    8.3 Harbhajan has lured Smith to his demise. Smith was charging out, Harbhajan slowed up the pace, retained the flight but got it to dip rapidly on Smith who lunged out in the end, trying to drag it to the on side and top-edging it high to midwicket. Harbhajan pumps his fist. 59/2

    1.4 ah! the commentator's curse. He gets a fatal inside edge. It was a heavily packed off-side as Dhoni had moved an extra fielder after the previous four and Gibbs went for the leg side. Mistake. It wasn't all that short and it was outside off stump, Gibbs went for the pull and dragged it back to his stumps. 13/1
    17.2 AB falls after a very fine knock on a sharply turning track. He rushed down the track, didn't reach the pitch and tried to adjust with a big slog sweep but the ball turned to get the leading edge. Jadeja back-pedaled to get under the ball. 110/4
    14.4 Stumped! Duminy, who never looked in on this spin track, was beaten in the flight as he lunged forward before he was beaten by the turn. Dhoni did the rest. Seeing Duminy struggle, you just have to nod in admiration at how well AB has played on this spin track. 98/3
    19.2 Caught at the long-off boundary. It was full, it was the slower one, and it was around the off stump, Bouch flayed it hard and high to left of RP who holds a good catch running around the boundary. 120/5

    6.2 And spin does the trick right away. It was flighted around the off stump, Gambhir tried to chip it over extra cover but the ball spun to take the edge and flew towards deep cover 48/1
    9.5 SA are doing superbly here. Rohit falls to a spinner now. Very risky shot. He shuffled outside off stump and tried to flick it from there but ended up slicing a dolly of a catch to backward point. 56 for 3 and they are wobbling here. Enter the captain. 56/3
    8.6 Spin is king on this wicket. Botha lured Raina into the big hit with a well flighted delivery on the middle and leg stump. Raina went for the big slog sweep but was done in by the turn to edge it high to long-on. Gone! Another failure for the young man. 55/2
    18.2 Big wicket. It was a similar delivery to the previous one; another yorker length delivery outside off stump, Yuvraj tries to square drive initially, gets the bat down in a hurry in the end to jab it away and it deflected to Boucher who dived to his left to take it. The bowler appeals for a catch. Bowden is not sure and goes upstairs. The ball bounced just before the bat hit the ground and the ball took the edge to Boucher, who took it cleanly. The verdict is out. 106/7
    12.5 Dhoni is run out. Yuvraj is stunned that Dhoni even ran for it. It slipped down the leg side, a wide, it runs to Boucher who doesn't collect it cleanly but the ball didn't roll away too far from him. He just took couple of steps and he had the ball. Dhoni was more than half-way down the track and Boucher relayed the throw to the bowler who took a few steps before calmly under-arming a direct hit at the non-striker's end. Yuvraj looks very surprised. 67/4
    13.3 South Africa climb all over India who spin away towards the abyss. Yuvraj stands alone. It was flighted delivery around the off stump, perhaps stopped a touch on Yusuf who pushed it tamely to cover. South Africa roar. 69/5
    17.2 Botha takes out Harbhajan with another full dipping toss. Harbhajan swung it straight to midwicket 100/6

    18.5 Zaheer holes out to AB at long-on. It was full, not yorker length, and Zaheer got under the ball and lofted it high but couldn't clear AB. And then they were two. 110/8
