NatWest Series [South Africa in England] - 2nd ODI

England v South Africa

South Africa won by 80 runs

19.2

Bresnan to Smith, OUT, swings across the line, top-edged ... and gone! Bresnan has broken through, banging it in short as Smith skipped down the pitch, he tried to hook but the ball ballooned high into the air, over the wicketkeeper, with Kieswetter running back to settle underneath and take a safe catch

GC Smith c †Kieswetter b Bresnan 52 (82m 76b 5x4 0x6) SR: 68.42

South Africa 89/1   HM Amla 37* (40b 4x4)   TT Bresnan 3.2-0-24-1

25.6

Swann to Amla, OUT, Amla calls for one but it isn't there and Duminy is run out! It was clipped through the leg side from outside off, Amla thought it had beaten midwicket and set off only for Anderson to reel the ball in and hurl it to Kieswetter, Duminy wasn't even in the picture, though he is sacrificed in favour of the senior man

JP Duminy run out 14 (27m 24b 1x4 0x6) SR: 58.33

South Africa 121/2   HM Amla 51* (56b 5x4)   GP Swann 4-0-17-0

33.5

Swann to Elgar, OUT, gone! Lovely bowling. Tossed up slower by Swann, it gripped off the surface and spun past the outside edge to take middle stump

D Elgar b Swann 15 (29m 28b 1x4 0x6) SR: 53.57

South Africa 165/3   HM Amla 80* (75b 7x4)   GP Swann 7.5-0-38-1

43.4

Swann to de Villiers, OUT, bowled him! De Villiers advanced as Swann sent down a non-turner, it dipped late on the batsman, who played across the line and the ball skittered through low to thump into the base of off stump. Swann gets his man after an over's reprieve

AB de Villiers b Swann 28 (43m 29b 1x4 0x6) SR: 96.55

South Africa 230/4   HM Amla 115* (105b 12x4)   GP Swann 9.4-0-48-2

49.4

Finn to Amla, OUT, short and slow, Amla backs away and tries to ramp the ball over short third man but it hasn't got enough pace on it and Bresnan pouches. After another everyday display of magnificence, Amla departs

HM Amla c Bresnan b Finn 150 (209m 124b 16x4 0x6) SR: 120.96

South Africa 285/5   F du Plessis 20* (17b 2x4)   ST Finn 9.4-0-57-1
