15.1

Doherty to Kallis, 1 run, nice batting, dropped with very soft hands into the off side

15.4

Doherty to Kallis, no run, some turn there for Doherty and Kallis plays square into the off side

South Africa 73/1   JH Kallis 14* (12b 1x4 1x6)

South Africa 84/1   JH Kallis 21* (22b 1x4 1x6)

19.1

Watson to Kallis, no run, bit of pain for Kallis, there's extra bounce from Watson and it takes the fingers on the bottom hands as Kallis defends

19.2

Watson to Kallis, 1 run, slower ball, although not by a huge amount, and it's tucked through square leg

20.4

20.5

Cummins to Kallis, 1 wide, you can't get forward to that! Cummins gets Kallis ducking with a quick bouncer. Ah, but it's a bit too short, and is called wide

20.5

Cummins to Kallis, 1 run, nice batting from Kallis, a drop-and-run single taken after the ball is dabbed into the off side

South Africa 93/1   JH Kallis 26* (30b 1x4 1x6)

21.3

Doherty to Kallis, no run, pushed to cover point off the back foot

21.4

Doherty to Kallis, no run, Doherty held this one back a bit, and got some purchase off the surface. Kallis waits for the spin and chops to gully

21.5

Doherty to Kallis, 1 run, too short from the left-arm spinner, and Kallis hammers a cut out into the deep

South Africa 96/1   JH Kallis 27* (34b 1x4 1x6)

22.2

Cummins to Kallis, no run, Kallis sets himself to drive, but doesn't time the shot into the covers

22.3

24.3

Clarke to Kallis, 1 run, drilled down to long off, good shot for one run

24.6

25.2

25.3

Doherty to Kallis, 1 run, placed to cover once again, this time there's a single to be had

25.5

Doherty to Kallis, no run, dropped by Haddin! It was a really tough chance though, Kallis got a huge edge on it and the ball deviated sharply. That would've been an absolute blinder if he'd even got a glove on it

25.6

Doherty to Kallis, OUT, dabbed to short third man ... and this could well be run out! Amla had to hurry as the throw was fired in. They're going to have another look at this. The return from the fielder was bang on target, and Amla is short of his ground! Cummins was the fielder. He's got quite an arm

HM Amla run out 52 (112m 72b 7x4 0x6) SR: 72.22

South Africa 117/2   JH Kallis 41* (48b 2x4 2x6)

27.5

Doherty to Kallis, no run, Kallis gets forward to drive square, but once again hits the point fielder

27.6

Doherty to Kallis, FOUR, this time he gets it past him! A bad end to what was a decent over from Doherty. He offered up a long hop outside off that Kallis cut firmly to the cover boundary, beating a diving Hussey out there

South Africa 124/2   JH Kallis 46* (54b 3x4 2x6)

28.2

Cummins to Kallis, 1 run, angled in towards the batsman's midriff, but it's glanced to fine leg with minimum fuss

28.4

Cummins to Kallis, no run, Cummins targets middle stump with a full delivery, Kallis tapping to midwicket

28.5

Cummins to Kallis, no run, good length from Cummins, and great wheels too. Kallis was neither forward or back as he defended this pacy delivery

28.6

Cummins to Kallis, 1 run, chopped down to gully, and the call for a single from Duminy is immediate

South Africa 128/2   JH Kallis 48* (58b 3x4 2x6)

29.1

Doherty to Kallis, no run, floated down on middle, Kallis getting well forward to push it back to the bowler

29.3

Doherty to Kallis, 1 run, slammed out to deep cover off the front foot

29.6

Doherty to Kallis, no run, was there a touch on this as well? Kallis propped forward but the ball ripped past him and bounced out of Haddin's gloves again. Not sure if he got a touch on it or not. Yep, HotSpot confirms it

South Africa 130/2   JH Kallis 49* (62b 3x4 2x6)

30.2

Cummins to Kallis, 1 run, Kallis goes to fifty with a drop-and-run single to point. His 13th against Australia, and his 84th overall

30.4

Cummins to Kallis, 1 run, driven on the up through cover point, threading the fielders inside the circle - but there's a man out in the deep

South Africa 135/2   JH Kallis 51* (64b 3x4 2x6)

31.1

Doherty to Kallis, no run, pushed into the off side

31.2

Doherty to Kallis, no run, not quite so full this time, Kallis can't find a gap in the off side

31.3

Doherty to Kallis, 1 run, he's squared up by a hint of turn but is good enough to adjust with soft hands and drop the ball towards short third man

South Africa 136/2   JH Kallis 52* (67b 3x4 2x6)

32.1

Watson to Kallis, no run, starts with a big appeal for lbw and they go for a review after it's given not out. Was full and appeared to be trapped by Kallis between bat and pad and HotSpot shows that it was inside edge first

32.2

Watson to Kallis, no run, worked from middle stump down to mid-on

32.3

Watson to Kallis, 1 leg bye, angled towards leg stump and tucked to square leg

32.6

South Africa 139/2   JH Kallis 53* (71b 3x4 2x6)

33.1

Doherty to Kallis, 1 run, he's bowled very well and this again turns to take the outside edge towards short third man but Kallis played with soft hands

33.3

Doherty to Kallis, no run, slightly quicker and Kallis defends to the off side

33.4

Doherty to Kallis, OUT, gone! Reward for Doherty and Australia. Kallis tries to break the shackles with a sweep and, like Smith, gets a top edge which, unlike Smith, goes high in the air before being well taken by Marsh inches from the deep square boundary

JH Kallis c Marsh b Doherty 54 (80m 74b 3x4 2x6) SR: 72.97

South Africa 141/3   JH Kallis 54 (74b 3x4 2x6)
