    21.1 short and wide outside the off stump and Gilchrist belts it straight to de Villers at cover, Kallis strikes first ball! 99/2
    17.5 finally the breakthrough! short ball and Katich pulls it away towards deep midwicket, got the height but not the distance, Kallis runs in from the deep, dives foward and takes it inces away from the ground, fantastic effort! 87/1
    22.4 short of a good length delivery, bit wide outside the off stump, Ponting plays a shot filled with nothingness and the edge goes straight to Bouncher behind the stumps, Telemachus on a roll here! South Africa right back in this game now 101/4
    22.2 this is getting interesting! Telemachus comes up with a beauty, bit of drift in and shaping away from the batsman after hitting the deck, Martyn defends on the back-foot, ball clips the edge and goes behind, Boucher dives across to his right and takes a good low catch, Australia three down 100/3
    42.6 Telemachus does it again! good length delivery on the middle and leg stump line, Symonds makes room looking to drives inside out but get nowhere with the shot and the ball crashes into the woodwork - horrible shot to say the least and that's a massive wicket for South Africa. 218/7
    31.3 Gone! short ball outside the off stump, Clarke pulls it on the front foot, only manages to top edged it, ball lobs up behind the stumps, Boucher nicely settles under it 140/5
    39.5 game on! driven straight to Hall at mid-off, Hussey is out of his crease and Hall scores a direct hit at the bowler's end, they go upstairs and the RED light flashes, that's a crucial wicket 192/6
    43.1 Lee too joins the procession! short of a good length delivery, coming in with the angle, Lee defends on the back-foot and is beaten by the extra bounce, edge goes straight to Bouncer behind the stumps and he doesn't drop many! 218/8
