A miss field by the wicket keeper allows the batsmen to get some runs but they try for one too many and the batsmen is run out.
A quick single is stolen by Rob to give Johan his first attempt at the ball
This brings up Rob's 50!
Johan gets one of his second ball. The strike is rotating nicely.
A change of bowler is singaled
113 for 3 after 21

Johan loses his wicket and Marius replaces him at 114 for 4. The Musketeers have not given up yet.
A big call for LBW sees the umpire totally uninterested.
As the shadows lengten over the field the internet signal sloowws down. Even the internet is tired after this hot day.
A wide is signaled
The fielders are still wide awake and are not giving any runs for free.
The bowler gives away another wide.
And another wide.
The bowler is back on target and the run is stopped.
A single
And another easy single
Another single brings up 120for 4.
10 runs required
A quick 4 brings up 124
