Fall of wickets - Australia 1 INN
       Imran Tahir to Hughes       92/1

Imran Tahir to Hughes,OUT,caught at cover! Hughes' timing has been off against the slow bowlers and he's gone and hit one straight to AB at cover. He came out of his crease to play the big drive over the infield, he didn't get to the pitch of the ball and the timing was poor

       Imran Tahir to Marsh       115/2

Imran Tahir to Marsh,OUT,Tahir appealed and then began celebrating a moment before the umpire raised the finger, because that was as plumb as it gets. Marsh was caught on the back foot by a quicker and straighter ball that skidded on and hit the pad before he could get his bat across.

       McLaren to Finch       229/3

McLaren to Finch,OUT,and he's gone. That was short outside off, and he couldn't quite control the pull from above shoulder height, and deep square leg comes in a few yards and takes the simplest of catches

       Morkel to Bailey       242/4

Morkel to Bailey,OUT,what did he do there? Bailey was opened up by this back of a length ball that straightened just outside off, and it may have bounced more than expected, and, oh my, the ball's missed his outside edge completely and hit his trouser pocket on its way through to the keeper. The umpire's finger went up immediately

       Morkel to Maxwell       253/5

Morkel to Maxwell,OUT,down the track, doesn't get to the pitch, and he's slogged that straight up in the air. AB de Villiers takes a simple catch, running a few yards to his left from mid-on

       Steyn to Haddin       268/6

Steyn to Haddin,OUT,they had a slip in, and the ball has flown into his hands at chest height. Excellent captaincy from AB, excellent ball from Steyn. It was full outside off, but not quite driving length. Haddin went hard at it with no footwork, and Amla pouches the thick outside edge

       McLaren to Smith       301/7

McLaren to Smith,OUT,backs away again, looks to go over extra cover, and he bowled it straight this time. Smith misses, McLaren hits. I think that was poor execution more than anything else, it was there to be hit

       Richardson to Amla       44/1

Richardson to Amla,OUT,and he's gone! Short, wide, and he slaps that straight into the hands of the point fielder, who dived forward to take that low down. Super catch from Smith, who already saved a boundary earlier in the over. They're checking if it's a clean catch, and while the replays aren't very good in terms of picture quality, there's nothing on them to suggest it was remotely in doubt. They're taking very long to decide, however... and finally he raises his finger after getting the go-ahead over the walkie-talkie

       Starc to de Kock       51/2

Starc to de Kock,OUT,but they had a deep square leg as well, and he bangs it in short. De Kock didn't get hold of the pull, and the top-edge drops into that man's hands as he runs in a few yards from the rope
