England won by 28 runs
12 September 2012 - night match (20-over match)

Parnell to Lumb, OUT, out goes middle stump! Length ball nips back and beats Lumb's attempted off drive, he was playing with the bat a long way away from the pads, didn't get his foot out to the ball and the quick, off stump ball seamed in and smashed down middle pole

MJ Lumb b Parnell 5 (8m 4b 1x4 0x6) SR: 125.00

England 20/1   C Kieswetter 9* (5b 2x4)   WD Parnell 0.3-0-4-1

Botha to Wright, OUT, short run, just the one step, slugged high, high in the air and Amla takes it well at point. Good catch that coming across from short third man as Wright tried to go big over the top and skied it off an outside edge

LJ Wright c Amla b Botha 6 (15m 10b 0x4 0x6) SR: 60.00

England 43/2   C Kieswetter 19* (15b 3x4)   J Botha 0.5-0-5-1

Botha to Morgan, OUT, down the wicket, smashed straight up in the air and caught by long off coming in 20 yards off the rope, just didn't get it Morgan and pumped it high into the sky and the catch was well held

EJG Morgan c Ontong b Botha 5 (14m 9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 55.55

England 64/3   C Kieswetter 35* (27b 3x4 1x6)   J Botha 2.2-0-9-2

M Morkel to Kieswetter, OUT, now tries the Buttler scoop and gets bowled falling outside off stump, beaten for pace really and a full ball strikes middle and off stumps

C Kieswetter b M Morkel 50 (51m 32b 3x4 3x6) SR: 156.25

England 112/4   JC Buttler 31* (9b 2x4 3x6)   M Morkel 1.2-0-22-1

M Morkel to Bairstow, OUT, another middle stump goes flying gets this absolutely bang on does Morkel and Bairstow tried to angle to third man again but missed the fast yorker perfectly on target, there's the Morkel we know and love

JM Bairstow b M Morkel 4 (2m 2b 1x4 0x6) SR: 200.00

England 116/5   JC Buttler 31* (9b 2x4 3x6)   M Morkel 1.4-0-26-2
