India tour of South Africa, 2006/07 / Wicket commentary

India in South Africa ODI Series - 4th ODI

South Africa v India

South Africa won by 80 runs

0.3

Khan to Smith, OUT, GODDIM! Swinging in, it straightens on Smith who comes down the track and that's absolutely plumb. Dreadful, careless shot from Smith. That's it from me. It's over to the venerable Sriram Veera whose office has now regained power. For now.

GC Smith lbw b Khan 0 (2m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

South Africa 0/1   LE Bosman 0* (0b)   Z Khan 0.3-0-0-1

3.1

Sreesanth to Bosman, OUT, Cleaned him up! Yorker! Sreesanth pings the blockhole and Bosman, caught in a tangle with his feet movement - his left foot was pressed a bit too across- and his desperate wave of the bat didn't make contact with the cherry.

LE Bosman b Sreesanth 0 (15m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

South Africa 6/2   JH Kallis 6* (14b 1x4)   S Sreesanth 1.1-0-1-1

17.1

Kumble to Kallis, OUT, and he strikes first ball! slightly short and this one went straight on after hitting the deck - Kallis looking to chop it away off the back-foot ends up with a faint edge and Dhoni held on well to fairly hard chance.

JH Kallis c †Dhoni b Kumble 49 (78m 62b 9x4 0x6) SR: 79.03

South Africa 75/3   HH Gibbs 22* (38b 3x4)   A Kumble 0.1-0-0-1

19.2

Kumble to de Villiers, OUT, Revenge! Traps him in front with a slider. Landed on the off and middle, on a length, slided in and beat the intended sweep shot and rapped him plumb in front.

AB de Villiers lbw b Kumble 13 (11m 8b 0x4 1x6) SR: 162.50

South Africa 93/4   HH Gibbs 27* (43b 4x4)   A Kumble 1.2-0-11-2

34.6

Sehwag to Boucher, OUT, got'im! fuller in length, pitched close to the off stump line and turning in - Boucher swipes across the line and is trapped plumb in front, easy decision for the umpire. South Africa five down

MV Boucher lbw b Sehwag 29 (58m 49b 2x4 0x6) SR: 59.18

South Africa 154/5   HH Gibbs 57* (88b 5x4)   V Sehwag 3-0-11-1

35.2

Tendulkar to Kemp, OUT, golden duck! that's cricket for you - 100 in the previous match, 0 in the next. Fraction short and close to the off stump line, Kemp attacks the ball in an attempt to pierce the off side ring, fails to keep it down and the ball goes straight to Sehwag at point

JM Kemp c Sehwag b Tendulkar 0 (2m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

South Africa 155/6   HH Gibbs 58* (89b 5x4)   SR Tendulkar 2.2-0-8-1

46.3

Khan to Pollock, OUT, pulled away at one bounce to the fielder at midwicket - Pollock takes off for a suicidal run but Gibbs stands his ground. Kumble's shy at the stumps misses the stumps, but Dhoni running in from behind grabs the ball with both hands and punches the stumps - Pollock is inches away from the crease but that's enough for the tv-umpire to press the button-of-death.

SM Pollock run out 37 (34m 43b 2x4 2x6) SR: 86.04

South Africa 216/7   HH Gibbs 81* (113b 7x4)   Z Khan 6.3-1-26-1

49.3

Sreesanth to Hall, 1 run, OUT, driven away to wide long-on. Hall is bit late off the blocks - Karthik's throw comes in at the striker's end - Hall is home, wait he has forgotten to ground his bat. They go upstairs and the red light flashes.

AJ Hall run out 13 (13m 9b 0x4 1x6) SR: 144.44

South Africa 240/8   HH Gibbs 92* (122b 8x4)   S Sreesanth 6.3-1-28-1
