Player Of The Match
- V Sehwag retired hurt on 14* from 32/1 to 146/4
The least important match of the tournament produced the most excitement, but South Africa got over their early jitters and chased the target of 216 with five wickets and eight balls to spare.
Today's was an inconsequential game that both sides took seriously
