  South Africa innings (20 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal GC Smith* c †Smith b Haq 38 44 29 6 1 131.03
9.6 a double-wicket over! Smith attempts a shot very similar to his opening partner, he gets on his knee for a slog sweep but gets a thick top edge and the keeper Smith jogs to his right and takes the easiest of catches 88/2
View dismissal JH Kallis b Haq 48 41 31 8 0 154.83
9.3 he gives it a lot of air outside off and tempts Kallis to go for the hoick on his knees, a little too ambitious in the end as he gets a thick inside edge onto his stumps, he looked set for a fifty but it's been a quality innings 87/1
View dismissal HH Gibbs st †Smith b Watson 16 11 14 0 0 114.28
14.3 another wicket falls to the offspinner, he gives it a lot of air and Gibbs dances down the pitch and fails to get behind the line, easy stumping for Smith, Watson was bowling round the wicket 125/3
AB de Villiers not out 79 35 34 5 6 232.35
View dismissal JA Morkel c Coetzer b Drummond 24 14 11 1 2 218.18
17.4 He bowls a low full toss but Morkel fails to get completely underneath it, the ball spoons off the toe of the bat and lands down long-off's throat 176/4
View dismissal MV Boucher c Coetzer b Drummond 2 2 3 0 0 66.66
19.1 one of the most stunning catches you will ever see! Boucher makes room and scoops him down to long-on and the ball appeared to be heading over the rope but Coetzer leapt up, stuck his right hand out and pulled off a stunner while falling backwards, he lands just before the rope, reminds me of Vasbert Drakes' catch in the 2003 World Cup 195/5

View dismissal GM Hamilton* c Duminy b Parnell 5 10 6 1 0 83.33
1.5 he mixes the length by dropping it shorter and Hamilton shapes to biff it over the on side but he tamely mishits it to Duminy at short square-leg, Hamilton was hurried onto the shot 10/2
View dismissal RR Watson b Steyn 4 4 4 1 0 100.00
0.5 Watson exposes his stumps yet again to probably slam him over the off side but he's beaten for pace and the ball clips the top of the middle stump 6/1
View dismissal NS Poonia run out (Parnell/†Boucher) 0 8 1 0 0 0.00
2.2 Steyn to Coetzer, squirts out a fast yorker past the tiny window past backward point and cover point, the placement is good but the running is anything but, the fielder at cover point runs backwards fires the throw to the keeper, the batsmen amble through for the second run and there's hesitation for the third 13/3
View dismissal KJ Coetzer c & b van der Merwe 42 44 32 1 3 131.25
14.1 drops the ball on a good length on seeing the batsman advance, Coetzer makes room, chips down the track and but doesn't quite get to the pitch of the ball and as a result he miscues the loft, van der Merwe sprints to his right and catches it over his head 79/7
View dismissal CJO Smith b Steyn 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
2.3 Scotland are looking really helpless here, Steyn fires a fast yorker on the legstump and Smith is kind enough to expose it, the death rattle follows and the leg stump is flattened 13/4
View dismissal NFI McCallum b Botha 8 13 16 1 0 50.00
6.5 the stumps are a royal mess! Botha fires it very fast and flat, the ball lands on the blockhole and McCallum ends up playing all around it and looks back to see his leg stump splattered a yard or two away and the middle stump pushed back 35/5
View dismissal JH Stander lbw b Botha 2 4 6 0 0 33.33
8.2 fires it full and quick again and Stander shapes to sweep but fails to make contact, the straighter delivery hits his back leg on the full and that's plumb 41/6
View dismissal RM Haq b van der Merwe 15 18 20 0 0 75.00
14.2 make that two in two, he fires this one full and flat on the stumps and Haq plays all around it and loses his offstump 79/8

15.1 fires it full and wide outside off, he makes a lot of room and drags it back onto his off stump 81/9
