Steyn to Mashrafe Mortaza, no run, appeal for a catch behind. Full in length, just outside the off stump, tried to opend the bat-face and run it to third man. Was there a little nick? Hmm.. The bowler didn't appeal initially and only joined in after de Villiers appealed. It appears as if it went off the face of the bat.
