View dismissal Mohammad Hafeez c Smith b Ntini 1 5 5 0 0 20.00
1.2 short of a good length delivery, all Ntini had to do was hit the right line and length, ball moved away sharply, Hafeez had no option but to play at it and the edge went straight to Smith at first slip - as expected Ntini strikes early 5/1
View dismissal Imran Farhat c Pollock b Ntini 4 19 8 0 0 50.00
3.6 once again Farhat holes out in the deep playing a half-hearted cut - short and angling across, Farhat tried to pull out of the cut shot but it was too late and the ball sailed straight to Pollock at third man. 9/2
View dismissal Younis Khan* c Langeveldt b Ntini 7 30 24 1 0 29.16
7.2 Khan finds a solution to his misery! short ball, coming in with the angle - Khan goes for the pull and ends up edging it straight up towards mid-on, Langeveldt judged it to perfection - Ntini gets one more to his name and Pakistan's slump continues 21/4
View dismissal Mohammad Yousuf b Pollock 5 12 8 1 0 62.50
6.5 finally he gets his man, that too with a beauty! good length delivery, this one hit the deck and nipped back in. Yousuf pushed forward in an effort to negate the swing but he made the cardinal mistake of leaving a big gap between bat and pad and there followed the dreadful sound of timber breaking 17/3
View dismissal Shoaib Malik c †Boucher b Ntini 0 5 3 0 0 0.00
7.4 another one bites the dust! short delivery down the leg side, Malik has a poke at it and the ball goes behind off the glove - Boucher had to dive full length to his left, he was at full stretch and horizontal to the ground when he took it - unbelievable stuff, easily one of the best catches I have ever seen 21/5
View dismissal Kamran Akmal lbw b Ntini 1 11 8 0 0 12.50
9.6 Cometh the hour, cometh the man - Ntini on the rampage here! good length delivery, this one just jagged back off the track and Akmal is trapped stone dead - easy one for Billy. Pakistan six down - South Africa need just four more to wrap this up 27/6
View dismissal Abdul Razzaq b Langeveldt 5 32 20 1 0 25.00
14.4 now what can i say! good length delivery, seamed in sharply and Razzaq was beaten by the movement, plays an awkward looking defensive shot, ball clips the inside edge, kisses the pad and crashes into the stumps - Langeveldt picks up a wicket in his first over and South Africa are just two wickets away from the semis 47/8
View dismissal Shahid Afridi lbw b Pollock 14 9 8 1 1 175.00
12.1 that's the end of that ! a skidder, pitched on middle and off and angling in, Afridi makes room and swings hard, again the bat was nowhere near the line of the ball but this time the result is fatal - ball hits the pad in-line with the leg stump and the loud appeal is upheld by umpire Benson 42/7
View dismissal Yasir Arafat c Ntini b Langeveldt 27 62 37 5 0 72.97
24.6 All over! short ball banged in outside off stump, Yasir falls back and slashes hard, ends up hitting high in the air towards thirdman, Ntini runs across and takes an easy catch. South Africa win by 124 runs 89/10
