1.3

Ntini to Clarke, OUT, Clarke's gone, Ntini bowling from wide of the crease slants the ball in towards the batsman, there gets it to straighten, and has Clarke lunging at the ball, a thick outside edge flies at a very catchable height, straight to JP Duminy at second slip

MJ Clarke c Duminy b Ntini 1 (5m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 20.00

Australia 2/1   BJ Haddin 1* (4b)   M Ntini 0.3-0-0-1

14.4

M Morkel to Ponting, OUT, shorter from Morne this time, Ponting tries to repeat the shot, miscued again, and this time he doesn't beat the fielder at mid-on, Albie Morkel runs back a few yards to complete the catch, and Ponting's got to go

RT Ponting c JA Morkel b M Morkel 37 (58m 45b 5x4 0x6) SR: 82.22

Australia 79/2   BJ Haddin 38* (39b 4x4 1x6)   M Morkel 3.4-0-17-1

20.3

JA Morkel to Haddin, OUT, Horrendous, horrendous mix-up, Hussey's run out, Albie sends down a good yorker, Haddin jabs that towards backward point and took one step before deciding against the run, Hussey was charging down and kept running, both batsmen were nearly at the same end when de Villiers lobbed the ball to Albie, who breaks the stumps at the non-striker's end

DJ Hussey run out 18 (23m 20b 2x4 0x6) SR: 90.00

Australia 107/3   BJ Haddin 47* (54b 5x4 1x6)   JA Morkel 2.3-0-22-0

21.5

Botha to MEK Hussey, 1 run, OUT, What is going on here? Another run out, full outside off, Hussey stretches and steers it towards third man, Haddin sets off for the second, Hussey's not interested, Albie throws it from the deep to Boucher, Haddin is yards out of his crease when Boucher breaks the stumps

BJ Haddin run out 53 (95m 60b 6x4 1x6) SR: 88.33

Australia 115/4   MEK Hussey 1* (2b)   J Botha 3.5-0-18-0

34.1

Steyn to Ferguson, OUT, Steyn strikes, short and pretty wide, Ferguson slashes at it, gets a top edge which flies to Johan Botha at third man, Botha back pedals a few steps to complete that catch, making sure that he doesn't cross the boundary

CJ Ferguson c Botha b Steyn 25 (42m 44b 2x4 0x6) SR: 56.81

Australia 168/5   MEK Hussey 26* (32b 2x4)   DW Steyn 5.1-0-18-1

45.3

M Morkel to Hopes, OUT, Hopes is gone, he saw that the fine leg was up, so he walked across the stumps to pick up a middle stump ball and tried to chip it over fine leg, it looked pretty flamboyant but he didn't get enough on it, and Dale Steyn takes a simple catch to end Hopes' useful knock

JR Hopes c Steyn b M Morkel 38 (51m 35b 5x4 0x6) SR: 108.57

Australia 235/6   MEK Hussey 54* (65b 3x4)   M Morkel 8.3-0-43-2

46.2

Steyn to Johnson, OUT, full ball from Steyn, not much footwork from Johnson as he tried to smear it through the offside, gets a faint edge through to the keeper, big appeal from Boucher, Johnson doesn't wait for the umpire's decision and decides to walk

MG Johnson c †Boucher b Steyn 1 (6m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Australia 243/7   MEK Hussey 60* (68b 4x4)   DW Steyn 7.2-0-32-2
