Dale Steyn9.405055.17353120
40.1 to G Gambhir, caught at mid-off! Are India slipping again? Gambhir backs away to a slower ball, and is foxed by the change of pace. He ends up chipping it in the air towards Kallis, who takes a sharp catch diving forward. 268/3
40.3 to YK Pathan, South Africa on fire as Yusuf is caught at cover. Yusuf stood in his crease and just threw his bat at a length delivery, he sliced it in the air towards cover, where Smith took the catch over his head on the edge of the circle. 268/4
46.5 to Harbhajan Singh, bowled him! India continue to crash and burn. Harbhajan backs away and swings aimlessly. Steyn had bowled a dead straight yorker. Middle stump takes a hit. 320 is par on this pitch, will India get that much?. 293/7
48.3 to A Nehra, another one falls! Nehra drives a full ball straight at Smith at cover. There is a sense of bewilderment in Nagpur. India were 267 for 1 ... they are 296 for 9 now.. 296/9
48.4 to MM Patel, bowled him! Steyn takes five as India have imploded in the most spectacular fashion. A full and fast delivery does for Munaf. The stumps take another hit.. 296/10
Morne Morkel705918.421810001
39.4 to SR Tendulkar, caught at point! Tendulkar tried to clear his front leg and smash the ball down the ground, but he didn't make proper contact, slicing it high in the air towards point, where Duminy took a few steps back and held the catch.. 267/2
Jacques Kallis804315.37224010
42.6 to Yuvraj Singh, Yuvraj holes out to long-on off a full toss, would you believe it. South Africa are thrilled. It was a friendly full toss and Yuvraj wanted to clear the boundary, he got plenty of height on it but no distance. It falls into Botha's hands on the boundary. Epic fightback by South Africa.. 283/5
Robin Peterson905225.77203120
43.6 to V Kohli, bizarre batting, Virat pushes the ball gently back to Peterson, a easy caught and bowled. South Africa are right back in this. Peterson flings the ball in celebration and they are pumped.. 286/6
47.4 to Z Khan, the implosion continues! Morne Morkel you beauty. He runs across to his right, covering lots of ground, slides and takes a superbly-judged catch. Zaheer had come forward and tried to clear the wide long-on boundary. 294/8
Jean-Paul Duminy302909.6643100
Johan Botha903904.33302120
Faf du Plessis302217.3342010
17.4 to V Sehwag, gone! Finally the partnership is broken. It was speared in fast and flat once again, Sehwag stepped away to make room for the cut but the ball didn't turn as much as he might have expected and he was cramped for room. Playing close to the body, he got a thin edge that smashed into the leg stump, flicking both bails into the air. Finally some relief for South Africa!. 142/1

Zaheer Khan1004314.30354100
8.3 to GC Smith, gone! Pitched up, Smith's eyes light up and he launches into a drive but hits it straight to Tendulkar at mid-off. Khan gets Smith once again, he's well and truly won this battle. An early breakthrough - just what India wanted!. 41/1
Ashish Nehra8.406507.50249100
Munaf Patel1006526.50216100
43.6 to MN van Wyk, There's a review, but van Wyk looked stone dead here. He tried to reverse sweep a very full delivery, and was hit on the front pad ... the finger goes up for the second time, he's gone! Replays suggest it would've clipped leg - it was left to the on-field call. If he'd been given not out that decision would have stood too, but that wasn't the case so he's got to go. 247/6
47.5 to J Botha, and then a wicket! Botha had just hit two boundaries and he wanted a third, swinging really hard but the ball swirled up off the top edge over the covers ... Suresh Raina, the substitute fielder, runs across and holds a great catch, the ball coming from behind him. Another one goes, and the match continues to hang in the balance!. 279/7
Yusuf Pathan402005.0060000
Yuvraj Singh804705.87182100
Harbhajan Singh905335.88193110
27.2 to HM Amla, caught behind! There was some extra bounce on that and a bit of turn into Amla, who shaped to cut and was cramped for room. The ball got big on him and the edge was taken sharply. Dhoni flings the ball high in the air in celebration. 127/2
40.3 to AB de Villiers, but he's gone now! It was the orthodox slog sweep this time, he cracked it right out of the middle but didn't get much height in the shot. Kohli dived forward at square to hold the catch above the turf, and Harbhajan waves AB back to the pavilion. India back in the game. 223/4
42.3 to JP Duminy, Duminy falls ... eventually! He charged out again, was beaten as the ball was speared down the leg side. Dhoni fumbled the take, and Duminy, who was several metres down, started back for the crease. Dhoni quickly recovered, picking the ball up and whipping the bails off with the batsman short. 238/5
