Rabada to Warner in Over 03

3.4 = Rabada to Warner, FOUR runs, too full, rifled to the cover boundary! Warner climbs into a cover drive, low in his stance and using 141kph to his own advantage
3.5 =Rabada to Warner, FOUR runs, oh, even better, a murderous scyth past extra cover for four! This wasn’t a half-volley but he dispatched it via first-class delivery to the ropes
3.6 =Rabada to Warner, FOUR runs, skelped off the pads, three in a row! Morkel gamely gives chase but he can’t reel it in, Warner lets his bat do the talking in his battle with Rabada – this could become a proper brawl (within the confines of the Laws, of course!)
Rabada to Warner in Over 05
5.1 =Rabada to Warner, SIX runs, digs the ball in short… and Warner hurls his bat, KABOOM! over fine leg! That has gone miles, high up into the stands – someone is going to have to fetch it!

5. 2 =Rabada to Warner, (no ball) FOUR runs, FETCH THAT! Five boundaries in a row for Warner off Rabada! Just a touch of width and he slashes it through backward point, and you can sense KG’s temperature rising!…………….Rabada had overstepped too… Literally, not figuratively this time

5.3 =Rabada to Warner, OUTbowled hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiim! Rabada lands the decisive blow, up off the canvas and demolishing off stump! This enthralling duel is ended by Rabada slicing through Warner’s tentative defence and sending the stump pinwheeling back. An extraordinary innings from Warner, struck on the arm and then responding with a flurry of boundaries before being run through, bowled off stump for the third time in the series
