    10.3 Peterson gives himself way too much room and exposes the stumps too much for his liking, Hopes fires it on the blockhole and the ball cannons onto the stumps, the bails are splattered 71/3

    2.5 timber! And Bracken has his revenge! He cleverly bowls the slower ball and Gibbs fails to read it as he swings early and misses, the ball clips the top of the off stump and he's got to go 22/1
    3.6 doesn't take too long for Laughlin to strike, not really a wicket-taking ball, it was full and wide and waiting to be hit but de Villiers gets forward and ends up slamming it straight to White at short cover 24/2

    14.6 lucky strike for Harwood! He bowls a full toss on the stumps and Duminy moves across his stumps to paddle it away but misses and his leg stump is flattened 96/4
    17.3 he goes for 48, Harwood drops it short and van der Merwe makes room to slice it through the off side, the short length foxes him and he has no room to work with and as a result he gets a faint edge to Haddin 133/5

    4.5 Morkel gets the breakthrough South Africa needed so badly, Warner is bowled by a full delivery on middle and off, Warner comes down the track and tries to loft it down the ground, misses the ball and his stumps are shattered 37/1
    5.2 Ponting's gone this time, caught behind pushing at a length ball, he was ill at ease in his first two deliveries as well, and this one comes in a fraction after pitching outside off, Ponting took a big stride forward to drive, feathered it through to the keeper 38/2
    14.4 another mishit from Hussey, this pone doesn't go long enough, the inside out shot ends up in the hands of Gibbs at long-off 101/5
    10.2 he's run-out off the first ball, Ferguson shuffled across the stumps to tickle it to fine leg, van der Merwe was quickly onto the ball, he threw the ball to the non-striker's end where Botha breaks the stumps before Ferguson can make his ground, great fielding from South Africa 63/4
    15.6 length ball, pitching on leg, White tried to launch that one over long-on, doesn't hit it well enough, finds the safe hands of JP Duminy at the boundary 106/6

    19.2 Hopes is gone, deceived by the slower one, good thinking from Louw, Hopes was coming down the track, he sent in a shorter, slower one, which Hopes mishits to midwicket, Albie takes a diving catch to send Hopes on his way 131/7
    19.5 Louw gets another wicket, Bracken's gone, the batsman was backing away to flatbat it down the ground, he gets a top edge to the short ball which balloons to AB de Villiers at mid-off 138/8
