ICC World Cup, 2006/07 / Wicket commentary

ICC World Cup - 7th match, Group A

Netherlands v South Africa

South Africa won by 221 runs

0.2

Stelling to de Villiers, OUT, Gotcha! Stelling nails de Villiers. Short in length, well outside off and de Villiers couldn't resist a flash. All he got was a under edge which was safely pouched by the 'keeper.

AB de Villiers c †Smits b Stelling 0 (2m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

South Africa 0/1   GC Smith 0* (0b)   WF Stelling 0.2-0-0-1

18.6

Borren to Smith, OUT, Smith perishes slogging. Heaves, a fullish delivery on the middle stump line, across the line, gets a top edge and it skies towards backward point. After few nervous moments under the swirling ball, he holds on to it and the South African captain is back in the hutch

GC Smith c van Bunge b Borren 67 (75m 59b 6x4 2x6) SR: 113.55

South Africa 114/2   JH Kallis 43* (54b 4x4 1x6)   PW Borren 2-0-14-1

30.5

van Troost to Gibbs, OUT, The looter is gone! The slaughter ends. He charges down the track and goes for another six but ends up holing out to Szwarczynski at long-on, who does very well to judge a spiralling skier

HH Gibbs c Szwarczynski b van Troost 72 (46m 40b 4x4 7x6) SR: 180.00

South Africa 219/3   JH Kallis 76* (85b 8x4 1x6)   LP van Troost 1.5-0-17-1
