0.2 to GC Smith, bowled 'em! A tad fuller this time, 133.2ks on a sweet spot, swings in and beats Smith's tame forward drive, ball sneaks through bat and pad and crashes into off stump, big wicket, well bowled Zaheer Khan!. 0/1
0.4 to JH Kallis, GONE! Whoah Nelly! Full, fast and moving away from him, 130.4ks Kallis reaches a long way for it, has a big swish at that and can only nick it through to Tendulkar at first slip! Huge wicket, Zak's back!. 0/2
10.4 to LE Bosman, GONE! Full outside off stump, an impetuous Bosman has a full-blooded drive at that, kitchen sink and all, as they say, and can only get a thick edge to Tendulkar at first slip, who jumps up and pouches a good catch moving to his left, Zaheer gets another. 38/3
19.2 to AB de Villiers, but Agarkar wins this battle! Shortish outside off stump and de Villiers decides to have a tickle at it and gets a thick edge through to Dhoni, moving to his left, India on a roll!. 76/6
11.6 to HH Gibbs, gone! A rank half-volley outside off stump, begging to be hit, Gibbs gets onto bended knee and can only smack that in the air to Kaif at short extra cover, he takes a simple catch and Gibbs has to go, a tame dismissal. 42/4

Fall of wickets: 1-0 (Virender Sehwag, 0.4 ov), 2-7 (Sachin Tendulkar, 4.4 ov), 3-17 (Mohammad Kaif, 8.5 ov), 4-44 (Dinesh Karthik, 16.2 ov), 5-129 (MS Dhoni, 30.4 ov), 6-133 (Irfan Pathan, 32.6 ov), 7-148 (Harbhajan Singh, 35.6 ov), 8-156 (Ajit Agarkar, 37.5 ov), 9-168 (Rahul Dravid, 40.1 ov), 10-168 (Anil Kumble, 41.3 ov)
0.4 to V Sehwag, and gone! short and wide outside the off stump. Sehwag goes for the cut and the ball flies off the top edge, done in by the extra bounce there - Andrew Hall sprints across in the deep and takes a fine tumbling catch - Pollock strikes in the very first over, Sehwag walks back for a duck.. 0/1
4.4 to SR Tendulkar, Pollock strikes again! short delivery and Tendulkar pulls it straight to Bowman at square leg. The ball was there to be hit but he miserably failed to keep it down.. 7/2
8.5 to M Kaif, and Pollock gets his revenge. Excellent off-cutter, Kaif goes for the pull, ball clips the inside edge and crashes into the woodwork. 17/3
40.1 to R Dravid, banged in short outside off stump, Dravid goes for a hook but doesnt time it and gets a leading edge that balloons up and down to a diving Hall at deep backward square leg, who dives forward and plucks that inches before the ground, South Africa have been excellent with their catching today and Dravid's gritty innings comes to an end. 168/9
16.2 to KD Karthik, four down! short of a good length, bit off extra bounce and zing - Karthik leaves his bat hanging in the air to dry and the edge goes straight to Smith at second slip.. 44/4
35.6 to Harbhajan Singh, gone! Fullish, slower ball outside off stump, and all he can do is roll the wrists and scoop that up in the air towards mid-on where Smith dives to his left and plucks that with his left hand as the ball died on him, end of the road for Harbhajan. 148/7
37.5 to AB Agarkar, Full ball on middle and leg. Agarkar loses a bit of balance, falls over and scoops it in the direction of midwicket where Smith times his jump to perfection, stretches his right hand and pulls off another beauty. They're catching them like champions now. The end seems very near. 156/8
41.3 to A Kumble, all over at Newlands! Full-pitched delivery outside off stump, Kumble goes down on one knee and drives, gets an inside edge onto off stump and Hall celebrates with a pumped fist, a spin on the heels, and a happy walk back to the dressing room. 168/10
30.4 to MS Dhoni, pulled and gone courtesy a superb catch! Dropped in short outside off stump, Dhoni's eyes light up and he pulls that hard and flat, looks like another boundary at least but there out of the blue comes Bosman running hard and fast to his left and he dives forward and picks that inches off the ground near the ropes, immense catch to end a fine innings. 129/5
32.6 to IK Pathan, gone! Bangs one in that moves across him, and he's tempted into a leaden-footed poke that takes the edge and flies hard and fast to Smith at lone slip, and he holds onto it above his head, good catch and Kallis has another, the tails exposed too. 133/6
