South Africa v Australia

3.2

Cummins to Duminy, no run, down the leg side but it feathers the pad through to the keeper so Cummins escapes a wide

3.3

Cummins to Duminy, no run, excellent bouncer, good line over middle and off and Duminy - who has a history against the short ball - sways his head out of the way

3.4

Cummins to Duminy, 1 run, on leg stump, Duminy goes to flick it away and gets a leading edge but it lands away from the fielders

South Africa 12/2   JP Duminy 1* (3b)

4.1

Watson to Duminy, no run, starts very full and quite wide, jabbed into the off side

4.2

Watson to Duminy, 4 leg byes, swing from Watson and it clips the pad, rather than bat, and Wade can't quite get across with a dive

4.3

Watson to Duminy, no run, into the fifth over but Duminy decides to shoulder arms outside off

4.4

Watson to Duminy, 1 run, driven up to mid-off and they just need to scurry a touch to make the single

South Africa 25/2   JP Duminy 2* (7b)

5.1

Pattinson to Duminy, FOUR, things are starting to flow a little now, this time it's a cover drive from Duminy that races through the off-side field

5.2

Pattinson to Duminy, 2 runs, he follows that with another one but this time isn't timed quite so well

5.3

Pattinson to Duminy, no run, driven into the off side

5.4

Pattinson to Duminy, no run, he's getting plenty of chances to play his drive, but this one is nearly spooned to cover as it stops a fraction in the surface

5.5

Pattinson to Duminy, no run, backward point in action as he fields a square drive...Pattinson pitching full which encourages the drive

5.6

Pattinson to Duminy, no run, driven firmly to mid-off who is fairly deep but can stop the single

South Africa 35/2   JP Duminy 8* (13b 1x4)

6.4

Hussey to Duminy, 1 run, worked out to deep midwicket

6.6

Hussey to Duminy, no run, cramps Duminy for room on the back foot and he can't get it away. Tight start from Hussey, who will race through his overs

South Africa 40/2   JP Duminy 10* (16b 1x4)

7.3

Pattinson to Duminy, no run, short ball that he ducked under...touched 90mph according to the speed fun

7.4

Pattinson to Duminy, FOUR, he breaks the shackles with a pick-up over midwicket and it was well clear of the fielders. Was a decent ball, just T20 batting

7.5

Pattinson to Duminy, no run, good follow-up, a slower ball that devices Duminy into playing too early and missing his dab

7.6

Pattinson to Duminy, no run, another good one that scoots past the edge. South Africa not able to kick-on.

South Africa 58/2   JP Duminy 16* (24b 2x4)

10.1

O'Keefe to Duminy, SIX, that's a decent blow...O'Keefe's first ball disappears into the stand over midwicket and Duminy did really well because he was almost beaten in the flight

O'Keefe to Duminy, 1 run, cut out to deep cover

10.5

O'Keefe to Duminy, no run, touch shorter and takes Duminy on the pads

South Africa 67/2   JP Duminy 24* (28b 2x4 1x6)

11.1

11.2

Pattinson to Duminy, no run, landing on a length this time, and Duminy knocks it back to the bowler, who threatens to throw down the stumps

11.3

Pattinson to Duminy, 1 run, punched to deep mid-off with a high left elbow. They ran the single with great urgency, but there simply wasn't time for a second run

11.6

Pattinson to Duminy, 1 run, cracked through cover on the up, just the single to be had

South Africa 69/3   JP Duminy 26* (32b 2x4 1x6)

12.1

Bollinger to Duminy, 1 run, forced through cover point off the back foot to get Miller on strike

12.3

Bollinger to Duminy, 1 run, nicely played by Duminy, waiting on a length delivery and angling it deftly down to third man

12.6

Bollinger to Duminy, FOUR, a fortuitous edge! Duminy was aiming to run the ball down to third man once again but ended up playing it much finer than he had hoped. Still, he'll take the boundary any way he can get it

South Africa 79/3   JP Duminy 32* (35b 3x4 1x6)

13.2

Cummins to Duminy, 1 run, slower ball, and it's really slow! Duminy spotted it in good time, squeezing the ball through point

13.6

Cummins to Duminy, 1 wide, dug in short ... Too short, in fact, and he's called wide. That ballooned high over the ducking Duminy's head

13.6

Cummins to Duminy, 1 run, another slow off cutter, aimed at the pads, and Duminy picks up a single with a nudge to backward square

South Africa 84/3   JP Duminy 34* (37b 3x4 1x6)

14.1

Hussey to Duminy, 2 runs, he arrows one at the pads first ball, and is tucked to square leg

14.3

Hussey to Duminy, 1 run, hoicked out to deep midwicket, on the sweep.

14.6

Hussey to Duminy, 1 run, again Duminy uses his feet, flicking the ball to midwicket

South Africa 93/3   JP Duminy 42* (42b 4x4 1x6)

15.1

Bollinger to Duminy, 2 runs, squeezed out through point, and Duminy hurries back for the second. Good, hard running

15.2

Bollinger to Duminy, 1 leg bye, Bollinger finds the toe end of the bat with a full delivery, the ball ricocheting into Duminy's pads and going nowhere. Still, they take the chance to hustle a quick single, Bollinger running across and hoofing the ball just past the stumps

South Africa 96/3   JP Duminy 44* (44b 4x4 1x6)

16.2

Watson to Duminy, FOUR, a resounding crack off the bat as Duminy murders a pull to midwicket! This shot echoed round Newlands. Watson dropped it short without the pace to back up the length and Duminy absolutely hammered it away

16.3

Watson to Duminy, 1 run, Watson's back over the wicket now, and Duminy picks up a single with a jab to cover

16.5

Watson to Duminy, 1 run, clipped down the ground, and that's the half-century for Duminy. He's done really well to guide the innings after a wobbly start

South Africa 109/3   JP Duminy 50* (47b 5x4 1x6)

17.1

Pattinson to Duminy, FOUR, swung away to deep midwicket! That's just the start Duminy will have been hoping for in this over. Good shot too, a pick-up off a length delivery

17.2

Pattinson to Duminy, SIX, boom! Pattinson's length is really off here. Another back of a length delivery and Duminy's eyes just lit up, he stepped back and creamed it into the crowd beyond the deep midwicket boundary

17.3

Pattinson to Duminy, 1 run, a low, dipping full toss now from Pattinson, and it's driven out to deep cover

17.5

Pattinson to Duminy, no run, another slower ball from Pattinson. Duminy didn't quite pick it, was too early into the shot, and ended up tapping it back to the bowler

17.6

Pattinson to Duminy, SIX, six more! What fantastic timing on the shot. Pattinson floated down another low full toss and Duminy slapped the drive up and over deep extra cover. This one went even further than the last!

South Africa 132/3   JP Duminy 67* (52b 6x4 3x6)

18.3

Cummins to Duminy, OUT, Cummins strikes with the slower delivery! It was another looping offcutter, which Duminy actualy seemed to have picked as he bent into a slog sweep. He sliced under the ball however, to send it rocketing up into the night sky and back down into Watson's lap at cover

JP Duminy c Watson b Cummins 67 (60m 53b 6x4 3x6) SR: 126.41

South Africa 133/4   JP Duminy 67 (53b 6x4 3x6)
