Darren Sammy bowled the 13th over. He bowled one very wide outside off-stump and AB de Villiers reached out and got some bat onto the ball as it raced away for a four towards third-man. Irfan Pathan came to bowl the 14th over. The first delivery was full and wide and de Villiers struck the ball over deep extra-cover for a six. Irfan then bowled one short and wide and de Villiers cut the ball in the air towards backward-point. The fielder positioned there could only get his fingertips on it and dropped a difficult catch.
