38.1 to NC Johnson, pulling, in the air, to the square leg area. 170/3
38.4 to ADR Campbell, LBW first ball, Campbell's batting form is looking as equally shakey as his captaincy form, ball seaming into the pads, pitched on leg and straightened down the line, Shepherd gives it. 175/4
46.4 to GJ Whittall, one step down the wicket, ferocious drive, hit very hard, but direct to Cullinan at cover, merely had to get his hands into place and not be blown backwards by the ball. 214/6
Steve Elworthy603215.33225010
13.4 to GW Flower, straight ball outside the off stump, Flower plays with all the footwork of a New Zealander, outside edge from a cover drive straight to the 1st and only slip. 65/1
Lance Klusener903614.00331111
30.4 to MW Goodwin, aimed at the off stump, quick with a bit of bounce, poor cross bat shot, looping it for an easy catch for Kirsten at mid on. 131/2

0.1 to G Kirsten, ball rises awkwardly, fended away by Kirsten poorly, outside edge spoons up for a great diving forward catch by Andy Whittall. 0/1
8.2 to JH Kallis, away swinger, then gets some out seam, Kallis lunging at the wide drive, outside edge, easy catch for the keeper, the South Africans are in terrubble. 25/4
10.1 to WJ Cronje, quick ball, yorker, aimed at the off stump, Cronje just too late playing the defence, ball cannons into the off stump, what a game. 34/5
Heath Streak913533.88392141
7.3 to MV Boucher, short of a length, ball angling straight in, Boucher with a poor flick across the line, into the rear pad, struck high, but near the stumps, Shepherd gives him out. 25/3
11.4 to JN Rhodes, too quick for the batsmen, seaming in, Rhodes leaning over it, trapped in front of middle and off, what a sensation. 40/6
42.2 to S Elworthy, slow ball, slightly overpitched outside the off stump, smacked to the covers, Whittall the Andy snares it, Zimbabwe are nearly there. 150/9

41.2 to SM Pollock, smacked so hard and low, heading for a 6! no! the magic man Henry Olonga appears from out of view that take a terrific catch just inside of the boundary and in front of the sightscreen. 149/8
