    62.3 Gambhir falls after some stiff resistance. It's a bouncer from round the stumps and it moved in towards the leg side, and Gambhir tried to get his bat out of the way but it brushed the gloves and Boucher took a nice diving catch. Strangled down the leg side. 120/3
    11.6 Morne takes out Sehwag and the crowd go wild! It was delivered from over the wicket: It landed short of length outside off, bounced and straightened, Sehwag leaned forward to defend and stabbed it of the outer edge to first slip. The umpire checked whether it was a no ball from the third ump. Itsy bitsy teeny weeny bit of the leg behind the white line and third umpire says out. 27/1
    48.5 there's the breakthrough South Africa were searching for, Dravid looks to defend a short of length delivery off the front foot, as he has countless times today, but this time he can't middle it, it hits high on the bat, takes the outside edge and flies to third slip at head height, is there still a twist in this game? 106/2
