Billy Stelling814315.37253210
0.2 to AB de Villiers, Gotcha! Stelling nails de Villiers. Short in length, well outside off and de Villiers couldn't resist a flash. All he got was a under edge which was safely pouched by the 'keeper.. 0/1
Darron Reekers513507.00174110
Ryan ten Doeschate705808.28207201
Tim de Leede4048012.0015110
Peter Borren805216.50134100
18.6 to GC Smith, Smith perishes slogging. Heaves, a fullish delivery on the middle stump line, across the line, gets a top edge and it skies towards backward point. After few nervous moments under the swirling ball, he holds on to it and the South African captain is back in the hutch. 114/2
Daan van Bunge4056014.0093600
Luuk van Troost4059114.7584510
30.5 to HH Gibbs, The looter is gone! The slaughter ends. He charges down the track and goes for another six but ends up holing out to Szwarczynski at long-on, who does very well to judge a spiralling skier. 219/3

Shaun Pollock63410.66330010
4.1 to B Zuiderent, That's the danger! Pollock, after taking away numerous deliveries, brings this one back in. It landed on the same spot that the others had pitched - on a length and outside off, but this one slided in. Zuiderent was so used to leaving everything that he repeated the robotic leave. To his horror the ball crashed into the off stump. 6/2
Andre Nel611903.16283000
Charl Langeveldt602213.66264000
14.2 to AN Kervezee, Kervezee falls to a pull shot. Banged in short and outside off, he fetches it from there, the ball hits the top half of the bat and balloons to Pollock at mid-on.. 33/3
Andrew Hall611512.50272000
19.2 to DLS van Bunge, on the pads and given! pitched just a tad outside the line of off stump and coming in, van bunge tries to turn it to the on side but is caught at the crease, the ball strikes the top of the front pad, Hall goes up in appeal and Mark Benson raises the finger. Replays show the ball missing the stumps. Perhaps not the best decision. 47/4
Graeme Smith803214.00304000
26.5 to ES Szwarczynski, Gone this time! Smith changes tack and fires this one across. Surprises Doeschate who is beaten for pace as he tries to dab it to on side and is caught dead plumb. 72/5
Jacques Kallis401804.50142001
Justin Kemp401824.50182110
37.3 to TBM de Leede, Gone! de Leede is back in the hutch. Full and straight, de Leede tries to heave it over mid-on, bat meets air and the ball meets the middle stump.. 124/7
39.6 to LP van Troost, Captain takes out captain! a slower one from Kemp and van Troost again charges out, attempts a lofted shot but is deceived by the change in pace. Smith moves to his right from mid-on to take the catch. South Africa register thier biggest victory in one-day internationals. 132/9
