View dismissal GC Smith* b Khan 0 2 2 0 0 0.00
0.2 bowled 'em! A tad fuller this time, 133.2ks on a sweet spot, swings in and beats Smith's tame forward drive, ball sneaks through bat and pad and crashes into off stump, big wicket, well bowled Zaheer Khan! 0/1
View dismissal LE Bosman c Tendulkar b Khan 6 46 26 1 0 23.07
10.4 GONE! Full outside off stump, an impetuous Bosman has a full-blooded drive at that, kitchen sink and all, as they say, and can only get a thick edge to Tendulkar at first slip, who jumps up and pouches a good catch moving to his left, Zaheer gets another 38/3
View dismissal JH Kallis c Tendulkar b Khan 0 2 2 0 0 0.00
0.4 GONE! Whoah Nelly! Full, fast and moving away from him, 130.4ks Kallis reaches a long way for it, has a big swish at that and can only nick it through to Tendulkar at first slip! Huge wicket, Zak's back! 0/2
View dismissal HH Gibbs c Kaif b Pathan 35 49 40 7 0 87.50
11.6 gone! A rank half-volley outside off stump, begging to be hit, Gibbs gets onto bended knee and can only smack that in the air to Kaif at short extra cover, he takes a simple catch and Gibbs has to go, a tame dismissal 42/4
View dismissal AB de Villiers c †Dhoni b Agarkar 29 47 30 5 0 96.66
19.2 but Agarkar wins this battle! Shortish outside off stump and de Villiers decides to have a tickle at it and gets a thick edge through to Dhoni, moving to his left, India on a roll! 76/6
View dismissal MV Boucher run out (Pathan/Kumble) 4 36 16 0 0 25.00
18.5 Kumble to de Villiers, poor running, and thats out! Tossed up, de Villiers gets to the pitch of it and drives in the gap at cover, calls for the second but Boucher is struggling, Pathan covers good ground, swoops in and fires the throw high over Kumble, who jumps, catches it and drops it down onto the stumps and Boucher is out, ever so marginally 71/5
JM Kemp not out 100 125 89 6 7 112.35
View dismissal SM Pollock run out (†Dhoni/Kaif) 33 59 50 5 0 66.00
35.5 from Harbhajan Singh, what an effort! Pollock taps the ball towards short cover and takes off for a single but Kemp sends him back. Dhoni moves across quickly and has a shy at the stumps, Kaif moves in behind the stumps from short leg, stretches across - collects the ball and deflects it into the stumps and Pollock is out by a long way - crucial wicket this. 136/7

View dismissal V Sehwag c Hall b Pollock 0 2 4 0 0 0.00
0.4 and gone! short and wide outside the off stump. Sehwag goes for the cut and the ball flies off the top edge, done in by the extra bounce there - Andrew Hall sprints across in the deep and takes a fine tumbling catch - Pollock strikes in the very first over, Sehwag walks back for a duck. 0/1
View dismissal SR Tendulkar c Bosman b Pollock 2 20 9 0 0 22.22
4.4 Pollock strikes again! short delivery and Tendulkar pulls it straight to Bowman at square leg. The ball was there to be hit but he miserably failed to keep it down. 7/2
View dismissal R Dravid* c Hall b Pollock 63 179 103 4 1 61.16
40.1 banged in short outside off stump, Dravid goes for a hook but doesnt time it and gets a leading edge that balloons up and down to a diving Hall at deep backward square leg, who dives forward and plucks that inches before the ground, South Africa have been excellent with their catching today and Dravid's gritty innings comes to an end 168/9
View dismissal M Kaif b Pollock 10 16 17 1 0 58.82
8.5 and Pollock gets his revenge. Excellent off-cutter, Kaif goes for the pull, ball clips the inside edge and crashes into the woodwork 17/3
View dismissal KD Karthik c Smith b Ntini 14 34 23 2 1 60.86
16.2 four down! short of a good length, bit off extra bounce and zing - Karthik leaves his bat hanging in the air to dry and the edge goes straight to Smith at second slip. 44/4
View dismissal MS Dhoni c Bosman b Kallis 55 61 48 3 4 114.58
30.4 pulled and gone courtesy a superb catch! Dropped in short outside off stump, Dhoni's eyes light up and he pulls that hard and flat, looks like another boundary at least but there out of the blue comes Bosman running hard and fast to his left and he dives forward and picks that inches off the ground near the ropes, immense catch to end a fine innings 129/5
View dismissal IK Pathan c Smith b Kallis 1 12 10 0 0 10.00
32.6 gone! Bangs one in that moves across him, and he's tempted into a leaden-footed poke that takes the edge and flies hard and fast to Smith at lone slip, and he holds onto it above his head, good catch and Kallis has another, the tails exposed too 133/6
View dismissal Harbhajan Singh c Smith b Hall 10 12 12 2 0 83.33
35.6 gone! Fullish, slower ball outside off stump, and all he can do is roll the wrists and scoop that up in the air towards mid-on where Smith dives to his left and plucks that with his left hand as the ball died on him, end of the road for Harbhajan 148/7
View dismissal AB Agarkar c Smith b Hall 6 11 9 1 0 66.66
37.5 Full ball on middle and leg. Agarkar loses a bit of balance, falls over and scoops it in the direction of midwicket where Smith times his jump to perfection, stretches his right hand and pulls off another beauty. They're catching them like champions now. The end seems very near 156/8
Z Khan not out 2 16 11 0 0 18.18
View dismissal A Kumble b Hall 0 5 3 0 0 0.00
41.3 all over at Newlands! Full-pitched delivery outside off stump, Kumble goes down on one knee and drives, gets an inside edge onto off stump and Hall celebrates with a pumped fist, a spin on the heels, and a happy walk back to the dressing room 168/10
