    46.5 this could be the end for South Africa, Smith's heroic innings comes to an end, Smith backed away and looked to smash that to midwicket, top edges it to mid-on, the crowd gives Smith a standing ovation 274/9
    6.6 Gibbs holes out to mid-on, gets on the backfoot to pull that ball, bottom hand comes off the bat as he plays that, no power behind the shot and it lobs to mid-on 42/1
    11.5 Denly takes the catch to dismiss Kallis, who perishes to a similar shot as Denly himself, swung around to deep square leg, Kallis needed better placement, that's a big blow 64/2
    25.5 de Villiers picks out Denly at midwicket, a length delivery, de Villiers hoicks it off the back foot, not enough power to clear the short boundary, and the waiting Denly holds on to a simple catch 142/3
