    15.3 Peterson strikes, he has been flighting the ball consistently, lures Nicol into a big shot, he only manages a thick edge that looked to be flying past Kallis at slip, but the great man gets to his right to take it as he tumbles to the ground 58/2
    6.4 and there is the breakthrough, they have bowled too well to not have a wicket early, Tsotsobe pitches it up, and angles it across Guptill, who reaches out to push at it, and feathers it through to AB 25/1
    29.6 what an outstanding catch at deep point, McCullum had got hold of this length delivery, and had sliced it hard, Peterson did not have much time, he did very well to run to his left and dived to hold on, no reviews needed for that one, Baz has to walk back this time 137/3
    40.6 big strike from Tsotsobe, he got Guptill with a similar delivery earlier, now he has Williamson pushing at an angled length ball outside off, thick edge is snapped up low by a diving AB to his right 194/5
    32.6 a big wicket for South Africa, Ryder holes out, a short ball just outside off from Kallis, Ryder wants to club that over the leg side, gets a top edge, the ball soars high and towards Graeme Smith at deep square leg, no mistake there, this was shaping up as a good over for New Zealand, but South Africa won't be complaining now 153/4
    44.1 Franklin falls in pursuit of runs, looks to loft this length delivery over mid off but cannot get it high and far enough to beat Amla who scrambles back to take a well-judged catch 211/6

    46.6 right through him at 139 kph, and the middle stump is rattled, Ellis looked to use the angle on this length ball to swing it over midwicket, missed, Steyn did not 230/7
    49.5 off stump is knocked back, Nathan looks to swing a pitched up ball on the leg side, does not connect, the ball was right on target 249/9
    47.4 fine work from AB down the leg side, Bracewell's back leg is out of his crease as he pushes well forward, and AB has the bails off quickly as the ball slips past Bracewell down leg 234/8

    4.2 there is the outside edge, and Smith is gone too, Mills slides it full and wide outside off across Smith, who goes chasing after it, and the thick edge is taken at slip 17/2
    9.5 Bracewell has taken out Kallis with the short ball, Kallis looked to go behind square leg as he swivelled late for the pull, but was hurried into the shot and ended up lobbing it to square leg 35/3
