    4.1 That's the danger! Pollock, after taking away numerous deliveries, brings this one back in. It landed on the same spot that the others had pitched - on a length and outside off, but this one slided in. Zuiderent was so used to leaving everything that he repeated the robotic leave. To his horror the ball crashed into the off stump 6/2
    2.2 Tragedy. Zuiderent pushes a length-delivery towards short midwicket and sets off. Reekers is not interested. he does take few steps but freezes after that. Zuiderent kept running, Reekers back pedalled. Zuiderent charges on and reaches the crease first. Reekers doesn't make a great effort to reach first. 5/1
    14.2 Kervezee falls to a pull shot. Banged in short and outside off, he fetches it from there, the ball hits the top half of the bat and balloons to Pollock at mid-on. 33/3
    35.1 Doeschate's promising knock ends. Via a run out. Pity. Pushed to cover, both batsmen not sure whether they want a run. Take a few steps. Meanwhile de Villiers swoops on to the ball and Doeschate is sent back. He tries to scramble back home, at the non-striker's end, but fails to beat the direct hit 114/6
    19.2 on the pads and given! pitched just a tad outside the line of off stump and coming in, van bunge tries to turn it to the on side but is caught at the crease, the ball strikes the top of the front pad, Hall goes up in appeal and Mark Benson raises the finger. Replays show the ball missing the stumps. Perhaps not the best decision 47/4
    26.5 Gone this time! Smith changes tack and fires this one across. Surprises Doeschate who is beaten for pace as he tries to dab it to on side and is caught dead plumb 72/5

    37.3 Gone! de Leede is back in the hutch. Full and straight, de Leede tries to heave it over mid-on, bat meets air and the ball meets the middle stump. 124/7
    38.6 Another run out. cut away to deep cover and they turn for the second run. Mistake. The throw from Kallis comes in flat and fast, Smith takes it front of the sticks and whips the bails off and Borren is found short 131/8
    39.6 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 132/9
