Dale Steyn8.214725.64314130
18.5 to DA Warner, you miss, I hit, mate! Full, fast and straight on the stumps, Warner swings across the stumps and cannot connect and Steyn flattens his leg stump, terminating a fun innings. 114/1
47.4 to NM Hauritz, pitches it up, Hauritz makes room and tries to drive inside-out but finds Botha, stationed at cover, running backward to take a neat catch over his head. 262/8
Makhaya Ntini904625.11233000
45.1 to DJ Hussey, hah, he's missed a rank waist high full toss! Ntini slips it out and Hussey just does not pick it as he opens the face to steer it fine, makes no contact and back goes middle stump. 239/6
48.5 to JR Hopes, oh well taken, Botha! Ntini gets another by pitching full down leg stump, getting the ball to swing in with the angle, Hopes chips it off the pads low in the air towards Botha, staying back on the circle, who then runs across and dives to hold a very sharp catch. 267/9
Jacques Kallis503807.6093110
Albie Morkel704706.71186000
Johan Botha1003233.20342000
22.5 to SE Marsh, smart work from Boucher, who collects the ball as it pitches and straightens to beat Marsh's attempted sweep to one outside off stump, Marsh drags his back leg just over the line and in a flash Boucher breaks the stumps, so Botha gets some success in his opening over. 144/2
28.3 to RT Ponting, what a simple dismissal, its gently tossed up and Ponting just plays across his pads to short midwicket, who stumbles a couple feet forward and accepts the offering, easy as can be. 172/4
32.3 to BJ Haddin, Haddin's gone, and Botha has a third! Tossed up, lures Haddin out of his crease, he drives it low and flat back to Botha, who holds it very well and then throws it up. 188/5
Jean-Paul Duminy1005215.20233030
46.4 to MG Johnson, dragged on! Johnson dances down, making room, and swings and misses and gets a faint under edge that cannons back into the base of the stumps. 253/7

Shaun Tait9.305515.78306022
28.2 to JH Kallis, Tait strikes! Kallis throws it away with a poor back-foot shot, chasing a length ball from his crease and all he can succeed in doing is feather a thin edge to an ecstatic Haddin. 163/5
Nathan Bracken922913.22363000
21.4 to AB de Villiers, edged and Hussey takes another easy catch in front of his face! Bracken pitches full and angles it away to tempt the drive, AB chases it and gives a regulation edge to first slip. 140/3
Mitchell Johnson907117.882711120
18.6 to HH Gibbs, finally Australia hold one, its just catching practice from Gibbs, not moving as he reaches out and plays it off the face of the bat smack to first slip, who cups it in front of his face. 125/2
James Hopes1004804.80284000
Nathan Hauritz906026.66204130
27.6 to JP Duminy, bowled em! This one is tossed up outside off and purchases a bit of turn from the rough, cramping Duminy as he goes for a cut, stays low and a faint inside edge disturb off stump and thats an ODI wicket for Hauritz for the first time since May 2003. 163/4
45.6 to JA Morkel, one hit too many, trying to finish it off with a six, but he doesn't get the desired power on the slog and the ball is taken down at wide long-on by Hopes, running around and sliding onto his knees to complete a good catch. 265/7
