Shaun Pollock622414.00241100
6.1 to NJ Astle, back to a short ball, gives it a mighty pull away in the air over backward square leg, stupid shot really, regulation catch taken by Klusener in the deep. 15/1
Makhaya Ntini724516.42277110
7.3 to AR Adams, chases a short widish delivery trying to cut, foolishly, he gets a thick outside edge, and Mark Boucher takes an excellent keeper's catch diving to his right. 17/2
Allan Donald802933.62331030
14.2 to SP Fleming, wild swining pull to a shortish ball on leg, fine diving outstretched catch made by Boeta Dippenaar at short fine leg. 68/4
38.1 to DL Vettori, full pitched delivery on the stumps, strikes Vettori on the pads, big appeal, plumb out. 157/8
38.2 to JEC Franklin, full and flush on the pads, big appeal and umpire Davis is quick to raise the finger, another plumb one. 157/9
Jacques Kallis5.102334.45202030
13.4 to L Vincent, again charging at the delivery, looking to fire the delivery down the ground to long on, mishits and Ntini takes an easy one at mid on. 68/3
15.3 to CD McMillan, short ball pulled in the air, top edges to mid on where Ntini takes an easy catch. 72/5
41.1 to CL Cairns, slogs a fullish ball high and hard down the ground, but succeeding only in picking out the fielder Boje on the long on fence. 175/10
Nicky Boje802102.62280000
Lance Klusener703024.28231110
34.4 to CZ Harris, forward, taken on the front pad by a ball pitched on leg, big appeal for lbw from Klusener is upheld by umpire Davis. 147/6
34.5 to AC Parore, clipped off the pads straight to Gibbs at mid wicket who takes an excellent catch. 147/7
