    3.2 edged and gone! Ntini perseveres with the fuller delivery and gets Hafeez stuck neither here not there, just getting half-cock forward with minimal foot movement and feeling for the ball outside off stump, and the result is an outside edge into Smith's lap at first slip 27/1
    6.1 what a catch! Pollock drops this one in short outside off stump, Akmal gets into position and pulls well, but Prince times his jump at square leg brilliantly and grabs it out of the air 37/2
    11.1 reflex catch! Its full and moving in, and Younis stands and drives back in the air to Ntini, who dives to his left and holds a neat chance that was coming at him fast 70/4
    9.1 no hundred here, as Afridi gets under a short-pitched delivery and slogs it high in the air, the steepling top-edge goes up and comes down near third man, where three men converge but its Andre Nel who holds his nerves and takes an excellent, well-judged diving catch to send Afridi back 56/3
    16.5 this time he's gone! Yousuf charges down the track, looking to smack it over the ring, but he doesnt get to the pitch and ends up hitting across the line with one hand and finding Smith standing just inside the circle 119/5
    17.2 Inzamam perishes to the hook, oh boy! Kallis decides to tempt him with the short-pitched delivery, theres a man positioned out in the deep for this, yet still Inzamam obliges by pulling it down the throat of Andrew Hall, diving and pulling off a stunning catch at deep square leg 119/6

    19.4 as easy as they come! Kallis drops one in short and Razzaq just stands and wafts at it, the ball stands up a little more than he probably thought, and the ball just balloons up in the air for square leg to stand his ground and hold a dolly 125/7
    19.6 edged and gone! This one's fuller and much straighter, Rana sort of comes forward and pokes at it with an angled bat, and Boucher takes the regulation edge 125/8
    39.5 gone! Tossed up again, Sami plants the front leg forward and takes his eyes off the ball, slogging it up around the corner in an attempt to sweep, Boucher moves to his left and takes the catch 198/9
    46.4 all over, thankfully! Tossed up outside off stump, Asif slogs at it and gets a top-edge, Prince at slip back-peddles and takes the catch, and South Africa win by 164 runs! 228/10
