Morkel to Trott, FOUR, hint of width allows Trott to cut it away through backward point for just the second boundary of the day...wasn't timed perfectly but had the legs to beat third man

Morkel to Bopara, FOUR, gets the edge this time, Bopara feeling for the ball and it goes between keeper and the very wide slip. Bopara tried to make it look like a glide, but there was more edge involved

Steyn to Swann, FOUR, clobbered! That's a flowing stroke from Swann, down the track, meeting the quick on the half-volley, and that's smacked through cover. His favourite stroke, and he played it well
