    4.4 Gone! India lose their first one. It's Gambhir who falls. He comes down the pitch and tries to heave the ball over the on side. He can't quite get hold of it and the ball goes up in the air. This time the fielder calls it - it's Graeme Smith - and settles under a catch at mid-off after running a few yards. 32/1
    5.1 On fire! It's Sehwag gone now and India are in deep, deep trouble here. That was a soft dismissal after an extremely promising start from Sehwag. That was short of a length and outside the off, Sehwag plays away from his body without much conviction, trying to steer the ball through the off side and only manages an edge. Mark Boucher pouches the catch. 33/3
    4.6 Another! Dinesh Karthik falls! That was a rather uncontrolled shot first up. Pollock pitches one up on the pads and Karthik flicks lazily. The ball loops up in the air and straight into Albie Morkel's hands at square-leg. Karthik didn't even try to hit that one especially hard. Now that's put India in a spot of bother after a reasonably good start on a tricky pitch. 33/2
    10.3 caught! Uthappa takes a step down the pitch and tries to loft Morkel down the ground, he doesn't get the necessary elevation and hits it straight to Smith at mid-off, India are in massive amounts of trouble 61/4

    19.4 it's all happening! Dhoni flashed hard outside the off stump and edged it to Boucher who went for it with one hand, the ball popped out and he fumbled the second attempt as well, the batsmen had run the single and tried to steal the second while Boucher rued the dropped chance, Philander realised what was happening and threw the stumps down at the batsman's end with Dhoni an inch short 146/5

    1.1 very full and on the stumps, RP Singh gets this ball bang on target. The ball swings back in Gibbs has only got his foot a bit down the pitch as the ball beats the bat and crashes into the pad. There's a spontaneous appeal and the finger goes up! India strike. Gibbs is not happy with the call and is shaking his head but he has to go. That was the perfect left-arm seamer's delivery to the right-hand batsman. 11/1
    1.4 Stunner! That is an absolute ripper from Dinesh Karthik in the slips cordon. It's a wide, swinging, full delivery from RP Singh and Smith has a real go at it. The ball flies off the outside edge really quick and wide. Karthik throws himself full length to his left and catches this one with both hands. That is a catch right out of the top drawer. You won't see too many more like that. 12/2
    2.3 Corker! very full, very fast, very straight. This is the straight one from Sreesanth and it's pacy. de Villiers is late on the shot and plays down the wrong line as well. This one is too close and he won't get away with it. Simon Taufel agrees with the bowler and up goes the finger 12/3
    5.4 just short of a length and on the off. Driven away to the off side. Rohit Sharma swoops down on the ball from cover, picks the ball up one-handed on the dive and throws almost parallel to the ground. The throw is powerful and accurate and nails the stumps. That is a sensational bit of fielding and a big, big wicket for India 30/4
    16.4 what's going on? Boucher tried to drive a full ball from outside off stump through the off side, he got an inside edge that hit the stumps and dislodged a bail, Sreesanth didn't seem to realise and held his head in disappointment thinking the ball had missed the stumps, but it hadn't, it was bowled 100/6
    5.5 full, quick, swinging in, RP Singh comes around the stumps and fires a missile down the pitch. Pollock is late on the shot and the ball absolutely uproots the leg stump. That's a cracker of a ball and you can't really blame Pollock for that. India really turning on the heat here. 31/5

    18.4 bowled him! RP bowls a full ball on middle and off stump, Morkel clears his front foot out of the way and tries to hit through the on side, he misses and hears ball hitting wood, South Africa are sinking and somewhere New Zealand are celebrating 109/8
    17.4 Harbhajan tosses it up teasingly, Philander charges and tries to hit him straight down the ground, he misses and Karthik completes an easy stumping, South Africa are stumbling 103/7
    19.4 van der Wath charges and has another swing but once again he gets beaten, Karthik whips off the bails in a trice and Harbhajan is elated, South Africa have been upset here, and New Zealand celebrate! 111/9
