View dismissal DA Warner b Steyn 20 12 17 4 0 117.64
2.5 that's a comeback! Steyn strikes. Back on a good length, draws Warner onto the front foot and there's a hint of swing into the left hander which takes the inside edge into leg stump 21/1
View dismissal RT Ponting c Botha b Steyn 63 118 77 9 0 81.81
26.2 picks out backward point. It was full and wide, Ponting connected quite well but Botha didn't have to move too far to his right 159/3
View dismissal MJ Clarke* run out (Botha) 44 83 48 5 2 91.66
21.1 Botha to Ponting, backing up, what a way to go! We've seen a few of these of late. Ponting used his feet, drilled it down the pitch where Botha got a hand on it and Clarke was backing up well out of his crease 123/2

View dismissal GC Smith lbw b Bollinger 4 3 5 1 0 80.00
0.5 gone! Bollinger wins the battle again, Smith plays across the line and is given lbw. Smith considers a review but after asking Amla he walks off. It looked out. 4/1
View dismissal HM Amla* c †Haddin b Marsh 24 45 32 2 1 75.00
9.5 another one goes! And with a fine catch. South Africa falling apart. Was full and fairly wide, Amla chased it and got an edge through to Brad Haddin who took a super catch, one-handed, diving in front of first slip 55/4
View dismissal JH Kallis b Cummins 15 29 15 1 1 100.00
7.3 big wicket! Cummins keeps taking wickets. It was full outside off, Kallis went for a drive and got a thick inside into the stumps. Not a bad scalp to start your ODI career with 40/2
View dismissal JP Duminy c Clarke b Cummins 4 4 2 1 0 200.00
7.5 gone! He's got Duminy again. He was trying to pull his bat away from the delivery outside off, but it was too late and it ran off the face to second slip who held a sharp catch. 44/3
View dismissal F du Plessis c Hussey b Johnson 27 44 20 3 0 135.00
17.1 Faf goes on the attack, but he slices across the attempted loft and the ball loops out to Mike Hussey at deep cover. South Africa sink further. They need to reach 172 by the 20th over to be par on D/L now 93/7
View dismissal DA Miller c Clarke b Doherty 11 13 12 0 0 91.66
12.6 was this a catch? Miller stepped away and drove hard square of the wicket, the ball landing in point's waiting hands. But was it a bump ball? Doherty appeals but the umpire's not convinced. Eventually they go upstairs, and that's out! 74/5
View dismissal MV Boucher lbw b Doherty 1 7 4 0 0 25.00
14.1 there's an appeal from Doherty as Boucher misses a flick to leg and is hit on the pads, but it's quickly quashed. How close was this? Doherty doesn't look that confident, but Clarke wants to review it. Yep, it pitched in line and would've taken out middle and leg, Boucher is out! 80/6
View dismissal J Botha hit wicket b Cummins 25 29 22 3 1 113.63
20.1 he's trodden on his stumps! Cummins has his third. Early in his career to get a hit wicket. Botha went back and across then pulled a short ball away, but the in process of playing the stroke his back foot when into the base of stumps 119/9
View dismissal DW Steyn c Bollinger b Johnson 5 11 9 1 0 55.55
19.4 Steyn perishes in search of runs! Johnson pulled his length back and Steyn slashed hard into an uppercut, but could only spoon the ball down to Bollinger at third man. Good catch by the lanky fast bowler, and South Africa lose another one 118/8
M Morkel not out 1 14 2 0 0 50.00
View dismissal LL Tsotsobe c Marsh b Johnson 4 9 9 1 0 44.44
21.6 that's the game! Tsotsobe tries to launch this down the ground but only manages to send it straight up in the air and Marsh steadied himself under the catch back-tracking from mid-off 129/10
