Ben Hilfenhaus32.497322.231586010
149.6 to DW Steyn, caught behind! After a flurry of short balls, Hilfenhaus pitches full, Steyn charges, makes room and swings hard. He gets an edge through to Wade. 446/8
151.4 to M Morkel, caught at short mid-off, South Africa are all out because Duminy can't bat. Morkel stands in his crease and slaps a length ball straight to Siddle. 450/9
James Pattinson3469332.731618023
10.1 to GC Smith, a huge appeal for lbw but umpire Bowden says not out. Will Clarke use his only remaining review? He will. The ball pitched in line, it hit in line, it wasn't too high, it's crashing into off stump. Smith's gone. Bowden has overturned his not-out decision. What a start to Pattinson's second spell. He pitched it on a good length and caught Smith on the crease. The bat was a bit late in coming across the front pad and Pattinson beat it with the shape into the left-hander to hit the back pad.. 29/1
123.6 to JH Kallis, Quiney's taken a screamer at gully! What a catch as your first Test catch. The ball was short of a length and there was width outside off, Kallis tried to cut it over gully but edged it, Quiney dived to his left to catch it with both hands. The ball was traveling quickly to him.. 374/4
125.5 to AB de Villiers, Warner's caught AB at point but the umpire is checking to see if Pattinson has overstepped. He's back foot is just okay, so AB goes too. The ball was nothing special, short and wide outside off. AB went after it and cut hard, Warner dived to his right at point and took the catch around head height. This is a huge blow to South Africa's aspirations of scoring quickly. 377/5
Peter Siddle36611123.0816914003
93.3 to HM Amla, lbw! Will Amla review? He has a word with Kallis and decides not to. Off he goes. Siddle pitched the ball on a good length and nipped it into the right-hander, Amla was caught on the crease as he tried to defend and the the ball beat the bat and crashed into the front pad around the knee roll. Asad Rauf took his time but eventually gave Australia relief. Oh my, replays indicate the ball would have passed over the stumps had Amla reviewed it. It was too high. 284/3
137.6 to VD Philander, caught at first slip! Philander pushes hard at a good length ball that pitches around off and shapes away, he gets an edge that is snapped up lo by Clarke. 403/6
Nathan Lyon37413623.671486500
38.4 to AN Petersen, caught at mid-on, that's such a soft dismissal! Petersen came forward and tried to hit through midwicket, he ended up hitting it flat to Hussey, who took the catch at head height. He's not mis-hit many today, has Petersen. He didn't get to the pitch of this one. 119/2
144.3 to JA Rudolph, caught at cover! Rudolph stepped out again, this time he wasn't to the pitch of the ball, and he sliced it to Quiney at head height. 426/7

Dale Steyn30312914.3011816001
4.4 to DA Warner, caught at second slip! Warner was caught on his crease by a good length ball that pitched in line and slanted across him, he poked at it instead of letting it go and the outside edge flew straight to Kallis. 13/1
Vernon Philander30310303.4314011008
Morne Morkel31612734.0913820002
7.4 to RJ Quiney, Quiney's been caught at fine leg! His debut innings is finished. The ball was ordinary, short of a length outside leg stump, and Quiney pulled. Steyn positioned himself on the boundary line, got under the ball and caught it. Realising he was going over the boundary, Steyn tossed it up, stepped out, stepped back in and caught it again. Top effort and he is so pumped that he roars like he's sent a stump cartwheeling. On second look, he didn;t actually step over the boundary, he merely thought he was very close to the rope. So he tossed the ball up .... 30/2
9.3 to RT Ponting, Ponting's made a duck! He pushed forward at a short of a length ball that pitched outside off and held its line. It's that extra bounce that Morkel gets from that length. The outside edge goes to Kallis at second slip. 40/3
130.1 to MEK Hussey, Hussey's century has been ended by a cracking catch from Faf at short cover. He came forward to a length ball and drove hard and flat, the ball was dying on Faf who stooped low and caught it in front of him just before it bounced. Morkel's finally dismissed Hussey after beating him several times through this innings. 527/5

Ben Hilfenhaus1532601.73742010
James Pattinson1935823.05926032
1.3 to AN Petersen, caught behind! And what a loose shot from Petersen. He reached off the front foot for a good length ball that pitched outside off and seamed away from him, Petersen was driving a long way away from his body and nicked it to Wade. 6/1
20.5 to GC Smith, caught at gully, and look at Pattinson go! Smith drives hard at a fuller ball outside off stump and gets a thick outside edge that flies low and to Quiney's right, he takes his second good catch of the match. Pattinson's won his battle with slip. 55/2
Peter Siddle1743612.11854002
32.5 to HM Amla, caught at short cover! Siddle bowls a length ball outside off, Amla leans forward to drive and hits it straight to Hussey, who catches it at knee height, a loose shot really. 102/3
Nathan Lyon1354123.15623200
48.5 to JH Kallis, Lyon has a wicket, Clarke's taken a sharp catch at first slip! Kallis pushed forward to defend at one that slid across him from round the wicket and edged it. Clarke took the catch low to his right, near his boot. 129/4
62.6 to JA Rudolph, lbw! Asad Rauf takes an age to raise his finger, but Rudolph has reviewed the decision. Lyon pitches outside off and angles the ball into the left-hander, Rudolph comes forward to defend but plays outside the line of the ball and is hit on the back pad. That hit the pad just in line and would have gone on to hit the sumps. That will stay out. Rudolph has to go. 165/5
