98.6

Sharma to Tsotsobe, no run, This one is a bouncer and Tsotsobe just about manages to get his gloves and bat out of the way. The ball flew past the gloves.

South Africa 312/9   LL Tsotsobe 1* (4b)

100.1

100.4

Sharma to Tsotsobe, no run, from over the wicket now, but another harmless sailing through outside off

100.5

100.6

Sharma to Tsotsobe, no run, kicks up from short of length and rushes past the outside edge. Over to Kallis now.

South Africa 335/9   LL Tsotsobe 3* (13b)

104.6

Sreesanth to Tsotsobe, no run, full and outside Tsotso's off stump, he doesn't get in line and fishes as it whizzes past. Half-hearted appeal, rightly turned down

South Africa 341/9   LL Tsotsobe 3* (14b)

106.1

Sreesanth to Tsotsobe, 1 run, Tsotso gets off the strike immediately, the Newlands crowd loves it! Pushes a length ball on off stump into the covers and they are off

South Africa 342/9   LL Tsotsobe 4* (15b)

107.1

Harbhajan Singh to Tsotsobe, 1 run, Newlands erupts as Tsotso picks another single off the first ball. What's worse, Tendulkar has fumbled to let it happen! Tsotso chips out, gets to the pitch and drives feebly towards midwicket. Tendulkar could have denied the single if he had collected cleanly. He did not.

107.5

Harbhajan Singh to Tsotsobe, no run, sharp spin from outside off, no problem for Tsotso who gets across and defends to the off side

107.6

Harbhajan Singh to Tsotsobe, no run, big turn again for Harbhajan, so much spin that it beats the forward prod and balloons off the pad towards the slips. No bat on that.

South Africa 352/9   LL Tsotsobe 5* (18b)

109.1

Harbhajan Singh to Tsotsobe, no run, straighter one from Harbhajan, but dropped short enough for Tsotso to spot the deviation and defend to the off side

109.2

Harbhajan Singh to Tsotsobe, no run, he skips out this time and gets to the pitch, and works it with the spin to midwicket. Tendulkar has a shy at the stumps and misses as Kallis was thinking of a single

109.3

Harbhajan Singh to Tsotsobe, 1 run, edged past Laxman at second slip. India are bleeding. Kallis gets strike. The field is spread out

109.6

Harbhajan Singh to Tsotsobe, no run, and none of them matter. Tsotso gets a good stride across and smothers the offie as it turns in. Safe and sound.

South Africa 358/9   LL Tsotsobe 6* (22b)

110.2

Khan to Tsotsobe, no run, short ball, angling across Tsotso who defends it well off the front foot. Plays it on top of the bounce and softly into the off side

110.3

Khan to Tsotsobe, no run, he's kept out the short ball, he's kept out the full one. Zaheer is looking for the blockhole with a full ball outside off, Tsotso reaches out and defends to the off side

110.4

Khan to Tsotsobe, no run, more accomplished defence from Tsotso. Short ball angling in, in line with off stump. Tsotso rides the bounce and drops it to the off side

110.5

Khan to Tsotsobe, no run, full ball again, not fast enough to trouble Tsotso who gets on the front foot and punches it back down the track

110.6

Khan to Tsotsobe, 2 runs, take that. Tsotso has driven Zaheer down the ground with the lack of timing perfected by tail-enders and picks up two, as you only can when mid-off is standing too close to stop it.

South Africa 361/9   LL Tsotsobe 8* (27b)

111.6

Harbhajan Singh to Tsotsobe, no run, Tsotso leaps out of the crease and nurdles Harbhajan with the spin towards deep square leg. His turn to refuse a single! Kallis on strike for the next over.
