  Australia 1st innings R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal ML Hayden c Duminy b Ntini 8 31 17 1 0 47.05
7.2 caught! Loose drive from Hayden and he's fallen at his fortress! He moves forward to drive a good length ball which moves away from him a touch, he slices it in the air straight to Duminy at point who takes a pretty simple catch, a hush falls over the tens of thousands of fans at the MCG 21/1
View dismissal SM Katich b Steyn 54 153 109 6 0 49.54
33.6 bowled him! Steyn pitches the ball on a good length and angles it into the left-hander, Katich moves across and tries to drive on the up through the off side, the angle into him forces the inside edge and the ball thuds into the stumps off the bat, South Africa have struck just when Australia were getting away 128/2
View dismissal RT Ponting* c Amla b Harris 101 197 126 10 1 80.15
51.2 caught! In the last over before tea! Ponting lunges forward at one that angles into him, he gets an inside edge on to the pad and it bobs up to Amla to short leg who takes an easy catch, what a boost for South Africa 184/4
View dismissal MEK Hussey c †Boucher b Steyn 0 16 9 0 0 0.00
37.3 caught! Hussey was in two minds whether to leave the ball or not, he began to push forward to a good length ball just outside off stump but then decided to lift his bat out of the way, he was late in doing so and the ball clipped the bottom of his bat and went through to Boucher who took an easy catch 143/3
MJ Clarke not out 88 330 208 4 1 42.30
View dismissal A Symonds c Kallis b Morkel 27 56 55 3 0 49.09
66.1 gone! that was short outside off, Symonds tries to cut that powerfully towards point, gets a thick outside edge and Kallis dives well to his right at second slip to pouch onto a sharp chance. Australia five down now and McKenzie can breathe easy 223/5
View dismissal BJ Haddin c Smith b Ntini 40 88 71 5 0 56.33
88.3 edged and caught! Ntini has struck a vital late blow! He pitched it on a good length outside off and got the ball to straighten off the pitch, Haddin got on the front foot and drove away from his body, the ball flew off the outside edge towards Smith at first slip who held a sharp catch towards his right 277/6
View dismissal B Lee c Kallis b Steyn 21 33 21 5 0 100.00
95.2 but the fun is over for Lee, courtesy a sharp catch from Kallis at second slip! Steyn comes back after going for a boundary, pitching the ball up and inviting the drive, gets the ball to move, Lee doesn't play it well at all and gets a thick outside edge to Kallis who cups it in front of his face 322/7
View dismissal MG Johnson b Steyn 0 3 3 0 0 0.00
95.5 see, thats all you need to do, Steyn, its simple ... pitch it on the stumps! The change of angle eventually works after two wayward deliveries to Johnson, who gets one on a near-perfect length, watches it swing a shade, doesn't defend in time and loses his stumps 326/8
View dismissal NM Hauritz c Smith b Steyn 12 29 21 2 0 57.14
101.5 edged and it doesn't carry, or does it? Steyn draws a regulation thick outside edge off the bat as Hauritz plays off the back foot, which starts dipping on Smith at first slip as Boucher doesn't go for it ... the ball hits the fingers on the full, sort of jamming them, Smith is not sure and so the two umpires get together and after some communication with the television umpire it is decided that Smith took it cleanly ... still some confusion but Hauritz has to go, I saw replays a couple times and it looked a very tough call to make .. it looked like Smith jammed his fingers under the ball in time, though he was quick to say he wasn't sure 352/9
View dismissal PM Siddle c de Villiers b Kallis 19 54 49 1 0 38.77
113.4 nicked to second slip and thats the end of the innings! Kallis ends Siddle's impressive resistance with another shortish delivery which squares up Siddle, who edges into de Villiers' lap, so no century for a stranded Michael Clarke 394/10

View dismissal GC Smith* c †Haddin b Siddle 62 166 113 6 0 54.86
37.6 edged and taken! Siddle dismisses Smith by following up with a half-volley, real wide of off stump and Smith admonishes himself for falling to such a poor delivery, nicking to Haddin 126/4
View dismissal ND McKenzie b Siddle 0 7 5 0 0 0.00
1.4 he's bowled him! Siddle succeeds in the first over, justifying Ponting's move to hand him the new ball ahead of Johnson, McKenzie's woeful form continues as he plays all over one pitching on length and deviating fractionally back into him, he was rooted to the crease and playing down the wrong line and the ball hit the top of off stump 1/1
View dismissal HM Amla c Symonds b Johnson 19 35 30 1 0 63.33
8.3 oh well held Symonds! Johnson gives Amla room outside off stump and he crashes the cut rather forcefully but Symonds intercepts it at backward point in front of his chest 39/2
View dismissal JH Kallis c †Haddin b Hauritz 26 81 53 2 0 49.05
26.4 massive strike on the stroke of tea! Kallis perishes to the sweep, lobbing the ball up off bat, glove, then forearm and offering the dolliest of catches to Haddin and Australia celebrate 102/3
View dismissal AB de Villiers b Siddle 7 57 51 0 0 13.72
41.5 he's on a roll is Siddle, and he's being mobbed in the middle! He pitches on a length, jags it back ever so little and, like McKenzie, de Villiers is beaten for pace and hears the ball clip off stump, while Siddle goes red-faced in exaggerated appeal for the lbw only to realize he's bowled the batsman when his team-mates converge on him 132/5
View dismissal JP Duminy c Siddle b Hauritz 166 448 340 18 0 48.82
152.6 and he's been caught! Duminy tries to sweep once again from outside off but gets a top edge that lobs up towards Siddle at short fine leg, he's gone for 166, I'll stick my neck out and say it's probably the best innings he'll ever play! 459/10
View dismissal MV Boucher c Hussey b Hauritz 3 22 15 0 0 20.00
46.4 and he goes sweeping! Hauritz picks up a second wicket with a batsman perishing to this shot, though Boucher's attempt was far more attacking than what Kallis had tried to play, he gave the ball a mighty thump but straight to Hussey at square leg who intercepted it 141/6
View dismissal M Morkel b Johnson 21 45 39 4 0 53.84
57.1 and he cleans up Morkel first ball! A punchy innings comes to an end with a Johnson specialty, the full attempted yorker, drawing the thinnest of inside-edges onto off stump 184/7
View dismissal PL Harris c Johnson b Hussey 39 74 67 4 0 58.20
77.5 caught! Harris plays one attacking shot too many! He lines Hussey up and lofts the ball over mid-on, he hasn't timed it well though and Johnson runs back from mid-on and takes a well-judged catch while looking over his shoulder 251/8
View dismissal DW Steyn b Siddle 76 238 191 9 1 39.79

15.3 he's gone! The MCG is stunned! Morkel gets into the wickets column with a ripper of a short ball, banged in on the stumps to unsettle Hussey, hopping on his crease, the ball rears up and takes his helmet before it balloons up for a simple catch for Amla at midwicket, South Africa celebrate but Hussey and Ponting are livid ... a poor call indeed from Aleem Dar, as ball missed the bat by some distance 49/3
View dismissal MJ Clarke c McKenzie b Steyn 29 113 79 4 0 36.70
43.1 a sharp catch to a short ball! This pretty much sums up Clarke's innings, as he gets back and reaches out to slap a short and wide ball off the lower half of the bat to short cover, where McKenzie dives to his left and cups the catch 145/4
