View dismissal BJ Haddin c Duminy b JA Morkel 62 81 64 7 1 96.87
19.1 he's got him! SA following up well on that maiden, full on the off stump, Haddin makes room to cart that over the infield on the off side, ends up slicing it really high and Duminy at deep cover, positioned perfectly, just had to take few steps to his right to complete an easy catch 127/1
View dismissal MJ Clarke c Duminy b van der Merwe 66 96 60 10 0 110.00
22.5 Clarke goes! Pushed in short on middle, Clarke got on the front foot and pulled it straight o Duminy, running to his right from deep square leg, not a fully committed pull that, more a short-arm one and though he timed it well, he couldn't get the distance 138/2
View dismissal RT Ponting* c van der Merwe b Duminy 40 68 45 2 1 88.88
36.4 tossed up on the stumps this time and is tempted to go at it again, strikes it clean and high but not well enough as he fails to beat van der Merwe at long-on who takes a well-judged catch. Duminy does the trick. 223/4
View dismissal CJ Ferguson c de Villiers b van der Merwe 41 29 33 5 0 124.24
31.1 Fergie goes! An abrupt end to a good stand, quicker one the off stump, lands full, he drives through the line but ends up chipping it straight to de Villiers at short cover who takes a sharp chance 192/3
MEK Hussey not out 49 83 55 5 0 89.09
View dismissal DJ Hussey st †Boucher b Duminy 3 7 4 0 0 75.00
38.3 a leg-side stumping, tossed up on middle and leg, drawing David Hussey out of the crease as he tries to work that away behind square, the ball spins down, the batsman misses and Boucher clips the bails to find him well short 231/5
View dismissal JR Hopes run out (de Villiers) 3 3 3 0 0 100.00
38.6 Duminy to MEK Hussey, AB you beauty! Pushed wide of him at short cover but Hopes is not quick enough to respond, AB picks it up cleanly and throws down the stumps and the striker's end, while still diving forward, to find Hopes short of his ground 238/6
View dismissal MG Johnson c & b Duminy 2 7 6 0 0 33.33
40.5 short on middle, pushes it back uppishly towards Duminy who dives forward and to his left to pluck it inches off the ground, or so it seemed. Duminy wasn't sure himself and asked the umpire to call for a replay, which then confirmed he had just about managed to get his hands around it. 246/7

  South Africa innings (target: 304 runs from 50 overs) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal HH Gibbs lbw b Hauritz 82 107 101 10 1 81.18
27.4 bowled much flatter, landed on a good length outside off and spun back in to strike Gibbs in line with middle and leg as he got down one one knee to sweep that powerfully in the square-leg region 150/2
View dismissal GC Smith* c †Haddin b Bracken 20 32 15 3 0 133.33
7.1 edged and gone! Bowled on a good length outside off, Smith took a couple of steps forward and simultaneously made room to slice that over the infield on the off side, got a thick edge and Haddin did the rest 46/1
View dismissal JH Kallis c †Haddin b Bracken 64 103 69 6 1 92.75
34.3 could this be the turning point? Bowled on a length outside off, sucking Kallis into the drive, angling away from him, gets a thick edge and Haddin stretches well to his right snap a sharp chance 188/3
View dismissal AB de Villiers b Laughlin 38 69 42 2 0 90.47
42.1 Timber! Full and straight, de Villiers makes room to drive that through the covers, misses and the stumps are pegged back. 229/7
View dismissal JP Duminy c †Haddin b Johnson 3 8 8 0 0 37.50
35.5 falls into the trap, Johnson fires it in wide, it's a teasing driving length and Duminy is tempted, he goes at it hard leaning forward, gets a faint nick straight to Haddin 191/4
View dismissal MV Boucher c Hauritz b Hopes 9 16 10 1 0 90.00
39.1 big wicket! Australia are in front now, short on the off stump, pulled away well but straight to Hauritz at deep midwicket positioned there exactly for that shot. The bowling change yields a wicket immediately, and it's up to AB and Albie now to pull things back for the hosts 213/5
View dismissal JA Morkel c Laughlin b Hauritz 5 11 6 0 0 83.33
41.2 Laughlin, you genius!! Tossed up outside off, and Albie goes for the slog-sweep, Laughlin's right at the edge of the ropes at deep midwicket and for a good while it appears the ball will clear him easily, but he waits, and times his jump to perfection to snap that over his head inches in front of the ropes, and celebrates kicking it Aussie-rules style back into the field. A decisive moment, that 226/6
View dismissal RE van der Merwe c Bracken b Johnson 3 12 4 0 0 75.00
43.1 What now, my friend? Short outside off, tried to upper-cut that over the third-man boundary, got it a lot squarer and certainly not the distance he desired, Bracken was waiting for it and took it gleefully at deep point, took some time to come down but he judged it well 238/8
View dismissal M Morkel c DJ Hussey b Johnson 15 20 12 2 0 125.00
45.5 it's all over! Length ball on the off stump, tries to clear the long-on boundary but mistimes it completely, David Hussey runs back a few steps from mid-on to complete a simple catch 256/10
View dismissal DW Steyn run out (MEK Hussey/†Haddin) 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
43.2 from Johnson, Almost over now, pushes it into the off side and sets off for a single when there is none, gets no response from the non-striker, Steyn has run to the other end and is stranded, Hussey fields at short cover and throws it back to Haddin who completes the formalities 238/9
