South Africa Innings

  • 5.3 Reekers to Smith, SIX, oh ho! Smith breaks free with a dance down the track. Hits through the line and up she disappears over long-off. He doesn't like being tied down. Not by the Dutch atleast.

  • 12.6 de Leede to Smith, SIX, BANG! Full and floated again, hardly any swing and Smith simply stands back, waits, swings his bat ferociously and collects a six over long-on. Beefy blow that

  • 13.5 ten Doeschate to Kallis, SIX, BOSH! Full, straight and too easy for Kallis, who simply swings through the line and clatters it way over midwicket for a huge six. Warner Park is too small for Kallis' force

  • 28.4 van Troost to Gibbs, SIX, Oh ho! Up up and over long off. Another fullish delivery, outside off, and lofted over long-off

  • 29.1 van Bunge to Gibbs, SIX, Violence! Gibbs charged down the track and hoicked it over long on.

  • 29.2 van Bunge to Gibbs, SIX, Murder! Floated on the leg and middle stump line and Gibbs sends it soaring over long-off.

  • 29.3 van Bunge to Gibbs, SIX, Carnage! Flatter one this time but it makes no difference to Gibbs. He just stands there and delivers. This one also has been sucked over long off

  • 29.4 van Bunge to Gibbs, SIX, Wah Wah! Low full toss and guess where this went Yep. A slap slog and it went over deep midwicket! He is going to go for 6 sixes in this over!

  • 29.5 van Bunge to Gibbs, SIX, Short in length, on the off stump line and Gibbs rocks back and swat-pulls it over wide long off. SImply amazing. What a batsman. This is pure violence!

  • 29.6 van Bunge to Gibbs, SIX, He has done it! One-day record. No one has hit six sixes in a row. GIbbs stands alone in that zone. And the minnow bashing continues! Full and outside off and bludgeoned over deep midwicket

  • 34.2 Stelling to Boucher, SIX, Whack! Short. Blink. A pull. Ball is being fetched from deep midwicket

  • 34.4 Stelling to Boucher, SIX, Wow! This one was last seen screaming over long on! Fullish, on the stumps and Boucher just went through the line

  • 35.1 van Troost to Kallis, SIX, Kallis reaches his 15th ODI ton in style. Biffed away over long-off.

  • 37.4 ten Doeschate to Boucher, SIX, HUGE! This is unbelievable. It's the 14th six of the innings as Boucher creams a full ball straight over long-on for a maximum. Sri Lanka managed 14 in a match against Kenya in Kandy in 1996. And South Africa have equalled it now

  • 38.1 Borren to Boucher, SIX, OH HO HO! Another record as Boucher just makes room and unleashes an almighty six over extra cover. This is turning into a bloodbath now

  • 39.4 van Troost to Kallis, SIX, CRACK! Way way over midwicket. Kallis swings neatly, brings out the pendulum arc and watches as the ball soars somewhere in the direction of Cape Town. This is the most sixes in an ODI innings. Trust me, it doesn't get better (worse if you're Dutch)

  • 39.5 van Troost to Kallis, SIX, Take that! Bring out the photocopier and change the orientation a bit. Kallis goes straighter this time and pumels yet another mighty hit. Oh van Troost, what's next?

  • 39.6 van Troost to Kallis, SIX, And that's the way to finish! Short ball and pulled away over midwicket for the last of the sixes. Kallis finishes in style and South Africa end on a mammoth 354 in 40 overs. What a mighty mess.

Netherlands Innings

  • 33.2 Kemp to ten Doeschate, SIX, Clubbed away! short in length, on the middle stump line, and Doeschate rocks back to bludgeon it over deep midwicket
