  Australia 1st innings R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal ML Hayden b Steyn 31 154 78 4 0 39.74
33.3 dragged on! Hayden's feet go nowhere fast as he flashes a booming drive to a fuller, swinging delivery and instead of the deep cover boundary he deposits the ball back onto his stumps in agony 109/3
View dismissal SM Katich c de Villiers b Kallis 47 65 52 5 0 90.38
12.6 edged and gone! Katich pushes at one leaving him outside off stump and, perhaps undone by the extra bounce, gives de Villiers at second slip some catching practice 62/1
View dismissal RT Ponting* c †Boucher b Morkel 0 2 1 0 0 0.00
13.5 well bowled and well held! Ponting goes first ball, pushing at a lovely delivery that pitches short of a length and hits the seam, angling back to clip the inner edge of the bat and Boucher moves to his left to collect the catch ... wow, thats a big blow and don't South Africa know it 63/2
View dismissal MEK Hussey c Kallis b Harris 30 117 99 5 0 30.30
40.6 and hes' got him pushing at one tossed up outside off stump, the ball turns and takes a simple edge to Kallis at first slip and Harris bursts into celebration 130/4
View dismissal MJ Clarke c & b Duminy 138 361 250 17 0 55.20
120.4 oh he's held him! Duminy strikes in his first over, and with a full toss as well, one that Clarke drives back in the air to his left and he pouches it as he falls over 379/7
View dismissal AB McDonald c †Boucher b Ntini 15 61 54 1 0 27.77
56.4 and the angle finally works for Ntini, who hits that short-of-length spot and draws the thinnest of edges from a leaden-footed McDonald's bat, who was simply sucked forward 162/5
View dismissal BJ Haddin b Steyn 38 97 79 4 1 48.10
81.4 timber! Steyn castles Haddin up with peach of a ball that hits a length, squares him up and swings away from the bat very late, and then cannons into the top of off stump, a real gem of a delivery to unsettle Australia late in the day, and snap a threatening partnership 237/6
View dismissal MG Johnson c Smith b Steyn 64 170 124 11 0 51.61
121.5 soft dismissal, and Steyn strikes quickly into his reappearance! He pitches full and wide, angles it away, and Johnson gets a thick edge into Smith's waiting palms at first slip 381/8
View dismissal NM Hauritz c Duminy b Harris 41 63 48 7 0 85.41
136.2 and he's gone, skipping down and swiping across the line to midwicket 445/10
View dismissal PM Siddle lbw b Harris 23 47 36 3 0 63.88
134.3 the fun ends as Harris gets into the action, flighting one on about middle stump, straightening it , and catching Siddle in front after he misses a big heave 440/9

View dismissal ND McKenzie lbw b Siddle 23 107 79 4 0 29.11
24.3 but thats out, McKenzie rooted to his crease and the ball nips back in off a length and hits him in front of middle and leg, Siddle and the rest go up and Billy Bowden raises the crooked finger, so the bowling change works for Australia and South Africa lose their first wicket 76/1
GC Smith* retired hurt 30 57 31 5 0 96.77
12.5 from Johnson, sits up more than expected - a crack, perhaps? - and hits Smith on one of the fingers of the left hand and he winces in pain, he was trying to withdraw the bottom hand but copped it, McKenzie keeps his cool and calls his captain for the scampered single 35/0
View dismissal HM Amla lbw b McDonald 51 192 134 7 0 38.05
59.2 maiden wicket for McDonald, and a good piece of bowling too! Pitches in line and slants back into beat the bat as Amla falls forward, thats a stump-to-stump delivery to undo him 166/4
View dismissal JH Kallis c Hayden b Johnson 37 64 55 6 0 67.27
40.3 again full and wide and this time the angle pays off because Kallis chases it with an expansive drive and edges straight to Hayden at first slip 131/2
View dismissal AB de Villiers run out (Johnson) 11 60 52 1 0 21.15
56.5 Bollinger to Amla, oh superb fielding! Amla again tucks the ball towards midwicket and de Villiers calls for the sharp single, Johnson runs after it from mid-on and nails a direct hit, a stunning throw 161/3
View dismissal JP Duminy lbw b Johnson 13 72 52 2 0 25.00
74.5 good delivery to get Duminy! After the short ball comes the fuller delivery, swinging in quite late from outside off stump and raps him on the back leg in line with the sticks 193/5
View dismissal MV Boucher b Siddle 89 233 170 8 1 52.35
120.5 the sound of timber! Siddle gets five at the SCG, his first such effort at this level, once more succeeding with the full and fast delivery, Boucher clips across the line and middle stumps is flattened 327/9
View dismissal M Morkel b Siddle 40 147 134 5 0 29.85
114.2 timber! Siddle strikes to break a tough partnership, pitching full and beating Morkel's push across the line, sneaking between the gap to hit middle stump 308/6
View dismissal PL Harris lbw b Siddle 2 4 11 0 0 18.18
116.1 simple decision, Siddle strikes again with a fullish delivery angling back in to catch Harris hopping about his crease, it stays low and ramrod straight and he's a sitting duck 310/7
View dismissal DW Steyn b Siddle 6 8 10 1 0 60.00
118.5 and the move works! Another simple tailender's wicket for Siddle, keeping the ball up there and knocking back leg stump as Steyn backs away and misses his forward prod 316/8

16.5 silly shot brings about his downfall! Morkel pitches it right up and Hayden loses his focus, planting the foot forward and swinging across his pads, succeeding only in dragging the ball back onto his stumps 62/1
View dismissal SM Katich lbw b Steyn 61 216 136 7 0 44.85
50.5 he's been given! Katich shuffles across and plays the clip, there's but a half appeal from Boucher and slip and Asoka de Silva raises the finger, it struck him Katich in front of about middle and leg stump but there was no reaction from Steyn, all the umpire needed was one person to ask the question and Boucher and Kallis' appeal was more than enough 181/3
View dismissal RT Ponting* b Morkel 53 67 57 9 0 92.98
36.4 and then he goes and does that! A cramped attempt to dab the ball down to third man but the angle back in draws a loose inside edge back onto the stumps, success for Morkel 134/2

View dismissal ND McKenzie c Hussey b Bollinger 27 120 101 3 0 26.73
30.2 Bollinger strikes! Slips in a full and wide delivery that bounces a little more than McKenzie, reaching out to square-drive, expected and he spoons a catch to Hussey at gully 68/2
View dismissal M Morkel c Johnson b Bollinger 0 4 2 0 0 0.00
1.2 and he gets his first wicket! Morkel just stands there and rolls the wrists loosely, something of an odd chip shot that is gobbled up by Johnson, tumbling to his left at mid-on 2/1
View dismissal HM Amla c Katich b Hauritz 59 162 112 9 0 52.67
41.1 Hauritz gets into the action! Amla goes back to play one turning back in but it bounces more than anticipated and he pops it straight off the hips to Katich at short leg 110/4
View dismissal JH Kallis c & b McDonald 4 23 13 0 0 30.76
35.3 oh well held, McDonald .. or not? Pitches it up down the stumps, Kallis goes back and starts to turn it to the on side, but the ball takes a leading edge and balloons back up in the air towards the bowler, who flings himself to his right in his follow through and looks like he's taken a stunner ... his team-mates converge but Kallis asks for confirmation, and McDonald admits he's not sure. To the naked eye it looked like he took it, Ponting sticks up a finger even before the umpires are consulted, and after numerous analysis Kallis is adjudged out. Thats a very, very tough call. One angle indicates he took it, the straight view says something else. I'm not convinced he took it. 91/3
View dismissal AB de Villiers b Siddle 56 175 144 8 0 38.88
83.6 he's chopped on just before tea! Thats a big wicket for Siddle, drawing a cramped attempt at a cut shot, only succeeding in dragging the ball back onto his stumps 190/7
View dismissal JP Duminy lbw b Johnson 16 100 92 2 0 17.39
70.2 thats plumb! Johnson pitches short of a length and finds a crack, the ball jags back in to hit Duminy on the hop in front of middle stump and Australia celebrate 166/5
View dismissal MV Boucher lbw b Siddle 4 20 25 0 0 16.00
76.5 thats a poor decision from Asoka de Silva, the ball is delivered from wide of the crease, a quick full toss that Boucher cannot pick as he shuffles across towards off stump, it strikes him very high on the pad and would have missed leg stump by some distance 172/6
View dismissal PL Harris lbw b Siddle 6 53 43 0 0 13.95
90.1 got him now, and Harris' sticky resistance ends, but he doesn't look pleased! The ball pitches on a length and doesn't bounce all that much, Harris hops back to defend and misses out and the ball strikes him in line with the stumps 202/8
View dismissal DW Steyn lbw b McDonald 28 88 65 2 0 43.07
107.4 pitches in line and slides on to hit him right in front of leg stump, Bowden has no doubts and Australia celebrate, MacDonald has made up for the drop 257/9
