Shaun Tait403709.2594110
Nathan Bracken402917.2582110
17.1 to JA Morkel, swung down to long -on! Bracken strikes first ball, pitching it just outside off stump, Morkel connects well with the big swipe but David Hussey runs across and from long-off and takes the ball to his right, very well held, even as the other fielder converged from the other side. 128/5
Ben Hilfenhaus403218.0071120
6.6 to HM Amla, pulled straight to White at short midwicket! The short ball works for Hilfenhaus, Amla tries to collect from outside off stump but plays it high off the bat to the fielder. 40/2
James Hopes402927.2572100
5.4 to HH Gibbs, and Hopes gets Gibbs! He kneels across and goes for that booming swipe only to send the ball down to Michael Hussey, running in from deep midwicket, who takes it on his knees. 35/1
13.3 to MV Boucher, swipes across the line and sends a top edge to Tait at backward point. 90/4
David Hussey301816.0031000
7.2 to VB van Jaarsveld, and it works! Hussey floats that up full on the stumps, van Jaarsveld doesn't get far enough across as he goes for the sweep, and cops it flush on the pad in front of middle and leg. 41/3

Johan Botha401904.7591000
Dale Steyn301916.33100130
4.1 to DA Warner, the sound of timber! You miss, I hit! Steyn pitches full and straight, Warner swings and misses, and the ball takes out middle stump. 21/1
Wayne Parnell4044011.0057000
Morne Morkel3.503228.34114100
6.1 to SE Marsh, soft dismissal this time, Marsh doesn't move his feet much as he attempts to clear the infield, and just scoops the ball up in the air to Botha at mid-on. 29/2
12.6 to DJ Hussey, oh well held, Duminy! Thats one for the ages! You aren't going to see much better in the outfield than that gem of a catch! Hussey takes a hand off the bat as he chips the ball over mid-off, the ball beats Duminy by some distance but he doesn't for a second take his eyes off it, running ages down toward long-off, covering great distance, then times his dive perfectly to take it. 92/4
