Dale Steyn1748014.707612200
64.2 to Shahadat Hossain, gone! Another one down. Just one wicket to go. Fine little snick through to Boucher.. 194/9
Makhaya Ntini19.283241.651035000
14.4 to Imrul Kayes, And Ntini gets the first breakthrough, short and straightish, Kayes gets a outside edge and the ball goes straight to the safe hands off Smith.. 25/1
32.2 to Mehrab Hossain jnr, got him! Excellent delivery angling across the left-hander, so typical of Ntini. He was squared up, following the delivery and edging it straight to Kallis at second slip. 71/4
58.2 to Junaid Siddique, McKenie takes a great catch at gully after Siddique goes for one too many cut-shot. A good innings comes to an end.. 166/7
62.1 to Mashrafe Mortaza, and another one gone. Ntini just pitches it up a bit, the movement off the pitch does the rest and Kallis takes a good low-catch at second slip.. 186/8
Jacques Kallis1243002.50605000
Monde Zondeki1023213.20466000
76.2 to Mushfiqur Rahim, Rahim goes for the big pull-shot again, gets a bit of a top edge and De Villiers runs in from square leg and takes a good diving catch to finally end this innings.. 250/10
Morne Morkel1807344.058480012
22.2 to Tamim Iqbal, gets the fine little snick through to Boucher. Well bowled.. 54/2
24.6 to Mohammad Ashraful, just chipped back to Morkel, just a bit too quick on that shot. Morkel makes no mistake this time and the goes the skipper of Bangladesh.. 57/3
44.3 to Raqibul Hasan, gone! Morkel gets his third, this time the edge flies straight to Smith at first slip and Boucher not diving in front of him again. Well bowled young lad.. 122/5
50.6 to Shakib Al Hasan, and the noball earlier in the over gives him the chance to save this over. Full again, but not that wide, Shakib goes for the cover drive and drags it onto his stumps. Morkel now has four wickets.. 159/6

Mashrafe Mortaza2627412.841199004
2.2 to ND McKenzie, gone! Bangladesh gets the early breakthrough. McKenzie gets a thick edge to backward point who makes a fumble but takes it the third time around.. 3/1
Mahbubul Alam2658513.2612015000
15.2 to GC Smith, the skipper walks. Old habbit of his, going across the line of the ball, the sheer amout of inswing jst caused him to miss and that was hitting middle at the top. Excellent ball but an old technical problem for Smith sticks out it's head again.. 47/2
Shakib Al Hasan2839963.5311512100
40.2 to JH Kallis, straight through the gate and uproots off-stump. A struggling Kallis goes back to the cloaks.. 112/3
44.4 to HM Amla, Amla goes for the forward defence, ball hits the pads and goes on to flick the bat and the ball goes to short cover. Easy catch taken. Huge appeals from the Bangladeshi's, for LBW and the catch, but Amla takes a walk before the umpire even lifts a finger, so that must've been bat.. 134/4
44.6 to AB de Villiers, De Villiers goes down the track on his second ball and as if a replay from the first test he is stumped. Silly silly little boy. That was really very stupid from De Villiers.. 134/5
108.3 to MV Boucher, short and straight, Boucher pushes at the ball and is caught at short-cover. A very good fighting knock comes to an end.. 405/6
108.4 to M Morkel, first ball! Short and straightish, Morkel gets an inside edge onto his pads and the ball bounces into his off-stump.. 405/7
108.6 to M Zondeki, and gone! Unlucky for Shakib, just missing the hat-trick. Same delivery as the previous one, this time just a bit more bounce and the ball just flicks the gloves on the way through to the keeper. 3 wickets in four deliveries.. 405/8
Shahadat Hossain22.228923.989412023
109.5 to M Ntini, Ntini punches the ball with a whole lot of bottom-hand and scoops it up to Ashraful at mid-off. South Africa collapsing here.. 412/9
115.2 to DW Steyn, attempted pull, gets the inside edge and hits the stumps.. 429/10

3.5 to Imrul Kayes, short and just outside off, gets the edge straight to Smith at first slip and he makes no mistake. That will be lunch. Please join us again after lunch for the rest of the day's play.. 8/1
29.1 to Mushfiqur Rahim, what a ball! Just leaves the ball outside off and Ntini swings the ball enough to uproot off-stump. What a sight for a fast-bowler.. 95/7
Jacques Kallis612414.00253000
12.2 to Junaid Siddique, and finally the intimidation pays off, another short and straight one, bouncy, hits the gloves and flies away to point, easy catch.. 37/2
Morne Morkel612123.50273002
15.2 to Tamim Iqbal, gone! Wat a catch! Shortish and wide and takes a swing at it, cuts it backward of point, McKenzie takes a dive to his right and grabs with one hand. Excellent catch there .. 47/3
21.5 to Shakib Al Hasan, quite a shocking delivery gets a wicket, short and very wide, takes a slash at it and goes out to the deep backward point fence where Ntini takes a good catch diving forward.. 77/6
Neil McKenzie10101.0060010
Monde Zondeki4.421022.14242000
34.4 to Shahadat Hossain, short and straight, just guides it to third slip actually. De Villiers makes no mistake.. 127/9
36.4 to Mahbubul Alam, and the fine little edge carrying through to Boucher ends it all. Game, set,match and series for that mater.. 131/10
