    0.2 and gone! again the one that swings away late, this one was fuller in length and closer to the off stump line and Gibbs had no option but to play at it. Thick edge and Styris at second slip makes no mistake. What a start for the Kiwis 0/1
    2.5 that's the end of that! fuller length delivery outside the off stump, angling away a wee bit and Smith plays a loose drive outside the off stump. Once again the edge is loud and clear and Taylor at first slip dives across to his left and takes a superb low catch. Mills is on a roll here 5/2
    21.5 Kallis goes! another short of a good length delivery outside the off stump, once again Kallis comes down the track, this time he attempts to cut over point and the ball finds Taylor at deep backward point. South Africa in deep trouble here. 66/5
    7.5 Gillespie redeems himself with a twister! good length delivery on the middle and off stump line, this one kept its line after hitting the deck leaving AB clueless, hardly any foot movement from the batsman and the ball zips past the outside edge and crashes into the woodwork. South Africa in a spot of bother here 20/3
    16.6 Duminy falls for the trap... flighted outside off, Duminy gets down and goes for the slog sweep. What he didn't realise was that he had a fielder at deep midwicket for that stroke. The elevation wasn't enough to clear the rope and Vincent took it easily 53/4
    43.2 Boucher comes down the track and Vettori pulls it back a bit. Boucher goes through with the shot anyway and ends up hitting it straight down the throat of Patel at long-on. That's a crucial bowl 155/6
    47.1 yorked! perfect yorker, bowled from wide of the crease and the ball shaped in a bit, Pollock plays all over it and the ball crashes into middle and leg. 176/8
    45.6 Gillespie has the fine say! good length delivery, bowled from round the stumps and this one went straight on. Morkel goes for the pull, but missed the target by miles. Once again the woodwork is disturbed and South Africa are seven down 167/7
    48.5 good length delivery on the pad and Botha clips it away in the air to deep midwicket, Vincent comes in quickly from the edge of the boundary, dives forward and takes a superb catch. 194/9

    1.4 RUN OUT! Vincent finally manages to run himself out. Good length delivery on the stumps, Vincent taps it down on the leg side and takes off for a single that was never there. McCullum rightly sends him back, Nel moves across quickly, the pick up is perfect and he hits the stumps direct. 9/1
    30.2 driven away to deep cover and they taken on Steyn in the deep by going for the second run. It's a nice little throw that comes in at the bowler's end and Both flicks the stumps quickly. McCullum gets the dive in but replays show that he was just short of his crease. The third umpire is woken up and the RED light flashes 163/2

    35.3 How falls! Good length delivery, and this one jagged back in sharply - How was committed to the drive and ball crashed into the pad - that was plumb and the dreaded finger went up straightaway 190/3
