    4.4 gone this time! Another beauty from Steyn who draws him into an injudicious forward poke, the ball taking the outside edge and it loops to Smith at first slip who makes no mistake 10/1
    11.4 what a catch! That's a quite remarkable catch from Gibbs. Parchment drives, it takes a thick outside edge and flies to Gibbs' right at gully who dives, spectacularly, and plucks it one-handed above his head and to his right. Quite brilliant 22/3
    9.1 got him! A raucous appeal from Pollock who raps Morton on the pad. Morton was cautiously forward on the front foot, the ball cutting back onto him and it looked like it was going down leg...but Dar raised his finger 11/2
    12.2 gone! He's goddim! Fuller this time and Samuels plays this away from his body, the ball seaming just a touch away from him, and it hands Boucher with the simplest of chances 26/4
    14.1 gone! West Indies are toast here. Poor shot from Chanderpaul to a decent delivery which angles across him, he nibbles at it and hands a simple catch to second slip 33/5
    17.6 good catch again from Gibbs. A nasty, vicious ball from Pollock which bounces off a good length and he fends this off to Gibbs' right who keeps low, moving quickly to his right, diving, and taking his second fine catch of the morning 57/6
    21.4 pushes forward and the ball takes a thick outside edge; Gibbs takes another fine catch at gully, taking it low off his bootstraps to his right 74/7
    34.1 ... and Smith persists with good reason! In the slot from Nel, and a very loose drive from Sammy, who's played so well so far. Smith himself takes an awkward catch, climbing towards his chest at first slip, and the end of the innings is nigh 139/9
    29.4 incredible catch at deep backward square! A short ball from Pollock and Taylor never got over it, but Steyn had to make good ground and scooped the ball off the turf with a full-length sprawling dive. Very nicely done indeed, and Pollock has four on his comeback 116/8

    52.4 well, well the collapse is on. Maybe not, but West Indies have another as Taylor pitches up outside off stump and brings a thick edge from Smith, Ramdin dives across in front of first slip to pouch a safe catch and both overnight batsman are now gone 252/3

    8.4 a stunned silence greets the first wicket of the innings. Short, but not that short, and Gibbs under-edges a smeared pull onto his leg stump. He looks up in incredulity, but it's too late to save his innings 53/1
    51.4 out of nowhere a wicket, on the stumps and Amla closes the face of the bat as he tries to turn into the leg side. The edge flies to silly mid-off where Dwayne Bravo holds a sharp catch to end a stand of 199 252/2
    81.4 the sucker punch, wide, Kallis looks to cut/slash that behind square but gets a top edge and Morton holds a sharp chance, albeit at an ideal height. Utter silnce other than whooping from the fielding side 374/4

    19.1 outside off, a firm but unnecessary push off the back foot, and Jacques Kallis at second slip plucks the simplest of chances. Another one goes, and now it's trouble for West Indies 49/2
    14.6 got him, and I'm afraid that was inevitable. The outswingers set him up, this one pitched just outside, nipped back, and would have taken out middle and leg. West Indies have lost their first wicket of the innings 33/1
    25.2 done him like a kipper, and that's justice! Morton shoulders arms to a straight delivery that zips back into him, and strikes him on the back leg in front of middle. That would have taken the bails, and Pollock has his first of the innings 88/3

    82.3 bowled him! What a beauty from Steyn, an absolute corker though his celebration is completely unnecessary. It angled into Samuels before straightening; Samuels tried to turn it to leg but it clipped the off stump. Unplayable 292/6
    65.6 oh dear, that's what breaks can do to the concentration. That was angled towards leg stump, but not as far off target as Bravo thought. Played right across the line, and that's a fair decision 232/4
    76.3 short and wide, and there's the breakthrough! There was no need to play at that, and he didn't really play at all - just wafted it through with his feet stuck in the crease. 273/5
    84.4 got him! Angling into his pads but straightening on him at the last moment, and Sammy tried to turn it to leg but gets a leading edge which flies straight back to the bowler 305/7

    84.6 gone! Another brilliant delivery from Steyn, Powell trying to play to leg but beaten for pace. It was straight, and very fast, and much too good for him 305/8
    86.5 bowled him and South Africa have beaten the West Indies by an innings. A brilliant ball to a tailender - too fast, too straight 317/10
