Impressively tight start by England.

2.2

Mascarenhas to Smith, no run, tries to go on the off side this time - Smith steps outside leg, tries to loft it but finds cover

2.4

Mascarenhas to Smith, no run, bashed out to cover

3.4

Broad to Kallis, 1 run, shorter and cut to Rashid at third man

HH Gibbs    1* (3b)      SCJ Broad    1-0-6-1

5.1

Broad to Gibbs, no run, beaten by a beauty! A fine outswinger which beats Gibbs' loose stroke outside off

5.2

Broad to Gibbs, no run, another swing and a miss as Gibbs charges down the pitch. Foster flings the ball at the stumps, threateningly

Swann to Kallis, 1 run, well flighted and he flicks it uppishly to the leg-side - not in control of that shot at all

End of over 7 (3 runs) South Africa 31/1 (81 runs required from 13 overs, RR: 4.42, RRR: 6.23)
HH Gibbs    3* (10b)      GP Swann    1-0-3-0
JH Kallis    17* (17b 2x4)      SCJ Broad    2-0-8-1

Rashid now

7.1

Rashid to Kallis, 1 run, classical legspinner guided out to the off side

7.3

End of over 10 (8 runs) South Africa 50/1 (62 runs required from 60 balls, RR: 5.00, RRR: 6.20)

HH Gibbs    10* (17b)      GP Swann    2-0-9-0

Well, who'd have thunk it, eh? South Africa, 50 from 10 overs. Well, well, well.

10.1

Mascarenhas to Gibbs, no run, big shout for lbw, but it struck him outside the line. Ball balloons to backward point but Collingwood's throw is terrible and Foster takes it miles above his head

Mascarenhas to Gibbs, 1 run, forced off the back foot out to cover

10.3

Mascarenhas to Kallis, 1 run, nudged out to long-on

HH Gibbs    12* (20b)      AU Rashid    2-0-12-0

Still no great intent by South Africa, though the pitch has slowed down significantly. It's a walk in the park really. Here's Rashid

11.1

Rashid to Kallis, SIX, huge shot! A slow long-hop which sat out and begged to be flogged. Kallis thusly flogged

11.2

Rashid to Kallis, 1 run, tossed up - good response

11.3

Rashid to Gibbs, no run, tossed it up wide of the off stump and induces a play-and-miss. Big turn

11.4

Rashid to Gibbs, 1 run, another flogging pull - well fielded by Wright on the boundary

11.5

Rashid to Kallis, no run, beautiful delivery! Drift there into the right hander before spinning away. Rashid's best delivery by a long shot - a corking jaffa

11.6

Rashid to Kallis, 1 run, leg-side this time and swept hard to steal the strike

End of over 12 (9 runs) South Africa 65/1 (47 runs required from 48 balls, RR: 5.41, RRR: 5.87)

12.1

Mascarenhas to Kallis, no run, good, straight ball cutting back into Kallis who smacks it back to the the bowler

12.2

Mascarenhas to Kallis, 1 run, swinging into the right hander, flicked to long-on

12.3

Mascarenhas to Gibbs, FOUR, solid thump over midwicket! Absolutely hammers it for four to bring up their 54-ball fifty partnership

12.4

Mascarenhas to Gibbs, 1 run, nice thinking by Mascarenhas, pitching it fuller

12.5

Mascarenhas to Kallis, no run, forced to cover

12.6

Mascarenhas to Kallis, 1 run, expansively driven but only for a single

End of over 13 (7 runs) South Africa 72/1 (40 runs required from 42 balls, RR: 5.53, RRR: 5.71)
JH Kallis    41* (39b 2x4 1x6)      AD Mascarenhas    4-0-22-0
HH Gibbs    18* (24b 1x4)      AU Rashid    3-0-21-0

13.1

Anderson to Kallis, no run, Kallis murders this - absolutely hammers it of the back and Collingwood somehow stops it at short extra cover with one hand

13.2

Anderson to Kallis, 1 run, short of a length and it hurries onto Kallis, the ball hitting high on his bat - a mistimed pull. Difficult to time the ball on this pitch, at this stage of the evening

13.4

Anderson to Gibbs, 1 wide, well wide of the off stump

End of over 14 (11 runs) South Africa 83/1 (29 runs required from 36 balls, RR: 5.92, RRR: 4.83)
JH Kallis    46* (43b 3x4 1x6)      JM Anderson    3-0-22-0
HH Gibbs    23* (26b 2x4)      AD Mascarenhas    4-0-22-0

Swann glides into the attack

14.1

Swann to Gibbs, SIX, bosh! Take that. Skips down the pitch and dispatches Swann over his head for six

The end is nigh

14.2

Swann to Gibbs, no run, ping! Gibbs gave that everything but was beaten by the flight

14.3

Swann to Gibbs, 1 run, flings down a dart, Gibbs steps to leg and carves out to the off side

14.4

Swann to Kallis, 1 run, elegantly stroked, opening the face out to the off side

14.5

Swann to Gibbs, OUT, goddim! Well bowled, Swann. Tossed it up and Gibbs tried to pull, but the turn sneaked under his bat to shatter his stumps

14.6

JH Kallis    47* (44b 3x4 1x6)      JM Anderson    3-0-22-0

19 to win. Here we go. Here's Broad

15.1

Broad to Kallis, 1 run, opened the face down to third man

15.2

Broad to de Villiers, no run, Broad tries something different, stretching out his left arm just before he reached his delivery stride, but de Villiers works it out behind square. Bopara's throw hits the stumps, but, frankly, vast amounts of whatever

15.3

Broad to de Villiers, no run, a slower bouncer which hits de Villiers in the chest

15.4

Broad to de Villiers, no run, chopped down. Foster fields

15.5

Broad to de Villiers, 1 run, another full toss which he forces to leg

15.6

Broad to Kallis, FOUR, another full toss and Kallis smacks it behind square for four, bringing up his fifty from 46 balls

His first fifty in Twenty20s. Take a bow, then win it and let us go home

End of over 16 (6 runs) South Africa 99/2 (13 runs required from 24 balls, RR: 6.18, RRR: 3.25)
JH Kallis    52* (46b 4x4 1x6)      SCJ Broad    3-0-14-1
AB de Villiers    3* (5b)      GP Swann    3-0-19-1

16.1

Swann to de Villiers, no run, outside off, stroked to mid-off

42 runs have come in singles for South Africa

16.2

Swann to de Villiers, 2 runs, skips down the pitch and cracks this miles in the air! That's hit jupiter! Bopara doesn't pick it up initially then drops it going for a glory-slide. Pretty shoddy effort to be frank

16.3

Swann to de Villiers, 1 run, pushed to leg

16.4

Swann to Kallis, no run, cuts and misses

16.5

Swann to Kallis, 1 run, worked to long-on

16.6

Swann to de Villiers, 3 runs, beautiful little late-cut-cum-dab by de Villiers

End of over 17 (7 runs) South Africa 106/2 (6 runs required from 18 balls, RR: 6.23, RRR: 2.00)
AB de Villiers    9* (9b)      GP Swann    4-0-26-1
JH Kallis    53* (48b 4x4 1x6)      SCJ Broad    3-0-14-1

Right. Please let this be the last over. Six to win

17.1

Rashid to de Villiers, no run, very well bowled, flighting this on middle and it squares him up

17.2

Rashid to de Villiers, 2 runs, short, wide, cut

17.3

Rashid to de Villiers, OUT, lovely ball, lovely catch - well bowled Rashid! Classic legspinner's delivery which bounced and turned on de Villiers, edging it to Collingwood's right at first slip. Fine catch

AB de Villiers c Collingwood b Rashid 11 (8m 12b 0x4 0x6) SR: 91.66

17.4

Rashid to Duminy, no run, nice flight, good pace and raps him on the body

17.5

Rashid to Duminy, no run, good googly turns away from Duminy. This is very impressive from Rashid

17.6

Rashid to Duminy, 1 run, sharp turn back into the left-hander

Well bowled young man

End of over 18 (3 runs) South Africa 109/3 (3 runs required from 12 balls, RR: 6.05, RRR: 1.50)
JP Duminy    1* (3b)      AU Rashid    4-0-24-1
JH Kallis    53* (48b 4x4 1x6)      GP Swann    4-0-26-1

18.1

Anderson to Duminy, 1 run, tickled to fine leg

18.2

Anderson to Kallis, FOUR, short and wide, Kallis crashes it for four behind square

And there's the win. A thumping for England by a team surely heading towards the final of this tournament. Their run-chase may have lacked the pizazz we were expecting, but such was the slow nature of the pitch that they just milked the singles. Outstanding bowling and fielding crushed England for 111, and although the hosts were tight in the field, they had so little to defend. Well, that's about it from us. Don't forget to check out the bulletin and, of course, we'll be back for more tomorrow. Join us then.
