7.2

Mascarenhas to Kemp, 3 runs, neatly picked up off middle, swished over wide mid-on, Anderson fields on the rope

7.3

Mascarenhas to Boucher, 1 run, full, no more than defended to mid-on who makes a complete sow's ear of stopping it and it goes through his legs

7.4

Mascarenhas to Kemp, no run, wide would have been had he left it - slammed to mid-off

7.5

Mascarenhas to Kemp, no run, he drives, he misses and Prior, standing up, takes

7.6

Mascarenhas to Kemp, 1 run, back and steered to the left of wide mid-on, an easy single but England won't mind that

South Africa 54/3   AD Mascarenhas 1-0-5-0

11.1

Mascarenhas to Boucher, FOUR, dragged short, outside off, and driven on the up over midwicket for a one-bounce four

11.2

Mascarenhas to Boucher, 1 run, steps back to make room for a sweet drive out to Schofield at long-off

11.3

Mascarenhas to Kemp, 1 run, slower ball, rolling the fingers over it, drops short and wide but nearly gets the wicket, with the fielder getting a fingertip to it at cover

11.4

Mascarenhas to Boucher, no run, a rare dot, flamingo-whipped - that shot is copyright Pietersen by the way - straight to the man at midwicket

11.5

Mascarenhas to Boucher, 2 runs, short again, dragged out to the sweeper on the off-side

11.6

Mascarenhas to Boucher, 1 run, driven out to midwicket, could have been two; instead he keeps the strike

South Africa 86/3   AD Mascarenhas 2-0-14-0

15.1

Mascarenhas to Kemp, OUT, another pull which doesn't come off and skies high. Now, Prior did very well there to make the call in a sea of fielders, and cut right through them to take a difficult catch, leaping forward at the last second

15.5

Mascarenhas to JA Morkel, 1 run, worked into the on-side

15.6

Mascarenhas to Philander, 1 run, veering in at leg and despite the misfield at midwicket they settle for one
