ICC World Twenty20 - 12th match, Group C

Afghanistan v South Africa

South Africa won by 59 runs

0.1

Shapoor Zadran to Smith, no run, fizzer! Cracking delivery, outside off, lifting, seaming, and bursting past the edge. Lively start!

0.2

Shapoor Zadran to Smith, FOUR, a touch too short this time, too much width as well, and Smith clobbers that through the covers for the first boundary

0.3

Shapoor Zadran to Smith, FOUR, short again, too wide, and pulled emphatically through wide mid-on. Two in two

0.4

Shapoor Zadran to Smith, no run, fuller length this time, still wide of off stump, but no stroke from Smith

0.5

Shapoor Zadran to Smith, no run, full and swinging away from wide outside off. Smith reaches for a cover-drive but can't connect properly

0.6

Shapoor Zadran to Smith, FOUR, too wide once again, swinging away and Smith reaches with greater success this time. A futile chase on the cover boundary, and that's an expensive start

South Africa 12/0   GC Smith 12* (6b 3x4)

1.4

Mirwais Ashraf to Smith, 1 run, flicked firmly to short fine leg, where Noor Ali fumbles to gift an extra run

South Africa 15/1   GC Smith 13* (7b 3x4)

2.1

Shapoor Zadran to Smith, 1 run, clipped off the toes, out to square leg

2.4

Shapoor Zadran to Smith, FOUR, full and targetting the blockhole, Smith had to dig that out late but squeezed it through the gap at third man

2.5

Shapoor Zadran to Smith, 2 runs, too short and wide, but just helped into the leg-side with a measured pull. Tidied up in the deep

2.6

Shapoor Zadran to Smith, SIX, short, squatted away, a fat top-edge, and that clears everything and everyone! Plops over the fine-leg boundary for six! A brisk start from the captain

South Africa 31/1   GC Smith 26* (11b 4x4 1x6)

3.3

Mirwais Ashraf to Smith, 1 run, tighter line and length, worked into space

South Africa 33/1   GC Smith 27* (12b 4x4 1x6)

4.1

Mohammad Nabi to Smith, no run, looped onto a good length, and watchfully defended

4.2

Mohammad Nabi to Smith, OUT, Nabi strikes! Good length again, Smith was drawn into the stroke but was onto the ball early, and sent a spiralling chance down to long-off, where the skipper steadied himself to take a fine catch

GC Smith c Nawroz Mangal b Mohammad Nabi 27 (20m 14b 4x4 1x6) SR: 192.85

South Africa 45/2   GC Smith 27 (14b 4x4 1x6)
