  South Africa innings (50 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal GC Smith* b Taylor 19 24 23 3 0 82.60
5.1 what a beauty. An inswinger right through Smith, clipping his pads on the way through to his off stump. He was caught in his crease there 27/1
View dismissal LE Bosman c Gayle b Samuels 39 101 58 6 0 67.24
22.3 the bowling change works! Bosman tried to flick the ball into the leg side, caught a leading edge and it gently looped to Gayle at extra cover. Another much-needed breakthrough as Bosman had overcome his poor start and was beginning to cut loose 96/3
View dismissal JH Kallis c Sarwan b Bravo 16 50 38 3 0 42.10
16.4 and there it is! And that is a brilliant, brilliant wicket for West Indies. They've earned that during the past few overs with some good lines from the bowlers and alert fielding in the covers. Kallis loses his composure, has a wipe across the line to a good-length ball, and Ramnaresh Sarwan clings onto a steepling top-edge at third man 65/2
View dismissal HH Gibbs c Lara b Bravo 77 124 90 4 1 85.55
49.4 yet another slower ball which Gibbs looks to send towards the city centre but he catches it high on the bat and Lara is under the skier half-a-dozen yards in at long on 256/8
View dismissal AB de Villiers run out (Lara) 46 57 57 3 0 80.70
40.3 from Bradshaw, de Villiers, cramped as Bradshaw fires one at his feet, squirts it into the leg side and Lara at midwicket scores a direct hit with one-and-a-half stumps to aim at. The third umpire has to work hard. It takes several replays before he makes his call. From one angle he appears in, from another out. Andrew Miller screams out ... and Daryl Harper agrees! 188/4
View dismissal JM Kemp b Bradshaw 3 5 7 0 0 42.85
42.2 Bradshaw breaks through. Nothing complex about that, it came back a fraction, Kemp played down the wrong line and it bowled him through a rather-too-large gap between bat and pad 195/5
View dismissal MV Boucher c Sarwan b Samuels 16 11 11 1 1 145.45
45.2 short, Boucher looked to smack it straight but it sounded as if he might have clipped the ground as he brought his bat through and the ball flew high into the covers where Sarwan took a good catch over his shoulder 219/6
View dismissal SM Pollock b Taylor 4 4 4 0 0 100.00
46.4 it was straight, it was pitched up, and it was missed by the batsman. Pollock had to go for it and doing so against Taylor when he is on song is a tough ask 227/7

S Chanderpaul retired hurt 57 116 70 4 1 81.42
25.6 Kallis to Gayle, even Gayle's streaky shots are finding the boundary! A massive heave through the offside, but an under-edge goes through to fine leg! 154/0
View dismissal RR Sarwan lbw b Ntini 27 28 27 6 0 100.00
33.6 gone! Sarwan rather fell over to a full-pitched delivery, swinging into Sarwan and angling further into his pads off the pitch. Ntini roars an appeal and it's been given...a touch fortunate, perhaps? Appeared to be angling down the leg side but, no, replays indicate it was a mighty splendid decision. 196/1
View dismissal DJ Bravo run out (Smith) 15 18 11 3 0 136.36
37.3 from Peterson, he skips down the pitch but is beaten by the spin, the ball coming off his pad and ballooning to Graeme Smith at first slip who throws down the stumps and Bravo's dive is in vain. Utterly unnecessary 226/2
View dismissal BC Lara* c & b Smith 9 11 10 1 0 90.00
40.4 gosh, now that's a surprise! Smith has got the big man! Another loopy delivery, and a loose drive is embedded in the bowler's midriff 243/3
View dismissal RS Morton c de Villiers b Peterson 0 2 5 0 0 0.00
41.4 good grief, that is village! Gayle is cruising at the other end, but Morton wanted to finish the job himself, but instead his big smear ends up in the hands of short midwicket. Brainless batting, I'm afraid to say, and it was somewhat telegraphed 244/4
