Siddle to Petersen, OUT, once again offering no shot, this time the line is a bit straighter and he is hit right on off-stump, no shot offered so even if that had hit outside off, the umpire had full rights to send him packing, which is exactly what he did.

Johnson to Behardien, OUT, carbon-copy of Elgar's dismissal, might have pitched on the line of leg-stump, but seemed quite close from up here in line with the pitch, but the umpire says it's gone. Well bowled by Johnson beating Behardien with pace and swing.
