2.2

Steyn to Pietersen, FOUR, four! And what a noise from the crowd - a huge roar as Pietersen flicks it powerfully through midwicket

2.3

Steyn to Pietersen, FOUR, excellent ball just outside off but that's a textbook straight drive from Pietersen and the crowd let him know it! A tremendous roar once more to a beautiful off-drive

2.4

Steyn to Pietersen, no run, a huge shout from Steyn - that's out! Is it? No! Perhaps a bit high? Good grief that's seriously tight! The replays suggest it was just sneaking over...

2.5

Steyn to Pietersen, no run, extravagantly left alone outside off. Pietersen looks to Tony Hill with a big smile on his face, expecting him to call it a wide. Hill smiles back, his hands remaining steadfast by his side

2.6

Steyn to Pietersen, 1 run, defended out to the off side

England 15/2   KP Pietersen 9* (5b 2x4)
3.1

Parnell to Pietersen, no run, Pietersen ignores it outside off, watches it sail by. Good carry through to Boucher

3.2

Parnell to Pietersen, no run, crashed to cover! Straight to cover, though

3.3

Parnell to Pietersen, no run, very good, straight delivery banged back to the bowler who threatens to wang into Pietersen's skull. He keeps hold of it instead

3.4

Parnell to Pietersen, no run, Pietersen rocks forward, then rocks back into a punchy defence. Doubtless wary of who is the non-striker, he roars no louder than he might otherwise

3.5

Parnell to Pietersen, 1 run, driven to mid-on and he sets off. Shah's a little slow out of the blocks - natch - but they're home

England 16/2   KP Pietersen 10* (10b 2x4)
4.1

Kallis to Pietersen, no run, straight and nudged to leg

4.2

Kallis to Pietersen, FOUR, too straight and worked off his pads with a charge down the wicket by Pietersen - Botha makes a hash of it at fine-leg, much to the crowd's delight. Great, triumphant noise

4.3

Kallis to Pietersen, FOUR, down the pitch and pulls it just wide of the keeper - four more!

4.4

Kallis to Pietersen, no run, a massive swing and a miss! Careless shot really

4.5

Kallis to Pietersen, 1 run, flicked to leg - and they take the single

England 25/2   KP Pietersen 19* (15b 4x4)
5.1

Morkel to Pietersen, no run, good line, cutting back into the right hander

5.2

Morkel to Pietersen, OUT, what a catch, what a stunner from van der Merwe! A full toss, Pietersen tried to smash it over mid-on but couldn't loft it and van der Merwe dived to his left to take it aerially, almost behind him, with two hands. Fantastic snaffle!

KP Pietersen c van der Merwe b Morkel 19 (20m 17b 4x4 0x6) SR: 111.76

England 25/3   KP Pietersen 19 (17b 4x4)
