Kock can only slice it towards short fine leg, where Cottrell does the rest!. 0/1
1.4 to RR Rossouw, straight to mid off! And the salute is out! Length delivery just outside off stump that hurries onto Rossouw and also cramps him for room. He still tries to go over mid off but ends up hitting it straight down the fielder's throat! South Africa are two down very early!. 12/2
6.3 to H Klaasen, drilled straight to backward point! Full and wide outside off stump. Klaasen throws his hands at it, possibly looking to go over backward point. He does not get the elevation, though, and arrows it straight to backward point!. 61/5
3.5 to AK Markram, that goes miles up, and taken at deep mid wicket! Length delivery on middle and leg stump that might have just held in the surface a little, Markram has a massive mow at it but is perhaps a shade early into the stroke. It clinks off the bottom of the blade and Charles holds his nerve to complete the catch on the fence!. 40/3
8.3 to WD Parnell, edged and taken! Slower delivery on a length outside off stump. Parnell has a swish at it but is again too early into the stroke. He nicks it through to Pooran, who dives forward and completes the catch comfortably!. 79/6
5.3 to RR Hendricks, Hendricks bites the dust! Back of a length delivery outside off stump that seems to stick in the surface. Hendricks is early into his pull this time and feathers it through to the keeper, who makes no mistake! In fact, that might have grazed the bottom of the bat on its way through to Pooran!. 55/4
10.4 to DA Miller, but he bowls length, and gets rid of Miller, oh my! Length delivery outside off stump, and the angle means that Miller has to fetch it. He gives it everything he has but can't get enough wood to clear Shepherd on the deep mid wicket fence! Take nothing away from this knock, though! It has taken South Africa to a very defendable total!. 126/7

TOTAL10.3 Ov (RR: 12.57)132/7
Fall of wickets: 1-17 (Kyle Mayers, 0.5 ov), 2-34 (Brandon King, 2.1 ov), 3-66 (Nicholas Pooran, 4.2 ov), 4-76 (Johnson Charles, 5.4 ov), 5-112 (Romario Shepherd, 8.1 ov), 6-120 (Odean Smith, 9.3 ov), 7-120 (Akeal Hosein, 9.4 ov) • DRS
0.5 to KR Mayers, Mayers perishes! Slowed up nicely on a length on middle and leg stump. Mayers looks to go big again but this time, tries to go a little too square. The ball holds up in the surface too and spoons off the outside half of the bat. de Kock calls early and gobbles up the chance!. 17/1
2.1 to BA King, oh, what has happened here?! High full toss that hones in on middle and leg stump. King walks across his stumps and looks to paddle it away. But the ball is just too full to be playing that stroke and the ball, would you believe it, clips the top of leg stump! Magala breaks through! The umpires check the height of the delivery but are happy with it!. 34/2
9.3 to OF Smith, knocks him over! Magala strikes back! Zing bails everywhere! Length delivery angled into middle and leg stump. Smith has a mow across the line but it looks like he is late on the stroke. The ball breezes past the bat and thunders into the top of leg stump!. 120/6
9.4 to AJ Hosein, Magala has two in two! Oh my! Is this game turning? Back of a length delivery just outside off stump that rushes onto Akeal. He looks to heave it over the leg side but because he is so late on the stroke, he can only top edge it. de Kock calls early, settles himself and holds onto it!. 120/7
5.4 to J Charles, excellent by Nortje on the long on fence! Full and hung outside off stump. Charles reaches out for it and looks to go over long on. He gets it right off the toe-end, though, and arrows it towards Nortje, who takes the catch initially before realising that he is going to step on the cushion. He parries it into the air, regains his balance, comes back onto the field of play and completes the catch!. 76/4
4.2 to N Pooran, edged and taken! Nortje gets Pooran! Rapid back of a length delivery on off stump that comes onto Pooran a lot quicker than he expects. He swishes at it but only manages a feather through to de Kock! The drop does not cost South Africa much, and they are right back in this game!. 66/3
