    45.5 end of a patient innings with an impatient shot. He walked across a bit and tried to flick it to fine leg, but it held its line and rapped the off stump. 128/4
    26.2 goes for the big drive, but a leading edge sends it high in the air. Kleinveldt waits for it at point and puches the catch 55/1
    32.3 on the pull, top edge gives Viret an easy catch at sq leg, and Muller has his maiden first class wicket 70/2
    42.5 leans forward to defend, it clips the top of off stump. Perhaps he should stick to his aggressive play. 122/3
    83.1 goes for another big hit but is taken on the fence at long off. The end of an extremely entertaining innings. 309/6
    80.1 and immediate success as the skipper has a swing at it and loses his off stump 298/5
    84.5 nips back, perhaps off the inside edge, and knocks back the eg stump 315/7
    93.1 flashing drive, this time he does get the edge and taken by the keeper 345/9
    92.2 driven in the air and taken low at point 337/8

    93.3 tries to avoid a short ball but it brushes the gloves. Less than 2 overs for the day, so stumps will be drawn. WP finish with a lead of 6. 345/10

    6 flicked off the pads but there is a man at short mid wicket for that shot 25/1
    20.3 taken at leg slip. Batsman can't believe his bad luck and lingers for a while, even after being given the finger by umpire Samsoodien 69/2
    41 looks like another controversial decision. Playing around the corner and taken by leg slip. Schreuder waits for the decision and still suggests it did not carry 150/3
    55.1 lofted on drive, but Viljoen is waiting for it at long on 205/7
    42.5 unluciky for Hantam. Adams drove it down the ground, Opperman got a hand to it and it crashed into the stumps. 160/4
    48 just like the last one, but this time it gets through his defences and uproots the off stump 176/5
    52.5 thick edge to 3rd man, run on the shot but Williams is bang on target 199/6
    57.2 they have almost given up on the appeal, but this time Mr White is in agreement and raises the dreaded finger 209/8
    61.4 lofted on drive and a comfortable catch. Williams is congratulated on his fifth wicket. After some indecision Petersen is recalled and that is the declaration. Tea will be taken. 216/9
