122OUTSteyn to Siddle, out Bowled!! Steyn finishes it off. This was another full delivery around off, Siddle goes for the drive and he too like his bowling partners drags it back on to the stumps. The off-pole is discarded from the ground. Siddle b Steyn 2(11)397/10
120.1OUTR Peterson to Johnson, out Bowled!! The bowling change has worked straightaway. This was a tossed up delivery outside off, Johnson goes for the sweep and ends up inside edging it on to the middle-stump. He practises the shot after being dismissed and walks back shaking his head in disappointment. Johnson b R Peterson 33(54) [4s-6]391/9
119.3OUTSteyn to R Harris, out Bowled!! Harris chops one back onto his stumps. No reactions from Steyn. This was a fuller length delivery around off, Harris stays rooted to the crease and looks to drive but only manages an inside edge on to his off-stump. R Harris b Steyn 19(31) [4s-2]391/8
118FOURSteyn to Johnson, FOUR, short of length outside off, Johnson is quick to pick up the length and hammer the pull in front of square, the ball bullets away to the fence384/7
116.2FOURDuminy to R Harris, FOUR, well a rare sight, Amla misfields and allows the ball to roll away to the fence, short and outside off, Harris rocks back and cuts it to sweeper, where Amla makes a mess of it378/7
112.5FOURPhilander to Johnson, FOUR, fullish and widish outside off, Philander forces Johnson to play a false shot with the outside edge running past gully to the third man fence. 5th four for Mitch367/7

Innings Highlights

Over No.Event TypeEventTeam Score
61.1OUTJohnson to M Morkel, out Caught by Haddin!! Morkel falls for a golden duck and the innings is over. 7 for Johnson. From round the wicket and a searing short delivery, Morkel's weight was on the back foot, looked to guide it to third man with an open face, a tiny edge and that's all is what is needed. Australia lead by 191 now. M Morkel c Haddin b Johnson 0(1)206/10
60OUTJohnson to de Villiers, out Caught by Warner!! Good leaping catch by Warner at mid-off. No hundred for de Villiers. But what an outstanding knock he has played. The last delivery of the over, he wanted to play another big stroke, but mistimed the slower delivery, Warner timed his leap well and pouched it without any trouble. de Villiers c Warner b Johnson 91(148) [4s-10 6s-2]202/9
59.5FOURJohnson to de Villiers, FOUR, smashed over cover. Down on one knee and clouts the slower delivery. Into the nineties now. Nods at Steyn after that boundary202/8
57.4SIXLyon to de Villiers, SIX, terrific shot. de Villiers down the wicket and launching Lyon into the stands at long-on. Clean swing of the bat and the ball was going only one way and that was over the ropes196/8
57.2OUTLyon to Philander, out Lbw!! Looked an innocuous appeal at first, but that is a very good review from Australia. From round the wicket, it pitches in line and beats Philander's flick, thuds into the pads. Would've taken out middle and leg. Pretty out and the third umpire confirms the same. Illingworth didn't give it out initially and then Australia went for the review. So Lyon breaks the dangerous looking stand. Philander lbw b Lyon 15(35)189/8
53.3FOURLyon to de Villiers, FOUR, de Villiers' class on show there. Down the wicket in a flash, to the pitch and hammers the drive wide of cover. Mid-off had no chance too. The ball screams away to the fence180/7

72.2OUTSteyn to S Marsh, out Caught by de Villiers!! Marsh is gone and Australia have declared as well. Nothing shot from Marsh as he poked at a ball well outside off and edged it low to the left of the keeper. AB took it easily and as soon as the wicket fell, both batsmen run off the field, followed by the South Africans. S Marsh c de Villiers b Steyn 44(84) [4s-5 6s-1]290/4
67.4FOURM Morkel to S Marsh, FOUR, another outside edge that runs away to the third man fence. Good length delivery outside off stump, Marsh defends and gets lucky286/3
62.3FOURR Peterson to S Marsh, FOUR, picks this flighted delivery from well outside off stump, gets his front foot a long way across and sweeps it along the ground to the backward square leg fence274/3
61.4FOURSteyn to S Marsh, FOUR, lucky boundary. Short of a length outside off stump, Steyn bent his back for this ball, extra bounce the result but unfortunately, the ball goes over the slip cordon even though it went of the shoulder of the bat269/3
60.5FOURR Peterson to Clarke, FOUR, Clarke saw the full toss coming, waited for it and swept it easily to the deep mid-wicket fence. He didn't even bother to run265/3
59.5FOURSteyn to Clarke, FOUR, slightly gets across the stumps and tickles the short of length delivery very fine, there is no one at fine leg to stop the ball260/3

59.4OUTR Harris to M Morkel, out M Morkel Run Out!! 1 run completed. What was Morne doing there? Never a second run in it. Probably, he wanted the game to be over quickly. Turns the short of length delivery to backward square leg, Philander was just jogging, as Morne calls for the second, he responds and Lyon's throw is bang on target. Haddin takes the bails off and the square leg umpire puts his finger up straightaway. M Morkel run out (Lyon/Haddin) 1(4)200/10
59.2FOURR Harris to Philander, FOUR, another good looking drive. The field is up why not take full toss of it. Full delivery outside off stump, this time Philander sends it to sweeper cover198/9
59.1FOURR Harris to Philander, FOUR, Johnson doesn't want to put in the dive and stop the ball. Full delivery outside off stump, Philander drives off the front foot to the deep extra-cover fence193/9
58.5SIXSiddle to Philander, SIX, this time Philander has timed it really well and it sails over the backward square leg fence. Gets on top of the bounce and hooks, gets full value for the shot188/9
58.1FOURSiddle to Philander, FOUR, short delivery on the off stump, Philander pulls it along the ground to the backward square leg fence182/9
57.3OUTR Harris to Steyn, out Caught by Clarke!! Give me the ball, I'll take you the wickets! Short of a length delivery outside off stump, the ball nips away, Steyn pokes and gets a thick edge which goes at a good height to second slip. Steyn c Clarke b R Harris 3(8)178/9
