    7.1 smart fielding at short midwicket! Butler drops it short of a length, it sits up and Smith short-arm-jabs it to the on side where Brendon McCullum intercepts and immediately releases and under-arm fling to the other end as Kallis is out of his crease, he has to turn back and stretch the bat out but McCullum finds his mark and Kallis is out by an inch. Very quick work from McCullum 49/1
    11.2 thats gone straight through Smith! Butler comes back and strikes immediately, pitching the ball up just outside leg stump and getting some shape, Smith plays all over the ball as he attempts to on-drive and middle and leg stumps are shattered 63/3
    10.3 soft dismissal that, just collects a return catch back in front of his face as Gibbs, without getting to the pitch of that gentle delivery, pops it straight back to Styris 63/2
    12.4 bowled em! Roelof goes for a duck, advancing down the track but only ending up yorking himself to a quicker ball that skids back in to knock back leg stump 65/4
    18.5 gone this time though! Mills gets his man with a straighter one on the stumps, almost a yorker but not quite, Duminy gets under it looking for elevation but can only chip it down to mid-on 121/7
    14.5 slower ball on a length, Duminy reaches out and collects on the full, pushing the ball past mid-off, he runs across and gets one but the call for the second was just not on as Guptill sprints in from long-off and gets AB short with a superb direct hit 85/5
    17.2 simple catch to short extra cover as Boucher reaches out and scoops a low full toss from outside off stump straight to the man on the circle 107/6

    16.6 he's got the dangerman! McCullum waltzes out and goes for another shot over extra cover but plays all over the ball and Boucher stumps him by a country mile 93/4
    2.1 easy catch for mid-on! Steyn hurries the ball on to Guptill, who gets up and tries his favorite paddle pull over midwicket but makes a meal of it and Roelof gobbles it 19/1
    3.3 oh well held Kallis! A good reflex catch from the big man, running forward and diving to take a failed attempt to pull a short ball, it just lobs up off the shoulder of the bat and Kallis plucks it an inch off the ground 26/2
    14.3 and he's gone right through Taylor, clattering the stumps with a full and straight delivery, he's been struggling to time the ball with the hamstring and swings and misses 82/3
    19.6 and South Africa have won by a run! Its a good ball, full and straight as it should be, Oram backs away and swings it along the ground down to long-on, he and Styris run two, then as Parnell fumbles the collection Styris charges down for an utterly nonexistent third run and gets shooed back, by which time Smith collects the ball from cover and does the rest 127/5
