    0.6 bowled him! A flat-footed Smith pokes outside off, the ball nips in off the seam and takes the inside edge, clattering into the stumps. First blood to Australia 2/1
    2.6 gone! Brilliant work from David Warner in the deep and his bullet-arm has beaten Amla. Ingram pulled the ball, off a good length, over midwicket but it didn't have the legs to reach the rope and coming back for a third Amla was a little off the pace. The throw was a little away from the stumps, but Wade had time to get it back 10/2
    11.5 the partnership is broken! Pattinson floated up a slower cutter outside off and Ingram scythed the drive over cover ... but couldn't get it over Cummins out on the boundary. That'll annoy the South Africans, these two were just starting to build some real momentum 68/3
    18.3 Cummins strikes with the slower delivery! It was another looping offcutter, which Duminy actualy seemed to have picked as he bent into a slog sweep. He sliced under the ball however, to send it rocketing up into the night sky and back down into Watson's lap at cover 133/4
    18.4 two wickets in two balls! Both set batsmen have been dismissed attempting big shots. Cummins pitched this one up and a shot was on, but Miller could only loft it to Warner's hands at long off 133/5
    18.6 three wickets in the over! Again it's the slower ball that does the trick. Botha came charging down the track and didn't know quite what to do with the delivery once it got to him. He was aiming to leg, but the leading edge lobbed weakly to cover 138/6
    19.5 clatter! Peterson had an almighty heave across the line at a straight one, and his leg stump was knocked out of the ground. Not much in the way of a celebration from Watto, but that wicket will almost certainly keep South Africa to less than 150 145/7

    9.2 gone! The move works, Morkel gets the breakthrough. Watson went to work to leg and gets a leading edge that loops to cover for a simple catch 83/2
    0.3 gone! What a start for South Africa, Warner departs. A direct hit from short fine-leg. It was a short ball to start with which Warner didn't play very well as he got into a tangle trying to pull, it lobbed in front of short fine-leg who then took aim and hit direct. Superb from Morne Morkel. 1/1

    10.3 chopped on! Bowled! South Africa are back in the game now. Botha had flighted a couple but this one was fired in fast and flat from round the wicket. Marsh may not have quite read the change of pace, he backed away looking to cut but the ball rushed on with the arm, took the bottom edge and disturbed the leg bail 87/3
    18.5 gone! Hussey falls. He was trying to end the match with a single shot, clearing the left leg and slogging across the line. It was a slower ball from Tsotsobe, he sliced underneath it, and Duminy safely pouched the skied shot. Can South Africa pull it back from here? 141/5
    16.2 gone this time! White tried to repeat the shot but swung across this one a little. The ball went really high again, but the distance wasn't there and Miller set himself beneath the swirling chance. Well, Australia still shouldn't panic, but this wicket will have given South Africa hope 127/4
