127.4FOURPhilander to R Harris, FOUR, sharp bouncer from the Vern, Harris goes for the pull and gets a top edge over ABD494/7
127OUTDuminy to Johnson, out Caught by de Villiers!! Duminy is on a hat-trick and this is his career best. This was fired down the leg-side, Johnson leans forward and tries to glance it, but ends up getting a thin inside edge to ABD who collects a sharp catch. Umpire Aleem Dar was not convinced that there was an edge, but Duminy was and he told ABD to go for the review, and the Proteas got it right as the decision was overturned. Johnson c de Villiers b Duminy 0(1)489/7
126.5OUTDuminy to Haddin, out Caught by Amla!! Duminy gets another one against the run of play. This was floated outside off, Haddin mistimes the loft straight down the throat of Amla at mid-off. He goes trying the accelerate. Both Haddin and Watson tried to hit against the wind which was not a clever idea. Haddin c Amla b Duminy 13(21) [4s-2]489/6
125.1FOURPhilander to Haddin, FOUR, Haddin welcomes Philander with a super shot, fullish and outside off, he gets to the pitch of the ball and heaves it wide of mid-on for a boundary484/5
123.2FOURKyle Abbott to Clarke, FOUR, short delivery outside off, not much venom on that, Clarke has plenty of time to go back and pull it to the deep mid wicket. This is now is highest score in South Africa475/5
122.1FOURDuminy to Haddin, FOUR, tossed up delivery on off, Haddin walks across his stumps and hoicks it to deep mid wicket, the ball goes on the bounce to the fence471/5

82.5OUTJ Pattinson to M Morkel, out Caught by Watson!! M Morkel plays one shot too many and finally edges a delivery well outside off. The thick edge flew high and to the left of first slip. Watson was taken back by the momentum but he hangs onto it. M Morkel c Watson b J Pattinson 7(9) [4s-1]287/10
82.3FOURJ Pattinson to M Morkel, FOUR, J Pattinson is not getting any height on the short one. This one too sits up and M Morkel is not shy to play the pull. He connects pretty well too and picks up a boundary287/9
81.3OUTJohnson to Steyn, out Caught by Watson!! Johnson finally gets his man. This was angled across again, Steyn poked out well away from the body. There was extra bounce as well and Steyn got a thick edge. He almost guides that straight to slip. Goes at hip height to Watson at first slip and he latches on. Steyn c Watson b Johnson 28(27) [4s-5]279/9
81.2FOURJohnson to Steyn, FOUR, short and wide outside off, Steyn cuts it uppishly and well wide of the fly slip in place. Another boundary279/8
79.2FOURJohnson to Steyn, FOUR, that's a real snorter. Banged in short of length and rising up steeply. He has Steyn fending up and the ball kisses the shoulder of the bat before lobbing up over the slips273/8
78.2FOURR Harris to Steyn, FOUR, Steyn is timing everything superbly. Full and outside off. Steyn jams it down past mid off for one more boundary266/8

134.3OUTR Harris to M Morkel, out Bowled!! Harris is the hero! What a show from him! This was full and pacy from round the wicket. Morkel does not get the bat down in time and the stumps are shattered. Australia are ecstatic! Australia have beaten the No. 1 ranked Test side in the world in their own backyard. M Morkel b R Harris 0(2)265/10
134.1OUTR Harris to Steyn, out Bowled!! Drama! No shortage of it at all. R Harris strikes first ball of his spell. This was right in the blockhole. It appeared to tail away a touch. Steyn does not get the bat down in time and the ball just shaves the off stump. That's the third time today a bowling change has yielded a wicket first ball. Steyn b R Harris 1(44)265/9
133.4OTHERJohnson to Philander, no run, Johnson darted this in from that angle from round the wicket. Philander was hit on the front pad but the ball-tracker shows it clearly heaidng down leg.265/8
131.2FOURJohnson to Philander, FOUR, slanted in from round the wicket, Philander turns it away to the fine leg fence. It gives Philander his 4th Test fifty. What guts under pressure. Superb knock so far but he is not getting carried away265/8
124OTHERJohnson to Philander, no run, what a huge decision that is! None of the Australians are happy. Clarke is having a chat with Aleem Dar. Just to conclude. It was a good short delivery, Philander was fending. The ball flicked the right glove but the third umpire reckoned it was off the bat when it did259/8
122FOURJohnson to Philander, byes, FOUR, good length delivery swinging back in, Philander tries to defend but fails to make contact. The ball almost shaves the sticks. Even a full length dive to the left from Haddin wasn't good enough to stop the ball259/8
