  Australia 1st innings R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal PJ Hughes c McKenzie b Kallis 115 190 151 19 2 76.15
43.5 Hughes' fun and frolic comes to an end! Kallis teases him with a short and wide delivery outside off, Hughes chases it and goes for the cut but he fails to get the elevation, McKenzie at gully takes a sharp catch falling to his right 184/1
View dismissal SM Katich c Smith b Steyn 108 296 190 16 0 56.84
67.1 Steyn's new spell brings a change of luck, he continues over the wicket and gets the ball to kick up slightly off a good length, Katich loses his concentration, loosely hangs his bat out and gives Smith catching practice at first slip, he takes it at waist height, easy take 259/3
View dismissal RT Ponting* c McKenzie b Harris 9 36 20 1 0 45.00
51.4 almost an action replay of the previous ball but Ponting's not so lucky, he gets forward and tries to loft straight but he miscues it high in the air, McKenzie at deepish mid-off pedals back a bit and takes the catch falling backwards 208/2
View dismissal MEK Hussey b Morkel 50 214 144 9 0 34.72
100.6 Timber!! Full on middle and off and moves away at the last moment just as Hussey tries to work that away into the leg side, misses it completely and the off stump is out of the ground. 329/5
View dismissal MJ Clarke b Harris 3 16 11 0 0 27.27
70.1 I think Harris will watch replays of that all night! He lands it on middle stump and gets it to straighten, Clarke is uncertain what to do with it but he barely has time to decide as the ball skids through and crashes onto the stumps. He exposed at least two stumps while trying to defend, classic spinner's dismissal 266/4
View dismissal MJ North c Steyn b Kallis 38 151 114 5 0 33.33
104.5 Kallis strikes! Full on the pads, he clips it uppishly but straight to Steyn at square leg who takes a sitter, wristy subcontinental shot that, but there was a fielder positioned exactly for that 348/6
View dismissal BJ Haddin c Amla b Ntini 5 23 10 0 0 50.00
105.3 Another one! Short outside off, he could have hit that anywhere but pulled it straight to Amla at midwicket who takes it comfortably, that definitely makes it South Africa's morning 348/7
AB McDonald not out 4 21 7 0 0 57.14
View dismissal MG Johnson lbw b Ntini 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
105.4 Oh dear Oh dear ... What was Mitch thinking? It was full, it was straight and Mitchell decides its time to shoulder arms. Dead duck. The ball landed in line with the stumps and straightened a fraction - Mitch thought Ntini would be taking it away as usual - and caught him in front. Australia are crumbling here. What a morning. The ball landed in middle and leg and would have hit the middle and off 348/8
View dismissal PM Siddle c †Boucher b Steyn 0 10 4 0 0 0.00
107.2 Referral, That's a snorter! Short on the off stump and spat off the pitch, Siddle tries to basically cover his face with his bat, takes his hand off the bat but only after it seems he has gloved it, Boucher snaps it and Asad Rauf raises his finger immediately. Siddle has doubts though and calls for a referral. It's in vain as hot spot indicates there was a faint white mark on the gloves. Perhaps he felt he took his hand off before it hit him, which, according to the rule, would have been not out. However, the replays indicate otherwise. Australia are nine down. 352/9
View dismissal BW Hilfenhaus c Smith b Steyn 0 2 2 0 0 0.00
107.4 Australia have collapsed here! Fraction short on the off stump and moved away, Hilfenhaus prodded at it off the back foot, got the outside edge and Smith at first slip pouched it easily moving to his right 352/10

5.3 they've gone silent again, this was absolutely plumb, landed on a good length on the off stump and cut back in sharply, de Villiers didn't anticipate that movement as he came forward to defend that on the off side, was rapped on the pads in front of middle.

88.6 that's a cracker of a delivery! Siddle gets that nagging angle into the right-hander, de Villiers prods forward and is forced to play at it, there's a clear deflection to Haddin and Siddle knows he's deserved that breakthrough 279/4

101.2 that's a cracker and Hilfenhaus gave Duminy more than a sneak preview of what to expect, it's a nasty bouncer which Duminy is forced to play at, the ball fizzes towards his body, he hops at the crease and has barely enough time to withdraw his glove and the ball clips the glove and heads to Haddin 299/5

125.3 that's a sharp return catch! Boucher leans forward to push the ball past the bowler, he ends up getting a leading edge and North dives to his right and takes it with both hands, Boucher can't believe he's thrown it away after all the hard work 345/7

105.2 Siddle's the man! Katich drops the ball short and Harris moves back and across and tries to club it over the on side, he gets a thick top edge and Siddle does really well to run to his right from mid-on and take the catch on the slide 307/6
View dismissal M Morkel c †Haddin b Katich 24 101 78 4 0 30.76
130.5 That's a batsman's referral Morkel defends on the front foot and there's an inside edge onto his pads, the ball just sneaks past the offstump and the ball lodges between Haddin's legs, he appeals and Asad Rauf gives him out, Morkel walks off, turns back and asks for the referral, now it was a little confusing if they were appealing for the catch or an lbw, after an eternity the decision is given so Morkel is out caught behind 363/8
