    10.1 attempting some of his special brand of diabolical defence, Ambrose coming from around the wicket, inside edge into the stumps, that is so not an unusual way for him to get out 43/2
    2.1 coming forward, there's the outside edge, good catch for Jacobs diving to his right, the collapse starts...... now. 10/1
    19.3 he has all the time in the world to scratch around for runs, but oh no, he's to play the hook shot, ball directly square, Chanderpaul was at deep square leg, he dives forward for a great catch 62/4
    16.2 another classic Lehmann innings for the scrapbook, driving outsid ethe off stump, ball flies away square, Adams pulls off a pearler of a catch at point, one handed dive low to his left 53/3
