View dismissal WTS Porterfield c †Boucher b Philander 17 47 35 2 0 48.57
10.3 edged and gone, and Philander gets his first ODI wicket on his 22nd birthday! The ball sat up from a short length and surprised Porterfield, who hopped up and fended, only to edge into Boucher's leaping gloves behind the stumps 47/3
View dismissal KED Carroll hit wicket b Steyn 21 38 24 1 0 87.50
9.1 would you believe it, he's hit his wickets! Carroll went right back in his crease to defend a short of a length ball from Steyn, as his right leg came down, his foot slipped and caused him to fall over and hit his stumps with his back leg, I don't think his spikes were doing their job, an unfortunate way to go 45/1
View dismissal MJ Fourie c Kemp b Steyn 1 1 3 0 0 33.33
9.5 that's the second wicket of the over, Fourie fends at one away from his body and edges it to Kemp at first slip who takes a regulation catch 47/2
View dismissal DI Joyce c †Boucher b Kallis 11 27 19 2 0 57.89
15.5 pitches on a good length outside off stump and holds it's line, Joyce tries to drive off the back foot and ends up playing away from his body, the ball hits the outside edge and Boucher takes a low catch, Ireland have lost their fifth wicket 66/5
View dismissal NJ O'Brien b Philander 4 7 5 0 0 80.00
12.1 Philander is having an excellent debut, Niall O' Brien plays all around one that swung back into him from outside off and hits off and middle stump, Ireland are really struggling now 56/4
AR Cusack not out 36 81 56 1 1 64.28
View dismissal KJ O'Brien c van Wyk b Tshabalala 6 11 7 1 0 85.71
18.1 Tshabalala picks up his first ODI wicket on debut, Kevin O'Brien gave him the charge but didn't get to the pitch of the ball, he tried to heave it over midwicket but ended up scooping it straight to Morne van Wyk who took the catch a fair distance from the boundary 77/6
View dismissal AR White c Ntini b Duminy 3 4 4 0 0 75.00
19.3 caught, oops ...and caught! White tries to reverse sweep Duminy but hits it straight to Ntini at short third man who fumbles it once but takes it safely on the second attempt, Duminy strikes with his third ball 83/7
View dismissal DT Johnston* c Duminy b Ntini 9 11 13 0 0 69.23
22.4 Duminy takes an outstanding catch! Johnston had to step on it and he tried slogging Ntini down the ground, he ended up slicing it high but straight past the bowler, Duminy covered a lot of ground, running to his left from long on and took an excellent sliding catch 96/8
View dismissal WK McCallan c †Boucher b Philander 10 25 12 0 0 83.33
28.6 Philander has his third! He banged it in short, McCallan went down on one knee and tried to scoop it over Boucher, he ended up getting a faint nick and Boucher moved quickly to his left to take the catch 129/9
