View dismissal MEK Hussey run out (de Villiers/†Boucher) 12 17 15 1 0 80.00

View dismissal DJ Hussey b Ntini 36 70 44 2 0 81.81

48.5 oh well taken, Botha! Ntini gets another by pitching full down leg stump, getting the ball to swing in with the angle, Hopes chips it off the pads low in the air towards Botha, staying back on the circle, who then runs across and dives to hold a very sharp catch 267/9
View dismissal MG Johnson b Duminy 10 8 6 2 0 166.66

View dismissal SW Tait run out (Gibbs/Steyn) 0 7 1 0 0 0.00
49.2 from Steyn, whats happening here? Tait hops away toward square leg and drops the short delivery to the off side, Bracken sets off but there is no reaction from Tait, who is ball watching, suddenly both men are at one end and Tait had no chance to get back as the throw comes back to Botha on the bounce, who dislodges the stumps 269/10
