    27.2 caught behind! There was some extra bounce on that and a bit of turn into Amla, who shaped to cut and was cramped for room. The ball got big on him and the edge was taken sharply. Dhoni flings the ball high in the air in celebration 127/2
    8.3 gone! Pitched up, Smith's eyes light up and he launches into a drive but hits it straight to Tendulkar at mid-off. Khan gets Smith once again, he's well and truly won this battle. An early breakthrough - just what India wanted! 41/1
    35.4 a great bouncer from Khan, Kallis whips it away from in front of his nose and out into the deep ... they come back for the second but the throw is good and the bails are whipped off in a flash ... he's gone! What terrific work from Dhoni, he took the ball in front of the stumps from Harbhajan's throw and swivelled round in mid-air to catch Kallis short. Pressure on South Africa's middle order! 173/3
    40.3 but he's gone now! It was the orthodox slog sweep this time, he cracked it right out of the middle but didn't get much height in the shot. Kohli dived forward at square to hold the catch above the turf, and Harbhajan waves AB back to the pavilion. India back in the game 223/4
    42.3 Duminy falls ... eventually! He charged out again, was beaten as the ball was speared down the leg side. Dhoni fumbled the take, and Duminy, who was several metres down, started back for the crease. Dhoni quickly recovered, picking the ball up and whipping the bails off with the batsman short 238/5
    not out
    43.6 There's a review, but van Wyk looked stone dead here. He tried to reverse sweep a very full delivery, and was hit on the front pad ... the finger goes up for the second time, he's gone! Replays suggest it would've clipped leg - it was left to the on-field call. If he'd been given not out that decision would have stood too, but that wasn't the case so he's got to go 247/6
    47.5 and then a wicket! Botha had just hit two boundaries and he wanted a third, swinging really hard but the ball swirled up off the top edge over the covers ... Suresh Raina, the substitute fielder, runs across and holds a great catch, the ball coming from behind him. Another one goes, and the match continues to hang in the balance! 279/7
