Shaun Pollock9.213653.85394000
0.5 to ME Waugh, quicker ball, good bounce, Waugh wasn't expecting it, trying to lean out of the way, ball brushes the gloves, and gone, South Africa off to a fantastic start. 3/1
39.3 to SR Waugh, dabbed at it outside the off stump, looked for the runs to 3rd man, simple outside edge, Boucher is very careful to collect the ball and *then* start celebrating. 158/5
39.6 to TM Moody, off cutter into the pads, the brain signals just had too far to travel down the body, quite plumb, Venkat gives the capital L shaped out signal. 158/6
47.6 to SK Warne, Warne waves his sword outside the off stump, ends up draggin the ball from wide of the off stump and chipping over the mid wicket, well not quite over the mid wicket, Cronje falling back for an excellent catch. 207/7
49.2 to MG Bevan, having a swat at a wide one, bottom edge, to the keeper, and a 5fer for Pollock, finally finding his wicket taking abilities. 213/10
Steve Elworthy1005905.90325212
Jacques Kallis1022712.70462011
16.6 to AC Gilchrist, slashing a wild cut shot, gets the long top edge, easily swallowed by Donald at the 3rd man, doesn't have to move. 68/4
Allan Donald1013243.20392010
13.1 to RT Ponting, driving thru the covers, Ponting as usual all defence or all attack, in the air and direct to the cover fielder. 54/2
13.6 to DS Lehmann, short ball, leaving the batsman, Lehmann with some horrid disturbing stuff, for mature viewers only, high defence, just lets it clip the shoulder, attempted to withdraw the bat into his ample chest. 58/3
48.1 to PR Reiffel, slight inswing on the yorker, Reiffel misjudging it totally, trying to defend off his middle stump, and the ball cannons into the off stump. 207/8
48.3 to DW Fleming, past the outside edge, into the stumps, the off stump in particular cops the bruising, 3 wickets in 4 balls. 207/9

Glenn McGrath1005115.10284110
48.2 to MV Boucher, and gone, yorker knocks the middle stump out of the ground, Boucher making room for himself and plays the diagonal bat over the top of it. 196/8
Damien Fleming8.414014.61335030
45.5 to SM Pollock, angling in, inside edge onto the stumps, Pollock's mini slog is over, but I dare say Australia would prefer the wicket of the other guy. 183/7
Paul Reiffel802813.50323000
40.3 to JN Rhodes, rhodes going for the big pull, realising the last 10 overs were upon him, lofts too high, or perhaps not high enough, bevan runs in from the deep square leg, good safe running catch. 145/5
Shane Warne1042942.90421110
12.2 to HH Gibbs, what a ball, drifting away and pitching outside the leg stump, possibly grabs the foot marks, and then some wicket turn across Gibbs and it clips the off stump, Gibbs doesn't leave, refuses to believe he was bowled. 48/1
14.1 to G Kirsten, amazing, he does it again, reasonable similar ball to Gibbs, drifting away and then grabbing a foot mark, Kirsten sweeping, totally inappropriate, ball was too short, well missed, and into the left hander's off stump it goes. 53/2
14.3 to WJ Cronje, oh dear, South Africans giving Warne a testimonial it seems, pitched up, near the toes, Cronje attempting to turn it onto the on side, edges to the 1st slip, 3 wickets in 8 balls. 53/3
44.5 to JH Kallis, deceived in the air, ball pops up, Waugh takes the easy catch above his head in the covers. 175/6
