4

to de Kock, FOUR, and he's away straightaway. What a shot to open your account. Nothing wrong with the ball. It was an inswinger from a good length on middle, de Kock closes his bat-face and directs it between mid-on and mid-wicket. Got it off the middle of the bat and the quick outfield did the rest

4

to de Kock, FOUR, lovely shot! Overpitched and de Kock takes full toll of it. Presses forward and nails the straight drive past the non-striker. Bullets away into the fence

4

Ahmed to de Kock, FOUR, that's a glorious drive. You can't offer width to this guy. He'll hit you all day. Overpitched as well and de Kock creams the drive through extra cover

4

Ahmed to Amla, FOUR, poor ball! Short ball on leg, Amla swivels and pulls hard to the right of short fine leg. The fielder half-stopped it with a dive, but the ball still has enough legs to dribble past the boundary rope

4

Ahmed to Amla, FOUR, wow! Just wow. What a wonderful shot to bring up the 50-run stand. Length ball angling in, Amla stays in his crease and punches it superbly between extra cover and mid-off. split the gap to perfection

4

Ahmed to Amla, FOUR, third boundary for Amla and all three have come in this over. 14 off the over. Another eye-pleasing stroke. Pitched up delivery outside off, Amla opens his bat-face late and square-drives it through backward point. Races away

4

to de Kock, FOUR, starts with a low full toss and de Kock pushes it down the ground. Doesn't over-hit. A sloppy little work by the man at long-on, who runs across and tumbles all over the ball. Doesn't stop the ball from going over the ropes. won't be happy with that effort

4

to de Kock, FOUR, oh my! Terrific shot! Shortish ball, slower in pace as well, de Kock waits back in his crease and whips the pull behind square on the leg-side. Quick hands and the ball reaches the fence in a jiffy

4

to Amla, FOUR, poor ball! Loads of width outside off, Amla goes for the cut and gets a thick edge that runs away fine into the third man fence

4

to de Kock, FOUR, that's a stunning shot! de Kock anticipated the length - fuller length, moves across and sweeps it over short fine leg. One bounce and into the fence. All three stumps were exposed

4

to de Kock, FOUR, 15th ODI fifty from de Kock. A flawless knock so far. Length ball angling across, de Kock sinks low and paddles it over a non-existent short fine leg. Cheeky, but effective

4

to de Kock, FOUR, tenth 100-run partnership between Amla and de Kock! Another leg-stump line ball, de Kock gets low and sweeps it fine and into the fine leg fence

OT

to Amla, 1 run, 34th ODI fifty for the South African run machine - Hashim Amla! Much like his partner, a chanceless innings so far. Gets there with a firm push to long-off. Just a simple raise of the bat to acknowledge the applauding crowd

4

Hossain to de Kock, FOUR, shot! Width served and that's something you shouldn't give to this left-handed batsman. de Kock waits for it after going deep in his crease and then scythes it between backward point and short third man

4

Hossain to Amla, FOUR, not that wide, but the length was slightly short. That's enough for mighty Hash to wait and play the cut shot behind point. Fifth boundary for Amla

4

to de Kock, FOUR, powerful shot! Short ball without any venom, de Kock picks the length early and wallops it through mid-wicket with a strong pull shot off the back foot

4

to de Kock, FOUR, now the hoick. Wow. Stays deep in the crease, spots the overpitch and swings his bat to take it up in the air, smoking it wide of mid-on. Some way to bring up the 150

4

to Amla, FOUR, the edges now coming in. Oh dear. Nothing going right for Bangladesh. Amla, in a rare moment of indecision wafts away from his body with the feet stuck, gets the nick that flies through the vacant cordon

6

Ahmed to de Kock, SIX, phew. Two dots is the most you get. Picks out the back of the hand slower length ball, and picks the bones out of it. A lovely arc, full bat swing and a dispatch over long-on

4

to de Kock, FOUR, there's the three figures. Untroubled. Uninhibited. Sheds his poor conversion rates through the year in some style out here. Employs that late cut of his to punch it through behind point to get there

4

to de Kock, FOUR, a wobbly seam, tired, very tired. But Quinton isn't of smashing them. Lines up, waits on it and slams it through the covers

4

Hossain to de Kock, FOUR, goes fierce. A floaty wide tease, and dealt severely. Refuses to use his feet, doesn't need to when you have arms like that. Flashes it powerfully through the covers

4

to de Kock, FOUR, innovation now. Nothing particularly wrong with the ball but Quinton and his hands take over, quickly down to paddle it past the keeper

4

to de Kock, FOUR, easy pickings. Round the wicket to start, off-cutter to follow and on the pads to end. Quinton swivels and swishes to put it away into the square leg fence

4

to de Kock, FOUR, now with grace. The leg-line now changes into a full toss, my word. And QDK stays up, with a mere punch to punish it straight back

4

to de Kock, FOUR, and the most graceful. A half volley, and Quinton walks into the drive, showing all the face as he smears it down, and away

4

to Amla, FOUR, into the 90s. And this time it is Amla rubbing in the misery. Another overcook as he goes high elbowed and through the line to hold his pose as well in drilling it through the off-side

D

Ahmed to Amla, 1 run, dropped. The only chance Bangladesh had all day, and it goes down. Amla checks his forward punch and ends up chipping it back, where , gets both hands and makes a mess

4

Ahmed to Amla, FOUR, goes after the width. Hard. Uppish. And into the ropes. On the toes, freeing his arms and cutting it, teases the man at sweeper with the chance, who neither goes for the catch, nor saves the boundary. 99 it is..

OT

Ahmed to Amla, 1 run, so very delicate. So very typical. And so very predictable. That #26 for the mighty Hash. Gets there with his staple diet, a dab on the slower cutter to third man

6

to de Kock, SIX, the partnership between de Kock and Amla is now, goes slogging. And connects right off the middle. Is bored of the conventional shots and sits down after his shuffle across his stumps, and swings the bat with a bit of a top-edge to strike the boundary cushions at fine leg on the full. What's more - this is now the highest opening partnership by a South African pair

OT

to de Kock, 1 run, an easing punch to long-on, staying up on the bounce. His own 150, and also the highest individual score at Kimberly..there are records every ball

4

Ahmed to de Kock, FOUR, with disdain now. The hands extend as he waits for the short one to rise and lofts it over mid-wicket. South Africa into needing single digits now

4

to de Kock, FOUR, finishes just the way he started. And the way he played through the middle. Gets a length ball in the slot and whacks it away, in the air, over mid-wicket. Flush on the ropes. Oh no..that's a millimeter inside. I take back my words. He almost does it

4

to de Kock, FOUR, and he officially does it again. Full, on the pads and begging to be flicked. Quinton obliges, whisking it through mid-wicket. That's as comprehensive as things could be

4

Paterson to Kayes, FOUR, edged and four. It's have been an easy catch if third slip had been in place. This back of a length delivery decks away after pitching around off, Kayes sticks his bat out and gets a thick outside edge that flies through the cordon

4

Paterson to Liton Das, FOUR, shot! Liton Das picked the length of this short ball quickly and nailed the pull past the man at mid-on. He quickly went back onto the back foot to execute the stroke. Off the middle of the bat and the ball raced away

4

Paterson to Liton Das, FOUR, second boundary for Liton Das. Loads of width outside off and Das latches onto it. Sees the ball and hammers it past a diving backward point fiedler

4

Paterson to Liton Das, FOUR, wow! Liton Das nailed the straight-drive there. It was overpitched alright, but it still had to be put away and Das does it in style. He comes forward and offers his straight bat to drive it past mid-off. High elbow and the 23-year-old poses for the photographs

4

Paterson to Liton Das, FOUR, not a full-blooded shot, but Liton Das will get a boundary. Short ball, Das short-arm-pulls it behind square on the on-side. That's the shorter part of the ground and fine leg had no chance to stop that

4

Paterson to Kayes, FOUR, what was that from Kayes? He looks to hoick a length ball that was angling across him. A thick outside edge and the ball flies over the slip cordon and goes into the third man in a flash. Paterson has a smile on his face

4

Paterson to Kayes, FOUR, four more. Paterson bowls it short on leg, Kayes moves across to pull and gets some wood on it. That's enough as it went very fine into the fine leg fence

W

to Liton Das, out Caught by du Plessis!! Edged and taken! The umpires want to check if it has been taken cleanly. Softy Signal is OUT. Fair delivery. Faf has caught it cleanly and Liton Das has to walk back. Oh, wait the big screen flashes NOT OUT. Looks like, the TV umpire has pressed the wrong button. It was a good length delivery that seamed away a bit. Das was forward to defend and got an outside edge that was dipping as it was going towards second slip. Skipper du Plessis has one of the best pair of hands in international cricket. He crouched and grasped a low catch. Liton Das is OUT. Liton Das c du Plessis b 21(29) [4s-4]

D

to Kayes, no run, dropped? Imran was animated. Another flat ball, Kayes looks to reverse sweep and misses. Oh, wait, looks like there was a glove on it. Oh, yes. Definite glove. de Kock couldn't hold onto it and it will go down as a chance. The ball did lob uo off the keeper's gloves, but fell safely in the vacant leg-slip position

4

to Kayes, FOUR, short and wide outside off, asking to be punished. Kayes hops and elevates it over backward point. Easily put away

6

to Kayes, SIX, shot! bangs it in short, but there is no venom behind it. Kayes gets into a solid position and hammers the pull over mid-wicket

4

to Shakib, FOUR, sharp bouncer, Shakib looks to hook and gets a top edge that runs away to fine leg

W

to Kayes, out Caught by de Kock!! Gone! Not the greatest of the deliveries from . But, he'll get a wicket. It was a short of a length delivery down leg, Kayes looks to tickle it and gets a faint nick on it. Easy one for de Kock and Kayes has to walk back. Disappointing end. Kayes c de Kock b 31(43) [4s-4 6s-1]

4

to Rahim, FOUR, that's a poor ball and Rahim punishes him. Short and wide outside off asking to be hit. Rahim waits for it and slashes it wide of cover

4

to Rahim, FOUR, top shot! High-elbow, straight bat and hit through the line. Result - a boundary. Slower ball on a fuller length, Rahim comes forward and across to meet it with a straight bat and send it down the ground. He didn't over-hit it and got it off the middle. No chance for the mid-on fielder to stop it

4

to Rahim, FOUR, Rahim dances down the ground and flat-bats the pull down the ground wide of the non-striker. It was a shortish ball, but Rahim was not perplexed by that

4

to Shakib, FOUR, slow bouncer, Shakib has ample time to wait for it and pull it behind square on the on-side. isn't happy with himself there

4

to Rahim, FOUR, pushed through flatter, Rahim walks across, gets low and brooms it over backward square leg. A couple of bounces and into the fence

4

to Rahim, FOUR, now the cheek. Gets a full toss, the slider from getting wrong, big time. And finds it reverse-swept powerfully, behind point

W

to Shakib, out Caught by Amla!! Here's on the run. The marathon. Long distance. The googly turns out too good for Shakib. Perfectly tossed up on middle, draws Shakib out on the expansive drive. Decides to go straight down without quite accounting for the turn or reaching the pitch of the delivery. Rips away, gets the outer edge and flies to slip. Oh he's thrown away this start. Shakib c Amla b 29(45) [4s-2]

4

Paterson to Rahim, FOUR, ruins all the good work he'd done with the earlier four balls. Does it with a short, wide one, giving Mushy just the release he'd wanted. Leaps up, airborne to smack the cut square

6

Paterson to Rahim, SIX, whoa. In the midst of plays and misses, Rahim pulls out a stunner. Dances out, throws his arms out at the width and carves it over the covers. What's more - that's a fifty

OT

to Mahmudullah, leg byes, 1 run, another appeal, and this time, in what looks like an overcorrection for the non-use of DRS earlier, Faf decides to take this one upstairs. Mahmudullah was down on the paddle sweep and did well to plant his front leg well outside the line of off. And despite the googly coming back in to take a portion of the thigh pad, the impact was always going to be outside off

4

to Mahmudullah, FOUR, now the drill. Takes on the bait with all the air thrown up on this one outside off and powers it through the covers. Ah, that backlift

4

to Mahmudullah, FOUR, drags it down. Horribly. Quickly on a swaying back arch is Mahmudullah, timing the pants off it in a punch through the covers

6

to Mahmudullah, SIX, take that. That's some muscle. Charges down, takes the short one head on with a full-blooded thump to flat bat it over cow corner

4

to Mahmudullah, FOUR, the genuine edge. And the customary boundary. Mahmudullah, without much of a clue hangs his bat out to defend, and eekes out the fat outside edge to run away through the vacant cordon

4

to Rahim, FOUR, cheeky and effective. sarts one on leg, Rahim moves across, gets low and scoops it fine. There was a man in the deep - fine leg. But the placement was superb. He hit it very fine

W

to Mahmudullah, out Caught by Miller!! One slog too many. But very smartly pulls his length back on spotting the move down. Mahmudullah cannot resist, swipes his bat out, gets the top edge and cover, pouches up the skier, whose 100th ODI only gets sweeter. And Bangladesh meanwhile lose a promising stand, threatening to break lose. Mahmudullah c Miller b 26(27) [4s-3 6s-1]

4

to Rahim, FOUR, a nice sitter. Rahman stays fairly deep in the crease, lets the bounce get on nicely and swivels to pull it away..past the reach of the man at square leg this time

6

Paterson to Rahim, SIX, just in the slot. And the ball is in the crowd. Join the dots. Boy, that's some swing..of the bat. Clears his front leg and tonks it well over cow corner

4

to Rahim, FOUR, now some cheek. Into the 90s with the reverse. The line starts outside off and doesn't matter that it was the googly. Once he got enough meat, it was always going only one way. He now has the highest score by a Bangladeshi in South Africa

4

to Rahim, FOUR, more of the innovations. Turns left-handed, but keeps the grip conventional and slogs the sweep. Nervous nineties, eh?

4

Paterson to Sabbir Rahman, FOUR, misses the mark. Dishes out an overcooked half volley and Rahman, hangs back to hammer it square. The trick - the bat face opening, late, very late

6

Paterson to Sabbir Rahman, SIX, overcomopensates. Overcooked to a full toss. And Sabbir won't be complaining. Stays up, swings and slogs it over mid-wicket..the grass banks have some work to do apart from their cheering

W

to Sabbir Rahman, out Caught by Dane Paterson!! Slices his way to his doom. follows up his brute with a wide yorker at 140.7kph, Sabbir throws his bat out at the width, carving it uppishly. Only to find extra cover manning the fence. A decent cameo, that could've been so much more. Sabbir Rahman c Dane Paterson b 19(21) [4s-1 6s-1]

OT

to Rahim, 2 runs, charges, charges back, stretches and gets the landmark. Take a bow li'l man. The first Bangladeshi batsman to get a century against South Africa. Walks down, chips it past a diving AB at cover and then the running shoes

4

to Nasir Hossain, FOUR, throws it wide. Never right, especially with deep cover just having come back in. goes back to his slower variations, only giving out all the width for a change. Slapped, with all the muscle and through the crowded cover circle

4

to Nasir Hossain, FOUR, 141kph, on the move again, and on his slapping ways. The shorter one keeps going across and Hossain lays into it with a flat drill, just wide of sweeper

W

to Nasir Hossain, out Caught by Amla!! Cut out before he cuts loose. Hossain gets on the downward charge again, just that follows him with the one that decks back in to cramp him up. A tied up pull follows, in the air and picks out the only fielder at mid-wicket. To perfection. Nasir Hossain c Amla b 11(8) [4s-2]

4

to Rahim, FOUR, ruins the over. Marches on in charge. Sits down anticipating the yorker, gets underneath and laps it away. He's playing the field, given that fine leg is inside the circle

4

to Saifuddin, FOUR, first international boundary and nothing streaky about this one. Sits down, on a knee and carves it with all the muscle through extra cover

6

to Saifuddin, SIX, go fetch. looks to soften him with the bouncer, not this time. Saifuddin stands his ground and takes it head on, pulling it off the front foot. Way over deep square leg

W

to Saifuddin, out Caught by Dane Paterson!! refuses to relent. Digs in another short one, has it pulled again, only off the top edge this time and mid-wicket cleans up. Saifuddin moves away, generates room, but the brute of a bouncer that this is gains enough altitude to avoid the meat. Not the edge though. Saifuddin c Dane Paterson b 16(11) [4s-1 6s-1]
