    1.5 Taylor is gone, and Tsotsobe has struck in his first over! it was short and climbing just outside off, Taylor looked to go over third man with the late upper cut, but does not get enough distance on the shot and it settles in to the hands of Theron at third man, who takes it on the boundary edge, good well-judged catch 9/1
    4.1 and another one goes! dug in short outside off, Masakadza is in no position to play the pull, but still goes ahead with the shot, and it goes straight to Rusty at mid on, Zimbabwe are struggling here 18/2
    6.3 this time he hits another full delivery straight to mid off, and a diving Amla there makes no mistake with a tumbling catch, and one more batsman perishes 30/3

    15.1 what a start! Done him all ends up. Taibu played all round a straightish ball and it went through the gate. Every batsman knows the horror that lies through the gate and Botha is delighted as it rattles the stumps 77/4

    15.6 bowled him! Through the dreaded gate again! Pitched and zipped off the track, Ervine was playing across it and it clipped the top of off stump. Botha tries to to leap to celebrate but his knee is still hurting and he ends up collapsed in a heap. Smith can't hold back his laughter! 80/5
    16.1 Rusty rattles the stumps this time! Zimbabwe collapsing! Nothing delivery, just back of a length outside off stump but a tame push finds the inside edge and it goes on to the stumps! 80/6
    20.4 Parnell strikes! Top bowling! Fired in full and straight, Dabengwa over-balanced as he tried to flick to leg, ended up in an ugly heap as he was trapped in front 97/7

    24.4 "the end is nigh," cries the commentator without a hint of hyperbole, Cremer gets a short ball but the attempted pull finds a top edge that loops gently into the hands of Amla. Good work from Parnell 106/8
