    7.3 slightly wide and Price goes hard, edging it. Scholtz at first slip jumps to take it high above his head. Great catch 7/1
    9.5 in the channel outside off, Moore hangs his bat out to dry and the ball takes a thickish edge on its way through to a diving Kotze behind the stumps 10/2
    14 full, half hearted drive and scooped tamely to Viret at midwicket 21/3
    31.3 played forward, ball caught the edge and an easy catch for Kotze behind the stumps 70/4
    32.5 looking to guide it down to third man, ball is a bit too close to do so and instead its an edge to Van Schoor at slip 72/5
    38.5 Smuts attempts to get under this and launch it over the deep midwicket boundary. Instead it goes straight down the throat of Erasmus at the boundary, who barely has to move and is able to take it comfortably 83/6
    39.1 edged to first slip, who juggles it a bit but hangs on 83/7
    40.4 attempted sweep - perhaps 83/8 not being the time for it - and misses. Huge appeal from bowler and fielders. Umpires agrees with them and raises the finger 83/9
    39.5 full blooded drive but only connects with the edge of the bat. Easy catch for Kotze behind the stumps 83/8

    21.5 good delivery, a bit of shape, nipping between bat and pad and clipping the stump 39/4
    18.5 full, Scholtz plays over it and the ball clatters into the stumps 33/3
    42.2 driven and edged to Smuts at first slip who takes a good catch at chest height 83/6
    40.2 Viljoen tries to get underneath a decent length delivery, doesn't get much of it and it goes very high. Price walks in from mid off, settles underneath it and takes an easy catch in the end 79/5
    46.1 short, Viret is defending high and it clips the glove on its way through to first slip 94/8
    45.5 attempted drive and an edge. Smuts takes another catch at slip 94/7
    50.1 full and played all over it, middle stump cartwheeling 102/9

    0.5 again full and Pitcher plays all over it. Great bowling, making the man play, and he gets his reward 2/1
    8.5 Magala follows up his indiscrete no ball with a short delivery and has Baard on the back foot, defending. He edges it towards the slip cordon where the other Smuts brother gets in on the catching action behind the wicket 20/2

    11.3 full, play too late and played right over it. Crashes into middle stump and Bell's constant fiddling with the landing area appears to have worked for him 27/3
    13.2 full, straight, on the pads and the entire team goes up in unison in an appeal for LBW. The umpire agrees and raises his finger 34/4
    24 batsman hangs out his bat and the ball catches the edge. It drops slightly on Walters as it carries through, so he has to dive forward. Good catch 70/5
    47.3 a bit silly. Played a reverse sweep straight into the hands of slip 147/7
    28.3 another attempted drive but this time the edge is thinner and it carries straight through to Walters 85/6

    58 attempted drive, edged straight to Ackermann at first slip. His reaction is more one of frustration than celebration after six dropped catches this morning 201/8
    66.2 another leading edge, sky high, right down mid on's throat. Again its Bell and this time he makes no mistake. He hangs on and endures a little ribbing from his teammates, including an exagerratedly late celebration from the man at point 241/9
