    15.2 gone! Wat a catch! Shortish and wide and takes a swing at it, cuts it backward of point, McKenzie takes a dive to his right and grabs with one hand. Excellent catch there . 47/3
    3.5 short and just outside off, gets the edge straight to Smith at first slip and he makes no mistake. That will be lunch. Please join us again after lunch for the rest of the day's play. 8/1
    12.2 and finally the intimidation pays off, another short and straight one, bouncy, hits the gloves and flies away to point, easy catch. 37/2
    19.2 and another one. That was an excellent direct hit from Steyn down at long-leg, right from the fence hits the stumps directly. The Bangladeshi captain is found short of his ground by about 3 inches. 68/5
    17.2 oh no, completely unneccesary,turns for a second run, takes on the arm of Amla and finds himself sort of his ground. Direct hit down at the bowler's end. 57/4
    34 another stupid run by the Bangladeshi's, goes for the idiotic single and Prince makes no mistake. 126/7
    21.5 quite a shocking delivery gets a wicket, short and very wide, takes a slash at it and goes out to the deep backward point fence where Ntini takes a good catch diving forward. 77/6
    29.1 what a ball! Just leaves the ball outside off and Ntini swings the ball enough to uproot off-stump. What a sight for a fast-bowler. 95/7
    not out
    34.4 short and straight, just guides it to third slip actually. De Villiers makes no mistake. 127/9
    36.4 and the fine little edge carrying through to Boucher ends it all. Game, set,match and series for that mater. 131/10
