Mashrafe Mortaza2246913.1310310003
86.4 to HM Amla, gone! Amla seems to just have played around it a bit, got good swing and some movement off the deckand Amla edges it right into his stumps. Good innings comes to an end.. 327/2
Mahbubul Alam24.586222.491198001
87.3 to GC Smith, and another one! Full and just outside off, nips back and Smith tries to go through the leg side again, misses and the ball cannons into his off-stump. Another good innings from the skipper.. 327/3
122.5 to M Ntini, and that is the end. Ntini edges the ball through to the keeper. South Africa declare their innings.. 441/9
Shahadat Hossain25112515.0010117007
34.6 to ND McKenzie, and there he goes. McKenzie goes for the big square drive after Hossain bowls a wide half-volley. Scoops it just enough so that backward point can grab it out of the air.. 102/1
Shakib Al Hasan38413053.421479200
97.5 to JH Kallis, gone! Kallis, out of his nature, goes for the big shot over the top, and hits the ball straight down mid-on's throaght.. 352/4
101.3 to AB de Villiers, gone, another stupid dismissal. De Villiers takes on the spinner on a deck with a lot of turn and bounce, he comes down the track and gets a fine little edge, either way he was 3 metres out of his crease and the keeper dislodged the bails just to be safe.Goodbye.. 365/5
111.2 to MV Boucher, and that's another one! Straight delivery deceiving Boucher who plays around it and top of off-stump is hit.. 404/6
115.3 to M Morkel, and there goes another one. Morkel attempts the big sweep shot, gets the top edge and skyes the ball. Ashraful has to make some ground to get to that and does well. Good catch.. 420/7
117.6 to DW Steyn, Steyn goes for the big heave over the top. Gets a thick edge and the ball flies to point who takes a good diving catch.. 427/8

Makhaya Ntini822032.50403000
15.5 to Shakib Al Hasan, fifth wicket for the South Africans, Shakib tries to cut the ball away again, but too close to his body and edges it straight to De Villiers at third slip and he makes no mistake.. 50/5

Morne Morkel805526.87329045

34.1 to Mushfiqur Rahim, full and straight, plays all around it and hits him smack in front.. 148/9
36.4 to Shahadat Hossain, right in the blockhole, that's where you should bowl to a tail-ender. Bowls middle stump.. 153/10

Dale Steyn1846353.50839000
2.3 to Imrul Kayes, unlucky, gets an inside edge onto his stumps, was slightly hesitant on whether top play or leave the ball, just let the bat hang out there and get the inside edge.. 13/1
32.4 to Shakib Al Hasan, another short one, attempts to cut the ball away but only manages a fine little snick through to Boucher who makes no mistake.. 81/5
36.6 to Naeem Islam, gone! Just pushed at a delivery just outside off, maybe just a bit too late on the shot there. Beaten by pace.. 92/7
40.5 to Mashrafe Mortaza, this time Steyn doesn't miss, uproots off-stump and that's eight down, two to go.. 108/8
48.5 to Shahadat Hossain, finally gets the full straight delivery. Hossain swings again, but this time Steyn hits the stumps.. 152/9
Makhaya Ntini1681921.18842000
