- Play was delayed by 10 minutes due to early rain, and 10 minutes were removed from the lunch interval - no reduction in the number of overs.
- The England innings was shortened when the overs weren't completed by 6:10pm, the rescheduled close of innings time.
- Wessels was a runner for the whole of Kirsten's innings
- Rain interrupted play for 12 minutes with South Africa 231/6 off 42.5 overs and the over limit was reduced to 43 overs with the target reduced by 1 to 252. (The SCG scoreboard and the TV coverage incorrectly displayed South Africa needing 22 off 7 balls, then 22 off 1 ball - the actual requirement to win was 21 off 1 ball)
- Chris Lewis bowled the last ball with slow medium pace and Brian McMillan took a single with a push to midwicket
- A Duckworth/Lewis calculation under the rules in 2006 would have first set South Africa a target of 273 in 45 overs, and then reduced this to 257 from 43 overs.
England have to be "open-minded" about their selection policy ahead of the World Cup, according to captain Eoin Morgan
