    86 Burger wins anouther lbw decision from karl Hurter, looks like it pitched leg stumps and straightened 281/7
    72 gets well forward to defend, is a bit amazzed to see umpire Hurter raising the finger 250/4
    77.1 Kemp is also stunned to see himself given out, it hit him on the back foot and came back sharply - off the inside edge maybe? No TV here, so we will never know 254/5
    84 another mistimed back fott drive, but this time it is in the air long enough for hendricks to dive to his left and snap up the catch 274/6
    97.4 loses patience and goes for the big hit, but he skies it to mid wicket 340/8
    98.1 tempted into the hook, and he has hit it straight down the throat of the man on the long leg boundary 340/9
    98.5 has an almighty swing at it, gets a faint edge. There was some doubt whether it had carried, but Louw takes the keeper's word and walks off 341/10
