    7.5 short of a good length delivery, Gilchrist goes for his favourite pull but the ball moves in a touch and that cramps him but it's too late to adjust and the top edge balloons up towards mid-on, Nel nicely settles under it 25/3

    4.1 well bowled off cutter, Martyn plays down the wrong line and is trapped plumb in front, Pollock too joins the party 5/2
    31.2 Pollock strikes!! slower delivery from Pollock, just a bit on offer, Clarke falls prey to it, drives in the air, but cant find the gap, drives to the left of AB De Villiers who's fielding at cover, he dives to his left and pulls off a fantastic catch! 125/4
    33.4 gone!! that was a rank bad shot. Pollock bowls one just a little short, and a little too straight, Hussey pulls it away off the backfoot, cant keep it down, and finds Boeta Dippenaar at the midwicket fence - that's two wickets in two overs for Pollock - justifies Graeme Smith's move of bringing him on 132/5

    46.4 RUN OUT! wide delivery outside the off stump and the ball goes through to the keeper, Bracken takes off for the run but this time Lee stands his ground, with both the batsmen at the same end the ball is throw to Ntini, who strolls across and clips the bails at the bowler's end 227/8

    5.5 good length delivery on the middle and off stump line, Dippenaar defends on the back-foot with a straight bat, ball keeps low, clips the toe end of the bat and crashes into the off stump - Bracken with the breakthrough! 24/1
    6.5 Clarke! fuller on the pads and that's flicked straight to Clarke at midwicket, that ball was travelling, Clarke takes it cleanly and hits the stumps at the bowler's end, Gibbs is caught napping! 28/2
    17.1 short and wide outside the off stump, de Villiers cuts off the back-foot and ends up with a faint edge, Boucher holds on well to a fairly hard chance - de Villiers was looking good and that's a big wicket 111/3
    22.6 turned away behind square leg where Katich mis-fields, big mix-up going for the second, captain and the keeper end up on the same side of the wicket - throws comes in to the bowler's end and Lee flicks the bails 134/4
