    15.4 Direct hit and Rohit's got to go! Superb athleticism by Miller at short cover, Raina pushed it with soft hands towards cover and set off quickly for a single, Rohit wasn't as quick off the blocks and in the meantime Miller attacked the ball and in one motion under-armed it to the stumps on the dive, Rohit looked in trouble even at normal speed, the third umpire confirmed it 65/4
    5.1 the bouncer claims Dhawan and Morkel strikes first ball! Morkel hits the deck hard, Dhawan wants to pull but gets a top edge, de Kock runs several yards to his right and takes the skier 14/1
    14.4 safely pouched at first slip! Good delivery by McLaren, this was on a good length outside off, forced Kohli to play at it, ended up stabbing at the ball and the edge flew to Kallis at first slip 60/2
    14.6 that's a terrific ball from McLaren that beat Yuvraj all ends up! From over the wicket, lands on middle on a good length, Yuvraj played all around it, the ball just brushed the pad and hit the top of the middle stump, the stumps are upright and the bails go flying, talk about accuracy from McLaren 60/3
    22.3 Appeal for a run out and Raina's in trouble! Raina pulled a short one from front of his face and placed it to deep square leg, he was challenging Steyn's arm, flat and accurate throw to de Kock, the wicketkeeper looks to collect it and the force of the ball takes his glove towards the stumps and Raina's dive is not enough. Initially it looked like a direct hit but an accurate throw nevertheless 108/5
    40.2 chops it on! This was a length ball which Dhoni looked to force away to the off side, inside edge and the ball bounces once before pegging back the leg stump, his lone vigil ends 217/9
    29.5 Through the gate! From over the wicket, pitched up on the stumps, looked to drive through the off side but left a gap between pad and bat, the ball nips back in and pegs back the middle stump, the Old Fox Kallis has struck 158/6
    34.4 there was a sound as the ball passed the batsman and McLaren and the umpire were convinced, Ashwin didn't seem so. It nipped back in and Ashwin was playing from the crease, there was a gap between pad and bat, could have taken the inside edge or the top of the pad. It certainly clipped the top of the pad, was there an edge as well? Not convincing. You could say that Ashwin was unlucky 183/7
    36.2 that was too quick for Bhuvneshwar, this was fired outside off and moving away, the batsman chased the angle and offered a low catch to Kallis at second slip 190/8
    not out
    40.6 a simple return catch to end the mauling! Pitched up on the stumps and Shami gets forward and chips it back to Steyn, a catch as easy as the win for the hosts 217/10
