He pushed a single, giving the strike to Andrew Hall who hit a four, leaving 2 required off four balls.

He and Graeme Smith had a 187 run partnership, bringing the South Africans back into the game.

When Smith was out for 90, Gibbs shared another strong partnership, this time with AB de Villiers.

In reply, South Africa scored 438–9, winning by one wicket with one ball to spare.

The match has been acclaimed as the greatest One Day International match ever played For some years, there had been an intense rivalry between Australia and South Africa in One-Day Internationals, dating from the semi-final of the 1999 Cricket World Cup, where South Africa could only tie against Australia in a match they needed to win to progress to the final.

Australian captain Ricky Ponting chose to bat after winning the toss.

Adam Gilchrist and Simon Katich got the side off to a good start, both scoring fifties.

Ponting was dismissed after his drive shot was caught by Boeta Dippenaar in the 47th over.
