END OF OVER:

The Australian players go into a huddle. Hands over each other's shoulder. They really wanted this one in the bag. Slowly.... they break away and walk towards the pavilion.

Three events halted the frenetic run-chase: Watson's throw to run out de Villiers. Kallis walking in at no 3 and batting the way he did. Perhaps, Gibbs could have been promoted. And then Smith cramping up. And Australia started hussling the batsmen. Pressure was intense, the required rate started rocketing and one by one, the batsmen went down.

This is Sriram Veera, signing off. Till tomorrow, adios.

Bracken to Ntini, OUT, Australia win by 83 runs. Yorker on the off stump line, Ntini tries to get his bat down but the ball beats the bat and the furniture is disturbed. HRG chimes in with a timely stat. Ponting becomes the most successful captain in ODI history. This is win no 108, besting Border's record.
