  South Africa innings (50 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal HM Amla* c & b Bollinger 0 2 1 0 0 0.00
0.1 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 0/1
View dismissal GC Smith c †Haddin b Smith 57 117 69 6 0 82.60
25.5 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 142/2
View dismissal JH Kallis run out (Clarke) 76 118 88 7 2 86.36
26.3 from Doherty, 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 143/3
View dismissal JP Duminy c Smith b Bollinger 56 100 58 2 2 96.55
49.3 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 300/6
View dismissal F du Plessis st †Haddin b Doherty 12 12 20 2 0 60.00
30.5 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 157/4
View dismissal DA Miller c †Haddin b Cummins 59 68 51 6 1 115.68
46.1 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 264/5
MV Boucher not out 13 18 11 1 0 118.18

  Australia innings (target: 304 runs from 50 overs) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal DA Warner c †Boucher b Morkel 74 136 97 6 0 76.28
31.3 just too much pressure of the asking rate I suppose. And Morkel is not the bowler you can have your way with. This time the bounce gets a touch big, Warner's pull generates a hefty top edge, Boucher goes back towards short fine leg, and catches this swirling ball over his shoulder. Had to drag this pull from outside off 133/4
View dismissal RT Ponting c du Plessis b Tsotsobe 10 17 7 2 0 142.85
3.5 du Plessis is claiming a low catch at cover-point. Ponting is not moving. This is short, angling away, game for cut, but the tennis-ball bounce means it comes slower and higher. Ponting ends up hitting uppishly and in front of square. Replays show he has been taken. Clean as a whistel, low in front of him 34/1
View dismissal MJ Clarke* c Smith b Morkel 1 10 6 0 0 16.66
6.1 Morne Morkel bowls a beauty. They say hit the top of off, Morne bowls just by top of off. You can't do much more than defend these balls. Clarke plays for the angle, but misjudges the angle and gets the edge. Graeme Smith's bucket hands at first slip do the rest 37/2
View dismissal MEK Hussey run out (Botha/†Boucher) 37 83 62 4 0 59.67
25.5 from Duminy, Hussey is gone. He has run himself out. Botha has had Hussey missed twice off his bowling, but this time his rocket arm gets rid of the man. Deflected fine off the pads, Hussey wants one, rightly sent back, and even though he has taken about four steps down the wicket, he can't make it bat. Comprehensively run out 108/3
View dismissal SPD Smith c Duminy b Morkel 26 60 39 0 0 66.66
38.5 Smith will leave without a boundary to his name, thanks to a lovely catch from Duminy. And the lovely PE folk sing, "JP jou lekker ding" [The good thing]. Smith lofts this for what seems is six, Duminy sets himself up at the long-on fence, and takes an overhead catch while making sure he doesn't touch the rope 175/6
View dismissal SR Watson c Botha b Tsotsobe 15 20 10 1 1 150.00
35.1 and on cue Tsotsobe strikes, and that's the game. Slower ball, 118ks, on a length, middle and leg, Watson clears the front leg to go over cow corner, is early into the shot, and ends up dragging it straight to deep square. They all surround Lopsy 156/5
View dismissal BJ Haddin c du Plessis b Steyn 13 45 23 0 0 56.52
45.1 du Plessis has been superb in the field, and provides a finishing touch here. Haddin lofts a length ball straight down, du Plessis runs to his left from long-on, and takes it head high. It was a flat and quick hit 191/8
View dismissal MG Johnson b Botha 9 23 23 1 0 39.13
43.6 Johnson gives himself room, trying to go over cover, and is yorked. Full, fast, low. Timber 190/7
View dismissal XJ Doherty c Duminy b Steyn 10 26 20 0 0 50.00
49.6 Bowled out off the last ball. Full toss outside off, drives with an open face, Duminy catches it at point, and hands it over to the leg umpire, who at the moment is at point because the left-hand batsman is on strike. Doherty's average takes a blow, he had a great chance of ending not-out 223/10
View dismissal DE Bollinger c Duminy b Morkel 6 8 5 1 0 120.00
46.6 Bollinger tries to hit, is early into this slower ball, short of a length outside off. All he manages is a lob to cover. Four-for for Morne. Just reward for wonderful bowling 200/9
