    3.6 Richards does not make much use of the reprieve. Tsotsobe changes the angle and comes in from round the stumps, pings it in short of a length outside off, and Richards dangles the bat like he were fishing in high-tide. The edge flies into the broad presence of Kallis at first slip and he tumbles behind after pouching it 22/1
    10.5 gone. As is often the case, a period of good bowling is followed by a soft dismissal off a not so good ball. Very short and looping outside off, the lack of pace makes Gayle pull rather than cut, and the uncontrolled shot carries easily to Smith at mid on, whose reaction suggests that it was a planned dismissal. Good on the South Africans. 45/2
    39.5 nicely done! Sharp spinning ball, angling in and pitching outside off, and straightening, strikes Chanders in front of the sticks and would have taken out off stump. Botha appeals loudly, catches his breath and appeals even more loudly, before Umpire Malcolm's finger goes up. 161/5
    24.3 you can take the keeping role away from Bouch, but you can't keep him quiet, can you! The gloves are off, but the acrobatics are alive. Driven expansively, in the air, and it was flying over Boucher's head at cover. And then he took off, he cruised mid-air, soared high, put his hand out, and plucked it like an apple. Take a Bow-cher! 96/3
    34.1 Tsotsobe does Bravo in with a lethal leg cutter - a carbon copy of his dismissal from Dominica - Bravo played inside the line and missed, the ball eluded his outside edge and crashed into the timber. Great piece of bowling! 137/4

    46.5 anti-climax.. That was not a slower ball, it was a full toss on off stump, asking to be tonked, but Pollard for some reason was early into the shot and ended up spooning it feebly towards extra cover for a simple catch. Ah, well.. nervous in the 20s again. 219/6

    13.6 oh my, Amla does himself in! Length ball on the pads, Amla flicks straight to Pollard at midwicket and hares down the wicket. Kallis realised the danger and sends him back but it is too late. Pollard rifles in a sharp under-arm throw right next to the stumps and Ramdin has little to do. 76/2
    8.3 nicked and taken well by Ramdin! Smith's not looked himself so far on tour, and no difference today. He was denied the chance to come down the track with the keeper standing up, so he stayed in the crease and threw his bat at a short of length ball, angling across well wide of him. It got a faint outside edge, and Ramdin pouched it well 40/1
    30.5 against the run of play, Kallis has lost his wicket. Short and wide outside off, Kallis looked to cut, there was some noise as the ball went past into Ramdin's gloves. Kallis expressed his displeasure at being given out, and it is understandable, given how easy he made batting look out there. 163/4
    18.6 and the captain does the trick! It was a good over from Gayle, and AB de Villiers was keen to dominate, he jumped out of the crease and took up the challenge to hit over long on, but did not get close enough to the flight, and ended up top-edging a swirler high into the outfield, and when it came down, Chanderpaul was waiting. 105/3
    43.3 gotcha! The trick worked like a charm. Duminy eyed the vacant leg side spaces like a child eyes candy. The trap was laid! Taylor bowled it fast and short, angling across, but Duminy was insistent on pulling it all the way around to the leg side. He was in no position for the shot, and ended up chopping it on to the stumps. Well done Taylor, that dismissal was Taylor-made by him! 211/6
    35.6 gone! Boucher's struggle comes to an end. That was short and wide outside off, and Boucher went for the late cut instead of the square cut. It was sliced in the air, and though it was dying quickly on him, Chanders at short third man kept his nerve, went down on his knees and scooped it before it landed to his left. 175/5
    47.1 another twist in the tale! Pollard bowls a slow half tracker, Botha goes after it and had the right idea. He got under it and went for a pull over cow corner, but somehow got more top-edge than middle. Dave Bernard ran across from midwicket towards his right, and dived full on to his take it inches from the ground. Wonderful catch! 234/7
    47.4 when push comes to shove, Colonel Chanders is the man to back on! Off cutter from Pollard, strikes Roelof's pad and bat as he crunched it straight to short third, where Chanders has been on vigil all day like an old little fox. He swooped on it, and threw down the striker's end stumps with McLaren a yard outside. The Triniposse roars! 235/8

    48.6 stay put folks, the game is not over! Bravo sticks to his guns and delivers another slower ball, very full, Langeveldt is sucked into the shot early, and misses the hoick, gets a faint outside edge, through to Ramdin. 246/9
