View dismissal GC Smith* c Oram b Bond 1 7 12 0 0 8.33
1.5 Bond strikes! Smith gone! This one was again pitched up outside off stump, perhaps a tad slower, Smith's feet go nowhere as he drives at it, the ball spoons up towards cover-point where Oram dives to his right and clings onto it 3/1
View dismissal AB de Villiers lbw b Franklin 0 10 6 0 0 0.00
2.6 gone! Franklin slants a few across him and then brings one in, straighter, the ball moved in the air and then came in, de Villiers stood like a duck and got hit low on the front leg in front of about leg stump, and umpire Benson doesnt hesitate to raise the finger 3/2
View dismissal JH Kallis c Bond b Vettori 22 77 54 1 1 40.74
19.5 pulls the trigger but falls flat on his face. Vettori flights one on middle, good loop that time and Kallis down the track and gives himself a bit of room as well. He hasn't got to the pitch of the ball but goes ahead with the wild slash anyway. The attempt was to get it over extra cover but he can't get the timing, it's skied up in the air and Bond completes a well-judged catch at the cover region. That is a big wicket. New Zealand cock-a-hoop 52/3
View dismissal HH Gibbs b McMillan 60 139 100 2 1 60.00
36.6 he's gone! The bowling change works! Gibbs drives at one outside off stump, leaden-footed, and can only look on as the ball clips the bat, the leg, and rolls onto off stump 128/4
View dismissal AG Prince c Patel b McMillan 37 73 57 2 0 64.91
40.5 gone! McMillan! The ball's full outside off stump, Prince goes for that punch down the ground he so prefers, but gets under it, perhaps beaten by the lack of pace, and holes out to Patel at long-off 143/5
View dismissal MV Boucher c Fulton b McMillan 16 21 21 1 0 76.19
42.2 oh Macca, Macca! Bowls a slow one outside off stump, there to be hit, but Boucher gets under it and ends up slogging straight up in the air down to long-on, where 'Two-meter Peter', as Ian Smith referred to him, chews it up 149/6
SM Pollock not out 21 38 26 0 1 80.76
View dismissal AJ Hall c Oram b Bond 17 25 17 1 0 100.00
47.6 he responds with a well-disguised slower ball, Hall clears the leg to biff it over the infield, gets under it, the ball spoons up in the air and into Oram's safe hands moving in from long-off 181/7

View dismissal PG Fulton c Hall b Ntini 16 30 32 3 0 50.00
7.2 edged and gone! Ntini persists with his outside-the-off-stump line, Fulton reaches for it and drives loosely, and the regulation thick edge is snapped up well by Hall at second clip to give South Africa the breakthrough 25/1
View dismissal SP Fleming* c †Boucher b Pollock 50 133 84 6 0 59.52
30.1 and he takes one ball to strike! Its just outside off stump, Fleming stands there and thinks its good enough to cut, but ends up getting a fine edge into Boucher's gloves, a great take! 120/3
View dismissal LRPL Taylor lbw b Nel 10 22 17 1 0 58.82
12.2 gone! Nel steams in, fires one in one a good length outside off stump, the ball jags in sharply, catching Taylor on the crease, and without any hesitation umpire Benson flashes up the finger...but oh ho, replays show the ball was going well over the stumps... 42/2
View dismissal SB Styris c Gibbs b Peterson 56 141 84 4 0 66.66
43.4 gone this time! Styris looks to end this affair in an array of big hits, dances out of his crease, gets under it and ends up hitting it too hard, and Gibbs, with the sun in his eyes, judges it well moving back from mid-off and takes it 176/4
CD McMillan not out 38 84 55 2 1 69.09
View dismissal JDP Oram b Nel 10 22 18 1 0 55.55
48.1 cleaned em up! It was full, no room to hit, and Oram swings across the line only to hear the death rattle behind him! What a celebration from Nel as he savours the sight of splayed stumps in front of him! 192/5
