View dismissal HM Amla b Benn 34 42 28 5 0 121.42
9.2 53.5 mph, chopped it on! Tossed up outside off, the ball skids on and Amla expects it to turn as he shapes to cut through the off side, he gets a inside edge on to the stumps 53/1
View dismissal GC Smith* lbw b DJ Bravo 29 76 41 1 0 70.73
16.4 86.9 mph, Smith takes a middle stump guard and exposes his leg stump, Bravo bowls a yorker on the leg stump line and Smith fails to deflect it away to fine leg, the ball hits the base of the pad and Harper gives it out 91/2
View dismissal JH Kallis c Sammy b Benn 31 54 41 2 1 75.60
21.3 55.7 mph, just a hint of doubt whether Sammy was in control of the ball long enough after taking the catch, Kallis cuts it on the up towards Sammy at point, the ball travels low and Sammy picks it inches off the turf, he caught it alright but he pushed the ball away after a couple of seconds, not exactly Gibbs in the 1999 World Cup but it looked clean enough on seeing the replay, Kallis lurked around for a few seconds and glanced at the umpire, he was prepared to walk and the umpire just checked with Sammy once again if it was clean - no arguments, settled 113/3
View dismissal AB de Villiers run out (Benn) 70 113 80 2 1 87.50
43.2 from Rampaul, well done, big man! de Villiers punches a full delivery past the bowler and down to long-off, de Villiers jogs the first run, isn't sure of the second, Steyn steps out of his crease for the second run but there's no communication, de Villiers too ambles out of his crease, then turns around but it was too late as Benn's throw shattered the middle stump 207/7
View dismissal AN Petersen b Pollard 16 35 31 1 0 51.61
31.6 73.3 mph, chopped on again! Pollard gets it to angle inwards, Petersen tries to dab it towards third man but the ball skids through and takes the inside edge, not the best choice of shot 153/4
View dismissal DA Miller c †Ramdin b Taylor 5 10 9 0 0 55.55
34.2 84.5 mph, as straightforward as it can get, Taylor bangs it in short again, this time down the leg side, Miller can't resist the pull but the ball lobs off his glove and Ramdin knew instantly he was history 162/5
View dismissal J Botha c & b DJ Bravo 18 60 25 0 0 72.00
47.2 78.3 mph, good reflexes by Bravo! Botha spoons a full delivery back to the bowler, it was hit firmly and Bravo barely had time to react but he cupped his hands just over his head and took it 224/10
View dismissal R McLaren c Richards b Pollard 5 9 11 0 0 45.45
42.5 74.0 mph, that drop didn't cost anything! Pollard pitches it up outside off and McLaren gets forward and ends up spooning it low to Richards at short cover 206/6
View dismissal DW Steyn b Rampaul 0 6 5 0 0 0.00
43.6 86.7 mph, yorker! See ya later! Rampaul fires an inswinging yorker and Steyn plays all over it, the ball hits the leg stump 207/8
View dismissal M Morkel c DM Bravo b Pollard 14 16 13 2 0 107.69
46.3 70.6 mph, SA in danger of not playing out 50 overs here, Morkel plays a front-foot pull over midwicket and nearly clears the rope, Darren Bravo jogs to his left and takes it comfortably but inches from the rope 223/9
