  South Africa 1st innings R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal GC Smith* c †Prior b Anderson 30 94 50 3 0 60.00
20.1 vast strike! Superb line and length from Anderson, and subtle late swing. Smith props forward, takes the edge and Prior completes the catch with a tumble diving in front of first slip 51/3
View dismissal AG Prince c †Prior b Anderson 0 2 3 0 0 0.00
0.4 brilliant from Anderson, and that was coming. Perfect line and length, good carry off the pitch and hooping outswing, Prince flinches his gloves at the ball, and Prior does the rest. 1/1
View dismissal HM Amla lbw b Onions 14 75 56 2 0 25.00
16.4 fuller this time and struck bang in front! Shaping in a tad but Amla had planted his front foot, and played all round this, and there is no doubt 46/2
View dismissal JH Kallis c †Prior b Onions 108 266 189 11 0 57.14
83.4 what a wonderful delivery, and that is Kallis done and dusted! The ball pitched on off, zipped half-a-bat's width, took the edge, and fizzed through to the keeper! Fantastic line and control of the seam from Onions, and the perfect start for England 280/7
View dismissal AB de Villiers c Strauss b Swann 36 84 60 4 0 60.00
41.1 gone this time! Swann from round the wicket and de Villiers will kick himself, chipped to short midwicket. Soft dismissal just as South Africa were really making England sweat. Swann continues to cause trouble but he would concede he was lucky here. 127/4
View dismissal JP Duminy c †Prior b Swann 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
41.2 Swann strikes again! Sharply spinning delivery from round the wicket, catches Duminy's outside edge and Prior eagerly snaps it up. Second first-baller in a row for Duminy. Top delivery from Swann and South Africa are in real trouble. 127/5
View dismissal MV Boucher lbw b Broad 51 98 86 7 0 59.30
66.4 that's the breakthrough, or is it? It's review time ... Boucher has been struck on the back pad by one that zipped off the seam, and it's going to be upheld by the third umpire. HawkEye shows that was going to hit the top of middle, and that's a fine piece of bowling. 216/6
View dismissal DW Steyn c Trott b Anderson 26 68 59 3 0 44.06
84.1 what a morning for England! In the corridor outside off, Steyn pokes uneasily, gets a fat edge and Jonathan Trott at third slip dives across to snaffle the chance 280/8
View dismissal M Morkel c Swann b Anderson 0 8 3 0 0 0.00
84.4 incredible! It's catching practice this morning. Anderson finds the perfect length and extra bounce outside off, Morkel hangs out his bat, and Swann atones for his bad miss on the first morning with a fine low scoop, diving to his left at second slip! 281/9
PL Harris not out 10 14 7 1 0 142.85
View dismissal F de Wet lbw b Anderson 0 11 4 0 0 0.00
86.1 we've got a review coming up. A good delivery zipping back into the pads, the umpire gives it out, but South Africa immediately ask for a second opinion. Some question about whether he was struck outside the line, but that stands 291/10

View dismissal AJ Strauss* c †Boucher b Morkel 2 3 6 0 0 33.33
0.6 gone! Morkel gets Strauss again! Outside off stump and pitched full, Strauss goes for a slightly flat-footed loose drive and South Africa strike straight away. Wickets tumbling at Newlands! 2/1
View dismissal AN Cook c Prince b Morkel 65 228 136 7 0 47.79
50.4 huge breakthrough for South Africa! Cook paddles a short ball gently to midwicket. Bit of nothing shot, neither a full-blooded pull or a careful leg-side force. Whatever it is, South Africa won't care, they are right in this contest. 133/5
View dismissal IJL Trott b Steyn 20 58 36 3 0 55.55
12.4 got him! Steyn strikes! The wickets keep tumbling and Trott won't be happy with this. Outside off stump on a good length, really should have been left alone, but he flashed at it from the crease and only succeeded in inside-edging it on to off stump 36/2
View dismissal KP Pietersen c & b Steyn 0 3 2 0 0 0.00
12.6 another one! Pietersen gone for a duck! Fullish ball that Pietersen just chipped straight back at Steyn who gleefully snaffled the chance. Steyn is pumped, this is extraordinary. 36/3
View dismissal PD Collingwood lbw b Morkel 19 51 44 3 0 43.18
24.3 that's a huge wicket, pitched right up to the blockhole, and Collingwood over-balances as he attempts to drive down the ground. Hits the back leg, and there's no point in reviewing that 73/4
View dismissal IR Bell c Duminy b Kallis 48 171 121 8 0 39.66
62.3 short, wide, cut, and that's gone straight to point! Oh Belly, Belly, it looked as though he'd cracked it at last, but with a fifty in sight, he's the one who breaks 174/6
View dismissal MJ Prior b Steyn 76 179 118 9 0 64.40
87.6 short again, Prior tries to paddle to fine leg, but under-edges onto his stumps. The end of a fine counterattacking performance, and had that been anything other than the last ball of the over, he would doubtless have attempted something more aggressive to that ball 273/10
View dismissal SCJ Broad b Steyn 25 69 39 4 0 64.10
77.6 Steyn breaks through! Broad is hanging back on his crease, and he's late on this and it clips the top of the stumps. Important breakthrough just before the second new ball 225/7
View dismissal GP Swann c Smith b Morkel 5 22 17 0 0 29.41
82.4 awesome delivery, and that is the breakthrough. This one takes off from a good length, glances the glove, and pops easily to Graeme Smith at first slip! 241/8
View dismissal JM Anderson c Smith b Morkel 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
82.5 It's two in two! Morkel has five as Anderson collects the first golden duck of his career. Angled across the left-hander, extra bounce on a good length, fenced to Smith again at first slip, and it's utterly bonkers out there 241/9

11.1 Another review. Prince leans forward and is struck on the pad, given out and Prince reviews. Prince looks in trouble, there is no inside edge and it is as plumb as pudding. Given out and Swann strikes again! Wasted review that one. 31/1
View dismissal GC Smith* c Collingwood b Onions 183 391 273 25 0 67.03
89.5 short, swished, high on the bat, Collingwood at deep backward square steadies himself, and grasps the chance with fingers skyward 346/3
View dismissal HM Amla c Cook b Swann 95 229 156 14 0 60.89
65.4 he's gone now! Props forward to a ball that turns a touch, takes the inside-edge, bobbles off the pad, and Cook at short leg stays low to end a fine innings 261/2
View dismissal JH Kallis c †Prior b Anderson 46 155 96 5 0 47.91
99.5 gone this time! Kallis never really got going this morning, tries an expansive cover drive outside off stump, a hint of movement means it takes the edge and goes through to Prior. No great celebration from England, nor should they be, but they have done reasonably well this morning. 376/4
View dismissal AB de Villiers c Broad b Anderson 34 84 49 3 0 69.38
105.1 exceptional catch from Broad, running back from mid-off and taking the ball over his shoulder with a tumble as de Villiers attempted an inside-out loft over the covers 401/5

111.2 short and swinging down the leg-side, there's a thin tickle through to the keeper, and that is out! 447/7
View dismissal MV Boucher c Bell b Swann 15 28 10 1 1 150.00
110.3 and now Swann strikes ... is that the 14th time he's struck in the first over of a spell? I believe it might be. Another sweep from Boucher, a steepling top-edge, and a comfortable catch at short backward square 442/6

View dismissal AJ Strauss* c Amla b Harris 45 167 107 7 0 42.05
39.3 massive wicket! Harris gets Strauss, it pitched outside off again, Strauss tried to work it into the leg side but only succeeded in inside-edging into his pad and it looped up gently to Amla who grabbed it eagerly. That could be the decisive moment. 107/2

View dismissal IJL Trott b Steyn 42 149 99 4 0 42.42
70.3 got him! Steyn strikes! Off stump is flying as a full ball nips back between bat and pad and crashes into the top of off. It looked a loose shot but it was fantastic quick bowling. 160/5
View dismissal KP Pietersen lbw b Steyn 6 34 22 0 0 27.27
47.2 got him! Huge wicket and an inspired bowling change from Smith. Full and Pietersen is playing across the ball, strikes him in front and there is no need for a review on that. Steyn gets the main man and England are tottering now! 129/3

61.6 the leg-slip is instantly into the action! An aggressive sweep from Anderson, as Harris serves up a full-toss. The ball bounces down onto his toe, flicks round the corner, and Ashwell Prince snaffles a blinder, diving one-handed to his right! 153/4
View dismissal PD Collingwood c Kallis b Duminy 40 276 188 4 0 21.27
127.3 well, what have we here! Maybe there is life! Duminy ends Collingwood's epic block with one that is pushed across him, catches the outside edge, and goes through to Kallis at slip. Suddenly this last hour will seem like a day for England! 272/6
