ICC World Twenty20 - 15th match, Group E

0.5

Anderson to Smith, FOUR, leg-side, Smith eases it off his hips and the ball shoots away, much to fine for deep square leg to get anything on it

1.4

Broad to de Villiers, FOUR, seconds ... half volley which de Villiers creams between cover and extra cover

1.5

Broad to de Villiers, FOUR, Broad drops slightly short and de Villiers leans back and heaves that over midwicket ...a one-bounce four. The crowd goes wild.

South Africa 16/1   AB de Villiers 8* (4b 2x4)   SCJ Broad 0.5-0-8-1
