South Africa in Australia T20I Series - 2nd T20I

Australia v South Africa

Australia won by 6 wickets (with 7 balls remaining)

4.3

Hilfenhaus to Amla, FOUR, great shot, on the pads and delectably flicked away through square leg

South Africa 33/0   HM Amla 21* (17b 1x4 1x6)   BW Hilfenhaus 0.3-0-8-0

7.5

DJ Hussey to Duminy, FOUR, safest place to score your runs! Hussey jumps up in agony as the ball sits up and draws and edge that Ronchi can't hold onto and the ball flies down to the ropes, it didn't even hit the gloves, so can't say its a drop

South Africa 46/3   JP Duminy 7* (6b 1x4)   DJ Hussey 0.5-0-6-1

12.2

Tait to Duminy, FOUR, welcome boundary! Tait bowls full down leg stump and Duminy uses the pace to flick down to fine leg, the first four for 27 deliveries, mind you

South Africa 75/3   JP Duminy 22* (19b 2x4)   SW Tait 2.2-0-19-0

12.6

Tait to Boucher, FOUR, slower delivery, 120ks, which Boucher clubs back over Tait's over

South Africa 83/3   MV Boucher 19* (18b 1x4)   SW Tait 3-0-27-0

14.4

Tait to Duminy, FOUR, nice meaty blow from Duminy, backing away to the sixth stump and clubbing the ball across the line, just picking it over the man at mid-on for a needed boundary

South Africa 99/4   JP Duminy 37* (26b 3x4 1x6)   SW Tait 3.4-0-33-0

14.6

Tait to Duminy, FOUR, top shot! Duminy is striking them well, this time he backs away and connects superbly, driving hard and past extra cover before the fielder can respond

South Africa 103/4   JP Duminy 41* (28b 4x4 1x6)   SW Tait 4-0-37-0

15.2

Hopes to JA Morkel, FOUR, fetch that! Morkel clubs the ball dead straight back past Hopes, who sways out of the way to save his block being knocked off, and neither long-off nor long-on get there

South Africa 107/4   JA Morkel 7* (6b 1x4)   JR Hopes 3.2-0-22-2

15.4

Hopes to Duminy, FOUR, swings across the line and inside edges smack past square leg

South Africa 112/4   JP Duminy 45* (29b 5x4 1x6)   JR Hopes 3.4-0-27-2

17.6

Bracken to Duminy, FOUR, very full and wide, he reaches out and edges wide of Ronchi for four

South Africa 136/5   JP Duminy 55* (35b 6x4 1x6)   NW Bracken 3-0-14-1

19.5

Bracken to Duminy, FOUR, on the stumps, slower ball, and superbly lapped with fine leg up

South Africa 155/5   JP Duminy 67* (40b 7x4 2x6)   NW Bracken 3.5-0-27-1
