  • Overs 1-50

Johnson to Smith, OUT, Johnson is ecstatic as Smith edges to second slip. He landed the ball short of a length just outside off stump and got it to straighten after pitching, Smith played for the angle into him and pushed forward at it, giving Clarke a simple catch

GC Smith c Clarke b Johnson 11 (31m 18b 2x4 0x6) SR: 61.11

South Africa 24/1   JA Rudolph 12* (23b 2x4)   MG Johnson 3.4-1-18-1

Watson to Rudolph, OUT, caught behind! Watson pitches just short of a length around off stump and slants the ball across the left-hander, Rudolph stays on his crease and pushes tentatively, he gets an edge through to Haddin. A soft way to go after playing some fabulous shots full of intent

JA Rudolph c †Haddin b Watson 30 (71m 50b 4x4 0x6) SR: 60.00

South Africa 43/2   HM Amla 1* (21b)   SR Watson 1.4-1-0-1

Siddle to Kallis, OUT, caught at midwicket! Kallis flicks a length ball off his pads straight to Khawaja at midwicket, who had to jump as the ball lobbed towards him. Kallis takes a look at the pitch after the dismissal, I think that ball stopped on him a little. Siddle is pumped and gives him a small send-off

JH Kallis c Khawaja b Siddle 54 (64m 41b 8x4 2x6) SR: 131.70

South Africa 123/3   HM Amla 19* (65b 3x4)   PM Siddle 5.5-2-31-1

Cummins to Amla, OUT, there's his first Test wicket! Cummins bowls a fullish ball outside off stump, Amla tries to play a powerful drive through cover. He reached out for it without really moving his feet and went hard at the ball. The outside edge flew rapidly to Ponting at second slip, he caught it at head height. Sharp catch. Cummins has been rewarded for a fine effort on debut

HM Amla c Ponting b Cummins 19 (117m 70b 3x4 0x6) SR: 27.14

South Africa 129/4   AB de Villiers 5* (9b 1x4)   PJ Cummins 11.1-2-20-1

Lyon to Prince, OUT, caught at mid-on! Prince has looked edgy for a while, ever since tea, and after several edges through slip against Siddle, he finally holes out at mid-on. He came out of his crease to loft the ball down the ground, he didn't get under it and so he couldn't find the elevation to clear Johnson.

AG Prince c Johnson b Lyon 50 (119m 89b 9x4 0x6) SR: 56.17

South Africa 241/5   AB de Villiers 63* (93b 11x4)   NM Lyon 8-1-37-1

Siddle to de Villiers, OUT, Cummins has taken a sensational catch! AB tried to pull a short of a length delivery from around of stump, the ball bounced a bit more and he ended up slicing it in the air over the bowler's head. The catch was closer to Johnson at mid-on, but Cummins tore towards it from mid-off and dived full length to take it as the ball fell over his head

AB de Villiers c Cummins b Siddle 64 (137m 97b 11x4 0x6) SR: 65.97

South Africa 243/6   MV Boucher 1* (1b)   PM Siddle 13.5-4-67-2

Lyon to Philander, OUT, lbw! Philander moves back and towards the off side to play across the line towards square leg, Lyon pitches the ball outside off and angles it into the right-hander. Philander misses the ball and gets hit plumb in front

VD Philander lbw b Lyon 0 (5m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

South Africa 243/7   MV Boucher 1* (2b)   NM Lyon 8.5-1-37-2

Siddle to Boucher, OUT, another one falls, to another silly shot. Boucher tries to pull a short ball but gets a top edge that goes towards long leg, Haddin begins to run after the ball but realises he won't get there. Lyon comes running in from the boundary to take the catch

MV Boucher c Lyon b Siddle 3 (15m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 42.85

South Africa 245/8   DW Steyn 0* (1b)   PM Siddle 14.5-4-69-3

Clarke to Morkel, OUT, edged to first slip and Watson's caught it! Clarke goes round the wicket and angles the ball across the left-hander, Morkel pushes forward and away from his body and gets a gentler edge to Watson

M Morkel c Watson b Clarke 6 (18m 14b 1x4 0x6) SR: 42.85

South Africa 258/9   DW Steyn 7* (20b 1x4)   MJ Clarke 2.2-0-5-1

Clarke to Imran Tahir, OUT, it's over. Tahir couldn't survive the last ball and is caught at bat pad. He lunged forward to defend and got an inside edge on to the front pad, Hughes dived forward and took a low catch at short leg

Imran Tahir c Hughes b Clarke 0 (8m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

South Africa 266/10   DW Steyn 15* (31b 1x4 1x6)   MJ Clarke 4-1-6-2
