View dismissal DF Watts c Smith b Langeveldt 24 59 44 2 1 54.54
14.1 Watts falls after a stiff resistance. He looks pretty shattered. Has an uncharacteristic flash at a length-delivery outside off, gets an edge and is swallowed at first slip. 43/2
View dismissal RM Haq c †Boucher b Hall 13 46 33 2 0 39.39
11.2 Andrew Hall gets the breakthrough. Majid Haq falls to a fatal poke outside off stump. Full in length, angling away, Haq opens the bat-face, tries to run it down to third man and nicks it behind. Scotland lose their first wicket. 35/1
View dismissal RR Watson* run out (de Villiers) 31 82 50 4 0 62.00
29.3 Kallis to Brown, good-length ball outside the off, Brown pushes to cover and sets off for a single. The fielder is AB de Villers. He gets to the ball early, lines up the stumps and has a go. Bang on target and Ryan Watson, who is running to the danger end, knows there is no chance of him making it back in time. The decision is referred to the third umpire, but there is no real need. Watson is on his way ... 84/5
View dismissal GM Hamilton c de Villiers b Hall 4 23 13 0 0 30.76
19.1 Hamilton is gone. After pottering around for some time, he suddenly decides to have a go - drives on the up, but sends it straight to cover. 63/3
View dismissal NFI McCallum b Langeveldt 1 24 21 0 0 4.76
24.2 Maybe he should not have gotten off the mark. That single gave him too much confidence. He charges down the track and yorks himself. 71/4
DR Brown not out 45 111 64 3 0 70.31
View dismissal CJO Smith b Pollock 15 38 30 2 0 50.00
38.4 Polly cleans up Smith. Strangling delivery on the off and middle, Smith ends up playing all around it as he tries to work it across the line. 113/6
View dismissal JAR Blain c Kemp b Hall 23 40 35 1 1 65.71
47.4 Super catch by Kemp. Full-pitched outside off stump and Blain slices it away over cover . Kemp runs in and dives low to his left to take a stunner. 163/7
View dismissal PJC Hoffmann run out (†Boucher/Hall) 18 11 11 3 1 163.63
49.6 from Hall, Quite similar to the previous delivery. Well there was a difference. Hall had a direct hit and Hoffman is run out. But a what neat little cameo from him. Lovely hit and giggle effort and Scotland have ended up with their highest WC score. 186/8
