    38.1 pulling, in the air, to the square leg area 170/3
    13.4 straight ball outside the off stump, Flower plays with all the footwork of a New Zealander, outside edge from a cover drive straight to the 1st and only slip 65/1
    30.4 aimed at the off stump, quick with a bit of bounce, poor cross bat shot, looping it for an easy catch for Kirsten at mid on 131/2
    41.3 played behind point, far too risky a double taken, Pollock with the excellent low throw to the keeper from deep point, no replay needed for it 186/5
    38.4 LBW first ball, Campbell's batting form is looking as equally shakey as his captaincy form, ball seaming into the pads, pitched on leg and straightened down the line, Shepherd gives it 175/4
    46.4 one step down the wicket, ferocious drive, hit very hard, but direct to Cullinan at cover, merely had to get his hands into place and not be blown backwards by the ball 214/6

    0.1 ball rises awkwardly, fended away by Kirsten poorly, outside edge spoons up for a great diving forward catch by Andy Whittall 0/1
    6.4 poor calling by the batsmen, the ball was played hard into the mid wicket, Huckle dives well, the batsmen weren't expecting that, throws to Flower and Gibbs is well short, didn't even bother to up his pace from a jog 24/2
    7.3 short of a length, ball angling straight in, Boucher with a poor flick across the line, into the rear pad, struck high, but near the stumps, Shepherd gives him out 25/3
    8.2 away swinger, then gets some out seam, Kallis lunging at the wide drive, outside edge, easy catch for the keeper, the South Africans are in terrubble 25/4
    29.2 strong shot, going for the big straight drive, only problem is the bowler is standing in the way, great reflex catch 106/7
    10.1 quick ball, yorker, aimed at the off stump, Cronje just too late playing the defence, ball cannons into the off stump, what a game 34/5
    11.4 too quick for the batsmen, seaming in, Rhodes leaning over it, trapped in front of middle and off, what a sensation 40/6
    41.2 smacked so hard and low, heading for a 6! no! the magic man Henry Olonga appears from out of view that take a terrific catch just inside of the boundary and in front of the sightscreen 149/8

    42.2 slow ball, slightly overpitched outside the off stump, smacked to the covers, Whittall the Andy snares it, Zimbabwe are nearly there 150/9
    47.2 that's it! Zimbabwe have beaten South Africa for the first ever time, and they qualify for the World Cup Super Six! 185/10
