  South Africa innings (50 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal GC Smith* c †Prior b Broad 9 25 14 1 0 64.28
5.6 gone! brilliant catch from Prior, outside edge from Smith and Prior dives one handed in front of Owais Shah at first slip and snaffles a stunner. Sweet moment for Prior after all the talk about his keeping, there were no half measures in that effort. 25/2
View dismissal HH Gibbs c †Prior b Broad 10 14 15 2 0 66.66
3.4 gone! first breakthrough for England, Gibbs advances down the pitch but Broad dragged his length back and it takes the inside through to Prior as Gibbs tries an ungainly swing 16/1
View dismissal JH Kallis c Shah b Broad 6 20 15 1 0 40.00
7.6 gone! Broad is on fire, and England are catching everything...touch of width outside off and Kallis flashes hard, the edge flying to Shah at first slip, taking it nonchalantly to his right 26/3
View dismissal AB de Villiers lbw b Flintoff 5 39 25 0 0 20.00
14.5 got him! A fuller delivery that cuts back sharply on de Villiers, hurrying him, and he's rapped on the pads. Taufel raises his finger, and South Africa are in a sorry state here 45/5
View dismissal JP Duminy c †Prior b Broad 8 6 3 2 0 266.66
9.2 and another, four for Broad! Perfect line and length outside off, an indeterminant poke from Duminy and a thin outside edge goes through to Prior, for his third catch...late movement away from the left hander, superb spell from Broad 36/4
View dismissal MV Boucher c †Prior b Flintoff 10 33 23 1 0 43.47
16.4 got him this time! A touch fuller, Boucher is stuck on the back foot and edges it behind 50/6
View dismissal J Botha c †Prior b Broad 1 22 16 0 0 6.25
19.2 and there's his fifth! A poor shot from Botha, driving flashily outside his off stump - but again it's well bowled, cutting it back into the right-hander 53/7
View dismissal JA Morkel c †Prior b Harmison 6 30 13 1 0 46.15
21.5 and another bites the dust! Morkel plays a weak cut outside off and sends a simple edge low to Matt Prior, six in the innings for him now, great effort 72/9
View dismissal A Nel c Wright b Harmison 13 11 7 3 0 185.71
21.1 gone! strikes first ball, Nel goes for a huge heave over the leg side and only succeeds in sending it miles up in the air. Luke Wright steadies himself from mid-on to take the catch 68/8
View dismissal DW Steyn b Flintoff 6 11 6 1 0 100.00
22.6 full, straight and all over. Flintoff gets a delivery on target as Steyn misses a drive and Flintoff takes his third. 83/10
