3.1

Sreesanth to Smith, 1 run, short in length and bounces outside off, Smith hangs on the back foot and punches it to left of gully where a half-stop is made

3.2

Sreesanth to Petersen, no run, Good delivery that beats the bat and goes of the thigh pad and falls short of third slip. Fine delivery this. It landed on the good length around off stump, the seam facing towards the first slip as it went across in the air, and it curved away from Alviro who pushed inside the line - was squared-up a touch- and it went off the thigh pad

3.3

5.1

Sreesanth to Smith, no run, gets back and across to cover the off stump and allows Dhoni to take this one

5.4

Sreesanth to Petersen, no run, this one jumps from a length, Petersen was looking to defend when he was surprised by the bounce but adjusted nicely by taking out the bottom--hand off the handle and tapped the ball towards point

5.5

Sreesanth to Petersen, no run, And this one tails down the leg side.. Petersen has a tendency to shuffle and when he plays the shot to the leg side, often you can see the leg stump. And Sreesanth brought this one back in but it goes down leg

5.6

Sreesanth to Petersen, no run, The teaser is here! It was full, it was well outside off and Petersen went for another booming off drive. But the ball swung away appreciably and rushed past the outside edge... oohs and aahs from the close-in fielders.

South Africa 19/1   S Sreesanth 4-0-14-0

18.1

Sreesanth to Kallis, no run, lovely shape to begin the spell, full and outside off and it swerves away from Kallis who has a good look at it and leaves

18.2

Sreesanth to Kallis, FOUR, Majestic from Kallis! Sree continues to search for seam movement, presents the upright seam on a length and gets it to go away, but Kallis is in position in a flash. He goes back and across, presses forward and smacks it with the full face through the covers. That's bulleted through the covers

18.3

Sreesanth to Kallis, no run, targets the off stump this time, not much movement and very full. Kallis defends resolutely to the off side

18.4

Sreesanth to Kallis, no run, a very good leave to a very good ball. Sree lands it on a length again outside off in the McGrath region of doubt and gets it to move away.

20.4

Sreesanth to Amla, 1 run, attacks the stumps with a full delivery and Amla gets a thick inside edge as he falls across, attemting to play a whip to the on side. Single to long leg

20.6

Sreesanth to Kallis, no run, full, but straying down the leg side for sure as Kallis gets hit on the pads. Half shout erupts, but dies down quickly

24.1

24.2

Sreesanth to Amla, no run, classic shape from Sree, homes in on a full length around off stump and gets that curve away again, but this time Amla covers it well and defends to the off side

24.3

Sreesanth to Amla, 2 runs, slants this one into the body and Amla tucks it away off the backfoot through midwicket

24.4

Sreesanth to Amla, FOUR, that shot is a crash-course in the art of cover driving. Sree lands this on the driving length outside off, and despite the away swing, Amla's feet were in place for the shot early. But there was a packed cover cordon to be eluded. What does Amla do? Instead of driving through the line, he opens the face and with a late flourish of the wrists guides it squarer between cover and point. Classy.

24.5

Sreesanth to Amla, no run, Sree responds with a loopy bouncer angling down the leg side. Amla thinks of going through with the pull before pulling out.

24.6

Sreesanth to Amla, FOUR, part two in the crash-course. Another over-pitched offerinf from Sree, this time on middle and over and curving away. Amla reaches across, but doesn't overdo the forward and across movement. He stays beside the line and opens the face to drill it through the covers. More textbook, just as awesome to watch.

South Africa 88/2   S Sreesanth 8-0-34-0

26.1

Sreesanth to Amla, no run, a very tardy bouncer from Sree to begin his over, banged very short and going well down the leg side. Easy leave for Amla

26.2

Sreesanth to Amla, SIX, "Catch it!" is the yell from the bowler, but Amla has slammed Sree over the boundary to bring up a fluent half-century. Short ball, got Amla into the pull and Sree reckoned it was top-edged and that Zaheer at fine leg was in business. He ran across to his left only to see it sail over, backward of square leg. There was another fielder squarer for the shot, but he's bisected them perfectly

26.3

Sreesanth to Amla, 2 runs, a leading edge this time, but things are going SA's way now. Sree opens up Amla whose drive runs off the edge behind point for a couple more

26.4

Sreesanth to Amla, no run, another bouncer going down the leg, another duck from Amla

26.5

Sreesanth to Amla, FOUR, edged and just wide of Laxman at second slip. Sree gets the away movement going, very subtle and god enough to get the outside edge as Amla drives without moving forward and across. But the edge flies through safe.

26.6

Sreesanth to Amla, 1 run, finishes with another completely-in-control pull as Sree bangs it in. Straight to deep square leg this time for one, but that shot was loaded with intent. India need to start afresh here.

28.1

Sreesanth to Kallis, 1 run, too short this time, Kallis is in position early and cuts it away square for a single to the sweeper

28.3

Sreesanth to Amla, OUT, Amla has played one shot too many and Sree has struck with the short ball. We have had a few comments, asking whether Amla thought this was the Twenty20 match for which he's been picked.. Well, he was in T20 mode since the rain resumption, wasn't he? Sree gets this bouncer to end on off and middle, which meant Amla had to pull it all the way across. He went for the challenge, and tried to clear the two men in the deep, but this was onto him faster than he'd have though. The top-edge loops up and lands in deep midwicket's hands. India have a big wicket here. Sree gives him a bit of a send-off

Sreesanth to Morkel, FOUR, almost caught by Pujara at third man. It was the short delivery outside off and Morne went for the cut but it flew of the top edge to third man. Pujara rushed across to his right and dived but couldn't hold on to a very tough chance. Dean Jones might have got to it.

87.6

Sreesanth to Morkel, OUT, Five-for for Sreesanth! Morne tries to heave a length delivery outside off out of the ground but only manages to get a thick edge to Dhoni. Sreesanth is pumped up before he calms down by pressing his palms together to give a namaskar pose .. as he looks up to the skies and mutters a small prayer. or so it looks.

104.2

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.
