    13.1 slower ball after a delay with a stuck sightscreen, Smith drives firmly at the width, gets the edge and Taylor this time gets two hands to a low catch at a wide slip 69/2
    8.5 gets well forward on the off, pushes at one leaving him, edges, Taibu does well to take that standing up before appealing and then setting off on a celebration run to square leg, Bodi almost with a gulity look in the eyes, sees the finger of fate go up 52/1
    40.6 full outside off, goes after that on the drive but gets an inside edge and very well taken by an excited Taibu 255/3
    45.3 full on the legs, slower ball does it as de Villiers mistimes down the ground for long on to take a comfortable catch, what an innings 289/6
    42.1 gets one just on the off, short of length, looks to run that to third man, opens the face too much as he plays from the crease, gets the edge and another catch by Taibu standing up 265/4
    44.2 Outside off, short, cuts that well forward of the sweeper, they decide on a second but the return from Maruma is perfect and TV has him well short 280/5
    46.5 short but on line, van der Wath pulls from the front foot, does not complete the shot, sends it high and forward of the deep midwicket who takes a comfortable catch 294/7
    47.3 WHAT A CATCH, slower ball outside the off, too short, crashes the cut wide of point who takes off, outstretched arm and that is a great catch from the 12th man Dabengwa 297/8

    13.3 Morkel has the last laugh, one just outside off, goes on the drive again, foot not there this time, nice bounce takes the outside edge to de Villiers 76/1
    19.3 outside off, that goes away with the arm, gets forward put then pushes at it, gets the edge to de Villiers 101/2
    36.4 flatter ball maybe arm ball at the legs, goes to clear midwicket but Dumniy jumping to his left gets two hands to it and holds on to a good catch 210/3

    39.4 Bodi moved to well forward of square leg, trap set, and he falls for it, touch short on the legs, goes after it, gets it high on the bat with Bodi hardly having to move as he takes it comfortably 231/4
    41.1 outside off angled across, huge swing, near miss, off the toe of the bat towards mid-off, Williams sets off, Smith gathers, underarms into the stumps, well short and for once TV replay is not required 236/5
    45.4 fired into the leg stump, makes room and lofts that to the on side, does not make clean contact and sends it straight to van der Wath at long on 271/6
    46.1 what ever fast bowler wants to see, the top of the off stump being hit and sent spinning, angled in just on legth, Brent gets forwatd but the ball is through him before any defence got in the way 273/7
