    0.3 lbw!! Bracken bowls a full ball, Gibbs tries to flick off the front foot but misses and gets hit on the pad. The impact was outside leg stump, Gibbs is unlucky 1/1
    2.5 bowled him! Kallis charges and makes room to hit down the ground, he misses and Hilfenhaus hits the top of off stump, that ball moved off the pitch a touch, Hilfenhaus does look a bit like Harmison, South Africa are in loads of trouble 12/3
    1.3 de Villiers is in pain! And he's out! Tait bowls a short of a length ball at 155.6 kmh, de Villiers tries to pull but is beaten by the pace of the ball, it crashes into his hip off the bottom edge and he winces in pain, he loses balance as he moves back and the bat hits the stumps, he's in a lot of pain and he hobbles back to the dug out, I hope he isn't badly injured 2/2
    15.2 lbw! Duminy' gone! He tried to reverse sweep a delivery angling into him from round the wicket, it was the quicker one from Hussey and Duminy missed it, the ball hit him on the pad right in front of the stumps, that's probably the end of South Africa's challenge tonight 123/7
    8.5 caught! Hopes bowls a length ball angled into the left-handers pads, van Jaarsveld hits the ball in the air towards midwicket but he's placed it straight to White who takes a comfortable catch at head height 65/4
    11.2 that is some catch! Boucher charges down the track and lofts David Hussey towards deep midwicket, his brother Michael is in the deep and he pedals backwards and never takes his eyes off the ball, the ball is virtually past him when he reaches up and holds it while moving backwards, superb catch 82/5
    14.5 caught! The lights are not in White's eyes this time! Morkel gets under a length ball and hits it hard, flat and straight to White at deep midwicket, he takes the catch comfortably 120/6
    not out
    15.5 Steyn's gone too! He tries to hit on the on side but the leading edge falls into Bracken's hands at short third man 125/8
    16.2 bowled him! Hilfenhaus sends down another yorker and gets it to swing into Ntini's boot, Ntini loses balance as the ball thuds into his shoe and goes on to hit the stumps 127/9
    17.6 bowled him! Tait sends down another yorker, this time the ball smacks Tsotsobe on the pads outside the line of leg stump and then bounces on to the stumps 130/10
