ICC World Twenty20 - 15th match, Group E

South Africa v England

South Africa won by 19 runs

5.3

Flintoff to Kemp, no run, left alone as Flintoff probes just outside off stump. "God wheels," observes Andrew Miller

5.4

Flintoff to Kemp, no run, straight, quick and blocked ... Flintoff quickly through in his follow through to field

5.5

Flintoff to Kemp, no run, back of a length, seamed into the batsman and he can only fend it a few yards down the pitch, Flintoff fields once more

5.6

Flintoff to Kemp, no run, fuller, Kemp flicks to mid-on

South Africa 43/3   JM Kemp 0* (4b)

6.5

Broad to Kemp, 1 run, short, no timing in the pull and the ball apologetically wheezes about two-thirds of the way to the boundary, well picked up and only the one

South Africa 49/3   JM Kemp 1* (5b)

7.1

Mascarenhas to Kemp, no run, defended to cover

7.2

Mascarenhas to Kemp, 3 runs, neatly picked up off middle, swished over wide mid-on, Anderson fields on the rope

7.4

Mascarenhas to Kemp, no run, wide would have been had he left it - slammed to mid-off

7.5

Mascarenhas to Kemp, no run, he drives, he misses and Prior, standing up, takes

7.6

Mascarenhas to Kemp, 1 run, back and steered to the left of wide mid-on, an easy single but England won't mind that

South Africa 54/3   JM Kemp 5* (10b)

8.1

Schofield to Kemp, 1 run, Kemp winds up and drives a half volley to long-off

South Africa 55/3   JM Kemp 6* (11b)

9.1

Snape to Kemp, 1 run, pushed into the off side, between the close fielders but no second even though there should have been

9.3

Snape to Kemp, 1 run, long hop, mown to long-off ... "horribly" adds Jenny

9.6

Snape to Kemp, SIX, and to make Snape feel better Kemp launches that over midwicket for the first six

South Africa 68/3   JM Kemp 14* (14b 1x6)

10.3

Schofield to Kemp, 1 run, down the track, and driven on the move to mid-on

10.5

Schofield to Kemp, 1 run, not so lovely cricket, Schofield dragging short again and a big hoick of a mistimed pull whooshes up short of long-on

South Africa 76/3   JM Kemp 16* (16b 1x6)

11.3

Mascarenhas to Kemp, 1 run, slower ball, rolling the fingers over it, drops short and wide but nearly gets the wicket, with the fielder getting a fingertip to it at cover

South Africa 83/3   JM Kemp 17* (17b 1x6)

12.2

Anderson to Kemp, no run, good bouncer, nipping in off the seam and rising through unexpectedly

12.3

Anderson to Kemp, 1 run, low full toss, driven out straight to long-off and only one run is available

12.6

Anderson to Kemp, no run, full delivery, on off, dug out towards the bowler

South Africa 89/3   JM Kemp 18* (20b 1x6)

13.2

Schofield to Kemp, 1 run, I know Kemp hits the ball hard, but this is something else - he's lost a good Mars Bar Kingsize' worth off the bottom of the bat with the drive to long-on. Is Prior's shout to "Get on that" referring to the wood or the ball?

13.4

Schofield to Kemp, no run, full delivery, defended on the front foot

13.5

Schofield to Kemp, no run, Schofield saw him coming, aimded at his legs, he could only pat it back

13.6

Schofield to Kemp, no run, shapes to cut and misses

South Africa 91/4   JM Kemp 19* (24b 1x6)

14.2

Anderson to Kemp, 1 run, and Kemp shows him how it's done with a cover drive for a single

14.6

Anderson to Kemp, 1 run, hard drive to long-off for a quick strike-stealing single

South Africa 94/5   JM Kemp 21* (26b 1x6)

15.1

Mascarenhas to Kemp, OUT, another pull which doesn't come off and skies high. Now, Prior did very well there to make the call in a sea of fielders, and cut right through them to take a difficult catch, leaping forward at the last second

JM Kemp c †Prior b Mascarenhas 21 (39m 27b 0x4 1x6) SR: 77.77

South Africa 94/6   JM Kemp 21 (27b 1x6)
