12.3

Pietersen to Bosman, FOUR, this one finds the gap between long on and deep midwicket, not struck quite so well and he has to be content with four

South Africa 168/0   LE Bosman 77* (35b 5x4 7x6)   KP Pietersen 0.3-0-11-0

South Africa 211/4   JH Kallis 5* (3b 1x4)   LJ Wright 4-0-40-1
17.5

Mahmood to de Villiers, FOUR, skews away off a thick outside, third man is up inside the circle so it bobbles away over the boundary...Mahmood paid for bowling length again
