Commentary

Well, matches don't come much more one-sided. That was an emphatic victory by South Africa, making their statement in style. Hall teed up proceedings for them, with a fantastic five-wicket haul and then Smith took them home in dominant, brutal style.

Boos from the crowd for the England side and they head off with heads hanging, as they should. Their performance was no better than abject.

"We did this for the people back at home," says AB de Villiers. "To go through to the semis is an awesome feeling."

"Our performance today was pretty average," says Vaughan, mastering understatement. My word he sounds deflated. Hardly a surprise, mind.

No prizes for guessing the prize of man of the match. That man Hall.

Mahmood to Kallis, 3 runs, on off and that's driven in front of midwicket and they come back for three to bring up the 9000th ODI run - and this will be one of his most satisfying victories

12000 List A runs for Kallis by the way. Needs one more to be leading runscorer. And he's three away from 9000. These stats were brought to you by Cricinfo's team of winners. Well done
