ICC World Twenty20 - 15th match, Group E

South Africa v England

South Africa won by 19 runs

0.4

Pollock to Wright, OUT, half forward, loose drive, the ball loops to cover who takes it above his head at a very gentle pace

LJ Wright c de Villiers b Pollock 0 (2m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

England 0/1   MJ Prior 0* (0b)   SM Pollock 0.4-0-0-1

4.3

Pollock to Pietersen, OUT, short, pulled behind square with no oomph, Ntini at short fine leg fields and throws down the stumps at the bowler's end ... Pietersen collides with Pollock and is sent sprawling and stumbles into the crease unable to get his bat anywhere near it. He's well short but only because he colided

KP Pietersen run out 15 (16m 14b 3x4 0x6) SR: 107.14

England 24/2   MJ Prior 9* (9b)   SM Pollock 2.3-1-8-1

4.5

Pollock to Collingwood, OUT, uncertain shot with minimal footwork which flies right at slip who clings on to a good catch

PD Collingwood c Kemp b Pollock 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

England 27/3   MJ Prior 12* (10b)   SM Pollock 2.5-1-11-2

12.4

JA Morkel to Prior, OUT, outside off, Prior goes for the inside-out drive and sends the ball high and over to the deep cover who comes in to hold a fairly straightforward catch

MJ Prior c Philander b JA Morkel 32 (57m 31b 1x4 1x6) SR: 103.22

England 82/4   OA Shah 30* (26b 2x6)   JA Morkel 0.4-0-3-1

14.3

JA Morkel to Shah, OUT, cleaned him up with a straight one, Shah swinging away to midwicket with a forceful pull... but he missed

OA Shah b JA Morkel 36 (44m 31b 1x4 2x6) SR: 116.12

England 98/5   A Flintoff 10* (6b 2x4)   JA Morkel 1.3-0-9-2

17.4

M Morkel to Snape, OUT, that's it for Snape; the pressure told after all, with a drive straight to cover

JN Snape c de Villiers b M Morkel 7 (14m 11b 0x4 0x6) SR: 63.63

England 113/6   A Flintoff 16* (14b 2x4)   M Morkel 2.4-0-9-1

18.3

van der Wath to Flintoff, OUT, came right across again - a familiar effort from him this innings - and he's castled by a straight one, the ball taking the top of off

A Flintoff b van der Wath 17 (27m 16b 2x4 0x6) SR: 106.25

England 120/7   AD Mascarenhas 6* (3b 1x4)   JJ van der Wath 3.3-0-24-1
