Over 5.1 Imran Tahir bowls a tossed up delivery to DPDN Dickwella, out Caught by Theunis de Bruyn!! Dickwella buries down looking for the slog, looking to go several rows into the night sky and all he manages it getting it right down the throat of the man stationed there at the fence.

Over 5.6 Imran Tahir bowls a tossed up delivery to Dhananjaya de Silva,  out Bowled!! Very flat, went straight through sensing Silva to sink and slog. Too quick for the bat to come down in time and get the connection right. 

Over 6.2 AM Phangiso bowls a tossed up delivery to Dhananjaya de Silva, out Caught by Kuhn!! Silva decides to get into his whacking mood rightaway. Just not under it as well as he would have liked but doesn't bother holding back.

Over 7.2 Lungi Ngidi bowls a good length delivery to Seekkuge Prasanna, out Caught by Mosehle!! Prasanna cannot resist a flashy stab at it. Goes through full-blooded and grabs the thin outside edge flying away to the keeper.

Over 7.5 Lungi Ngidi bowls a pitched up delivery to Kusal Mendis, out Caught by Tahir!! Swiped this shortish delivery off the hips high in the air towards deep square leg, where Kuhn does all the hard work in getting to the ball, getting both hands to it .

Over 8.1 WD Parnell bowls a good length delivery to AD Mathews, out Caught by Theunis de Bruyn!! Mathews tad late in getting his bat down on the across-lined slog. And to make it worse, he finds the one man perched at the fence.
