    32.5 good diving catch! Marsh remains bogged down and doesn't use his feet much, looking to turn the ball to midwicket but closing the face too early and the leading edge is brilliantly taken by Gibbs, sliding in from extra cover and grasping it mere inches off the turf 166/3
    4.1 lovely delivery, pitching short of a length in line with the stumps and nipping off the upright seam, cramping and squaring up Warner, with no foot movement, and the half-hearted shot towards the on side draws a faint edge through to Boucher, and thus Warner fails on his ODI debut 17/1
    29.2 finally someone holds on, and its de Villiers who sashays across to his left to pouch the offering at deep backward square leg! Ponting swivels on an ambitious pull shot but gets underneath it and sends the ball down de Villiers' throat, the end of a charmed innings from Ponting 152/2
    39.1 in the air and taken by a diving backward point! Kallis gets another, rolling the fingers across a cutter which Michael scoops in the air to Gibbs, sliding and taking it to his right 190/4
    44.5 and he's gone, looking to get innovative! David Hussey backs away only to scoop a full and wide delivery off the toe end of the bat straight to Morkel at backward point 218/6
    40.3 White falls to a soft dismissal, just chipping straight to Botha at midwicket 197/5
    49.5 now thats something I haven't seen for a while! Ntini pitches full and straight, Haddin swings a straight drive back onto the stumps, the ball ricochets away and Harris set offs, Haddin has no chance and Ntini runs back and gleefully uproots a stump 249/8
    47.1 starts off with the sucker ball, full and wide and another scoop to backward point, where Morkel takes a good tumbling catch to his right, cupping it in front and then throwing it away as he hurts a finger 232/7
    49.6 and a wicket off the last ball, as Harris gets under the ball and scoops it off the toe end of the bat, up and over the infield and it settles in Duminy's palms at deep mid-off 249/9

    14.4 pulled out to the deep! Gibbs decides to take on a short cutter from Hopes, but takes the ball on the splice and picks out the man kept back precisely for this type of shot 52/2
    6.3 edged and taken at first slip! Amla flashes a tame drive at one pitched up and he gets a thick outside edge over the top of White's head, the extra bit of bounce undid him 15/1
    34.5 gone, and the man to get! Kallis chases a wide delivery and picks out David Hussey at backward point, who doesn't have to do much to pouch the aerial cut 145/3
    36.1 AB trips and he's gone! Hilfenhaus pitches on the stumps, AB shuffles and taps the ball just wide of midwicket and harries off down the track, he gets the first in good time but stumbles as he turns back for the second, still he continues sprinting and dives full stretch but a good flat throw from Harris comes back to Haddin in time, that was a terrific throw and well taken too 157/4
    46.5 so well bowled, and the frustration results in a run out! Bracken fires in yet another mesmeric yorker, which Duminy fails to pick, he sets out of his crease and pays the price as Haddin knocks down the stumps with an accurate throw 205/6
    41.1 first international wicket for Harris! A nothing shot from McKenzie, trying to run one down to third man from too close to the body he succeeds in chopping onto his stumps 172/5
