Kyle Mills814335.37305110
0.2 to HH Gibbs, and gone! again the one that swings away late, this one was fuller in length and closer to the off stump line and Gibbs had no option but to play at it. Thick edge and Styris at second slip makes no mistake. What a start for the Kiwis. 0/1
2.5 to GC Smith, that's the end of that! fuller length delivery outside the off stump, angling away a wee bit and Smith plays a loose drive outside the off stump. Once again the edge is loud and clear and Taylor at first slip dives across to his left and takes a superb low catch. Mills is on a roll here. 5/2
48.5 to J Botha, good length delivery on the pad and Botha clips it away in the air to deep midwicket, Vincent comes in quickly from the edge of the boundary, dives forward and takes a superb catch.. 194/9
Mark Gillespie1015535.50378111
7.5 to AB de Villiers, Gillespie redeems himself with a twister! good length delivery on the middle and off stump line, this one kept its line after hitting the deck leaving AB clueless, hardly any foot movement from the batsman and the ball zips past the outside edge and crashes into the woodwork. South Africa in a spot of bother here. 20/3
45.6 to JA Morkel, Gillespie has the fine say! good length delivery, bowled from round the stumps and this one went straight on. Morkel goes for the pull, but missed the target by miles. Once again the woodwork is disturbed and South Africa are seven down. 167/7
47.1 to SM Pollock, yorked! perfect yorker, bowled from wide of the crease and the ball shaped in a bit, Pollock plays all over it and the ball crashes into middle and leg.. 176/8
Jacob Oram1013113.10382010
21.5 to JH Kallis, Kallis goes! another short of a good length delivery outside the off stump, once again Kallis comes down the track, this time he attempts to cut over point and the ball finds Taylor at deep backward point. South Africa in deep trouble here.. 66/5
Jeetan Patel1003913.90332010
16.6 to JP Duminy, Duminy falls for the trap... flighted outside off, Duminy gets down and goes for the slog sweep. What he didn't realise was that he had a fielder at deep midwicket for that stroke. The elevation wasn't enough to clear the rope and Vincent took it easily. 53/4
Daniel Vettori1012912.90330010
43.2 to MV Boucher, Boucher comes down the track and Vettori pulls it back a bit. Boucher goes through with the shot anyway and ends up hitting it straight down the throat of Patel at long-on. That's a crucial bowl. 155/6

35.3 to JM How, How falls! Good length delivery, and this one jagged back in sharply - How was committed to the drive and ball crashed into the pad - that was plumb and the dreaded finger went up straightaway. 190/3
