91.1

Steyn to Laxman, no run, Starts off with a good-length delivery wide of the stumps. Laxman has nothing to do with it

97.3

Steyn to Laxman, no run, outside off, better line but still can't get the batsman to play

97.4

Steyn to Laxman, no run, a bit straighter, but still not straight enough. Laxman resorts to his shouldering arms.

97.5

Steyn to Laxman, no run, Steyn running in quick but the line is still slightly awry, Laxman can leave it alone, Steyn needs to get it a bit straighter

97.6

Steyn to Laxman, OUT, CRACKER! This time he got it all right, line was on middle and off stump and moving away, length was good and the ball moved away every so beautifully. Laxman shaped to defend it but was castled with the outswing. It's a delivery that fast bowlers dream off and Steyn pulls it off, watching the off stump uprooted from the ground. He's struggled with his line this morning but what a line that was! What seam position! A magic ball there
