5.5 to V Sibanda, a beauty from Ntini, touch short of a length, angled in, then straightens and lifts off the pitch, and has Sibanda pushing at that about chest high getting the fientest of edges to de Villiers. 12/1

15.4 to H Masakadza, just short of a length, moves enough off the seam, Masakadza is back, no foot work at all, pushes away from the body and gives the edge to de Villiers, poor shot neith forward, back or sideways. 47/2
48.5 to E Chigumbura, huge swing to somewhere on the leg side, head searching for the clouds, misses and has the stumps split by the full ball. 238/6
1016536.50346320
34.2 to BRM Taylor, thats bad luck for Taylor and fortune to Steyn thanks to Gibbs, a long hop outside the off is crashed on the cut, but Gibbs gets in the way, sticks both hands up in the air and takes a brisk catch. 147/4
47.1 to SC Williams, looking to put the foot down, shuffles down the pitch, gets a slower ball angled across him, flashing drive gets the edge, sends it wide of de Villiers who has a bit of ground to cover. 231/5
49.5 to S Matsikenyeri, slower off cutter just on the off deceives the batsman swing for all his might to the on side, misses and only the off stump is left standing. 245/7

26.4 to T Taibu, short of length on the off, looks to pull from the front foot, gets it high on the bat, also played slightly early, goes high towards fine leg where Philander has to make a meter or two to take a comfortable catch. 106/3

28.2 to GC Smith, flighted up from round the wicket, Smith again goes on the sweep, the same one that he has missed often today, not this time, an edge is well taken by Taibu and Davis agrees. 174/1

37.6 to HH Gibbs, oh dear Gibbs, gets the shorter ball he was waiting for, whips that to the leg side, in the air, Utseya at midwicket jumps, both hands raised, and it sticks, great catch to bring an entertaining innings to an end. 246/2
