Commentary

Ireland have been blown away, and South Africa complete a 131-run win in Kolkata. The Irish fought really hard in the field, keeping South Africa pegged back with wickets, but they couldn't keep it up with the bat. They managed to keep up with the asking rate, but at the expense of wickets, which fell at regular intervals. If you missed any of today's play, we have the perfect remedy: Nitin Sundar's match bulletin. There's also a full gallery for you to peruse. In between times, chat with friends or berate your nemeses at our Facebook page.

William Porterfield "We started off pretty well, got wickets up front and pegged them back. We were happy enough at half time chasing 270 but just lost wickets. We've been pretty good with our ground fielding throughout the tournament but we missed a couple of catches. We've shown competitive spirit, in a lot of the games we kept ourselves in the game. We've got a lot of positives from this tournament."

Graeme Smith: "I think you can always nitpick, but there were some good signs today. We put ourselves under pressure with some stupid run outs but the guys responded really well after that, especially JP [Duminy] who batted really well under pressure. He really held things together, and then Colin Ingram, who hasn't played for a while, came in and batted well. We've done the first part of his now."

No surprises, JP Duminy is the Man of the Match: "The circumstances were a bit tense [when I came in], the key was to try and stay as calm as possible. I've done it a fair number of times now, and I've grown into this role nicely, and I hope it continues. I was trying to hit the ball out of the ground at the end, you never know when a few runs might make all the difference in the game."

Aoife Nolan: "I am still an Irish Blonde and I still support the redheads!!!"

shuvo_Kalmar: "@Aoife Nolan, i am in the same folk with you. See you redheads next WC hopefully with some more excitment." I'll second that, and also say goodbye to everyone who joined us for this game. We hope you enjoyed our coverage, and join us next time!

Kannan: "Good catch from van Wyk - now he can celebrate it with a haircut.. must be brutal with the heat over there - geez."

Morkel to Dockrell, OUT, superb catch from van Wyk! Morkel slammed one down much shorter, it leapt up at young Dockrell and took the edge of the shoulder of the bat, the keeper tumbled to his right to complete the dismissal and that's the end of Ireland

Morkel to Dockrell, FOUR runs, cracked over cover! Is there anything George Dockrell can't do?

Smith goes for the kill and brings back Morkel

Kallis to Rankin, no run, no danger of Rankin getting in line with the ball ... he stands on leg stump and pushes the hands out, the ball zips past the outside edge

Kallis to Rankin, no run, Kallis stays round the wicket to the left-handed Rankin, who pops the ball up towards midwicket ... but it drops safe

Kallis to Mooney, OUT, just one more to go now, Kallis comes round the wicket, Mooney drives and the edge goes straight through to van Wyk. He beat him a couple of times in the last over, now he gets one to touch the bat as Mooney drives rooted to the crease

Kallis to Dockrell, 1 run, a thick inside edge rolls into the leg side, and they steal a quick single
