Charl Langeveldt805907.37268111
Andre Nel1014734.70346020
7.2 to SC Ganguly, edged and gone! Nel strikes with just his second delivery, getting Ganguly to reach across and drive, with no footwork again, an average good-length delivery into the gloves of Boucher behind the stumps. 24/1
11.1 to G Gambhir, edged and thats a smart catch at second slip! Gambhir, like Ganguly, doesnt move his feet and reaches away from the body to a fullish delivery and this time Kallis holds onto a good catch, moving to his left, and it was travelling at some speed. 36/2
43.2 to R Dravid, yorker does the trick! Dravid stands rooted, in that same odd groove that engulfed him all of last over, and flashes the bat at it, losing one hand off it, and leg stump goes for a walk, Nel loves it. 194/3
Andrew Hall1014024.00343000
46.1 to Yuvraj Singh, full outside off stump, Yuvraj stands rooted and swings across the line, finding Kallis at mid-on, who takes a simple catch. 213/5
48.3 to KD Karthik, cleaned up! Karthik makes room and looks to drill this through the off side, but the balls not on for that shot, too full, and it hits the stumps. 234/6
Vernon Philander823704.62274000
Jacques Kallis402025.0090020
49.2 to RG Sharma, looking to clear midwicket, Sharma swings across the line, the bat closes in his hands and he fails to make contact, the ball knocking back leg stump. 240/7
49.6 to RR Powar, all over! Powar stands there and chips it into the hands of de Villiers moving around from cover, almost colliding with Philander, coming in from mid-off, smiles between the two and Kallis gets his second with the final ball. 242/8

Zaheer Khan1014614.60407000
34.3 to MV Boucher, and the bowling change works, as Zaheer lands one short of a length marginally outside leg stump, the ball catches Boucher hopping back in the crease, but to the naked eye it seemed that ball was carrying over the stumps. 165/5
RP Singh804515.62294060
12.5 to AB de Villiers, edged and taken this time! RP bowls a pretty ordinary delivery, short and moving away but de Villiers stands his ground and chases it, getting a thick edge that Karthik, diving full stretch to his right, holds on to in front of Tendulkar. 56/1
Sourav Ganguly402606.50124000
Piyush Chawla1004734.70335010
19.5 to MN van Wyk, got 'em! Chawla tosses it up, getting it to dip and spin, and van Wyk is beaten by the turn as he looks to just turn it fine, the leading edge lobs up to cover where Sharma holds an easy catch. 99/2
21.1 to HH Gibbs, bowled 'em neck and crop! Chawla you beauty! Tosses up a leg break this time, which pitches on the stumps and doesnt spin, but sneaks through the big gap between bad and pad to clip off stump,Gibbs was clueless. 107/3
39.4 to AJ Hall, got 'em! That's a crucial breakthrough for India. Full again and Hall drives straight to short cover. Dravid had positioned himself there just before that, going from first slip, and it goes straight to him. He juggles but takes in on the second try. Hall departs and India are cock-a-hoop. Piyush strikes another big blow. And is he loving it!. 190/6
Ramesh Powar1003913.90281000
24.5 to JP Duminy, and he goes sweeping! Powar bravely tosses it up on leg stump again, and Duminy cant resist sweeping with the spin, failing to keep it low and Tendulkar gobbles it up at deep midwicket. 124/4
