View dismissal HM Amla* run out (Cummins/†Haddin) 52 112 72 7 0 72.22
25.6 Doherty to Kallis, dabbed to short third man ... and this could well be run out! Amla had to hurry as the throw was fired in. They're going to have another look at this. The return from the fielder was bang on target, and Amla is short of his ground! Cummins was the fielder. He's got quite an arm 117/2
View dismissal GC Smith c Hussey b Doherty 19 60 36 1 0 52.77
13.2 great catch! This time Hussey makes it, and it's a blinder. Smith plays the sweep and doesn't keep the ball down. It skims towards deep midwicket where Hussey races in then dives forward 58/1
View dismissal JH Kallis c Marsh b Doherty 54 80 74 3 2 72.97
33.4 gone! Reward for Doherty and Australia. Kallis tries to break the shackles with a sweep and, like Smith, gets a top edge which, unlike Smith, goes high in the air before being well taken by Marsh inches from the deep square boundary 141/3
View dismissal JP Duminy c Ponting b Johnson 35 92 58 1 0 60.34
47.1 he strikes straight away, and a frustrated Duminy is caught close to the boundary at midwicket! He got a good connection on the slog to leg, but couldn't hit it far enough to get it over Ponting 205/5
View dismissal F du Plessis c Doherty b Cummins 21 41 28 2 0 75.00
42.3 du Plessis falls to an extremely slow slower ball! He was looking to play a shot into the off side but by the time the ball got to him his bat had swung round and instead he lifted it out straight to the man at deep square 185/4
DA Miller not out 11 37 22 0 0 50.00
View dismissal MV Boucher c Warner b Johnson 8 8 8 1 0 100.00
49.2 Boucher holes out to long off! He sliced right across the ball, and presented an easy catch to Warner 218/6

  Australia innings (target: 223 runs from 50 overs) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal SR Watson b Kallis 49 60 46 6 1 106.52
13.3 chopped on! Kallis strikes, and Watson falls for 49. He was just trying to run this down to third man, but it seemed in to him, taking a thick inside edge and cannoning into the stumps. This could revive South Africa 78/2
View dismissal DA Warner c †Boucher b Morkel 10 29 18 1 0 55.55
6.6 gone! Morkel hits back. Angled across outside off, Warner was in two minds and in the end the ball runs off the toe end as he tries to leave 38/1
View dismissal RT Ponting c & b Botha 11 36 20 1 0 55.00
14.3 there's another one! A soft dismissal for Ponting. Botha floated one down on off stump and Ponting just popped it straight back into his waiting hands. South Africa are right back into this now 82/3
View dismissal MJ Clarke* b Duminy 26 54 39 5 0 66.66
25.1 first ball! What a start for Duminy. Round the wicket, full on the stumps, Clarke goes for a drive and gets an inside edge into his pads which then cannons into the stumps 130/4
View dismissal SE Marsh b Duminy 30 79 55 2 0 54.54
34.1 bowled him! Duminy strikes straight after the interval. Duminy arrowed one down at middle, Marsh gave himself some room but the ball rushed straight on and clattered into middle stump. Just 67 needed by Australia, this is going to get tight 156/5
MEK Hussey not out 45 93 64 1 1 70.31
View dismissal BJ Haddin c Kallis b Steyn 23 34 25 2 2 92.00
41.5 time for another twist?! Haddin couldn't restrain himself. He stood on leg stump and tried to clear the off side but picked out deep cover 194/6
View dismissal MG Johnson c †Boucher b Kallis 6 14 8 1 0 75.00
44.5 gone! This game refuses to die. Johnson chases a length ball outside off and gets an edge which carries low to Boucher. It was a good catch. 213/7
