    5 On the pads and a loud appeal is turned down. But there might be a run out here, with Khawaja having wandered outside his crease. And that's lazy from Khawaja. He didn't put his bat down in time and some smart work in the field with a direct hit from the slips 17
    18.2 Von Berg pins Short in front with a full legbreak. No fifty for the Australia A opener. Starts on off and spins back in, Short aims for a sweep, but does not make contact with the bat. He is hit on the pad in line with middle. It did not turn that much to miss leg stump 100/2

    47 bowled him! Head stepped away again, and this time Hendricks kept his focus on the stumps. Yorker on off-stump - Head misses, Hendricks hits. Fine innings by the captain ends 285/4
    41.1 important wicket. South Africa had kept the batsmen quiet in the last couple of overs, and Magala gets the reward for keeping it full and straight. Hint of a movement in, and Marnus is rapped right in front. Ends a very good innings that kept Australia's momentum going 236/3

    49.1 tried to be too cute, moving around the crease and lapping - but only ended up giving a simple catch to square leg 304/5

    12.5 Soft as wax. Erwee can't believe it. Low full-toss on middle, Erwee leans into it and does not play a full-blooded flick. Instead, he tamely chips it into the lap of Marnus at short midwicket 89/1

    14.5 Head bowls Cloete with a beauty. This is a length ball, drifts in from around the wicket, tricks Cloete into playing the angle, but the ball breaks away to beat the outside edge and hit the top of off stump. Head's day keeps getting better 98/2
    19.1 and the falling run-rate does the trick. A half-tracker by Agar, but Second can only hit it straight to deep square leg. It should have gone into the stands, but the South Africans haven't looked convincing against spin - even when putting bad balls away 118/3
    48.4 Zondo has been run out, trying to farm the strike. He moved away but Paris followed him from around the wicket, and Zondo could only turn it to square leg. He egged Hendricks on for a second, but it was never on. 290/10
    25.4 Behardien gone via a direct hit. Lost his head completely. Agar was appealing for lbw - which also looked close - but the ball had gone straight to slip. For some unfathomable reason, Behardien set off for a run, and was promptly run out. Never looked convincing during his stay at the crease 140/4
    26.5 flatter and straighter, traps Muthuswamy on the crease. The umpire raises the finger after a prolonged appeal - and it's the right decision. That would have crashed into leg-stump 143/5
    28.1 beauty! perfectly pitched leg-break, lands on middle, turns away sharply drawing the batsman's tentative poke. The keeper snaffles the thin edge. South Africa sink further 155/6
    30.4 plumb in front. The bowler barely had to appeal and the finger went up. Short, and Von Berg might have wanted to hit the boundary but he missed it entirely to be struck bang in front. Quite apart from the batting failure, the leggie won't like having fallen to another leggie 167/7
    44.1 full on the stumps and dug out, where cover intercepts it for a nonchalant catch. Frylinck thought it was a bump ball perhaps, and stayed put before the umpires ruled him out 249/8
    47.3 and Magala has holed out trying to go for one more big hit. Got it off the toe end and Khawaja at midwicket judged it well, taking the catch just inside the ropes 278/9
