Collingwood sparkles


The first one-dayer was washed out.
Batting first, South Africa made a below par 250 for nine in 50 overs with Alviro Petersen leading the way with a composed 64. Opener Hashim Amla made 57, but the Proteas never could managed to accelerate at a desired pace.

Though England lost skipper Andrew Strauss and swashbuckling batsman Kevin Pietersen early on in the innings, by 12th over to be precise, they recovered splendidly through Collingwood and opener Jonathan Trott.
The third-wicketpair made 162 runs in a little over 30 overs to snuff out any hopes South Africa cherished.
