View dismissal GC Smith* c Sharma b Nehra 11 16 15 2 0 73.33
3.5 83.9 mph, Kamikaze from Smith. That's a horror shot. A horrendous shot. He was caught at slip, but that was not an outside edge. Smith charges down the track and across, and gets a delivery that was not there for the drive, around off stump. He tries to hoick it across the line, without being in any position to play the shot. He gets a top edge that loops high and nestles in Rohit Sharma's hands as he backpedals from the lone slip. Smith is not Zaheer's bunny today. He has ended up being his own bunny for a change. Smith c Smith b Smith. 21/1
View dismissal HM Amla c Harbhajan Singh b Patel 50 59 36 8 0 138.88
13.3 73.6 mph, Harbhajan's taken a crucial and difficult catch, making it look easier than it was. Amla was on the attack, looking to hit India's seamers out of the attack, but for once, he has mistimed one of those shots. Munaf benefits from keeping it short of a driving length. Amla walks down the track, and goes through with a swat-loft over mid-on despite not getting to the pitch. He doesn't middle it and it loops high over mid-on. Harbhajan runs back and takes it as it comes down over his left shoulder. Good take and end of a sparkling inningss. 82/3
View dismissal CA Ingram c Nehra b Patel 5 34 23 0 0 21.73
11.6 79.2 mph, Ingram's scratchy innings has ended in a manner that typified his stay out there. Poor shot selection, and poor execution. Short ball, he goes for the pull and is really late on the shot. He ends up skying a top edge towards mid-on. That's that then from Ingram - he never got going today. Munaf has a wicket. 72/2
View dismissal AB de Villiers c Harbhajan Singh b Sharma 76 94 69 7 1 110.14
35.2 52.3 mph, It's been a day replete with bad balls, and Rohit had picked a wicket with one of them. Rank bad delivery, the longest of long hops, turning in and asking to be sent out of the ground as it turns into AB. He sets himself up for the pull, and must have been wondering whether he wanted to hit this to the moon or merely into the stands. Somehow, he managed to get it straight to Harbhajan at deep midwicket. Rohit celebrates in Brett Lee, Kevin Pieterseneque fashion. 213/4
View dismissal JP Duminy lbw b Sharma 73 110 89 1 1 82.02
41.6 56.8 mph, Oh no, JP has reverse-swept himself back to the pavilion. Full and on middle from Rohit, JP quickly shifted stance and looked to get it between point and third man, but he missed. That looked plumb. Umpire Erasmus took his time, though, but eventually ruled in Rohit's favour. Huge scalp for India. 244/6
View dismissal DA Miller b Raina 9 9 11 0 0 81.81
38.1 51.2 mph, finally a wicket to a good delivery. Raina slips one through Miller's defences. It landed on off stump and hurried through as Miller shaped to guide it square. He missed and leather crashed into timber. That delivery actually pressed back off stump. Raina is pleased. India have a chance to tie things up here - barring Duminy, SA are out of batsmen. Botha and the seamers to follow. 226/5
View dismissal J Botha b Harbhajan Singh 23 30 27 1 0 85.18
46.3 55.0 mph, The revenge of the offspinner. Harbhajan delivers a full delivery turning in from around off stump. Botha looks to mow him to the leg side and misses. Stumps are down. Harbhajan has the look that seems to say, "Gotcha, my man." 266/7
WD Parnell not out 21 34 19 0 1 110.52
View dismissal DW Steyn c Yuvraj Singh b Khan 7 12 9 0 0 77.77
49.2 82.3 mph, Zaheer gets Steyn again. Another short ball, from round the wicket. Steyn goes for the pull, but has no room to pull it off. Loops the top edge towards mid on and it is easily taken. 285/8
View dismissal M Morkel b Khan 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
49.4 82.1 mph, another yorker, another wicket. Zaheer gets one to snake through Morkel's defense. He stays in the crease and looks to somehow keep the reverse swinging delivery away from his pads, but he could not save the furniture. Leg stump is hit. 286/9

View dismissal M Vijay lbw b Steyn 1 2 3 0 0 33.33
0.4 82.8 mph, Vijay's gone. Steyn's begun the damage early. Straight ball, headed towards the pads in front of off stump. Vijay tries the whip across the line without moving the feet and is beaten for pace. The ball has thudded into the pad and the appeal is well and truly on by the time he plays the shot and looks befuddled. And then it is upheld. 3/1 3/1
View dismissal SR Tendulkar c Steyn b Tsotsobe 7 16 11 0 0 63.63
3.3 80.5 mph, Tendulkar has perished. He has fallen trying to again walk across to Tsotsobe and work him through the leg side. This time Tsotso gets that extra bounce going again. It got big on Sachin from short of a length as he looked to close the face on a paddle shot, and he ended up top-edging it behind short fine leg. Easy take for Steyn who ran back from the circle and set himself up for it. India are wobbling. No 200 for Sachin today. Not even close. 13/2
View dismissal V Kohli c Smith b Steyn 54 122 70 2 1 77.14
29.3 83.2 mph, Kohli perishes. Almost compelled to make the Powerplay count. Barring a miracle and a dream, this should be the end of India's challenge. Back of a length from Steyn, not there for the whip over the infield. Kholi goes for the shot, but can't time it well enough to clear Smith at midwicket in the circle, who hauls it in. End of a promising innings. Promised a bit today. Promised a lot for the future. 128/6
View dismissal RG Sharma c †de Villiers b Morkel 11 28 27 1 0 40.74
10.1 87.2 mph, Morne squares up Rohit once again, and this time Umpire Taufel reckons he got the edge. Unplayable stuff from Morne. Comes in with the angle from wide of the crease, lands back of a length outside off and then nips away, to go with monster bounce. Rohit shapes for the normal forward defensive, but ends up almost facing up to the bowler. That's how far it opened him up. Did he edge it? He's not pleased with the decision. Replays awaited. There was a noise as it passed him. It was the noise of bat hitting pad. Rohit's got a rough one here. 41/3
View dismissal Yuvraj Singh c Smith b Morkel 2 4 4 0 0 50.00
10.5 89.6 mph, Yuvraj comes, Yuvraj goes, India slip further down. Another snorter outside off, but Yuvraj could have chosen to let it go on length, if not line. He jumped up in the crease and went for a heavy-handed poke that looped off the outside edge for an easy catch to Smith at first slip. Morne is on fire. He has the Indians hopping away under lights. 43/4
View dismissal MS Dhoni*† run out (Parnell) 25 48 35 1 0 71.42
22.5 Parnell to Kohli, oh, well. Dhoni has been Kallised. Or Laxmaned. It's amazing how many times this has happened in this series. Kohli times a straight drive perfectly, and Parnell just about gets a finger on it before it crashes into the stumps at the bowler's end. Kallis was stunned. Laxman was shocked. Dhoni just walks back without showing emotion. 95/5
View dismissal SK Raina c Ingram b Tsotsobe 32 49 36 2 1 88.88
33.2 82.3 mph, Raina's adventurous efforts have come to an end. Tsotso puts this one outside off, Raina charges again and looks to slice the cut over the infield, but finds Ingram at point. Easy take, and SA are two wickets away. Boy, this is a long tail. 148/8
View dismissal Harbhajan Singh b Parnell 0 5 4 0 0 0.00
30.2 83.7 mph, Harbhajan's stumps are hit. And unlike in Cape Town, the bails have actually fallen this time. Length ball angling across from middle and leg, Harbhajan looks to smear across the line and gets a healthy inside edge onto the furniture. This can be over in a hurry now. 129/7
View dismissal Z Khan c Duminy b Tsotsobe 6 28 16 0 0 37.50
35.4 76.3 mph, all over. Duminy plucks a superb catch to end the game. Zaheer looks to carve another short ball over the off side, and scoops it up over the covers. JP runs back and puts in a dive to pouch it. India have lost by 135 runs. Their woeful numbers in SA v SA just became more woeful. 154/10
View dismissal A Nehra b Tsotsobe 1 9 7 0 0 14.28
35.2 69.9 mph, ah the joy of seeing a fast bowler fox a tail-ender! Tsotso delivers a full slower ball on leg stump. Nehra barely read the length, he completely failed to notice the change in pace as he went down and attempted to defend it. He was through with the shot with an angled bat when the ball came through and hit the base of leg stump. Sheepish look from Nehra, big smile on Tsotso's face. Fast bowlers - fun when the bowl. More fun when they bat. Most fun when they go face to face. 153/9
