Doug Bollinger1006426.40247020
0.1 to HM Amla, what a start for Australia. Amla has leading-edged it back to Bollinger. Shaun George wants to check with a replay if Bollinger has overstepped. Replays show he is fine. Amla looks to play the shot that pays his bills, a flick off the pads, but he is a microsecond too early. Remember he himself said he expected a slow wicket. The leading edge is taken, and Bollinger accepts a dolly back. 0/1
49.3 to JP Duminy, he has hit the full toss straight down Smith's throat at midwicket. Smith doesn't realise it is a catch, and wants to throw at the non-striker's end. He has a surprised look on his face as neither the non-striker wants to run nor the bowler wants the throw. I think Smith was ready in case it is called no-ball for height. 300/6
Mitchell Johnson1005605.60253110
Pat Cummins1017317.30298210
46.1 to DA Miller, and strikes right away. Miller is gone after playing a forceful, momentum-grabbing innings. He backs away, trying to hit it over the off side, the ball is short of a length, and angles away. A thick edge is taken, and settles with Haddin. 264/5
Shane Watson3.502005.2192000
Xavier Doherty1004314.30364100
30.5 to F du Plessis, he has walked past this one. This is superbly bowled. He jumps out of the crease again, Doherty gets a little bit of drift, a little of dip, which opens him up slightly. He is not close to the pitch now, and ends up feeling for the ball. It pitches one a length in front of leg, turns away, beats the bats and the stumps. Haddin does the rest. 157/4
Michael Clarke0.102012.0000010
Steven Smith602414.00190100
25.5 to GC Smith, Smith reviews this, Steven that is. Graeme has once again tried that cute reverse-sweep, misses, Haddin and Steven go up immediately. Umpire says no. Smith reviews immediately. The replays suggest a tiny little noise noise as the ball passes the glove, but there is no visual confirmation in normal replays. The Hot Spot, though, confirms a touch on the glove, and off goes Graeme. 142/2

Dale Steyn1005725.70306010
45.1 to BJ Haddin, du Plessis has been superb in the field, and provides a finishing touch here. Haddin lofts a length ball straight down, du Plessis runs to his left from long-on, and takes it head high. It was a flat and quick hit. 191/8
49.6 to XJ Doherty, Bowled out off the last ball. Full toss outside off, drives with an open face, Duminy catches it at point, and hands it over to the leg umpire, who at the moment is at point because the left-hand batsman is on strike. Doherty's average takes a blow, he had a great chance of ending not-out. 223/10
Lonwabo Tsotsobe803224.00273000
3.5 to RT Ponting, du Plessis is claiming a low catch at cover-point. Ponting is not moving. This is short, angling away, game for cut, but the tennis-ball bounce means it comes slower and higher. Ponting ends up hitting uppishly and in front of square. Replays show he has been taken. Clean as a whistel, low in front of him. 34/1
35.1 to SR Watson, and on cue Tsotsobe strikes, and that's the game. Slower ball, 118ks, on a length, middle and leg, Watson clears the front leg to go over cow corner, is early into the shot, and ends up dragging it straight to deep square. They all surround Lopsy. 156/5
Morne Morkel1022242.20462000
6.1 to MJ Clarke, Morne Morkel bowls a beauty. They say hit the top of off, Morne bowls just by top of off. You can't do much more than defend these balls. Clarke plays for the angle, but misjudges the angle and gets the edge. Graeme Smith's bucket hands at first slip do the rest. 37/2
31.3 to DA Warner, just too much pressure of the asking rate I suppose. And Morkel is not the bowler you can have your way with. This time the bounce gets a touch big, Warner's pull generates a hefty top edge, Boucher goes back towards short fine leg, and catches this swirling ball over his shoulder. Had to drag this pull from outside off. 133/4
38.5 to SPD Smith, Smith will leave without a boundary to his name, thanks to a lovely catch from Duminy. And the lovely PE folk sing, "JP jou lekker ding" [The good thing]. Smith lofts this for what seems is six, Duminy sets himself up at the long-on fence, and takes an overhead catch while making sure he doesn't touch the rope. 175/6
46.6 to DE Bollinger, Bollinger tries to hit, is early into this slower ball, short of a length outside off. All he manages is a lob to cover. Four-for for Morne. Just reward for wonderful bowling. 200/9
Johan Botha1004214.20272000
43.6 to MG Johnson, Johnson gives himself room, trying to go over cover, and is yorked. Full, fast, low. Timber. 190/7
