    0.3 end of the beginning! Jaffer's ODI debut lasts just three balls. Short of a good length delivery, close to the off stump line and shaping in a touch, Jaffer goes at it with no real footwork, a nothing shot in the end - ball clips the inside edge and crashes into the stumps. 0/1
    16.2 and Nel plucks Tendulkar! good length delivery, this one too nipped back in, Tendulkar goes for the drive, ball clips the inside edge and crashes into the woodwork. Another massive wicket and the bells are ringing. 62/4
    8.6 131.3 kmp Pollock strikes again - good length delivery outside the off stump, Kaif drive off the back-foot, ball kicks up just the extra bit - clips the shoulder of the bat and goes high towards point - Gibbs there times his jump to perfection and takes it high over his head. India two down 39/2
    15.6 what a delivery - good length and this one nipped back in sharply after hitting the deck, Dravid pushes forward and the ball sneaks through the big gap between bat and pad. That's a bit wicket - India in deep trouble here 62/3
    22.6 Nel hammers in another nail - slightly short and cutting in sharply, Dhoni was all set to leave it through to the keeper but the ball kept coming in with the angle, and in the end the ball brushed the glove and went straight to the keeper 83/6
    22.1 short of a good length delivery, pitched close to the off stump line and angling across - fairly harmless delivery, Raina has a harmless poke at it and the ball goes straight to Kallis at second slip, no harm done. 82/5
    23.6 fuller length delivery, pitched wide outside the off stump and angling across the left-hander. Mongia drives at it away from his body with no real footwork and the edge finds Kemp at second slip - seven down three more to go 83/7
    25.2 gone! Lands around off stump and moves in to strike him on the front leg in front of about leg and middle, a loud appeal is upheld and India have slipped further 84/8
    29.1 all over! Fast on a good length outside off stump, pitches and cuts in sharply off the surface, Agarkar stands and drives loosely but plays all over it and loses his off stump, Kallis gets his third and South Africa have won by 157 runs and take a 1-0 lead in the series 91/10
    26.4 bye! Bangs one in a short outside off stump, and all Zaheer can do is some how duck into it, takes the eyes of it and ends up gloving it through to Boucher, Nel is cock-a-hoop and why not, South Africa are one wicket away from victory 85/9
