Chris Simpson,the captain, offered some resistence scoring 55 at more than a run a ball, with three sixes. After his dismissal, Queensland had lost half their side for 97. Derek Tate, who grafted his way to an undefeated 55 off 85 balls, ran out of partners as Johan Botha took three lower-order wickets.

Earlier, after choosing to bat, the South Africans got off to a terrible start, losing Boeta Dippenaar, Herschelle Gibbs and Graeme Smith with only 59 on the board. Kallis then got together with Ashwell Prince, and the two added 109 for the fourth wicket. Prince made 50 from 72 balls, but both were dismissed in the 39th over. When Mark Boucher fell cheaply, the South Africans had slumped to 6 for 172, but Justin Kemp and Shaun Pollock injected some late momentum.
