View dismissal PA Patel lbw b Kallis 36 27 7 0 133.33

View dismissal JH Kallis c Patel b Gony 9 7 2 0 128.57
1.4 Kallis doesn't look very thrilled as he trudges back, the ball holds its line outside off and kallis shapes to play an off drive, there's a thin nick and both the bowler and keeper are confident, Kallis didn't look back, the stump cam picked up a nick 17/1
View dismissal MK Pandey b Jakati 48 35 7 0 137.14
12.3 the arm ball foxes him! Very slow through the air and Pandey goes for the slog way too early and loses his leg stump which lands a yard back 94/3
View dismissal RE van der Merwe b Morkel 2 5 0 0 40.00
2.5 what a comeback and the legstump goes for a spin! van der Merwe exposes his stumps and Morkel fires a yorker on the stumps, the batsman fails to squeeze it out and watches the stump disappear, and Murali is the most relieved of the lot 22/2
View dismissal R Dravid lbw b Muralitharan 44 39 6 0 112.82
15.1 Is there a twist here? Murali lands it on middle and leg from round the wicket and the ball straightens, Dravid shapes to sweep but he's caught on the base of the pad, Taufel raises the finger, Hawkeye shows it hitting the middle stump 110/4
