all over at Newlands! Full-pitched delivery outside off stump, Kumble goes down on one knee and drives, gets an inside edge onto off stump and Hall celebrates with a pumped fist, a spin on the heels, and a happy walk back to the dressing room
So, South Africa wrap this affair up by 106 runs and go 2-0 up with two to play. What a clinical win for them. They were in tatters after Zaheer Khan's good opening burst, but Justin Kemp played out of his skin to slam an unbeaten 100*, his maiden in ODIs, in a fantastic, unbeaten 138-run stand for the eighth wicket with Andrew Hall, who was simply amazing with his 56 not-out. In fact, he was the one who encouraged and inspired Kemp to switch from sedate, stoic caution to in-your-face belligerence. The Indian bowling was, to put it mildly, taken to the dhobi in the slog overs, and a total of 274 was just too much.
India's batting once again came a cropper, with only Rahul Dravid and MS Dhoni getting runs, contrasting in nature thought they were. Shaun Pollock picked up three at the top, and finished with a fine 4 for 26, while Hall backed his batting heroics with 3 for 45. Jacques Kallis picked up two, including Dhoni, and South Africa's fielding was outstanding. India have plenty of soul-searching to do.
Expectedly, Kemp receives the Man-of-the-Match award for his breathtaking innings.

full again, tries for the yorker but not accurate enough, and Zaheer checks the shot back to the bowler
full and moving into him, he shuffles and looks to drive down the ground, gets an inside edge perilously close to leg stump
