    11.3 drawn into the drive again, but this time it is a thick edge to the man at point 28/1
    26.2 plays down the wrong line, now it is up to the bowlers to stick with Canning 80/6
    12.1 strikes with his first ball. Padded away by Behardien, a vociferous appeal and umpire Samsoodien agrees witht he fielders 31/2
    14.3 a nasty lifting delivery, Admas tries to get out of the way but it hits the glove and goes to 2nd slip. He walks off shaking his head. 47/3
    20.2 hit on the back leg and that is out 61/4

    62.1 down the track he goes again, big heave-ho but this time he can't get back in time and the home team is dismissed 172/10

    0.5 shortish, he goes on the pull but plays over it, perhaps a bottom edge to help it on its way 0/1
    9.3 keeps low and he made the mistake of playing off the back foot, first First Class wicket for Luke Petersen 10/2
    26.5 on the drive, but he has edged it low to first slip where Gray makes no mistake 69/3
    36.5 a full toss, but he has hit it straight back to the bowler who celebrates his first First Class wicket 110/5
    28.4 played on, sounded like an inside edge 71/4
    44.4 on the drive and adjudged caught behind, it did sound a bit like the pad though 127/6
    51.4 the move works as he drives low and snapped up by Adams. It would not have carried to where he was standing in the previous over 164/7
    62.2 straightens on him as he looks to glance. The WP fielders congratulate Bothma for his fifer. 193/10

    54.3 a fatal error of judgement as he shoulders arms to one that nips back and takes his off stump. The fielders can celebrate their success with a nice cold drink - it is pretty warm out there 169/8
    56.3 pushed to covers, Kleinveldt swoops and this time it's timber. Finally, says one of the fielders 172/9

    2.4 no joking there, a short ball and he is on the hook, but top edged and the kpper makes some distance before holding a diving catch 6/1
    9.5 offers that perfect defence again, but this time there is the slightest chink and the ball crashes into the stumps 25/3
    9 edged into the slips, Behardien stands his groun but the umpires decide that it did carry and off he must go 21/2
    24.2 a tame way for Adams to go, turned into the hands of Jennings at short leg. Unusual to see such a tall man in that position, but he stayed nice and low 65/5
    20.1 flashing steer shot, must have got a faint edge as umpire Paleker, soon to be part of the overseas umpire exchange program, is quick witht he finger. masondo's pain will be instantly diminished 52/4
    48.3 skier to extra cover, Gerber does well to keep his eye on it as it swirls in the freshening breeze 128/6
    73.4 he can't believe his bad luck as he goes on the back foot and is bowled just short of his centrury, and by the part time bowler as well 227/8
    50.4 played off the back foot, looked to be playing the glance but it was a straight ball 133/7

    75.1 bet Jennings did not think he would be bowling today, let alon taking a second wicket. One of the bails has been broken, and you can be sure he will rag the bowlers about that. 233/9
    90.3 end of the party as he pulls it to the man at mid wicket 275/10

    2.1 pushes at that one, edged to 1st slip and WP are on their way too 2/1
    24.4 kept a bit low, he played off the back foot and got himself castled. Bothma now has 9 wickets in the match. 53/5
    7 hits him in front and he is sent on his way, lingers in the middle as if he wanted to call for a review, must have thought he hit it 14/2
    8.2 unlike his teammate, he tucks his bat under his arm as soon as the finger goes up. He was the top scorer in the first innings, and Gauteng are in trouble now 16/3
    21.1 pushes forward and hit low on the front pad 49/4

    34.5 hits him low on the pad, even from side on that looked stone dead 93/7
    43.3 edged onto the pad and snapped up at short leg 118/8
    45.3 goes for th pull but he loops up a catch, Canning steps out from behind the stumps to take it 126/9
    46.5 struck on the pad and number 11 normally struggles to win the decision, a richly deserved 10 wicket haul for Bothma and WP keep a toe in the race to defend their title 127/10
