and Prince finishes it off in style with a terrific lofted shot over long-on
We'll leave the last words to Maulik who writes in relation to the organisers' long list of banned items: "Seeing such low attendance, are you sure spectators are not part of the banned list?" Good night.
Well, an emphatic shot in which to bring up a win - and, in spite of a relatively cautious last few overs by South Africa, it was a fair walk in the park for them. Ireland were, as they have been all tournament, courageous and never gave up.
Prince cracks this off the back foot, and that should be four at a wide long-off - but no, a superb piece of fielding from Bray out there, with Ronaldo-like footwork, prevents four
a huge full toss which Kallis does well to pull

Jon Kendall suggests a thermos of (tomato) soup, or even a coconut. Only if it's an ICC approved coconut, and we hear they're rather thin on the ground (and in the trees)
defended out to cover
gloriously driven out to deep extra, but just a single
Henry emails: "I'm just done reading the press release. Were you aware that the ICC hasn't followed its own naming guidelines re: the ICC CWC 2007, shortening the title to CWC in the final paragraph. How can they expect any members of the public to follow their restrictive prohibitions if they can commit such an egregious sin...Tsk tsk ..."
neatly swept around the corner
"Reading the list of prohibited and restricted Items, I feel as if the matches are being held in India," says Amit. "I remember standing for hours and not able to take anything in for the matches back home. I was looking forward to my trip to Barbados...now it will be like walking into the Wankhede."
on leg stump and it's worked by Prince through midwicket
ah that's the Kallis we know and love. An expansive, flourishing drive straight to deep extra cover for a single
11 to win from 32. South Africa are sweating. Come on - bash it
driven neatly down the ground
lovely crisp clunk of that bat as Prince pulls it just over midwicket, and just wide of mid-on

A security guard writes: "I am a security guard. We just follow the orders. Please don't hate us for our short-sighted planners."

Just 18 needed now
