  • Overs 1-50

Kallis to Hughes, OUT, 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

PJ Hughes c McKenzie b Kallis 115 (190m 151b 19x4 2x6) SR: 76.15

Australia 184/1   SM Katich 59* (117b 10x4)   JH Kallis 6.5-2-28-1

Harris to Ponting, OUT, 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

RT Ponting c McKenzie b Harris 9 (36m 20b 1x4 0x6) SR: 45.00

Australia 208/2   SM Katich 74* (144b 13x4)   PL Harris 11.4-3-47-1

Steyn to Katich, OUT, 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

SM Katich c Smith b Steyn 108 (296m 190b 16x4 0x6) SR: 56.84

Australia 259/3   MEK Hussey 14* (49b 2x4)   DW Steyn 13.1-1-47-1

Harris to Clarke, OUT, 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

MJ Clarke b Harris 3 (16m 11b 0x4 0x6) SR: 27.27

Australia 266/4   MEK Hussey 18* (56b 3x4)   PL Harris 14.1-3-52-2

Morkel to Hussey, OUT, 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.

MEK Hussey b Morkel 50 (214m 144b 9x4 0x6) SR: 34.72

Australia 329/5   MJ North 24* (98b 3x4)   M Morkel 23-3-81-1

Kallis to North, OUT, 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

MJ North c Steyn b Kallis 38 (151m 114b 5x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

Australia 348/6   BJ Haddin 5* (7b)   JH Kallis 13.5-4-46-2

Ntini to Haddin, OUT, 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

BJ Haddin c Amla b Ntini 5 (23m 10b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Australia 348/7   AB McDonald 0* (1b)   M Ntini 18.3-3-58-1

Ntini to Johnson, OUT, 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

MG Johnson lbw b Ntini 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Australia 348/8   AB McDonald 0* (1b)   M Ntini 18.4-3-58-2

Steyn to Siddle, OUT, 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.

PM Siddle c †Boucher b Steyn 0 (10m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Australia 352/9   AB McDonald 4* (7b)   DW Steyn 25.2-3-83-2

Steyn to Hilfenhaus, OUT, 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

BW Hilfenhaus c Smith b Steyn 0 (2m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Australia 352/10   AB McDonald 4* (7b)   DW Steyn 25.4-3-83-3
