OVERS 20: West Indies 72/7
They require 337 more runs to win off 180 balls.
South Africa win by 257 runs - As expected the initial target of 409 was too much for the West Indies. The player of the Match is Abraham Benjamin de Villiers. He scored the fastest 150 ever in ODI's and South Africa became the first team to reach 400 in Australia. Imran Tahir then cashed in with 5/45. What will the papers say now? On Monday morning it was all doom and gloom? Let's wait and see.
Wicket: Morne Morkel continues. Wicket!! Morkel takes his second wicket as Benn edges into the beard of Amla in the slips. That all over folks!!!!
Wicket: Dalo, the Steyn remover returns to the attack. SIX!! Steyn is send over long-off. WOW, that was power! 150 up!! WICKET!! Amla removes Holder with a simple catch at mid-wicket. A fighting innings from the skipper, comes to an end. Benn is the last man in as we take drinks!!
Morne Morkel returns and bowls to Jason Holder. He starts well outside the off stump. FIFTY !! off 44 deliveries to Jason Holder, as he pushes it into the covers. Four! A good shot by Taylor over cover. He ends the over with two more.
Abbott continues. Funny!!! It falls between the fielders, as Taylor skies it, once again. He adds a single as a result. Four!! Holder pulls it to mid-wicket. Well played. A good over for the West Indies as they take 8 off it.
Tahir bowls his last over. They start with two singles. Taylor skies it again and this time it clears Abbott, at backward point. They take a single. Four! Holder times it well over extra-cover. SIX! to end the Tahir spell over long-on. Tahir ends on 5/45.
Abbott continues. Four! Abbott goes for the yorker, but Taylor plays a one handed shot to mid-wicket. WHAT??? Taylor skies it to third man and dissects Miller and Morkel.
Tahir continues to Jerome Taylor. Good bowling by Tahir here. It's a maiden!!
Abbott returns to the attack. An appeal for LBW against Holder is turned down. The impact was outside the off stump! Another appeal for LBW is turned down against Holder. That would have hit the leg stump and no review!!!
Wicket: Tahir bowls his 8th over. Wicket!! It's a five-for to Imran Tahir!!! as he bowls Ramdin. That was the googly. Jerome Taylor is in next as Tahir has 5/32.
100: Faf continues. A few easy singles and then FOUR! Ramdin cuts to third man and it's 100 UP!! Once again it's too easy for the West Indies now with Faf bowling.
Tahir continues. Four! Well played over cover by Holder. A good recovery by Tahir to finish the over.
Faf continues and drops it short. Not good. They add a couple. Once again it's easy pickings here as they add 6 more runs in the over. Faf is clearly not the answer as the fifth/sixth bowler.
Imran Tahir continues as they start with two singles. Six! Holder strikes it well. It's maximum over long-off again.
Faf du Plessis comes into the attack. An average over by Francois as he concedes four easy runs.
Tahir bowls his 5th over. Six!! Jason Holder sends Tahir over lobg-off. Shot!! It's 8 off the over in the end.
Steyn continues. Holder has pulled a muscle here and is receiving attention. It may even be cramps. Good bowling from Steyn.
Wicket: Imran Tahir continues and there's an appeal for a stumping against Sammy. Wicket!! Great work by de Kock!! Replays shows that Sammy's foot was in the air. Tahir is on fire!! Andre Russell comes in next to try and save this for the West Indies. Russell survives a LBW appeal. Wicket!! next ball. Great catch by Abbott. That is Abbott's wicket and not Tahir's. Russell top edges and is well caught at point. Jason Holder is in next.
Steyn continues after drinks. Edged!! Sammy edges one past the slips for a single. This is a better spell from Steyn.
Imran Tahir continues. Ramdin survives an appeal for LBW. There was an inside edge. Only a single off the over. Well done Imran!! DRINKS!!
The Steyn remover returns as we almost have a run-out. Why are they taking these risks when they are already so deep in trouble? Good bowling from Steyn outside off. After 15 overs South Africa had 58/1.
Tahir continues as the West Indies are in all sorts of trouble here. It's three runs off the over as the required rate is 9.69.
Darren Sammy joins Ramdin, as Morkel continues. Four! Ramdin cuts well past point. Morkel beats Ramdin outside the off stump. Good fielding by Miller stops a possible boundary.
Wicket: Denesh Ramdin is the new batsman as Imran Tahir comes into the attack. WICKET!!! Miller takes a beauty at long-on. What a catch above his head. Lendl Simmons is in next. Wicket!! Simmons is gone for a duck, as he is struck LBW. Well done Tahir.
Wicket: Morkel starts with a shorter delivery and Smith takes a single. Carter pulls another shorter delivery for two. FIFTY UP!! Two runs to Carter as Tahir saves a boundary at third man. Wicket!! Carter is caught by Abraham de Villiers for 10. Morkel is lucky here as Umpire Gould missed calling a no ball off the previous delivery. In theory Carter was caught off a free-hit delivery....
Abbott continues. Four! SHOT!! That was in the Dwayne Smith slot!! Well played to mid-on. After 10 overs South Africa had 30/1.
Morkel continues. Four! Smith plays that well over deep mid-wicket. Shot! They add another. Another good one from Morne.
Abbott continues. Carter edges for a single to third man. Dropped!! Imran Tahir drops a sitter at short mid-wicket. Will Smith make SA pay for that like they did on Sunday when Amla put Dhawan down?? Four!! Smith swings and gets an inside edge to fine leg. That just missed the stumps.
We have a bowling change as Morne Morkel comes into the attack, with two slips in place. It's a good start from Morkel. They survive a run-out as they take a silly single. Smith gave up as Rossouw misses the stumps.
Abbott continues. Four! over extra cover by Dwayne Smith, as Abbott offers width. They add a leg bye. He was lucky to get away there, Abbott. Four! Well played by Carter. It was short and pulled to square leg.
Dale Steyn bowls his third over. Good pace as he beats Smith outside the off stump. Steyn is bowling at 145km/h now. Smith survives as Steyn takes evasive action. That could have been out, but could also have taken his head off!! Smith takes a single as a result. They add another to fine leg.
Wicket: Abbott continues as they add one to mid-wicket. OUT!! Samuels edges one and de Kock makes no mistake. It's two for Abbott as Samuels leaves for a DUCK!! No footwork and it was fuller. Jonathan Carter is in next.
Steyn continues. They start with a leg bye and then it's a leg side wide! He beats Samuels with a good delivery outside the off stump.He follows that up with a slower delivery.
Wicket: Kyle Abbott takes the other new ball. Gayle starts with a leg bye. He strays down the leg side and Smith collects one more. Wicket!!! Gayle gives himself room and is bowled by Abbott!! That came back and hit the leg stump. Marlon Samuels walks in next and survives a LBW shout. Wide!!
Dale Steyn takes the new ball to Chris Gayle and Dwayne Smith. It's swing first up. Smith starts with a single and it just eludes Miller at point. Gayle swings to mid-wicket and they add three. Steyn beats Smith outside the off stump. SIx!! to end the over as Smith plays that over deep mid-wicket.
South Africa 408/5 afater 50 overs. - What can we say. It was the ABD show and he was well supported by Rilee Rossouw and Hashim Amla. In the end they reached 408 which is the highest ever score on Australian soil and the second highest ever World Cup score. Can Chris Gayle match this today?
AB starts with two and then SIX!! It's that shot again!! He goes outside off and pulls it over fine leg! SIX!! This time over deep mid-wicket. Four!! over the bowlers head. 150!!! for AB off 64 deliveries. SIX!! It's 400 UP!!! as AB sends that over long-on. He ends the innings with a six over square leg!! It's 30 off the last over.
Andre Russell continues. SIX!! Behardien joins the party. he adds one more. Dropped!! AB is dropped on the mid-wicket fence. Dropped again!! This time at short cover. OH DEAR!!!
100: Holder continues. It's a FOUR AND A SIX BY AB!! He brings up the second fastest 100 in the history of the World Cup.That was also a no ball!! It's another no ball and another four! Once again AB goes outside off and pulls it to fine leg. The free-hit goes for four more! It's a full toss and it's the same modus operandi as the previous delivery. FOUR! AB is on fire!! He reverse sweeps Holder to what was point. AB skies the next and Benn can't get to it. SIX!! as AB sends that to mid-wicket. 34 off the over!!!!
Wicket: Russell continues. AB walks outside the off stump and hits it one handed to fine leg for FOUR! He adds another. Wicket!! A good catch with one hand by Taylor at long-off, as Miller departs for 20. What a catch!! Behardien is the new man in and takes a first ball single to get AB back on strike. AB steals another single and was out if that hit. He is safe!!
Jason Holder returns to the attack. It's six runs off the first three deliveries as they continue to rotate the strike and run well. Wide!! outside the off stump. He adds two more. MISSED!!! Miller swings and skies it into the covers. It falls safe and he takes two.
300: Russell continues. It's 300 up for South Africa as they continue to rotate the strike and take the singles. It's a SIX!! over fine leg to end the over, as AB goes outside off and flicks it to fine leg. SHOT!!
Benn continues as AB sweeps and it's FOUR!! He chips the next over fine leg for four more! He pushes the next into the covers for a single.Great running as they take two when it should have been a single. Wide!!
Wicket: Wicket!!! Russell continues. Rossouw swings at a wider delivery and is caught by Ramdin for 61. The highest fourth wicket partnership for South Africa at World Cup's comes to an end. It's Miller time!! David joins AB and gets off the mark with a couple. They add two more singles. It's well timed by Miller as they add two more.
Benn continues as Rossouw reverse sweeps and misses. Four! It's a full toss and he finds the gap in the covers. Four!! AB sweeps to square leg. He is picking the gaps here. They steal two more singles.
Andre Russell comes into the attack. They continue with their good running. FOUR AND FOUR!! by AB. The first over mid-wicket and the next over extra cover. WOW!!!
Interesting bowling change as Sulieman Benn comes into the attack. They start with two singles. Six!! Sweetly timed by AB over extra-cover to bring up the 100 partnership!!! Four!! A full toss goes to the mid-wicket fence. Four more!! It's FIFTY TO AB!! off 30 deliveries. It's 18 off the over. That's 72 in the power play. It's the most runs in a power play at the 2015 World Cup.
50: Jerome Taylor continues. Good running as Rossouw just makes his ground and they add a single. AB pushes the next to the man at cover and an overthrow gives them a second run. Oh Dear!! It's 3 wides as it travels past the keeper. AB is lucky to find a gap in the covers and takes one more. SHOT!! SIX!! It's short and wide and Rossouw directs that over the point fence! FIFTY FOR ROSSOUW!!
Jason Holder continues. It's smart cricket from AB here as he is sitting back and allows Rossouw to take most of the action here. They start with three singles. Four! The yorker goes wrong and AB plays it past the bowler. Four! into the covers as AB takes anything loose on offer. It's 12 off this over.
Jerome Taylor starts with a full toss and it's Four!! into the covers by Rossouw. Shot!! FIFTY PARTNERSHIP off 39 deliveries!!! He adds two more into the covers to bring up the 200!
