BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Corey Collymore1004124.10353030
6.6 to GC Smith, oh dear, oh dear, oh dear. That is a terrible stroke. Half a step down the track, trying to hit an outswinger over the top and a thick edge hands the wicketkeeper the simplest of catches. 21/1
43.1 to AB de Villiers, and immediately he strikes as de Villiers tries to cheekily flick one over short fine leg...but he just cannot time it, and there ends a brilliant innings. 261/3
Daren Powell1007807.80276410
Ian Bradshaw1007307.30224320
Dwayne Bravo706919.85157300
49.2 to MV Boucher, a slower ball which comes out as a full toss, Boucher misreads it and skies it back to the bowler who just takes a few steps to his right to take a simple catch. 347/4
Kieron Pollard302006.6661000
Chris Gayle604217.00122200
35.2 to JH Kallis, Gayle strikes! At last the deadlock is broken! Kallis moved back (and then forward) to give himself some room, there, but he didn't make contact as the ball turned back into him and took middle stump. 191/2

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Shaun Pollock803324.12263000
2.1 to S Chanderpaul, early success for South Africa as the ball's placed outside off and that's driven straight into Smith's bucket hands at mid-off for an easy catch. 5/1
24.1 to DJ Bravo, and the move pays off straight away. Short - but not that short - and the batsman doesn't have enough room on the drive to midwicket. Gibbs is all smiles and he points his index finger in the air, because he can. 142/5
Makhaya Ntini1015715.70306100
38.1 to RR Sarwan, goddim, and with him goes any last remnants of hope the West Indies might've had. He tried to take Ntini on, tried to hit him over the top - but his front-footed slap was mistimed straight to Pollock at mid off. 213/8
Andre Nel1005415.40264000
10.6 to DS Smith, good catch! Smith stepped outside leg, and guided it off the face of the bat to de Villiers - twanging hamstring and all - who dived in from point and took an excellent, low catch. Smith wasn't sure that he held it, but de Villiers gave him the thumbs up. 65/2
Andrew Hall904905.44214020
Jacques Kallis803624.50212000
19.4 to BC Lara, oh no, Lara's gone. Good bowling change from Smith, Kallis's slight change of pace causing Lara problems. It was wide of the off stump and, frankly, deserved to be smacked through the covers...but he just couldn't get to the pitch of the ball, and inside-edged onto his stumps. 119/4
29.5 to KA Pollard, awful, awful. A straight one from Kallis, on a good length, and Pollard comes down the track to try to pull that through midwicket, yorks himself, tucks his bat under his arm and he's on his way. Middle peg goes wheeling. 169/6
Graeme Smith5056211.2083410
31.5 to D Ramdin, fine catch from Peterson, the substitute, diving forward at short midwicket. Ramdin flicked it feebly, with no intent, no placement and it bobbled up tantalisingly to Peterson who dived forward, taking it an inch or so from the turf. Made it look very easy. 181/7
45.3 to IDR Bradshaw, goes for it this time and sends slog-sweeps it, sending it looping high - my, what a lovely parabola - but straight to the man at deep deep square leg. 254/9
