Zaheer Khan302618.6684010
19.2 to MV Boucher, Caught at the long-off boundary. It was full, it was the slower one, and it was around the off stump, Bouch flayed it hard and high to left of RP who holds a good catch running around the boundary.. 120/5
RP Singh2021110.5044000
1.4 to HH Gibbs, ah! the commentator's curse. He gets a fatal inside edge. It was a heavily packed off-side as Dhoni had moved an extra fielder after the previous four and Gibbs went for the leg side. Mistake. It wasn't all that short and it was outside off stump, Gibbs went for the pull and dragged it back to his stumps.. 13/1
Ishant Sharma10606.0031000
Ravindra Jadeja30913.00100000
17.2 to AB de Villiers, AB falls after a very fine knock on a sharply turning track. He rushed down the track, didn't reach the pitch and tried to adjust with a big slog sweep but the ball turned to get the leading edge. Jadeja back-pedaled to get under the ball.. 110/4
Rohit Sharma201507.5021000
Yuvraj Singh402506.2582000
Harbhajan Singh402015.0080000
8.3 to GC Smith, Harbhajan has lured Smith to his demise. Smith was charging out, Harbhajan slowed up the pace, retained the flight but got it to dip rapidly on Smith who lunged out in the end, trying to drag it to the on side and top-edging it high to midwicket. Harbhajan pumps his fist.. 59/2
Suresh Raina10616.0031000
14.4 to JP Duminy, Stumped! Duminy, who never looked in on this spin track, was beaten in the flight as he lunged forward before he was beaten by the turn. Dhoni did the rest. Seeing Duminy struggle, you just have to nod in admiration at how well AB has played on this spin track.. 98/3

Dale Steyn302528.3373010
18.2 to Yuvraj Singh, Big wicket. It was a similar delivery to the previous one; another yorker length delivery outside off stump, Yuvraj tries to square drive initially, gets the bat down in a hurry in the end to jab it away and it deflected to Boucher who dived to his left to take it. The bowler appeals for a catch. Bowden is not sure and goes upstairs. The ball bounced just before the bat hit the ground and the ball took the edge to Boucher, who took it cleanly. The verdict is out.. 106/7
18.5 to Z Khan, Zaheer holes out to AB at long-on. It was full, not yorker length, and Zaheer got under the ball and lofted it high but couldn't clear AB. And then they were two.. 110/8

Johan Botha401634.00110000
6.2 to G Gambhir, And spin does the trick right away. It was flighted around the off stump, Gambhir tried to chip it over extra cover but the ball spun to take the edge and flew towards deep cover. 48/1
8.6 to SK Raina, Spin is king on this wicket. Botha lured Raina into the big hit with a well flighted delivery on the middle and leg stump. Raina went for the big slog sweep but was done in by the turn to edge it high to long-on. Gone! Another failure for the young man.. 55/2
17.2 to Harbhajan Singh, Botha takes out Harbhajan with another full dipping toss. Harbhajan swung it straight to midwicket. 100/6
Roelof van der Merwe401313.25160100
13.3 to YK Pathan, South Africa climb all over India who spin away towards the abyss. Yuvraj stands alone. It was flighted delivery around the off stump, perhaps stopped a touch on Yusuf who pushed it tamely to cover. South Africa roar.. 69/5
Jean-Paul Duminy10313.0050010
9.5 to RG Sharma, SA are doing superbly here. Rohit falls to a spinner now. Very risky shot. He shuffled outside off stump and tried to flick it from there but ended up slicing a dolly of a catch to backward point. 56 for 3 and they are wobbling here. Enter the captain.. 56/3
