In form Lonwabo Tsotsobe, who conceded just 15 runs off his three overs, was the pick of the Proteas bowlers.

The T20 match was played for South African all rounder Jacques Kallis' foundation, and he himself starred with the bat, scoring 61, as South Africa scored 219 in their stipulated 20 overs.

Colin Ingram played a belligerent innings of 78, and along with Kallis, had a blazing 119-run partnership off 81 balls.

The score kept ticking over with contributions from Farhaan Behardien (20), Justin Ontong (22) before Albie Morkel came in for the final three balls of the innings, which he dispatched for consecutive boundaries. (ANI)
