Rain delayed the start and then SA batsmen showered the ground with sixes and fours. A sedate start - they were on 4 for 1 at the end of 5 overs - before they broke free. And how. Kallis hit an unbeaten ton, Smith had a fifty, Gibbs blasted 6 sixes in an over - a World record and Boucher hit a frenetic fifty - quickest in World Cup history. It was a brutal slaughter. The debate on whether such one-sided violent bloodbaths do any good to the minnows will rage on.

Man of the Match: Herschelle Gibbs.

This is Sriram Veera, signing off. Adios!
