Over 35.2 DW Steyn to DA Warner, out Caught by Amla!! Steyn this time bowled a gentle length ball that went away with the angle, Warner went hard on the drive and a thick edge was pouched safely by Amla at first slip.

Over 40.4 Kagiso Rabada bowls a good length delivery to Usman Khawaja, out Bowled! Khawaja was hurried by the pace and could not do much about it. Before the bat could come down in defence, the off-stump was cartwheeling.

Over 41.3 Keshav Maharaj bowls a quicker arm ball to SPD Smith, out LBW!  Tossed it up and Smith, like he always does, moved across as he left the crease, missed and was rapped on the knee roll, impact it is in line and just kissing the edge the edge of the leg-bail.Umpire raises the finger

Over 46.5 VD Philander bowls a good length delivery to SE Marsh, out LBW!  Marsh went for review. Superb reverse swing from Philander, the ball tailed in and Marsh fell over a bit on the clip. Was rapped at decent height.Umpire raises the finger.

Over 50.1 VD Philander bowls a good length delivery to MR Marsh, out Lbw!!

Over 60.6 Kagiso Rabada bowls a pitched up delivery to AC Voges, out Caught and Bowled!! Rabada almost missed that. His eyes spotted the ball late after Voges played the flick early, loopy caught and bowled chance and taken. Rabada throws the ball away and raises his arms.

Over 61.5 Keshav Maharaj bowls a tossed up delivery to Mitchell Starc, no runs, gets well forward and pushes it towards cover-point.

Over 67.5 Keshav Maharaj bowls a tossed up delivery to Peter Nevill, out Caught by Amla!!  Nevill was down the track to smother that one, a inside edge onto the pad, and Amla dived to his right to grab that before it hit the turf.

Over 70.1 VD Philander to J Hazlewood, out Caught by Duminy!! Bouncing delivery from round the wicket, Hazlewood stood beside the line, no feet and fenced it straight to gully. Duminy takes an easy catch.

Over 70.2 VD Philander bowls a good length delivery to Nathan Lyon, out Caught by Elgar!! Good length delivery outside off, Lyon on the back foot punch, got a thick edge and straight to Elgar at slips and he makes no mistake.
