9 June 2009 - day/night match (20-over match)

Oram to Kallis, FOUR, thats down the pads, right where Kallis likes them, and with no fielder at square leg he clips it off the pads for four, good shot

South Africa 9/0   JH Kallis 7* (5b 1x4)   JDP Oram 0.3-0-5-0

Mills to Kallis, FOUR, fluent drive that, it was a half-volley, granted, but needed to be put away and Kallis played a thumping shot past extra cover for four, balance correct and all that jazz

South Africa 14/0   JH Kallis 12* (10b 2x4)   KD Mills 1.3-0-8-0

Butler to Smith, FOUR, offers some room outside off stump, allowing Smith free the arms and slice that over backward point, third man hustles but cannot cut it off

South Africa 32/0   GC Smith 10* (11b 1x4)   IG Butler 0.1-0-4-0

Diamanti to Smith, FOUR, goes back around when Smith is on strike and bowls a terrible ball, short and wide, so Smith reaches out and slaps the long hop past the fielders for four

South Africa 41/0   GC Smith 17* (16b 2x4)   BJ Diamanti 0.3-0-6-0

Diamanti to Smith, FOUR, wrong line, Diamanti continues to struggle, this one's in the slot and angling into leg stump so all Smith has to do is clear the front leg and go over mid-on for four

South Africa 47/0   GC Smith 22* (18b 3x4)   BJ Diamanti 1-0-12-0

Diamanti to Smith, FOUR, directs a full and straight ball right on middle and off, dangerously Smith backs away, exposing all the sticks, and slashes the ball over point for four

South Africa 61/1   GC Smith 32* (32b 4x4)   BJ Diamanti 2-0-19-0

Mills to de Villiers, FOUR, confident shot! AB plays a spanking pull, off the front foot, in front of square as the bowler slightly errs in length, wasn't a bad ball though by any means

South Africa 72/4   AB de Villiers 5* (2b 1x4)   KD Mills 2.1-0-20-0

NL McCullum to de Villiers, FOUR, a bit short and AB waits and hammers it past cover, Diamanti dives in the deep in vain, that was firmly cut off the back foot

South Africa 81/4   AB de Villiers 13* (6b 2x4)   NL McCullum 3.1-0-13-1

Styris to Duminy, FOUR, bad ball, very wide down the leg stump, Duminy swings at it wildly and somehow gets a faint tickle on it, beating McGlashan and short fine leg for a crucial boundary

South Africa 92/5   JP Duminy 13* (13b 1x4)   SB Styris 1.3-0-8-1
