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!

Kemp to van Troost, OUT, Captain takes out captain! a slower one from Kemp and van Troost again charges out, attempts a lofted shot but is deceived by the change in pace. Smith moves to his right from mid-on to take the catch. South Africa register thier biggest victory in one-day internationals
