    4.6 leading edge, and short third man running back gets Stirling. Goes for the flick to this full delivery on middle and leg, and Hendricks turns around and runs behind to complete a pretty good catch. Another early blow for Ireland 36/2
    1.3 top-edges a sweep and finds square leg. Malan on the field for Miller, and he takes an easy catch as O'Brien departs for another low score. He went low to this full delivery on middle and leg, and went to sweep but couldn't find the middle 9/1
    9.1 and he falls leg before while going for the sweep. Linde bowls quicker and very full on middle and leg. The balls turns away from the batter while he plays the sweep, and strikes his back pad. Just half an appeal, and the umpire had his finger up already. That looked really plumb after all 69/3
    10.1 faint inside edge to the keeper, and Mulder strikes first ball. Tucker goes for the scoop by stepping outside off to this full delivery on off, but can only get an inside edge behind, where Klaasen goes low to complete the grab. Ireland in trouble - again 75/4
    10.6 excellent catch by Markram at long-on! Tector came down the track to this ball in the slot on middle, and simply lofted that to place really well without much power. But Markram runs to his left, and dives full stretch to nab that. Outstanding take 78/5
    14.2 edge behind, and that's another wicket down. Soft dismissal in the end, with the batter making room to his fullish ball slightly outside off and going for the cut to the slower delivery. He instead gets a top edge, which is neatly taken by the keeper to send back the seventh Ireland batter 94/7
    13.4 Simi is run-out at the keeper's end. He again came down to this very full ball on middle and off, and drove really hard to Bavuma at extra cover, and took off immediately after hitting. But there was no run there, since the ball travelled really quickly, and so did the throw from the fielder. Simi ended in the middle of the pitch, and Klaasen had all the time in the world to dislodge the bails 92/6
    15.5 is that another run-out at the keeper's end? Yeah, the batter is really short of the crease. He came down the track to this full ball on middle and leg, which he tickled to short fine leg, and took off for the run. The throw arrived pretty high over the stumps, as Klaasen leaped to collect it. But with the batter far away, he had a lot of time to flick the bails 102/8
    not out
    18.6 good catch by the man at cover turning around and running behind. The bat face opens as he again goes to loft that full ball on off over extra cover, but doesn't get the timing this time 135/9
