Herschelle Gibbs hit 74 as South Africa reached 183-6 in 32.1 overs in the rain-affected fourth one-day international against England at Lord's here on Sunday.

Gibbs, 34 and no longer in the Test side, showed he remains a force in one-day international cricket with his 36th one-day half century after South Africa were put into bat in gloomy conditions by England captain Kevin Pietersen.

The opener was eyeing a 21st one-day century when he was bowled off his pads by Stuart Broad having faced 75 balls and hit five fours. For England, Andrew Flintoff took 3-21 from seven overs before rain interrupted the innings for a second time.
