SA v Aus 4th ODI

Desperate for a win for to keep the series alive, Australia took a couple of gambles by sending South Africa in and naming their third oldest one-day international debutant of all time.

The fast bowler Shane Harwood, 35, was handed his first ODI cap and was the only change for either side after South Africa’s victory in Cape Town.

Brydon Coverdale writes for cricinfo that the move was made necessary because of Brett Geeves’ fractured foot but Australia could have brought back Ben Laughlin, who performed solidly in his first two ODIs in Durban and Centurion. The late inclusion of Harwood, who was in South Africa training for the IPL, came as Australia sought a wicket-taking fast man to support Mitchell Johnson.

Bob Simpson and Bob Holland are the only Australians who were older than Harwood when they made their one-day international debut. Harwood will get an early chance to show his skills after Ponting’s decision to field on a pitch that he felt had some moisture on the top.

South Africa’s captain Graeme Smith said he would have batted had he won the toss and following their success at Newlands, there was no alteration to their line-up. If South Africa win they will take an unassailable 3-1 lead with a match to play and will confirm their place as the No. 1 ODI side in the world.

South Africa: 1 Graeme Smith (capt), 2 Herschelle Gibbs, 3 Jacques Kallis, 4 AB de Villiers, 5 JP Duminy, 6 Roelof van der Merwe, 7 Mark Boucher (wk), 8 Albie Morkel, 9 Johan Botha, 10 Dale Steyn, 11 Wayne Parnell.

Australia: 1 Brad Haddin (wk), 2 Michael Clarke, 3 Ricky Ponting (capt), 4 David Hussey, 5 Michael Hussey, 6 Callum Ferguson, 7 James Hopes, 8 Mitchell Johnson, 9 Nathan Hauritz, 10 Nathan Bracken, 11 Shane Harwood.

  • Kallis Out 17 off 24b

    Harwood to Kallis, OUT, Harwood gets his maiden ODI wicket! Banged in short outside off, Kallis times that a little too well for his liking, upper-cuts it straight to third man, who’s right at the edge waiting for it and takes a well-judged catch bending forward

  • Hi Andre, I am getting nervous Gibbs is doing well and when that happens, we normally see our backsides, must say I was one of Mickey Arthurs big critics, but you have to give it to him he has done wonders with this side, especially the blooding of new players

  • 34.5 Hauritz to de Villiers, SIX
    34.4 Hauritz to de Villiers, SIX

    With the 2nd SIX AB goes to 55 off 51 balls.

    let’s hope he keeps going and doesn’t get out just as he starts blazing away.

    Now we just need the better option to go our way. :wink:

    When a player get’s dropped there are one of two options available.
    1)He goes on to score BIG
    2)He goes out very soon after.

    I choose option two. :razz:

  • 42.4 Johnson to de Villiers, OUT, bowled on a good length on middle and leg, not quite full for the waft over midwicket that de Villiers was attempting, mistimed it completely and Ferguson at mid-on ran a couple of yards to his left to snap a well-judged catch

    AB de Villiers c Ferguson b Johnson 84 (101m 74b 6×4 3×6) SR: 113.51
