Commentary

This was considered by some as a grudge match. Definitely by Mark Boucher. Boucher was captain and was heavily criticised when SA quit the series mid-way and returned home following a bomb in the Colombo. "We were called 'chicken' and various other things, which was unfair and uncalled for," Boucher had said on the eve of this game. "We have nothing against the any of the players, but the press in Sri Lanka were out of order. I am definitely one of those treating this game as a grudge match."

This group is now open to all sorts of permutations and combinations. For Sri Lanka to go through, Pakistan have to win all their matches and then the net run rate will come into the picture.

Kemp to Fernando, OUT, South Africa have scripted a wonderful come-from-behind victory. The final nail in the coffin was delivered by Kemp. Low dipping yorker catches Fernando in front, leaving Vaas stranded and Sri Lanka perilously close to being ousted from the tournament

Ntini to Vaas, 2 runs, short and pulled over midwicket. Kemp makes a good diving stop near the ropes. Its been tremendous fielding display from both teams today. Both Jonty Rhodes and Trevor Penny would be pretty happy with their boys.
