    0.6 hurries it outside off, too quick for Pandey who is late to latch onto it, tries to drag it over midwicket, gets the top edge, excellent judgement from the slip fielder, Harris it was, who ran back immediately after the ball made impact with the bat, kept his eyes on it throughout and clasped it comfortably with a third man running in towards him 6/1
    6.2 Dravid hasn't really had much strike this innings, O'Brien held this back just a hint, slightly short on middle and leg and Dravid tried to paddle it fine, missed it, it lobbed off something and Manou took it comfortably, we need to see if he gloved that, the umpire certainly thought so, replays show it caught him high on the pad and then ricocheted off his arm to the keeper 53/3
    1.2 one of their musclemen is back in the hut, superb catching from South Australia so far, short of a length outside off and Uthappa chased it, cracked it fairly well, sweet sound of bat hitting ball but it was uppish and Callum Ferguson made no mistake at cover point diving to his left 7/2
    8.4 the bowling change works, Taylor's in the mood to score runs, went after a delivery that wasn't too wide for the cut, nor too short, got a thick edge straight to Manou who took it with ease, South Australia have struck back to upset the counterattack, perhaps a touch too quick for Taylor there 69/4
    19.5 White's up and down innings has ended in characteristic fashion. He has played a lot of shots, some of them have looked really good, but the timing has not always been so. Stays back in the crease again, converts the full ball into driving length and packs a punch with the lofted drive over mid off. But not timed well enough to clear long off. Simple catch. Bangalore all out for 154. Game on. 154/10
    10.5 Kohli has succumbed to the bounce! The bowling changes are working here for Klinger. That was short of a length outside off and turning away, Kohli's intention to cut was right, but the ball got big on him and took the top edge, ballooning up to the fielder at short third man 76/5
    16.6 du Preez's frenetic innings has come to a characteristic end here. Not a great ball, very short and wide outside off, he queerly decided to pull instead of go through the off side. Hits low on the bat and gets the top edge, it goes straight up and settles in the grasp of the fielder at long on 134/6
    17.3 and gone this time! Putland holds the length back, Praveen looks to drive without moving forward or getting to the pitch, and chops the attempted cover drive into the stumps 140/7
    19.1 Vinay's gone! Looks to make contact with the almighty heave over midwicket. He is looking towards fine leg when he makes contact, so can't really blame him for not timing it well enough, or placing it. Straight into deep square leg's lap when it lands. Borgas juggled but held. 152/8
    19.3 Steyn's stumps are straightened! Backs away, looking to scythe Christian through the covers, but he misses and off stump is on a roll! 153/9

    14.2 Harris is run out! Sounds cliched, but it seemed the only way these gius could have been separated. Googly from Kumble, Harris goes back in the crease and chops it away square and goes for a single. Kohli at point arrows it in to Kumble and he is out by some distance. Lots of hesitation before they started, and he paid for that. 124/1

    14.6 Manou has been comprehensively Kumble-d here! That slow loopy googly has been the trademark of Kumble's recent bowling and it has done Manou in. He reaches out, thinks he has it covered and plays over it. The ball broke back in and shattered the stumps. 125/2
