View dismissal SE Marsh c M Morkel b Steyn 13 14 9 3 0 144.44

View dismissal DA Warner c M Morkel b Ntini 1 9 7 0 0 14.28
1.5 chipped straight to mid-on! Ntini continues to mix up his deliveries well, slipping one in full and straighter and swinging it back into Warner, who goes for a flick but finds Morne Morkel stationed inside the circle, so that is an early breakthrough for Ntini in his first over 9/1
View dismissal RT Ponting* c McKenzie b Ntini 63 87 70 9 0 90.00

19.2 lbw! Botha tosses it up on the stumps, purchases some drift, Hussey gets across to paddle it around the corner, but there's no bat on that and after an imploring appeal the umpire raises the finger of fate 110/3
