    0.3 too good from Steyn. Tight line outside off, found a thin edge, and Boucher pouched the chance 1/1
    3.4 short and nasty, Sadiq was backing away but the ball kept coming, and de Villiers at point pocketed a looping gloved catch 8/4
    2.3 cherry-picking from Steyn. Tighter line, a touch less swing, but more bounce, and a simple snick through to the keeper 5/2
    3.1 regulation dismissal. Tight line, unnerving bounce, a simple edge and Kallis at first slip swallows the catch. That was reminiscent of England at Johannesburg 7/3
    6.5 another short ball, a half-formed pull shot, and that's simply snaffled at midwicket. Another step closer to the end of the road 25/7
    3.6 another one bites the dust! Short again, an aggressive mow, a steepling top-edge, and a running catch for Boucher behind the stumps 12/5
    5.1 that's just brutal. Short again, bangs the splice, loops coolly into the slip cordon, and another mugging of a dismissal 14/6
    7.5 a dab to gully and an instant call, but you can't take on AB de Villiers in that position. An instant gather, an under-arm shy, and there's no need to see that one again 32/8
    13.1 good delivery, tight on off stump, swinging in late to beat the inside-edge, and Ashraf's spirited cameo comes to an end 65/9
    15.6 and that, alas, is the end of that. Another short ball, another mow, and another top-edge for Kallis to snaffle as he back-pedalled to collect the catch at slip 80/10
