ICC World Twenty20 - 19th match, Group 2

Australia v South Africa

Australia won by 8 wickets (with 14 balls remaining)

0.1

Steyn to Warner, no run, goodish length on the off, a bit of inward movement there, Warner punches it back to the bowler, somewhat mistimed

0.2

Steyn to Warner, no run, ooh, that kept low and Warner was a touch fortunate there, couldn't get his bat down in time, got an under edge on the bounce to the keeper

0.3

Steyn to Warner, 1 run, short of a good length outside off, tries to punch that through extra cover, got a thick inside edge and Morne Morkel does well diving to his right at short fine, keeps them to a single

0.4

Steyn to Watson, no run, ooh, beaten, short of a good length and darts away as he rocks forward to defend, just goes past the outside edge

0.5

Steyn to Watson, no run, drops that short on the off and that is knocked down towards point from the crease

0.6

Steyn to Watson, 1 run, gets forward and across a hint there and pushes it wide of mid-on for a single, on target was Steyn

Australia 2/0   DW Steyn 1-0-2-0

2.1

Steyn to Watson, no run, goodish length on the off, a bit of an inside edge from Watson as he tries to hit through the line

2.2

Steyn to Watson, 1 run, shortish on the off, crunches it into the ground to play it over point but just a single on offer there

2.3

Steyn to Warner, 1 run, short of a good length, punches it wide of mid-off for a single

2.4

Steyn to Watson, 1 run, again short of a good length on off and middle, gets forward and defends it wide of midwicket for a single, steady going this

2.5

Steyn to Warner, 1 run, there is protection in the deep, holds it back this time, pulled from outside off towards deep midwicket for a single

2.6

Steyn to Watson, 1 wide, drops that one short outside off, a touch too short that and the umpire isn't going to spare that one, called a wide

2.6

Steyn to Watson, no run, beaten as he goes for a drive, not quite there though to hit, around a good length and he rocks forward, but not to the pitch, to drive it through cover, it nips away to beat him

Australia 10/0   DW Steyn 2-0-7-0

14.1

Steyn to Hussey, FOUR, Hussey attacks first up, short of a good length and he shapes up for a cut and he manages to get it past point and to the ropes, slashed hard at that one

14.2

Steyn to Hussey, 1 bye, slower one bowled full outside off and AB fumbles after Hussey leaves it alone

14.3

Steyn to White, FOUR, full toss and there was some outswing, Cameron White tried to defend it from the crease and it took the outside edge as it swung away, went past slip for a boundary

14.4

Steyn to White, no run, Well done AB, short of a good length, White tried to guide that to third man, got an inside edge and Ab flung himself to his left to snap that, saved four runs

14.5

Steyn to White, no run, pitched on a length on the off and that's been defended straight to extra cover

14.6

Steyn to White, no run, goodish length, on target and White chooses the defend that cautiously towards extra cover

Australia 118/2   DW Steyn 3-0-15-0
