Shillingford to Smith, OUT, What a moment for the debutant! A Test wicket. It was the flighted delivery on the leg stump line, full in length and it lured Smith to come forward to defend. Smith takes a tiny step out and pushes out at it; the ball spun sharply, caught the outside edge and went to first slip

GC Smith c Bravo b Shillingford 23 (82b 3x4 0x6) SR: 28.04

South Africa 55/1   AN Petersen 28* (86b 2x4)   S Shillingford 2.5-1-2-1

Benn to Amla, OUT, Benn can tweet something happy tonight! Big wicket. Amla has been swallowed at first slip. It was the loopy delivery full in length around off and Amla leaned forward for the drive. He ends up stabbing at it well away from the body. Mistake. The ball dipped, gripped and took the outside edge and went to first slip. Gone!

HM Amla c Bravo b Benn 2 (9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 22.22

South Africa 60/2   AN Petersen 31* (92b 2x4)   SJ Benn 9.2-4-17-1

Shillingford to Petersen, OUT, Shout for lbw and it has been given out by Asad Rauf. The batsman ask for the UDRS. Much fun. It was a flighted delivery that landed outside the off stump and turned in. Petersen, who remember takes an off-stump guard, took a small step out and went for the drive but missed the ball. It hit him mainly outside the off stump but there was a small part of the ball in the line of off stump.

Don't get confused. Let's go to that mail from Keerthi Kumar: "Ian Bishop also said, "If the orginal decision was OUT and was decision was referred thru UDRS, any part of the ball in the line of wicket to wicket at the point of impact is good enough to hold on-field umpire's decision...."

AN Petersen lbw b Shillingford 31 (93b 2x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

South Africa 68/3   JH Kallis 4* (7b)   S Shillingford 4.4-2-4-2

Benn to Harris, OUT, funny old shot by Harris, Benn bowls it quicker and lands it on a length, Harris stays back and tries to flat-bat it over cover but gives Shillingford a very easy catch, the ball may have stopped on him, nevertheless, he gave his wicket away

PL Harris c Shillingford b Benn 10 (24b 0x4 1x6) SR: 41.66

South Africa 91/4   JH Kallis 17* (25b)   SJ Benn 13.4-4-28-2

Shillingford to Kallis, OUT, the debutant strikes again! The ball lands well outside off stump and turns back in sharply, Kallis moves across his stumps to flick it away and exposes his middle and leg stump, the ball hits his pads in line with middle and leg, easy one for Rauf, Kallis looks uncertain at first and we think he's going to refer it but he walks off

JH Kallis lbw b Shillingford 28 (65b 1x4 0x6) SR: 43.07

South Africa 107/5   AB de Villiers 5* (15b 1x4)   S Shillingford 12.5-2-28-3

Gayle to Prince, OUT, Gayle does the trick! He comes round the wicket and angles it around the pads, Prince tries to work it to the on side but ends up tamely lobbing it to Dowlin at backward short leg

AG Prince c Dowlin b Gayle 57 (119b 2x4 1x6) SR: 47.89

South Africa 229/6   AB de Villiers 64* (134b 5x4)   CH Gayle 0.1-0-0-1

Benn to de Villiers, OUT, de Villiers has to go! Benn flights it outside off, de Villiers gets forward to drive but gets a thin edge to Ramdin, neat catch and he knows he's got him, de Villiers pauses at the crease for a few second and then walks

AB de Villiers c †Ramdin b Benn 68 (145b 5x4 0x6) SR: 46.89

South Africa 238/7   MV Boucher 4* (13b)   SJ Benn 33.1-6-83-3

Benn to Steyn, OUT, Benn has his revenge against Steyn, he tosses it up outside off and invites the big hit, Steyn comes a long way down the track, heaves and misses, Ramdin does the rest

DW Steyn st †Ramdin b Benn 39 (73b 4x4 2x6) SR: 53.42

South Africa 324/8   MV Boucher 46* (94b 3x4)   SJ Benn 41.2-8-105-4

Benn to Morkel, OUT, Benn's taken five! Flatter delivery from over the wicket, Morkel gets on his knee and fetches that from outside off to slog it away, gets a thick inside edge on to his off stump

M Morkel b Benn 2 (10b 0x4 0x6) SR: 20.00

South Africa 330/9   MV Boucher 50* (108b 3x4)   SJ Benn 43.2-9-110-5

Bravo to Boucher, OUT, Boucher's resistance finally ends, he gets under the bounce to a full delivery and scoops it towards wide long-on and Pascal takes a good catch almost over his head

MV Boucher c Pascal b Bravo 69 (146b 4x4 1x6) SR: 47.26

South Africa 352/10   LL Tsotsobe 3* (18b)   DJ Bravo 16.4-6-33-1
