View dismissal AC Gilchrist*† c Nel b Ntini 14 35 19 3 0 73.68
7.5 short of a good length delivery, Gilchrist goes for his favourite pull but the ball moves in a touch and that cramps him but it's too late to adjust and the top edge balloons up towards mid-on, Nel nicely settles under it 25/3
View dismissal SM Katich b Ntini 2 14 16 0 0 12.50
3.4 bowled 4/1
View dismissal DR Martyn lbw b Pollock 1 4 3 0 0 33.33
4.1 well bowled off cutter, Martyn plays down the wrong line and is trapped plumb in front, Pollock too joins the party 5/2
View dismissal MJ Clarke c de Villiers b Pollock 53 109 82 6 0 64.63
31.2 Pollock strikes!! slower delivery from Pollock, just a bit on offer, Clarke falls prey to it, drives in the air, but cant find the gap, drives to the left of AB De Villiers who's fielding at cover, he dives to his left and pulls off a fantastic catch! 125/4
View dismissal MEK Hussey c Dippenaar b Pollock 56 102 73 4 1 76.71
33.4 gone!! that was a rank bad shot. Pollock bowls one just a little short, and a little too straight, Hussey pulls it away off the backfoot, cant keep it down, and finds Boeta Dippenaar at the midwicket fence - that's two wickets in two overs for Pollock - justifies Graeme Smith's move of bringing him on 132/5
View dismissal SR Watson b Hall 22 64 38 1 0 57.89
45.2 Hall strikes back! full and on the stump, Watson misses and Hall hits 208/7

View dismissal NW Bracken run out (†Boucher/Ntini) 16 8 7 0 2 228.57
46.5 Ntini to Lee, RUN OUT! wide delivery outside the off stump and the ball goes through to the keeper, Bracken takes off for the run but this time Lee stands his ground, with both the batsmen at the same end the ball is throw to Ntini, who strolls across and clips the bails at the bowler's end 227/8
