View dismissal MJ Clarke lbw b Parnell 5 22 14 0 0 35.71

View dismissal RT Ponting* c †Boucher b Parnell 8 9 6 0 1 133.33
3.3 excellent start from South Africa! Parnell got this to land on a good length outside off and it moved away after pitching, bowled at 138.1 kmph, Ponting attempted a drive on the up, got a thick edge and Boucher dived well to his right, stretching to pouch a sharp chance 11/2
View dismissal DJ Hussey c †Boucher b Steyn 1 16 12 0 0 8.33
6.6 Australia are reeling here! Poor shot from David Hussey, good length outside off and the customary away movement, he stays rooted in his crease and without any foot-movement tries to force it through the off side, gets a faint nick and Boucher does the rest 19/4
View dismissal MEK Hussey lbw b Parnell 3 10 8 0 0 37.50
7.2 the late movement does him in! It's Parnell's day! Full on leg stump and moved away really late, Hussey was already into the attempted push back towards the bowler, missed it as the ball left him and was struck plumb in front of middle 19/5
View dismissal CJ Ferguson c de Villiers b Steyn 50 113 83 3 0 60.24
36.1 superb catch, a fierce delivery bowled on a good length on the off stump, jumped off the pitch to catch Ferguson on the gloves as he tried to back away, de Villiers, sensing the opportunity, charged forward from point, dived full length and snapped it inches from the ground 124/8
View dismissal JR Hopes c Botha b Kallis 8 26 13 2 0 61.53
13.1 what say now? Fraction short outside off, is on the back foot to force it through point, gets a thick edge and Johan Botha takes a dolly at first slip 40/6
View dismissal MG Johnson lbw b Botha 30 61 62 2 1 48.38
30.4 done in by the doosra, landed on a good length outside off, slow through the air, Johnson, expecting it to spin away leans forward to defend but the ball turns the other way to strike him on the pads in line with middle and off 103/7
View dismissal NM Hauritz c †Boucher b Steyn 10 42 25 1 0 40.00
40.2 edged and gone! Four each for Parnell and Steyn! Full outside off and gets the late movement again, much closer to the off stump this time, Hauritz goes for the drive, gets a thin edge and Boucher takes a sitter 131/10
View dismissal NW Bracken c Gibbs b Parnell 5 7 7 1 0 71.42
37.5 Parnell gets four! Fraction short outside off, chases it, looks to cart it over the in-field on the off side, mistimes it completely and Gibbs has to run just a few steps backwards to take the easiest of catches at cover 129/9
