View dismissal TM Dilshan c Morkel b Steyn 106 116 92 16 1 115.21
29.1 Another bowling change works! Terrible delivery but Steyn won't mind that one bit, bangs it in really short and wide outside off, Dilshan goes for the bait and upper cuts it straight to Morkel at third man, poor shot from the batsman but he's done his bit and the crowd will be disappointed to see him depart 181/3
View dismissal ST Jayasuriya lbw b Steyn 10 11 9 2 0 111.11
2.2 first blood to Steyn, looked quite straightforward, lands on middle and leg just short of a good length, the ball doesn't bounce as much and holds its line before thudding onto the pads, Jayasuriya tries to hit across the line but the ball skids and hits him plumb in front 16/1
View dismissal KC Sangakkara*† c & b Duminy 54 99 74 5 0 72.97
27.6 the bowling change does the trick! Comes round the wicket, Sangakkara is a little too early on the shot, he lobs a full delivery tamely back to Duminy, Sanga flings his bat away in frustration 174/2
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene c Duminy b Parnell 77 92 61 8 1 126.22
46.3 fires it on a fullish length on middle and off, Mahela makes a bit of room to deposit it over cover but he doesn't get the timing right and Duminy runs to his left at extra cover and takes the catch 297/4
View dismissal TT Samaraweera c van der Merwe b Parnell 37 87 47 1 0 78.72
46.4 he's on a hat-trick! Samaraweera goes across his stumps and tries to whip him over square leg but he gets a leading edge which swirls in the air for quite a few agonising seconds, van der Merwe sprints from third man and judges the catch well 297/5
View dismissal AD Mathews b Steyn 15 18 14 0 0 107.14
49.6 Mathews makes room to squeeze out a yorker but the ball screeches through and pegs back the leg stump 319/8
View dismissal SHT Kandamby c Duminy b Parnell 6 12 5 1 0 120.00
48.6 catching practice, Parnell pitches it up on middle and leg and Kandamby flicks his wrists and clips it straight to Duminy at midwicket, didn't get the required elevation 314/6
View dismissal KMDN Kulasekara run out (van der Merwe/Steyn) 1 4 1 0 0 100.00
49.4 Steyn to Mathews, makes room and slaps it down to long-on, the ball reaches van der Merwe on the first bounce and he hurls the throw back to Steyn who whips off the bails, Kulasekara dives in vain and the 3rd umpire takes a look 317/7
