View dismissal AB de Villiers c Naved-ul-Hasan b Shahid Afridi 67 112 78 8 2 85.89
23.3 gone! This one's looped up outside off stump, down onto bended knee goes de Villiers, looking to clout that into the deep midwicket stands, but he only finds the fielder stationed near the ropes, Rana, who jumps up and takes a neat catch 167/3
View dismissal GC Smith* st †Kamran Akmal b Mohammad Hafeez 72 91 47 15 0 153.19
18.2 stumped second ball, and the spinner does the damage! It was a brave move, as the PowerPlay was on, but Hafeez backs his instincts, firing a quicker, flatter one outside off stump and getting Smith to leave his crease, eyeing the big hit to the onside, and all Akmal has to do is whip off the bails 140/1
View dismissal LE Bosman c †Kamran Akmal b Mohammad Hafeez 4 3 3 1 0 133.33
18.5 got em! Hafeez! This one's not got much on it, but it lands on a good length just outside off stump, and Bosman, perhaps looking for the turn, plays at it off the backfoot and gets the thinnest of edges into a gleeful Akmal's gloves 144/2
JH Kallis not out 88 120 85 2 4 103.52
View dismissal AG Prince c Abdul Razzaq b Shahid Afridi 39 45 48 2 0 81.25
37.2 this time he gets him! Again Afridi loops this one up invitingly and Prince cant resist, having another heave to leg but getting underneath it, the ball goes up in the air and Razzaq moves in from wide long-on to hold it with ease 235/4
View dismissal MV Boucher c Inzamam-ul-Haq b Naved-ul-Hasan 78 45 38 9 4 205.26
47.4 gone! A slow off break outside off stump, Boucher reaches for it and can only slam it to Inzamam at cover, who holds onto a simple catch with those safe bear hands, but what an innings from this man! It all ended so tamely after the fireworks he displayed! 78 from 38 deliveries! 363/5
View dismissal JM Kemp c †Kamran Akmal b Naved-ul-Hasan 11 9 7 2 0 157.14
49.1 and he gets a wicket! He serves up a slow legbreak out the back of the hand, cleverly done but way too late in the innings, Kemp was well into his shot before the ball came onto him, getting down to slog-sweep it away, but getting a top-edge which Akmal moves across to his right to snap up 380/6

View dismissal Mohammad Hafeez c Smith b Ntini 21 14 17 3 0 123.52
3.2 edged and gone! Ntini perseveres with the fuller delivery and gets Hafeez stuck neither here not there, just getting half-cock forward with minimal foot movement and feeling for the ball outside off stump, and the result is an outside edge into Smith's lap at first slip 27/1
View dismissal Kamran Akmal c Prince b Pollock 13 26 15 1 0 86.66
6.1 what a catch! Pollock drops this one in short outside off stump, Akmal gets into position and pulls well, but Prince times his jump at square leg brilliantly and grabs it out of the air 37/2
View dismissal Younis Khan c & b Ntini 13 37 14 0 1 92.85
11.1 reflex catch! Its full and moving in, and Younis stands and drives back in the air to Ntini, who dives to his left and holds a neat chance that was coming at him fast 70/4
View dismissal Shahid Afridi c Nel b Ntini 17 15 14 2 1 121.42
9.1 no hundred here, as Afridi gets under a short-pitched delivery and slogs it high in the air, the steepling top-edge goes up and comes down near third man, where three men converge but its Andre Nel who holds his nerves and takes an excellent, well-judged diving catch to send Afridi back 56/3
View dismissal Mohammad Yousuf c Smith b Nel 39 37 25 5 2 156.00
16.5 this time he's gone! Yousuf charges down the track, looking to smack it over the ring, but he doesnt get to the pitch and ends up hitting across the line with one hand and finding Smith standing just inside the circle 119/5
View dismissal Inzamam-ul-Haq* c sub (AJ Hall) b Kallis 15 33 18 3 0 83.33
17.2 Inzamam perishes to the hook, oh boy! Kallis decides to tempt him with the short-pitched delivery, theres a man positioned out in the deep for this, yet still Inzamam obliges by pulling it down the throat of Andrew Hall, diving and pulling off a stunning catch at deep square leg 119/6
Shoaib Malik not out 52 119 84 3 2 61.90
View dismissal Abdul Razzaq c Peterson b Kallis 6 11 8 1 0 75.00
19.4 as easy as they come! Kallis drops one in short and Razzaq just stands and wafts at it, the ball stands up a little more than he probably thought, and the ball just balloons up in the air for square leg to stand his ground and hold a dolly 125/7
View dismissal Naved-ul-Hasan c †Boucher b Kallis 0 2 2 0 0 0.00
19.6 edged and gone! This one's fuller and much straighter, Rana sort of comes forward and pokes at it with an angled bat, and Boucher takes the regulation edge 125/8
View dismissal Mohammad Sami c †Boucher b Peterson 46 76 64 5 1 71.87
39.5 gone! Tossed up again, Sami plants the front leg forward and takes his eyes off the ball, slogging it up around the corner in an attempt to sweep, Boucher moves to his left and takes the catch 198/9
View dismissal Mohammad Asif c Prince b Smith 2 35 19 0 0 10.52
46.4 all over, thankfully! Tossed up outside off stump, Asif slogs at it and gets a top-edge, Prince at slip back-peddles and takes the catch, and South Africa win by 164 runs! 228/10
