4.1

Bracken to Kallis, no run, punched off the back foot into the covers, and all with one hand as the bottom one slips off the handle as he plays the stroke

4.2

Bracken to Kallis, no run, a strangled appeal as the ball hits Kallis high on the pad ... he had taken two big steps down the pitch

4.3

Bracken to Kallis, 1 run, a rather limp drive between cover fielders, muted cheers and a solitary horn welcome the run to the man in the deep

South Africa 8/1   JH Kallis 1* (6b)
5.1

McGrath to Kallis, no run, Kallis not remotely tempted as the ball passes by and Gilchrist takes by his feet

McGrath to Kallis, FOUR, Kallis dances down the track, McGrath sees him step to leg, follows him, but Kallis still punches that past extra cover

5.3

McGrath to Kallis, OUT, Kallis again gives himself room and advances to meet the ball, but McGrath fires in a yorker which clatters into the off stump

JH Kallis b McGrath 5 (12m 9b 1x4 0x6) SR: 55.55
