16,17,18,19,20 December 2010 (5-day match)
  India 1st innings R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal G Gambhir c Harris b Morkel 5 62 43 0 0 11.62
12.6 89.2 mph, Morne has consumed Gambhir after working him over with an attacking spell. I daresay, he deserved this scalp. As is often the case with the bouncer-barrage, the wicket eventually comes to the sucker ball that is landed full. This one was on off stump, Gambhir was years late in coming forward. The body position for the drive was awry, the body momentum was going nowhere. The outside edge went straight into the lap of first slip. 24/2
View dismissal V Sehwag c Amla b Steyn 0 9 3 0 0 0.00
2.1 83.9 mph, Steyn 1, Sehwag 0! Sehwag left the first two go in the first over. Can't hold back this time. Gets one on a length, landing outside off and moving away a touch. He tries to go up and over with the upper cut. Hashim Amla was lurking at third man, not all the way back to the boundary. He was there specifically for this shot. Sehwag was not entirely to the pitch of it, and ended up scooping it in the air. Amla snaffles it. SA have struck a huge blow. 1/1
View dismissal R Dravid lbw b Morkel 14 61 42 2 0 33.33
14.4 90.4 mph, Morne has struck a huge blow. Dravid has fallen to his first error of the day, and by the looks of it, he wasn't very lucky with the bounce. Sharp inwards movement from Morne, lands on and around off stump and curls into Dravid who is caught on the stumps and struck in front of middle and leg as it stays lower than he expected. That looked plumb, but it was just shaving the top of middle. Morne goes down in celebration. He knows he's got the big fish. 27/3
View dismissal SR Tendulkar lbw b Steyn 36 61 34 8 0 105.88
24.4 92.7 mph, and India's last specialist batsman goes! Steyn it is who gets the big one, raps SRT on the pads with a length delivery that straightens a bit, and catches him on the pads even as he plays across the line, that was hitting middle and the finger goes up straightaway, India are 29 short of the 100-run mark 71/6
View dismissal VVS Laxman b Steyn 7 36 20 1 0 35.00
22.2 90.3 mph, got 'em! Steyn has gone right through Laxman, and the middle stump is knocked out of the ground, VVS played way across the line, looking to work it through midwicket, it was straight as an arrow, beat the wristy waft, and crashed into the timber, Steyn is on fire, so are South Africa 66/4
View dismissal SK Raina c Prince b Kallis 1 5 3 0 0 33.33
23.1 86.4 mph, and Raina falls third ball! not the short ball, but the length delivery going across him does the trick, he stood in the crease and guided it straight into the hands of third slip, India are in complete disarray, Kallis gets one now 67/5
View dismissal MS Dhoni*† lbw b Morkel 33 87 50 2 2 66.00
38.4 hit on the pad and Dhoni's lbw! Morkel picks up his fifth. The ball was fuller again and angled into the right-hander. Dhoni might have wanted to come forward to that but he didn't and was caught on the crease. Umpire Ian Gould made a quick decision but Dhoni was almost ready to walk before the finger went up 136/10
View dismissal Harbhajan Singh run out (Petersen/†Boucher) 27 40 25 4 1 108.00
32.2 Morkel to Dhoni, what do we have here? Harbhajan was slow to turn for the second as Dhoni pushed through cover, he had almost made it, but the bat came out of his hand, and Boucher underarmed the throw onto the stumps, replays show Harbhajan, minus his bat was just short of the crease, and India have added suicide to their mode of dismissal in Centurion 110/7
View dismissal I Sharma c Kallis b Morkel 0 2 2 0 0 0.00
32.3 90.3 mph, another one goes! Morkle gets the outside edge as Ishant hops to a short of a good length delivery that gets big on him, it flies to that man Kallis at second slip who juggles it for an instant, before holding it cleanly close to his chest 110/8
View dismissal S Sreesanth c Steyn b Morkel 0 12 8 0 0 0.00
34.5 88.7 mph, stays in the crease and drives crisply in the air, but straight to short extra cover, who was the only man in front of the stumps, apart from the bowler, and he gleefully accepts the early Christmas gift, India are nine down 116/9

View dismissal GC Smith* c †Dhoni b Harbhajan Singh 62 133 87 11 0 71.26
26.3 55.6 mph, caught! India have struck on the stroke of lunch and it's out of the blue. The ball was similar to the previous one, Harbhajan drifted it into the left-hander, pitched around off and got the ball to bounce considerably. Smith attempted to cut this one and Dhoni held the edge. Finally India have some respite. 111/1
View dismissal AN Petersen c Gambhir b Harbhajan Singh 77 191 114 9 1 67.54
40.1 52.6 mph, Bhajji gets one more! it was flighted on middle and leg, he got half-forward to defend, got an inside edge on to pad, the ball went in the air for Gambhir at forward short leg to take the simplest of catches, Alviro walks off without waiting for the umpire's decision 166/2
View dismissal HM Amla c †Dhoni b Sharma 140 296 202 14 1 69.30
92.3 82.3 mph, that's out! Lucky man is Ishant, full and way down the leg side, Amla looked to flick it fine, got a touch but not wide enough to evade Dhoni, caught down the leg side, the opening India needed on the third day 396/3

View dismissal AB de Villiers c †Dhoni b Sharma 129 149 112 12 5 115.17
130.1 86.6 mph, AB is gone. Smith has declared. All the boxes have been ticked. India face a mountain. Make that two. How he got out is purely academic. For the record - it was a back of length ball on off. Not the kind of ball you can hit for six. Given his form, AB believed he could. He ended up playing a nothing-swipe. The outside edge landed in Dhoni's gloves. No one celebrated. Smith called them in. Sehwag and Gambhir have a nervy ten minutes ahead of them, as a prelude to the nervy two-and-a-half days ahead of the world's No. 1 team. 620/4

View dismissal G Gambhir lbw b Steyn 80 187 124 10 0 64.51
39.2 82.0 mph, Gambhir is gone and he will be gutted by this. Steyn angles one in from round the wicket, from outside off, but it was the bounce that did Gambhir in. It kept a touch low as he looked to play from the crease. It missed the bat and thudded into the pads. That was plumb. As Sid Monga once said, he wouldn't have been plumber if he worked with pipes and taps. 170/2
View dismissal V Sehwag c Smith b Harris 63 141 79 9 1 79.74
29.3 52.0 mph, Sehwag has thrown it away. You sensed he was going to go after Harris at some point. This was was asking to be hit. Tossed up nice and wide outside off, Sehwag danced down, but could not get to the line of the ball. Hence, he ended up scooping instead of lofting cleanly. Smith runs back and to the left from widish mid off to take a well-judged catch. Big wicket. 137/1
View dismissal R Dravid c †Boucher b Morkel 43 159 109 6 0 39.44
64.5 88.8 mph, gone! Morkel strikes. Did that nip away? Landed on a good lengh just outside off, Dravid played at it, got a faint edge straight through to Boucher, the hint of movement may have just done him in. South Africa go past a major barrier in their quest to bowl India out here 242/4
View dismissal I Sharma c Amla b Steyn 23 69 51 4 0 45.09
54.4 87.8 mph, got him! The short square leg into action immediately, Amla the fielder there, on middle and leg, Ishant gets across and tries to work it square, uppish again and the ever-sharp Amla makes no mistake, grabbing it to his left 214/3
