View dismissal HH Gibbs c Hopes b Hilfenhaus 7 18 15 0 0 46.66

View dismissal SE Marsh c Amla b Tsotsobe 5 8 11 1 0 45.45
1.5 sharp catch at short midwicket! Tsotsobe gets a wicket in his first over in ODI cricket, and it comes down to a good low take by Amla, because Marsh had flicked the full ball strongly off his pads but found an alert Amla plucking inches off the turf 10/1
View dismissal DA Warner run out (Parnell) 22 58 29 1 1 75.86
12.2 Parnell to MEK Hussey, another one, and the young debutant makes his presence felt immediately! Parnell overpitches, Hussey bunts it back dead straight, the ball flicks Parnell's fingers on the way down and deflects onto the stumps with Warner out of his crease 53/4
View dismissal RT Ponting* c †de Villiers b Tsotsobe 12 25 20 2 0 60.00
7.3 top-edged and well taken by de Villiers! Tsotsobe gets another, and a good one to get too, banging in a short-pitched delivery which Ponting top-edges back over de Villiers head, but he keeps his eyes locked on the swirler and pouches it as he falls onto his knees 35/2
View dismissal MJ Clarke b M Morkel 0 5 4 0 0 0.00
8.4 played on ... or shall I say left on! Morne pitches it up and gets a hint of swing, Clarke starts to leave but doesn't twirl the bat out of the way in time and drags it back onto off stump 35/3
View dismissal MEK Hussey b Tsotsobe 78 123 96 5 1 81.25
38.4 what a comeback from Lonwabo Tsotsobe! Keeps his cool after being doled out for some punishment, holds back the pace and pitches short of a length, Hussey comes charging out and misses as the ball stays a touch low and knocks out his leg stump 174/6
View dismissal DJ Hussey c Botha b Duminy 32 62 51 1 0 62.74
29.3 tossed up outside off stump and David cannot keep the drive down, instead hitting it straight to the captain who takes a simple catch at short cover 122/5
View dismissal BJ Haddin c Tsotsobe b Parnell 63 92 50 5 1 126.00
47.5 maiden wicket for Parnell, pitches in on a length and Haddin chips the ball up in the air, Tsotsobe runs after it from short fine leg and holds on near the ropes at fine leg 244/9
View dismissal JR Hopes b Botha 11 23 14 0 0 78.57
43.3 of all things, Hopes has missed a low full toss! Botha serves it up and gets it to dip and Hopes plays all over it as he goes for a flick to the on side, the ball hits middle and leg 218/7
View dismissal MG Johnson c & b Tsotsobe 5 18 9 0 0 55.55
46.2 well now, a bit of confusion and Tsotsobe has four on debut! Clever bowling, fires in a yorker on leg stump, Johnson closes the face early and the ball pops back to Tsotsobe, who collects it and then feigns a throw back to Johnson, suddenly from backward point Gibbs appeals and gets Tsotsobe interested, it is referred, and yes indeed Johnson scooped a clean catch back to the bowler 237/8
View dismissal NW Bracken c sub (DW Steyn) b M Morkel 5 13 8 0 0 62.50
48.6 all over and we have a new number one in one-day international cricket! Bracken pulls a high full toss out to the substitute Steyn at wide long-on and South Africa win 4-1! 249/10
