Khan to Smith, no run, this one goes down the leg side and Dhoni collects.

0.3

Khan to Smith, no run, lands outside off, on a length and moves away, left alone by Smith

0.4

Khan to Smith, no run, And the routine continues. One outside off followed by the one down the leg side. This is pretty wide and Dhoni has to dive to grab it

0.5

Khan to Smith, no run, on and around the off stump line, defended to cover

0.6

Khan to Smith, FOUR, Full pitched tilting in on the middle and leg line and Smith whips it away to the midwicket boundary. Easy pickings.

South Africa 4/0   GC Smith 4* (6b 1x4)
2.1

Khan to Smith, no run, shout for lbw but there was an inside edge. Quite similar to the delivery that cleaned him up in the first Test. Full in length and moving in from outside off stump, Smith pushes tentatively at it and edges it

2.2

Khan to Smith, no run, shorter in length, bounces outside off, Smith gets back to defend to the on side

2.3

Khan to Smith, no run, short in length and bounces down the leg side.. inconsistent line and length so far

2.4

Khan to Smith, no run, and this one is almost dragged on to the stumps! It was a length delivery outside off but Smith is so worried about his off stump that he decides very late to leave it and as he lifted his bat in the air, the ball collided with the inside edge and the ball rolled past the off stump. Zaheer has a few words to say to Smith

2.5

Khan to Smith, no run, this one is on the off stump line, Smith gets solidly behind the line to defend

2.6

Khan to Smith, OUT, What a beauty! The off stump has gone for a walk. It pitched outside off stump and cut in sharply, Smith leaned forward to defend but the ball rushed in through the bat and pad gap to crash into the off stump. Clatter! Zak wins yet another mini-battle with Graeme.

GC Smith b Khan 4 (13m 12b 1x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

South Africa 9/1   GC Smith 4 (12b 1x4)
