Imran Tahir to NLTC Perera, OUT, finds deep extra cover with the new bat. A great sliding catch from Rassie to his right. This is full outisde off, he looks to club it over the boundary. Ends up slicing it and Rassie gets there with a sprint. Tahir gestures to his family in celebration

NLTC Perera c van der Dussen b Imran Tahir 12 (23m 14b 0x4 0x6) SR: 85.71

Imran Tahir to BKG Mendis, OUT, takes it himself. And whatever the situation, Tahir will celebrate this wickets with fervour. Length ball, slow and turning away outside off. Steps out and doesn't get to the pitch of it. Gets a top edge, Tahir collects it in the covers region

BKG Mendis c & b Imran Tahir 41 (49m 31b 4x4 2x6) SR: 132.25

Shamsi to BOP Fernando, OUT, he's edged that! Slider at a length outside off, opens the face to run it down, thin edge that QDK has held on to

BOP Fernando c †de Kock b Shamsi 25 (59m 44b 3x4 0x6) SR: 56.81

Ngidi to WIA Fernando, OUT, clips it straight to mid-on. It was coming. Avishka wasn't getting close to most deliveries, leave alone one he's tried to whip through leg side. Length ball rising up at off stump, and he gets it off the inside half to find Shamsi

WIA Fernando c Shamsi b Ngidi 23 (32m 26b 4x4 0x6) SR: 88.46

Rabada to Dickwella, OUT, taken at mid-on! He's just seen a ball climb steeply, so this is not the smartest option from Dickwella: trying to play his beloved pick-up shot over square. It's going across him, and it's not too full. Nearly waist height as he gets bat on this and he gets it off the leading edge

N Dickwella c Imran Tahir b Rabada 2 (10m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 28.57
