    0.2 bowled 'em! A tad fuller this time, 133.2ks on a sweet spot, swings in and beats Smith's tame forward drive, ball sneaks through bat and pad and crashes into off stump, big wicket, well bowled Zaheer Khan! 0/1
    10.4 GONE! Full outside off stump, an impetuous Bosman has a full-blooded drive at that, kitchen sink and all, as they say, and can only get a thick edge to Tendulkar at first slip, who jumps up and pouches a good catch moving to his left, Zaheer gets another 38/3
    0.4 GONE! Whoah Nelly! Full, fast and moving away from him, 130.4ks Kallis reaches a long way for it, has a big swish at that and can only nick it through to Tendulkar at first slip! Huge wicket, Zak's back! 0/2
    11.6 gone! A rank half-volley outside off stump, begging to be hit, Gibbs gets onto bended knee and can only smack that in the air to Kaif at short extra cover, he takes a simple catch and Gibbs has to go, a tame dismissal 42/4
    19.2 but Agarkar wins this battle! Shortish outside off stump and de Villiers decides to have a tickle at it and gets a thick edge through to Dhoni, moving to his left, India on a roll! 76/6
    18.5 poor running, and thats out! Tossed up, de Villiers gets to the pitch of it and drives in the gap at cover, calls for the second but Boucher is struggling, Pathan covers good ground, swoops in and fires the throw high over Kumble, who jumps, catches it and drops it down onto the stumps and Boucher is out, ever so marginally 71/5

    0.4 and gone! short and wide outside the off stump. Sehwag goes for the cut and the ball flies off the top edge, done in by the extra bounce there - Andrew Hall sprints across in the deep and takes a fine tumbling catch - Pollock strikes in the very first over, Sehwag walks back for a duck. 0/1
    4.4 Pollock strikes again! short delivery and Tendulkar pulls it straight to Bowman at square leg. The ball was there to be hit but he miserably failed to keep it down. 7/2
    40.1 banged in short outside off stump, Dravid goes for a hook but doesnt time it and gets a leading edge that balloons up and down to a diving Hall at deep backward square leg, who dives forward and plucks that inches before the ground, South Africa have been excellent with their catching today and Dravid's gritty innings comes to an end 168/9

    8.5 and Pollock gets his revenge. Excellent off-cutter, Kaif goes for the pull, ball clips the inside edge and crashes into the woodwork 17/3
    16.2 four down! short of a good length, bit off extra bounce and zing - Karthik leaves his bat hanging in the air to dry and the edge goes straight to Smith at second slip. 44/4
    44.1 bowled from round the wicket - punched off the back-foot to the point region 198/7
    44.4 200 comes up! another short ball - again bowled from round the stump, Kemp just swings across the line and gets it on the middle. Long-on fielder had no chance of cutting it off 203/7
    35.6 gone! Fullish, slower ball outside off stump, and all he can do is roll the wrists and scoop that up in the air towards mid-on where Smith dives to his left and plucks that with his left hand as the ball died on him, end of the road for Harbhajan 148/7
    37.5 Full ball on middle and leg. Agarkar loses a bit of balance, falls over and scoops it in the direction of midwicket where Smith times his jump to perfection, stretches his right hand and pulls off another beauty. They're catching them like champions now. The end seems very near 156/8

    41.3 all over at Newlands! Full-pitched delivery outside off stump, Kumble goes down on one knee and drives, gets an inside edge onto off stump and Hall celebrates with a pumped fist, a spin on the heels, and a happy walk back to the dressing room 168/10
