Shahadat Hossain25110734.289713102
123.6 to ND McKenzie, He has dragged it on. McKenzie falls on the 388th delivery. The reverse swing did the trick. It landed outside off and tilted in with the shiny side, McKenzie tried to chop it to third man, as he has done so successfully the whole innings, but this one reversed in a bit more and caught the inside edge. 514 for 2. Shahadat, after claiming the wicket, went across and congratulated the batsman.. 514/2
125.3 to HM Amla, Shahadat and his reverse swing is doing the trick. Another one full and it tails in late, Amla plants his left leg across and tries to bring his bat around it. Too late. Trapped in front.. 515/3
127.1 to AG Prince, Another fatal drag! Statutory warning should accompany Shahadat: Don't take a drag! It was just short of length, angling away from Prince who went for a cut but got the inside edge.. 519/4
Mohammad Rafique44.1513222.9819112210
157.6 to MV Boucher, Rafique gets his 99th and its Boucher who falls! He tossed it up a bit more and outside off stump, Boucher launched himself into a cover drive but Rafique had slowed up the pace and Boucher couldn't keep his drive down. Caught at covers and Rafique is a relieved man. Ashraful rushes to congratulate him. Everyone huddles around Rafique.. 579/6
161.1 to RJ Peterson, That's his 100th Test wicket. Congrats Rafique! He can't believe the way it came. Freaky. He floated it full and outside off stump, Peterson went for an expansive off drive, got an edge and it bounded off Rahim's left thigh to first slip where its held. Rafique turns around to appeal, then clutches his head in relief and is soon surrounded by his team-mates. This is his last Test and one feared he might not get his 100th wicket but he has pulled it off. And South Africa have declared.. 583/7
Abdur Razzak31112914.1611516100
94.3 to GC Smith, After 414 minutes of run orgy and two runs after being part of the history, Smith is gone. Flighted full and straight, Smith went down on his knee, looking to sweep it but didn't connect. Cleaned up.. 415/1
Shakib Al Hasan2546812.721118000
128.6 to AB de Villiers, Bowled him! Done in by the skidder. It landed on a length, around off and middle and went straight on, de Villiers had a very poor defensive waft at it and is cleaned up. Bangladesh are having a great second session.. 524/5

Dale Steyn2276643.0011112005
8.6 to Tamim Iqbal, Tamim is well and truly set up. Steyn bowlsfull, outside off. The ball is moving away and Tamim slashes once again. This time he gets an edge and de Villiers takes a low and tough catch at third slip. 39/1
12.2 to Junaid Siddique, Gone! Steyn picks another wicket. Would you believe it? That's his 100th Test wicket and it's just his 20th Test match. Full in length, outside the off stump, shaping away a touch and that induces a loose drive outside off. What a strike rate Steyn has. Fab.. 49/2
12.3 to Mohammad Ashraful, Two in two. Steyn's strike rate keeps getting better. No 101. Fast and furious bouncer, Ashraful stabs it and the ball evades the ungainly fend and bounds off the gloves and bobs up for Boucher to hold. They appeal, Bucknor remains impassive as ever, they continue to appeal and slowly the fatal finger goes up.. 49/3
42.5 to Shahriar Nafees, loss of concentration.... Steyn pitches it just a shade outside the off stump, Nafees is drawn forward but he fails to cover the line as a thick outside edge goes straight to Smith at first slip. 176/5
Makhaya Ntini13.433542.56687000
62.6 to Mushfiqur Rahim, Ntini makes him play and look at the result..... pitches on a good length outside off and gets it to nip back in slightly, Rahim pokes at it but fails to cover the line, Boucher takes the outside edge easily to his right. 232/6
66.5 to Shakib Al Hasan, Ntini strikes twice.... bangs it in just short of a length outside off, Shakib decides to free his arms by cutting square of the wicket on the off side, he's cramped for room and gets a thick edge to Boucher. The change of attack works for Ntini. 241/7
68.4 to Mohammad Rafique, Ntini's on a roll here.... pitches it up outside the off stump, Rafique stands outside his leg stump and goes for a flashy uppish drive away from his body, he ends up getting a thick edge to Boucher who leaps up and deflects off his gloves it to Smith at first slip. 246/8
70.4 to Mashrafe Mortaza, that's the end of the innings.... pitches it up outside the offstump, Mortaza goes for the expansiv drive through the covers and gets a thick outside edge to Boucher. Aftab will not come out to bat so that terminates the innings. South Africa have enforced the follow-on. 259/9
Morne Morkel1307105.465210008
Robin Peterson1626113.81616000
31.2 to Abdur Razzak, goes for one shot too many, Peterson gives it plenty of air outside off, Razzak tries to loft over the on side but gets a top edge towards point, Prince runs backwards a little and takes the catch. 118/4

Dale Steyn1123533.18526000
1.3 to Junaid Siddique, the first one goes.... pitches outside off and straightens, Junaid gets a half stride forward and fishes outside the offstump, he gets a thick outside edge to Boucher. 0/1
23.4 to Mohammad Ashraful, After softening him up with bouncers, Steyn dishes out another lifter, this time making him play. The ball rears up on him outside off, Ashraful pokes his bat out and gets a thick edge through to Boucher. 49/4
25.1 to Shakib Al Hasan, Steyn shows no mercy.... He bangs one in short at a nasty pace and forces Shakib to play at it, the ball climbs over his midriff, he sticks his glove out and the ball lobs up and goes down McKenzie's throat at forward short-leg. 54/5
Morne Morkel4.512114.34224002
39.5 to Mashrafe Mortaza, superb catch to end the series..... Morkel bangs it in short outside off and gets it to curve in, Mortaza tries to weave away but the ball flies off the face of the bat to McKenzie at gully who flings himself to his left and cups it with both hands. That ends a very satisfying Test for McKenzie. 119/9
Jacques Kallis631302.16321100
Robin Peterson1323352.53604000
18.3 to Tamim Iqbal, Tamim loses his patience... After staying 56 deliveries for his 9, Tamim decides to to go over the top, the ball is flighted on middle and leg, he ttakes a few paces down the track and tries to cart it over the infield on the on side but ends up spooning it to Steyn at mid-on. 44/2
18.6 to Shahriar Nafees, Peterson lands it on the rough, Nafees gets across and is completely squared up by one that skids through and straightens, Kallis snaps up a thick outside edge at first slip. That's two strikes in the over for Peterson. 45/3
26.1 to Mushfiqur Rahim, and he strikes immediately, Peterson lands the ball on the cracks outside off, Rahim is drawn forward, he tries to defend but the ball takes the outside edge and lobs to Kallis at first slip. 58/6
26.3 to Mohammad Rafique, very tame end to his Test career... Peterson flights it outside off, lands it fairly wide, Rafique tries to thump it back pas the bowler and only succeeds in scooping it back to Peterson. 58/7
38.5 to Shahadat Hossain, that's Peterson's fifth.... gives it plenty of air on middle, he steps down the track and tries to launch it over long-off, he fails to get the elevation as Prince takes it easily at long-off. 114/8
