Pat Cummins1004914.90316020
42.3 to F du Plessis, du Plessis falls to an extremely slow slower ball! He was looking to play a shot into the off side but by the time the ball got to him his bat had swung round and instead he lifted it out straight to the man at deep square. 185/4
Shane Watson1004204.20261010
Mitchell Johnson1003723.70302000
47.1 to JP Duminy, he strikes straight away, and a frustrated Duminy is caught close to the boundary at midwicket! He got a good connection on the slog to leg, but couldn't hit it far enough to get it over Ponting. 205/5
49.2 to MV Boucher, Boucher holes out to long off! He sliced right across the ball, and presented an easy catch to Warner. 218/6
Xavier Doherty903323.66322100
13.2 to GC Smith, great catch! This time Hussey makes it, and it's a blinder. Smith plays the sweep and doesn't keep the ball down. It skims towards deep midwicket where Hussey races in then dives forward. 58/1
33.4 to JH Kallis, gone! Reward for Doherty and Australia. Kallis tries to break the shackles with a sweep and, like Smith, gets a top edge which, unlike Smith, goes high in the air before being well taken by Marsh inches from the deep square boundary. 141/3

Dale Steyn1004414.40363030
41.5 to BJ Haddin, time for another twist?! Haddin couldn't restrain himself. He stood on leg stump and tried to clear the off side but picked out deep cover. 194/6
Morne Morkel9.316116.42326310
6.6 to DA Warner, gone! Morkel hits back. Angled across outside off, Warner was in two minds and in the end the ball runs off the toe end as he tries to leave. 38/1
Johan Botha1012112.10431010
14.3 to RT Ponting, there's another one! A soft dismissal for Ponting. Botha floated one down on off stump and Ponting just popped it straight back into his waiting hands. South Africa are right back into this now. 82/3
Jacques Kallis501723.40181000
13.3 to SR Watson, chopped on! Kallis strikes, and Watson falls for 49. He was just trying to run this down to third man, but it seemed in to him, taking a thick inside edge and cannoning into the stumps. This could revive South Africa. 78/2
44.5 to MG Johnson, gone! This game refuses to die. Johnson chases a length ball outside off and gets an edge which carries low to Boucher. It was a good catch.. 213/7
Jean-Paul Duminy712924.14261120
25.1 to MJ Clarke, first ball! What a start for Duminy. Round the wicket, full on the stumps, Clarke goes for a drive and gets an inside edge into his pads which then cannons into the stumps. 130/4
34.1 to SE Marsh, bowled him! Duminy strikes straight after the interval. Duminy arrowed one down at middle, Marsh gave himself some room but the ball rushed straight on and clattered into middle stump. Just 67 needed by Australia, this is going to get tight. 156/5
