South Africa 48/0   HM Amla 24* (34b 4x4)   A Mithun 0.5-0-4-0

South Africa 52/0   HM Amla 28* (35b 5x4)   A Mithun 1-0-8-0

Sreesanth to Bosman, FOUR, slower legcutter gone wrong, ends up being a fulltoss on the pads, and he is literally swept away. With fine leg up, that line is a crime really. Was he looking to bowl him around his legs?

Mithun to Amla, FOUR, superb placement, driven on the up, and through a tight off side ring, beating short cover and point, and then regulation cover and point

South Africa 147/1   HM Amla 63* (70b 7x4)   YK Pathan 5.5-0-34-1

Sharma to Kallis, FOUR, Kallis goes for the big shot into the leg side, M Vijay misjudges, runs in too far, and he has been lobbed for four! Pretty embarrassing for the boundary fielder when the ball goes over him and still lands inside the boundary

Mithun to de Villiers, FOUR, misfielded by Yusuf at extra cover, it goes right through him as he dives, coming down ever so slowly on the ball. London Bridge and all that

South Africa 324/2   AB de Villiers 85* (51b 10x4 2x6)   A Mithun 7.2-0-52-0

Mithun to Kallis, FOUR, low full toss outside off, and Kallis drills it straight of extra cover and wide of long-off, superb placement

Sharma to de Villiers, FOUR, and he gets to the seventh-fastest hundred in ODIs! Dances down the track, takes it on the full, and hits it to the midwicket boundary, what a crazy little innings

South Africa 364/2   AB de Villiers 101* (58b 11x4 3x6)   RG Sharma 2.4-0-27-0
