    9.1 excellent reflexes by Peterson! Bowled full on the off stump, Warner picks the length and swats it firmly but straight towards the bowler, Peterson reacts well, bends down and takes it low. 70/3
    1.5 timber! Parnell gets one, fullish on the off stump, held its line, Clarke had decided he would go after that one, bowled at 143 kmph, he makes room to smash that over extra cover, misses and the stumps take a beating! 5/1
    3.2 poor shot really, hit a good length on middle and leg, Ponting stayed in his crease and tried to clear mid-on, wasn't to the pitch at all, ended up mistiming it towards Johan Botha who ran a few steps back and pouched it gleefully. 16/2

    9.2 run out, Australia are struggling now, turned away towards short fine where the fielder rockets in a powerful throw at the non-strikers end, Micheal Hussey has already set off for the single but isn't quick enough, dives full length but a direct hit catches him well short of his ground 70/4
    9.6 he's thrown it away! Flighted on the off stump, lands on a good length, Haddin lofts it lazily, no intent whatsoever in that stroke, finds Albie Morkel at long-off positioned exactly for some poor batting like that 71/5
    15.6 identical stroke but not the result, struck it well but the ball was bowled much slower through the air, heaved it, but straight to deep midwicket where Duminy judges it to perfection 116/6

    18.6 bowled 'im! Good stuff from Parnell, in the blockhole on middle, Johnson tries to dig it out on the leg side but is a little too late in bringing his bat down, misses and the stumps are rattled 149/7

    8.6 bowled 'im! Full and straight on the off stump, Amla is a little late into that shot, tries to flick it away in front of square, misses and the off stump is pegged back. Big blow, he was looking dangerous there, and it's that man Hussey again who's done the damage 64/3
    3.1 wicket off the first ball in his maiden Twenty20 international! Loosener outside off stump, bowled at 117.3 kmph, Gibbs gets forward and drives it uppishly to Ponting, who makes no mistake at cover. A gift, that. 26/1
    5.1 Jeeves is having a ball here! Bowled on a good length on the off stump, keeps just a little low and zips through his defenses, tried to play that off the back foot but was nowhere near it, silence around the Wanderers 46/2

    11.3 big wicket! Just when it seemed Duminy was helping his team claw back, Hopes has uprooted his off stump. Short of a length and Duminy is tempted to go for a cross-batted pull over midwicket, the ball keeps a little low, he misses and the sticks behind him take a beating. 81/4
    12.1 South Africa are now in a crisis! Yorker bowled quick on the off stump, van Jaarsveld takes a couple of steps forward and tries to dig it out on the off side, misses and is bowled through the gate. 83/5

    17.1 Johnson has delivered the breakthrough! Slower ball bowled full on the off stump, Morkel is tempted to dismiss that into the stands once again, fails to connect well this time, lofts it really high and David Hussey takes a well-judged catch running in from long-off 141/6
