ICC World Twenty20 - 14th match, Group E

England v South Africa

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

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

7.4

van der Merwe to Collingwood, 2 runs, on his legs and chipped just wide - only just! - of midwicket, but South Africa's outfielding on the boundary is slick and alert, saving four without so much as breaking sweat

7.5

van der Merwe to Collingwood, 2 runs, squared up and they steal two more. But Shah is seriously slow out of the blocks and has to dive in - he looks like he's running on sand

7.6

van der Merwe to Collingwood, no run, faster and speared into his pads, pushed out to the off side

England 34/3   RE van der Merwe 1-0-6-0

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

9.3

van der Merwe to Collingwood, 2 runs, a leading edge out to deep extra cover

9.4

van der Merwe to Collingwood, 1 run, driven hard out to long-off

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

9.6

van der Merwe to Collingwood, no run, chipped uppishly, but short of mid-off! This is outstanding bowling, it really is

England 47/3   RE van der Merwe 2-0-11-0

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

11.5

van der Merwe to Collingwood, 1 run, Colly nurdles this to long-on. Top nurdling

11.6

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

England 73/3   RE van der Merwe 3-0-28-0

13.1

van der Merwe to Foster, OUT, gone! Reverse swept but mistimed and short third man makes a leap high to his right, a fine catch

JS Foster c Morkel b van der Merwe 1 (1m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 25.00

13.2

van der Merwe to Mascarenhas, no run, flicked to leg

13.3

van der Merwe to Mascarenhas, 1 run, down the leg side, Mascarenhas works it to square leg

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

13.5

van der Merwe to Mascarenhas, OUT, oh that's awful. Far too close to be cutting, and it's a little quicker than he expected. The off stump is ruined, as are England

AD Mascarenhas b van der Merwe 1 (1m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

13.6

van der Merwe to Swann, 1 run, flicked to the leg side

England 83/6   RE van der Merwe 4-0-32-2
