5.6

Ntini to Uthappa, no run, fullish and on the off, this one is quick from Ntini, the ball slants in and Uthappa goes forward and across in defense. The ball comes off the edge and hits pad and there's a loud shout for the lbw. Turned down by Taufel.

India 34/3   RV Uthappa 0* (2b)
6.2

Pollock to Uthappa, 2 runs, fullish and on the stumps once more, Uthappa walks across and flicks. It's uppish but in the gap and timed quite well. The ball runs down to midwicket

6.3

Pollock to Uthappa, no run, short of a driving length and on the off, defended a touch awkwardly towards the off side

6.4

Pollock to Uthappa, no run, short of a driving length and on the off, Pollock hitting a good line and length here, defended back down the pitch

6.5

Pollock to Uthappa, no run, short of a good length and outside the off, Uthappa walks well across and gets outside the line and tries to flick. There's an appeal for the lbw but that's clearly not out.

6.6

Pollock to Uthappa, no run, full and on the off, driven back to the bowler. End of an excellent spell from Pollock. This is more like the Pollock we know in international cricket. In previous games he's been taken for quite a few runs by some of the lesser lights of world batting. Here, on his home ground, Pollock has put in a solid performance.

India 37/3   RV Uthappa 2* (7b)

van der Wath to Uthappa, no run, short one banged in by van Der Wath, hook shot played and missed, through to the keeper

van der Wath to Uthappa, 1 run, short of a good length and outside the off, eased through the vacant gully region for runs

7.6

van der Wath to Uthappa, SIX, another short one banged in. Uthappa sees this one really early and is in position in a flash. Aggressive front-foot pull and this is sweetly struck. The ball sails into the stands over midwicket

India 46/3   RV Uthappa 9* (10b 1x6)
8.6

M Morkel to Uthappa, 1 run, fullish and on the stumps, placed just wide of mid-on for a quick single

9.1

van der Wath to Uthappa, no run, short one banged in outside the off stump, Uthappa goes for another front-foot pull. The ball balloons up towards mid-on. Vernon Philander drops a clanger. He just doesn't watch the ball properly and lets it pop out of his hand. Graeme Smith is not amused. That was a sitter

9.2

van der Wath to Uthappa, 1 run

India 49/3   RV Uthappa 11* (13b 1x6)

10.3

M Morkel to Uthappa, OUT, caught! Uthappa takes a step down the pitch and tries to loft Morkel down the ground, he doesn't get the necessary elevation and hits it straight to Smith at mid-off, India are in massive amounts of trouble
