    11.1 holed out at long-on and Miller pulls off a stunner! If it's in the V, it's in the tree they say.... so long as Miller isn't fielding there. This was hit powerfully as Smith looked to take advantage of a loopy legspinner outside off, but Miller raced to his left and threw himself back at the perfect time to grab this incredible catch over this head 52/4
    1.3 knocked him over! Gayle gave himself too much room and Abbott, to his credit, didn't experiement. Kept it straight and hurts middle stump as the batsman swings and misses. Faf leaps into his bowler's arms and Abbott is beside himself as well 12/1
    3.3 both centurions from the last game are out for single-figures. Testing line just outside off and the score they need to chase makes him push at the ball. Healthy outside edge safely pouched by de Kock 16/2
    10.6 taken by a mid-on running and diving to his left! And guess who it is! Two balls ago Morkel bowled a no-ball that hadn't been picked up the umpire Gould, this time Morkel's foot is where it should be and Carter has to walk off after mistiming another pull shot. The extra bounce, the lack of room to free the arms - it's West Indies' early tactics, only bolstered by scoreboard pressure of a 409 target 52/3
    25.6 through him and he has a five-for! Celebrates it with kisses blown to the heavens and South Africa are playing the perfect game. This is a flighted googly that slips through Ramdin's defences as he plays all around it 108/8
    11.6 done for! Appeared to be the flipper on middle and Simmons hasn't picked it. Plunges his front leg forward to block outside the line and is struck on the front pad. But wasn't there an inside edge? Why didn't Simmons go for DRS? Huuuuge inside edge! And he didn't review it! 53/5
    17.1 tossed up googly on middle and leg and lures Sammy into a big slog. He's misread the wrong 'un and Tahir has beaten him between bat and pad and then sets up Quinton de Kock for a massively impressive stumping. May have been blinded by Sammy but he moved to his right, picked up the ball and removed the bails in the brief seconds before Sammy could push his overbalanced backfoot to safety 63/6
    17.4 taken! That's a second double-wicket over and South Africa are hot on the heels of anothe record - the largest margin of victory in ODIS. Three wickets to get and a cushion of 50 runs left. It was shortish and Russell backed away and cut as hard as he could. Only gets a thick outside edge to short third man, who runs forward and dives to his right and claim a good, low catch. Take a bow, Abbott 63/7
    32.4 moves away and tries to pull a shortish delivery that was following him and skews a catch to mid-on. Had tried to make room to open up the off side but Steyn had spotted it and bested him. 150/9

    33.1 pops up to slip and that's done! Joint biggest defeat in World Cup! It was short and on Benn's body, he can't get away from it and pulls his hands up to try and block. Only ends up sliding it to the slip fielder 151/10
