At Port Elizabeth, February 2. South Africa won by six wickets. Toss: India.
Kallis, recalled to the South African side, won the match for them with an unhurried, elegant 79. The Indian batting had left something to be desired on an unusually slow pitch. With Tendulkar in poor form, Dravid was promoted to open; he responded with a fifty, and Azharuddin matched him. But when Donald removed them in quick succession, India folded. A target of 180 meant they had to bowl out rather than contain their opponents; their attempt started well enough, but Kallis stepped up the pace when required.
Man of the Match: J. H. Kallis. Attendance: 16,633.
