Australia in South Africa T20I Series - 1st T20I

South Africa v Australia

Australia won by 5 wickets (with 3 balls remaining)

1.1

Cummins to Amla, 2 runs, drifts into Amla's hip and he flicks it away through midwicket to open his account as captain

1.2

Cummins to Amla, no run, that flew! Short of a length and it climbs off the surface to beat Amla's attempt at an upper cut

1.3

Cummins to Amla, no run, angled into the right hander and it's flicked off the hip but straight to short fine-leg

1.4

Cummins to Amla, no run, fuller this time on off stump, Amla meets it with a well-timed drive but picks out mid-off

1.5

Cummins to Amla, 1 run, hint of width this time but Amla can't really time his back-foot drive and it rolls between cover and mid-off

South Africa 5/1   HM Amla 3* (5b)

2.2

Bollinger to Amla, 1 run, that's typical of Amla, jumps onto the back foot then aims to whip the ball into the leg side although this time he couldn't find the gap as mid-on does the fielding

South Africa 8/1   HM Amla 4* (6b)
