104.5

Sreesanth to Kallis, 1 run, well, Sree continues to out-bounce Kallis, who nearly miscues one to Gambhir at midwicket close in. That was not timed at all and popped up to the left of a tumbling Gambhir who could not snaffle it. The single is taken

105.1

106.5

Sreesanth to Kallis, FOUR, Kallis, take a bow! The field comes in for the last couple of balls. What does Kallis do? He flexes his muscles and powers a length ball just outside off through cover-point. Despatched with disdain, this is driving India mad.

106.6

Sreesanth to Kallis, FOUR, Boy, Kallis is unstoppable! He doesn't try to take a single off the last ball. There are three men close in on the off side looking to deny that. Kallis again opens up the off side and smashes it through all of them, who had barely completed their walk-in as it whistled past them and through to the boundary. The force is with South Africa. 350 up.

South Africa 350/9   JH Kallis 153* (269b 18x4)

108.4

Khan to Kallis, no run, booming off drive from Kallis, pitched up and he drilled it with the high elbow and admired his own shot. Can't believe you can play such a good shot for no runs - there was long off and he did not want the single

108.5

Khan to Kallis, no run, Zak beats him again outside off with another one that moves away after slanting across. Extra bounce as well, and Kallis was left hanging his bat out in hope. It whizzed past the outside edge

108.6

Khan to Kallis, FOUR, you can set any field you want to Kallis. Right now, it does not matter. He's batting with a side strain. With No. 11. With the field back. Against one of the best fast bowlers in the game now. And he toys with him. Short ball yes, but there is an army of fielders on the leg side boundary to save the pull. Kallis finds a way to elude all of them, essaying the shot a little late to get it square of midwicket, but in front of square leg. A joy to watch.

112.5

Khan to Kallis, OUT, the agony ends for India. They have finally managed to find a way past Kallis. It must be said, it was more a case of Kallis losing his wicket, in an attempt to manufacture a single out of somewhere. End of a really special innings. That was back of a length, close to off stump and was going away from Kallis, who shaped to cut it fine. He got a thin edge through to Dhoni. Kallis has done his job - the last two wickets have added 79 and South Africa are on top now.
