    7.4 The in-form Amla goes, short outside off and he goes for the pull but gets it high on the bat and finds Nehra at mid-on, South Africa in trouble 61/3

    2.2 South Africa have suffered a major blow, short outside off and moving away and Gibbs tries to be a little cheeky, attempted to paddle it fine, gets an inside edge and it lands on the stumps 17/1
    5.4 Roelof's stay ends, comes down the track and tries to heave it over square leg, ends up, like he very often does, miscuing it into the off side, lands safely in the palms of Raina at cover 47/2
    10.2 he's dragged it on! Short of a good length outside off and it kept a little low, tried to crack it hard past point, got an inside edge straight onto the stumps 83/4

    13.6 fires it short on the off, comes on much quicker than Peterson expected, he shaped up for a pull but was a little late onto the shot, missed and the stumps took a thrashing 102/5
    14.2 another one falls! Coming round the wicket and Yusuf fires it on middle and off, angling in, Duminy gets forward to defend but it's pushed in quick and he misses, is rapped on the pads and appears to be struck in line, the umpire had no doubt and raised his finger immediately, people who have followed this series will not be surprised by the way he was out 103/6
    22.2 he's given lbw! Turned in from the off stump as he bent low to sweep it fine, it seemed to strike him in line, if that didn't hit the bat he's a gonner, but we need replays to confirm that. The umpire certainly thought, after a bit of a pause, that there was no contact with the bat. We need to have another look at that, replays show there was no bat involved, would have gone on to hit middle and leg 134/7

    36.5 gone! Nehra gets it to nip back in a hint after pitching, Parnell gets forward to crunch it through extra cover, gets an inside edge and onto the stumps, ends a bit of frustrating stand for India, worth 77 211/8
    37.5 India are a wicket away from victory now, bowled it on a good length on middle and beat Steyn's attempted drive down the ground to crash into the stumps 216/9
    42.5 Game over! Langeveldt charges down the track and mistimes an attempted chip over midwicket, ends up playing it towards Ashish Nehra who dives forward to take a good low catch 248/10
