       Gabriel to Petersen       47/1

Gabriel to Petersen,OUT,what a way to get yourself out, this is short, wide and climbing too much, so much that Petersen has to jump to be able to reach it with a near vertical bat, he ends up hitting it high over cover and the fielder runs back to take it

       Peters to Elgar       226/2

Peters to Elgar,OUT,that is Peters' maiden Test wicket, he has looked harmless with his pace but has stuck to his lines, Elgar did not need to play at this length ball, but went reaching for it, and it moved away slightly to take a thin edge behind, big partnership broken with under six overs to go for the second new ball

       Taylor to du Plessis       274/3

Taylor to du Plessis,OUT,big appeal for caught behind! Given not out and we have a review. Ramdin called for it very quickly. I think there might be an edge here. Lovely delivery, pitches just outside off stump and shapes away from du Plessis. There's a small click as it goes past the edge. We don't have Hot Spot in this series. But we do have Snicko, which shows a spike as the ball passes the edge. And that's enough evidence to overturn Reiffel's decision. What a start to the second day. All action. Delight to dejection for du Plessis. Just what West Indies needed

       Holder to Amla       300/4

Holder to Amla,OUT,and he's gone! Will Amla review? Was a length delivery which nipped back, takes him fairly high on the pad and Bowden's finger goes up. Stuck him just above the roll. There was a discussion between Amla and AB, it appeared AB suggested it might be worth a look but Amla then walks off. Maybe ran out of time. Nicely bowled by Holder.

       Taylor to de Villiers       304/5

Taylor to de Villiers,OUT,what a ball! That's a beauty! Full, late swing, de Villiers aiming to whip it to the leg side, the ball swings past the outside edge and knocks back the off stump. Great sight for Taylor. What a gem. As Michael Holding says on TV, that's like the deliveries he bowled against England in Jamaica in 2009

       Gabriel to Bavuma       325/6

Gabriel to Bavuma,OUT,this time he's gone! Brutish delivery. Short and climbs on Bavuma outside off, rears up and grazes the glove as he can't get out of the line. Superb bowling. They check for the no-ball, but he's fine.

       Peters to van Zyl       348/7

Peters to van Zyl,OUT,and the aggression proves his downfall. Sees another full ball outside off, goes after it with another drive, not much footwork, reaching for the ball and gets an edge to the keeper. Falling in the cause, van Zyl, but that may adjust South Africa's plans again

       Benn to Steyn       417/8

Benn to Steyn,OUT,this time he's gone...he only had one thought, tried to clear long on but gets too far underneath it and gives Holder time to steady himself under the catch.

       Morkel to Smith       55/1

Morkel to Smith,OUT,gone! Morkel rewarded. Although it needed a juggle. Pitches this full outside off, Smith is late coming forward, his front foot isn't stable, gets a healthy outside edge which flies to first slip. Amla can't take it on the first grab, but keeps his cool and holds the rebound.

       Morkel to Johnson       55/2

Morkel to Johnson,OUT,first ball! Pretty poor from Johnson. It's a very full ball outside off, Johnson reaches out for it and gets a fat edge towards third slip where it's neatly held

       Philander to Samuels       231/3

Philander to Samuels,OUT,he's gone! But Samuels calls for the review. No-ball is fine, it was a full delivery which he played across. Heading leg-side, but it's been given on the field. Tailed back into Samuels. Just clipping leg stump, so he's a goner. South Africa have their breakthrough at last.

       Morkel to Brathwaite       233/4

Morkel to Brathwaite,OUT,and another! An opening for South Africa? One brings two, both century-makers back in the hutch as Brathwaite drives at a delivery that wasn't full enough for the shot and he gets a healthy edge to second slip who takes it at knee height

       Imran Tahir to Ramdin       260/5

Imran Tahir to Ramdin,OUT,he's got one! Something for Tahir. Ramdin called for the review. Was a full googly, spins back to beat the inside edge. So no bat. Has it done too much and will miss leg stump? Ramdin got a decent stride in. The decision stands, the ball taking the top of leg stump. Not plumb, but out enough as it was given by Reiffel. The wrong 'un brings him a wicket

       Imran Tahir to Chanderpaul       261/6

Imran Tahir to Chanderpaul,OUT,and another! How things can change. Tahir has two in three balls. Was a short delivery, Chanderpaul went to defend on the back foot. Played with soft hands, another googly, and the ball drops down by his feet then spins back between his legs to dribble into the stumps. It will just say 'bowled' in the book.

       Morkel to Holder       265/7

Morkel to Holder,OUT,they are falling quickly now! A length ball outside off, Holder neither forward or back and gets a thin outside edge to de Villiers. Regulation stuff.

       Imran Tahir to Benn       270/8

Imran Tahir to Benn,OUT,he's got three now! Benn couldn't hold back. Another googly, the left hander went for a big slog and got an outside edge which looped nicely to slip. Pretty poor batting, really. Didn't seem to want to try and hang around

       Imran Tahir to Taylor       275/9

Imran Tahir to Taylor,OUT,another gift for South Africa! Taylor nudged into the leg side, wanted the single to retain the strike but the pick-up from Steyn at midwicket was clean and quick, de Villiers gathers at the stumps and he's short by a few inches. Peters veered off the straight as that throw came in, which cost him vital distance
