  West Indies 1st innings R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal KC Brathwaite c Elgar b Steyn 7 58 35 1 0 20.00
13.2 84.0 mph, there's the breakthrough! Will that fire Steyn up? Back of a length outside off, Brathwaite pushes hard at it off the back foot and the thick edge flies low to gully who takes a smart catch. He's been keen to feel bat on ball all morning. 30/1
View dismissal DS Smith b Harmer 47 119 86 8 0 54.65
26.6 54.7 mph, done him! A maiden Test wicket. Last ball before lunch. It was a touch shorter, he went back to cut but it was too close to off stump and it slides under the bottom edge to take the bails. After all that hard work he's given it away. A bit of a brain fade from Smith. Offspin does for him again. Joy for Harmer. 80/2
View dismissal LR Johnson lbw b Harmer 54 109 84 9 0 64.28
38.3 56.6 mph, wider on the crease, flatter ball that skids on and plumb lbw! Johnson caught on the crease and falls, deceived by the angle and perhaps a change of pace, it was slight quicker and skidded past the inside edge into the front pad low down and would have taken out middle and leg no doubt about it, umpire's finger was up almost before Harmer could turn around 131/3
View dismissal MN Samuels c du Plessis b van Zyl 43 106 70 6 0 61.42
51.1 69.9 mph, first ball! Would you believe it?! Well, I guess you would with the way Samuels sometimes bats. It was a floaty, wide delivery, Samuels couldn't resist and reached out for the drive but couldn't keep the ball down and found cover. A first Test wicket for van Zyl, the second of the day 162/4
View dismissal S Chanderpaul st †de Villiers b Harmer 9 72 48 1 0 18.75
56.1 51.9 mph, full down the leg side, Chanderpaul falls over it and is smartly stumped! Another for Harmer and a big breakthrough. Chanderpaul totally overbalancing trying to flick this into the leg side and de Villiers took it well before whipping off the bails, no needed for the third umpire 172/5
View dismissal J Blackwood lbw b Steyn 56 168 113 6 0 49.55
94.1 85.6 mph, he's struck! Look pretty straight first up. Full, on the stumps, Blackwood falling across slightly. He calls for the review but more out of hope than expectation, I think. Unless he's hit it. Which he hasn't. Smashing leg stump full on. Three reds. Another West Indies batsman falls between 43 and, now, 56. 299/7
View dismissal D Ramdin*† c & b Steyn 53 113 103 6 0 51.45
85.2 84.7 mph, there's the breakthrough! Steyn's the man, late in the day. It's a full, straight delivery. Ramdin is early on the shot, perhaps aiming too much leg side, the ball straightened a touch on him and lobs a catch back to Steyn 266/6
View dismissal JO Holder c van Zyl b Steyn 23 52 34 4 0 67.64
96.3 85.2 mph, he's given it away, poor stroke! Short of a length, lures him into a pull, he's nowhere near in control and it just goes straight up in the air and lands safely in the hands of mid-on 316/8
View dismissal JE Taylor c Steyn b Morkel 13 17 12 1 0 108.33
97.1 86.0 mph, and strikes first ball! Another cross-batted hoick, a short-of-a-length delivery and Taylor plays something crossed between a pull and hook, gets it off the top part of the bat and it flies down to long leg who judges the catch very well 319/9
View dismissal SJ Benn c Bavuma b Morkel 5 19 11 1 0 45.45
99.5 82.3 mph, and that's that...the full delivery does the job, Benn's weight on the back foot as he goes for the drive and he lobs a catch which carries low to mid-off. Neatly held, coming forward, by Bavuma. Morkel earns some reward. 329/10

  South Africa 1st innings R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal AN Petersen run out (Blackwood) 42 130 85 3 1 49.41
27.1 Benn to du Plessis, what a moment! For South Africa, but especially Petersen. The ball slid off the face into backward point, Blackwood was quickly around and the direct hit finds Petersen well short of his crease. After all that hard work it's a self-inflicted blow. That will hurt. The ball went behind square, so it was Petersen's call. Very alert from Blackwood. 104/2
View dismissal D Elgar lbw b Holder 8 58 30 1 0 26.66
11.5 81.5 mph, close, and given! What a moment to break through, if it stands. And Elgar declines the review. Holder straightened his line, much closer to off stump, continued in with the angle and Elgar had come right across his stumps and gets hit in front of middle and off. Yep, that was smashing middle about two-thirds up. 48/1
View dismissal F du Plessis st †Ramdin b Benn 68 150 122 8 0 55.73
49.1 50.1 mph, floated up well outside off, du Plessis charges after it, misses completely and is comprehensively stumped. That's a touch silly from Faf. Benn tossed it a fraction wider when he sensed the batsman coming at him but du Plessis still played a nasty hack at it, missed by a long distance and was a good half-yard out of his ground when Ramdin took the ball and whipped off the bails 157/3
View dismissal HM Amla* c †Ramdin b Holder 63 189 150 7 0 42.00
75.1 77.2 mph, and it's worked! Change of ball does the trick, and the short delay in play. Lovely delivery, pitched around off stump just short of a length, straightens off the seam and Amla gets a healthy outside edge to the keeper. 254/4
View dismissal AB de Villiers c Gabriel b Samuels 148 323 194 15 1 76.28
122.4 47.4 mph, down the pitch, but it hasn't got the legs...tried to clear long on, got too far underneath the ball and found more height than distance. Long on steadies under the ball, although it popped out on the first grab but it fell down by his chest and he kept his cool 421/10
View dismissal T Bavuma b Gabriel 15 53 41 2 0 36.58
86.5 87.3 mph, done it! The probing line pays off. Full outside off, Bavuma wasn't sure whether to play and leave and in the end deflects the ball into his stumps as he tries to withdraw the bat 288/5
View dismissal S van Zyl lbw b Samuels 33 91 63 3 0 52.38
108.2 52.7 mph, well, he's made the breakthrough! That's why he's bowling, although van Zyl has used a review again. Was trapped on the back foot as the ball went straight on, but has stuck him high on the back leg. Not far for the ball to travel. No inside edge. It's shaving the bails, so the decision will stand. The strike bowler has struck. 384/6
View dismissal VD Philander run out (Holder/Benn) 0 8 7 0 0 0.00
109.4 from Benn, tight run! And it goes upstairs. Think he's safe. Tucked into midwicket and he had to get a hustle on. Philander not the quickets, and he's gone! Well, well. He's short by a few inches. Not sure he quite stretched as he might have done as he reached the crease. Credit to Holder at midwicket, he moved quickly to his right, got down sharply and produced an accurate throw to Benn at the stumps 385/7
View dismissal SR Harmer lbw b Taylor 10 37 48 2 0 20.83
119.5 84.5 mph, finger went up very quickly and this time there's no review. Playing across the line of a length delivery, it didn't do much. Struck him fairly high and that would have gone over the stumps! So South Africa have missed that. Reiffel the umpire, for those keeping notes 404/8
View dismissal DW Steyn run out (Johnson) 0 6 1 0 0 0.00
120.4 Samuels to de Villiers, another run out? Yes, given on the field! No need for TV this time. De Villiers came down the pitch, pushed it firmly to cover and he called for the run. It was a direct hit by Johnson and it found Steyn well short. 408/9

View dismissal KC Brathwaite b Harmer 16 64 45 1 0 35.55
13.5 53.5 mph, what a gem! Brilliant start by Harmer. Top-class spin bowling. This one spins back from spins back from outside off but still beats Brathwaite on the outside edge to take off stump. Playing off the back foot and he was in a poor position 27/2
View dismissal DS Smith c †de Villiers b Morkel 7 50 36 1 0 19.44
10.6 86.8 mph, the breakthrough for South Africa, and it's Morkel! Not his best ball, but it won't matter to him in the slightest. This angles into the pads, Smith plays at it, trying to turn the ball into the leg side, and it appears to glance the glove through to de Villiers who takes a good catch low to his right 23/1
View dismissal LR Johnson c Amla b Morkel 44 112 76 6 0 57.89
36.5 89.6 mph, tad shorter, leaves the left-hander who follows it and nicks it to slip! Bounced a little and took the edge of the splice of the bat for a simple catch to Amla at first slip. On reflection, Johnson will think he should have left it but it was a tricky line and he tried to just knock it down on the off side but the bounce did for him 95/3
View dismissal MN Samuels c Elgar b Harmer 74 225 150 9 2 49.33
64.5 51.6 mph, down again, lifts it down the ground but finds mid-on! The pressure was really on, 28 balls for just four for Samuels and he's cracked, trying to go big down the ground, didn't get the elevation and is taken by mid-on running a few yards to his left 182/4
View dismissal S Chanderpaul run out (Bavuma) 50 203 113 5 0 44.24
79.5 Steyn to Gabriel, all over! Bit of a shambles to end the innings. Gabriel defends a short of a length delivery, it runs to backward point he sets off for the single off the fifth ball of the over. Both batsmen then stall and the direct hit from Bavuma finds Chanderpaul well short. 215/10
View dismissal J Blackwood b Steyn 13 35 26 2 0 50.00
71.6 86.9 mph, full delivery, shapes away a little and bowled him! Steyn strikes with a lovely ball, angled in before seaming away a little and takes out middle and off stumps. Blackwood playing across it a little trying to go with the angle but when it straightened he was done for 202/5
View dismissal D Ramdin*† c Harmer b Steyn 0 5 1 0 0 0.00
73.1 85.0 mph, and another! He's on fire. Yes, South Africa sense the moment. Wasn't his best ball, was swinging into the pads but Ramdin couldn't keep it down and it's well caught by van Zyl coming forward just in front of square leg 204/6
View dismissal JO Holder c Amla b Harmer 2 16 16 0 0 12.50
76.3 51.7 mph, picks him out! He was close in the last over and this time clips a low catch to short midwicket. Lazy shot by someone who has shown some technique with the bat. Well bowled by Harmer who drew him in with a full delivery and Amla stood in exactly the right spot 213/7
View dismissal JE Taylor c Elgar b Harmer 0 3 2 0 0 0.00
76.5 51.0 mph, oh dear, oh dear! I'm afraid that's awful cricket from Taylor. He has Chanderpaul at the other end but decides to try and pick this up from outside off and slogs it down the throat of deep midwicket waiting for exactly that 213/8
