    40.3 edged and taken and Amla goes for 97! A nothing stroke from Amla, standing his ground and trying to poke the short ball down to third man but the execution is poor and the faint nibble is snapped up by Haddin 196/4
    5.2 again Gibbs saunters down the track and makes an utter mess of the shot, spooning it up into the air and this time it is Hopes who runs in and settles under it at mid-off 28/1
    13.6 edged and gone! Success for Hopes in his first over, courtesy another walk down the track from McKenzie, playing a loose flash and getting a genuine outside edge to Haddin 58/2
    36.6 caught in the deep ! Hopes bangs it in short, AB again swats it off one leg but straight to Warner at deep square leg, and thats the end of a positive innings from him 176/3

    42.6 just like that! After the short stuff comes a full delivery on the stumps, Albie again makes room and swings, misses, and the ball takes out the base of leg stump 212/5
    46.5 good catch gets rid of van Jaarsveld, who chips down he track and collects the slower delivery on the full but mistimes it in the air over mid-on, spooning it to long-on, David Hussey covers a lot of ground and takes a neat catch on the run just in front of the boundary 256/6

    1.5 sharp catch at short midwicket! Tsotsobe gets a wicket in his first over in ODI cricket, and it comes down to a good low take by Amla, because Marsh had flicked the full ball strongly off his pads but found an alert Amla plucking inches off the turf 10/1
    12.2 another one, and the young debutant makes his presence felt immediately! Parnell overpitches, Hussey bunts it back dead straight, the ball flicks Parnell's fingers on the way down and deflects onto the stumps with Warner out of his crease 53/4
    7.3 top-edged and well taken by de Villiers! Tsotsobe gets another, and a good one to get too, banging in a short-pitched delivery which Ponting top-edges back over de Villiers head, but he keeps his eyes locked on the swirler and pouches it as he falls onto his knees 35/2
    8.4 played on ... or shall I say left on! Morne pitches it up and gets a hint of swing, Clarke starts to leave but doesn't twirl the bat out of the way in time and drags it back onto off stump 35/3
    38.4 what a comeback from Lonwabo Tsotsobe! Keeps his cool after being doled out for some punishment, holds back the pace and pitches short of a length, Hussey comes charging out and misses as the ball stays a touch low and knocks out his leg stump 174/6
    29.3 tossed up outside off stump and David cannot keep the drive down, instead hitting it straight to the captain who takes a simple catch at short cover 122/5
    47.5 maiden wicket for Parnell, pitches in on a length and Haddin chips the ball up in the air, Tsotsobe runs after it from short fine leg and holds on near the ropes at fine leg 244/9

    43.3 of all things, Hopes has missed a low full toss! Botha serves it up and gets it to dip and Hopes plays all over it as he goes for a flick to the on side, the ball hits middle and leg 218/7
    46.2 well now, a bit of confusion and Tsotsobe has four on debut! Clever bowling, fires in a yorker on leg stump, Johnson closes the face early and the ball pops back to Tsotsobe, who collects it and then feigns a throw back to Johnson, suddenly from backward point Gibbs appeals and gets Tsotsobe interested, it is referred, and yes indeed Johnson scooped a clean catch back to the bowler 237/8
    48.6 all over and we have a new number one in one-day international cricket! Bracken pulls a high full toss out to the substitute Steyn at wide long-on and South Africa win 4-1! 249/10
