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

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

South Africa 13/1   GC Smith 7* (7b 1x4)   RP Singh 0.4-0-6-1

Harbhajan Singh to Smith, OUT, Harbhajan has lured Smith to his demise. Smith was charging out, Harbhajan slowed up the pace, retained the flight but got it to dip rapidly on Smith who lunged out in the end, trying to drag it to the on side and top-edging it high to midwicket. Harbhajan pumps his fist.

GC Smith c Jadeja b Harbhajan Singh 26 (37m 26b 2x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

South Africa 59/2   AB de Villiers 27* (22b 4x4)   Harbhajan Singh 0.3-0-2-1

Raina to Duminy, OUT, Stumped! Duminy, who never looked in on this spin track, was beaten in the flight as he lunged forward before he was beaten by the turn. Dhoni did the rest. Seeing Duminy struggle, you just have to nod in admiration at how well AB has played on this spin track.

JP Duminy st †Dhoni b Raina 10 (20m 15b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

South Africa 98/3   AB de Villiers 56* (44b 7x4)   SK Raina 0.4-0-6-1

Jadeja to de Villiers, OUT, AB falls after a very fine knock on a sharply turning track. He rushed down the track, didn't reach the pitch and tried to adjust with a big slog sweep but the ball turned to get the leading edge. Jadeja back-pedaled to get under the ball.

AB de Villiers c & b Jadeja 63 (56m 51b 7x4 0x6) SR: 123.52

South Africa 110/4   MV Boucher 5* (9b 1x4)   RA Jadeja 2.2-0-6-1

Khan to Boucher, OUT, Caught at the long-off boundary. It was full, it was the slower one, and it was around the off stump, Bouch flayed it hard and high to left of RP who holds a good catch running around the boundary.

MV Boucher c Singh b Khan 11 (17m 15b 1x4 0x6) SR: 73.33

South Africa 120/5   JA Morkel 3* (6b)   Z Khan 2.2-0-17-1
