ICC World Twenty20 - 14th match, Group E

England v South Africa

South Africa won by 7 wickets (with 10 balls remaining)

1.6

Parnell to Shah, 1 run, Parnell's first poor delivery, down the leg side and flipped for a single

England 5/2   OA Shah 1* (1b)

2.1

Steyn to Shah, 1 run, angled down to third man - wideish ball

England 6/2   OA Shah 2* (2b)

3.6

Parnell to Shah, no run, quality over. Pushed out to cover - really, really tight bowling this

England 16/2   OA Shah 2* (3b)

4.6

Kallis to Shah, no run, that's a good, tight line with which to end the over, cutting back into Shah who defends and screams a squeeky, desperate "no"

England 25/2   OA Shah 2* (4b)

6.1

Botha to Shah, 1 run, dabbed out to extra cover - but who's the fielder? Gibbs! In comes the throw and it's a direct hit! Replays are horribly inconclusive - it's impossible to give him out on that evidence but it's yet further proof just how fired-up South Africa are. They're in screaming form tonight

6.4

Botha to Shah, no run, defended on the back foot

6.5

Botha to Shah, 1 run, gives himself room to the leg side, defending out to cover

England 28/3   OA Shah 4* (7b)

7.1

van der Merwe to Shah, no run, defended back to the bowler

7.2

van der Merwe to Shah, no run, well bowled, much quicker and fired into his pads

7.3

van der Merwe to Shah, 1 wide, tries to sweep...but it's a wide

7.3

van der Merwe to Shah, 1 run, flicked to leg for a single - ironic, and slightly ridiculous, cheers that England have found a run

England 30/3   OA Shah 5* (10b)

8.1

Botha to Shah, no run, defended on the off stump

8.2

Botha to Shah, no run, swept to short fine leg

8.3

Botha to Shah, 2 wides, down the leg side and again he tries to sweep, but it's a wide

8.5

Botha to Shah, no run, very fast and straight in at the stumps! A yorker. So hard to dig that out

8.6

Botha to Shah, 1 run, a beamer pulled to deep square leg, but not given as no-ball. Erm - that was neck-high, or certainly above shoulder. Odd decision

England 42/3   OA Shah 6* (14b)

9.1

van der Merwe to Shah, no run, Shah steps outside leg; van der Merwe fires it into the leg side

9.2

van der Merwe to Shah, 1 run, goes leg-side with a sweep but only for a single

9.5

van der Merwe to Shah, 1 run, ooh, fine yorker! Can't do anything with that. Shah was going to sweep, then realised it was heading towards his off stump at a rate of knots, so he adjusted to dab it defensively

England 47/3   OA Shah 8* (17b)

10.1

Botha to Shah, 1 run, a swept single off the pads

10.3

Botha to Shah, no run, another yorker defended

10.4

Botha to Shah, SIX, full toss banged for six! That's woken up the crowd. They're here for sixes, not dots...

10.5

Botha to Shah, no run, defended on the front foot

10.6

Botha to Shah, 1 run, tickled to leg

England 56/3   OA Shah 16* (22b 1x6)

11.1

van der Merwe to Shah, SIX, Shah's got hold of this. A skip down the pitch and he lofts him high and handsome over long-off for six

11.2

van der Merwe to Shah, FOUR, savage! A ferociously slapped four through extra cover

11.3

van der Merwe to Shah, FOUR, more. More! Down the leg side and flogged over midwicket, flat, and very nearly for six

11.4

van der Merwe to Shah, 1 run, tickled to leg

11.6

van der Merwe to Shah, 1 run, a phantom step outside leg, before nudging a single to short midwicket

England 73/3   OA Shah 32* (27b 2x4 2x6)

12.1

Kallis to Shah, 1 run, lovely crunchy shot and he's timed the pants off it, pulling through midwicket but straight to the fielder

England 74/3   OA Shah 33* (28b 2x4 2x6)

13.4

van der Merwe to Shah, 1 wide, a wide down the leg side

13.4

van der Merwe to Shah, 1 run, down the leg side

England 82/5   OA Shah 34* (29b 2x4 2x6)

14.2

Kallis to Shah, FOUR, four down the leg side, clipping it nicely

14.3

Kallis to Shah, no run, odd shot - caught in two minds whether to drive or defend or leave. So, that's three minds he was caught in

14.4

Kallis to Shah, no run, terrific ball on the off stump at 88mph. They just haven't given England a sniff

14.5

Kallis to Shah, OUT, beautiful - brilliant from Kallis. That is a stunning leg-cutter! Shah nibbled and Boucher did the rest. This is some display from South Africa

OA Shah c †Boucher b Kallis 38 (52m 33b 3x4 2x6) SR: 115.15

England 88/7   OA Shah 38 (33b 3x4 2x6)
