Mills to Kallis, no run, starts out full outside off stump and the ball swings through the air, a good sign, and Kallis gets forward and leaves the ball be for the wicketkeeper


Mills to Kallis, no run, and again a little bit of movement for Mills, pitches it up, and once more Kallis strides forward and shoulders arms ... its like day one of a Test in Napier


Mills to Kallis, 2 runs, now Kallis decides to use the thing in his hands and flashes at another full and swinging delivery and gets two down to Butler at third man, who fumbles and allows a second


Mills to Kallis, 1 run, better length, just holding it back, Kallis steers to backward point

South Africa 3/0   JH Kallis 3* (4b)

Oram to Kallis, FOUR, thats down the pads, right where Kallis likes them, and with no fielder at square leg he clips it off the pads for four, good shot


Oram to Kallis, no run, better ball, hits a good length and shaping in from outside off stump so Kallis gets forward and defends to the off side

Mills to Kallis, no run, pitches middle and leg, swings in, Kallis flicks to midwicket


Mills to Kallis, no run, makes some room to try and thrash the ball over point but Mills drops it short and wide and Kallis ends up flaying the bat at ball and connecting with nothing but air


Mills to Kallis, FOUR, fluent drive that, it was a half-volley, granted, but needed to be put away and Kallis played a thumping shot past extra cover for four, balance correct and all that jazz


Mills to Kallis, 1 run, back of a length outside off stump, Kallis sees the ball swing and then plays it late, running it down the ground to backward point, thats smart batting


Mills to Kallis, SIX, miscued but still goes the distance! Kallis backs away and uses his feet to get some momentum going and connects well enough to thrash that over cover-point and thoughts it not timed perfectly he gets enough on it to dump it just over the ropes

South Africa 22/0   JH Kallis 19* (12b 2x4 1x6)

Oram to Kallis, 1 run, speared into the pads, he clears the front leg and clips it for one


Oram to Kallis, 1 run, pitched up on off stump and Kallis punched a drive in the air over Oram's hands, the ball drops safely in the deep and McCullum from mid-off collects and releases immeditately, had he hit Kallis would have been sweating

South Africa 26/0   JH Kallis 21* (14b 2x4 1x6)

Butler to Kallis, no run, sharp movement back in, cuts back off a length and Kallis is cramped as he tries to run it down to third man, ends up taking it on the arm

NL McCullum to Kallis, no run, slides down Kallis' pads and raps them as he's late on the flick


NL McCullum to Kallis, no run, good fielding off his own bowling, first he tosses it up on middle and leg, Kallis drives down the ground but in a flash McCullum dives across and saves runs


NL McCullum to Kallis, 1 run, thats too full and Kallis clips it past mid-on for a single


NL McCullum to Kallis, no run, starts to advance, McCullum fires it straighter and gets some turn away from Kallis, who ends up pushing it back to the bowler's left side
