Well played South Africa, a deserved victory, and they're still unbeaten following their three games in the competition. Man of the Match Albie Morkel's 43 turned their innings in their favour, and then the pace attack bowled cleverly to restrict England. "We obviously made some mistakes in the field, but I think we would have taken 154 to chase down," says a disconsolate Collingwood afterwards, while Smith says: "We know we bat deep. We will move on to Durban now with confidence." South Africa play New Zealand next, but England will play the Kiwis first - on Tuesday. Pakistan's face-off with Sri Lanka is the next match we'll be covering, so do come back tomorrow for that. Until then, from myself and Martin Williamson, it's goodbye.
