    1.5 gone this time! Warner slashes at a length delivery, slicing under the ball and sending it looping towards mid off ... where the fielder charges in and holds a good, sliding catch. Two ducks in two games for Warner 3/1
    4.3 edged and gone! Wade charged the bowler and slashed at a length delivery, but didn't factor in the extra bounce and could only send a healthy edge through to Kuhn. This is turning into a bit of a top-order wobble now 17/2
    9.1 well-caught by Kuhn! Marsh aimed to heave Theron's first delivery over midwicket but sliced under the ball. The swirling chance came down somewhere near backward point, where Kuhn had charged and called for it. There's a slight delay as the umpire checks for the no-ball, and though it's very tight the delivery is legitimate and Marsh is on his way. That's put a dent in Australia's fightback 50/3
    10.3 big wicket for South Africa! Hussey has picked out long on...used his feet to Botha but didn't quite get the connection and was a well-judged catch near the boundary 65/4
    16.4 football meets cricket! Excellent skills from Parnell in his follow through. Marsh got an inside edge into his pads which bobbled down by his feet. White called for the single, but Parnell sprinted from his follow through and kicked the ball into the stumps 106/6
    13.5 another goes and Tsotsobe deserved that. Smith tries to work a slower ball off-cutter to the leg side and gets a leading edge to cover for a simple catch 87/5

    19.6 finally on target. A yorker extracts off stump as Marsh tries to guide it through the off side but not after some significant damage was done 147/8
    17.5 slashes outside off stump and gets a thin edge through to the keeper. Australia just can't build momentum in this innings. The umpires check for the no-ball, but this Theron has half his foot behind the line. 112/7

    0.6 bowled him! Bollinger strikes for Australia. Once again he's nicely full and Amla is caught on the crease when he should really have been forward. He swished across the line at the delivery but looked back to see his off stump pegged back. This is going to be a tricky chase for South Africa ... 5/1

    8.2 but he's gone now! There'll be no match-saving innings from Smith. He tried to nudge this into the leg side but got a thick leading edge that flew back at Hussey, who made no mistake. South Africa are in some serious bother now. Time for a Parnell special? 48/4
    3.1 chopped on! Ingram tried to seize on a touch of width from Cummins but this time he played over the top of it, and the inside edge cannoned into his stumps. South Africa wobble ... 18/2
    3.5 quality cricket from Australia. A searing Cummins delivery finds a thick edge, and David Hussey tumbles to his right at a wide slip to cling onto the chance. The 'wrong' Hussey? Perhaps not. South Africa are really struggling, and Smith now has a chance to go from zero to hero ... 18/3
    13.6 that could be the game! Botha goes for the reverse sweep, it comes off the top edge and finds short third man 82/6
    12.5 big wicket! Pattinson is on target, was quite a full delivery and Miller tried to pull it through midwicket from a crouched position but is middle stump is rattled 80/5
    14.4 gone! They are falling quickly now. A sharp return catch by a quick bowler. Kuhn went for the drive and Pattinson took it cleanly a little to his right 84/7
