    13.1 and he strikes with his first ball in international cricket as Smith picks out long on. Tried to go over his favourite area, but just got underneath it a little and finally a breakthrough 170/1
    16.1 oh, what a shame for Bosman, another full toss but this time he doesn't get hold of it...the bat turned in his hand and Anderson makes good ground at deep midwicket to hold a fine catch 204/4
    14.4 what a catch...Bresnan at long on as pulled off an absolute blinder as Morkel doesn't quite get enough distance hitting into the wind. Bresnan timed his jump perfectly and plucked the ball 192/2
    15.5 another high catch, this time to backward point as Duminy gets a thick outside edge trying to swing hard over the leg side 203/3
    19.4 swung through square leg, de Villiers chances coming back for a second but doesn't get close...no harm in trying at this stage 238/6
    17.3 finally something for Mahmood to enjoy, takes out off stump as Kallis misses a heave across the line...he might have taken some pace off that 214/5

    3.1 first strike for Abdulla, Denly goes for an off-side drive and gets a think inside edge into off stump 20/1
    9.3 another pick-up shot from outside off, but finds midwicket on the edge of the circle 65/2
    15.1 impressive catch from Kuhn on debut, a huge top edge from Trott and the new keeper called early, made excellent ground towards backward square and steadied himself to hold a fine take 117/3
    16.4 the switch hit brings his downfall, done in by a quick, full ball and Pietersen was barely in his 'new' stance when the ball arrived 132/4

    17.3 I think that's out...full, straight, quick and Morgan is left with only leg-stump standing. Was actually in the hitting arc for Morgan, but he just missed it 144/5
    17.6 another goes, the ball again goes miles in the air as Wright tries to find the grass banks on the leg side but instead finds Johan Botha 146/6

    18.3 chipped down the ground and Smith takes a sharp running catch moving round from cover 146/7
    19.2 top fielding from Kallis, direct hit from cover with one stump to aim at and Rashid is short...South Africa have been outstanding today 150/8
