    5.1 not Kervezee for sure, Kallis strikes first ball, was on a length on middle and off and Kervezee just went through with an attempted straight drive, striking it straight back to Kallis who clasped it on the second attempt 26/1
    22.4 there's an appeal for a stumping and van Wyk is confident. Duminy, from round the wicket, slanted the ball across Barresi who pushed forward in defence. The ball sped past his outside edge and van Wyk whipped off the bails in a flash. Replays show that Barresi had dragged his foot out and only managed to get it back on the line before the bails were broken. On the line is not good enough, he has to go. 83/4
    11.5 Steyn proves he's a better catcher than Morkel, thatr was judged very well, short ball from Kallis and Cooper went for the pull, bounced higher than he expected, got a top edge and Steyn running a few yards to his right from fine leg took it in front of his face and retained his balance 46/2
    21.3 lbw! Zuiderent lunged forward to defend, the ball came in with the arm from over the wicket and hit him low on the pad on the front foot. The impact was more than 2.5 meters from the stumps but Asoka de Silva said out and Zuiderent did not review it. That would have hit the stumps, in my opinion 81/3
    27.5 massive appeal for lbw from Steyn, and after an age Asoka raises the finger to send ten Doeschate on his way. Steyn pitched the ball outside off and cut it into the right-hander. ten Doeschate was beaten for pace and was late in bringing his bat down. The ball thudded into the pad first and that's plumb 100/5
    32.1 a direct hit at the non-striker's end and de Grooth is run out. He nudged the ball off his pads towards the leg side and the fielder at square leg swooped on the ball and unleashed a deadly accurate throw. de Grooth was just short. Smith was the fielder I think. 109/7
    31.4 there's another appeal for lbw which leaves Asoka unmoved and Smith wants a review. Not a no-ball. The ball pitched in line with the stumps and straightened. Borren planted his foot forward, tried to play across the line, and got hit on the pad. Replays show it was hitting the middle of middle, or thereabouts. Asoka has to change his decision. 109/6
    32.3 cleaned up by the googly. Bukhari swung at the ball with a rather large gap between bat and pad. Tahir pitched the googly on a length and spun it through that yawning gap. 110/8
    not out
    34.3 was that the flipper? Seemed like it, short on middle and skidded on, he just didn't have a clue, was caught on the back foot and rapped on the pads right in front of middle. He's called for a referral but replays show there was no impact with the bat and that he was dead plumb 120/9
    34.5 It's all over for Netherlands, Tahir slipped that one in quicker, around middle and off, and it appeared to go straight on, the batsman stepped forward, tried to close the face and missed and was struck in line. The umpire gave it out, but a referral was called for by Netherlands. As it turned, replays only confirmed he was gone 120/10
