    6.6 and Zaheer underlines the fact that Smith is his bunny. Full ball angling into the left-hander, Smith moves a shade across and gets hit on the back pad plumb in front, that's four out of four for Zaheer against Smith 34/3
    2.6 Bosman goes, tame edge to Tendulkar at first slip, Zaheer kept it full outside off, taking the ball away from the right hander, Bosman drove at it and only managed to get the edge 19/1
    5.1 he strikes first ball, perhaps a trifle lucky because it was very wide and was moving wider away from Gibbs who plonked his front foot down and bashed it straight at Raina at cover 31/2
    11.5 gone! Sends this one down straight on the stumps, no real movement and Kemp is caught on the pad in front of middle and leg, Tendulkar appeals and umpire Jerling agrees! 64/5
    7.6 got him, Agarkar has two in two overs. He serves that full and swinging away from the right-hander, de Villiers drives ahrd at it, gets the edge and Dhoni takes a low catch 41/4
    15.4 got 'em! Fullish outside off stump, Morkel launches into the lofted drive down the ground, didnt lean into it enough though, and can only find the eager fielder down at long-off 101/6
    18.6 gone! Tossed up outside off stump, and its slogged down Raina's throat at long-on, Harbhajan gets him! Thats two in two for India... 120/8
    18.5 madness! Flat outside off stump, and he slogs the free hit down to the man at long-on, who takes the catch, but Peterson's lost his marbles, and begins to walk away, thinking he was out, and the throw that comes back to Harbhajan is whipped off with the bails, and Peterson has to go...oh ho! 120/7
    19.4 tossed up on off stump, worked to backward point where the throw comes in a flash, Dhoni whips off the stumps and he's gone! 123/9

    9.3 disaster for India! Sehwag is run-out. Mongia drives it to mid-off and sets off for the run, Sehwag takes off from the non-striker's end, Mongia changes his mind and turns back, Sehwag is left stranded more than half-way down, the throw from mid-off is a poor one but Langeveldt collects it and dives full length to break the stumps, memories of Jonty Rhodes from the 1992 World Cup come to mind 60/2
    3.5 Langeveldt gets his man, Tendulkar tried to smash one from outside off, he tried to hit it too hard and chopped it on to his stumps, the crowds explode in celebration 17/1
    17.3 now he's gone! Tossed up on middle and off, Mongia steps out and tries to clear the infield but mistimes the lofted chip and Langeveldt, covering good ground at mid-on, tumbles and holds a great catch 108/4
    11.1 Langeveldt! A quick, good length ball outside off stump, Dhoni stands there and tries some sort of late cut/dab and succeeds in chopping onto his off stump...no fireworks from him, South Africa on top! 71/3
