Fall of wickets: 1-24 (Hashim Amla, 4.4 ov), 2-52 (Graeme Smith, 9.4 ov), 3-84 (Morne van Wyk, 15.5 ov), 4-95 (Jacques Kallis, 20.3 ov), 5-117 (Faf du Plessis, 26.3 ov), 6-204 (Colin Ingram, 39.4 ov), 7-269 (Jean-Paul Duminy, 49.4 ov)
4.4 to HM Amla, and now he is gone, Amla goes for the upper cut, something he had attempted two deliveries earlier, but too much of a thick outside edge this one as he connects from outside off stump, the ball swirls quickly wide of third man where young Dockrell dives to his left and pulls off the stunner, it did not lodge cleanly in his hands but he kept them close to his chest, and managed to hold on as he fell. 24/1
39.4 to CA Ingram, bowled 'im! Trent provides just the inspirational moment Ireland needed, pushing one fuller and straighter. The ball kept a little low, but Ingram was right back when he should have been forward and swiped across the line with no great certainty. No chicken dance from Johnston yet ... actually he looks quite angry!. 204/6
49.4 to JP Duminy, Duminy is out for 99! He tried to go down the ground, but sliced at it and got underneath the ball, lifting it very high ... two fielders converge and one of them dives and slides to pull off a great one-handed catch. Guess who? Yep, it's Kevin O'Brien!. 269/7
15.5 to MN van Wyk, it couldn't get through the great man, but it has consumed van Wyk, flighted and went straight on, he had backed away for the cut, not short enough for the shot, not wide enough at all, and to his horror it kept a bit low too, and beat the attempted cut to crash in to off stump, lovely bowling, the adventure of van Wyk at Eden is over. 84/3
26.3 to F du Plessis, guided straight to slip, that's the way it is done during training, it was flighted outside off stump, drifted away from the batsman a touch, he came forward, opened the face of the bat and steered it at a nice catchable height to slip, South Africa are in trouble now, Johnston is delighted. 117/5

Fall of wickets: 1-8 (William Porterfield, 1.6 ov), 2-19 (Paul Stirling, 3.3 ov), 3-35 (Niall O'Brien, 8.5 ov), 4-51 (Ed Joyce, 11.5 ov), 5-92 (Kevin O'Brien, 21.3 ov), 6-92 (Gary Wilson, 21.5 ov), 7-107 (Alex Cusack, 25.5 ov), 8-123 (Trent Johnston, 29.5 ov), 9-137 (John Mooney, 32.4 ov), 10-141 (George Dockrell, 33.2 ov)
1.6 to WTS Porterfield, that will do, Morne gets the breakthrough early on, lures Porterfield in to the drive, but driving morne is fraught with danger at the best of times because of that short of a good length he bowls, this one moved away after angling in around off stump, and the outside edge went safely to first slip, the South African slip cordon is as safe as a bank. 8/1
3.3 to PR Stirling, Stirling does what du Plessis did earlier, guides one straight to slip, second slip this time, this one came in from short of a length, he was caught in the crease and had a weak dab at it, and it looped slowly in the air to settle in to Jacques Kallis' hands. 19/2
33.2 to GH Dockrell, superb catch from van Wyk! Morkel slammed one down much shorter, it leapt up at young Dockrell and took the edge of the shoulder of the bat, the keeper tumbled to his right to complete the dismissal and that's the end of Ireland. 141/10
8.5 to NJ O'Brien, Kallis gets one now, Niall went charging down the track, got beside the line of one going across him, looking to go over extra cover, but got a faint tickle on its way through to the keeper. 35/3
32.4 to JF Mooney, just one more to go now, Kallis comes round the wicket, Mooney drives and the edge goes straight through to van Wyk. He beat him a couple of times in the last over, now he gets one to touch the bat as Mooney drives rooted to the crease. 137/9
11.5 to EC Joyce, Joyce goes for the sweep to a delivery that angles in, misses and is hit on the pads, umpire Dharmasena sends him back, but Ireland go for the review, and that would have hit middle and leg, Ireland are reeling here. 51/4
21.3 to KJ O'Brien, gone this time! O'Brien was aiming for long-on but sliced across the ball, skying it up for Hashim Amla to take an easy catch at long-off. No O'Brien show tonight .... 92/5
21.5 to GC Wilson, arm ball from Peterson, Wilson is wrapped on the pads to spark a huge appeal ... and he's given! After a quick chat, they review it, but to no avail. Ireland lose both of their set batsmen in the space of three balls, and they're sliding now. 92/6
25.5 to AR Cusack, Peterson's got another one! Well with the required rate rising they had to try and target the boundary, no point just knocking it around. Cusack took a couple of steps down and tried to mow it down the ground, but the ball spun away from him, taking a thick edge and swirling up for a catch in the covers. 107/7
29.5 to DT Johnston, caught behind! Johnston presses forward and again the ball doesn't spin an inch, taking a clear outside edge and nestling in van Wyk's right glove. 123/8
