63OUTLyon to Rudolph, out Lbw!! Some drama towards the end of this Test match, can we have some twist here? It was pushed through quicker, Rudolph was playing for the turn, but this one came straight-on and Rudolph was struck on the back pad, huge appeal and Rauf raises his finger immediately, Rudolph reviews, but replays suggest he was struck in line with the stumps and it would have hit the off and the middle stump. Rudolph lbw b Lyon 11(36)165/5
56.5FOURLyon to de Villiers, FOUR, tossed up delivery on the stumps, de Villiers comes down the track and lofts it over the fielder to mid wicket156/4
53.3FOURJames Pattinson to de Villiers, FOUR, he's on the attack now, still on the shorter side, enough width for de Villiers to stand on his toes and slap it to sweeper cover fence151/4
53.2FOURJames Pattinson to de Villiers, FOUR, he's dispatched it with utter disdain, short again and it sits up well for the pull, de Villiers rocks back and muscles it away to deep mid wicket147/4
51.3FOURSiddle to de Villiers, FOUR, lovely shot from de Villiers, overpitched and in the slot, de Villiers gets to the pitch of the ball and drills it between extra cover and long off139/4
48.5OUTLyon to Kallis, out Caught by Michael Clarke!! Kallis falls for 49, is there hope for Australia? This was tossed up from round the wicket and spins away slightly, extra bounce for Lyon. Kallis was pushing forward, gets a thick outside edge that is well held by Clarke diving to his right. South Africa have lost half their side and are just 14 runs ahead. Kallis c Michael Clarke b Lyon 49(91) [4s-5 6s-1]129/4
