Broad to Steyn, no run, cracking delivery, angled in from slightly wide of the crease, pitching and zipping away past Steyn's defensive prod outside off stump

Broad to Steyn, no run, short again, making life uncomfortable here as Steyn rocks back and fends into the off side

94.3

Broad to Steyn, no run, slightly fuller this time and Steyn is pinned to the crease in his defensive stroke, reluctant to get forward

Anderson to Steyn, FOUR, that is a wonderful strike! Not even de Villiers could have played that better. Onto the back foot, and crashed through the covers with a full and straight blade

104.3

Anderson to Steyn, no run, loose drive, but that is doing too much and would have missed leg

104.4

Anderson to Steyn, 1 run, swiped across the line, not quite such good shot selection for those last two deliveries, but he's still there

105.1

Swann to Steyn, no run, tossed up outside off, and defended

105.3

Swann to Steyn, no run, poked back to the bowler

105.4

Swann to Steyn, SIX, Swann is Steyn's bunny! It is official. Three sixes in three overs, and that's the biggest yet. A massive hoist over long-on, and deep into the stands

105.5

Swann to Steyn, 1 run, a pushed single into the covers, and that is their 50 stand. Great effort

South Africa 335/9   DW Steyn 40* (45b 2x4 3x6)

106.1

Anderson to Steyn, no run, attempted yorker, comes out as a low full-toss on leg stump, but no real damage

106.2

Anderson to Steyn, FOUR, epic batting! A fraction short, and Steyn rocks back to butcher that through midwicket! In the end it wasn't perfectly timed, but the intent was plain and shot selection flawless

106.3

Anderson to Steyn, no run, defended on the back foot as Anderson tightens his line. Watchful

107.5

Swann to Steyn, 1 run, pushed down to mid-off, and once again, Ntini has a solitary delivery to survive. Quality strike farming going on out there

108.1

Anderson to Steyn, no run, no fireworks there, just calm watchfulness

108.2

Anderson to Steyn, no run, short, and climbing over the batsman's head. He ducks well

108.3

Anderson to Steyn, OUT, there it is, the end comes at last, and sadly for Steyn he falls short of his half-century. A short delivery, just straight enough to demand a stroke, and Prior behind the stumps gathers a regulation nick

DW Steyn c †Prior b Anderson 47 (66m 58b 3x4 3x6) SR: 81.03

South Africa 343/10   DW Steyn 47 (58b 3x4 3x6)
