ICC Cricket World Cup, 2010/11 / Commentary

ICC Cricket World Cup - 7th match, Group B

South Africa v West Indies

South Africa won by 7 wickets (with 43 balls remaining)

7.1

Kallis to DM Bravo, FOUR, and what a welcome he gets, disdain from Bravo as he flat bats a not so short ball over wide mid-on, emphatic!

7.2

Kallis to DM Bravo, no run, chopped towards backward point

7.3

Kallis to DM Bravo, FOUR, what a shot from Bravo, a length ball and Bravo dismisses that one towards wide long-off, dismissive

7.4

Kallis to DM Bravo, 2 runs, and once more Bravo looks to smash Kallis, he doesn't quite get hold of it and spoons the ball beyond mid-off, this is one confident young man

7.5

Kallis to DM Bravo, no run

7.6

Kallis to DM Bravo, no run, targets the off stump this time, defended by Bravo down the track

West Indies 39/1   JH Kallis 1-0-10-0

9.1

Kallis to Smith, no run, a quieter start to this Kallis over, blocked off the front foot towards extra cover

9.2

Kallis to Smith, 1 run, full and sliding into leg, Smith stays in the crease and eases the ball towards midwicket for a single

9.3

Kallis to DM Bravo, 1 run, length ball just outside off, Bravo is content to open the face and get the ball down to third man for a single

9.4

Kallis to Smith, no run, Kallis keeps nagging around off, Bravo plays it towards backward point, and a flurry of screaming from the batsmen before it was decided to not go for the single

9.5

Kallis to Smith, no run, bangs in the bouncer, Kallis showing no signs of the side strain that kept him out of the India one-dayers, Smith goes for the pull but doesn't connect

9.6

Kallis to Smith, no run, a far less action-packed Kallis over comes to an end, Smith defends

West Indies 44/1   JH Kallis 2-0-12-0

11.1

Kallis to DM Bravo, 1 run, angling in to the batsman, who makes a bit of room and guides the ball behind backward point to bring up the half-century

11.2

Kallis to Smith, 1 run, dabbed down to third man, not much room from Kallis but the batsman just waited on it and guided it down

11.3

Kallis to DM Bravo, FOUR, can't think of a more contrasting shot to the previous one, this one is a murderous pull in front of square, Bravo doesn't rate Kallis as a bowler it seems, the fifty stand is up, Kallis won't be bowling too many short balls to Bravo from now

11.4

Kallis to DM Bravo, 1 run, back to nudging it down to third man, just a bit of width and an easy single is taken

11.5

Kallis to Smith, 1 run, Smith doesn't bother himself with niceties like footwork, as he gropes outside off, sends the ball towards backward point

11.6

Kallis to DM Bravo, 1 run, cramps the batsman up with the leg stump line, awkwardly played towards mid-on, 'Yeah, yeah' is the call and a single is taken

West Indies 58/1   JH Kallis 3-0-21-0
