    0.5 gone! Bollinger wins the battle again, Smith plays across the line and is given lbw. Smith considers a review but after asking Amla he walks off. It looked out. 4/1
    9.5 another one goes! And with a fine catch. South Africa falling apart. Was full and fairly wide, Amla chased it and got an edge through to Brad Haddin who took a super catch, one-handed, diving in front of first slip 55/4
    7.3 big wicket! Cummins keeps taking wickets. It was full outside off, Kallis went for a drive and got a thick inside into the stumps. Not a bad scalp to start your ODI career with 40/2
    7.5 gone! He's got Duminy again. He was trying to pull his bat away from the delivery outside off, but it was too late and it ran off the face to second slip who held a sharp catch. 44/3
    17.1 Faf goes on the attack, but he slices across the attempted loft and the ball loops out to Mike Hussey at deep cover. South Africa sink further. They need to reach 172 by the 20th over to be par on D/L now 93/7
    12.6 was this a catch? Miller stepped away and drove hard square of the wicket, the ball landing in point's waiting hands. But was it a bump ball? Doherty appeals but the umpire's not convinced. Eventually they go upstairs, and that's out! 74/5
    14.1 there's an appeal from Doherty as Boucher misses a flick to leg and is hit on the pads, but it's quickly quashed. How close was this? Doherty doesn't look that confident, but Clarke wants to review it. Yep, it pitched in line and would've taken out middle and leg, Boucher is out! 80/6
    20.1 he's trodden on his stumps! Cummins has his third. Early in his career to get a hit wicket. Botha went back and across then pulled a short ball away, but the in process of playing the stroke his back foot when into the base of stumps 119/9
    19.4 Steyn perishes in search of runs! Johnson pulled his length back and Steyn slashed hard into an uppercut, but could only spoon the ball down to Bollinger at third man. Good catch by the lanky fast bowler, and South Africa lose another one 118/8
    not out
    21.6 that's the game! Tsotsobe tries to launch this down the ground but only manages to send it straight up in the air and Marsh steadied himself under the catch back-tracking from mid-off 129/10
