    13.3 chopped on! Kallis strikes, and Watson falls for 49. He was just trying to run this down to third man, but it seemed in to him, taking a thick inside edge and cannoning into the stumps. This could revive South Africa 78/2
    6.6 gone! Morkel hits back. Angled across outside off, Warner was in two minds and in the end the ball runs off the toe end as he tries to leave 38/1
    14.3 there's another one! A soft dismissal for Ponting. Botha floated one down on off stump and Ponting just popped it straight back into his waiting hands. South Africa are right back into this now 82/3
    25.1 first ball! What a start for Duminy. Round the wicket, full on the stumps, Clarke goes for a drive and gets an inside edge into his pads which then cannons into the stumps 130/4

    34.1 bowled him! Duminy strikes straight after the interval. Duminy arrowed one down at middle, Marsh gave himself some room but the ball rushed straight on and clattered into middle stump. Just 67 needed by Australia, this is going to get tight 156/5

    41.5 time for another twist?! Haddin couldn't restrain himself. He stood on leg stump and tried to clear the off side but picked out deep cover 194/6
    44.5 gone! This game refuses to die. Johnson chases a length ball outside off and gets an edge which carries low to Boucher. It was a good catch. 213/7
