That's drinks. 65-35 to SA at the moment. A wicket in the next 15 minutes will make it 55-45. Over to Sid Ravindran for the next passage of play. Please throw the kitchen sink at him. Meanwhile, I shall head across to Chatterbox.
Oram to Kallis, no run, fuller length on off stump, Kallis looks to place the drive to the left of cover by using the wrists, but can't get it away.
Oram to Kallis, no run, length ball on off again, Oram's being quite accurate and Kallis plays him away to the off side carefully
David: "I think everyone's being a bit unfair; after all it's not obvious what 'kitchen sink' means in this context. To clarify, it's actually spelled 'Kitchen Cinq,' 'cinq' being of course French for 5. In the Olympic cricket final of 1908, between England and France, one Stanley Kitchen needed to score quite quickly, but didn't want to risk lofting the ball over the field. His solution was to pick out the longest boundary and hit the ball with just enough power so that it didn't reach the boundary before the batsmen had run five. His success was such taht the ploy was named after him."
David, take a bow!
Oram to Kallis, no run, over-pitched outside off, Kallis mistimes the big cover drive and finds the man inside the circle.
Oram to Kallis, 2 runs, aha, Oram bends one a long way in, Kallis whips backward of square leg even as he seemed to be falling over in an attempt to play the shot. Gets a couple to deep backward square leg
Oram to Kallis, no run, fuller and inviting the drive, Kallis plays it straight to cover with authority
Oram to Kallis, no run, short of a length outside off, Kallis stays on the crease and plays it out to point
