BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Nantie Hayward1615913.68698020
0.3 to W Jaffer, Speared in at the toes. Swung in from wide of the crease, it raps him on the back leg, leaving the umpire in no doubt whatsoever.. 1/1
Morne Morkel1927443.89859023
1.1 to V Sehwag, a blistering yorker, crashed into the base of Sehwag's off stump. Beaten by the swing and pace.. 1/2
9.6 to SR Tendulkar, That's the big one! Sachin Tendulkar does not get the feet moving, pushes at it, gets the edge to 2nd slip, Kemp takes the catch cleanly.. 37/3
20.2 to VVS Laxman, A wide and rising ball has him playing away from the body, tries to steer that over the slips but finds the eager hands of Kemp in the slips who takes a superb catch. 59/4
24.3 to MS Dhoni, EDGED! GONE! The quick men again the undoing of the Indian top order, a ball outside the off and moving away a touch is flayed at only to get the edge to a diving keeper. 69/5
Alfonso Thomas1873912.16885002
77.5 to Harbhajan Singh, And the 79-run partnership is broken. Harbhajan goes for the big drive, scoops it a bit and Rudolph takes the catch at mid-on.. 287/7
Friedel de Wet1845613.11859000
59.1 to SC Ganguly, Gone! Ganguly falls after a valiant knock. The ball landed on a length, shaped away, Ganguly attempted to cut, it bounces a bit more than he expected and he gets a faint tickle to the wicketkeeper. That was a real fighting innings under pressure. A strong statement of intent from the former captain. A super comeback.. 208/6

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Zaheer Khan702223.14322000
2.6 to AN Petersen, EDGED AND TAKEN! Petersen gets a thick edge and Gambhir, the substitute, takes a fine catch at third slip. Great start for the Indians. Rest of South Africa lose both their openers early. 7/2
8.5 to JP Duminy, GONE! No breathing space there. Zaheer fires it in full and straight. HUGE appeal and the umpire had no choice but to give that out. Duminy didn't expect the ball to be so full and missed it completely. Big wicket for the Indians there. Rest of South Africa (32 for 3) are in a similar position like the Indians were yesterday (37 for 3). Can they find a couple of batsmen to revive them?. 32/3
Sreesanth11.435344.54539002
1.1 to JA Rudolph, GONE! First delivery from Sreesanth gets a wicket. Great ball. Just outside off, swings away and bounces at a discomforting height.Rudolph gets the edge and Dhoni takes a fine catch.. 5/1
19.6 to VB van Jaarsveld, Gone! Another one! Full and straight, van Jaarsveld misses and that's hitting middle and leg. As Michael Holding would say, 'if you miss I hit'. Some words are exchanged between Sreesanth and van Jaarsveld, but van Jaarsveld has to go.. 94/6
21.4 to PR Adams, And another lbw! I fancy that one could be going down leg, but OUT is the decision. Sixth lbw victim. Indians are having a ball out there.. 95/8
31.4 to M Hayward, Finito! Edged and gone! Dhoni swallows that one.That's the end of the innings. They stitched and edged together a 32-run partnership for the last wicket.. 138/10
Irfan Pathan411814.50184000
15.2 to MN van Wyk, GONE! Another one! Great going from Pathan. Full and straight, van Wyk misses it after trying to swat across the line. A straight shot might have worked there. That was going on to crash into middle and leg. Classic Pathan delivery.. 67/4
Vikram Singh923533.88414005
18.1 to JM Kemp, Gone! Another lbw! I had my suspicions about the line, maybe was straying down leg, height wasn't an issue, umpire decides that's gone. VRV claims his first wicket on this tour.. 90/5
20.1 to AC Thomas, Gone! Another lbw! Fifth lbw victim of the innings! It's all happening! Singh pings the full and straight line, Thomas tries to go across the line, hits him smack in front. He has to return to the hutch. 94/7
24.4 to M Morkel, Gotcha! VRV takes out Morkel, the man who harassed the Indian batsmen with pace. Cut straight into the hands of Sehwag at point!. 106/9

Morne Morkel1754402.58814011
Alfonso Thomas21.465672.581047002
1.5 to W Jaffer, pair! lovely delivery outside the off stump and Jaffer tamely nicks it straight to the keeper. 'India's search for a Test opener' - the longest story ever wrtten. 3/1
5.5 to V Sehwag, GONE! First LBW of the Indian innings. Sehwag gets a full and straight one, goes across the line and Thomas picks up his second wicket. That's a big blow. India's opening woes continue.. 14/2
27.2 to MS Dhoni, That's the breakthrough! Shortish delivery outside off, Dhoni tries to drive of the backfoot and gets the edge. Kemp - who dropped Laxman earlier - takes it at second slip. Dhoni tried to counterattack for a brief while but finally falls to Thomas.. 55/5
37.1 to VVS Laxman, What a catch! Laxman tries to drive on the up, gets a thick edge and Duminy diving forward at point takes a great catch. Big breakthrough there. 93/6
39.5 to Harbhajan Singh, Gone! Full and straight, Harbhajan misses. That was going on to hit middle and leg. Harbhajan, who made a handy contribution in the first innings, falls for a duck this time.. 93/7
41.3 to Z Khan, Gotcha! Fine edge to the 'keeper who makes no mistake! India are eight down now. 97/8
53.4 to VRV Singh, last man goes! Full outside off stump, he goes for the big shot over cover, gets a thickish top-edge though, and Adams at cover just has to make some ground to take the catch. 142/10
Nantie Hayward731321.85352000
16.2 to SR Tendulkar, GONE! LBW! That was a superb delivery, fuller than the other ones and I would bet a bit faster too. it had some late inswing and just straightened after bouncing. Tendulker misread that one and he has to take the long walk back to the pavilion.. 33/3
16.4 to SC Ganguly, GONE! It's all over. He gets a fine edge and van Jaarsveld, standing in as keeper for van Wyk, takes the catch at a comfortable height. Ganguly would be dissapointed with that seeing that he looked in good form yesterday. It's all over for nought. The Master and the Prince depart in quick succession.. 33/4
Friedel de Wet832312.87371110
52.4 to S Sreesanth, got 'em! A short of length delivery outside off stump, Sreesanth plays at it and gets an edge, and van Wyk takes a diving catch behind the stumps to end his time at the crease, India are nine down. 134/9

Zaheer Khan1253633.00596000
0.1 to JA Rudolph, Gone!First ball!Rudolph bowled! A full, swinging ball outside off stump moves back and pegs back his off stump, Zak's loving it!. 0/1
10.3 to JP Duminy, Bowled! What a ball! Pitches full, fast and furious outside off stump and swings in, Duminy plays around it and the ball hits top of off stump, and Zaheer's cock-a-hoop, India strike again. 36/2
38.2 to JM Kemp, got'm! and that's a crucial wicket. Short delivery on the stumps, Kemp goes for the big pull and ends up with a thick top edge, ball steeples up behind the stumps on the leg side. Dhoni hurtles across and nicely settles under it. 183/6
Sreesanth1024604.60398000
Vikram Singh804125.12357002
20.1 to AN Petersen, Gone! Full and straight, Petersen misses and that was almost hitting all three stumps, the umpire raises the finger and VRV celebrates. 75/3
20.2 to MN van Wyk, Gone! Another one bites the dust! Not a great ball, but all van Wyk can do is chop it onto his stumps from outside off, and the ball only just dislodges the bail! That's two in two balls for VRV!. 75/4
Irfan Pathan403107.75145011
Harbhajan Singh1243933.25534101
39.3 to PR Adams, another one bites the dust! Adams get the ball on the glove, Short leg makes no mistake as the ball pops up right in front of him. Huge appeal and up goes the finger - Adams walks back for a duck and India are just three wickets away from victory here.. 183/7
47.3 to AC Thomas, two more to go! Goes for the little tickle around the corner but fails ot keep it down. Ganguly at leg-slip makes no mistake. 218/8
47.4 to F de Wet, and he lasts just one ball - that's the third golden duck of the innings ! tossed up, lands full and straight, De Wet doesn't get any bat on that and he is caught stone dead. Nine down, just one more to get.. 218/9
Virender Sehwag2.501515.2992000
48.5 to M Morkel, That's the game! Morkel tries to hit the big one over midwicket and gets a thick top edge. Dhoni gets under it and makes no mistake.. 224/10
