Played at Sophia Gardens, Cardiff (neutral venue)
14 June 2013 (50-over match)

Rampaul to Ingram, FOUR, short-arm pull. Ingram has got used to the monotonous shortish bowling, and sets himself up for the pull, takes it rib high, and sends it over square leg

South Africa 9/0   CA Ingram 4* (7b 1x4)   R Rampaul 1.1-0-6-0

Best to Amla, FOUR, length ball, into the pads, asking to be punished, and Amla has timed this away beautifully through midwicket. You don;t want to be bowling there, Tino

South Africa 19/0   HM Amla 6* (7b 1x4)   TL Best 1.3-0-10-0

Rampaul to Ingram, FOUR, Ingram goes after this. Not too short, but it is wide enough for him to swing his arms, and he square-drives it over backward point

South Africa 25/0   CA Ingram 14* (16b 2x4)   R Rampaul 2.3-0-13-0

DJ Bravo to Amla, FOUR, wide length ball, he goes after it, the ball flies off the outside half of the bat, and beats point

South Africa 64/0   HM Amla 19* (21b 2x4)   DJ Bravo 0.1-0-5-0

Sammy to Ingram, FOUR, too short, too slow, too wide, and Ingram has pulled it disdainfully over midwicket. What a time to bring up fifty, Colin

South Africa 80/0   CA Ingram 51* (46b 3x4 2x6)   DJG Sammy 2-0-18-0

Narine to Ingram, FOUR, short of a length, turning away, Ingram goes for the cut, gets a thick edge wide of the slip and fine of short third man

South Africa 90/1   CA Ingram 56* (49b 4x4 2x6)   SP Narine 2.5-0-21-0

Samuels to Ingram, FOUR, poor ball. Short, wide, he rocks back, and cuts it to the right of point

South Africa 97/1   CA Ingram 63* (52b 5x4 2x6)   MN Samuels 1.2-0-9-1

Samuels to Ingram, FOUR, is that dropped? No it hasn't been dropped, but the edge would have gone straight to the slip had it been there. He goes for the cut, and gets a thick one past the wicketkeeper

South Africa 101/1   CA Ingram 67* (55b 6x4 2x6)   MN Samuels 1.5-0-13-1

Best to de Villiers, FOUR, full toss at 146ks, on off, AB needs no second invitations. Driven through cover, wide enough of deep cover, for four

South Africa 122/1   AB de Villiers 21* (14b 1x4 1x6)   TL Best 5-0-35-0

DJ Bravo to du Plessis, FOUR, wide length ball, du Plessis has driven it on the up, and between mid-off and cover. That looks so much like something de Villiers would do

South Africa 132/3   F du Plessis 4* (2b 1x4)   DJ Bravo 2-0-15-1

DJ Bravo to de Villiers, FOUR, through midwicket. Short of a length, pulled away powerfully, but it is only just to the right of little Bravo at midwicket. I think he doesn't even get a touch to it

South Africa 149/3   AB de Villiers 36* (24b 2x4 1x6)   DJ Bravo 3-0-25-1

Narine to Miller, FOUR, poor delivery. Too short, too wide, cut away hard, in front of deep point. Gets four for it

South Africa 172/4   DA Miller 11* (12b 1x4)   SP Narine 6.3-0-41-0

Pollard to du Plessis, FOUR, down the wicket, Pollard bounces him, he still goes after it, and top-edges it over the keeper's head. How IPL is enriching batsmanship

South Africa 196/4   F du Plessis 28* (25b 2x4 1x6)   KA Pollard 2.1-0-15-1

Pollard to du Plessis, FOUR, loopy slower ball at 60mph. It would have been a wide had du Plessis not gone on his knee and driven this wide of long-off for four

South Africa 220/4   F du Plessis 34* (30b 3x4 1x6)   KA Pollard 3.5-0-29-1
