Steyn to Rogers, OUT, and the mighty Dale is back. Rogers plays a loose shot, driving in front of his body, the ball pitching well short of a driving length. It might even have held its line a touch outside off. A healthy edge is taken, and Smith takes a sharp catch at first slip

CJL Rogers c Smith b Steyn 25 (57m 41b 4x4 0x6) SR: 60.97

Australia 65/1   DA Warner 40* (40b 5x4)   DW Steyn 2.3-0-19-1

Philander to Doolan, OUT, lazy pull, and Doolan is gone. Doolan's weight transfer onto either foot hasn't been great, and when you go to pull with your weight only half-back you cannot afford to pick balls that are not short enough. This one isn't short enough, and takes the top edge to wide mid-on where Steyn takes the catch

AJ Doolan c Steyn b Philander 20 (83m 66b 3x4 0x6) SR: 30.30

Australia 138/2   DA Warner 88* (82b 9x4)   VD Philander 8.3-0-32-1

Duminy to Warner, OUT, Duminy gets a wicket again. He has been breaking partnerships all through the last fortnight A nice little offbreak, which pitches just outside off, turns away, takes the edge from the Warner push, and AB nearly drops it. Luckily for him, it hits the thigh softly, and he gets a second grab at it. And he takes it. Warner is not sure he has edged it, thinks of a review, but Clarke tells him not to. What a lovely innings this has been, and is given a fitting ovation by the full house. There was a puff of dust as the ball turned away

DA Warner c †de Villiers b Duminy 135 (262m 152b 12x4 1x6) SR: 88.81

Australia 217/3   MJ Clarke 29* (90b 3x4)   JP Duminy 3.4-0-14-1

Elgar to Smith, OUT, oh played on. Smith misses out on a ton, and this is one of the filthiest balls that will get you a Test wicket. A long hop, a wide one at that, but it stays low, doesn't quite come on, and takes the bottom edge onto the stumps

SPD Smith b Elgar 84 (214m 155b 9x4 3x6) SR: 54.19

Australia 401/4   MJ Clarke 125* (239b 14x4)   D Elgar 18.5-0-78-1

Duminy to Watson, OUT, Watson's whacking is over. No it is not. This is a no-ball, I think. Or maybe not. They are still checking it. He is given. Watson tries to go over long-off, mis-hits it, is caught at long-off. Replays show Duminy might have just that smidgeon behind the line

SR Watson c Amla b Duminy 40 (50m 32b 2x4 3x6) SR: 125.00

Australia 456/5   MJ Clarke 140* (272b 15x4)   JP Duminy 12.4-0-59-2

Duminy to Haddin, OUT, he is caught by Amla's arm pit. Haddin wants to clear mid-off, but has got too close to the ball, hitting it flat towards mid-off. Amla fumbles it, but the ball is stuck in his armpit. First stand of less than 50

BJ Haddin c Amla b Duminy 13 (33m 21b 2x4 0x6) SR: 61.90

Australia 489/6   MJ Clarke 160* (300b 17x4)   JP Duminy 16.5-0-73-3

Duminy to Johnson, OUT, wide down leg, they ask for a stumping. He is actually asking for a catch down leg, and they have reviewed it. This is down leg, Johnson looks to flick it, seems he has missed it, but Duminy is adamant they review this. Smith is not on the field, but AB listens to Duminy and goes for it. There is a smidgeon on the inside edge as the ball passes the bat. There is a register on the snicko too. And he is gone. Duminy on a hat-trick

MG Johnson c †de Villiers b Duminy 0 (4m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Australia 489/7   MJ Clarke 160* (300b 17x4)   JP Duminy 17-0-73-4
