27 November 2009 - day/night match (50-over match)
  South Africa innings (50 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal HM Amla c †Prior b Broad 86 131 92 7 0 93.47
31.3 Well, out of nowhere England have a wicket. Short again and Amla gets a faint inside edge on a pull shot which is collected eagerly by Prior. Surprise for everyone that. Amla played well again today but will be disappointed not to go on. 201/2
View dismissal GC Smith* b Wright 54 80 56 6 0 96.42
18.3 there's the breakthrough, and Smith will be furious with himself. A premeditated step to leg gave him room for a swipe through the covers, but Wright kept his nerve, zeroed in on the top of off, and a faint under-edge takes out the stump! 107/1
View dismissal AB de Villiers c Trott b Broad 121 117 85 14 0 142.35
45.5 and that, at last, is that. Another drive, but this time he got underneath the lofted stroke, and Jonathan Trott at extra cover settles the issue. 312/4
View dismissal JP Duminy c Morgan b Wright 6 21 15 0 0 40.00
35.3 you have to say that was coming. Duminy had been trying to force the pace for several overs without success, and this time he hoisted a short ball straight down the throat of deep square leg. 217/3
AN Petersen not out 51 67 40 5 0 127.50
View dismissal MV Boucher c Wright b Broad 22 17 11 2 1 200.00
49.3 well, that's a jammy dismissal! A horrible full-toss, Boucher takes on the midwicket boundary, but Wright - staring into the sun - clings onto a bullet-like chance, and England have a bonus breakthrough 349/5
View dismissal R McLaren b Broad 0 3 1 0 0 0.00
49.6 and they won't beat that total! Broad serves up a yorker to rattle the stumps and wrap up the innings. A first-baller for Ryan McLaren, and a mountain to climb for England 354/6

  England innings (target: 355 runs from 50 overs) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal AJ Strauss* c †Boucher b Morkel 24 39 24 4 0 100.00
8.6 Morkel strikes! Full and wide and Strauss chased it but could only feather an edge through to Boucher. Strauss looked good but couldn't make a real impact. It's a trend that has gone on too long for his liking 58/2
View dismissal LJ Wright c McLaren b Parnell 24 23 19 3 1 126.31
5.3 one shot too many. Short and Wright tries for a maximum but can only top edge and is caught on the deep mid-wicket boundary. Bit of a shame, he gave England a decent start, but it won't be enough 41/1
View dismissal IJL Trott c Smith b Parnell 9 19 14 1 0 64.28
9.3 great catch! Trott tries to drive a full delivery through the off side with minimal foot movement and could only edge to Smith's left where his dive secured an excellent catch 58/3
View dismissal KP Pietersen b Duminy 45 65 56 3 1 80.35
24.6 oh dear. Pietersen wonders too far across his stumps and a dragged-down delivery comes off the bottom of his glove into leg stump. South Africa will be thrilled, Duminy has done a fine job building pressure and he was rewarded with the prize-wicket of Pietersen 142/4
View dismissal PD Collingwood c Amla b Parnell 86 120 82 7 3 104.87
37.3 and that's the end of England's resistance. Collingwood went for his fourth six of the night, but couldn't get hold of it, and shovelled a simple chance to Amla at mid-on 223/7
View dismissal EJG Morgan c sub (J Botha) b Duminy 0 8 4 0 0 0.00
26.5 Morgan stops on the shot and chips it towards long off, where Botha coming in swiftly completes a good catch. A tame end for Morgan but Duminy has done an excellent job 150/5
View dismissal MJ Prior c Smith b Morkel 16 40 22 1 0 72.72
36.1 high, high, but not very handsome. Full length, right up to the bat, and the skipper himself is on hand to pouch the chance at cover as Prior attempts to launch one into the stands 214/6
View dismissal TT Bresnan c Smith b Morkel 7 16 7 0 0 100.00
38.4 slower ball, Bresnan has a wipe, Smith backpedals at mid-off, and that's the end of that 227/8
View dismissal SCJ Broad b Parnell 10 13 10 1 0 100.00
39.6 that's a cracking delivery. If you can't rely on the fielders, do it with the ball instead. Full length, zipping off the seam, and detonating leg stump as Broad swishes through the line. 236/9
GP Swann not out 6 14 6 0 0 100.00
View dismissal JM Anderson lbw b Parnell 1 7 5 0 0 20.00
41.3 Parnell collects his fifth wicket to secure career-best figures of 5-48 as Anderson is given out lbw to a swinging full delivery. 242/10
