    22.5 smart work from Boucher, who collects the ball as it pitches and straightens to beat Marsh's attempted sweep to one outside off stump, Marsh drags his back leg just over the line and in a flash Boucher breaks the stumps, so Botha gets some success in his opening over 144/2

    18.5 you miss, I hit, mate! Full, fast and straight on the stumps, Warner swings across the stumps and cannot connect and Steyn flattens his leg stump, terminating a fun innings 114/1
    28.3 what a simple dismissal, its gently tossed up and Ponting just plays across his pads to short midwicket, who stumbles a couple feet forward and accepts the offering, easy as can be 172/4
    26.5 well done, de Villiers! Botha tosses it up wider, drawing a flashy drive off the edge to backward point, where de Villiers runs across, collects, and returns a flat throw on top of the stumps to Boucher, Hussey has set off and turns back and dives but he is nowhere in the frame, that was really brilliant fielding 165/3
    45.1 hah, he's missed a rank waist high full toss! Ntini slips it out and Hussey just does not pick it as he opens the face to steer it fine, makes no contact and back goes middle stump 239/6
    32.3 Haddin's gone, and Botha has a third! Tossed up, lures Haddin out of his crease, he drives it low and flat back to Botha, who holds it very well and then throws it up 188/5
    48.5 oh well taken, Botha! Ntini gets another by pitching full down leg stump, getting the ball to swing in with the angle, Hopes chips it off the pads low in the air towards Botha, staying back on the circle, who then runs across and dives to hold a very sharp catch 267/9
    46.4 dragged on! Johnson dances down, making room, and swings and misses and gets a faint under edge that cannons back into the base of the stumps 253/7
    47.4 pitches it up, Hauritz makes room and tries to drive inside-out but finds Botha, stationed at cover, running backward to take a neat catch over his head 262/8

    49.2 whats happening here? Tait hops away toward square leg and drops the short delivery to the off side, Bracken sets off but there is no reaction from Tait, who is ball watching, suddenly both men are at one end and Tait had no chance to get back as the throw comes back to Botha on the bounce, who dislodges the stumps 269/10

    5.2 Suicide! run-ut, Gibbs is beaten by the extra bounce, and sees Amla charging down even before he has recovered, takes one step down but realises there is no single in this as Warner is charging at it from cover. it's an easy chip from Warner and Amla is gone 29/1
    18.6 finally Australia hold one, its just catching practice from Gibbs, not moving as he reaches out and plays it off the face of the bat smack to first slip, who cups it in front of his face 125/2
    28.2 Tait strikes! Kallis throws it away with a poor back-foot shot, chasing a length ball from his crease and all he can succeed in doing is feather a thin edge to an ecstatic Haddin 163/5
    21.4 edged and Hussey takes another easy catch in front of his face! Bracken pitches full and angles it away to tempt the drive, AB chases it and gives a regulation edge to first slip 140/3
    27.6 bowled em! This one is tossed up outside off and purchases a bit of turn from the rough, cramping Duminy as he goes for a cut, stays low and a faint inside edge disturb off stump and thats an ODI wicket for Hauritz for the first time since May 2003 163/4
    39.5 lovely arm from that man Warner! Boucher skips out, collects on the full and flicks through midwicket, a well-struck shot that but then out of the blue comes Warner, huffing and puffing and collecting and throwing it back to Hauritz, who breaks the sticks with McKenzie, having been waved back, just short of the crease 209/6

    45.6 one hit too many, trying to finish it off with a six, but he doesn't get the desired power on the slog and the ball is taken down at wide long-on by Hopes, running around and sliding onto his knees to complete a good catch 265/7
