    10.3 lbw! Harbhajan tosses the ball up on off stump, Smith leans forward in defence but plays down the wrong line, it was the straighter one from Harbhajan, not the offbreak, and it hit Smith in line with off stump, Asad Rauf thinks it was going on to hit the stumps and India have their first wicket 53/1
    56.6 caught! Kumble tosses the ball up on off stump, Amla pushes forward tentatively in defence, the ball bounces out of the rough and hits the outside edge, the ball lobs up for Dravid who takes a simple catch at first slip 210/2
    76.2 caught! That's a super catch! Kallis gets down on one knee and sweeps powerfully towards square leg, he's hit the ball in the air and RP dives to his left at square leg to take a sharp catch with both hands 264/3
    78.6 caught! Prince lunges forward to defend, it might have been the straighter one from Harbhajan, the ball bounces and hits the glove, goes on to hit the top of the front pad and bobs up to Jaffer at short leg 272/4
    94.3 caught! de Villiers leans forward to defend and the ball lobs up to Ganguly at short leg for a simple catch, Sehwag is thrilled with the breakthrough but de Villiers looks disappointed, there was no bat there, straight of the pad by the looks of it 306/5
