    0.5 again full and Pitcher plays all over it. Great bowling, making the man play, and he gets his reward 2/1
    8.5 Magala follows up his indiscrete no ball with a short delivery and has Baard on the back foot, defending. He edges it towards the slip cordon where the other Smuts brother gets in on the catching action behind the wicket 20/2

    11.3 full, play too late and played right over it. Crashes into middle stump and Bell's constant fiddling with the landing area appears to have worked for him 27/3
    13.2 full, straight, on the pads and the entire team goes up in unison in an appeal for LBW. The umpire agrees and raises his finger 34/4
    24 batsman hangs out his bat and the ball catches the edge. It drops slightly on Walters as it carries through, so he has to dive forward. Good catch 70/5
    47.3 a bit silly. Played a reverse sweep straight into the hands of slip 147/7
    28.3 another attempted drive but this time the edge is thinner and it carries straight through to Walters 85/6

    58 attempted drive, edged straight to Ackermann at first slip. His reaction is more one of frustration than celebration after six dropped catches this morning 201/8
    66.2 another leading edge, sky high, right down mid on's throat. Again its Bell and this time he makes no mistake. He hangs on and endures a little ribbing from his teammates, including an exagerratedly late celebration from the man at point 241/9
