    7.2 edged and gone! Ntini persists with his outside-the-off-stump line, Fulton reaches for it and drives loosely, and the regulation thick edge is snapped up well by Hall at second clip to give South Africa the breakthrough 25/1
    30.1 and he takes one ball to strike! Its just outside off stump, Fleming stands there and thinks its good enough to cut, but ends up getting a fine edge into Boucher's gloves, a great take! 120/3
    12.2 gone! Nel steams in, fires one in one a good length outside off stump, the ball jags in sharply, catching Taylor on the crease, and without any hesitation umpire Benson flashes up the finger...but oh ho, replays show the ball was going well over the stumps... 42/2
    43.4 gone this time! Styris looks to end this affair in an array of big hits, dances out of his crease, gets under it and ends up hitting it too hard, and Gibbs, with the sun in his eyes, judges it well moving back from mid-off and takes it 176/4

    48.1 cleaned em up! It was full, no room to hit, and Oram swings across the line only to hear the death rattle behind him! What a celebration from Nel as he savours the sight of splayed stumps in front of him! 192/5
