    0.2 edges second ball and he's gone for a duck! Beaten first ball, gone second, what a start from Stirling. This was fighted even more and further outside off which drew Bavuma into a drive away from the body and he edged it nice and thick for a dipping and sharp catch to Josh Little at short third man 0/1
    6.1 and he strikes first ball! What a day this is for spinners so far. Simi came wide of the crease from around the wicket and gave it some revs but the angle brought the ball in with the angle and struck the back pad right in front of the stumps. Loud appeal and given straightaway. Was there some bat? We haven't seen the replays but de Kock wasn't too pleased 38/4
    0.4 and one more, another catch for short third man! This one much flatter and shorter outside off, Malan hangs back and slashes it late but straight to short third man for a comfortable catch at shoulder height 0/2

    3.3 right through him! Three down South Africa in 21 balls. Perfect length from Adair and just outside off to nip it in just a bit, Markram wanted to go down the ground with hard hands but missed it completely 24/3
    9.6 beats Miller twice and then gets the edge of van der Dussen! Angled it in from around the wicket to the right-hander, the batter was drawn forward to push away from the body and the ball took the edge on the way to the keeper. South Africa reeling now 58/5

    17.1 and he's out! Full on middle, and he looks to hit it over long on. Slices the shot though, and it's gone in the air on the off side. Cover gets under it, and Mulder is out after a crucial innings after making it to the XI for the first time this series 116/6
    18.4 back of a length on off, and angling into the batter. Much better direction from Adair, and that earns him a wicket. Tries to pull towards the leg side, but it pops in the air for cover to take a simple catch 134/7

    7.6 taken at deep midwicket, it's David Miller there, and Shamsi has struck! Stirling had been looking to push the rate, he went for the sweep again with the turn, but only got a leading edge which went almost straight to Miller in the deep 46/3
    0.6 straight back to the bowler, another duck in the match! Such a soft dismissal as Kevin chips the overpitched ball on off straight into the bowler's hands 1/1
    4.2 top edge goes really high and de Kock gets under it easily. Balbirnie was looking to attack for some time, this time he miscues the pull off the short of length ball completely and skies the ball just behind the stumps where the keeper takes a few steps towards first slip and pouches it 23/2
    9.6 holes out to long-on and another sharp catch taken! Flighted and slower on off, Dockrell swings down the ground and initially it looked like it would go all the way but Markram waited at the rope to leap at the perfect time and get both hands to it over his head 56/5
    8.5 leasing edge to cover and that's an excellent catch! He had dropped an easy catch early on, but this time he dives forward full length from cover and gets both hands under the ball just in time to take to cleanly. Tector came down to work the ball with the turn but it was well outside off and only managed an edge 51/4
    13.2 full, outside off, looks to play against the turn. Slog swept but it doesn't have the elevation! Smacked straight to Bavuma lurking at midwicket. 87/6
    14.1 you miss, I hit from Fortuin. Length ball on a stump to stump line. Backs away to explore the off side, but misses the cut. Goes under the bat and smashes into the stumps 92/7
    14.5 full on off, and he comes down the ground to go inside out over cover! Ball slides in, takes the inside edge, hits his pad, and rolls towards the wicketkeeper. de Kock is well aware, he moves forward, collects the ball and whips the bails off. But was Singh back in as he tried to recover? No! He's short by a few inches. Fortuin's third wicket, remember he is playing the series' first game, replacing Linde 93/8

    16.2 smart catch! Back of a length on off, and tries to pull it over square leg. But it's in the air instead, and Mulder has to keep his eye on the ball in the deep, watching out for the late swerve as the ball comes down, but holds on to it in the end 99/9

    19.3 slower ball yorker, on leg. Tries to swipe it leg side, but misses, and off stump has been dismantled! South Africa win by 42 runs and they are now 2-0 up in the series 117/10
