View dismissal L Vincent lbw b Botha 15 41 20 1 0 75.00
9.6 got him! A reverse sweep from Vincent to a straight, full ball which raps him on the toe and that's bang in front of middle. What an awful, hopeless shot that was 66/4
View dismissal BB McCullum c Duminy b Pollock 9 9 8 0 1 112.50
2.2 shot! But caught! He absolutely nailed that on the front foot; a crunching, satisfying crack of the bat, but the ball found cover who didn't need to move a muscle, taking an easy catch in front of his nose 14/1
View dismissal JM How c Duminy b Pollock 14 11 11 1 1 127.27
4.6 gone this time. Poor shot; he tried to smack this over long-on but got a leading edge to mid-off who swallowed a simple skier 34/2
View dismissal LRPL Taylor c Kallis b Morkel 7 9 8 0 1 87.50
6.4 fine bowling from Morkel! That's the length on this pitch; it's got plenty of bounce and the taller bowlers are extracting it. It rises on Taylor who fends it straight to first slip 45/3
View dismissal SB Styris c Smith b Steyn 30 39 27 3 0 111.11
16.2 oh, well caught Smith! Styris thumped this on the front foot, timing it very well but Smith, at mid-off, timed his leap to his left perfectly to clutch a fine catch above his head 98/7
View dismissal GJ Hopkins c de Villiers b Morkel 6 11 10 0 0 60.00
12.3 oh dear. A meaningless shot to a poor, wide delivery outside off. He just patted it to point who scooped it up at ankle height to take an easy catch. A clueless stroke, really; rather like a coach might angle his bat to give the slips catching practice 78/5
View dismissal DL Vettori* c Morkel b Pollock 2 9 7 0 0 28.57
14.3 short, he tries to pull it but gets a top edge to Morkel at mid-on who back-peddles nicely to take a tumbling catch. New Zealand are finished 84/6

View dismissal GC Smith* c †McCullum b Mills 7 21 16 1 0 43.75
4.6 goddim! Smith's poor run of form continues as he plays a horrid, cross-batted stroke and gets a thick outside edge to McCullum 33/2
View dismissal JH Kallis c Mills b Gillespie 4 6 5 1 0 80.00
1.4 goddim! A straight bouncer from Gillespie which Kallis hooks straight down fine-leg's throat 6/1
View dismissal JP Duminy st †McCullum b Vettori 33 34 19 3 2 173.68
8.6 gone! Very well bowled from Vettori, beating Duminy in the flight. He came prancing down the pitch, was beaten by the turn and McCullum does the rest. 64/3
AB de Villiers not out 52 70 45 4 1 115.55
View dismissal MV Boucher lbw b Patel 7 16 10 0 0 70.00
12.3 he's got him! Boucher went for the sweep, was beaten by the turn and up goes the finger. He is decidedly unhappy 89/4
View dismissal SM Pollock c Taylor b Patel 6 9 5 0 0 120.00
14.3 gone! Taylor's taken a blinder at deep midwicket, as Pollock tried to pull this but couldn't time it. Taylor, crouching low, took it inches above the turf and a metre inside the rope 103/5
View dismissal JA Morkel c Vettori b Styris 9 12 11 0 1 81.81
17.2 gone, beaten by the offie! Morkel mistimes it straight to Vettori at cover. A wasteful stroke, frankly 116/6
View dismissal VD Philander run out (Taylor/Vincent) 2 10 7 0 0 28.57
19.2 from Mills, cut to short third man again who lines up a throw. There's a mix-up between the batsmen and Vincent, at the non-striker's end, collects the ball and shatters the stumps to dismiss Philander! 124/7
