4.1

Umar Gul to Petersen, 1 leg bye, nudged towards square leg for a single

South Africa 6/0   AN Petersen 1* (12b)

5.1

Junaid Khan to Petersen, no run, lovely ball from Junaid, 138.9kph, pitched up and around middle stump, that straightens a touch and Petersen is beaten, lucky for him he didn't nibble it through

5.2

Junaid Khan to Petersen, no run, not the best follow-up delivery, swinging and wide down the leg side, giving the keeper a workout there

5.3

Junaid Khan to Petersen, no run, this time Petersen doesn't poke at the ball outside off, angles across him and he is withdraws the bat at the last moment, leaves it by playing well inside the line

5.4

Junaid Khan to Petersen, no run, big appeal from Junaid, who is always enthusiastic when it comes to lbw, this looked to have pitched outside leg and contact was pretty high as well

5.5

Junaid Khan to Petersen, no run, angling across once more, Petersen isn't comfortable at all here, he stays in the crease and isn't sure whether to leave or play, he's beaten as that sneak between bat and body

9.5

Junaid Khan to Petersen, no run, beaten outside off, terrific delivery from Junaid, sucking Petersen forward with the length,getting the ball to nip away, past the outside edge, there is a discussion over whether to go for the DRS for a caught-behind shout, they decide against it, wisely

Rahat Ali to Petersen, no run, too far outside off, much too far to worry the batsman, Rahat making

12.6

Rahat Ali to Petersen, no run, better from Rahat, short of length and on of stump, blocked off the back foot, and the South Africa openers walk off for a well-earned drink

14.3

Rahat Ali to Petersen, no run, length ball angling down the leg side, off the pads and the ball dribbles towards square leg

14.4

Rahat Ali to Petersen, 1 wide, too far outside off from Rahat, too far for the umpire's liking, not sure that was far enough to be called a wide though

14.4

Rahat Ali to Petersen, FOUR, not that short from Rahat, but short enough for Petersen to pull that away towards midwicket for four, he loves that shot, dismissive shot, played well in front of square

South Africa 38/0   AN Petersen 16* (43b 2x4)
