View dismissal ND McKenzie b Shahadat Hossain 226 518 388 28 3 58.24
123.6 He has dragged it on. McKenzie falls on the 388th delivery. The reverse swing did the trick. It landed outside off and tilted in with the shiny side, McKenzie tried to chop it to third man, as he has done so successfully the whole innings, but this one reversed in a bit more and caught the inside edge. 514 for 2. Shahadat, after claiming the wicket, went across and congratulated the batsman. 514/2
View dismissal GC Smith* b Abdur Razzak 232 406 277 33 1 83.75
94.3 After 414 minutes of run orgy and two runs after being part of the history, Smith is gone. Flighted full and straight, Smith went down on his knee, looking to sweep it but didn't connect. Cleaned up. 415/1
View dismissal HM Amla lbw b Shahadat Hossain 38 118 87 4 0 43.67
125.3 Shahadat and his reverse swing is doing the trick. Another one full and it tails in late, Amla plants his left leg across and tries to bring his bat around it. Too late. Trapped in front. 515/3
JH Kallis not out 39 146 120 0 0 32.50
View dismissal AG Prince b Shahadat Hossain 2 8 3 0 0 66.66
127.1 Another fatal drag! Statutory warning should accompany Shahadat: Don't take a drag! It was just short of length, angling away from Prince who went for a cut but got the inside edge. 519/4
View dismissal AB de Villiers b Shakib Al Hasan 1 8 4 0 0 25.00
128.6 Bowled him! Done in by the skidder. It landed on a length, around off and middle and went straight on, de Villiers had a very poor defensive waft at it and is cleaned up. Bangladesh are having a great second session. 524/5
View dismissal MV Boucher c Shakib Al Hasan b Mohammad Rafique 21 105 83 1 0 25.30
157.6 Rafique gets his 99th and its Boucher who falls! He tossed it up a bit more and outside off stump, Boucher launched himself into a cover drive but Rafique had slowed up the pace and Boucher couldn't keep his drive down. Caught at covers and Rafique is a relieved man. Ashraful rushes to congratulate him. Everyone huddles around Rafique. 579/6
View dismissal RJ Peterson c Junaid Siddique b Mohammad Rafique 4 14 7 1 0 57.14
161.1 That's his 100th Test wicket. Congrats Rafique! He can't believe the way it came. Freaky. He floated it full and outside off stump, Peterson went for an expansive off drive, got an edge and it bounded off Rahim's left thigh to first slip where its held. Rafique turns around to appeal, then clutches his head in relief and is soon surrounded by his team-mates. This is his last Test and one feared he might not get his 100th wicket but he has pulled it off. And South Africa have declared. 583/7

View dismissal Tamim Iqbal c de Villiers b Steyn 14 42 29 3 0 48.27
8.6 Tamim is well and truly set up. Steyn bowlsfull, outside off. The ball is moving away and Tamim slashes once again. This time he gets an edge and de Villiers takes a low and tough catch at third slip 39/1
View dismissal Junaid Siddique c †Boucher b Steyn 18 60 39 4 0 46.15
12.2 Gone! Steyn picks another wicket. Would you believe it? That's his 100th Test wicket and it's just his 20th Test match. Full in length, outside the off stump, shaping away a touch and that induces a loose drive outside off. What a strike rate Steyn has. Fab. 49/2
View dismissal Shahriar Nafees c Smith b Steyn 69 161 98 12 0 70.40
42.5 loss of concentration.... Steyn pitches it just a shade outside the off stump, Nafees is drawn forward but he fails to cover the line as a thick outside edge goes straight to Smith at first slip 176/5
View dismissal Mohammad Ashraful* c †Boucher b Steyn 0 2 1 0 0 0.00
12.3 Two in two. Steyn's strike rate keeps getting better. No 101. Fast and furious bouncer, Ashraful stabs it and the ball evades the ungainly fend and bounds off the gloves and bobs up for Boucher to hold. They appeal, Bucknor remains impassive as ever, they continue to appeal and slowly the fatal finger goes up. 49/3
View dismissal Abdur Razzak c Prince b Peterson 33 88 64 6 0 51.56
31.2 goes for one shot too many, Peterson gives it plenty of air outside off, Razzak tries to loft over the on side but gets a top edge towards point, Prince runs backwards a little and takes the catch 118/4
Aftab Ahmed retired hurt 21 69 45 2 0 46.66
45.2 from Kallis, Ouch! Adftab goes for the pull off a short ball and ends up top edging it onto his helmet, in fact the ball strikes him in the gap between the helmet and the visor and he's in serious pain. The physio's out and all the South Africans look concerned. Aftab was seen clutching his head and the impact looks fairly serious. He's being stretchered off the field. He appears conscious though. Very unfortunate for Bangladesh. He has retired hurt and Mushfiqur Rahim walks out 176/5
View dismissal Shakib Al Hasan c †Boucher b Ntini 40 108 75 4 0 53.33
66.5 Ntini strikes twice.... bangs it in just short of a length outside off, Shakib decides to free his arms by cutting square of the wicket on the off side, he's cramped for room and gets a thick edge to Boucher. The change of attack works for Ntini 241/7
View dismissal Mushfiqur Rahim c †Boucher b Ntini 15 76 56 2 0 26.78
62.6 Ntini makes him play and look at the result..... pitches on a good length outside off and gets it to nip back in slightly, Rahim pokes at it but fails to cover the line, Boucher takes the outside edge easily to his right 232/6
View dismissal Mohammad Rafique c Smith b Ntini 10 24 14 1 0 71.42
68.4 Ntini's on a roll here.... pitches it up outside the off stump, Rafique stands outside his leg stump and goes for a flashy uppish drive away from his body, he ends up getting a thick edge to Boucher who leaps up and deflects off his gloves it to Smith at first slip 246/8
View dismissal Mashrafe Mortaza c †Boucher b Ntini 1 19 9 0 0 11.11
70.4 that's the end of the innings.... pitches it up outside the offstump, Mortaza goes for the expansiv drive through the covers and gets a thick outside edge to Boucher. Aftab will not come out to bat so that terminates the innings. South Africa have enforced the follow-on 259/9
