Over 14.1 Marco Jansen bowls a good length delivery to Mayank Agarwal, out Caught by Verreynne!!  Pushed across the right-hander, the length was full for the drive and Mayank couldn't resist, went with hard hands on the shot - gets undone by the bounce and edges it through to Verreynne

Over 23.3 Duanne Olivier bowls a good length delivery to Cheteshwar Pujara, no run,  out Caught by Bavuma!!  Pujara was pressing forward, was doing so with low hands as well - can't counter the bounce, the ball popped off the shoulder of the bat and lobs a simple catch to Bavuma, jogging in from gully.

Over 23.4 Duanne Olivier bowls a good length delivery to Ajinkya Rahane, no run, out Caught by Keegan Petersen!! Rahane thinks he needs to play at that, he did so with so much tentativeness as well - just hung his bat out to dry, feeds a thick edge to third slip's right and Petersen isn't dropping those.

Over 38.4 Kagiso Rabada bowls a good length delivery to Hanuma Vihari,  out Caught by van der Dussen!! Hanuma Vihari looks to fend it away and ends up getting an inside edge that lobs towards forward short leg. The fielder stationed there dives to his left, sticks his left hand out and he has grabbed it.

Over 45.5 Marco Jansen bowls a good length delivery to Lokesh Rahul, out Caught by Rabada!!  This pitch clearly has a fair bit of uneven bounce, and when you go hooking, you never really know. KL tries, gets a top-edge and Rabada does well to run forward, dive and get under at fine leg

Over 53.4 Marco Jansen bowls a good length delivery to Rishabh Pant, out Caught by Verreynne!! Pant was late in getting the bat down, gets clear inside edge and Verreynne does the rest, diving across to his left. 

Over 54.6 Duanne Olivier bowls a good length delivery to Shardul Thakur,  out Caught by Keegan Petersen!! Shardul was looking to steer it square on the off-side, instead handed out catching practice to Petersen at gully. Sort of catches that you take before the start of a day's play, he went reverse cupped and held on. 

Over 59.3 Kagiso Rabada bowls a good length delivery to Mohammed Shami, out Caught and Bowled!! Shami will feel slightly unlucky here, was a half-volley and he did drill it back to the bowler at pace. A slightly less athlestic bowler might have dropped it.

Over 60.5 Marco Jansen bowls a good length delivery to Ravichandran Ashwin, out Caught by Keegan Petersen!! Backs away to play the upper cut, but completely miscues it as Marco Jansen goes short. It balloons up towards point and Petersen settles underneath to complete a rather easy catch.

Over 63.1 Kagiso Rabada bowls a good length delivery to Mohammed Siraj, out Caught by Verreynne!!  Siraj who tries to glance it away gets a faint tickle that has been taken by the wicket-keeper.
