BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Gary Brent915836.44317130
45.3 to AB de Villiers, full on the legs, slower ball does it as de Villiers mistimes down the ground for long on to take a comfortable catch, what an innings. 289/6
47.3 to JP Duminy, WHAT A CATCH, slower ball outside the off, too short, crashes the cut wide of point who takes off, outstretched arm and that is a great catch from the 12th man Dabengwa. 297/8
47.6 to M Ntini, fullish on the off, slow ball, Ntini goes after that, not timed, gets under it a bit and sends the catch to the long off coming in off the boundary. 299/9
Elton Chigumbura914825.33335130
13.1 to GC Smith, slower ball after a delay with a stuck sightscreen, Smith drives firmly at the width, gets the edge and Taylor this time gets two hands to a low catch at a wide slip. 69/2
46.5 to JJ van der Wath, short but on line, van der Wath pulls from the front foot, does not complete the shot, sends it high and forward of the deep midwicket who takes a comfortable catch. 294/7
Tawanda Mupariwa805116.37224200
8.5 to GH Bodi, gets well forward on the off, pushes at one leaving him, edges, Taibu does well to take that standing up before appealing and then setting off on a celebration run to square leg, Bodi almost with a gulity look in the eyes, sees the finger of fate go up. 52/1
Hamilton Masakadza1005525.50272230
40.6 to JA Morkel, full outside off, goes after that on the drive but gets an inside edge and very well taken by an excited Taibu. 255/3
42.1 to SM Pollock, gets one just on the off, short of length, looks to run that to third man, opens the face too much as he plays from the crease, gets the edge and another catch by Taibu standing up. 265/4

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Shaun Pollock1024714.70315000

Makhaya Ntini704917.00219000
46.1 to GB Brent, what ever fast bowler wants to see, the top of the off stump being hit and sent spinning, angled in just on legth, Brent gets forwatd but the ball is through him before any defence got in the way. 273/7
Morne Morkel1014414.40344010
13.3 to V Sibanda, Morkel has the last laugh, one just outside off, goes on the drive again, foot not there this time, nice bounce takes the outside edge to de Villiers. 76/1
Vernon Philander804705.87256000
Johan van der Wath805026.25235110
19.3 to H Masakadza, outside off, that goes away with the arm, gets forward put then pushes at it, gets the edge to de Villiers. 101/2
39.4 to E Chigumbura, Bodi moved to well forward of square leg, trap set, and he falls for it, touch short on the legs, goes after it, gets it high on the bat with Bodi hardly having to move as he takes it comfortably. 231/4
Thandi Tshabalala705017.14192311
36.4 to BRM Taylor, flatter ball maybe arm ball at the legs, goes to clear midwicket but Dumniy jumping to his left gets two hands to it and holds on to a good catch. 210/3
