View dismissal GC Smith* b Khan 6 29 26 0 0 23.07
6.3 84.7 mph, No doubt this time. The death knell. It landed on a length around the off stump line, cut in and caught Smith out. Smith was very tentative in defense, moved his arms rather awkwardly and got the bat in an angle. The ball moved through the bat and pad gap to clean up the stumps. Clatter! Good ball, poor defensive effort. 6/2
View dismissal AG Prince c †Dhoni b Khan 0 19 10 0 0 0.00
4.3 79.8 mph, Given out caught behind but it went of the arm-guard. Now then... now then .. What a ferocious delivery. Zaheer Khan serves up a well-directed bouncer at the face. A stunned Prince takes out the bottom-hand off the handle and offers the bat as a face-shield. The ball crashes into the arm-guard and pops up to Dhoni. It has been given out. Prince staggers out towards Smith, perhaps asking whether we have UDRS here. No. And off he goes. 5/1

View dismissal JH Kallis c Vijay b Harbhajan Singh 173 419 351 15 2 49.28
113.2 57.3 mph, Kallis misses the double ton. Again. This one turned from outside off, he shaped to defend but got a thick inside edge on to the pad and it popped up to Vijay at short-leg. Kallis might have dawdled today but he was magnificent yesterday. 346/3
View dismissal AB de Villiers c Badrinath b Sehwag 53 104 88 5 0 60.22
141.1 52.6 mph, went down the track, reached out for the delivery well outside off stump and tried to loft it over the bowler but got a leading edge to backward point. Simple catch. Sehwag is delighted. 454/4
View dismissal JP Duminy lbw b Harbhajan Singh 9 38 35 1 0 25.71
151.5 52.5 mph, flighted from round the stumps, on the middle and leg line, Duminy misses the sweep shot and is struck right in front of the middle. Hawk eye suggests it would have bounced over the off stump. Hmm... 476/5
View dismissal MV Boucher c Mishra b Khan 39 86 75 3 0 52.00
174.2 74.2 mph, Boucher top edges his slog. It was the slower one, full and outside off, Boucher went for the good-old ugly slog over midwicket and edged it over cover where Mishra took the catch 554/6

5.1 90.2 mph, ho ho ho what a jaffa right up, of all the deliveries at all the times Morkel bowls this one first ball of the morning! angling in, just back of a length, pitches off, holding its line enough, Gambhir is committed into the stroke but ends up playing inside the line, getting a faint edge 31/1
View dismissal V Sehwag c Duminy b Parnell 109 212 139 15 0 78.41
46.4 82.2 mph, A wide delivery gets him a wicket though! Sehwag can't believe what he has done. He throws his head back and shuts his eyes as he almost winces in pain as he walks off. It was full and well outside off stump, Sehwag reached out and ended up slicing it to deepish cover. Fifth wide ball in a row. Sehwag falls after a fine knock. 192/4
View dismissal M Vijay b Steyn 4 15 13 1 0 30.76
8.6 86.7 mph, Clatter! Vijay shoulders arms and hears the death knell. It landed outside off stump, hit the seam and cut in. Vijay lifted his bat in the air and allowed it to pass him but a nasty little surprise awaited him. The ball moved in off the seam to take out the off stump. Crash! Thanks for coming Steyen sticks out his tongue as he reaches the rest of his team-mates. Was it an intended outswinger that hit the seam and came in? Or was it cos of something else, a cheeky joy at a plan to surprise him with an inswinger coming off? . we might never know. Update We do know now. Here's Steyn on this dismissal: "I worked him [Vijay] out quite nicely with two balls that went away and then bringing one back in which he left. That kind of stuff just doesn't happen out in the middle. We've really planned it. " 40/2
View dismissal SR Tendulkar c †Boucher b Steyn 7 25 16 1 0 43.75
14.1 88.4 mph, Got him! Steyn rulez. It came in the air, landed on a length, around the middle and off stump line and curved away. Tendulkar stuttered out to drive, the length drawing him forward, and he was then done in by the away movement. He did push his bat slightly outside the line, trying to cover for the away swing but the ball moved fractionally more and kissed the outer edge. Fabulous delivery. Tendulkar's forward movement wasn't as smooth; he stuttered out... 56/3
View dismissal S Badrinath c Prince b Steyn 56 195 139 7 0 40.28
58.1 84.0 mph, Steyn takes out Badrinath. South Africa climb all over India. It was a length delivery on the middle and leg,tailing in with the shiny side, flicked straight to short midwicket. Soft dismissal but that's that. SA take great control over the game. 221/6
View dismissal MS Dhoni*† c Kallis b Harris 6 46 29 1 0 20.68
57.4 52.5 mph, Gone! What a way to go. It kicked in from the rough well outside the leg stump, Dhoni just thought it would turn in to hit his body and sort of lazily held his bat up .. but to his horror the ball bounded off his body on to the gloves/bat and popped up at slip! South Africa tighten the noose. Enter Saha on his debut. 221/5
View dismissal WP Saha b Steyn 0 5 3 0 0 0.00
58.4 87.4 mph, Saha does a Vijay, if you can call it that. He shoulders arms and has lost his off stump on debut. It cut in from outside off stump, Saha lets it go but it isn't going anywhere but towards the off stump. Clatter! Bye bye! 222/7
View dismissal Harbhajan Singh lbw b Steyn 8 29 16 1 0 50.00

View dismissal Z Khan b Steyn 2 7 8 0 0 25.00
60.3 88.1 mph, Steyn continues to rock on in style. Five-for. It landed short of length, cut in to collide with the inside edge and fell on to the stumps. Zaheer was looking to force it away but ended up pushing an angled bat at it. Gone! 226/8

1.2 90.2 mph, Stunning! Gotcha! The off stump has been pegged back. That round-the-stumps angle has worked again. This one comes back in from outside off, Gambhir, who out pushing at a delivery earlier in the day, chooses to shoulder arms. Mistake. Big mistake. Crash. The ball kept coming in to give a fatal kiss to the off stump. What a start for SA. 1/1

4.4 85.2 mph, The big fish has been caught! Dale Steyn take a bow. It was full, it was outside off stump, it invited a big drive from Sehwag who obliges but the ball shaped away late to fly off the edge straight into the big palms of Smith at first slip. South Africa erupt in joy. What a day they have had. What a day Steyn has had. It has been a treat to watch him bowl a rasping spell of fast swing bowling. 24/2

67.2 51.5 mph, Harris has struck! What a wicket. And that over the wicket and outside leg stump line has worked again. The little big man of Indian cricket has fallen after a fine hundred. It landed outside leg stump on a length, Tendulkar went for the sweep, the ball turned in, bounced off the thigh pad, went on to the elbow guard and fell on the stumps. Harris can't believe it, he runs around in sheer joy and falls flat on his back on the ground even as the team-mates crowd him. What a moment. 192/5

It was delivered from round the stump, landed full in length and held its line, tailing away with the shiny side, Badrinath lunged out with an open bat-face and the ball clipped the outside edge and Boucher did the rest. India are tottering here and what a wonderful game this has been for South Africa. 122/4

75.6 55.0 mph, What a day Paul Harris has had ! He has struck again! This one was floated just outside leg stump, Dhoni, who has been relentlessly padding away, chose to defend this as it wasn't far away from the leg stump line. But he got an fatal inside edge on to the pad and out to silly point. Dhoni's resistance ends. South Africa surge ahead towards a famous win. 209/6

105.1 83.7 mph, Dead plumb in front. India still are seven runs short of the follow-on. Saha leans forward to defend but the ball curves in to strike the pad; he had pressed his front leg too far across and couldn't get his bat around in time. Good little fighting innings but its over now. South Africa are so close to that win now. Can they hand India an innings defeat? 318/9
