View dismissal GC Smith* b Mahbubul Alam 157 422 248 17 1 63.30
87.3 and another one! Full and just outside off, nips back and Smith tries to go through the leg side again, misses and the ball cannons into his off-stump. Another good innings from the skipper. 327/3
View dismissal ND McKenzie c Mehrab Hossain jnr b Shahadat Hossain 42 172 118 7 0 35.59
34.6 and there he goes. McKenzie goes for the big square drive after Hossain bowls a wide half-volley. Scoops it just enough so that backward point can grab it out of the air. 102/1
View dismissal HM Amla b Mashrafe Mortaza 112 205 165 12 0 67.87
86.4 gone! Amla seems to just have played around it a bit, got good swing and some movement off the deckand Amla edges it right into his stumps. Good innings comes to an end. 327/2
View dismissal JH Kallis c Mohammad Ashraful b Shakib Al Hasan 16 56 35 4 0 45.71

View dismissal AB de Villiers c †Mushfiqur Rahim b Shakib Al Hasan 3 17 15 0 0 20.00
101.3 gone, another stupid dismissal. De Villiers takes on the spinner on a deck with a lot of turn and bounce, he comes down the track and gets a fine little edge, either way he was 3 metres out of his crease and the keeper dislodged the bails just to be safe.Goodbye. 365/5
View dismissal MV Boucher b Shakib Al Hasan 15 32 34 1 0 44.11
111.2 and that's another one! Straight delivery deceiving Boucher who plays around it and top of off-stump is hit. 404/6
View dismissal M Morkel c Mohammad Ashraful b Shakib Al Hasan 8 17 12 1 0 66.66
115.3 and there goes another one. Morkel attempts the big sweep shot, gets the top edge and skyes the ball. Ashraful has to make some ground to get to that and does well. Good catch. 420/7
View dismissal DW Steyn c Tamim Iqbal b Shakib Al Hasan 1 12 10 0 0 10.00
117.6 Steyn goes for the big heave over the top. Gets a thick edge and the ball flies to point who takes a good diving catch. 427/8
