  South Africa innings (50 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal HM Amla c Swann b Anderson 11 28 22 2 0 50.00
6.6 gone! England have their second and a fuller length pays off as Amla flicks straight to short midwicket...that's a good fielding position for Amla who didn't get over the ball and Anderson was clearly delighted with that 24/2
View dismissal GC Smith* lbw b Broad 2 7 4 0 0 50.00
1.2 well, what an early breakthrough for England as Broad pitches the ball up and finds a hint of movement to trap Smith on the crease as he plays to leg...wasn't a huge appeal to be honest, and it didn't look stone dead, but England won't be bothered about that 6/1
View dismissal AB de Villiers lbw b Bresnan 22 51 36 4 0 61.11
13.5 England continue to strike. Much fuller and de Villiers was disappointed but the replays show the ball was clipping the top of leg. Big wicket and South Africa are in real trouble 55/4
View dismissal JP Duminy c †Prior b Anderson 6 14 10 1 0 60.00
10.3 well, that was strange! A slower-ball bouncer catches the back of Duminy's bat as he tried to guide a pull away, and the ball looped slowly to Prior. England haven't bowled all that well and the pitch is flat, but it's 35 for 3. 35/3
View dismissal AN Petersen c Wright b Broad 51 126 79 5 0 64.55
36.5 Stunner! Petersen advances but Broad sees him coming and goes short. The attempted swipe is mistimed and Luke Wright, back-peddling, timed a one-handed leap perfectly to take a pearler in his right hand. Sums up England's performance perfectly. 119/10
View dismissal MV Boucher b Anderson 13 31 23 2 0 56.52
20.6 what a ripper! That's a beauty from Anderson, holding its line and beating Boucher's outside edge to take out the off stump...almost silence around the ground as South Africa slip further 78/5
View dismissal R McLaren c Collingwood b Anderson 0 8 5 0 0 0.00
22.5 gone! Another for Anderson, that's four...South Africa in a real hole as McLaren, starved of any scoring opportunities, drives at a hint of width but can only pick out Collingwood at backward point and he wasn't going to miss that chance 78/6
View dismissal J Botha c †Prior b Anderson 1 14 8 0 0 12.50
26.2 that's five! A career-best for Anderson as it rears off a length and takes the outside edge through to Prior...that was almost unplayable and Anderson rightly takes all the plaudits 84/7
View dismissal WD Parnell c Strauss b Collingwood 1 17 14 0 0 7.14
29.5 what a stunner! Andrew Strauss has pulled off a cracking catch at backward point (normally filled by the man bowling) as he flings himself low to his left to pluck the chance inches off the turf after Parnell tried to drive square. That gives Collingwood his 100th ODI wicket and England can do no wrong today. 92/8
View dismissal M Morkel lbw b Collingwood 7 22 15 1 0 46.66
33.6 another cutter but beat Morkel's defensive stroke. It jumped a little off the pitch and a long, long appeal was finally rewarded. Morkel was a long way down but replays suggested again that the umpire was right. 112/9

View dismissal AJ Strauss* lbw b Botha 32 71 59 6 0 54.23
16.5 five balls is all it took for Botha. He beats Strauss's attempted cut with one that kept coming in with the arm and cramped him for room. Struck the pad first and it was plumb. 74/1
