Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100  | Overs 101-150

34.6

Shahadat Hossain to McKenzie, OUT, 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.

ND McKenzie c Mehrab Hossain jnr b Shahadat Hossain 42 (172m 118b 7x4 0x6) SR: 35.59

South Africa 102/1   GC Smith 54* (97b 8x4)   Shahadat Hossain 7-0-27-1

86.4

Mashrafe Mortaza to Amla, OUT, 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.

HM Amla b Mashrafe Mortaza 112 (205m 165b 12x4 0x6) SR: 67.87

South Africa 327/2   GC Smith 157* (245b 17x4 1x6)   Mashrafe Mortaza 19.4-4-59-1

87.3

Mahbubul Alam to Smith, OUT, 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.

GC Smith b Mahbubul Alam 157 (422m 248b 17x4 1x6) SR: 63.30

South Africa 327/3   JH Kallis 0* (2b)   Mahbubul Alam 18.3-5-50-1

Shakib Al Hasan to Kallis, OUT, gone! Kallis, out of his nature, goes for the big shot over the top, and hits the ball straight down mid-on's throaght.

JH Kallis c Mohammad Ashraful b Shakib Al Hasan 16 (56m 35b 4x4 0x6) SR: 45.71

South Africa 352/4   AG Prince 8* (29b 1x4)   Shakib Al Hasan 25.5-1-96-1

101.3

Shakib Al Hasan to de Villiers, OUT, 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.

AB de Villiers c †Mushfiqur Rahim b Shakib Al Hasan 3 (17m 15b 0x4 0x6) SR: 20.00

Shakib Al Hasan to Boucher, OUT, and that's another one! Straight delivery deceiving Boucher who plays around it and top of off-stump is hit.

MV Boucher b Shakib Al Hasan 15 (32m 34b 1x4 0x6) SR: 44.11

South Africa 404/6   AG Prince 37* (63b 3x4 1x6)   Shakib Al Hasan 32.2-2-117-3

115.3

Shakib Al Hasan to Morkel, OUT, 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.

M Morkel c Mohammad Ashraful b Shakib Al Hasan 8 (17m 12b 1x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

South Africa 420/7   AG Prince 45* (76b 4x4 1x6)   Shakib Al Hasan 34.3-3-123-4

117.6

Shakib Al Hasan to Steyn, OUT, 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.

DW Steyn c Tamim Iqbal b Shakib Al Hasan 1 (12m 10b 0x4 0x6) SR: 10.00

South Africa 427/8   AG Prince 51* (81b 4x4 1x6)   Shakib Al Hasan 36-3-129-5

M Ntini c †Mushfiqur Rahim b Mahbubul Alam 5 (21m 13b 1x4 0x6) SR: 38.46

South Africa 441/9   AG Prince 59* (98b 5x4 1x6)   Mahbubul Alam 24.5-8-62-2
