  South Africa innings (20 overs maximum) R B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal Q de Kock c †Dunk b Cummins 48 27 5 2 177.77
8.4 84.6 mph, got him, Cummins makes the breakthrough with a fast short ball! Banged in, little bit of cut on the ball and de Kock was hurried trying to pull, just a tickle of glove and it's safely pouched by Dunk 75/1
View dismissal RR Hendricks b Bollinger 49 48 5 0 102.08
15.2 77.8 mph, Dougie does it, Hendricks drags on! The ball was short and there to pull but maybe Bollinger had rolled his fingers over it, the batsman misjudged the stroke, bottom-edged the ball on to his body and then down to shiver leg stump. Falls just short of the fifty mark, like his opening partner 117/3
View dismissal RR Rossouw c Abbott b Boyce 4 4 0 0 100.00
11.1 46.8 mph, tossed up, Rossouw charges... and picks out long-on! Success for Boyce, he keeps tossing it up, Rossouw was trying to clear the short, straight boundary - the ball was a little wide, he wasn't to the pitch and dragged it straight to the fielder 88/2
DA Miller not out 34 26 3 0 130.76
View dismissal F Behardien c Abbott b Faulkner 1 5 0 0 20.00
16.4 84.8 mph, shortish and taken on... only to pick out deep midwicket! Behardien's brief, painful sally is brought to a close, slogging across the line but never had to the distance to that part of the ground 122/4
View dismissal JP Duminy* c Maxwell b Faulkner 2 5 0 0 40.00
18.1 71.4 mph, tries to get to the pitch, Duminy lifts a length ball to deep midwicket! Another one goes, the SA innings is dribbling to a close... He was hitting across the line and didn't really get hold of it 133/5
View dismissal D Wiese c †Dunk b Faulkner 0 1 0 0 0.00
18.3 84.3 mph, gone first ball, edging a pull through to the keeper! Two in three balls for Faulkner, the slump continues. It was another back-of-a-length delivery, Wiese hadn't got his eye in and succeeded only in feathering it through to Dunk 134/6
RJ Peterson not out 4 4 0 0 100.00

  Australia innings (target: 146 runs from 20 overs) R B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal BR Dunk c & b Peterson 14 8 0 1 175.00
6.4 50.3 mph, on the attack again - but he's hit it straight into Peterson's bread basket! Really sharp catch and he squeals in celebration... Dunk didn't get to the pitch this time, the ball maybe gripped a little and hit higher up the bat, still flew pretty quickly but Peterson was alert to grab the chance 53/2
View dismissal AJ Finch* c de Lange b Wiese 33 25 2 2 132.00
4.4 79.4 mph, oh, gone, shovelled to backward square leg! Finch knew what he'd done as soon as he hit it, pulling a genuine short ball straight to the fielder. The stump mic picked up his "Oh no!" as South Africa celebrated gleefully. That might change things 40/1
View dismissal SR Watson c Miller b Peterson 5 10 0 0 50.00
8.1 52.3 mph, a wicket follows a wide again, Watson ballooning a drive to extra cover running back! The ball was wider than Watson would have liked, he skipped out but made a mess of trying to smash this down the ground. It's another fast start followed by a stumble - but whose will be more damaging? 62/4
View dismissal NJ Maddinson b Wiese 4 6 0 0 66.66
7.6 68.6 mph, or maybe that was a bit of luck, as Maddinson plays on! The extra delivery earns a wicket, another cutter from Wiese, angled across and Maddinson played the wrong line, took the inside edge and deflected down on to off stump to zing the bails 61/3
View dismissal GJ Maxwell c Hendricks b Peterson 23 15 2 1 153.33
12.5 53.6 mph, Maxwell whirls the arms but this is a huge top edge... superbly taken on the run by deep midwicket! Just as the match seemed to be back in Australia's court, the required rate only a run-a-ball, Maxwell has exploded all over himself. Third wicket for Peterson, equalling his T20I best 100/5
CL White not out 41 31 4 1 132.25
View dismissal JP Faulkner c Miller b de Lange 9 8 0 1 112.50
15.5 89.4 mph, gone this time, slogging down the ground! Maybe didn't need to try the trick twice, Faulkner falls picking out the man at long-on for a simple catch 125/6
View dismissal PJ Cummins c & b Wiese 3 7 0 0 42.85
17.4 74.9 mph, got him, Wiese snaffles a leading edge! That's what South Africa need, dot balls won't win it for them, Wiese has his third wicket, he's been bowling with canny changes of pace, Cummins tried to work it to leg and only succeeded in popping the ball back to the bowler 135/7
View dismissal SA Abbott lbw b Abbott 5 8 1 0 62.50
19.3 84.5 mph, slips in the yorker, Abbott, S is hit on the boot and Abbott, K has the wicket! Up goes the finger, gets the decision even if it looked a touch leg side... Australia are eight down and still need two to win 144/8
