South Africa 34/2   JH Kallis 14* (16b 2x4)
17.1

Broad to Kallis, no run, Broad has an important job following that good over, and starts well on off stump, Kallis jumps back and defends

South Africa 35/2   JH Kallis 15* (22b 2x4)
18.1

Onions to Kallis, no run, Onions continues to bowl a good, probing line and length. Kallis defends with bat jabbing down to suggest it kept a little low

18.2

20.3

Swann to Kallis, no run, a touch more air and a slightly false defensive stroke into the leg side

23.6

Trott to Kallis, no run, this one leaps up at Kallis from a decent length, and he rips his bottom hand off the handle as he defends. Could have been Malcolm Marshall the way he played that

24.2

Anderson to Kallis, no run, lovely delivery, full, jagging away, Kallis leans forward to defend but it zips past the outside edge

24.3

Anderson to Kallis, no run, good again, the full length makes Kallis defend from the front foot, but he's hanging in his crease and defends late on it

24.4

Anderson to Kallis, no run, this time Kallis is more solidly forward and defending from off stump to the cover region

Anderson to Kallis, no run, looking for the yorker from wide of the crease, lands it well, but Kallis is up to the task and blocks it out to mid off

South Africa 84/2   JH Kallis 34* (60b 3x4)
31.1

Swann to Kallis, 1 run, driven with hard hands, and Swann's subtle spin skews off an inside-edge to backward square. He's got him in a bit of bother at the moment

South Africa 85/2   JH Kallis 35* (61b 3x4)
32.1

South Africa 92/2   JH Kallis 36* (73b 3x4)
36.6

38.1

Broad to Kallis, no run, angled bat and defended into the covers

38.2

Broad to Kallis, no run, that one jags off the seam, which is encouragement for Broad, but not the buzzing movement we saw with the new ball. Either way, Kallis wears that one painfully in the midriff

38.3

Broad to Kallis, FOUR, edged and the soft hands keeps that down, while the baking Natal sun has sped up the outfield. The combined effect is a boundary

40.1

South Africa 103/2   JH Kallis 44* (87b 4x4)
42.4

Trott to Kallis, no run, driven with style down to mid on

42.5

Trott to Kallis, no run, Kallis hangs back in his crease from this searing 72mph delivery, and defends. Are England missing a fifth bowler?

42.6

Trott to Kallis, 3 runs, floated up around off stump, Kallis obligingly cover drives it towards the boundary where some ungainly but effective fielding from Anderson saves a run. It brings up the 100th partnership, from a neat 200 deliveries, and it's only the second ever between these two. Oddly

South Africa 110/2   JH Kallis 47* (90b 4x4)
43.1

South Africa 111/2   JH Kallis 48* (91b 4x4)

44.2

Trott to Kallis, no run, driven handsomely but straight to the cover fielder

44.3

Trott to Kallis, FOUR, well, more regret for England. Trott finds the edge (somehow) and it flies though a massive gap between the keeper and slip, in the air, for four to bring up Kallis's fifty. And a crucial one it's been in the circumstances

44.4

Trott to Kallis, no run, stands tall and forces it away off the back foot to cover

44.5

Trott to Kallis, 2 runs, a touch too short, and worked away to midwicket

44.6

Trott to Kallis, no run, Trott is clearly pumped with his near-miss, steams in and Kallis defends solidly, doesn't stop Trott from roaring an appeal, presumably thought it could have caught pad first. It didn't

South Africa 117/2   JH Kallis 54* (97b 5x4)
45.4

46.4

46.5

Trott to Kallis, 3 runs, timed dreamily through the off side, fullish delivery, and Kallis leant on it and it flew through short cover where only the slow outfield and diving Anderson prevented four

South Africa 130/2   JH Kallis 63* (109b 5x4)
49.1

Swann to Kallis, no run, Swann continues and has a bit of an lbw appeal that fails to interest anyone

49.2

Swann to Kallis, no run, good ball, Kallis defends uncertainly from the crease

49.3

Swann to Kallis, no run, stretches forward and defends again

49.4

Swann to Kallis, no run, another half appeal as Kallis shoves his pad and pad at one outside off stump

49.5

Swann to Kallis, 1 run, a touch fuller, draws a stylish drive where a diving cover restricts it to a single

South Africa 135/2   JH Kallis 64* (114b 5x4)
50.6

Onions to Kallis, FOUR, far too short, and it gently sits up at Kallis who bashes it through midwicket for four with a pull shot. Ruined an otherwise excellent comeback over

South Africa 141/2   JH Kallis 68* (115b 6x4)
51.2

Swann to Kallis, no run, pushed across at Kallis who leans forward and defends

51.3

Swann to Kallis, no run, pushed across again, quite flat, and defended

51.4

51.5

Swann to Kallis, no run, defended back down the pitch to the bowler

51.6

Swann to Kallis, no run, turned to short leg from a good length, but Swann isn't looking that threatening here

South Africa 142/2   JH Kallis 68* (120b 6x4)
52.2

South Africa 151/2   JH Kallis 74* (128b 7x4)
54.1

55.2

Swann to Kallis, no run, continuing the round the wicket ploy, but doesn't cause Kallis any problems here
