Full commentary

brilliant innings from Waugh, 120 off 110 balls, he brought them back from 48/3 after 11 overs and then 68/3 after 21 overs

and so the semi finals will be Pakistan v New Zealand and for those who weren't convinced about the result of today's match, we'll have Australia v South Africa again

excellent match, once again, the team who really needs to win the match does it, South Africa just didn't have enough to gain from winning

Presentations: Cronje: "271 on that pitch, yeah, we should've defended it... we were never out of it.. Steve gave us a chance, but we didn't take it... we asked the umpires [if Gibbs had control of the catch]"

Waugh: "showed a lot of character... great effort... 3/48 we were struggling... this team's got a lot of character... [SA] are a great side"... [insert your own cliches here] and he gets the Man of the match

so the semis are NZ v Pak on the 16th of Jun from Ye Olde Trafford, and then Aus v SA on the 17th of Jun from Brum. Both matches to start at 0945 GMT, we hope you will return to enjoy our hospitality.
