Fall of wickets: 1-2 (Brad Haddin, 0.6 ov), 2-11 (Ricky Ponting, 3.3 ov), 3-14 (Michael Clarke, 5.1 ov), 4-19 (David Hussey, 6.6 ov), 5-19 (Michael Hussey, 7.2 ov), 6-40 (James Hopes, 13.1 ov), 7-103 (Mitchell Johnson, 30.4 ov), 8-124 (Callum Ferguson, 36.1 ov), 9-129 (Nathan Bracken, 37.5 ov), 10-131 (Nathan Hauritz, 40.2 ov)
0.6 to BJ Haddin, timber! South Africa have struck early. Short and wide, gets on the back foot to punch it through the covers, gets a big inside edge bang onto the leg stump. 2/1
6.6 to DJ Hussey, Australia are reeling here! Poor shot from David Hussey, good length outside off and the customary away movement, he stays rooted in his crease and without any foot-movement tries to force it through the off side, gets a faint nick and Boucher does the rest. 19/4
36.1 to CJ Ferguson, superb catch, a fierce delivery bowled on a good length on the off stump, jumped off the pitch to catch Ferguson on the gloves as he tried to back away, de Villiers, sensing the opportunity, charged forward from point, dived full length and snapped it inches from the ground. 124/8
40.2 to NM Hauritz, edged and gone! Four each for Parnell and Steyn! Full outside off and gets the late movement again, much closer to the off stump this time, Hauritz goes for the drive, gets a thin edge and Boucher takes a sitter. 131/10
3.3 to RT Ponting, excellent start from South Africa! Parnell got this to land on a good length outside off and it moved away after pitching, bowled at 138.1 kmph, Ponting attempted a drive on the up, got a thick edge and Boucher dived well to his right, stretching to pouch a sharp chance. 11/2
5.1 to MJ Clarke, Parnell is on a roll! Swinging into the right hander, full on middle, gets his front foot across to flick it away through the midwicket region, misses and is struck dead in front of middle and leg. 14/3
7.2 to MEK Hussey, the late movement does him in! It's Parnell's day! Full on leg stump and moved away really late, Hussey was already into the attempted push back towards the bowler, missed it as the ball left him and was struck plumb in front of middle. 19/5
37.5 to NW Bracken, Parnell gets four! Fraction short outside off, chases it, looks to cart it over the in-field on the off side, mistimes it completely and Gibbs has to run just a few steps backwards to take the easiest of catches at cover. 129/9
13.1 to JR Hopes, what say now? Fraction short outside off, is on the back foot to force it through point, gets a thick edge and Johan Botha takes a dolly at first slip. 40/6
30.4 to MG Johnson, done in by the doosra, landed on a good length outside off, slow through the air, Johnson, expecting it to spin away leans forward to defend but the ball turns the other way to strike him on the pads in line with middle and off. 103/7

Fall of wickets: 1-7 (Herschelle Gibbs, 2.6 ov), 2-76 (Graeme Smith, 14.1 ov), 3-93 (Jacques Kallis, 19.2 ov)
2.6 to HH Gibbs, gone! Full, length ball outside off, Gibbs gets forward and drives it straight to Hauritz at cover who holds on to a sharp catch. 7/1
19.2 to JH Kallis, Kallis tries to smash that over mid-off and extra cover, it's in the slot, full outside off stump but ends up getting a faint nick to the keeper. This should slow proceedings down a little. 93/3
14.1 to GC Smith, he strikes immediately! Slower ball bowled on a good length outside off, Smith is into his shot a little too early, the ball stops on him and he ends up chipping a simple catch to Clarke at mid-on. 76/2
