    1.4 an ugly shot costs him his wicket, he tries to mow him across the line but plays far too early, doesn't pick the slower ball, swishes at thin air and the off stump lands a few yards back 3/1
    12.3 another wild heave claims a wicket, pitches outside leg, he swings too early and the ball clips his thigh and pushes back the leg stump 82/2
    13.4 timed that a little too well, fullish in length outside off, Katich gets underneath the bounce and scoops it effortlessly over the off side and lands down Rossouw's throat at long-off 84/3
    17.4 soft dismissal, he makes room to a good length delivery outside off, reaches out and tamely lobs it to short point 126/4

    0.6 the finger went up immediately, lands on leg stump and holds its line, the ball skids through quickly and clips him on the pads in line with middle, he tries to clip it to the on side but the ball is too quick for him, umpire Hazare had no doubt 2/1
    2.4 direct hit! McLaren clips it in front of mid-on and challenges the fielder by going for the single, Katich runs forward, takes aim and has just one stump to aim at, umpire Hazare asks for the replay but the Blues knew they had him 13/2
    3.1 the slower ball claims him! Drops it on a good length outside off and the ball keeps low too, he tries to bash it past midwicket but Hughes plucks it inches off the ground at short midwicket 14/3
    6.3 the top order freefall continues, Hauritz cuts back on the pace and flights it outside off on seeing the batsman advance, Elgar is completely foxed and Smith knocks out the off stump after gathering the ball 24/5
    5.6 tame dismissal for the captain, Clark pitches it up outside off, the batsman tries to force it through the off side but ends up chipping it off the bottom half of the bat straight to mid-off, easy take 22/4
    9.4 Doctrove doesn't ask for the replay, Bollinger fires it full on the off stump from round the wicket, Bailey squirts it out to mid-off and risks the single to Katich, another direct hit sends an Eagles batsman back to the pavilion 36/6
