View dismissal H Masakadza c †de Villiers b M Morkel 29 69 49 6 0 59.18
15.4 just short of a length, moves enough off the seam, Masakadza is back, no foot work at all, pushes away from the body and gives the edge to de Villiers, poor shot neith forward, back or sideways 47/2
View dismissal V Sibanda c †de Villiers b Ntini 5 25 18 1 0 27.77
5.5 a beauty from Ntini, touch short of a length, angled in, then straightens and lifts off the pitch, and has Sibanda pushing at that about chest high getting the fientest of edges to de Villiers 12/1
View dismissal BRM Taylor c Gibbs b Steyn 44 133 84 3 1 52.38

View dismissal T Taibu c Philander b JA Morkel 43 50 40 4 3 107.50
26.4 short of length on the off, looks to pull from the front foot, gets it high on the bat, also played slightly early, goes high towards fine leg where Philander has to make a meter or two to take a comfortable catch 106/3
View dismissal SC Williams c †de Villiers b Steyn 54 93 50 5 0 108.00
