Shaun Pollock4052113.0073440
14.2 to MN Samuels, A six and he is gone. Full-pitched, on the off stump line, Samuels goes for a big heave down the ground but ends up scooping it straight to de villiers at long-off.. 152/2
Makhaya Ntini201909.5061200
Johan van der Wath403328.2574000
16.2 to CH Gayle, Gayle is gone after a fast and furious knock. Short in length, on the middle stump line, Gayle, again took out the front leg outside the line and tried a swipe across the line but got an top edge to Boucher. What a whirlwind and violent knock this has been. Take a bow. 178/3
18.2 to S Chanderpaul, Another one goes down. The wickets are suddenly falling in a heap here as West Indies try to hit every ball for a six. Short in length, in the zone outside off, Chanderpaul tries to upper cut it over point but ends up nicking it to Boucher.. 188/5
Morne Morkel403017.5092111
17.3 to DR Smith, Wood on leather but straight to the man at long-off. Full, outside off and Dwayne connected with his big swing down the ground but couldn't clear long-off. Another one goes down as SA claw their way back into the game.. 182/4
Vernon Philander403528.75120310
13.3 to DS Smith, third time lucky for Pollock. Quite similar to the first two deliveries, a tad closer to the body, Smith tries to square-cut and feathers a edge to the 'keeper.. 145/1
19.5 to RR Sarwan, Gone now. Fullish, on the leg and middle, almost yorker length and Sarwan gets under the ball and hits it straight to long-on. 204/6

Ravi Rampaul4052113.0085311
5.2 to GC Smith, fullish and quite straight, Smith comes down the pitch and tries to hit inside-out over cover. Chris Gayle bends low and takes a sharp catch and that's the end of Smith's brave stay at the crease. 54/1
Dwayne Smith2037018.5013150
Fidel Edwards302117.0092040
8.1 to AB de Villiers, very quick and very straight, AB de Villiers closes the face of the bat a bit early in trying to work the ball to the leg side. The ball goes straight up in the air. It goes very, very high and Ramdin, the wicketkeeper, settles under the catch. 88/2
