View dismissal GC Smith* c †Haddin b Hopes 20 44 30 2 0 66.66
10.1 Hopes strikes! Just a fraction short outside off, Smith comes down the pitch while simultaneously giving himself some room, slashes hard but gets a thick edge, actually off the bottom of the bat straight to Haddin who accepts it gleefully 46/1

17.6 Harwood gets his maiden ODI wicket! Banged in short outside off, Kallis times that a little too well for his liking, upper-cuts it straight to third man, who's right at the edge waiting for it and takes a well-judged catch bending forward 87/2

View dismissal BJ Haddin c Parnell b Botha 78 93 61 7 4 127.86
20.4 Parnell's snapped it this time, flighted on the off stump, Haddin is tempted and attempts to clear long-on again, doesn't strike this as well as the previous one, gets more elevation than he would have wanted and finds Parnell, who takes it gleefully just inside the ropes 129/1
View dismissal MJ Clarke b van der Merwe 50 102 68 4 0 73.52
23.3 he's gone now and South Africa have struck back with two quick wickets, forced much quicker through the air, landed on a good length on middle and spun away sharply, Clarke was beaten by the pace as well as the spin to watch is offstump pegged back 137/2
View dismissal RT Ponting* c Morkel b Steyn 53 79 67 4 0 79.10
40.6 He's gone now! What an eventful over, could well be the decisive blow. Held it back this time and banged it in short on middle, tried to pull it over midwicket, struck it well but couldn't clear him, Albie Morkel times his jump to perfection and Australia are pegged back again 226/6
View dismissal CJ Ferguson st †Boucher b van der Merwe 3 6 6 0 0 50.00
25.1 spin does the trick again, van der Merwe has turned this game around, similar ball to the one that got Clarke but bowled outside the off stump this time, Ferguson stepped out of his crease to play it into the off side but was done in by the sharp spin away from him, Boucher collected it cleanly and clipped off the bails to find the batsman just short 145/3
View dismissal MEK Hussey lbw b van der Merwe 2 8 9 0 0 22.22
27.4 van der Merwe you beauty! Flatter, following up on three flighted deliveries, landed just a fraction outside off stump and turned in towards Hussey to rap him on the pads as he got onto the back foot to work it behind square. Replays indicate he was struck in line with leg stump 151/4
View dismissal DJ Hussey c & b Steyn 20 30 20 2 0 100.00
35.5 but that's where it stops for Australia, banged in short on middle, goes for the pull but it's onto him a little quickly, gets the top-edge and there are fielders converging to pouch that on the leg side, Steyn is the quickest to get to it and takes a good catch running to his right 188/5
View dismissal JR Hopes c Gibbs b Parnell 31 41 28 3 0 110.71
44.4 good length on middle and leg but moved a hint away from the batsman, Hopes tried to clip that over the in-field on the leg side, was into the shot a little too early, lobbed off the outside-half of the bat in the direction of backward point where Gibbs took a dolly 255/8
View dismissal MG Johnson b Morkel 5 11 6 0 0 83.33
43.3 superb yorker on middle, Johnson has made room but the length just isn't right for him, in the blockhole, he fails to get his bat down in time and the stumps take a beating! 245/7
View dismissal NM Hauritz b Steyn 3 9 5 0 0 60.00
45.1 the end is nearing for the visitors now! Slightly short on middle, Hauritz makes room to dab that down to third man, misses it completely and the ball crashes into the stumps 256/9
NW Bracken not out 0 6 1 0 0 0.00
View dismissal SM Harwood b Steyn 0 2 4 0 0 0.00
45.5 Timber, It's all over! Full and straight, bang on middle, Harwood tries his level best to dig it out but can't get his bat down in time, the stumps are pegged back and the crowd roars 256/10
