Played at Adelaide Oval
22,23,24,25,26 November 2012 (5-day match)
  • Overs 1-50
  • Overs 51-100
  • Overs 101-150

Kallis to Cowan, OUT, Kallis has broken through! Lbw, or is that caught and bowled? Kallis fired in the yorker and Cowan, who was standing outside his crease had to hurry to dig it out. I thought it hit his bat and replays seem to indicate the ball lobbed off Cowan's bat and back to Kallis. It might have hit the toe as well, and if so that's plumb. Lbw and caught and bowled, but the lbw was first. Now there's a change in decision and it's a caught and bowled. But I think it hit the boot first. The rules say that a caught will over-ride an lbw. the ball shot up off the toe and lobbed back to the bowler, it hit high on the bat.

EJM Cowan c & b Kallis 10 (44m 29b 1x4 0x6) SR: 34.48

Australia 43/1   DA Warner 32* (34b 7x4)   JH Kallis 0.3-0-0-1

Morkel to Quiney, OUT, caught at first slip! Quiney's gone for a duck. Morkel pitched it on a good length just outside off and angled it into the left-hander, Quiney moved back and across to defend from his crease and got an outside edge. Smith took a low catch at first slip. And just like that, this start has turned around

RJ Quiney c Smith b Morkel 0 (9m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Australia 44/2   DA Warner 32* (35b 7x4)   M Morkel 6-2-21-1

Kallis to Ponting, OUT, bowled him! Kallis has produced a ripping ball. He bowled a full ball which Ponting chose to defend from his crease instead of coming forward. The ball swerved away from the right-hander very late and beat the outside edge to hit of stump, Ponting fell to the pitch after he was beaten. He was completely squared up and beaten. It shaped into him at first and then swung away

RT Ponting b Kallis 4 (6m 3b 1x4 0x6) SR: 133.33

Australia 55/3   DA Warner 39* (38b 8x4)   JH Kallis 2-1-11-2

Morkel to Warner, OUT, this time the edge has gone to slip! Warner goes after a post-lunch blitz and he gets applauded off Adelaide Oval. He stayed on the back foot and poked away from his body at a good length ball that pitched around off-stump line and angled across him from over the wicket. Smith was waiting at first slip

DA Warner c Smith b Morkel 119 (176m 112b 16x4 4x6) SR: 106.25

Australia 210/4   MJ Clarke 69* (77b 14x4)   M Morkel 12.2-2-77-2

Steyn to Hussey, OUT, and against all odds, Steyn has bowled Hussey and that will be stumps on the first day. Steyn pitched on a good length around off and the ball came back into the left-hander. Hussey was late in bringing his bat down and the ball hit the top of off stump. That will be small consolation for South Africa, they have received a severe hiding

MEK Hussey b Steyn 103 (209m 137b 9x4 4x6) SR: 75.18

Australia 482/5   MJ Clarke 224* (243b 39x4 1x6)   DW Steyn 17.1-1-62-1

Morkel to Clarke, OUT, it's over! stop the press, Michael Clarke has been dismissed, yes he has, that was pitched up by Morkel, Clarke stays in the crease as he looks to play that one, he misses and the ball cannons into middle stump, that ball angled in, more than Clarke expected, between bat and pad, end of a classic from Clarke, end of a nightmare for South Africa

MJ Clarke b Morkel 230 (345m 257b 40x4 1x6) SR: 89.49

Australia 494/6   MS Wade 5* (15b 1x4)   M Morkel 24.4-5-135-3

Morkel to Wade, OUT, Morkel strikes again, Wade hadn't scored in a while, he thought he could crash a length ball outside off through the cover, only gets a thin edge through to the keeper, Wade is distraught as he trudges off, knowing that there were some runs to be had on what remains a lovely batting track

MS Wade c †de Villiers b Morkel 6 (41m 28b 1x4 0x6) SR: 21.42

Australia 501/7   PM Siddle 6* (13b 1x4)   M Morkel 27-5-142-4

Kleinveldt to Siddle, OUT, Kleindveldt gets his first Test wicket, or does he? the no-ball check, that is tight, many replays needed to check whether it is behind the line, looks to be safe by mere millimetres, he is, Kleinveldt can finally savour a Test wicket, Siddle gets a healthy nick through to slip, that was a back of a length ball, Siddle might have been better off playing off the front foot, he hangs back in the crease, so Australia 21/3 on the day

PM Siddle c Smith b Kleinveldt 6 (30m 21b 1x4 0x6) SR: 28.57

Australia 503/8   JL Pattinson 2* (6b)   RK Kleinveldt 17.3-3-70-1

Morkel to Hilfenhaus, OUT, and Morkel completes his five-for, the short ball does the job, this was headed for the helmet, Hilfenhaus goes for the hook, top-edges it towards deep backward square leg, a duck for the Hilf, Australia 504 for 9, not quite going to plan for them today

BW Hilfenhaus c Kleinveldt b Morkel 0 (7m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Australia 504/9   JL Pattinson 3* (8b)   M Morkel 29-5-145-5

Steyn to Pattinson, OUT, the innings is over, Smith takes his fourth catch of the innings, takes it on the second chance after missing it on the first, Pattinson gets a thick edge as he looks to thump a fuller one from Steyn, so Australia all out for 550

JL Pattinson c Smith b Steyn 42 (53m 35b 4x4 2x6) SR: 120.00

Australia 550/10   NM Lyon 7* (17b 1x4)   DW Steyn 23.4-4-79-2
