    2.6 slower ball, well bowled, 127ks, and Karthik is early into the shot, and ends up hitting straight to Amla at mid-off. First breakthrough 22/1
    5.2 that's a brute, dug in short, Vijay is on the front foot, and the ball rises and kisses his glove on the way. Very well bowled Tsotsobe, surprised Vijay who is primarily a front-foot batsman 40/2
    27.6 edged and taken! Steyn gets another! Kohli looks to steer this one down to third man, the bowl holds its line a touch, and gets a regulation edge for a regulation catch for Boucher 157/5
    24.6 he has deposited a leg-side full toss straight down deep square leg's throat. Sharma goes back looking painfully at the toe end of his bat, Tsotsobe and Botha are delighted, though 135/3
    27.2 what a superb effort from Boucher! looks to whip this to on side, gets a big edge and Boucher dives full length to his right to pull this off one-handed 156/4
    36.2 another full toss gets Botha a wicket! on off, Raina goes inside out, but finds Parnell at wide long-off. Parnell seems to have moved in too much, but takes it nicely overhead 233/7
    31.2 he is gone nonetheless! slightly slower delivery, goes for the big hit straight down, gets too much under it and holes out to long-off 179/6
    44.3 edged and taken! fourth catch to go with one stumping for Boucher, looks to run this down to third man and gets the edge. ODI catch No. 399 for Boucher 275/10
    37.2 that's a plumb lbw! bowled from round the stumps, pitches leg, turns away, beats the bat and hits him on the back leg and in front of stumps. No doubts about that 237/8
    43.3 stumped off a full toss! high full toss, Mithun misses the shot, and loses balance as the ball settles in Boucher's gloves. Boucher does well to catch him in that instant. Ian Gould calls no-ball first, then signals as if to call for the TV umpire, but changes his mind and gives him out regardless. Smoewhere there he must have realised that it's a spinner bowling and hence it's a no-ball. Well done all round, Ian Gould 273/9
