View dismissal GC Smith* lbw b Khan 0 2 3 0 0 0.00
0.3 GODDIM! Swinging in, it straightens on Smith who comes down the track and that's absolutely plumb. Dreadful, careless shot from Smith. That's it from me. It's over to the venerable Sriram Veera whose office has now regained power. For now. 0/1
View dismissal LE Bosman b Sreesanth 0 15 2 0 0 0.00
3.1 Cleaned him up! Yorker! Sreesanth pings the blockhole and Bosman, caught in a tangle with his feet movement - his left foot was pressed a bit too across- and his desperate wave of the bat didn't make contact with the cherry. 6/2
View dismissal JH Kallis c †Dhoni b Kumble 49 78 62 9 0 79.03
17.1 and he strikes first ball! slightly short and this one went straight on after hitting the deck - Kallis looking to chop it away off the back-foot ends up with a faint edge and Dhoni held on well to fairly hard chance. 75/3
HH Gibbs not out 93 190 123 8 0 75.60
View dismissal AB de Villiers lbw b Kumble 13 11 8 0 1 162.50
19.2 Revenge! Traps him in front with a slider. Landed on the off and middle, on a length, slided in and beat the intended sweep shot and rapped him plumb in front. 93/4
View dismissal MV Boucher lbw b Sehwag 29 58 49 2 0 59.18
34.6 got'im! fuller in length, pitched close to the off stump line and turning in - Boucher swipes across the line and is trapped plumb in front, easy decision for the umpire. South Africa five down 154/5
View dismissal JM Kemp c Sehwag b Tendulkar 0 2 1 0 0 0.00
35.2 golden duck! that's cricket for you - 100 in the previous match, 0 in the next. Fraction short and close to the off stump line, Kemp attacks the ball in an attempt to pierce the off side ring, fails to keep it down and the ball goes straight to Sehwag at point 155/6
View dismissal SM Pollock run out (Kumble/†Dhoni) 37 34 43 2 2 86.04
46.3 from Khan, pulled away at one bounce to the fielder at midwicket - Pollock takes off for a suicidal run but Gibbs stands his ground. Kumble's shy at the stumps misses the stumps, but Dhoni running in from behind grabs the ball with both hands and punches the stumps - Pollock is inches away from the crease but that's enough for the tv-umpire to press the button-of-death. 216/7
View dismissal AJ Hall run out (Karthik/†Dhoni) 13 13 9 0 1 144.44
49.3 from Sreesanth, driven away to wide long-on. Hall is bit late off the blocks - Karthik's throw comes in at the striker's end - Hall is home, wait he has forgotten to ground his bat. They go upstairs and the red light flashes. 240/8

View dismissal W Jaffer c Smith b Ntini 10 20 20 2 0 50.00
5.4 Gotcha! Loose drive from Jaffer. Slightly short in length, outside the offstump, Jaffer goes back and across, tries to squaredrive it ,away from his body, nicks it to first slip. 23/1
View dismissal V Sehwag* c Bosman b Ntini 18 38 22 3 0 81.81
9.3 Big wicket. Sehwag is back in the hutch. Full, straight on the middle, Sehwag tries to whip it across the line, ends up scooping it in the air, to the right of midwicket where Bosman takes a few steps before diving full length to take a very fine catch. India rocked by the seamers. Again. 38/3
View dismissal SR Tendulkar c †Boucher b Pollock 1 4 3 0 0 33.33
6.2 Sachin falls. Pollock again takes him out. Well outside the offstump, Tendulkar is bit unsure whether to leave or play, ends up doing both as he tries to get out of a shot at the last minute but by then it was too late. The ball had kissed the outside edge and Boucher fell low to his right to take a smart catch. Indian batting again in doldrums. Any one surprised? 24/2
View dismissal M Kaif run out (Bosman/Pollock) 10 29 22 2 0 45.45
12.4 Pollock to Karthik, A run out adds to the Indian misery. Karthik pushes a length-delivery on the middle and leg to the on side, gives a start, stops but by then the Kaif express had rushed along at a manic pace. BOsman, at squareleg, makes the stop, runs towards the non-striker's end, under-arms a throw to Pollock who whips off the bails. Meanwhile at the other end, Karthik gets into the crease first. Kaif, who was looking pretty good out there, is gone. 39/4
View dismissal KD Karthik c Nel b Kemp 17 74 38 2 0 44.73
24.1 Slices to his demise. Full and outside the offstump and rather than crashing it through covers, Karthik ends up slicing his drive, in the air, to thirdman. Another one is down, four to go. 109/6
View dismissal MS Dhoni c sub (AG Prince) b Nel 26 36 21 4 1 123.80
19.5 Gone..Dhoni falls slashing straight to thirdman. Short of length, outside the offstump, Dhoni hops back and upper-cuts it, ala Sehwag, over the slips and it flies high and straight to Prince. 82/5
IK Pathan not out 47 94 55 4 2 85.45
View dismissal AB Agarkar c Hall b Kemp 6 19 14 1 0 42.85
28.2 Agarkar too walks back, drawn by the warm nostalgic feelings for the place and by two sweet little words: "Dressing Room" - harmless delivery outside the off stump, Agarkar goes for the lofted drive and the ball goes straight to Andrew Hall at sweeper cover. Three more to go. 128/7
View dismissal Z Khan c †Boucher b Kallis 11 17 12 2 0 91.66
31.1 Kallis too gets one to his name - short of a good length delivery, pitched outside the off stump and shaping away a touch. Too good a delivery for Zaheer Khan who has a poke at it and the edge flies straight to Boucher behind the stumps 145/8
View dismissal A Kumble c Smith b Pollock 2 14 14 0 0 14.28
34.3 another brut of a bouncer, pitched outside the off stump and nipping back in sharply - Kumble fends at it awkwardly and the ball lobs up off the edge - Smith at first slip moves across to his left and takes a comfortable catch 150/9
View dismissal S Sreesanth c de Villiers b Kemp 3 19 13 0 0 23.07
38.1 And the inevitable. Short ball on the middle and off stump line, Sreesanth makes room and cuts hard, ball clips the shoulder of the bat and goes straight to de Villiers at cover. Sreesanth straightaway looked at the square leg umpire in an attempt to let him know that it was too high but by then the finger had gone up and the ice-box was being rushed out. 163/10
