    35.1 oh no, Amla chucks away a century as he miss-times a long-hop from Cremer. Pulled straight down the throaght of the man down at the deep mid-wicket fence. 185/3
    13.3 Smith goes for the big slog-sweep but hits it too flat right down the throaght of the fielder down at deep square leg. The introduction of spin then was effective in getting the first wicket. The South African skipper has to go and that would be very dissapointing for him. 67/1
    28.3 great catch down at long-off by Vermeulen. De Villiers attempts to go over the top but doesn't get enough bat on the ball. Good innings from De Villiers comes to an end. 157/2
    38.2 another catch hit straight down Vermeulen's throaght. This time Boucher goes down the track and over the top but straight to long-off. Vermeulen makes no mistake and Price picks up another one. 202/4
    49 Petersen attempts to go over the top, Cremer at the long-on fence takes a good catch running backwards. Petersen's good innings comes to an end. 288/5

    5.1 finally Tsotsobe is rewarded with a wicket. Slower ball luring Vermeulen to go over the top and is miss-timed straight to Amla at mid-off. 11/1
    11.3 and McLaren gets his first ODI wicket on just his 3rd delivery. A bit high and moving towards the leg-side, but umpire Rudi Koertzen lifts the finger. 35/2
    16.2 another good take by Boucher. Steyn luring him into the drive, gets the edge and Boucher makes no mistake. 44/4
    13.5 edged and well taken by Boucher, diving to his right. 40/3
