11.1 to GC Smith, Harbhajan takes a smart catch! Smith went down the track and flat batted it to right of mid-off where Harbhajan moved swiftly and lunged out to take a sharp catch. 57/1
Harbhajan Singh1006106.10223040
Yuvraj Singh803434.25252000
19.2 to MN van Wyk, Gone! Yuvraj walks quietly towards his team-mates! It turned away from the off stump line and Van Wyk stabbed it low to the right of lone slip fielder Kohli, who swoops forward to pouch it. 106/2
21.2 to AB de Villiers, Spun and gone! It drifted in round the stumps, lands on the off and middle line, and turned away. AB lunged forward to defend. Dhoni took the 'catch' and broke the stumps in a flash. Simon Taufel, the umpire at the bowler's end, gave it out. So I reckon there was an edge. Replays in: Snicko shows there was no edge but he is stumped! Given out caught, of course. 115/4
37.2 to J Botha, Stumped! floated outside the off stump line, Botha goes for the sweep, misses and also drags the back foot outside the crease. Dhoni, as ever, doesn't take his hands back after collecting. He collects and immediately moves his hands forward to break the stumps. He knew immediately that he had got his man. Third umpire confirms it. 188/6

Dale Steyn401503.75183000
Lonwabo Tsotsobe612524.16264000
1.3 to RG Sharma, Rohit fails. Again. It was yet another delivery that was slanted across him outside off and Rohit cuts it straight to backward point.. 1/1
9.4 to PA Patel, Trapped! Lonwabo takes out his second victim. It was a slightly slower one, landed full in length around off and moved in. Parthiv fell over a touch on that front foot and tried to waft across the line and missed. It would have taken out the leg stump. 32/2
Morne Morkel611312.16260010
29.3 to YK Pathan, Morne takes out Yusuf with a superb delivery. It was full in length just outside off and seamed away at the last instant. Yusuf stumbled forward, late, and had a poke at it. He was trying to waft it to the on side! Fatal. Edge and gone! Morne roars!. 128/6
Johan Botha6.502713.95210100
14.6 to Yuvraj Singh, Smith takes a lovely catch! Yuvraj went for the paddle sweep but didn't connect well. The ball lobbed towards leg gully. Smith rushed to his right from slips and the ball was dying on him but he dived full stretch to pouch it inches off the turf. 49/3
Robin Peterson804625.75212200
26.5 to SK Raina, stumped, a wicket just when it appeared they were recovering well, it went on straight from Peterson, Raina took a couple of steps down the track, it was short outside off, was beaten in flight, then tried to play for the turn and dab to the off side but the ball didn't turn in as much as he hoped and de Villiers did a neat job behind the stumps, the pressure is back on now. 112/4
28.4 to MS Dhoni, Soft dismissal! It was a delivery outside off that stopped a touch on Dhoni who ended up checking his intended punch shot , and pushed the ball straight to short extra cover! Gone! He trudges back to the hut.. 123/5
