ICC World Twenty20 - 19th match, Group 2

Australia v South Africa

Australia won by 8 wickets (with 14 balls remaining)

0.3

Doherty to Levi, OUT, and this goes straight through Levi's attempted drive and flicks out leg stump, what a start for Doherty. He seemed to get outside leg stump, exposing all three, this time trying to drive a good length ball into the covers, but it skidded on past his stroke and cleaned him up, the miserable run continues for Levi

RE Levi b Doherty 0 (2m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

South Africa 0/1   HM Amla 0* (0b)   XJ Doherty 0.3-0-0-1

2.1

Doherty to Kallis, OUT, oh edged and gone and Doherty gets another. It's a cracking delivery, tossed up on a length just outside off, Kallis pushed at it and got a thin edge to Wade to held the chance very well, it was a decent edge. What a start for Doherty, what a selection. Beautifully bowled, flighted nicely and a little turn this time gets the edge of Kallis

JH Kallis c †Wade b Doherty 6 (7m 7b 1x4 0x6) SR: 85.71

South Africa 8/2   HM Amla 2* (3b)   XJ Doherty 1.1-0-2-2

5.5

Watson to Amla, OUT, step across the stumps, goes to pull and gloved behind! Amla falls and Watson does the job again. A shorter ball, again not coming on as the batsman might expect, Amla went across his stumps to pull into the leg side, but was through with the stroke too soon and gloved a ball to Wade and walked straight off, what a blow for Australia

HM Amla c †Wade b Watson 17 (26m 15b 1x4 1x6) SR: 113.33

South Africa 33/3   JP Duminy 9* (10b 1x4)   SR Watson 0.5-0-3-1

10.1

Doherty to Duminy, OUT, and gets another one straight away! Duminy down the track gets beaten and is stumped by a country mile. More lovely flight by Doherty, drew Duminy down the pitch and he was no where near it, tried to adjust, I think the ball ended up going between his legs and my grandfather could have made that stumping with a cup of tea in one hand and a scone in the other

JP Duminy st †Wade b Doherty 30 (36m 25b 4x4 0x6) SR: 120.00

South Africa 64/4   AB de Villiers 9* (11b)   XJ Doherty 2.1-0-10-3

14.1

Watson to de Villiers, OUT, or not as the case may be! De Villiers slaps this straight to extra cover and is caught easily! It was a slower ball on middle stump, de Villiers backed away to try and go over the off side but misread the pace of the ball and could only chip it straight to the fielder who claimed a simple chance at chest height

AB de Villiers c Bailey b Watson 21 (36m 24b 0x4 0x6) SR: 87.50

South Africa 86/5   F Behardien 8* (11b)   SR Watson 2.1-0-12-2
