TOTAL50 Ov (RR: 5.50, 215 Mins)275/4
Fall of wickets: 1-77 (Ian Bell, 19.3 ov), 2-86 (Matt Prior, 21.3 ov), 3-113 (Owais Shah, 28.1 ov), 4-271 (Andrew Flintoff, 49.2 ov)
49.2 to A Flintoff, bowled him! Flintoff moves outside off stump and tries to flick Steyn past short fine leg, he did it successfully against Nel but Steyn is significantly quicker, Flintoff misses and the ball hits middle stump. 271/4
19.3 to IR Bell, caught! Splendidly done by de Villiers! Kallis bowls a slower ball wide outside off stump, Bell chases it and slashes the ball in the air towards point, de Villiers times his jump to perfection and leaps high in the air to take the catch above his head with both hands. 77/1
21.3 to MJ Prior, caught by de Villiers at point again! Prior slashed at one that was away from his body and hit the ball in the air towards de Villiers who didn't have to jump this time, that was a sitter by his lofty standards. 86/2
28.1 to OA Shah, Philander juggles and he'll thank the heavens it actually stuck, flighted on middle and leg, he gets on his knee and gets a big top edge on the slog sweep, Philander at fine leg gets under it, tries to catch it Aussie style, the ball slips through his hands and he holds onto it when it rebounds off his chest. 113/3

TOTAL49.4 Ov (RR: 5.13, 196 Mins)255
Fall of wickets: 1-50 (Graeme Smith, 7.4 ov), 2-93 (Herschelle Gibbs, 15.4 ov), 3-142 (AB de Villiers, 26.6 ov), 4-149 (Jacques Kallis, 28.6 ov), 5-168 (Mark Boucher, 32.3 ov), 6-202 (Jean-Paul Duminy, 39.4 ov), 7-219 (Johan Botha, 44.1 ov), 8-245 (Vernon Philander, 48.3 ov), 9-249 (Andre Nel, 49.1 ov), 10-255 (Makhaya Ntini, 49.4 ov)
44.1 to J Botha, caught! Something had to give! Botha moved forward and across and swung a length ball towards deep square leg, he didn't get enough on it to clear the boundary and Tim Bresnan, the substitute fielder, ran in to take a well-judged catch. 219/7
7.4 to GC Smith, caught! Harmison strikes in his first over in his comeback match. Harmison pitches the ball on a good length in line with the stumps and seams it across the left-hander, Smith fends at it and gets an edge through to Prior who takes a simple catch. 50/1
39.4 to JP Duminy, caught! Harmison pitches short of a length and slants the ball across Duminy who stays rooted to his crease and reaches out for it, he's looking to run it down to third man but feathers a nick through to Prior who takes a sharp low catch, Harmison delivers in the first over of a spell once again. 202/6
49.1 to A Nel, and he's got it! Fintoff fired in the yorker, Nel went across his stumps looking to chip the ball to fine leg, Flintoff was too fast and the ball crashed into the base of middle stump. 249/9
49.4 to M Ntini, that's the end of that! Flintoff detonates leg stump from the ground with another pinpoint yorker, he flexes his muscles in celebration, England have won the first ODI by 20 runs. 255/10
15.4 to HH Gibbs, England celebrate as Gibbs is bowled! He moved back to cut one that went straight through from Patel, there was no room and the ball was quick, Gibbs missed and Patel hit off stump, the bowling change pays immediate dividends. 93/2
26.6 to AB de Villiers, would you believe it, Pietersen's struck!! He can do little wrong at the moment, de Villiers leans forward and across and flicks a flat delivery in the air towards midwicket where Bell takes a simple catch. 142/3
32.3 to MV Boucher, loud appeal for a stumping! Has Pietersen got another one? Boucher tried to sweep from outside off stump and was beaten, he dragged his back foot outside the crease and took an age to get it back, Prior collected and whipped off the bails, replays showed Boucher's foot to be just on the line, close call but the third umpire's given it out, it didn't look like there was anything grounded behind the line. 168/5
