View dismissal DS Smith c Smith b Steyn 5 24 18 0 0 27.77
5.6 the breakthrough and a limp shot, angled across the left hander, Smith aims a loose drive with anchored feet and the ball goes to first slip at an ideal height 26/1
View dismissal BA Parchment lbw b Pollock 19 36 25 3 0 76.00
8.3 a massive shout as Parchment falls to off as he looks to play across the line and is hit back in his crease, Koertzen wastes no time in raising the finger, albeit it's severals seconds before it is in its final position 35/2
View dismissal MN Samuels b Nel 11 36 18 1 0 61.11
13.4 bowled him! A horrid shot, trying to cut this straighter ball. It was too close to him, and he drags it on 61/3
View dismissal S Chanderpaul c de Villiers b Nel 17 44 34 3 0 50.00
17.2 gone this time! Short and wide, a filthy delivery but Chanderpaul matches the poor ball with a terrible stroke, cutting it straight to point 68/4
View dismissal RS Morton run out (Pollock/†Boucher) 41 94 50 2 0 82.00
33.3 from Steyn, a full toss which he smashes down the ground. Pollock, at long-on, finally sends in a good, flat, hard throw to Boucher who does the rest, in spite of Morton's dive 150/7
View dismissal DJ Bravo* c †Boucher b Langeveldt 2 7 5 0 0 40.00
18.3 and he's got him! Another outswinger, Bravo wrongly decided to whip it through his favoured leg-side region and gets a thick inside edge. Boucher, diving to his left, does the rest 72/5
View dismissal D Ramdin c †Boucher b Morkel 3 11 9 0 0 33.33
21.3 another one! Good line outside off, but too short to be driving and he gets a thin edge through to the keeper 81/6
View dismissal DJG Sammy run out (Pollock/Nel) 51 65 51 1 3 100.00
35.4 from Steyn, clunked down to long-off and he calls through for two...but the throw is flat, hard and Sammy's short of his ground 175/9
View dismissal R Rampaul run out (Duminy) 2 11 5 0 0 40.00
35.3 from Steyn, and he nudges this to leg, scampers through for a single to give Sammy the strike...but he's miles out 174/8
View dismissal DBL Powell b Steyn 0 4 1 0 0 0.00
35.5 bowled him! He steps outside leg, tries to bash it over midwicket but the ball deflects off his pad onto his stumps 175/10

View dismissal GC Smith* b Powell 1 3 3 0 0 33.33
0.6 bowled him - his middle stump is flattened! A dreadful shot from Smith, trying to drive this wider ball but he didn't move his feet an inch. Consequently, the bat arced down from first slip, dragging the ball onto his stumps 2/1
View dismissal AB de Villiers c Samuels b Edwards 2 15 9 0 0 22.22
3.1 good catch! Fine bowling from Edwards, as de Villiers tries to pull this from outside his off stump but skies it over point's head. Samuels circles beneath it, steadies himself and takes a really good catch 4/2
View dismissal JH Kallis c †Ramdin b Rampaul 24 65 43 3 0 55.81
15.1 that changes things and some. Short, Kallis looks to work it to leg but rolls his wrists too early, gets a top edge and all Ramdin has to do is go back five yards and wait for the ball to come down 59/3
JP Duminy not out 79 148 88 9 1 89.77
View dismissal JL Ontong c & b Bravo 23 42 28 1 0 82.14
24.1 what a catch! What an amazing catch from Dwayne Bravo. A bouncer, Ontong tried to defend but got a leading edge up in the air. Bravo sprinted down the pitch and dived, full length, taking the ball while horizontal to the ground, about two feet from Ontong 118/4
