TOTAL38.3 Ov (RR: 2.75, 161 Mins)106
Fall of wickets: 1-1 (Herschelle Gibbs, 0.2 ov), 2-5 (Boeta Dippenaar, 2.2 ov), 3-42 (Neil McKenzie, 16.5 ov), 4-44 (Jonty Rhodes, 18.2 ov), 5-49 (Mark Boucher, 20.4 ov), 6-49 (Shaun Pollock, 20.6 ov), 7-50 (Lance Klusener, 21.3 ov), 8-79 (Gary Kirsten, 29.3 ov), 9-103 (Steve Elworthy, 36.6 ov), 10-106 (Makhaya Ntini, 38.3 ov)
0.2 to HH Gibbs, follows a good length delivery outside off, just gets a little outside edge on it, Gilchrist collects, and umpire Harper sends Gibbs on his way. 1/1
2.2 to HH Dippenaar, tries to cut one in close to him, gets a massive outside edge which Warne happily takes at first slip. 5/2
36.6 to S Elworthy, tries to slash at a ball in close, hits it straight to Steve Waugh in a short cover point position. 103/9
21.3 to L Klusener, well the rot has well and truly set in, Klusener beaten by one that cuts back in, has the batsman stuck on the crease, big lbw appeal is upheld by umpire Hair, Gillespie picks up his first wicket. 50/7
16.5 to ND McKenzie, forward and looking to drive a ball that probably didn't pitch as full as he expected, playing through the shot without making contact with the ball, consequently finding himself clean bowled. 42/3
18.2 to JN Rhodes, back and getting a slight edge on a ball that moves away, great catch taken by Gilchrist stretching out to his right to take it. 44/4
20.4 to MV Boucher, good straight ball, much too good for Boucher, pitched just outside off and moves in, trapping Boucher on the crease, big appeal for lbw, upheld by umpire Harper, that was plumb. 49/5
20.6 to SM Pollock, forward with bat and pad, another lbw shout and once again its upheld, looked a tough one on the replay, striking him right in line with off stump, so a good decision. 49/6
38.3 to M Ntini, driven straight back in the air, Bichel dives forward and to his wright to reel in a screamer of a one-handed catch, what a way to complete a five wicket haul!. 106/10
29.3 to G Kirsten, beaten by a ball that turns in vicously from outside off and traps him on the crease. 79/8
