South Africa have wrapped it up in quick time and they are through to the semi-finals. South African seamers made full use of the bowler-friendly conditions, hitting the right line and length and making the ball do the rest. Much was expected from the Pakistan batting line-up, but under pressure they just wilted away into oblivion. Makhaya Ntini was once again unstoppable, taking another 5-for with Charl Langeveldt and Shaun Pollock joining the party with three and two wickets respectively.
