24 September 2011 - day/night match (20-over match)

Langeveldt to Warner, OUT, Finally a catch sticks. Owais Shah is the first man, relived I am sure, to run to Ontong at deep midwicket. This is a slower short ball, Warner pulls in the air to offer a sitter to deep midwicket

DA Warner c Ontong b Langeveldt 20 (24m 13b 1x4 1x6) SR: 153.84

New South Wales 41/1   SR Watson 20* (17b 3x4)   CK Langeveldt 1.5-0-20-1

Peterson to Watson, OUT, Peterson has been teasing Watson with his flight, and Watson has been trying to hit him into the Wallajah Road. Peterson prevails. Again he leaves this hanging in the air, a tempted Watson gets ready for the slog sweep, but the ball never arrives. or at least not until Watson has completed his shot. The middle stump is hit

SR Watson b Peterson 34 (38m 29b 4x4 1x6) SR: 117.24

New South Wales 65/2   DLR Smith 9* (8b 1x4)   RJ Peterson 2.1-0-12-1

Kemp to Katich, OUT, and he has dismissed the opposition captain first ball. This is a gently paced delivery floated outside off, Katich gets room to free his arms and decides to go over cover. JP Duminy, in the deep, starts running in before back-pedalling to finish this overhead and a final backwards dive

SM Katich c Duminy b Kemp 7 (8m 9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 77.77

New South Wales 82/3   DLR Smith 18* (11b 1x4 1x6)   JM Kemp 0.1-0-0-1

Philander to DLR Smith, OUT, Philander is making up for his ordinary fielding earlier. He is 2.2-0-15-1 now. This is short of a length but stumps to stumps. Smith pulls across it, makes no contact, and Philander takes the stumps

DLR Smith b Philander 24 (27m 16b 2x4 1x6) SR: 150.00

New South Wales 90/4   SPD Smith 1* (2b)   VD Philander 2.2-0-15-1

Philander to Rohrer, OUT, One more for Philander. He has done nothing extraordinary with the ball, but he has been extraordinary with his stump-to-stump line. Another batsman, Rohrer this time, gets impatient, swings optimistically, and Philander hits the stumps

BJ Rohrer b Philander 8 (8m 9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 88.88

New South Wales 102/5   SPD Smith 5* (8b)   VD Philander 3.5-0-21-2

Langeveldt to SPD Smith, OUT, Another one suffers the slow death. This ball is holding up in the surface and the stroke-play seems extremely difficult with this semi-new ball. At least that's what these batsmen have made it look like. Smith finally gets a length ball, gets under it, tries to go over long-off but has got more elevation on it than length

SPD Smith c Gibbs b Langeveldt 16 (30m 19b 1x4 0x6) SR: 84.21

New South Wales 123/6   MC Henriques 9* (17b)   CK Langeveldt 3.3-0-31-2

Steyn to O'Keefe, OUT, Gone. O'Keefe shapes up for the scoop, Steyn bowls a wide slower one, he tries to lob this over third man, Shah gets an easy catch at point. O'Keefe will have a role to play with the ball on this slow pitch

SNJ O'Keefe c Shah b Steyn 1 (6m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

New South Wales 135/7   MC Henriques 18* (22b 1x4)   DW Steyn 3.5-0-26-1

Steyn to Henriques, OUT, Finally Steyn bowls at regulation pace, beats Henriques's attempt to scoop, collects the throw from the keeper to run Henriques out who has belatedly decided to run a bye

MC Henriques run out 18 (25m 23b 1x4 0x6) SR: 78.26

New South Wales 135/8   NM Hauritz 0* (0b)   DW Steyn 4-0-26-1
