    3.1 swinging back into Ramdin who is again beaten by the movement off the pace. They try to steal a single but Ntini is so quick and flies past Smith, picking the ball up and flinging it onto the stumps. Superb work from Ntini 20/1
    7.5 gone! Excellent ball, again drawing Ramdin into a drive but it moves off the seam and flies straight to the lone slip 41/3
    5.2 gone! Samuels steps to leg and tries to slap this over cover, but gets a thick outside edge. It flies to Boucher who takes a good catch above his head 30/2
    13.5 excellent bowling. A good slower ball, foxing Chanderpaul in the flight who tried to punch it over cover, but the ball ballooned meekly to Botha at point 72/5

    12.1 well that's an unfortunate way to go. Morton tried to sweep, the ball coming off his glove or arm and bobbled back onto the stumps 58/4
    17.4 easy catch for long-on as Bravo mistimes this, attempting to loft it over the top but finds the fielder 101/7
    14.4 awful shot. Full and straight, he tries to clobber this over long-on but skies it straight down mid-on's throat 79/6

    0.3 eat that! What a ball from Taylor, angling into his legs but swinging away at the last moment and it crashes into his stumps. An absolute corker 0/1
    2.2 and another one for Taylor! Horrid, ugly stroke from Smith who tried to work it through the leg side but got a thick inside edge onto his stumps 17/2
    7.3 gone! A fine, alert catch from Ramdin, standing up to the stumps, as de Villiers tries to run this slower ball past his gloves...but instead, he edged it straight to him 51/4
    5.6 goddim! A loose stroke, slipping it straight to square leg. He just didn't get on top of it 38/3
    11.3 good catch, Bravo! Fine catch at a wideish mid-on, diving forward as Ontong tries to whip this through the leg side but can't time it 66/5
    13.5 Lewis has plucked a blinder! Boucher pulled this full toss but was never in control of the stroke, skying it, and Lewis sprinted around the boundary, dived with an outstretched right hand and plucked it safely. A really fine catch 77/6
