    1.3 Rohit fails. Again. It was yet another delivery that was slanted across him outside off and Rohit cuts it straight to backward point. 1/1
    9.4 Trapped! Lonwabo takes out his second victim. It was a slightly slower one, landed full in length around off and moved in. Parthiv fell over a touch on that front foot and tried to waft across the line and missed. It would have taken out the leg stump 32/2

    14.6 Smith takes a lovely catch! Yuvraj went for the paddle sweep but didn't connect well. The ball lobbed towards leg gully. Smith rushed to his right from slips and the ball was dying on him but he dived full stretch to pouch it inches off the turf 49/3
    26.5 stumped, a wicket just when it appeared they were recovering well, it went on straight from Peterson, Raina took a couple of steps down the track, it was short outside off, was beaten in flight, then tried to play for the turn and dab to the off side but the ball didn't turn in as much as he hoped and de Villiers did a neat job behind the stumps, the pressure is back on now 112/4
    28.4 Soft dismissal! It was a delivery outside off that stopped a touch on Dhoni who ended up checking his intended punch shot , and pushed the ball straight to short extra cover! Gone! He trudges back to the hut. 123/5
    29.3 Morne takes out Yusuf with a superb delivery. It was full in length just outside off and seamed away at the last instant. Yusuf stumbled forward, late, and had a poke at it. He was trying to waft it to the on side! Fatal. Edge and gone! Morne roars! 128/6
