25 April 2007 (50-over match)
22.6

Tait to Hall, no run, good pace, right up there and scattering a cloud of dust as Hall edges that low, on the front foot, and unconvincingly down towards the slip region

South Africa 87/6   AJ Hall 0* (1b)
24.1

Tait to Hall, no run, awkward bounce to deal with that one, but Hall stays cool as ever defending down off the back foot

24.2

Tait to Hall, 1 run, gets his yorker line all wrong, and that's worked off the toes out to Mr Hussey-Cricket on the deep square boundary and he does a slide and relay with McGrath

South Africa 90/6   AJ Hall 1* (3b)
25.1

Hogg to Hall, no run, tosses that one up, it dips naughtily at the last minute and the batsman rolls out a tame forward drive

25.2

Hogg to Hall, no run, right up there, defended and if Gilchrist is to be believed that was a "Nice one, Georgie"

25.3

Hogg to Hall, 1 run, swished off the toes to short midwicket

25.6

Hogg to Hall, 1 run, turning away towards off again, this shot isn't so neat, an ugly chop down, yet again into the covers

South Africa 93/6   AJ Hall 3* (7b)
26.1

Tait to Hall, OUT, and Tait strikes again! Hall looked to lash that off the back foot through cover, but his feet must have been dipped in the same tub of superglue as Gibbs's as he strikes at the ball away from the body and a thickish edge rips through. Gilchrist makes no mistake

AJ Hall c †Gilchrist b Tait 3 (14m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 37.50

South Africa 93/7   AJ Hall 3 (8b)
