Shaun Pollock701912.71332010
8.3 to BA Parchment, a massive shout as Parchment falls to off as he looks to play across the line and is hit back in his crease, Koertzen wastes no time in raising the finger, albeit it's severals seconds before it is in its final position. 35/2
Dale Steyn7.502423.06321020
5.6 to DS Smith, the breakthrough and a limp shot, angled across the left hander, Smith aims a loose drive with anchored feet and the ball goes to first slip at an ideal height. 26/1
35.5 to DBL Powell, bowled him! He steps outside leg, tries to bash it over midwicket but the ball deflects off his pad onto his stumps. 175/10
Andre Nel703625.14265020
13.4 to MN Samuels, bowled him! A horrid shot, trying to cut this straighter ball. It was too close to him, and he drags it on. 61/3
17.2 to S Chanderpaul, gone this time! Short and wide, a filthy delivery but Chanderpaul matches the poor ball with a terrible stroke, cutting it straight to point. 68/4
Charl Langeveldt702313.28241010
18.3 to DJ Bravo, and he's got him! Another outswinger, Bravo wrongly decided to whip it through his favoured leg-side region and gets a thick inside edge. Boucher, diving to his left, does the rest. 72/5
Albie Morkel705718.14151311
21.3 to D Ramdin, another one! Good line outside off, but too short to be driving and he gets a thin edge through to the keeper. 81/6

Daren Powell723214.57263030
0.6 to GC Smith, bowled him - his middle stump is flattened! A dreadful shot from Smith, trying to drive this wider ball but he didn't move his feet an inch. Consequently, the bat arced down from first slip, dragging the ball onto his stumps. 2/1
Fidel Edwards702713.85293011
3.1 to AB de Villiers, good catch! Fine bowling from Edwards, as de Villiers tries to pull this from outside his off stump but skies it over point's head. Samuels circles beneath it, steadies himself and takes a really good catch. 4/2
Daren Sammy703705.28194000
Ravi Rampaul703414.85201111
15.1 to JH Kallis, that changes things and some. Short, Kallis looks to work it to leg but rolls his wrists too early, gets a top edge and all Ramdin has to do is go back five yards and wait for the ball to come down. 59/3
Dwayne Bravo402817.00103030
24.1 to JL Ontong, what a catch! What an amazing catch from Dwayne Bravo. A bouncer, Ontong tried to defend but got a leading edge up in the air. Bravo sprinted down the pitch and dived, full length, taking the ball while horizontal to the ground, about two feet from Ontong. 118/4
