    1.6 that will do, Morne gets the breakthrough early on, lures Porterfield in to the drive, but driving morne is fraught with danger at the best of times because of that short of a good length he bowls, this one moved away after angling in around off stump, and the outside edge went safely to first slip, the South African slip cordon is as safe as a bank 8/1
    3.3 Stirling does what du Plessis did earlier, guides one straight to slip, second slip this time, this one came in from short of a length, he was caught in the crease and had a weak dab at it, and it looped slowly in the air to settle in to Jacques Kallis' hands 19/2
    11.5 Joyce goes for the sweep to a delivery that angles in, misses and is hit on the pads, umpire Dharmasena sends him back, but Ireland go for the review, and that would have hit middle and leg, Ireland are reeling here 51/4
    8.5 Kallis gets one now, Niall went charging down the track, got beside the line of one going across him, looking to go over extra cover, but got a faint tickle on its way through to the keeper 35/3
    21.5 arm ball from Peterson, Wilson is wrapped on the pads to spark a huge appeal ... and he's given! After a quick chat, they review it, but to no avail. Ireland lose both of their set batsmen in the space of three balls, and they're sliding now 92/6
    21.3 gone this time! O'Brien was aiming for long-on but sliced across the ball, skying it up for Hashim Amla to take an easy catch at long-off. No O'Brien show tonight ... 92/5
    25.5 Peterson's got another one! Well with the required rate rising they had to try and target the boundary, no point just knocking it around. Cusack took a couple of steps down and tried to mow it down the ground, but the ball spun away from him, taking a thick edge and swirling up for a catch in the covers 107/7
    32.4 just one more to go now, Kallis comes round the wicket, Mooney drives and the edge goes straight through to van Wyk. He beat him a couple of times in the last over, now he gets one to touch the bat as Mooney drives rooted to the crease 137/9
    29.5 caught behind! Johnston presses forward and again the ball doesn't spin an inch, taking a clear outside edge and nestling in van Wyk's right glove 123/8
    33.2 superb catch from van Wyk! Morkel slammed one down much shorter, it leapt up at young Dockrell and took the edge of the shoulder of the bat, the keeper tumbled to his right to complete the dismissal and that's the end of Ireland 141/10
