Wayne Parnell906917.66258230
39.3 to YK Pathan, this time Yusuf doesn't get hold of it, it was a low full toss outside off, Yusuf was looking to hit it towards leg, the bat turned in his hand and flew towards extra cover where an overhead catch is taken, timely strike for South Africa. 231/6
Charl Langeveldt1004814.80322120
18.2 to KD Karthik, gone! Surprised by the short ball, Karthik top-edges a hurried pull to Petersen at mid-on, easy catch off the splice of the bat and that's the third wicket down. 116/3
Albie Morkel805917.37206120
36.2 to V Kohli, fantastic catch from Gibbs to break the partnership, it was a fuller delivery than the previous one, Kohli chipped it to the on-side, Gibbs leaps to his left from short midwicket and plucks a low catch. 204/5
Johan Botha604006.6651100
Jacques Kallis702934.14274010
23.1 to MS Dhoni, Dhoni is gone! that is a big breakthrough, a short of length ball outside off, Dhoni seemed to be into his shot a touch early, his drive lobs towards mid-off where Albie pouches it low. 138/4
43.4 to SK Raina, full outside off, Raina wafts at it, gets a thick outside edge, easy catch for Boucher, and India's chances of reaching 300 takes a hit. 260/7
45.5 to RA Jadeja, South Africa continue to make regular breakthroughs, Jadeja goes in a similar manner to Raina, it was pitched up and outside off, Jadeja looks to drive, gets an outside edge to the keeper. 274/8

Praveen Kumar804625.75245020
8.4 to LE Bosman, Bosman gets a little adventurous and pays the price for it, he makes a bit of room to crash it past point, the ball hits his leg stump, Praveen glares as the batsman walks off, passion and adrenaline rush there in the middle. 58/1
49.2 to DW Steyn, timber! The leg stump is flattened! Praveen bowls the leg cutter, Steyn waltzes down the pitch and tries to mow it over the on side, swings too early because of the change of pace, looked back to see the deforestation behind him. 290/9
Ashish Nehra1006716.70254200
27.6 to JA Morkel, Nehra punches the air in delight! He gets the ball tpo nip back in from outside off, the ball skids through and appears to hit him in line with the off stump in normal speed, but for some reason Albie looks disappointed with the decision, was he upset with himself or the decision? I really don't know yet, need to see another replay. 142/5
31.2 to MV Boucher, the bowling change works! Sreesanth tempts him to go for the slash and Boucher obliges, a touch wide outside off, there's a thick edge and big deflection off the toe of the bat, Dhoni falls to his right and takes it. 161/6
42.6 to JH Kallis, timber! Kallis goes for broke and has his stumps rearranged, he swivels and tries to bludgeon it over the on side, swishes and misses and the ball hits his off stump, the stumps are upright but the bails go flying. 225/8
Ravindra Jadeja1022922.90421000
11.2 to HH Gibbs, charges down the pitch to launch it for six, ends up slicing it down long-off's throat, Kohli takes it easily, very crucial breakthrough for India. 64/2
19.1 to AB de Villiers, Jadeja deceives him with the arm ball, de Villiers makes room to smash that through the off side, misses it completely and the ball crashes onto the middle and leg stumps. 109/3
Yusuf Pathan1005115.10282110
34.6 to J Botha, he goes for the sweep but pays the price, flatter and quicker delivery by Pathan, Botha is on his knee and the ball hits the base of the pad, the umpire Saheba had no doubt. 180/7
