111.3OUTM Morkel to Shami, out Caught by Graeme Smith!! That ends it all. Short and outside off. Shami slashes out and gets a thick outside edge. It goes straight to first slip, Smith grabs on and rushes off to get prepared to come out and bat. Shami c Graeme Smith b M Morkel 1(6)334/10
109.1OTHERDuminy to Rahane, 1 run, well that answers that. Rahane wanted his fifty. A full toss outside off and he punches it down to long off to bring up his maiden Test fifty and put Shami on strike331/9
108.5OUTSteyn to Ishant, out Caught by de Villiers!! That's just perfect from Steyn. Banged in short and climbing up steeply. Sharma tries to fend it from the crease but the bounce did him in. He was hopping as he played and only managed to get a thin edge through to the 'keeper. Ishant c de Villiers b Steyn 4(3) [4s-1]330/9
108.4FOURSteyn to Ishant, FOUR, that's beautifully played by Ishant and leaves Dravid smirking in the comm box. It was pitched up, Sharma leans forward and drives it sweetly through cover. That will not please Steyn.330/8
108.3FOURSteyn to Ishant, leg byes, FOUR, fast and on the middle and leg, Sharma is hit on the thigh before it rolls down very fine to the boundary326/8
108.2OUTSteyn to Zaheer, out Caught by de Villiers!! Stupendous catch from de Villiers! This is just terrific catching and Steyn gets a five-fer. This was a length ball outside off. Zaheer just backs away and slashes hard, gets a thick outside edge that seemed to be going over the slip cordon but de Villiers leaps up full tilt, and almost dunks the ball down like a basketball player. Clings on with just his right hand to give Steyn his 22nd five-fer in Tests. Zaheer c de Villiers b Steyn 0(2)322/8

155.2OUTRavindra Jadeja to M Morkel, out Caught&Bowled!! Jadeja fittingly finishes things off. This was a flighted ball just outside off, Morkel comes forward to drive but he ends up lobbing it to the right of Jadeja who dives and takes a superb catch. He ends up with career best figures of 6 for 138. M Morkel c and b Ravindra Jadeja 0(2)500/10
155OUTZaheer to Philander, out du Plessis Run Out!! Misunderstanding leads to du Plessis being run-out again. This was a length ball that comes back in, Philander gets an inside edge to square leg, he takes off for the single and then sends his partner back, Rohit gets quickly to the ball and hits the bulls-eye at the bowlers end. Even a dive from du Plessis does not save him. Third umpire makes an easy decision. du Plessis run out (Rohit) 43(70) [4s-4]500/9
154.1OUTZaheer to R Peterson, out Caught by Vijay!! End of an entertaining innings. This was fuller and around off, Peterson goes for the loft but miscues it completely, the ball goes high up in the air towards mid-on, Vijay runs in from mid-off, calls for it and takes a good catch. R Peterson c Vijay b Zaheer 61(52) [4s-9 6s-1]497/8
153.3SIXRohit to R Peterson, SIX, flighted on the stumps, Peterson plays the switch hit superbly, he connects it right off the middle and the ball goes sailing over deep extra cover, KP would have been proud of that shot494/7
152.4OTHERShami to du Plessis, 2 runs, short of length delivery on off, du Plessis stands tall and guides it with an open face to third man. The partnership between du Plessis and R Peterson is now 101486/7
152.3FOURShami to du Plessis, FOUR, full and on off, du Plessis gets to the pitch of the ball and plays the pick up shot beautifully to the deep mid wicket fence, the ball goes one bounce into the ropes484/7

86OUTPhilander to Rahane, out Bowled!! That is a sad end to a great knock from Rahane. A well deserved hundred goes begging. Probably he could have trusted Shami for a delivery or two but he tries to slog as it was the final ball of the over and that brings about his downfall. Full delivery on the leg stump, Rahane swings hard across the line and misses, the ball just clips the leg stump. AB de Villiers comes up to Rahane and gives him a pat on the back. Rahane b Philander 96(157) [4s-11 6s-2]223/10
85.4SIXPhilander to Rahane, SIX, oh that is a great hit from Rahane. Short and wide outside off stump, Rahane backs away and slaps it hard, the short square boundary takes the ball over the sweeper cover fence. Just a hit away from a sensational hundred223/9
85.2FOURPhilander to Rahane, FOUR, just a chip straight down the ground and it beats the Giraffe at long-on. Full delivery on the stumps, Rahane makes room and lofts it over the bowler's head and beats Morne's dive in the deep. Into the nineties now217/9
84.1OUTSteyn to Ishant, out Caught by de Villiers!! The trap set for the short ball and Ishant has simply fallen into it. 350 Test match wickets for Dale Steyn, second quickest to do so. A nasty bouncer on the stumps, Ishant looks to fend and the ball hits him high on the bat and lobs up in the air, the keeper takes a few steps to his left and completes a simple catch. Just one more to go for South Africa. Steyn was absolutely fired up after taking that wicket. Ishant c de Villiers b Steyn 1(10)206/9
83.2FOURPhilander to Rahane, FOUR, take that Vernon Philander! Gee! It was a stunning hit. Full and swinging away outside off stump, but that doesn't bother Rahane and he goes over the infield past cover and it goes on the bounce into the fence206/8
83FOURSteyn to Rahane, FOUR, short again from Steyn, Rahane pulls well and gets it right from the middle of the bat, the ball runs away to the deep mid-wicket fence. Four crucial runs for India201/8
