View dismissal HM Amla c Dockrell b Rankin 18 20 17 1 1 105.88
4.4 and now he is gone, Amla goes for the upper cut, something he had attempted two deliveries earlier, but too much of a thick outside edge this one as he connects from outside off stump, the ball swirls quickly wide of third man where young Dockrell dives to his left and pulls off the stunner, it did not lodge cleanly in his hands but he kept them close to his chest, and managed to hold on as he fell 24/1
View dismissal GC Smith* run out (Mooney) 7 43 18 0 0 38.88
9.4 Johnston to van Wyk, Ireland make up for those clangers a bit, it is Mooney from midwicket, van Wyk had shuffled across to work the single away, but Mooney was close by, Smith got too far down the track in his haste for the run, he turned back and put in the dive, but Mooney had already found the stumps by then, the crowd roar, Ireland celebrate 52/2
View dismissal MN van Wyk b Dockrell 42 48 41 7 1 102.43
15.5 it couldn't get through the great man, but it has consumed van Wyk, flighted and went straight on, he had backed away for the cut, not short enough for the shot, not wide enough at all, and to his horror it kept a bit low too, and beat the attempted cut to crash in to off stump, lovely bowling, the adventure of van Wyk at Eden is over 84/3
View dismissal JH Kallis run out (†NJ O'Brien/Porterfield) 19 43 31 3 0 61.29
20.3 Stirling to Duminy, Kallis is in trouble, he was not quick enough to beat the throw as Duminy worked one away to midwicket, was a bit slow off the blocks as the throw came in from Porterfield, Niall had the bails off quickly, it is a close call as the replays show, but Kallis has to walk back, he cannot believe it, he did not put in the dive either, has himself to blame 95/4
View dismissal JP Duminy c KJ O'Brien b Mooney 99 139 103 6 1 96.11
49.4 Duminy is out for 99! He tried to go down the ground, but sliced at it and got underneath the ball, lifting it very high ... two fielders converge and one of them dives and slides to pull off a great one-handed catch. Guess who? Yep, it's Kevin O'Brien! 269/7
View dismissal F du Plessis c Johnston b Stirling 11 21 19 0 0 57.89
26.3 guided straight to slip, that's the way it is done during training, it was flighted outside off stump, drifted away from the batsman a touch, he came forward, opened the face of the bat and steered it at a nice catchable height to slip, South Africa are in trouble now, Johnston is delighted 117/5
View dismissal CA Ingram b Johnston 46 55 43 7 0 106.97
39.4 bowled 'im! Trent provides just the inspirational moment Ireland needed, pushing one fuller and straighter. The ball kept a little low, but Ingram was right back when he should have been forward and swiped across the line with no great certainty. No chicken dance from Johnston yet ... actually he looks quite angry! 204/6

View dismissal WTS Porterfield* c Smith b Morkel 6 8 8 1 0 75.00
1.6 85.6 mph, that will do, Morne gets the breakthrough early on, lures Porterfield in to the drive, but driving morne is fraught with danger at the best of times because of that short of a good length he bowls, this one moved away after angling in around off stump, and the outside edge went safely to first slip, the South African slip cordon is as safe as a bank 8/1
View dismissal PR Stirling c Kallis b Morkel 10 15 11 2 0 90.90
3.3 89.6 mph, Stirling does what du Plessis did earlier, guides one straight to slip, second slip this time, this one came in from short of a length, he was caught in the crease and had a weak dab at it, and it looped slowly in the air to settle in to Jacques Kallis' hands 19/2
View dismissal EC Joyce lbw b Botha 12 46 24 2 0 50.00
11.5 52.1 mph, Joyce goes for the sweep to a delivery that angles in, misses and is hit on the pads, umpire Dharmasena sends him back, but Ireland go for the review, and that would have hit middle and leg, Ireland are reeling here 51/4
View dismissal NJ O'Brien c †van Wyk b Kallis 10 23 16 0 1 62.50
8.5 82.9 mph, Kallis gets one now, Niall went charging down the track, got beside the line of one going across him, looking to go over extra cover, but got a faint tickle on its way through to the keeper 35/3
View dismissal GC Wilson lbw b Peterson 31 60 48 4 1 64.58
21.5 53.1 mph, arm ball from Peterson, Wilson is wrapped on the pads to spark a huge appeal ... and he's given! After a quick chat, they review it, but to no avail. Ireland lose both of their set batsmen in the space of three balls, and they're sliding now 92/6
View dismissal KJ O'Brien c Amla b Peterson 19 39 24 2 0 79.16
21.3 52.0 mph, gone this time! O'Brien was aiming for long-on but sliced across the ball, skying it up for Hashim Amla to take an easy catch at long-off. No O'Brien show tonight ... 92/5
View dismissal AR Cusack c Smith b Peterson 7 23 11 1 0 63.63
25.5 48.3 mph, Peterson's got another one! Well with the required rate rising they had to try and target the boundary, no point just knocking it around. Cusack took a couple of steps down and tried to mow it down the ground, but the ball spun away from him, taking a thick edge and swirling up for a catch in the covers 107/7
View dismissal JF Mooney c †van Wyk b Kallis 14 49 28 1 0 50.00
32.4 81.7 mph, just one more to go now, Kallis comes round the wicket, Mooney drives and the edge goes straight through to van Wyk. He beat him a couple of times in the last over, now he gets one to touch the bat as Mooney drives rooted to the crease 137/9
View dismissal DT Johnston c †van Wyk b Duminy 12 14 16 0 1 75.00
29.5 56.7 mph, caught behind! Johnston presses forward and again the ball doesn't spin an inch, taking a clear outside edge and nestling in van Wyk's right glove 123/8
View dismissal GH Dockrell c †van Wyk b Morkel 16 19 12 3 0 133.33
33.2 84.3 mph, superb catch from van Wyk! Morkel slammed one down much shorter, it leapt up at young Dockrell and took the edge of the shoulder of the bat, the keeper tumbled to his right to complete the dismissal and that's the end of Ireland 141/10
