0.3 to RE Levi, and this goes straight through Levi's attempted drive and flicks out leg stump, what a start for Doherty. He seemed to get outside leg stump, exposing all three, this time trying to drive a good length ball into the covers, but it skidded on past his stroke and cleaned him up, the miserable run continues for Levi. 0/1
2.1 to JH Kallis, oh edged and gone and Doherty gets another. It's a cracking delivery, tossed up on a length just outside off, Kallis pushed at it and got a thin edge to Wade to held the chance very well, it was a decent edge. What a start for Doherty, what a selection. Beautifully bowled, flighted nicely and a little turn this time gets the edge of Kallis. 8/2
10.1 to JP Duminy, and gets another one straight away! Duminy down the track gets beaten and is stumped by a country mile. More lovely flight by Doherty, drew Duminy down the pitch and he was no where near it, tried to adjust, I think the ball ended up going between his legs and my grandfather could have made that stumping with a cup of tea in one hand and a scone in the other. 64/4

5.5 to HM Amla, step across the stumps, goes to pull and gloved behind! Amla falls and Watson does the job again. A shorter ball, again not coming on as the batsman might expect, Amla went across his stumps to pull into the leg side, but was through with the stroke too soon and gloved a ball to Wade and walked straight off, what a blow for Australia. 33/3
14.1 to AB de Villiers, or not as the case may be! De Villiers slaps this straight to extra cover and is caught easily! It was a slower ball on middle stump, de Villiers backed away to try and go over the off side but misread the pace of the ball and could only chip it straight to the fielder who claimed a simple chance at chest height. 86/5

3.1 to DA Warner, Gets him! Warner goes, Warner, keen to attack after a quiet first three overs, made some room to go over the top, landed slightly short of a good length on leg and middle, he was aiming to go over extra cover, appeared to get a thin edge but straight onto the stumps, South Africa have struck early. 10/1

13.5 to SR Watson, this time he holes out, wanted to finish it off in a hurry, tossed up from Peterson and Watson lofts that but doesn't get the distance, straight down long-on's throat, Parnell takes an easy catch. 109/2
