  South Africa 1st innings R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal GC Smith* c Nicol b Martin 53 118 74 6 0 71.62
26.5 caught at cover! After four deliveries that troubled Smith, Martin pitched one full and wide outside off stump, Smith went after it, playing a firm drive but not middling it. He hit it flat and straight to Rob Nicol at cover 86/2
View dismissal AN Petersen lbw b Boult 11 45 29 2 0 37.93
9.2 a huge yell for lbw but Aleem Dar says not out. Ross Taylor has asked for a review. The ball was full and pitched in line, Petersen moved his front foot across and tried to drive on the leg side, he missed and got hit pretty low on the front pad. Doesn't look like an inside edge either, nothing on replays. That's hitting the middle of middle. Aleem Dar changes his not-out decision. Boult's broken through. 34/1
View dismissal HM Amla c Taylor b Vettori 62 149 102 8 1 60.78
41.4 caught at slip, Amla's gone, but the umpire is checking to see if it is a no-ball, it isn't, Vettori's foot is fine. Amla went back to cut but the ball bounced a bit more and he edged it with the top of his bat. The ball looped to Taylor at first slip, a relatively easy catch 156/5
View dismissal JH Kallis c Taylor b Martin 0 7 2 0 0 0.00
28.1 Martin's produced a ripper, and Taylor's taken a stunner to dismiss Kallis for a duck. Martin got the ball to rise off a good length around off stump and move away just a little, it squared Kallis up in his crease and he prodded at it. The ball hit the outside edge high on the bat and flew quickly to Taylor at first slip, he had to dive to his left to take the catch 90/3
View dismissal AB de Villiers lbw b Martin 0 4 1 0 0 0.00
28.2 lbw! Martin's on fire and on a hat-trick, New Zealand are celebrating while de Villiers thinks about a review. He has asked for it. Martin nipped the ball back into the right-hander from outside off and de Villiers was caught on the crease as he tried to play across the line. The ball hit him around the knee roll and that's plumb. 90/4
View dismissal JA Rudolph c Boult b Bracewell 52 162 99 5 0 52.52
64.6 caught at point! But the umpire is checking Bracewell's front foot, he's landed just behind the line. Just. The ball was not that full but there was width outside off. Rudolph decided to attack it and drive hard away from his body. He ended up spooning it straight to Boult at point 222/9
View dismissal MV Boucher run out (Bracewell/†van Wyk) 4 9 2 1 0 200.00
43.1 Vettori to Rudolph, I think Boucher's been run out! But we need to wait for replays. He's short by a few inches. Rudolph dabbed the ball towards backward point and set off, Bracewell swooped on the ball quickly by running to his right - he is a swift mover for a big man - picked up with one hand, and fired the throw accurately to van Wyk, who broke the stumps neatly 161/6
View dismissal DW Steyn c Taylor b Bracewell 9 22 20 0 0 45.00
48.2 edged, and Guptill's dropped it! But Taylor's caught it! I think they are checking the front foot for the no-ball again but Bracewell is okay this time. The ball was short of a length outside off and Steyn pushed at it from the crease, he got a thick outside edge to second slip, where Guptill fumbled the catch. It went to him at head height and burst through his fingers. The ball lobbed up for Taylor at first slip who dived behind Guptill and caught the rebound. In fact, Taylor fumbled his first attempt as well, but recovered to catch it on the second take 179/7
View dismissal VD Philander c Williamson b Martin 22 61 58 2 0 37.93
63.6 caught at gully! The ball was short and wide outside off, nothing special, there to be hit. Philander went hard at it, slashing his bat, edging the ball to gully where Williamson held a sharp catch at head height 214/8
M Morkel not out 13 22 14 2 0 92.85
View dismissal Imran Tahir run out (Bracewell/Vettori) 10 16 10 1 0 100.00
68.2 from Bracewell, there's been a run out and South Africa are all out. It was another full ball on middle and leg stump, Tahir flicked it off his pads through midwicket and they ran an easy two. They then wanted a third, which was risky. Vettori chased the ball across a slow outfield and threw the ball back to the bowler, who broke the stumps and beat Tahir's dive 238/10

View dismissal RJ Nicol c Smith b Philander 6 13 12 0 0 50.00
3.2 caught at first slip! Nicol prods at a ball that pitches on a good length, bounces a bit more and straightens off the surface. He edges it high on his bat and it carries comfortably to Smith 7/1
View dismissal MJ Guptill b Morkel 16 69 43 2 0 37.20
16.5 bowled him! Guptill has not survived his first ball after lunch. He pushed forward at a length ball outside off, with his bat a little away from his body. The ball went through that gap off the inside edge and crashed into middle and leg. Guptill was off balance as he played that ball, his front foot hadn't landed 41/2
View dismissal BB McCullum c & b Imran Tahir 48 149 102 6 0 47.05
38.1 caught and bowled! And look at Tahir celebrate! McCullum's lost his composure and tried to sweep Tahir, he got a top edge towards midwicket, and Tahir ran across to take the catch himself. There was a deep square leg for that shot as well 106/3
View dismissal LRPL Taylor* c †Boucher b Morkel 44 108 77 7 0 57.14
41.4 caught behind! Taylor's played a horrible shot. The short of a length ball was wide outside off stump, it was perhaps there to be cut but Taylor didn't move his feet to get closer to the ball. He ended up reaching far away from his body and nicked it to Boucher 116/4
View dismissal KS Williamson c †Boucher b Philander 11 45 45 0 0 24.44
49.6 caught behind! The ball was pitched short of a length just outside off stump and it held its line, Williamson tried to punch off the back foot and got the outside edge through to Boucher 135/5
View dismissal DL Vettori c & b Kallis 46 107 78 8 0 58.97
67.3 caught and bowled! A strange dismissal. The ball was short of a length outside off, Vettori was on the back foot preparing to play a horizontal bat shot - a pull. And then he decided not to. And didn't lower his bat. The ball thudded into the bat and lobbed up off it. Kallis had to accelerate during his follow through, sprint forward, dive and tumble while taking a low catch 188/6
View dismissal CFK van Wyk c Smith b Philander 36 130 92 5 0 39.13
81.2 edged and taken! Philander keeps it on a good length just outside off stump, van Wyk is caught in his crease and pokes at the ball as it leaves him off the pitch, he didn't move his feet and the outside edge is taken low at first slip. Smith stooped forward and just got his fingers under the ball, van Wyk walks off, and then hears boos from the crowd who think the catch isn't clean, and stops. And then he continues walking. It was clean. 229/7
View dismissal DAJ Bracewell b Steyn 25 70 46 5 0 54.34
84.6 bowled him! That's the Steyn trademark. The fast ball on a good length, pitching on leg and middle and bending towards off. Bracewell is caught on the crease and defends down the wrong line. The ball screams past the outside edge and hits off stump. That delivery has accounted for far more illustrious batsmen. 239/9
View dismissal TG Southee c Smith b Philander 0 2 2 0 0 0.00
81.4 that's a poor shot from Southee and he's been caught at first slip by Smith as well. He simply wafted away from his body at a good length ball that seamed away from him and edged it at a comfortable height. No fight at all from him. Tame. 229/8

11.2 he's been caught at mid-off. Once again Petersen reached forward to drive a good length ball on the up, he was playing away from his body and did not time it well. He ended up hitting it flat and Southee moved to his left and slid as he held the catch 45/1

81.1 Takes out Graeme Smith! Short of a good length on the off, appeared to hold its line, Smith, on the back foot, pushed at it away from his body and got an inside edge onto the stumps 247/3
View dismissal HM Amla c Guptill b Bracewell 2 3 4 0 0 50.00
11.6 edged and Guptill's caught a blinder at second slip. Has that carried? The umpires are conferring and going up to the TV umpire. Bracewell's front foot is okay as he delivers a good length ball outside off, Amla pushes away from his body on the front foot, and edges it low between second and third slip. The fielder at third slip dived to his left but the ball was too far away. Guptill dived to his right, and caught the ball with one hand, centimetres off the ground. It's a very low catch but it looks clean, in my opinion, as clean as such low catches can look on television replays. Nicol diving from third slip to his left obscured what would have been one of the best views 47/2
View dismissal JH Kallis c Nicol b Boult 113 380 263 16 0 42.96
97.3 caught, a softish dismissal but it doesn't matter for New Zealand, they'll be glad to see the back of Kallis, pitched up on the pads, a juicy delivery there for being dispatched but Kallis didn't time it all too well and played it uppishly, straight into the hands of an alert midwicket 283/4
