    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
