A surprise move by Graeme Smith - opening the bowling with left arm spinner, Robin Peterson - paid off big time against England in the 21st. ODI WC match in Chennai.

He claimed both Andrew Strauss and Kevin Pietersen in hs first over and added Ian Bell, shortly after.

However,  Jon Trott (46) and Ravi Bopara (60) gave their bowlers a total to bowl to. England: 171. Imran Tahir 4/38.

SA: 165. Hashim Amla 42, Chris Broad 4/15, James Anderson 2/16.
