13 January 2009 - night match (20-over match)

Hopes to Amla, no run, overpitched and Amla flashes the drive to cover, where Warner stops well


Hopes to Amla, 1 run, now a leading edge! The ball pitches straight on a good length and Amla shuffles back to flick the ball toward midwicket, except he ends up playing it just safe between three fielders on the off side


Hopes to Gibbs, no run, comes forward and drives but straight to the man


Hopes to Gibbs, OUT, and Hopes gets Gibbs! He kneels across and goes for that booming swipe only to send the ball down to Michael Hussey, running in from deep midwicket, who takes it on his knees

HH Gibbs c MEK Hussey b Hopes 6 (22m 12b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00


Hopes to Amla, 1 run, hops up and dabs a short of a length ball wide of backward point


Hopes to Duminy, no run, comes forward and streakily steers the ball towards backward point

South Africa 36/1   JR Hopes 1-0-2-1

Hopes to Duminy, 1 run, pitched up outside off stump, Duminy drives down to long-off


Hopes to Boucher, 1 run, how did that miss! David Hussey intercepts a firm cut shot from Boucher to his right at point, takes no time to release the ball but he misses the nonstrikers stumps with Boucher not even in the frame


Hopes to Duminy, 1 run, pitches a bit wider and he steers it down to third man for one


Hopes to Boucher, 1 run, uses his feet to collect on the full, driving down to Bracken at long-off


Hopes to Duminy, 1 run, another nervous single dabbed through the off side, Tait runs in and fields


Hopes to Boucher, 1 run, fails to cash in on a full toss, instead chipping in the air past midwicket

South Africa 65/3   JR Hopes 2-0-8-1

Hopes to Duminy, SIX, shot, Duminy! Hopes strays on the stumps and Duminy just helps it on its way over deep square leg for six with the most amazing pick up paddle shot, all wrists


Hopes to Duminy, 1 run, more orthodox approach now, steering a single down to deep point


Hopes to Boucher, OUT, swipes across the line and sends a top edge to Tait at backward point

MV Boucher c Tait b Hopes 19 (19m 19b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00


Hopes to Duminy, 1 run, full on the stumps and played to deep mid-off for a single


Hopes to JA Morkel, no run, stands his ground and steers the ball to Tait at deep point


Hopes to JA Morkel, 2 runs, drills a length ball straight back past mid-off, Warner runs across and dives superbly, flicking the ball to the other fielder, man he's some rock star in these parts, just listen to the cheer

South Africa 93/4   JR Hopes 3-0-18-2

Hopes to JA Morkel, no run, chases a very full and wide ball and falls down, wide not signalled?


Hopes to JA Morkel, FOUR, fetch that! Morkel clubs the ball dead straight back past Hopes, who sways out of the way to save his block being knocked off, and neither long-off nor long-on get there


Hopes to JA Morkel, 1 run, low full toss outside off stump, pushed into the covers for one


Hopes to Duminy, FOUR, swings across the line and inside edges smack past square leg


Hopes to Duminy, 1 run, fetches it from well outside off stump, doesn't connect well at all but the ball drops safely in front of David Hussey down at long-on


Hopes to JA Morkel, 1 run, low full toss on leg stump, driven wide of mid-on this time

South Africa 114/4   JR Hopes 4-0-29-2
