    2.5 edged, and gone! Test match bowling from Steyn, and it's too good for Fletcher. The ball was fast, pitched up on off stump and swinging away. Fletcher came forward but couldn't cover the movement and the ball absolutely flew off the outside edge to Kallis at second slip. He took a good, sharp catch right infront of his face, and that's another failure with the bat for Fletcher 4/1
    12.2 one shot too many from Gayle, and he's easily caught off another spiralling top edge. The pressure was mounting on him with Sarwan unable to rotate the strike effectively and he went for another massive swipe to leg. He sent the ball up really high, but Botha was right underneath it at midwicket to hold onto the chance. Big, big wicket there 69/3
    7.4 McLaren strikes! He could have had Gayle, but he's dismissed Bravo in the end. The ball was pitched just short of a length, outside off and Bravo aimed a very optimistic swish to the off side. He was neither forward nor back, just flung the bat at it, and de Villiers snaffled the regulation chance behind the stumps 44/2
    29.1 oh no! That could be it. Morkel back for a new spell, bangs it in outside off, Sarwan attempting a nothing-shot really, open-faced nurdle with planted feet, gets an inside edge on to his off stump 140/5
    26.5 Botha strikes, that's the end for Deonarine. Gets down on one-knee to sweep, hint of extra bounce caught the gloves and it looped to Kallis at short fine leg. He does not drop dollies like that. 130/4
    38.3 very good from Steyn, really thought this through, another slower ball, Ramdin giving himself room looking to carve it over point, but is too early on it and ends up inside-edging on to his stumps 192/6
    39.2 that might well be it. Pollard falls. Fullish, Pollard tried to swing it over long on, but it got the toe end, went high and swirling down to McLaren, who made no mistake and took the catch on the boundary's edge 197/7
    41.3 this is tough for the lower order, not much they can do, Sammy tries to smack it over midwicket, can't time it, gets a top edge down to Kallis on the boundary 203/8
    not out
    42.2 gone this time, in bizarre fashion, it pitched in line, Taylor left it, and ushered it on to his pad, and it's plumb 205/9
    44.1 that's it! All over! Comprehensive victory for South Africa. Rampaul tries to smack it down the ground, doesn't get much of it and Smith takes the catch. Gentle high-fives all round for the South African's. Gayle does not look overly amused, but shakes hands with all the opposition players. 215/10
