Australia in South Africa T20I Series - 1st T20I

South Africa v Australia

South Africa won by 4 wickets (with 4 balls remaining)

1.5

Parnell to Clarke, OUT, timber! Parnell gets one, fullish on the off stump, held its line, Clarke had decided he would go after that one, bowled at 143 kmph, he makes room to smash that over extra cover, misses and the stumps take a beating!

MJ Clarke b Parnell 2 (7m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

Australia 5/1   DA Warner 2* (5b)   WD Parnell 0.5-0-3-1

3.2

Morkel to Ponting, OUT, poor shot really, hit a good length on middle and leg, Ponting stayed in his crease and tried to clear mid-on, wasn't to the pitch at all, ended up mistiming it towards Johan Botha who ran a few steps back and pouched it gleefully.

RT Ponting c Botha b Morkel 1 (7m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 20.00

Australia 16/2   DA Warner 10* (9b 1x4)   JA Morkel 0.2-0-0-1

9.1

Peterson to Warner, OUT, excellent reflexes by Peterson! Bowled full on the off stump, Warner picks the length and swats it firmly but straight towards the bowler, Peterson reacts well, bends down and takes it low.

DA Warner c & b Peterson 38 (37m 29b 4x4 1x6) SR: 131.03

Australia 70/3   DJ Hussey 25* (15b 1x4 2x6)   RJ Peterson 1.1-0-12-1

9.2

Peterson to MEK Hussey, OUT, run out, Australia are struggling now, turned away towards short fine where the fielder rockets in a powerful throw at the non-strikers end, Micheal Hussey has already set off for the single but isn't quick enough, dives full length but a direct hit catches him well short of his ground

MEK Hussey run out 0 (2m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Australia 70/4   DJ Hussey 25* (15b 1x4 2x6)   RJ Peterson 1.2-0-12-1

9.6

Peterson to Haddin, OUT, he's thrown it away! Flighted on the off stump, lands on a good length, Haddin lofts it lazily, no intent whatsoever in that stroke, finds Albie Morkel at long-off positioned exactly for some poor batting like that

BJ Haddin c Morkel b Peterson 0 (2m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Australia 71/5   DJ Hussey 26* (16b 1x4 2x6)   RJ Peterson 2-0-13-2

15.6

Peterson to White, OUT, identical stroke but not the result, struck it well but the ball was bowled much slower through the air, heaved it, but straight to deep midwicket where Duminy judges it to perfection

CL White c Duminy b Peterson 16 (19m 20b 0x4 1x6) SR: 80.00

Australia 116/6   DJ Hussey 55* (32b 2x4 4x6)   RJ Peterson 4-0-30-3

18.6

Parnell to Johnson, OUT, bowled 'im! Good stuff from Parnell, in the blockhole on middle, Johnson tries to dig it out on the leg side but is a little too late in bringing his bat down, misses and the stumps are rattled

MG Johnson b Parnell 10 (13m 10b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Australia 149/7   DJ Hussey 76* (40b 4x4 5x6)   WD Parnell 4-0-29-2
