    78.3 A tame dismissal in the end. It was a short-of-length delivery angling away from Smith who went for the pull. The bat-face was shut and the ball rolled away to the stumps. Smith raises his bat as he walks off the field. He had stitched together his 21st hundred today and has put SA in a commanding position 283/3
    23.1 Petersen has thrown his wicket away. There was a hundred for the taking but he is gone now. It was a nicely flighted delivery and he went for the big sweep shot but top edged it towards fine-leg. Roach rushed in from the deep and dived forward to take a very good catch. Shillingford gets the reward for his effort to keep flighting the ball 99/1
    56.3 A just reward for some really impressive bowling. The top spinner does the trick. Shillingford has harassed Amla for some time now and finally gets his man. Amla groped forward, unsure of the destination of the ball, and the ball went of the shoulder of the bat to first slip. Very impressive stuff from Shillingford 211/2
    118.2 Kallis falls after reaching his ton. A dismissal similar to Petersen. He went for the big sweep shot and top edges it to deep backward square-leg where Rampaul back-pedals, gets the hand over his head and stretches back to hold on to a good catch 421/4

    123.5 Oh what has he done? It was a short delivery and he could have hit it anywhere but he pulled it straight to short midwicket. 442 for 5. 442/5

    31.1 Castled! Chris Gayle has dragged it on. Full delivery outside off stump, from round the stumps, Gayle's weight was on the back foot when he went for the big cover drive. The ball collided with the inside edge and fell on the stumps 106/2
    3.4 First wicket is down. It was a back-of-length delivery that straightened outside off stump. Dowlin pushes out at it, bat away from the body, and edges it to third slip where AB dives to his right to take it. Very nicely pouched! Enter Deonarine. They had Nash batting at no 3 in the first Test. 13/1
    45.1 Dragged on. It was the back-of-length delivery outside off stump and Deonarine went too hard at it. He tried to force it off the back foot - neither a cut, nor a drive- and the bat came down in an angle. The ball caught the inside edge and clatter! He was cramped for room there and went too hard at that. 151/3
    150.5 Something has happened. Finally. It was a flighted delivery full outside off and Chanderpaul tried to lazily work it to the on side and gets a leading edge back to the bowler. Chanders out after accumulating 166. He was hit on the helmet by a Steyn bouncer and then responded superbly yesterday. Today, he chose to bat cautiously. 471/5
    95.6 Nash is run out Oh dear what a way to go. He had cut to backward point and set for a non-existent run. It bounced over the head of AB who leaped, grabbed the ball and fired a direct hit. Nash had turned back and tried to dive bacm inside the crease but couldn't beat the throw. He must have thought that the ball would bounce over AB but it was a very risky move to step down the track. That's that. He falls after hitting his second Test ton. 371/4
    162.6 And he falls after the slow crawl. He leans forward to play the cover drive and edges it to Boucher. The wheels are coming off 486/7
    153.2 And Ramdin has failed on this track. What do you do? Short and wide and he cut it straight to backward point. Oh well. 476/6
    163.6 from round the stumps, angled across Shilly who guides it straight to second slip. West Indies slip further. Shilly was trying to get the bat out of the way but was too late in doing so 486/8
    181.1 Done in by the bouncer. Benn took his eyes of the ball and pushed out his bat an a shield. The ball popped of the handle to Kallis at first slip 546/10
    179.5 Entertainment ends. From Rampaul at least. Victim no 500 for Boucher and he is congratulated by his team-mates. It was the short delivery outside off and Rampaul edged the cut. No other keeper has touched that landmark. Ever. Boucher stands alone. A special moment. 545/9
