England were off the block to a great start finally in this World Cup. Now, with their tail already up in earlier matches, this ensured that they ended up at a fair target. Pietersen dominated the attack and they were 98 for 1 in 11.1 overs. However, they barely managed to survive the same rate in the remaining overs even though they had ample wickets.Botha was very effective in curbing the remaining batsmen.
South Africa began their chase on a disastrous note. Soon they were floundering at 53 for 5 in 9.5 overs. With half the overs gone and all of the batsmen done, it was neigh impossible task. To their credit Duminy-Boucher put 37 in 3.4 overs and then Duminy-Botha added 21 in 2.4. Everyone tried but it was too much an ask.
