Played at Trent Bridge, Nottingham (neutral venue)
16 June 2009 - day/night match (20-over match)
1.1

Singh to Gibbs, 1 run, high full toss on the off stump, pushed towards point and ROhit Sharma misses the run out chance. He missed the stumps at the striker's end and sMith was nowhere in picture. Smith is not happy with the call and shrugs at Gibbs

1.2

Singh to Smith, 1 run, full in length outside off stump, dabbed to third man

1.3

Singh to Gibbs, FOUR, lovely cover drive. Great to watch. This man can make batting look really easy, as they say. It was full and in the slot all right but Gibbs stayed still, remained adjacent to the line and caressed it through extra cover.

1.4

Singh to Gibbs, OUT, ah! the commentator's curse. He gets a fatal inside edge. It was a heavily packed off-side as Dhoni had moved an extra fielder after the previous four and Gibbs went for the leg side. Mistake. It wasn't all that short and it was outside off stump, Gibbs went for the pull and dragged it back to his stumps.

HH Gibbs b Singh 5 (7m 3b 1x4 0x6) SR: 166.66

1.5

Singh to de Villiers, no run, beaten on the drive. RP angled it outside off and Ab ended up chasing it

1.6

Singh to de Villiers, FOUR, What a feisty cut. It was slightly short and not all that wide from the off stump but Ab bent his knees to hold his balance and unfurled the horizontal shot to perfection. The ball raced to the backward point boundary

South Africa 17/1   RP Singh 1-0-10-1
3.1

Singh to de Villiers, FOUR, length delivery around the off stump, no slip in place and AB partly steers it, partly edges it through vacant slip region. Perhaps, more deliberate than edged.

3.2

Singh to de Villiers, no run, on and around the off stump, full in length, steered to backward point region.

3.3

Singh to de Villiers, FOUR, Slap! Short and wide and AB doesn't miss out on those. He was on the front foot but shifted his weight at the last minute to crack it past point. Fine-leg moves up now. deep point in place.

3.4

Singh to de Villiers, no run, shuffles towards off to tap the length delivery to backward point

3.5

Singh to de Villiers, 1 run, short in length, gets the bottom edge on the cut but will pick up a single to third man

3.6

Singh to Smith, 2 runs, short in length, outside off, cut away to wide third man region

South Africa 38/1   RP Singh 2-0-21-1
