  West Indies 1st innings R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal CH Gayle* c Kallis b Harris 66 83 49 13 0 134.69
17.2 and Harris hits back, and how! Harris tossed it up nicely outside off stump, Gayle came forward once again and drove, this time he had to reach out for it a little bit more and got a thick edge to Kallis at first slip, two massive wickets within the space of three balls 102/2
View dismissal D Ganga c †Boucher b Nel 33 79 57 4 0 57.89
16.6 South Africa have the breakthrough! Ganga had done an excellent job of leaving the wide ones alone, until now that is. He drove loosely away from his body at one that wasn't full enough to drive and got a thick edge through to Boucher who took an easy catch, relieved celebrations from the South Africans 98/1
View dismissal RS Morton c Prince b Ntini 33 108 71 7 0 46.47
41.3 caught! Morton gets on to the front foot a bit too early and tries to defend, the length is just a little bit short on off stump, the ball bounces a bit more and hits the outside edge high on the bat, it lobs up tamely to Prince at point who takes one of the easiest catches you can hope to get 166/3
View dismissal MN Samuels c Kallis b Steyn 94 267 195 12 0 48.20
80.5 that is a stunning catch from Kallis! Samuels sees one full and wide and went after it, the ball swung away from Samuels and got the thick outside edge of his expansive drive, the ball flew at rapid speed towards Kallis at second slip who took the catch over his head to the left and staggered backwards because of the momentum of the ball, and it wasn't a no ball this time, Steyn has his first wicket 277/4
View dismissal S Chanderpaul b Nel 104 394 253 12 0 41.10
133.1 he's bowled him! And against the run of play! Nel angles the ball into the left-hander from round the wicket, the ball pitches on a good length around off stump, Chanderpaul gets drawn forward and defends down the wrong line, the ball straightens just enough to beat the bat and clip the top of off stump, outstanding ball, very similar to the one with which Zaheer bowled Ponting in Melbourne yesterday 407/9
View dismissal DJ Bravo c & b Ntini 12 47 36 2 0 33.33
91.1 caught after a collision! Bravo tried to close the face of the bat to a good length ball that was angling into him from outside off stump, he was a bit early on the one-legged flick and the leading edge went high in the air on the off side, Ntini went for the catch and so did Gibbs from gully, in the end Ntini caught it and bumped into Gibbs, who fell down, soon after, it could have easily been spilled but all's well that ends well for South Africa 296/5
View dismissal D Ramdin c †Boucher b Ntini 1 12 10 0 0 10.00
93.4 that's pretty unplayable and Ramdin gets an edge that's snapped up by Boucher, Ntini went wide of the crease once again and angled the ball into Ramdin, it pitched around off stump and straightened squaring Ramdin up, the ball kissed the outside edge of his back-foot defence and South Africa have their second wicket of the morning 304/6
View dismissal DJG Sammy run out (de Villiers) 38 93 77 3 0 49.35
115.1 Ntini to Chanderpaul, Chanderpaul drops the ball with soft hands towards cover and calls for the quick single, de Villiers sprints in from cover, picks up the ball and throws down the stumps with a full length dive, he takes out the stumps with his body afterwards during his slide, it's a tight decision for the third umpire to make, Sammy's bat was just on the line but it's unclear whether the bail was off or not before the bat slid inside the crease, but Rudi Koertzen's hit the out button and Sammy has to go 361/7
View dismissal JE Taylor b Steyn 9 46 37 1 0 24.32
125.4 and he's made me take that back! That's the delivery he's been looking for all day. It's a full, fast yorker which angles into Taylor before swinging away and uprooting the off stump, the stump goes for a walk and Steyn loves it 385/8
DBL Powell not out 1 38 17 0 0 5.88
View dismissal FH Edwards c Prince b Nel 0 4 4 0 0 0.00
133.4 he's out this time, Nel bowls a short of a length delivery whch rises sharply on Edwards who fends at it and gets an outside edge to gully where Prince takes an easy catch 408/10

View dismissal GC Smith* lbw b Taylor 28 44 31 4 0 90.32
8.5 that's plumb! Taylor bowls a full ball but it's not quite a yorker, the ball swings into Smith who tries to close the face of his bat but misses, it hits him low on the front pad and umpire Tiffin raises his finger after a long hard look, that would have hit middle stump 45/2
View dismissal HH Gibbs c †Ramdin b Powell 0 4 4 0 0 0.00

10.5 splendid catch! Kallis begins to fend at one outside off stump but decides to pull his bat out of the way at the last minute, it's a little too late for that and the ball hits the face of the bat and flies towards Bravo's right at third slip, he dives full length to his right and take the catch with both hands, outstanding effort which gives West Indies a massive wicket 53/3

View dismissal AB de Villiers b Bravo 59 193 127 9 0 46.45
54.5 oh what a ball, he's castled him! de Villiers doesn't expect a delivery like that, as the ball pitches, straightens, and does enough to completely steamroll his off stump as he plays forward and misses all ends up 172/7
View dismissal MV Boucher c Powell b Taylor 20 50 29 3 0 68.96
36.4 oh well caught, Powell! Boucher didn't face a lot this morning but decides to pull a short one, that hurries onto him, without much footwork and the resultant top-edge balloons wide of Ramdin and down towards fine leg, where Powell runs in from the ropes and dives forward to hold a very good catch, giving West Indies an early breakthrough 129/6
View dismissal PL Harris c Taylor b Bravo 9 100 68 0 0 13.23

View dismissal D Ganga run out (Gibbs) 45 184 125 6 0 36.00
41.2 from Harris, oh thats silly! Its a shorter one spinning away from off stump, Ganga gets back and runs it wide of Gibbs at point, there's a stutter but eventually he responds to Samuels' call and is caught half an inch short of his crease as a superb direct hit makes fatal contact! Thats some fielding from Gibbs, but not good on the part of the batsmen, who took a call on one of the best in the business 122/3
View dismissal RS Morton lbw b Kallis 5 36 24 1 0 20.83
14.1 and he strikes first ball! Kallis pitches on a length on off stump and gets it to seam back in ever so slightly, catching Morton pushing half-cock forward from the crease, there's pad and then bat as they all go up in appeal and the umpire gives it in the bowler's favour ... looked pretty out from here, as Morton failed to get a firm stride in 57/2

50.5 thats out! Steyn digs it in short and a surprised Ramdin can only fend it to Gibbs at gully, who gleefully accepts the easiest of offerings, that ball simply gained on Ramdin's throat and he was in no position to get over and keep it down 144/8
