Played at Kennington Oval, London (neutral venue)
13 June 2009 (20-over match)

Pollard to de Villiers, 1 run, yorker, played down to long-off, AB is off


Pollard to de Villiers, 1 run, slower full delviery, AB drives it forcefully, Pollard gets down in time and gets a hand on it, else this was four

South Africa 112/2   AB de Villiers 2* (2b)

Simmons to de Villiers, 1 run, back of a length, hit to extra cover and they scamper through for one

South Africa 115/2   AB de Villiers 3* (3b)

Pollard to de Villiers, 1 run, back of a length, slapped down the ground


Pollard to de Villiers, 1 run, short outside off, dabbed down to third man

South Africa 138/3   AB de Villiers 5* (5b)

Benn to de Villiers, 3 runs, nicely played, opens the face, from in front of stumps, beats Gayle at short third man, but the captain chases well, sticks his boot out to save the boundary


Benn to de Villiers, FOUR, was just hinting to go for the reverse, Benn pulls the length back, and like lightning AB rocks back and pulls it to midwicket


Benn to de Villiers, 1 run, looks for the big sweep, slips down while doing so, gets one. I remember once he slipped while sweeping in Ahmedabad, and hit it out of the ground, and quite a big ground we have at Motera

South Africa 147/3   AB de Villiers 13* (8b 1x4)

Taylor to de Villiers, FOUR, welcomes Taylor with a front-foot pull, the front leg is out of the way, and this is not even very short, just quick hands


Taylor to de Villiers, OUT, big wicket again, Gayle keeps his cool wearing those yellow-rimmed glasses, AB makes room and goes for the big hit down the ground, splices it to the orbit, Gayle at extra cover gets under it and holds on to it, finally those glasses are working

AB de Villiers c Gayle b Taylor 17 (15m 10b 2x4 0x6) SR: 170.00

South Africa 155/4   AB de Villiers 17 (10b 2x4)
