Australia in South Africa ODI Series - 1st ODI

South Africa v Australia

Australia won by 93 runs (D/L method)

2.5

Steyn to Warner, OUT, that's a comeback! Steyn strikes. Back on a good length, draws Warner onto the front foot and there's a hint of swing into the left hander which takes the inside edge into leg stump

DA Warner b Steyn 20 (12m 17b 4x4 0x6) SR: 117.64

Australia 21/1   RT Ponting 0* (1b)   DW Steyn 1.5-0-16-1

21.1

Botha to Ponting, OUT, backing up, what a way to go! We've seen a few of these of late. Ponting used his feet, drilled it down the pitch where Botha got a hand on it and Clarke was backing up well out of his crease

MJ Clarke run out 44 (83m 48b 5x4 2x6) SR: 91.66

Australia 123/2   RT Ponting 52* (63b 9x4)   J Botha 3.1-0-21-0

26.2

Steyn to Ponting, OUT, picks out backward point. It was full and wide, Ponting connected quite well but Botha didn't have to move too far to his right

RT Ponting c Botha b Steyn 63 (118m 77b 9x4 0x6) SR: 81.81

Australia 159/3   MEK Hussey 24* (17b 2x4 1x6)   DW Steyn 4.2-0-36-2

27.6

Kallis to Haddin, OUT, lofted down to long on, got underneath this too much and it almost went straight up

BJ Haddin c Duminy b Kallis 9 (7m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 128.57

Australia 174/4   MEK Hussey 30* (20b 3x4 1x6)   JH Kallis 6-1-35-1
