    2.3 terrific bowling from Pollock - that is absolutely plumb. Cutting back into Bray once more, and Bray is rather trapped on the crease - trying to come forward, but without much conviction - and that's taking out middle 0/1
    12.3 on off stump but too short to be driving on the front foot, and he spoons it just over Kallis's head at extra cover...who takes a couple of steps backwards and a fine catch, tumbling to the ground as he does so 31/2
    19.5 what a vicious delivery, spitting up at him. He had nowhere to go, the ball skying to square leg who took a simple catch. Excellent change of pace there, but the wicket owed as much to the pitch's vagaries 63/3
    22.5 clever bowling in response, O'Brien through his shot too soon to that slower ball and the ball catches the back of the bat and flies up and into the hands of Gibbs at short midwicket. Catches don't come much simpler and South Africa are gaining momentum, and control, here 77/4
    28.6 goes he softly into the light, hitting that full toss up to midwicket 116/5
    30.1 that's full and tempting, Botha's tempted and flights that up to cover for a simple catch 119/6

    31.3 another easy catch; a short-pitched delivery and the batsman jumps up to cut that off the back foot, getting a top edge through to Boucher the poucher 124/7
    31.4 short and strangled down leg-side for a golden duck. Langeveldt's grinning, as you would when you're on a hat-trick 124/8
