    14.2 hits a length, straightens, Karthik pushes it back, kisses Langeveldt's fingertips as it passes, then hits the stumps with Sehwag outside the crease, sad but true 89/2
    1.5 short outside off, slashed off the back foot into the covers where Gibbs slides to his left and intercepts, Tendulkar sets off and gets sent back by a hesitant Sehwag but turns around and looks on as Parnell collects the ball and has plenty of time to break the sticks 10/1
    18.2 gone! Surprised by the short ball, Karthik top-edges a hurried pull to Petersen at mid-on, easy catch off the splice of the bat and that's the third wicket down 116/3
    23.1 Dhoni is gone! that is a big breakthrough, a short of length ball outside off, Dhoni seemed to be into his shot a touch early, his drive lobs towards mid-off where Albie pouches it low 138/4
    36.2 fantastic catch from Gibbs to break the partnership, it was a fuller delivery than the previous one, Kohli chipped it to the on-side, Gibbs leaps to his left from short midwicket and plucks a low catch 204/5
    43.4 full outside off, Raina wafts at it, gets a thick outside edge, easy catch for Boucher, and India's chances of reaching 300 takes a hit 260/7
    39.3 this time Yusuf doesn't get hold of it, it was a low full toss outside off, Yusuf was looking to hit it towards leg, the bat turned in his hand and flew towards extra cover where an overhead catch is taken, timely strike for South Africa 231/6
    45.5 South Africa continue to make regular breakthroughs, Jadeja goes in a similar manner to Raina, it was pitched up and outside off, Jadeja looks to drive, gets an outside edge to the keeper 274/8
    49.2 the comedy running finally results in a wicket, a back of length outside off, Praveen swats it to long-off, he wants the second and is on his way, Nehra then sends him back, a great throw from de Villiers from the deep, Langeveldt does the rest 292/9

    8.4 Bosman gets a little adventurous and pays the price for it, he makes a bit of room to crash it past point, the ball hits his leg stump, Praveen glares as the batsman walks off, passion and adrenaline rush there in the middle 58/1
    11.2 charges down the pitch to launch it for six, ends up slicing it down long-off's throat, Kohli takes it easily, very crucial breakthrough for India 64/2
    42.6 timber! Kallis goes for broke and has his stumps rearranged, he swivels and tries to bludgeon it over the on side, swishes and misses and the ball hits his off stump, the stumps are upright but the bails go flying 225/8
    19.1 Jadeja deceives him with the arm ball, de Villiers makes room to smash that through the off side, misses it completely and the ball crashes onto the middle and leg stumps 109/3
    25.5 Sreesanth the man there! He tucks it down to deep square leg and risks the second run, Sreesanth charges forward and throws it flat and quick to Dhoni, he breaks the stumps but Petersen is guilty of not grounding his bat, it was in the air and it took the 3rd umpire a bit of time to be absolutely sure 134/4
    27.6 Nehra punches the air in delight! He gets the ball tpo nip back in from outside off, the ball skids through and appears to hit him in line with the off stump in normal speed, but for some reason Albie looks disappointed with the decision, was he upset with himself or the decision? I really don't know yet, need to see another replay 142/5
    31.2 the bowling change works! Sreesanth tempts him to go for the slash and Boucher obliges, a touch wide outside off, there's a thick edge and big deflection off the toe of the bat, Dhoni falls to his right and takes it 161/6
    34.6 he goes for the sweep but pays the price, flatter and quicker delivery by Pathan, Botha is on his knee and the ball hits the base of the pad, the umpire Saheba had no doubt 180/7
    49.6 and India pull it off! Parnell makes room and the ball flies to third man off the toe of the bat, Sreesanth fires the throw wide of Dhoni who stretches and breaks the stumps, Parnell goes for the second but cannot make it in time, Dhoni and the rest know they've prevailed and they wait for confirmation from the third umpire 297/10

    49.2 timber! The leg stump is flattened! Praveen bowls the leg cutter, Steyn waltzes down the pitch and tries to mow it over the on side, swings too early because of the change of pace, looked back to see the deforestation behind him 290/9
