ICC Cricket World Cup - 21st match, Group B

England v South Africa

England won by 6 runs

8.1

Kallis to Bopara, 1 run, greeted by an elegant pull as he drops short on off stump...Bopara sends it through square leg

8.2

Kallis to Trott, no run, much fuller this time outside off, defended into the covers

8.3

Kallis to Trott, no run, full on middle and off, defended down to mid-on

8.4

Kallis to Trott, 2 runs, that was fairly straight but it's neatly whipped through the leg side and they get a shift on between the wickets

8.5

Kallis to Trott, 5 wides, that's a bouncer that has gone wrong...banged in very short and it's miles over the batsman's head as well as going down the leg side. Keeper couldn't do much

8.5

Kallis to Trott, no run, a slower ball which is dug out back to the bowler who fields one-handed and throws it back to the keeper

8.6

Kallis to Trott, 1 run, worked through the leg side again out to deep square

England 32/3   JH Kallis 1-0-9-0

10.1

Kallis to Trott, no run, full on middle and off, defended down to mid-on

10.2

Kallis to Trott, no run, risky from Trott as he moves towards the leg side and exposes his stumps the guides the ball to point

10.3

Kallis to Trott, 1 run, whipped off his hip down to long leg

10.4

Kallis to Bopara, no run, comes across the crease and turns the ball to square leg...he doesn't want to miss one of those shots. Big lbw candidate.

10.5

Kallis to Bopara, 1 run, back of a length on off stump, gives Bopara time to work it onto the leg side

10.6

Kallis to Trott, 1 run, an over of leg-side whips is completed by another which goes out to deep square

England 36/3   JH Kallis 2-0-12-0

30.1

Kallis to Prior, no run, pushed into the leg side

30.2

Kallis to Prior, no run, back of a length, defended back down the pitch

30.3

Kallis to Prior, no run, good line, keeps Prior in defence as he plays straight

30.4

Kallis to Prior, no run, punched firmly off the back foot to cover...building more pressure on England after that wicket

30.5

Kallis to Prior, no run, a slower ball outside off, left alone and it doesn't carry to van Wyk

30.6

Kallis to Prior, no run, fuller on off stump and defended to complete a good maiden

England 115/4   JH Kallis 3-1-12-0

32.1

Kallis to Bopara, no run, full outside off, driven to backward point

32.2

Kallis to Bopara, no run, hint of inswing, maybe reverse swing, and Bopara turns it to midwicket

32.3

Kallis to Bopara, no run, width outside off but he can't time his cut as there's no pace to work with and it dribbles to cover

32.4

Kallis to Bopara, 1 run, waits longer this time and opens the face to third man

32.5

Kallis to Prior, no run, punched back down the pitch and Kallis dives to his right to make a good save

32.6

Kallis to Prior, 1 run, this time he finds space straight down the ground and keeps the strike

England 122/4   JH Kallis 4-1-14-0
