James Anderson402215.50133020
14.1 to SM Pollock, wheels coming off a touch, here, Pollock shaped to hook, Prior hanging on with ease, not having to move too much to take the ball. 91/5
Stuart Broad403739.25127020
1.1 to JP Duminy, what a start, super delivery, on a length it seamed away and then swung back in, Duminy played a nothing shot and a thin edge was taken by Prior. 8/1
4.1 to GC Smith, Smith tries to pull but gets a massive top edge, the ball swirls in the twilight, Prior leaves it to Mascarenhas at long leg and he takes it with no alarms. 33/2
18.1 to VD Philander, the ball pitches outside off; Philander, looking to pull, goes down on one knee and drags an inside edge on to off-stump. 133/7
Andrew Flintoff402325.75123010
5.1 to AB de Villiers, another loose drive from de Villiers but this time he only succeeds in getting a thin edge and Prior leaps around like Zeberdee as he takes the catch. 42/3
19.6 to JA Morkel, Snape takes the catch at cover to round off the innings - a decent effort, running round and diving forward, completing the move with a roll. 154/8
Dimitri Mascarenhas302418.0051100
15.1 to JM Kemp, another pull which doesn't come off and skies high. Now, Prior did very well there to make the call in a sea of fielders, and cut right through them to take a difficult catch, leaping forward at the last second. 94/6
Chris Schofield403418.5091310
13.3 to MV Boucher, driven up to long-on, Pietersen didn't have to move, three yards inside the boundary. 91/4

Shaun Pollock411724.25141000
0.4 to LJ Wright, half forward, loose drive, the ball loops to cover who takes it above his head at a very gentle pace. 0/1
4.5 to PD Collingwood, uncertain shot with minimal footwork which flies right at slip who clings on to a good catch. 27/3
Makhaya Ntini402907.25104010
Morne Morkel402015.00122000
17.4 to JN Snape, that's it for Snape; the pressure told after all, with a drive straight to cover. 113/6
Johan van der Wath403017.5082100
18.3 to A Flintoff, came right across again - a familiar effort from him this innings - and he's castled by a straight one, the ball taking the top of off. 120/7
Vernon Philander2022011.0030200
Albie Morkel201226.0041010
12.4 to MJ Prior, outside off, Prior goes for the inside-out drive and sends the ball high and over to the deep cover who comes in to hold a fairly straightforward catch. 82/4
14.3 to OA Shah, cleaned him up with a straight one, Shah swinging away to midwicket with a forceful pull... but he missed. 98/5
