    10.6 a big heave down the ground, it looks elegant enough, but he's not middled it at all! Right off the toe, a gentle back-pedal at mid-on, and Australia have the breakthrough! 70/1
    24.1 shortish and Rossouw pulls, sends it swirling into the Joburg atmosphere - taken at deep square leg! Not the most calculated of risks, looked like a long boundary out that direction and it was well short of carrying, Hastings again the bowler to strike. Looks like it was a cross-seamer that did for Rossouw... and a bit of a lucky take from Worrall, the sub fielder, as it went through the hands but landed in his lap 146/2
    43.2 nailed out to cow corner, but Smith is well placed and du Plessis has picked out the man, five metres in from the rope! The skipper departs as Australia regain a toe-hold in the final overs 308/4

    41.6 finally, the breakthrough! Marsh serves up the offcutter and Duminy, on the charge, chops onto his stumps! He died by his own sword there, but it was thrilling acceleration while it lasted 296/3
    48.2 chopped hard out to point, and a tumbling stop ... in fact, it's a catch! Zampa reacted so calmly that no-one really noticed it was out. The umpires are taking a look, and lo and behold, the ball buried in his breadbasket! Time is called on Miller Time... 347/6
    47.1 heaved hard and violently out to deep midwicket! Tremain has his maiden ODI wicket, and it's come at a vital moment! Got right under the shot and gave Warner several decades to contemplate the ball as it fell back to earth. But he judged it just fine and South Africa's charge still hasn't quite materialised 334/5

    1.2 short ball, Finch scoops it straight up - bagged by Behardien at square leg! Done for pace, I suspect, looking to get on with it, as he had to, but the stroke was all sorts of wrong, hoicked up like a white flag and South Africa have their first 3/1
    20.5 short and slammed to short midwicket, and that is the end of Warner! Duminy's golden arm strikes, it was dragged down and could have been dispatched to any corner of the Highveld. Instead, he finds Miller's bucket hands, and that is probably curtains for Australia's hopes! 114/5
    6.1 fired down leg, thick inside edge... WHADDACATCH!!! Steyn gets Smith, though he has de Kock to thank, he flew to his left to hold the chance one-handed, before tumbling and rising in delight to be mobbed by his team-mates. Smiffy's gotta go, via to a worldie from Quinny; the only thing that perhaps helped was that Steyn bowled it so far down leg he knew where he had to start moving early 29/2
    10.6 bowled him, off stump pegged back! The pressure was building on Bailey and he went for the big shot, aiming down the ground but it wasn't quite there, seamed a fraction and he played around it as Parnell hit the bull's eye. Parnell then starts dabbing in celebration... that or he's short-circuiting 55/3
    16.1 ... like I was saying ... down the leg side, bouncing alarming and catching the glove, and de Kock shuffles to his left to pouch the opportunity! 87/4
    30.6 rapped on the pad, that's a huge shout, and a long pause for thought for the umpire, but up goes the finger! Australia have reviewed and understandably so, this is vital. He's right across the stumps, and under the new DRS rules, this could be Umpire's Call ... indeed it is! 183/6
    31.3 goes for the homer, maybe not short enough to pull, comes off the splice... and Duminy pouches it on the midwicket boundary! Two in four balls for SA and that probably puts the kibosh on Australia chasing from here 185/7
    35.5 takes on the cutter, picks out deep midwicket! Hastings is off, a hasty swipe across the line, not as much pace on the ball for him to work with and it sails straight to the man on the fence, Australia nine down and all but done 213/9
    34.1 ...and it nearly is now, as the returning Imran Tahir slides one through Mennie's defence! Flat and quick from the leggie and it scuttles past a swish to leg, via an inside edge, to hit the top of off 204/8
    37.4 bowled 'im! Lucky breaks the stumps, quick and straight and Zampa played around it backing away, which means South Africa win by a whopping 142 runs with a dozen overs to spare 219/10
