  , Chigumbura to de Kock, no run,
  , Chatara to de Kock, 1 run, fuller on the pads, another single to square leg
  , Chatara to Amla, 1 run, it cuts in from a length and surprises Amla, who was on the back foot. He manages to nudge it past midwicket for a single
  , Chatara to de Kock, 1 run, length delivery on the pads, clipped to square leg for a single
  , Chatara to Amla, 1 run, Amla could have been in trouble at the non-striker's end! A direct hit and he was probably gone.. the batsman had pushed the fuller delivery softly towards mid-off before setting off. Had to run around the bowler a bit too
  , Chatara to Amla, no run, he stands tall behind the crease and defends the length delivery to cover. Chatara continues to get good bounce
  , Chatara to Amla, no run, length delivery outside off, Amla hops and defends it to mid off
  , Vitori to de Kock, FOUR, he gets another loosener to correct his mistake and crashes on this one. No feet movement again, but this one hits the middle and screams along the surface to the extra cover boundary. Superb, when it comes off
  , Vitori to de Kock, FOUR, very lucky! de Kock tries to flay this full and wide delivery through cover but his feet do not move.. That takes the inside edge past the off stump and down to the boundary.
  , Vitori to de Kock, no run, length ball outside off, de Kock brings his body weight forward - no feet movement - and defends it to cover
  , Vitori to Amla, 1 run, stands tall and punches the length delivery to the gap at cover for a single
  , Vitori to de Kock, 1 leg bye, goes fuller this time and hits the pads, asks a half-hearted question. This was always going down the leg side and de Kock played outside the line. His feet were stuck. But they take a leg bye through slip
  , Vitori to de Kock, no run, bowls on back of length and the batsman punches it to cover
  , Chatara to Amla, no run, another good over from Chatara. It's short of length outside off, not much the batsman can do about it. He defends
  , Chatara to Amla, no run, good tight line from the bowler, the batsman defends the back of length delivery to mid-on
  , Chatara to Amla, no run, no timing again as he comes forward to drive the length delivery towards mid-off. That short cover would remain interested with shots like these
  , Chatara to Amla, no run, the length is fuller but Amla is stuck on the crease, defended to midwicket
  , Chatara to Amla, no run, he misses out as this was short and wide! Amla mistimes it to the short cover fielder. That stops on the surface a touch again
  , Chatara to Amla, no run, length delivery on the stumps, Amla shuffles across and defends on midwicket
  , Vitori to Amla, 1 run, shortens the length but still bowls on the pads, clipped easily to deep square leg for a single
  , Vitori to Amla, no run, length delivery on off, the batsman comes forward and punches it to mid off
  , Vitori to Amla, 2 runs, fuller and on the pads again, the batsman whips it past the short midwicket fielder for another couple
  , Vitori to Amla, FOUR, this one is even better! Vitori bowls it full and on the pads and Amla whips it to the deep square leg boundary. That was timed well.. Almost went for a six
  , Vitori to Amla, FOUR, bang! This time he decides to whip it rather than punch it. Finds the gap at midwicket. The bowler is bowling full as he is striving for swing.. but there isn't any
  , Vitori to Amla, no run, WHoaa!! Drop followed by another drop!First drop by the bowler, second - the richochet - by the mid-on fielder charging in. Amla punches it in the air back down the pitch, and the bowler was not able to get his hands up in time. It hits his left shoulder and lobs behind him. The fielder has the harder attempt to make but he is not able to slide under it in time
  , Chatara to de Kock, no run, Wo! What did that hit! This one was on a length and stops a touch. The batsman was looking to punch but played too early, lobbing the ball towards cover. He is lucky that it drops well short
  , Chatara to de Kock, no run, good line and length from Chatara, the batsman comes forward and defends it to mid off
  , Chatara to de Kock, 2 runs, looks to pull but this one doesn't get as high as he would have liked, adjusts to whip it through square leg
  , Chatara to de Kock, no run, he punches this length delivery straight down the pitch, that hits the middle stump at the other end. Amla is lucky that the bowler didn't get a hand to that as he would have been miles out
  , Chatara to Amla, 1 run, wooo... he gets an angled delivery and whips it stylishly towards midwicket, where the fielder gets a hand and prevents a certain boundary
