Commentary

  , Morkel to Watson, no run,
  , Morkel to Watson, no run, good length ball on off stump, defended as he gets forward to it
  , Morkel to Watson, no run, back of a length and a shade outside off, Watson watches it go through to the keeper and was a touch surprised by the bounce on it
  , Parnell to Finch, no run, back of a length on off stump, defended down the pitch.
  , Parnell to Finch, FOUR, short and wide and the ball screams please hit me. Finch obliges and beats a desperately diving David Miller at point
  , Parnell to Finch, 2 runs, tucks a good length ball through midwicket and picks up a couple before deep square leg can run across
  , Parnell to Finch, no run, fuller on middle and off, Finch unleashes the full face of the bat and finds mid-on
  , Parnell to Finch, FOUR, short and on middle and leg, not the best line with your fine leg up inside the circle. Finch shuffles across and pulls it past that man and collects a simple boundary
  , Parnell to Finch, no run, back of a length on off stump, jumps back to block
  , Abbott to Watson, FOUR, fuller delivery on and around off stump, Watson leans forward and taps it down the ground. Seemed to almost check his stroke as he realised he was onto it too early. But again the ball runs away
  , Abbott to Watson, FOUR, got across on off stump and whips a fuller delivery past a diving mid-on. That was the plan from South Africa, to get him out leg before but that time the timing was too good
  , Abbott to Watson, no run, gets forward to push a good length ball down to mid-on. Abbott's doing well to pull things back here
  , Abbott to Watson, no run, good length ball outside off, Watson blocks
  , Abbott to Watson, no run, pushes forward on off stump and defends back at the bowler. Big stride again, but he didn't get it that far across
  , Abbott to Watson, no run, good length ball that cuts back in at Watson who had plonked his front foot across to block. Huge appeal from Abbott, but it might be a touch too high and moving a bit too much
  , Parnell to Finch, no run, fuller delivery on middle and leg, pushed down to mid-on
  , Parnell to Warner, OUT, and one of 'em's gone! What a catch from Peterson at mid-on! It was swirling, he had to run to his left, then has to move back and then dive even further to pluck a smashing catch over his shoulder! It wasn't quite the best length to come forward and go for that lift over the leg side. Hits a little too high on the bat and he lost control of it, judging by how his bottom hand came off it
  , Parnell to Warner, FOUR, bowls short on middle and leg and Warner has pulled it behind square where there is no protection. It was always these two that were the biggest threat to South Africa
  , Parnell to Warner, 2 runs, fuller delivery on middle and leg, Warner looks to lift it over the leg-side infield again but he hasn't timed it well. There's a deep square leg, there's mid-on chasing after it as well. But it falls between them
  , Parnell to Finch, 1 run, gets across on off stump and flicks a shortish ball through midwicket
  , Parnell to Finch, no run, good start, and he shows off a bit of aggression by feigning to throw after fielding a push down the ground off the back foot. Finch barely flinches
  , Abbott to Warner, no run, opens the face as he keeps to his back foot and pushes a shortish ball into cover
  , Abbott to Warner, no run, good length ball on middle, kept out
  , Abbott to Warner, no run, leans forward and drills a fuller ball outside off through to cover
  , Abbott to Warner, no run, waits on a shortish ball outside off and chops it to point
  , Abbott to Warner, no run, back of a length and on off stump, defended into the covers
  , Abbott to Finch, 1 run, shortish and outside off, Finch slices it to third man
  , Morkel to Warner, SIX, Crowd catch alert! This was just back of a length on leg stump and he has helped it away a la Sanath Jayasuriya over square leg. So clean
  , Morkel to Warner, no run, fuller ball pushed across the left-hander and he chooses to let it go at the very last moment
  , Morkel to Warner, FOUR, clobbered! It was length and Warner decides it just has to go and smashes it to the boundary at cow corner. Very emphatic
