Australia tour of South Africa, 2nd ODI: South Africa v Australia at Port Elizabeth, Oct 23, 2011
South Africa won by 80 runs
23 October 2011 - day/night match (50-over match)

Bollinger to Amla, OUT, what a start for Australia. Amla has leading-edged it back to Bollinger. Shaun George wants to check with a replay if Bollinger has overstepped. Replays show he is fine. Amla looks to play the shot that pays his bills, a flick off the pads, but he is a microsecond too early. Remember he himself said he expected a slow wicket. The leading edge is taken, and Bollinger accepts a dolly back

HM Amla c & b Bollinger 0 (2m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

South Africa 0/1   GC Smith 0* (0b)   DE Bollinger 0.1-0-0-1

Smith to Smith, OUT, Smith reviews this, Steven that is. Graeme has once again tried that cute reverse-sweep, misses, Haddin and Steven go up immediately. Umpire says no. Smith reviews immediately. The replays suggest a tiny little noise noise as the ball passes the glove, but there is no visual confirmation in normal replays. The Hot Spot, though, confirms a touch on the glove, and off goes Graeme

GC Smith c †Haddin b Smith 57 (117m 69b 6x4 0x6) SR: 82.60

South Africa 142/2   JH Kallis 75* (85b 7x4 2x6)   SPD Smith 0.5-0-2-1

Doherty to Kallis, 1 run, OUT, more misjudgement from South Africa. After G Smith's too-cute-by-half reverse-sweep, Kallis has run himself out trying a cute second. Tries the paddle sweep, the top edge clears the keeper, but has hardly crossed the 30-yard circle. Clarke from slip runs back and fields and hits the stumps direct. So far short is Kallis he might have been out had Haddin to collect and remove the bails

JH Kallis run out 76 (118m 88b 7x4 2x6) SR: 86.36

South Africa 143/3   JP Duminy 0* (1b)   XJ Doherty 6.3-0-31-0

Doherty to du Plessis, OUT, he has walked past this one. This is superbly bowled. He jumps out of the crease again, Doherty gets a little bit of drift, a little of dip, which opens him up slightly. He is not close to the pitch now, and ends up feeling for the ball. It pitches one a length in front of leg, turns away, beats the bats and the stumps. Haddin does the rest

F du Plessis st †Haddin b Doherty 12 (12m 20b 2x4 0x6) SR: 60.00

South Africa 157/4   JP Duminy 2* (7b)   XJ Doherty 8.5-0-40-1

Cummins to Miller, OUT, and strikes right away. Miller is gone after playing a forceful, momentum-grabbing innings. He backs away, trying to hit it over the off side, the ball is short of a length, and angles away. A thick edge is taken, and settles with Haddin

DA Miller c †Haddin b Cummins 59 (68m 51b 6x4 1x6) SR: 115.68

South Africa 264/5   JP Duminy 35* (48b 2x4)   PJ Cummins 8.1-1-50-1

Bollinger to Duminy, OUT, he has hit the full toss straight down Smith's throat at midwicket. Smith doesn't realise it is a catch, and wants to throw at the non-striker's end. He has a surprised look on his face as neither the non-striker wants to run nor the bowler wants the throw. I think Smith was ready in case it is called no-ball for height

JP Duminy c Smith b Bollinger 56 (100m 58b 2x4 2x6) SR: 96.55

South Africa 300/6   MV Boucher 12* (10b 1x4)   DE Bollinger 9.3-0-61-2
