End of over 74 (4 runs) South Africa 232/4
JH Kallis    81* (169b 6x4)      I Sharma    16-2-39-1
AG Prince    28* (69b 3x4)      S Sreesanth    21-0-70-2

9.40 am Welcome to the second day of the decider. It's bright and sunny out there in Cape Town. Play to start at 10.00 am. Sreesanth just had a televised chat with Ravi Shastri. He talked about striving for consistency and making the batsmen play. His last two spells yesterday were really good. Shastri asked him about his relationship with the Cape Town crowd and Sreesanth said: "Oh yeah it was nice. They kept saying, 'you are not good enough; you are not going to take wickets' and I said I will. And when I did pick up a wicket, they appreciated the effort!"

AB de Villiers: "The ball moved around quite a bit early on. We knew if we can get through the new ball with minimum damage, we can always cash in later on. Thats what we did. we got a quite a few partnerships. It was taking one ball at a time. I thought I batted really well for the 70-odd balls that I faced and one ball i lost concentration i got out. So its the pitch that you have to keep focusing on. When we get to bowl, I think there will be something there in the condtions. The ball will swing and it will be good for Steyn and co.

"India were less aggressive yesterday; its a big pressure Test .. the bowlers are concentrating on getting their basics right. May be that's why they weren't probably that aggressive as in the last Test match."

AG Prince    44* (90b 6x4)      Z Khan    20-5-62-1

TJ Ramadoss: "The most important factor that seperates Kallis from his contemporary great batsmen is his all round ability. Even if he chooses to give up his bowling when he turns 37, he can carry around batting till he is 40."

AG Prince    45* (95b 6x4)      I Sharma    20-4-52-1

Anirudh: "Where is Sreesanth? He was by far the best bowler yesterday. Why does Dhoni persist with Ishant - the weakest bowler in the Indian attack?" Well Sreesanth is about to bowl.

83.1

Sreesanth to Prince, no run, full in length, gentle pace, on the pads, rolls away to square-leg

83.2

Sreesanth to Prince, 2 runs, full again, on the middle stump line, hint of swing, worked to the right of square-leg fielder and he will get two runs. He is on 47

Sreesanth to Prince, no run, on the same line - middle and leg, pushed to the on side.

83.4

Sreesanth to Prince, no run, lovely delivery, seaming away late from the good length, Prince was hesitantly forward- he landed on his front heel and was out of balance, when he prodded at that. THe ball clipped the inner edge and fell on his pad

83.5

Sreesanth to Prince, OUT, What a delivery. A youtube moment for Sreesanth. The last one seamed away. This one was a beauty: It swung in the air, landed on the good length outside off and invited Prince to drive. The bat came down but the ball shaped back in generously to thread the bat and pad gap and crashed into the off stump. Clatter! Fab delivery this.

AG Prince b Sreesanth 47 (144m 100b 6x4 0x6) SR: 47.00

83.6

Sreesanth to Boucher, OUT, Sreesanth take a bow. Another gem. Boucher had no chance. His poor series with the bat continues. It landed on a good length around the off stump, seam position facing the first slip as it rushed through the air, and Boucher shaped to defend. He must have thought he had got enough wood behind the line of the ball but it seamed further away to clip the outer edge. Serene celebrations from Sreesanth. India get back into the Test. Kallis stands alone.

MV Boucher c †Dhoni b Sreesanth 0 (2m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

84.2

85.1

Sreesanth to Kallis, 1 no ball, he steams in for the hat-trick ball but oversteps the line. It was a good delivery. It landed on a good length around middle and off and straightened. Kallis did well to get behind the line to defend

85.1

Sreesanth to Kallis, no run, lands this one outside off and it shapes away, left alone

85.2

85.3

Sreesanth to Kallis, FOUR, tries to get this one to swing from the middle stump line but Kallis is quick on the front foot and drives neatly to mid-on where Tendulkar makes a royal mess of a regulation stop.

85.4

Sreesanth to Kallis, FOUR, Whippy whip! Stylish. He moves to 99 with a firm flick through midwicket. Sreesanth was looking for swing but ends up over pitching it and Kallis makes him pay.

85.5

Sreesanth to Kallis, no run, gets forward , a good positive stride out, and defends to the off side. Sreesanth has a chat with him. The crowd roar!

End of over 86 (9 runs) South Africa 272/6

DW Steyn    0* (4b)      Z Khan    22-5-64-1

86.1

Khan to Steyn, OUT, The bouncer takes out Steyn. Zaheer switched to round the stumps and got one to rear up at the throat of Steyn who took his eyes off and put up his bat as a shield. It didn't work. It flew up to gully. Kallis is on 99. SA 272 for 7.

DW Steyn c Pujara b Khan 0 (12m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

JH Kallis    99* (207b 9x4)      S Sreesanth    23-0-81-4

87.1

Sreesanth to Kallis, no run, Yet another gem. This is some spell here. Sreesanth, headband holding his unruly mop of hair, is turning it on here at Newlands. This one is full and swings away late from Kallis, who is beaten. To his credit, Kallis didn't chase the ball, just pushed inside the line

87.2

Sreesanth to Kallis, (no ball) 1 run, There it is. 100 no 39. Whaddaplayaaa! He stays back to work this one past square-leg and the crowd erupts. Off comes the helmet and Kallis sports a big nice smile. The crowd keep cheering. They love him here and why not. A fab player.

87.3

87.4

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.

87.5

Sreesanth to Morkel, no run, leans forward to defend to the on side

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.

94.1

Sharma to Kallis, no run, covers his off stump and watches this ball sail through to Dhoni

Mark: "Myron, it was fine to have Boucher in the team when he was followed by Polly/Klusener/Boje etc. Our tail is too long now to have a batsmen at 7 who does not contribute.

Chris: "Sameer, no test wicket keeper can bat at 5 like De Villiers after keeping for 100 plus overs. De Villiers is too important to the team at 5 to loose form because of focusing on keeping too. Our problem is we have no proper all rounders from 8 down"
