View dismissal BJ Haddin run out (JA Morkel/†Boucher) 53 95 60 6 1 88.33
21.5 Botha to MEK Hussey, What is going on here? Another run out, full outside off, Hussey stretches and steers it towards third man, Haddin sets off for the second, Hussey's not interested, Albie throws it from the deep to Boucher, Haddin is yards out of his crease when Boucher breaks the stumps 115/4
View dismissal MJ Clarke c Duminy b Ntini 1 5 5 0 0 20.00
1.3 Clarke's gone, Ntini bowling from wide of the crease slants the ball in towards the batsman, there gets it to straighten, and has Clarke lunging at the ball, a thick outside edge flies at a very catchable height, straight to JP Duminy at second slip 2/1
View dismissal RT Ponting* c JA Morkel b M Morkel 37 58 45 5 0 82.22
14.4 shorter from Morne this time, Ponting tries to repeat the shot, miscued again, and this time he doesn't beat the fielder at mid-on, Albie Morkel runs back a few yards to complete the catch, and Ponting's got to go 79/2
View dismissal DJ Hussey run out (de Villiers/JA Morkel) 18 23 20 2 0 90.00
20.3 JA Morkel to Haddin, Horrendous, horrendous mix-up, Hussey's run out, Albie sends down a good yorker, Haddin jabs that towards backward point and took one step before deciding against the run, Hussey was charging down and kept running, both batsmen were nearly at the same end when de Villiers lobbed the ball to Albie, who breaks the stumps at the non-striker's end 107/3
MEK Hussey not out 83 130 79 6 2 105.06
View dismissal CJ Ferguson c Botha b Steyn 25 42 44 2 0 56.81
34.1 Steyn strikes, short and pretty wide, Ferguson slashes at it, gets a top edge which flies to Johan Botha at third man, Botha back pedals a few steps to complete that catch, making sure that he doesn't cross the boundary 168/5
View dismissal JR Hopes c Steyn b M Morkel 38 51 35 5 0 108.57
45.3 Hopes is gone, he saw that the fine leg was up, so he walked across the stumps to pick up a middle stump ball and tried to chip it over fine leg, it looked pretty flamboyant but he didn't get enough on it, and Dale Steyn takes a simple catch to end Hopes' useful knock 235/6
View dismissal MG Johnson c †Boucher b Steyn 1 6 2 0 0 50.00
46.2 full ball from Steyn, not much footwork from Johnson as he tried to smear it through the offside, gets a faint edge through to the keeper, big appeal from Boucher, Johnson doesn't wait for the umpire's decision and decides to walk 243/7

View dismissal HM Amla c †Haddin b Bracken 7 15 14 1 0 50.00
3.3 Amla's walked, extraordinary scenes here, it was wide outside off, Amla opened the face to glide it to third man, it goes through to the keeper, who barely appeals, there's a half-hearted shout from first slip as well, Amla didn't wait for the verdict, he took his gloves off and set off for the pavilion, hard to tell from the replays whether he edged it 17/1
View dismissal GC Smith* c & b Hauritz 52 95 56 6 0 92.85
21.6 Smith falls, big wicket for Australia, Hauritz hasn't been afraid to toss the ball up and he gets his reward, Smith was looking to play to the on side, gets a leading edge which results in a simple caught and bowled 110/4
View dismissal HH Gibbs c Clarke b Hopes 33 51 37 5 0 89.18
15.3 Gibbs falls, not exactly the best of deliveries, short if a length and outside off, Gibbs throws his bat at that, hits it very well but Michael Clarke at point takes a good diving catch, that's the breakthrough Australia needed 91/2
View dismissal AB de Villiers lbw b Johnson 2 7 6 0 0 33.33
16.5 de Villiers goes lbw, Asoka de Silva rules de Villiers out, there was a big inside edge on that one, it was a back of a length delivery, hit his pads in front of middle but there was bat involved before the ball hit pads, de Villiers can't believe the decision, he shakes his head as he walks off 94/3
View dismissal JP Duminy c Johnson b Hopes 15 36 33 0 0 45.45
26.4 JP Duminy commits hara-kiri, not much footwork as he tried to pull a short-of-length ball from Hopes, gets an edge and the ball swirls to mid-on 125/6
View dismissal MV Boucher c †Haddin b Hauritz 0 6 6 0 0 0.00
23.4 Boucher's falls and South Africa are in real trouble now, Boucher plays a shot which can be described as a checked-sweep, gets a top edge which lobs to the keeper for an easy catch 112/5
View dismissal J Botha c MEK Hussey b Johnson 8 21 11 1 0 72.72
28.2 ripping short delivery gets Botha! Johnson steams in and bangs in a brute of a short one that fairly kicks up off the track and though an airborne Botha rears his head out of harm's way he cannot drop the hands in time and the ball kisses his gloves before settling in the fielder's hands at gully ... there really wasn't much he could do about that ball .. absolutely vicious snorter 132/7
View dismissal JA Morkel st †Haddin b Hauritz 14 22 19 2 0 73.68
31.5 nicely tossed up by Hauritz, Albie was charging down the track, tried to loft it over mid-on, misses the ball and Haddin has an easy stumping 142/8
View dismissal M Morkel c Laughlin b Hauritz 2 24 10 0 0 20.00
33.1 this match is over, Australia have walloped South Africa by 141 runs, another flighted delivery from Hauritz, very full, Morne tries to slam it over mid-on, doesn't quite get hold of it, it goes high and gives Laughlin at mid-on a catch , Hauritz finishes with four wickets 145/10
View dismissal DW Steyn c MEK Hussey b Laughlin 1 4 2 0 0 50.00
32.1 starts off yet another of his overs with a slower ball, full ball and pretty wide, Steyn was onto his shot early, checks and can only spoon it to Michael Hussey at short cover, that's Laughlin's first wicket in ODIs 143/9
