Zaheer Khan813814.75337000
0.3 to GC Smith, GODDIM! Swinging in, it straightens on Smith who comes down the track and that's absolutely plumb. Dreadful, careless shot from Smith. That's it from me. It's over to the venerable Sriram Veera whose office has now regained power. For now.. 0/1
Sreesanth712914.14272102
3.1 to LE Bosman, Cleaned him up! Yorker! Sreesanth pings the blockhole and Bosman, caught in a tangle with his feet movement - his left foot was pressed a bit too across- and his desperate wave of the bat didn't make contact with the cherry.. 6/2
Ajit Agarkar503306.60135000
Irfan Pathan702804.00263010
Anil Kumble1004224.20291100
17.1 to JH Kallis, and he strikes first ball! slightly short and this one went straight on after hitting the deck - Kallis looking to chop it away off the back-foot ends up with a faint edge and Dhoni held on well to fairly hard chance.. 75/3
19.2 to AB de Villiers, Revenge! Traps him in front with a slider. Landed on the off and middle, on a length, slided in and beat the intended sweep shot and rapped him plumb in front.. 93/4
Virender Sehwag502214.40150100
34.6 to MV Boucher, got'im! fuller in length, pitched close to the off stump line and turning in - Boucher swipes across the line and is trapped plumb in front, easy decision for the umpire. South Africa five down. 154/5
Sachin Tendulkar804615.75183110
35.2 to JM Kemp, golden duck! that's cricket for you - 100 in the previous match, 0 in the next. Fraction short and close to the off stump line, Kemp attacks the ball in an attempt to pierce the off side ring, fails to keep it down and the ball goes straight to Sehwag at point. 155/6

Shaun Pollock1022322.30493001
6.2 to SR Tendulkar, Sachin falls. Pollock again takes him out. Well outside the offstump, Tendulkar is bit unsure whether to leave or play, ends up doing both as he tries to get out of a shot at the last minute but by then it was too late. The ball had kissed the outside edge and Boucher fell low to his right to take a smart catch. Indian batting again in doldrums. Any one surprised?. 24/2
34.3 to A Kumble, another brut of a bouncer, pitched outside the off stump and nipping back in sharply - Kumble fends at it awkwardly and the ball lobs up off the edge - Smith at first slip moves across to his left and takes a comfortable catch. 150/9
Makhaya Ntini913423.77416001
5.4 to W Jaffer, Gotcha! Loose drive from Jaffer. Slightly short in length, outside the offstump, Jaffer goes back and across, tries to squaredrive it ,away from his body, nicks it to first slip.. 23/1
9.3 to V Sehwag, Big wicket. Sehwag is back in the hutch. Full, straight on the middle, Sehwag tries to whip it across the line, ends up scooping it in the air, to the right of midwicket where Bosman takes a few steps before diving full length to take a very fine catch. India rocked by the seamers. Again.. 38/3
Jacques Kallis814115.12305110
31.1 to Z Khan, Kallis too gets one to his name - short of a good length delivery, pitched outside the off stump and shaping away a touch. Too good a delivery for Zaheer Khan who has a poke at it and the edge flies straight to Boucher behind the stumps. 145/8
Andre Nel704015.71313223
19.5 to MS Dhoni, Gone..Dhoni falls slashing straight to thirdman. Short of length, outside the offstump, Dhoni hops back and upper-cuts it, ala Sehwag, over the slips and it flies high and straight to Prince.. 82/5
Justin Kemp4.102135.04133000
24.1 to KD Karthik, Slices to his demise. Full and outside the offstump and rather than crashing it through covers, Karthik ends up slicing his drive, in the air, to thirdman. Another one is down, four to go.. 109/6
28.2 to AB Agarkar, Agarkar too walks back, drawn by the warm nostalgic feelings for the place and by two sweet little words: "Dressing Room" - harmless delivery outside the off stump, Agarkar goes for the lofted drive and the ball goes straight to Andrew Hall at sweeper cover. Three more to go.. 128/7
38.1 to S Sreesanth, And the inevitable. Short ball on the middle and off stump line, Sreesanth makes room and cuts hard, ball clips the shoulder of the bat and goes straight to de Villiers at cover. Sreesanth straightaway looked at the square leg umpire in an attempt to let him know that it was too high but by then the finger had gone up and the ice-box was being rushed out.. 163/10
