    3.3 Amla's walked, extraordinary scenes here, it was wide outside off, Amla opened the face to glide it to third man, it goes through to the keeper, who barely appeals, there's a half-hearted shout from first slip as well, Amla didn't wait for the verdict, he took his gloves off and set off for the pavilion, hard to tell from the replays whether he edged it 17/1
    21.6 Smith falls, big wicket for Australia, Hauritz hasn't been afraid to toss the ball up and he gets his reward, Smith was looking to play to the on side, gets a leading edge which results in a simple caught and bowled 110/4
    15.3 Gibbs falls, not exactly the best of deliveries, short if a length and outside off, Gibbs throws his bat at that, hits it very well but Michael Clarke at point takes a good diving catch, that's the breakthrough Australia needed 91/2
    16.5 de Villiers goes lbw, Asoka de Silva rules de Villiers out, there was a big inside edge on that one, it was a back of a length delivery, hit his pads in front of middle but there was bat involved before the ball hit pads, de Villiers can't believe the decision, he shakes his head as he walks off 94/3
    26.4 JP Duminy commits hara-kiri, not much footwork as he tried to pull a short-of-length ball from Hopes, gets an edge and the ball swirls to mid-on 125/6
    23.4 Boucher's falls and South Africa are in real trouble now, Boucher plays a shot which can be described as a checked-sweep, gets a top edge which lobs to the keeper for an easy catch 112/5
    28.2 ripping short delivery gets Botha! Johnson steams in and bangs in a brute of a short one that fairly kicks up off the track and though an airborne Botha rears his head out of harm's way he cannot drop the hands in time and the ball kisses his gloves before settling in the fielder's hands at gully ... there really wasn't much he could do about that ball .. absolutely vicious snorter 132/7
    31.5 nicely tossed up by Hauritz, Albie was charging down the track, tried to loft it over mid-on, misses the ball and Haddin has an easy stumping 142/8
    33.1 this match is over, Australia have walloped South Africa by 141 runs, another flighted delivery from Hauritz, very full, Morne tries to slam it over mid-on, doesn't quite get hold of it, it goes high and gives Laughlin at mid-on a catch , Hauritz finishes with four wickets 145/10
    32.1 starts off yet another of his overs with a slower ball, full ball and pretty wide, Steyn was onto his shot early, checks and can only spoon it to Michael Hussey at short cover, that's Laughlin's first wicket in ODIs 143/9
