    9.6 van der wath strikes! Vincent backs away and misses completely, the ball clips the top of the stumps and the bails go flying 76/3
    8.2 Morkel strikes! pitched up on off stump, McCullum gives room and tries to drive through cover, fails to get to the pitch of it, the ball gets a thick outside edge and goes to Boucher 68/1
    8.6 double strike by Morkel! short of a length on off stump, the ball cuts in a touch, Taylor tries to cut square and gets a thin edge through to Boucher 70/2
    12.1 The elder brother joins in the fun. Full in length and Styris slices it, off the bottom-half of the bat, straight to de Villiers at long-on. 90/4

    16.1 Timber! Oram backs away to the leg-side, the ball heads towards the middle stump and he couldn't connect with his swipe across the line. Gone. 131/5
    16.5 A run out now. South Africa are applying the squeeze. Full and drifting to the pads, Nathan misses his flick shot and the ball goes towards fine leg. Van der Wath swoops on the ball and fires in an accurate throw to Boucher who whips the bails off. Nathan is short of the crease. Run out in his first international game. 132/6
    17.5 The brothers are having a party. It's either bowled or caught Morkel. Short in length, on the middle and leg, pulled to left of midwicket where Albie takes a step before flinging himself in the air and catches it with both hands. 137/7
    18.2 Morne picks his fourth wicket. Wonder what the brothers ate today. It kicks up from short of length, outside the off stump, holds its line and all Bond could offer was a poke. Fatal as Boucher dives to his right to take a sharp catch 139/8

    2.1 Bond strikes! good length, angling across the left hander, Smith sticks his bat out at it and the thin outside edge is pouched by McCullum 14/1
    7.1 short, outside off, Gibbs pulls but doesnt get the desired distance, Jeetan patel at deep square leg gets under it and manages to catch it while looking directly at the sun, the shades certainly helped 45/3
    3.1 big edge and taken! short of a length outside off and wide, de Villiers stays rooted to the crease and tries to slash over point, the ball gets the top half of the bat and an easy take by McCullum. Bad ball, poor stroke 17/2

    15.2 Gillespie takes out Boucher. From round the stumps, angling across Boucher who goes for a swipe across the line but nicks it behind. The crowd is stunned into silence. McCullum is happy, runs to his right to throw the ball high in the air. The NZ camp is thrilled 110/4
