Batting first after winning the toss, Australia made 9/170
after the 49 overs which were completed when the time limit was
reached, South Africa need 171 in 49 overs to win ...

11 to get in 3 overs (5 was wrong in last posting)

After 46:               1/160   (Wessels 70, Kirsten 49, Extras 13)

Reid to Wessels, who cuts, wide of Whitney at third man, four,
Two from a leg glance.  Nothing form the next, played into the
off side.  Wessels drives, through the field, who are mostly up
now, four more.    Single down to third man, and that's it.

After 46.5:             1/171   (Wessels 81, Kirsten 49, Extras 13)

=       Wessels         Not Out                  81
=       Kirsten         Not Out                  49
=                               Extras           13
=                                       1/      171

=       Win to South Africa by 9 wickets - an easy win too.
